Fortnite Season 2 DELAYED!!: What to Expect from the New Season

Fortnite Season 2

New Mythic Items and Medallions

The new Fortnite season has been highly anticipated by players all around the world. However, there has been a delay in its release, causing disappointment among fans. The delay was initially expected to be a few hours, but now it has been extended to at least eight additional hours. This is the longest delay we have ever seen for a Fortnite update or season launch.

While the exact issue causing the delay has not been specified, we do have some information about what to expect from the new season. One of the most exciting additions is the introduction of new Mythic items. There are four new bosses, each with their own unique Mythic item. One of the standout items is a new Mythic shotgun that packs a punch with its increased fire rate and damage output. This shotgun will definitely be a force to be reckoned with in the game.

In addition to the new Mythic items, there are also four new medallions. These medallions work differently in this season compared to previous ones. One medallion grants siphon, another allows you to perform a shadow jump, and another gives you a super jump. The final medallion increases damage on ranged weapons. However, it’s important to note that the medallions no longer provide passive shield, so players will need to rely on eliminations for siphon.

Map Changes and Biomes

The new Fortnite season also brings significant changes to the map. There are two new biomes, one in the Northwest and one in the Southeast. The Northwest biome is where Hades resides in the underworld, while the Southeast biome features Olympus. Each biome has two points of interest (POIs), and one of the existing POIs, Ruined Reels, has been transformed into Rebuilt Reels. These changes to the map make for a refreshing gameplay experience and add more variety to the game.

An Engaging Storyline

In addition to the gameplay updates, the new Fortnite season introduces an engaging storyline that revolves around the return of Midas and his crew. Midas, who previously disappeared or died, is now back and plays a significant role in the story. He is joined by other familiar faces from Chapter 2 Season 2, including Meowscles, Brutus, and Tantina. The bosses from that season will appear as NPCs with dialogue, hinting at their involvement in a bigger plot.

The storyline focuses on the conflict between Zeus and the mortal characters. Zeus is portrayed as a villain who wants to unleash his wrath upon humanity, while some of the other gods and demi-gods try to stop him. This season promises to provide players with a deeper understanding of the Fortnite universe and may even lead to a live event at the end of the season.

New Weapons and LTMs

Alongside the compelling storyline, players can look forward to new weapons in the game. There will be a new SMG, assault rifle, and a brand new DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle). The DMR, in particular, offers high damage output and may finally find a place in the meta due to the absence of hitscan weapons in the game. Additionally, there are rumors of the return of the Mythic Drum Gun and the introduction of the Gatekeeper Shotgun, which boasts a fast fire rate and significant damage.

Fortnite players can also anticipate the reintroduction of limited-time modes (LTMs). The popular “Floor is Lava” LTM will make a comeback, but this time, the lava will be replaced with gold to tie in with the return of Midas to the story and game. These LTMs provide a fun and unique twist to the gameplay experience and have been greatly missed by the community.


Despite the unfortunate delay, the new Fortnite season holds great promise. With new Mythic items, medallions, map changes, an engaging storyline, and exciting new weapons and LTMs, players have a lot to look forward to. It’s clear that Epic Games has put a lot of effort into creating an immersive and captivating experience for Fortnite enthusiasts. So, while the wait may be frustrating, it will undoubtedly be worth it once the season finally launches.

Be sure to stay subscribed for updates and check out the new season on your own. Happy gaming!
