Some big changes have come to items this season. Traps have been taken out, but C4 and Grapplers have returned.
The map has been changed as well, including some new areas for top secret surveillance: a volcano hideout, agency HQ, secret lair, oil rig, giant yacht, and a cave with a shark’s head.

Victory Royales with SCUF
Building during combat efficiently is essential to win in Fortnite; quickly switch between combat and build mode, jump, and place building pieces using paddles on the SCUF IMPACT for PlayStation 4 and SCUF Prestige for Xbox One.
With the Vantage 2, you have two additional buttons, Sax Buttons, to quickly cycle through weapons as well as more building pieces to quickly gain the upper hand in combat.
Each SCUF has interchangeable thumbsticks to suit your playstyle. Fortnite Chapter 2 introduced new ways to enhance your preferred playstyle whether than be defensive or aggressive, you can select the best thumbsticks to suit your needs.
For Defensive Players, be quick to move and be steady with your aim: we recommend a Short Concave Thumbstick on the left and a Tall Domed Thumbstick on the right.
For Aggressive Players, be quick to move and to aim: we recommend a Short Concave Thumbstick on the left, and a Short Domed Thumbstick on the right.
