V5 introduces a new vehicle option called the ATK, or All Terrain Kart.

There's a lot more to explore in the latest Season 5 update and you can check out the full patch notes here.

The new Battle Pass also launches with Season 5, and as ever it can only be purchased in-game and costs 950 V-Bucks.

It sounds like there will be a ton of new stuff to discover on the map, and the new All Terrain Kart will be flawless for exploration with your squad.

The biggest change pertains to the new Rifts that are scattered all throughout the "Fortnite" battle royale map. The roof of the kart also acts as a bounce pad. This new vehicle can hold your whole team, and it's driven by working together as rear passengers to lean back and release at the same time for high jumps, and get a speed boost after drifting. "Test your courage and step through a Rift", says Epic. Polygon speculates that it might even transport players to an entirely different map.

But if drivers like Vettel are getting off lightly it shows a lack of consistency from the stewards when incidents do occur. However, for another week, the team kept him out and he subsequently surrendered the lead on lap 47 with his tyres wearing.


As always with a Fortnite patch there are a bunch of fixes and performance improvements, with some changes too in weapon balancing. The center of the 7th, 8th and 9th Storm circles can now shift in random directions instead of just simply shrinking. The very first Storm circle will also consistently do 1 damage regardless of how long the player has been stuck in the Storm.

The lush, green forests that Fortnite players had come to know so well has been replaced by a desert, which should help to freshen things up for those who had grown exhausted of seeing the same scenery for months.

"After firing a shotgun, another shotgun can not be fired for a very short time".

Another change is how players are able to earn extra XP when playing big team modes.

As you can tell, that's three different settings for three different instances in which you can now use motion controls.
