Fortnite Chapter 3: Season 1 turns the island upside down, literally. This season has seen a brand new map, the addition of a sliding mechanic, New and old NPCs and more. The overview trailer released with the new chapter showed what players can expect to see in the sequel to Fortnite story telling. One of the features that was introduced shortly is dynamic weather. The latest Fortnite update added those dynamic weather changes and reintroduced the Flare Gun.
Two types of weather were introduced: tornadoes and lightning. While these weather patterns may seem threatening, they can be used to your advantage. If you spot a tornado forming, you can run towards it and it will send you spinning through the air with it. You can use your glider to get out or wait until the tornado pushes you out. They can prove to be a useful strategy to get out of a difficult situation or to swing to the next round.
If you spot dark clouds forming in the sky, it means the lightning is ready to strike. Being struck by lightning will deal a small amount of damage to you, however, you will gain a temporary speed boost from it. After you’ve been hit once, you won’t be hit again in the same match. You can also increase your chances of being attacked by hoping for a body of water below the cloud. If not, you can climb to the highest point of the land under the cloud.
Flare Gun is back to cause even more chaos
In addition to the addition of dynamic weather in Fortnite, Flare Gun has not been improved. The newest addition to the arsenal can be found on the ground, in chests, or in supply boxes. From now until January 17, there is a high chance you will encounter a tornado. It will be interesting to see how much fan favorite they are as the season progresses.
