Season 5 of Fortnite Chapter 2 is here: Zero Point adds Baby Yoda, the Mandalorian


How It Works Fortnite one-time Galactus? With something bigger: Baby Yoda. Err, Grogu. FortniteThe fifth season (second chapter) kicked off on Wednesday with a new arc called Zero Point that brings new heroes into the game after last season’s big Marvel-themed event.

The reality at Zero Point Fortniteits island brings all sorts of strange, brand new diverse areas to the mainland. And the characters feel similarly weird. They range from an ancient gladiator through a winged gorgon to a cel-shaded anime fighting angel. Of course, there’s The Mandalorian, the vile Grogu, and a cowboy pile of pancakes called Mancake the Fighting Flapjack.

Players can help the island’s new characters with missions and rewards and hire them for their allies. Aggressive players can invite new characters to duel for a reward. New payouts require bars that players can earn by “completing quests and rewards, losing players, or finding hidden places hidden around the island”. These bars can also buy you “new exotic weapons, upgrades, intelligence, services and more”.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5, also brings with it new weapons and items, including the Dragon Breath Shotgun, the Night Hawk following players, and Din Djarin Amban’s sniper rifle and jetpack.

Epic Games thought that Agent Jones, at the center of the Zero Point arc, as seen in the trailer above, “would bring in more hunters from the afterlife.” With Fortnite characters torn from the Marvel, DC, and Star Wars universes, what could be next?
