Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 Adds Bounty Hunters


Following the Galactus Event, Epic Games released new information regarding Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5, including new features like bounties and characters like Mando and Baby Yoda from the Mandalorian.

In this new update, Fortnite’s developers gave players a new mechanic to play with bounty hunting. In addition, bounties blend in perfectly with iconic characters and weapons from different franchises, starting with Mando and Baby Yoda. Finally, the Fortnite lore made a deep impact on the island, making it a new experience for fans to wander around it.

Following the Galactus Event, Zero Point’s properties have changed the Fortnite island. New biomes like an abandoned colosseum, a dense jungle, and a forest appeared on the famous map. Since the desert is the starting point of the events that just unfolded, it is now covered by crystals, giving it a mysterious vibe.

This Fortnite Season 5 follows the footsteps of its predecessors and heavily relies on its characters and story. This time, fighters need to help Agent Jones fight characters from other dimensions that suddenly appeared on the Fortnite map following the event of “The Loop”. Jonesy already hired a few bounty hunters to reach this goal, including Mando and Grogu, alias Baby Yoda, from the trendy show The Mandalorian.

Quests and bounties are now a live part of Fortnite’s gameplay. They can range from killing specific enemies to simply walking around a specific part of the map. These additions to the game are not mandatory but award players with bars, a new type of currency. With it, players can request helps, intelligence, upgrades, or new types of weapons. This new feature collides with the new bounty hunters, who will be the ones giving players missions. It is also possible to challenge these characters in an epic duel to win more loot.

Among these new Fortnite guns are the famous Mandalorian long-range sniper rifle or the Dragon’s Breath Shotgun. Epic Games also stated that new weapons should be coming as the Fortnite Chapter 2 season 5 advances, opening the doors to many other crossovers.

Still, it is not mandatory to complete these quests and bounties. Players will be able to fill their inventories with bars scattered across the map. This avoids situations when committing to a mission shifts the attention away from killing all enemies on the map. Quests will be viewable in the menu, around the same spots as challenges.

With this Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5, Epic Games gave players new features to experiment with alongside iconic partners to work with. The addition of characters from the Mandalorian will also give build more hype for at least a couple of weeks.
