Chapter 2 Updates: Reason I Loved It Like Anything Hell
Players loved the chapter 2 updates so much that they have been already waiting like a hawk for the season 2 announcement. But what made the Fortnite episode 2, so much favored?
The answer isn’t a simple one. Lets’ take a few moments to find out the reason behind such mind-boggling success of the Fortnite game-changer chapter 2, season 1.
The Watery Map: A Brand-New Edition
Ask any Fortnitean, and they will admittedly praise the new Chapter 2 Fortnite map. Such is the power of recent upgradations. There’s no hiding that the water will be in the central focus of the game this time.
You will have the option to swim, fish, and to ride on a beautiful motorboat. The fishing offers you the opportunity to get items, weapons, and ammo. However, you must first find the location of the fishing pole.

The fishing rod will allow you to get some serious loots and a chance to upgrade your Battle Pass coins from the season 1. I loved the magical healing fish, and the tier weapons form the Epic games. The soulful background adds soothing experience for your eyes.
However, the stunning map isn’t a new one. Honestly speaking, it is a mere continuation of the map from the Save the World mode. It uses several old landmarks from the original Fortnite battleground.
Some of the significant battlefields are- Retail Row, Salty Springs, and Pleasant Park. Fair enough, Epic Games have made some adjustments to the older layout. Hence, I must say that the map isn’t a notable change; likewise, the maps of Call of Duty: Black Cops.
Be Aware Not to Get Entangled by The Water
All have helmed the watery map. However, it comes with a small price. The lakes, small creeks, rivers, and beaches are interconnected with each other. Thus, it is a little difficult for you to avoid them in certain situations.
If you are planning to flee away from the enemy squad or the approaching zone, your positional sense will have been on the point so that you don’t come across the water bodies.
Once you get entangled in such a watery place, you will become an easy shot target for the enemy. So, be aware.

However, if you don’t like swimming or gliding, Fortnite 2 provides you the brand-new motorboat.
The Updated Battle Pass
Fortnite Chapter 2 Battle Pass has also undergone some severe changes. There is now the chance of levelling up.
Nevertheless, the regular battle pass costs likewise the previous Chapter 1, meaning you can buy 950 V-bucks for roughly 10$. The 100-tier that comes as a reward with the V-bucks will offer you-
- Cosmetic skins
- Back bling
- Loading screens
Additionally, you may get a lot more, but for that, you need to play and advance deep into the game. However, if you want a head start, we recommend you to buy the first 25 levels. It will roughly cost you 30$ for 2800 V-bucks.
Although Chapter 2 is a refreshment form the 1st chapter, the problems more or less remain the same. Yet, they are never too old and boring. You will get new challenges on each Thursday to complete them and level up your gameplay.
Some of the most remarkable challenges are-
- Chaos Rising challenges: We have strong rumours that this is the last challenge for Chapter 2 Season 1. However, it will continue for February 2020.
- Motorboat time trial: It offers you four different locations to start the competition. You will need to touch all the checkpoints to accomplish the challenge.
- Skydive in Steamy Stacks: During this challenge, you will have to perform a skydive from the Battle Bus and pass through a ring. That’s all. However, in case you fail, there’s a second chance where you will need to pile up items to reach the ring.

Apart from these significant challenges, there are some minor ones also.
- Dancing in the Steel Bridges
- Finding the seven ammo boxes
- Dealing damage from opponents of below 250.
- Searching five chests.

Chapter 2 was released on October 15th, yet, the patch notes weren’t published instantly. Gamers went through many rumours and anxiety only to see a minor patch revelation on October 22.
