What’s new in Fortnite Season 6: Primal, Animals & a lot more

The new season of the popular game Fortnite is upon us. The latest upgrades dig even deeper into the battle royale’s reality-spanning narrative. Epic Games officially launched season 6 of the game’s second chapter, dubbed “Primal.” It takes place directly after the “Zero Crisis Finale” that concluded season 5 and introduced a new prehistoric biome to the island.

When users update and start playing the season for the first time, they’ll be greeted with a quick cinematic following a short-yet-intense single-player adventure where you help Agent Jonesy attempt to save reality.

Fortnite Season 6: New Weapons and Crafting

Upgrading weapons have altered a little in Season 6, with players now having a crafting tab in their inventory. Players can now combine makeshift weapons with animal bones to make a powerful primal weapon or use mechanical parts to make good old-fashioned automatic weapons like the Assault Rifle and Revolver.

New Weapons in Primal

Bows, however, have even more possibilities. Again they can be crafted into mechanical or primal forms but can then be combined with other weapons and substances to get even more powerful weapons – try forging together a mechanical bow and grenades.

Many of the new weapons, this season is early versions of existing guns – as well as
the addition of several new bows:

  •  Mechanical Explosive Bow
  • Mechanical Shockwave Bow
  • Primal Stink Bow
  • Primal Flame Bow
  • Primal SMG
  • Primal Shotgun
  • Primal Rifle
  • Primal Pistol
  • Makeshift Submachine Gun
  • Makeshift Shotgun

Fortnite also has a habit of bringing items in and out of rotation – with the biggest news from
this update is the return of the pump shotgun.
