The complete patch notes for the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 update have yet to be released, but we can take an educated guess at what to expect.
Beyond various new map changes and some new items of interest, you’ll find some weapon damage and stat changes to switch up the meta a little.
The full patch notes will be released shortly before Season 6 is live, on the morning on March 16, and we’ll have them for you here the moment we can.
Season 6 Release Date
Chapter 2 Season 6 will begin on Tuesday, March 16, following the conclusion of the Season 5 event.
It will probably be live at about 4am ET/9am GMT on that day, with you being able to jump into the new content shortly after some downtime.
Get the update downloaded on whatever system you’re playing Fortnite on and you’ll then be able to see how the info in the Patch Notes has been enacted in-game.
Theme & Event
The theme of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 Season 6 has yet to be revealed, which is unusual for being this close to the start.
The Season 5 event seems to be involving Zero Point, which is starting to explode and pulse every few minutes.
We expect it to explode and significantly affect the Fortnite map, maybe changing it completely for Season 6.
The event has been confirmed to be playable solo, with you being able to jump in anytime you like following its debut and as Season 6 starts.
The Patch Notes will also feature all the information on the new weapons coming in Season 6.
Since Epic are staying unusually quiet about what’s coming following the Season 5 event, we don’t know what new weapons we’re going to see.
As more is revealed about Fortnite’s Chapter 2 Season 6 and the patch notes are released, we’ll be sure to update this piece.
