Patch Notes for Fortnite v25.00 - Chapter 4 Season 3

The Wilds await in Fortnite Battle Royale Chapter 4 Season 3. The center of the Island has collapsed, revealing a vast, hidden jungle with ancient secrets to discover. Ascend to canopies, ride raptors, and slide in the mud for speed and camouflage. Detect enemies from the canopies with the “Thermal DMR,” skate on vines firing the “Flapjack Rifle,” and turn opponents into spectators with the “Cybertron Cannon.”

Ride a Raptor!

Raptors are running wild in the jungle – take command of these jurassic creatures by jumping on top of them. Unleash your arsenal and leap to new heights as you ride.

What if you see a raptor egg instead? Nurture it and it'll automatically be your raptor when it hatches!

Go Wild With New Weapons

Thermal DMR

Battle in the jungle, see how a jungle animal sees. While looking through the scope of the Thermal DMR, turn on thermal vision to more easily detect your enemies.

Flapjack Rifle

Make heads turn as you best enemies and structures with the Flapjack Rifle. Heads won’t be the only thing turning — this new weapon features a spinning magazine! (You can find the Mythic version of this weapon from Vaults requiring Keycards)

Kinetic Boomerang

Throw the Kinetic Boomerang to hit enemies in its flight path… AND its return path. Miss your target? Recall the boomerang early to trigger a small explosion and try again!

Cybertron Cannon

There’s going wild, then there’s having a blast. Take up a Cybertron Cannon on the Island to launch a powerful, quick, and explosive projectile.

Wildwasp Jar

A hostile insect species known as Wildwasps inhabit the jungle, preferring to swarm around certain plants. Gather them in a jar to throw at enemies! (The Wildwasps set their sights on you? Jump in water or cover yourself in mud to get them off your tail)

Go Back in Time with Unvaulted Weapons

Drum Shotgun

There's a Mythic version too! Find the Mythic version from a POI rifting in.

Combat SMG

Be MEGA Prepared

There’s the new weapons, there’s the unvaulted weapons, but don’t forget about these Chapter 4 Season 2 carryovers:

Slide for Stealth

A jungle climate means mud, so master the terrain: slide in the mud for more speed than regular sliding and gain camouflage in the process.

Grind Vines for Victory

Take an adrenaline-pumping ride on grind vines, being able to use weapons at the same time.

Contend from the Canopies

You don’t need the ground to gain the high ground. Ascend to the jungle’s canopies and fire high from above! When you get back on the ground, find some mud for a clean (but also not really clean) getaway.

Fight with Flora

Use the power of new, dangerous vegetation to your advantage. Shoot a Bomb Flower to create an explosion, or shoot a Stink Flower to unleash toxic gas on nearby enemies. Need to heal up? Swing your Pickaxe at the helpful Slurp Plants.

There’s also a flower for mobility. Run into Hop Flowers to bounce around the jungle without worrying about fall damage!
