Ever since the launch of season X, Fortnite’s fan base have been going through a whirlpool of emotions. From bringing back old favourite POIs to crossovers with other game brands, Epic has been experimenting with various formulas to keep their fanbase happy.
Being the most played game in the planet at the moment, Fortnite has casual and full-time professional players. The game has now completed 10 seasons and Epic is still trying to find a middle-ground between the pros and the casual players. Season 9 was all about transportation and allowed players rotate between cities almost instantly with various forms of travel. In season X, hoverboards are the only vehicle-mode of transport that remains from the previous seasons. This is one among the many changes that have been incorporated in season 10.
Let’s sort these changes by “ Buzzing” and “Not so Buzzing”
The Buzzing Season X Changes
Old OG locations are back: Dusty depot, Retail Row and a new Tilted town now exist in the season 10 map. Tiled town has an added twist of “No Building and No Breaking” within the city. Retail Row is now loaded with different sized zombies.
Crossover Content : Paradise Palms now has an area dedicated to the upcoming Borderlands 3 video game. Players can drop into a specific area of the map and a borderlands filter is applied to the game, allowing players to experience the “comic” like visuals associated with Borderlands.
Map Changes Expected Every Week: Since the start of season X a rift beacon appears at a random city hinting for changes to happen within that city in the next available update. The old floating island located at loot lake can now be found at Fatal fields, along with the return of Kevin the cube.
New fun items are still being added: Items such as the zapper trap, junk rifts and fully automatic sniper have been introduced in season X. By the looks of it, the developers seems to be well on track to add more weapons, traps, healing items into the game.
The Not so “Buzzing” Season X Changes
B.R.U.T.E.S: Fortnite has never received more criticism for a change than introducing the “B.R.U.T.E” into the game. This giant sized robot can fire back to back missile, stomp through building and other such structures. The whole community raged with regards to how overpowered the B.R.U.T.E is and surely this might be Epic’s biggest regret of the season.
No more Combat Shotgun: In season 9, Combat shotgun came into the game giving players the ability to fire rapid shotgun shots and kill fully shielded opponent in under 2 seconds. Well, now they’ve removed it from the game forcing players to opt for the pump or tactical shotguns.
With just a third of the season remaining, Fortnite developers have many other surprises in store. Rift beacons are still popping up all over and changes to the map are inevitable. A Fortnite crossover with the upcoming movie “IT chapter 2” is what’s beyond the horizon for the coming week.
