Fortnite Battle Royale v6.0 Patch Notes Highlights

FORTNITE season 6 is up and running with a brand new map changes and POIs including the Haunted Castle, Loot Lake's Floating Island and Corrupted Areas. Loot Lake is still a thing, by the way.

Why it matters: Just when you think you've got the ideal Fortnite Battle Royale strategy figured out, Epic drops a new update that radically alters how the game is played. In the game, players can pick up and consume the stones which cause temporarily invisibility. As far as I know, these pets don't do anything besides sit inside of your backpack, but they're super adorable even if they aren't there for anything too useful.

In areas like Fatal Fields, tall crops let you hide from your opponents when you're low on health. You also receive increased movement speed and you're free of any fall damage. Remote explosives, the LMG, Impulse Grenades and Bounce Pads have also been removed from the game.

They are not seismic changes this time around, with Epic Games not putting in vast, sprawling new areas, but just a few new places to entertain us all. Your companion options include a small dog, a dragon and a chameleon.
