'Fortnite' Season 5 Adds New Locations, ATK Vehicle And Rifts

As expected, the map has changed following the rocket launch and subsequent appearance of mysterious rifts. Other un-named POI have also been added to the island.

There's also a new vehicle, the All Terrain Kart (the ATK) which will accommodate your whole squad.

The patch notes also tease new Rifts that can be interacted with.

One of the biggest gameplay adjustments involves the shotgun, with the development team creating a short amount of time between switching between two of the weapon. The ATK also features a speed boost after drifting, the roof acting as a bounce pad and passengers in the back being able to help the driver leap over vehicles by leaning back and releasing. Now, they have been replaced with Paradise Palmsn (which dominates the southeastern corner of the map) and Lazy Links (a golf course in the central northern area).

The latest change to Shotguns for Season 5 doesn't have everyone convinced.

For most South Koreans, there's no real training, with people standing around in gathering spots, staring into their phones or looking frustrated.

Interestingly, the centre of some Storm circles will now shift in random directions as well as shrink. Progressive challenges no longer run out at the end of a season, with players able to complete them at their own pace rather than having to rush. "Fortnite" players will now earn XP when they revive their teammates in 50vs50 and Teams of 20 matches, according to Engadget.

One of the biggest changes implemented by the 5.0 update is the new ATK, and I bet you're dying to know the Fortnite All Terrain Kart location and how to jump when you and your buddies are riding in it.

Auto-fire has also been added as an option in the iOS game - you can toggle it on and off in the settings menu.
