There are a couple of new locations, Paradise Palms and Lazy Links, as well as a few other unnamed locations. Weekly challenges are available for anyone who purchases the Season 5 Battle Pass, which can be had for 950 in-game "V-Bucks", or roughly $10. It looks like a sort of off-road golf kart, which is no less than you'd expect from Fortnite. Now the servers have gone live, we have jumped in to get a sneak peek at all the changes to Fortnite season 5's map.

Fortnite Season 5 has arrived alongside new content and Weekly Challenges.

As well as new skins and a new Battle Pass, Epic Games has added brand new locations and a whole new biome which completely changes the look of the map.

Starting in Season 5, progressive challenges will no longer be restricted to a single season. 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.

One of the main skins of the season 5 Battle Pass is Rangarok which can be upgraded with new items as players progress further through the Battle Pass tiers. You'll now be able to see how many pellets made contact with your enemy, through the reticle, and the spread pattern for each shot will become consistent. If you've found anymore that aren't listed in the image above, feel free to drop us a tip in the comment section so we can make sure to add it to this list! Most importantly, however, there will be a small delay when you want to fire a shotgun straight after using another, so this will stop people stacking and spraying the hell out of each other with pumps.

In 50v50 or 20v20 modes, you'll now get bonus XP up to three times per match for reviving teammates.
