Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4: Paradise is now live, heralding the appearance of Chrome across the Battle Royale Island. Chrome structures, Chrome characters, and Chrome weapons are among the Chrome additions, as is a ‘Chrome Splash’, which turns walls into penetrable zones that can be traversed, to you can flank opponents.
Throwing down a Chrome Splash will turn your character Chrome, making you immune to fire damage, and transforming you into a T-1000-esque Blob when you sprint. As a sprinting Blob, you'll move faster, be immune to fall damage, and gain an air dash. When air dashing, you can phase through any building, ‘Chrome-ifying’ it in the process.
As well as taking over points of interest, the Chrome has also brought about the new Herald's Sanctum, near the abandoned Sanctuary, as well as Cloudy Condos near Condo Canyon. To scale their heights, you can use a D-Launcher to reach higher ground. As for weapons, there's the EvoChrome Shotgun and EvoChrome Burst Rifle, found in Chrome Chests.
A host of ‘pre-Chrome’ weapons are also being unvaulted, including the Sidearm Pistol, Prime Shotgun, Lever Action Shotgun, Rapid Fire SMG, Suppressed Submachine Gun, Ranger Assault Rifle, Hammer Assault Rifle, Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR), Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper, Grenade, Firefly Jar, Harpoon Gun, Shadow Tracker (Exotic weapon), The Dub (Exotic weapon), Boom Sniper Rifle (Exotic weapon), Boogie Bomb, and Shockwave Grenade (the latter two are not technically weapons, but unvaulted nonetheless).
Sniper weapons have also been buffed, and there's a new slide kick you can use to knock players back. Fortnite Battle Royale Chapter 3 Season 4: Paradise is now available, with a new Battle Pass including unlockable characters Bytes, Grriz, Meow Skulls, Lennox Rose, Twy, and Spider-Gwen.
