Season 9 of Fortnite Battle Royale kicked off last night, bringing with it plenty of changes and additions like the futuristic new style of Tilted Towers. Players have also begun hunting new Fortbyte collectible microchips, one hundred of them to be released throughout the season. Collecting them reveals some sort of mysterious picture, though the ultimate reward is still unknown. This week brought even more changes to the ever evolving online experience with Update 9.20 including a powerful new item.
This week’s Fortnite update brought with it a new item called the Storm Flip. When thrown, the bottle explodes on impact and creates a new sphere-shaped zone creating a damaging storm area for anyone trapped inside. Interestingly enough, when this is used inside the current storm, it creates a small safe zone for 20 seconds. Players can find a single stack of this epic tier item in places like Floor Loot, Chests, and Vending Machines.
