Fortnite: Season Four Patch Finally Reveals Where the Comet Landed

Fortnite: Season Four Patch Finally Reveals Where the Comet Landed

When it comes to Fortnite, it's been a season of teases and leaks, with plenty of speculation thrown into the mix, especially in regards to the comet streaking through the sky. Away from the crash site stands Risky Reels, a new location situated on the map's eastern corner, north of Wailing Woods.

Epic Games has announced Season 4 of Fortnite has officially kicked off with hundreds of new rewards for players to unlock via the Season 4 Battle Pass, and more.

Now that the comet has hit the Fortnite world, shards of the heavenly destroyer are scattered across the map, altering the very landscape that players have memorized over the last few months. On May 1, fans of Epic Games' Battle Royale will be able to jump into the superhero-themed season and complete new and unique challenges.

What was once "Dusty Depot" - a set of buildings smack in the center of the island - is now "Dusty Divot", an impact crater. Fortnite is supported by in-game purchases for cosmetic items like character skins and the like. The developer also launched a video announcing Season 4.

The smash-hit online shooter game, which sees 100 players battling each other to survive on a vast island, was updated on Tuesday, with a selection of new items and emotes. While many players are incredibly excited about the new Battle Pass, there are many more changes the latest patch brought to the game. Check out this trailer for Fortnite Season 4. If you open the map after falling from the Battle Bus, you'll immediately see a huge crater in the area Dusty Depot was.

Epic Games has confirmed in the season 4 update that 'you are no longer limited to just the 6 slots on your emote wheel for Sprays and Emotes and can now use any of the ones you own in a match'. However, the Fortnite Season 4 theme is still not known, and details would start rolling over as Season 4 is adopted massively. The Blockbuster challenges require you to complete full weeks of challenges, but don't make it clear what the rewards for actually doing so are.

Major changes to Fortnite: Battle Royale with the start of Season 4 includes changes to how headshots are registered.
