Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 brings the powers of the gods to Battle Royale

Pandora’s box has been opened, unleashing the myths and mortals of Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2! Olympian legends — like thunder god Zeus and Hades king of the underworld — now rule the Battle Royale Island with otherworldly rage. Turn the tides against them like Poseidon in Chapter 5 Season 2: Myths & Mortals, out now!

Locations of legend

Grim Gate awaits

Brave enough to take on the horrors of The Underworld? Make your way to the west of the Island to Grim Gate, one of the ways to gain entry. But be wary of Cerberus, the three-headed dog who guards this location. Will you best him in combat?

Enter The Underworld

Welcome to the home of Hades: The Underworld. This dilapidated land is as barren as Hades’ heart.

The glorious Mount Olympus

Home of Zeus, Mount Olympus is the opposite of The Underworld — vast structures and monuments grace the great mountain. Take in all its glory, but keep your eyes peeled for opponents.

It’s a Brawler’s Battleground

Ares, the god of war, is always hunting for his next challenge. Venture south of Mount Olympus to Ares’ Brawler’s Battleground arena. (Heads up to all the Ares enthusiasts out there: he’ll be the Outfit of April 2024’s Fortnite Crew Pack).

Feel free to marvel at the locations that the gods have brought with them, but don’t forget what else has emerged from Pandora’s box…

Unleashing chaos upon the land

Harness the weapons and powers of the gods to carve your path to victory. Here’s a quick look at what you can wield in Myths & Mortals:

Zap opponents with the Thunderbolt of Zeus

Bring a storm down on your opponents with the Thunderbolt of Zeus. Unleash this power to rise into the air and hurl lightning bolts like Zeus himself. You can throw three lightning bolts total with a cooldown in between, so use this power wisely. To claim this Mythic power as your own, defeat Zeus or find it across the Island.

Grab the Warforged Assault Rifle

The Warforged Assault Rifle is a powerful yet unruly assault rifle forged for battle-hungry gods.With its high damage and rate of fire, no wonder it’s a favorite of Ares. Find one by exploring the Island or by defeating Ares for the Mythic version.

Go crazy with the Gatekeeper Shotgun

The Gatekeeper Shotgun fires three aggressive rounds at a short range, perfect for close combat. Forged for Cereberus by Hephaestus, this shotgun packs a bite almost as strong as Cereberus’. Defeat him to claim the Mythic version, or explore the Island to collect a normal one.

Herald danger with the Harbinger SMG

The Harbinger SMG is almost as unforgiving and relentless as Hades himself. This SMG has increased recoil and bloom the longer you fire it, so be precise! Become the harbinger of doom by defeating Hades for the Mythic version, or simply be a harbinger of chaos by finding a regular version on the Island.

Hunt for the Huntress DMR

Craving the hunt, the goddess Artemis prefers to keep distance between her and her prey. Created to punish mortals, the Huntress DMR is no slouch against the gods either. Take down Zeus to claim the Mythic version or find a normal version across the Island.

Take flight with the Wings of Icarus

The Thunderbolt of Zeus isn’t the only Olympian power! Soar through the skies and dive-bomb your enemies with the Wings of Icarus. Spreading your wings for too long will cause your wings to burn up, as will taking too much damage, so don’t get too carried away! (What’s that saying about flying too close to the sun?) This Mythic power can be found across the Island.

Not enough power for you? Later in the season, the Chains of Hades Olympian power will become available. It’s sure to pull you in so be on the lookout!

Myths & mods

Supernatural beings tend to be fans of advanced techniques. The new Thermal Scope mod can be attached to any scoped weapon, which doubles the scope view and adds a thermal effect that can be toggled on or off. Want to be quick like Hermes? With the Speedgrip mod, your movement speed while aiming will increase.

Mods can be found at Mod Benches, which are now located in Weapons Bunkers. The unchained bunkers will unlock in the middle of the match, so raid them for mods and weapons when the time comes!

The Myths & Mortals Battle Pass

Alongside Chapter 5 Season 2 comes the Myths & Mortals Battle Pass. With the Battle Pass, unlock rewards in Fortnite by earning XP across Fortnite Battle Royale, creator-made islands, LEGO Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival. Among these rewards are Outfits of some of the legends above, including Zeus and Artemis!
