If you've been playing Fortnite the past few months, you've probably noticed the comet that was heading toward Dusty Depot. No matter your thoughts on the game itself, it was an ingenious marketing ploy.
Fortnite Battle Royale remains free-to-play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and, most recently, mobile. Pull your attention away from Dusty Divot and Risky Reels and you'll find other new areas that aren't labeled on the in-game map.
As expected, all those meteorites we've seen flying around in the sky have come crashing down, creating a few new areas to explore and leveling one popular landing spot (don't worry, Tilted Towers is still there). Visit the main impact crater and you'll discover Hop Rocks, a new gravity-defying item that allows you to jump higher for a limited time.
Potential superhero/villain bases aside, there's also something much different in another area of the map. At tier 23, you'll get Teknique, which looks like some sort of DJ, and tier 47 unlocks Zooey, a female skin with green pigtails and a pink outfit. Smaller meteor crash sites are also scattered throughout the map, but the big one only affected Dusty Depot.
If you want to buy your way to level 100, you'll skip the 950 V-Bucks Battle Pass and go straight to the 2,880 V-Bucks Battle Bundle. This new superhero content comes in a form of a quest line which includes a story divided into five parts called "Save the World". This is also the quickest way to earn experience points and rank up to Tier 100.
Epic Games have been smart with a slow implementation of clues that all pointed toward a major disaster on the map.
That map is going to lead you to Loot Lake. That said, there is a benefit to buying the new Battle Pass as soon as possible if you are motivated like we are.
Otherwise, the comet shouldn't make make of an impact on actual gameplay.
This setting can be helpful to players who use external programs to remap their controller input and need the game to ignore the controller input.
