See what this season's Battle Pass has to offer.
It took a while to get here, but Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 3 is finally here. Epic Games delayed the season for around two months due to issues beyond their control but seemingly delivered a polished product. The map changes are innovative as are the new gameplay elements. However, one of the biggest questions the community asks when a new season is released is about the Battle Pass. Did Epic Games deliver on this front as well, or did the developer flop when it comes to the cosmetic side of Fortnite?
The Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 3 Battle Pass
As always, there are 100 tiers in the Season 3 Battle Pass. You can either earn various free rewards along the way or pay $10 for 950 V-Bucks and unlock the Premium pass. Most fans choose the latter, as a majority already have V-Bucks saved up Season 2’s Battle Pass.
However, if you’re teetering on whether or not to purchase the pass, let’s dive in and see what it has to offer. To start, you’re given two skins at tier 1 once you buy the Premium version. The two skins are Ocean and Fade, which can be upgraded the more XP you earn.
Both of these skins look fairly decent in their first stage. Of course, the more you upgrade them, the better they will look. Though, the Battle Pass still starts off strong with Ocean and Fade and only improves from there. At tier 10, you unlock the Tide Axes Harvesting Tool, and at tier 20 you unlock Scuba Jonesey, which is arguably the coolest skin on the pass.
The next tier of interest is 30, which contains the Eon Blades Harvesting Tool. These two pickaxes look incredible, taking on a scythe-type look. Something to note with the pickaxes in this Battle Pass, you can either wield them as dual-axes or the traditional two-handed style. While not a huge feature, it does give players the ability to further customize their loadout.
The remainder of the Battle Pass is fairly standard, with nothing truly standing out. Though, there are some nice skins and gliders in the middle of the pass. Moving along to tiers 90-100, this is where the Battle Pass truly shines. In this section, there’s the Revenant Harvesting Tool, Blade Raven Glider, Eternal Shield backbling, and two legendary skins.
Both at tier 100, we have the Eternal Knight and Masked, which is the final version of tier 1’s Fade. Each of these outfits looks outstanding and makes the Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass worth it altogether.
All in all, this Battle Pass features a ton of variety and seems to be going for a futuristic vibe along with the season’s aquatic theme. If you were a fan of most previous Fortnite Battle Passes, then you’re most likely going to live Season 3’s instalment.
