Fortnite Season 6 Update Brings a Spooky Theme and Treats

Written by Luis Gutierrez, Podcast Director

The long anticipated season 6 is finally here! There was a lot of people guessing what the cube would do once it landed into Loot Lake and we finally have an answer along with new content for this season. The theme of this is a bit of a no-brainer. It’s Halloween.

For starters, one of the biggest changes to happen this season is the Loot Lake. Now since the cube went into the lake, the house is floating in the middle of the air. It became a hot drop again since it is offering more chests and a semi-new spot to land. The house is surrounded by the junk that was under water and not seen before. With the inside staying the same as usual. There are a few ways to get there. You could land, or ride the tornado up that’s keeping it afloat.

Haunted Hills joins the map. Including a graveyard that is a creepy factor for its Halloween theme. The castle is also very fitting for the location. There are a few items to grab but doesn’t offer much. If anything, it’s nice to look at in awe.

A noticeable change is found where the cube left its mark. This season introduces Shadow Stones. It makes the player invisible for a short amount of time. As well as super fast sprinting and ability to go through walls. Although being invisible seems like a handy addition, it doesn’t mean you can’t take damage.

These are the main changes to the game along with minor things. For one, the sky is a lot darker now, with lightning in the sky. Also, a nice little touch is some shops are costume stores and some buildings with Halloween decorations.

Lastly, the battle pass is set with an abundance of new skins that are worth the buy. For instance, they have a darker version of Little Red Riding Hood and a werewolf at the very end. These are a few of the skins, but all of them this season are on point. You can arguably say it’s better than last season.

Cross-platform is available for everyone and it’s possibly the greatest thing to happen yet. Now you can play with your buddies on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and your phone. This is huge for gaming everywhere, and it’s awesome that it came just in time for the new season. That alone is game changing. We only have 9 weeks till the season ends, so make sure to quickly take it at your advantage.
