Today, Epic Games revealed the highly anticipated second season of their fourth chapter with the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 Mega Update.
We’ll dive right into the update notes but just wanted to mention that the new Mega city looks fantastic! Get ready for some Epic urban fighting with new weapons, new vehicles, and new augments.
In addition, there are a whole slew of new skins available from the Battle Pass.
Finally, the competitive season has been updated to allow more players to participate in a variety of solo, duo, and trio competitions.
There is a lot more to come, but first, let’s jump into the mega-update information released by Epic Games.
Become MEGA in Fortnite Battle Royale Fortnite Chapter Season 2 Mega. Ride the grind rails of “MEGA City” and swerve on its streets on a sports bike. Go beyond the neon towers to the rest of the new biome: cause Havoc at “Steamy Springs,” drive a Nitro Drifter to the “Drift Ridge” car track, sharpen your Kinetic Blade skills at “Kenjutsu Crossing,” and more!
New city, new streets, new vehicles:

VICTORY CROWN ROGUE
Be a flash of light. This two-person sports bike features high acceleration, sharp turning, and a boost-ready engine. Also known as the “Rogue Bike.”
Want a car instead? Get in this four-seater and use its handbrake to drift ‘round the bend.
Vehicle note: The Dirt Bike vehicle, Motorboat vehicle, Chonkers Off-Road Tires vehicle mod, and Cow Catcher vehicle mod are vaulted in Battle Royale in v24.00.
Go melee or ranged with Fortnite Chapter Season 2 Mega’s new weapons:
Acquire one of these katanas and perform the artful Knockback Slash. Not holding back? Show no mercy and perform the devastating Dash Attack. The Dash Attack has three charges that enter a cooldown upon use.
HAVOC SUPPRESSED ASSAULT RIFLE
Silenced, highly accurate, and fully automatic, take up this weapon to give a new meaning to “mega”: it’s not always bold and brash, it’s sometimes cool and confident. (Get the Mythic version from defeating the boss “Highcard”…)
HAVOC PUMP SHOTGUN
Like bold and brash better? Make a scene with this high-damage Shotgun. (Find the Mythic version from Vaults requiring Keycards…)
OVERCLOCKED PULSE RIFLE
Obtain this new Mythic Pulse Rifle from… a POI rifting in?
Experience the comfort of a Secret Lab chair as you explore the wizarding world with their Harry Potter Collaboration Chair!
MEGA City may be futuristic, but it’s still open to these unvaulted weapons:
HEAVY SNIPER RIFLE
DRAGON’S BREATH SNIPER
ALL HEISTED EXOTICS
In addition to new and unvaulted weapons, wield these Chapter 4 Season 1 carryovers:
Maven Auto Shotgun
Red-Eye Assault Rifle
Twin Mag SMG
Chug Cannon (Technically not a weapon but looks like one)
In Fortnite Chapter Season 2 Mega, Slurp Juice is now Legendary-rarity, restoring A LOT of Health and Shield fast. It also restores Health and Shield at the same time. Drink it before combat to help you come out on top! Find Slurp Juice from Keycard-requiring Vaults, a POI rifting in, or “Combat Caches.”
Roll new Reality Augments in Fortnite Chapter Season 2 Mega! Here are the seven new Reality Augments releasing with v24.00:
Loot will spawn nearby when you leave a hiding place. Can occur once per hiding place.
Nearby Chests are marked the first time you enter a POI.
Find a Slap Juice in every Chest you open. If the Chest already had a Slap Juice, it’ll have an extra one!
Gain medium ammo while sliding.
MEDIUM AMMO AMP
Your weapons using medium ammo will have an increased magazine size.
Weapons using Shotgun ammo have a chance not to consume ammo.
Eliminations refresh a cooldown for the Kinetic Blade’s Dash Attack.
Roll returning Reality Augments too! Become mega-er with these Chapter 4 Season 1 carryovers:
The streets aren’t the only way to get about MEGA City. Jump on its grind rails then skate around the buildings and your enemies. Even use your weapons as you ride!
Need a break from urban battle? Step foot on the fresh, teal-tinted grass of MEGA City’s surroundings. This city isn’t the only new location in Chapter 4 Season 2 — it’s just one part of a brand-new biome! Here’s a preview of this southeast addition to the Island:
Environment note: Snowballs, boars, wolves, crows, and frogs are vaulted in Battle Royale in v24.00.
FORTNITE CHAPTER 4 SEASON 2 MEGA CYBER
MEGA City isn’t the only futuristic city around. In the Cyber City Callout, we challenged island creators to create dynamic islands set in a cybernetic future. Little did these creators know, MEGA City was the inspiration! If you can’t get enough urban ambience, check out the Cyber City Discover row and jump into a curated selection of metropolises.
