Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 – Myths & Mortals – is now well under way, with the gods of Olympus and beyond entering the battle royale roster of characters.


After introducing the likes of Solid Snake, Peter Griffin and such in the previous season, Greek mythology is now in charge.

Everyone from Zeus to Hades has taken arms against the island combatants, with plenty of new weapons, limited-time skins, exciting emotes and more rolling out in the latest update.

While Fortnite went through a lengthy server downtime as the new content was patched into the game, it's all now live and kicking. And there's a lot!

The whole map has seen a bit of an overhaul, with lots of legendary locations now scattered. Within these, there are gods and goddesses ready to aid or even, in some cases, take you down in battle.

A new item, the Thunderbolt of Zeus, lets players lift into the air before sending a devastating lighting bolt towards their target. Players will need to defeat Zeus himself to unlock this Mythic Power or find it across the island.

There's also the Wings of Icarus that let you fly across the map, but only for a short period of time, lest your wings burn up.

The Chain of Hades will be added to the game later in the season, but we can see a wee teaser of it on X.

There are new weapons to try out, too:

  • Gatekeeper Shotgun
  • Harbinger SMG
  • Huntress DMR
  • Warforged Assault Rifle

Players can also get some new mods for their weapons:

  • Thermal Scope – Doubles the scope view and features thermal vision

  • Hammer Pump Shotgun
  • Frenzy Auto Shotgun
  • Nemesis AR
