Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 Patch Notes, Update v12.00

The 'Top Secret' season — the second of Fortnite Chapter 2 — has been officially launched and it comes with a lot of new features. Epic Games seems to have listened to the feedback from its community in addressing some of the issues specific to Chapter 2 Season 1, such as the lack of mobility and new landmarks.

New landmarks

This season's plot is based on the rivalry between two secret organizations: Ghost and Shadow. Also, players will be able to visit new locations throughout your adventures on the new map.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 map changes revealed!

As announced in the teasers, the Fortnite map underwent some modifications in Chapter 2 Season 2.

In addition to these new locations, there are some innovative features:

  • Secret tunnels allow you to move to various predefined locations on the map.
  • Putting an agent on the ground and then scanning his face while carrying it will allow you to open locked doors.
  • Special weapons are carried by agents.

New weapons

The problem of the lack of diversity of weapons had been detrimental to Season 1. This new season seems to be making things right as Epic Games has reintegrated some popular weapons and items, in addition to bringing in some brand new ones.

Epic Games has added a large amount of Secret Agent themed items with the launch of Chapter 2 Season 2: explosives, weapons, grenades, and more!

New feature: Throw healing items

Here is a feature that can be very useful at all levels, but especially in competition. Players will be able to throw healing or shield items to their allies.

In its new update 12.0 — starting point of Chapter 2 Season 2 — Fortnite has implemented an interesting new mechanic: you can now throw your healing items to your teammates.

Interface and Lobby Changes

  • The Challenge Table shows the locations where you can best complete your missions.

Upgrade Vault

Maya's challenges will allow you to customize the skin ad infinitum.
