What to expect in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2

Over the last 48 hours we've been given multiple official Tweets about what's coming in the new season, but there are still a few items and features suspected to be coming to Chapter 4 Season 2 that are yet to be confirmed by Epic Games.

Thank you to @ShiinaBR and @HYPEX for the helpful hints and teasers of the items that may be on their way.

Live Hints and Teasers

Epic Games has been going full force with teasers and hints across social media today. They've dropped a new intro trailer for Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2, which again confirms the Neo-Tokyo map theme and a few of the Battle Pass skins. We now also know this season is called Fortnite Mega.

As the current season is starting to come to a close, something new has popped up on the map. A red rift has appeared on the map above the destroyed Rift Gate near The Citadel.

With the recent Tweet from @FortniteGame, it looks like the next Fortnite season map will be a Futuristic/Neo-Tokyo theme, which is a huge contrast with the current map that's filled with Forts, Turrets and large areas of greenery.

Also, the teaser trailer confirms that Grind Rails will be a part of this map, giving you another way of traversing the terrain to eliminate the competition.

Alongside the new theme, we're expecting to see Lucky Landing return, a new Neo-Tokyo POI appear and for 'Futuristic Motorbikes' to be dotted around the map.

Attack on Titan

A recent Tweet from @FortniteGame has confirmed that Attack on Titan is coming to Chapter 4 Season 2. The image attached to the post also seems to confirm the reports that the new map will have a Neo-Tokyo theme.

Fans of the popular Anime may be happy to learn that Eren Yeager is expected to be the Secret Skin in the Chapter 4 Season 2 Battle Pass. There are reports that there's a new Mythic Weapon that's based on Eren's Waist Grappler too.

We now also know that the following Attack on Titan themed cosmetics may be available in the new season, as well as five or more hidden items:

  • Eren Yeager - Skin
  • Scout Regime Salute - Emote
  • Crossed Swords - Banner Icon
  • 'Ice Fist' of Titan - Pickaxe
  • Angry Eren - Animated Emoji
  • Weapon Wrap

Resident Evil

Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield are expected to fight their way into the item shop for the next season of Fortnite.

With the Resident Evil 4 remake due out at the end of March, we're confident that this leak will definitely happen.

Star Wars

It looks like Star Wars may be set to do another collaboration with Fortnite. This time, it seems that not only can you grab a Lightsaber to become champion but you may actually be able to use the Force too.

There are also reports that there are a minimum of two new Star Wars themed skins that will be added either at the beginning of the season, or when the Star Wars collaboration goes live.

New Skins

As well as Eren Yeager being the secret skin for the Chapter 4 Season 2 Battle Pass, there may be five brand new skins also included in the pass. At the moment it's unclear if they'll be in the item shop or part of the BP, but a new Drift Skin and a new Lizard Skin may be on the way too.

New Augments and Reboots

According to @HYPEX, Chapter 4 Season 2 of Fortnite is set to bring in some new and rather useful Augments.

Legendary Augments are said to be able to reboot you when you die, which could be very helpful at any point in the game, increase your max shield and even give you siphon.

As with everything so far, nothing official has been said about Season 2 from Epic Games yet.

New Weapons/Returning Weapons

With a new season comes the potential for new weapons, and so far we are expecting to see:

  • Katanas
  • New Swords
  • New Pistol
  • New Shotgun
  • New Pickaxe

There are rumours that the Pump Shotgun will be returning to all modes once the new season begins.

The Red-Eye Assault Rifle is one of our picks for the Best Fortnite Weapons, so we're quietly hoping that this weapon sticks around.

New Mode

Last but not least, there has been a recent rumour that there is a brand new mode heading to Fortnite. It seems that the long-awaited first person mode might not be too far away, with @ShiinaBR and @HYPEX stating it in recent tweets.

That's everything we know so far about the next season of Fortnite, we will update this page once we know more.
