Fortnite Season 6 Launches With Halloween Theme, Pets, Invisibility, More

Calamity is a progressive skin, which means that you'll be able to unlock new components to it as you play through the season. So, what's new in the Battle Pass for season 6?

You can find this week's Battle Star at the small ranch that's to the right of Paradise Palms. Shadow Form also grants increased movement speed, jump height and immunity to fall damage, as well as the ability to "Phase" through objects in any direction using the primary fire button.

According to the Fortnite Trello board, Epic Games is working on eliminating server and client hitches on Xbox One and PC.


Cosmetically speaking, there are of course a ton of new player skins and outfits to unlock, but in addition, you'll notice there are now pets in the game.

With a new Battle Pass also comes a plethora of challenges for players to complete and a secret Battle Star to locate.

Other quality of life updates now allows players can also now customize their controller bindings through the game settings. For a start, a bunch of weapons and items have been removed.


Fortnite's Halloween-themed update introduces a new item called Shadow Stones. These pets look incredibly cute, much like you would expect things to work on Fortnite, and they even react to different conditions, like when you are in a fight. I, for the first time in my life, purchased the battle pass in order to get the dog you see at the top of the post. Uncover what's in the new Battle Pass, explore an updated island with Pets, and become one with the shadows with a new consumable.

With Season 6, the wait times in between each shrinkage have all been reduced, some by quite a lot. When you're ready, you can download the season six update across all platforms and get stuck into the action!
