Get Your Game On

This week brings the start of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, “Resistance.” Building has been wiped out. To help maintain cover, you now have an overshield and new tactics like sprinting, mantling and more. Even board an armored battle bus to be a powerful force or attach a cow catcher to your vehicle for extra ramming power. Join the Seven in the final battle against the IO to free the Zero Point. Don’t forget to grab the Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Pass to unlock characters like Tsuki 2.0, the familiar foe Gunnar and The Origin.
