Last season’s bounty hunting theme was pretty wild, but Epic Games added even more madness to Fortnite for Season 6. More than a few of the previous season’s mechanics like gold bars, bounty hunting, and NPC vendors are still in the game. Yet now we can encounter and tame animals and even craft weapons with specific stats. The island itself has received plenty of changes as well, with new points of interest, remixes of a few other popular past locations, and some strange new spire towers that can propel players across the map. Epic Games calls Fortnite Season 6 a Primal affair for good reason, and our compiled guides and content features list will help you navigate all of the new things there are to do and see this time around.
If it’s been a minute since you last played Fortnite, we recommend you start off by reading through the Zero Point Crisis Finale event recap so you can get a good idea of what last happened. You’ll also get a quick preview of all the major changes implemented in Fortnite for Season 6 Primal. Once done, you can jump into our articles covering various features and the weekly challenges.
