Fortnite Chapter 3 – Season 4 has brought a lot of new content and players have enjoyed it so far. With the focus on Chrome, Epic Games has released a lot of new items and map changes with the latest season.
Besides gameplay changes, there are also several new mechanics that players can use to their advantage. Unfortunately, a lot of Fortnite players don’t know about all the new things that have come to the game.
This article will reveal some of the best hidden Fortnite features that have come with Season 4. By using these to your advantage, you will be able to dominate your opponents and win games more easily.
Control Fortnite NPCs
Fortnite NPCs used to be useless and were often causing a lot of trouble or confusion. However, the new season has drastically improved them and NPCs are now incredible.
When you hold down your ping button and you have a hired NPC with you, you will be able to use several new commands that the NPC will listen to. For example, you can order the NPC to follow you or to move to a certain location that you assign.
Furthermore, if the NPC offers healing services or items, such as the Med-Mist, you may dismiss them and purchase these items from them.
Here is a video that shows a 200IQ play with an NPC. The video shows a creative way to use NPCs to get easy eliminations and victories in the current season of the game.
Turn regular chests into Chrome Chests
Chrome Chests give Fortnite players EvoChrome weapons and a couple of other items. However, they can only be found in a couple of places on the map, such as Herald’s Sanctum and Lustrous Lagoon
What many players don’t know is that they can use a Chrome Splash to turn regular chests into Chrome Chests! To do this, simply throw a Chrome Splash at a chest and it will get a Chrome theme.
This trick is very useful for everyone who loves picking up the EvoChrome Burst Rifle or Shotgun. These two weapons were buffed on Thursday, September 29, and are even better now.
Get Fortnite Mythic weapons easily
Epic Games has released a couple of new Mythic weapons with Fortnite Chapter 3 – Season 4. Herald’s Burst Rifle is arguably the most amazing weapon in the game, and it can be easily obtained.
To get the Mythic weapon, simply position yourself on the terrace above the Herald and shoot her. She won’t be able to hit you frequently and her wolves will not be able to reach you either. For more info, please check this guide on how to easily eliminate the Herald.
EvoChrome weapons require you to deal damage to enemies with them. The damage requirement was recently lowered, but some players still struggle to evolve them.
Fortunately, it is possible to deal damage to both wildlife and NPCs to evolve these weapons. This trick is very useful and can upgrade your EvoChrome weapon to the Mythic rarity without much effort.
Duplicate Chrome Splashes
Chrome Splash is a new item in Fortnite Battle Royale. The item allows you to transform yourself into a chrome form and even become a blob that is immune to fall damage.
There are many other benefits of this item, such as restoring HP or phasing through walls. However, many players are not aware that the item can be duplicated.
To duplicate a Chrome Splash, simply throw the item at a regular tree. The tree will then become a Chrome tree and will drop Chrome Splashes as you harvest it. You can do this as many times as possible and stack up many items in your inventory.
Run incredibly fast without sprinting
Chrome Splashes give players a lot of benefits and the blob form is amazing. Being immune to fall damage is a huge perk of the blob form, but it’s also important to note that players move incredibly fast in this form.
To become a blob, you simply need to press your sprint button while in the Chrome form. After this, you will move much faster all over the island.
Sprinting is one of the best things Epic Games has added to Fortnite. However, it requires stamina and is limited. Chrome blob, on the other hand, lasts much longer than sprinting and is also much faster.
Break your pet’s heart (or don’t!)
With the release of Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 6, Epic Games has added a lot of new animals to the popular video game. Players were able to interact with wolves, boars, raptors, and other animals.
Chapter 3 has brought a lot of big changes as well. Players can now ride these animals and even pet them. However, Fortnite animals now have emotions and can go through heartbreak!
If you get eliminated while you have a wolf or a boar beside you, your pet’s heart will be broken. This goes the same for other pets who are tamed by enemies. If you eliminate an enemy, you will break their pet’s heart.
Use Fortnite Squad Comms
The first version of Fortnite Squad Comms was released to the game during Chapter 1 – Season 3. This version of the feature stayed in the game for a few years but was finally updated with the latest Fortnite season.
Playing without a microphone has never been easier thanks to Squad Comms! By holding your ping button, you can now notify your teammates that you’ve heard footsteps or give the command to attack.
Using Fortnite Squad Comms is similar to giving orders to NPCs, so try it out in your next match.
