Six Tips for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6
If you’re still getting used to what’s new in the Primal season, or just wondered “what’s that all about?”, we’re here to help cover some of the best tips as you run wild in Chapter 2 Season 6.
1 - You’re Mine: Meet the Cuddle Fish
On the Island, players usually associate fish with defense -- acquiring health, shield, and affecting movement. One of the season’s newest fish, the Cuddle Fish, brings a new school of thought.
After catching one, toss it on the ground to set a proximity attack that will ambush your opponents.
2 - Meat: Stave Off the Sweats
Just like fish, the roaming Wildlife are an excellent resource for survival. Hunt them to get Meat.
Keeping Meat in your inventory not only means you can consume it to quickly recover your HP, but you can also use it to lure predators towards your enemies.
There are also rumors you can tame aggressive Wildlife, convincing them to join your pack and hunt alongside you.
3 - Make It Your Way
Following last week’s Crafting post, if you’re looking for a quick tutorial on crafting weapons, here’s a few of our favs:
Makeshift Shotgun + ⚙ = Pump Shotgun
🏹 + ⚙ + Shockwave Grenade = Shockwave Bow
Primal Bow + 🐸 = Stink Bomb Bow
There are lots more combos after that. Check the Crafting section of your Inventory tab and discover them all.
Looking for quick access to Mechanical Parts? Stop by areas like Risky Reels or Retail Row and harvest parked cars. Animal Bones more your style? You can harvest Bones found in the environment, like the ones found at Primal Pond, for ingredients if no Wildlife are nearby.
4 - Primal Points of Interest
After the Zero Crisis, a tower known as The Spire stands in the center of the Island. Its mysterious power has stretched to several Guardian Towers, and POIs near the center of the map have undergone drastic changes.
Explore the unique architecture surrounding The Spire, the scrappy but formidable Boney Burbs, the fruitful Colossal Crops, and the glorious sights of the Island’s orange center.
Protip: As you begin exploring these areas impacted by the Zero Crisis, you’ll find more Animal Bones for crafting in these locations.
5 - Get the Jump on Your Opponents
Those who successfully deliver Guardian Orbs to The Spire will be rewarded for their bravery with a high-flying reward from the ancients.
Skilled players that grab an orb from the Guardian Towers can bring it back to The Spire to receive a Mythic Item: Jump Boots!
Three jumps in succession will launch you into the air and deploy your glider for insane map traversal. Bail on a losing fight or swoop in on unsuspecting foes!
6 - What’s New with Characters & Bars?
New Characters are now stationed across the Island, and that means new offerings and services too!
Trade your hard-earned Bars in for upgrade components like Mechanical Parts from Cole, or chat with Bushranger and ‘disguise’ yourself as a Prop to fool your opponents.
Several Exotic items have outlasted the Zero Crisis too. Mark someone’s location with Power Chord’s Shadow Tracker or bounce your way to victory with Hop-Rock Dualies, courtesy of Gutbomb. And be on the lookout for even more unstable Exotics in the weeks to come!
Uh, what about those Eggs?!?
We’re not really sure we want to touch that one yet. You should stay away, too.
