Nitro Barrels and Nitro Splash can now be found around Fortnite’s remixed map, and these offers big buffs to both vehicles, and your own character. Ramming a vehicle through a Nitro Barrel will have its ramming power, attached attack mod power, and speed increased, while you use less fuel. Zero complaints.

Meanwhile you can also throw the smaller Nitro Splash bottles on yourself or your car, and while Nitro buffed you will also have increased movement speed, bashing power, and reload speed. You will also enjoy nullified fall damage, and less stamina consumption. These buffs combined make you a speedy and frighteningly powerful foe to deal with in the battle royale.

War Bus Warpath – Fortnite Wrecked

The Battle Bus still drops you off in Chapter 5 Season 3, but the War Bus is the vehicle you need to watch out for. These buses patrol the island and you can actually take complete control of the vehicles. Warbuses can fire off EMPs which disable enemy vehicles and even lower Shields, allowing you to swoop in and end teams early. That’s if you can take control of it, of course.

Wrecked Battle Pass – Fortnite Wrecked

The new Wrecked Battle Pass includes Fallout’s T-60 Power Armor, Wastelander Magneto, and a whole bunch of other emotes and cosmetics to make you the envy of your friends in future seasons. For a full breakdown of the new unique skins on offer in the new battle pass, take a look at our Fortnite C5S3 Battle Pass skin list.
