A Brand-New Battlefield: The Wasteland

Once Fortnite world had luscious island with a lot of greenery but recently it went under a drastic transformation. A furious sandstorm has taken over the island and created a new sandy biome known as the Wasteland.

The desert Wasteland is dotted with a rocky mess and remnants of a great civilization known as the Wasteland Warriors. They are famous for riding in with the sandstorms. The leader of the Wasteland Warrior is known as Megalo Don who resides at the Brutal Beachhead. The Brutal Beachhead is also the base for operations for the warriors.

Apart from these the map also has new features such as:

  1. Condo Canyon: An old hotel standing on its last legs as it lost luxury, offering players with a lot of verticality for combat encounters.
  2. The Colossal Coliseum: As the name no doubt it’s a gladiator pit, designed for close quarter combat.
  3. Greasy Grove: The fan favorite Greasy grove’s burger joint has been partially buried in the sand, the dispensaries now offering explosive consumables for the brave players landing there.
  4. Shifty Shafts: The mines are now partially unearthed with new caves to discover and find rare loot.

These features will increase your ramming power so you can cause the ultimate chaos.

You can also mod your SUVs now in Fortnite. There will be certain parts that will be compatible with both sports’ car and SUVs. You can also select car bodies from the Rocket League game. There is a Behemoth bundle in the shop which focuses on the Wastelander Set.

“Each War Bus comes rigged with two cannons on top and a horn that produces an EMP pulse. (EMP does damage to nearby enemy Shields, and temporarily disables surrounding vehicles.) These monster mobiles hold multiple EMP pulses that each recharge after a short time!”

Also don’t forget to use the Boom Bolt that will literally cause traffic by explosion. Boom Bolt is a moddable crossbow that can shoot explosive bolts. Of course, to repair your car from any damage you can use the Repair Box and Repair Torch.  You can also go to Service Stations to replace gas pumps and refill your car gas.
