"Worlds collide in Season 5!" the official Fortnite Twitter page tweeted.

Here's what the area looks like when you get there.

You'll be able to quickly get between these and other existing locations in the new All Terrain Kart, Fortnite's first vehicle capable of carrying a squad.

The Lightning Bolts are always located in the same areas, and there are more than seven scattered around the island, so it should be easy enough to complete the challenge once you know where to find them.

Map updates include a new desert biome complete with race track and two new locations: Paradise Palms and Lazy Links. While the list of changes is fairly extensive, one notable addition to the Switch version is gyroscope aiming. Also, after firing a shotgun, you won't be able to use a different shotgun for a short amount of time, presumably to avoid players weapon switching to fire off shotguns faster than they were created to be shot. The vehicle can fit an entire four person squad inside, drifting grants speed boosts, the roof is a bounce pad, and non-driving passengers can work together to make the vehicle leap by pulling back on the control stick and releasing in unison.

Cruise ship worker who fell overboard rescued almost a day later
He was rescued by the Carnival Glory cruise ship, which is operated by the Carnival Cruise Line . As far as how the crew member went overboard, that remains under investigation.


Like other challenges that task you with tracking down certain items, the Lightning Bolts can be found in various parts of the island. Look at our map above to narrow down your starting location and glide on over there. Well, season 5's new battle pass has you covered.

Known as the "Blockbuster" in Season 4, Epic Games implemented a set of challenges which could only be unlocked over multiple weeks after players completed various tasks across the Season.

Auto-fire has also been added as an option in the iOS game - you can toggle it on and off in the settings menu.

This one's nothing major, but you will now be able to earn XP 'for reviving teammates in 50v50 and Teams of 20 LTMs up to three times per match (30XP, 10XP, 10XP)'.
