You may want to know the new Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 Augments, as a series of new ones have been added, with prior ones removed for the latest season. Fortnite has excelled as one of the biggest games on the planet for so long due to Epic's dedication to refreshing the content, with Chapter 4 adding more than ever. So, if you need to know the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 Augments, we've got you covered. 

What Are Augments In Fortnite Chapter 4?

If you’ve played other online shooters, you may be used to gaining perks and upgrades for your character. It’s a common feature and one that Fortnite hasn’t really adopted up until this point. However, with Augments, that all changes in Fortnite Chapter 4.

Augments allow you to equip a buff or perks to your character at regular intervals throughout the map. You’ll be presented with two and be forced to pick one or the other. If you’re not happy, you’re allowed one free re-roll to try for another two perks. These will last the entirety of your Fortnite game and perhaps give you an edge in victory.

How To Use Augments In Fortnite Chapter 4

To use Augments is really simple. At certain times of the match, normally after a key event such as the storm coming in, you’ll notice an icon on the right-hand side of the screen. This is accompanied by a button prompt, such as right on the d-pad for controller users. Press this, and you’ll be presented with the Augments screen.

Here, you must make a choice out of two possible Augments. You can re-roll for free once per match, but any further re-rolls will set you back some gold bars. Once you’ve made your choice, the Augment will last until the end of the Fortnite match. 

You’ll have multiple opportunities to equip Augments throughout the match, so be sure to keep an eye on the screen and use the feature as soon as it charges up and becomes available to use.
