Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3: Vibin’ has officially arrived, bringing with it a Battle Pass featuring Darth Vader and Indiana Jones, rideable wolves and boars, the return of Ballers and more.
Vibin’ follows the “Collision” event of Chapter 3 Season 2 and has made Fortnite’s Island “one giant party”. This party also brings some map changes, led by a new location called Reality Falls.
This new area is home to the Reality Tree and is filled with bouncy mushrooms, purple trees, waterfalls, caves full of loot, and more. The Reality Tree also sends out Reality Seed Pods, and when players plant the seeds from these pods, a Reality Sapling will grow. This sapling grows in the same spot from match to match, carrying better and better loot each time you weed it, until it yields mythic loot.
The Baller – the hampster-wheel-like vehicle with a claw on the front – is back for this new season and now has more health, can float on water, and is charged by a battery that will eventually run out. There will also be a Screwballer “high flying amusement park ride” that will take the party to an even higher level.
If hamster wheels aren’t your style, you can hop on a wolf or a bear to circle the island, and you don’t even have to dismount in combat as you can shoot and throw weapons as you ride.
The Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR), Hammer Assault Rifle, and Two-Shot Shotgun are some of the new weapons making their way to Fortnite this season, and some favorites – including the Sidearm Pistol, Revolver, Stinger SMG, Heavy Sniper Rifle, Firefly Jar, Harpoon Gun, Cowcatcher, Repair Tool and more – are returning.
As for the Battle Pass, Darth Vader will be unlocked at the beginning of the season and Indiana Jones will arrive later. Darth Vader is preceded in the Battle Pass by Evie (who unlocks immediately upon purchase), Snap, Adira, Stormfarer, Malik, and Sabina.
Battle Pass players can also build Snap – a living action figure with interchangeable heads, arms, legs and torso.
All of these changes come on top of a new Storm Sickness, which causes the upcoming storm to deal damage faster when you’re within its range. Luckily, you can heal yourself by exiting the storm.
