fortnite season 6 start date

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 is now nearing its end, but how long does it have left, and when will Season 6 officially launch?

Fortnite divides its content up into Seasons, with Chapters dividing them up further. Once Fortnite reached the end of Season 10 in October 2019, the game moved onto Chapter 2. We’re now nearing the end of Chapter 2, Season 5, so players have set their sights on what Season 6 will have in store.

Fortnite Season 4 ended on December 2 following a massive battle between Fortnite players, Marvel heroes, and Galactus. The game was down for a few hours and then Season 5, titled ‘Zero Point,’ kicked off in style.

A plethora of pop-culture characters have come to the game in Season 5, such as Star Wars’ The Mandalorian, God of War’s Kratos, Xenomorphs, and the Predator. But it’s time to start looking ahead and wonder what we can expect.

When does Fortnite Season 6 begin?

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 will officially end on March 16, 2021 with Season 6 likely to follow directly after it.

Official Fortnite channels have confirmed that the Battle Pass will end on March 16, so it’s safe to assume that Season 6 will begin during the week beginning March 15.

Popular and reliable leaker HYPEX has also revealed that Season 6 won’t be delayed, as the update has been added to the staging servers on March 5.

What will be in Fortnite Season 6?

Fortnite data miners already have an idea of what Season 5’s Zero Crisis Finale Event will look like. In the 15.50 update files, Mang0e discovered NPCs will be “teleported to wacky places by the Zero Point,” and Fort Tory discovered that audio will be distorted as we reach the event.

Continuing the lore of Fortnite, it seems that Agent Jones has finally reached his breaking point and could be about go rogue in Fortnite. The most recent teaser shows clear signs of dissension between himself and the Imagined Order.

It’s likely Season 6 will feature significant map changes. We last saw Colossal Coliseum, Stealthy Stronghold, and the return of fan-favorite location Tilted Towers.

The theme for next season’s content is anyone’s guess, but data miners have become adept at deciphering Epic Games’ plans so we’re likely to have a strong idea before it officially launches.

There is also a plethora of other leaked content including:

Another recent finding indicates that other aspects of Fortnite could be set to merge with the battle royale game. One of the recent teasers has hinted that Save The World content is on its way in the form of a new shotgun and axe.

Neymar coming to Fortnite Season 6?

One of the biggest unofficial surprises for Season 6 of Fortnite appears to be world-famous soccer superstar Neymar.

The Brazilian sports icon is known for his love of Fortnite and responded to an official Tweet from the main Fortnite Twitter handle.

With a bit more digging, evidence has actually been found to support the idea that Neymar is set to feature in Season 6 in some way. In the teaser trailer from Epic Games, some images are included that match up to aspects of Neymar’s career.

Hypex managed to find images relating to Neymar that correspond to suspiciously similar stills inside the video. As we have said, there’s no word on what the mega tie-in could have in-store for players, but maybe it will be the start of an even bigger crossover for the game using real-life athletes.

As soon as we know more about Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6, we’ll be sure to update you.

How to complete Rail Gun Recon Quests in Fortnite

There are 9 different Rail Gun Recon Quests that you can complete in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2, consisting of tasks like dealing damage with the Rail Gun and marking enemies with the Recon Scanner.

Here are all of the Rail Gun Recon Quests in Fortnite:

  • Deal damage from 50 or more meters with the Rail Gun (500)
  • Deal damage to an opponent within 30 seconds of scanning them (500)
  • Deal damage to opponents with the Rail Gun (500)
  • Deal damage to opponents with the Rail Gun (2500)
  • Deal damage to opponents with the Rail Gun (10000)

You can find both the Rail Gun and a Recon Scanner as floor loot or inside Chests. Since these are high-rarity items, we recommend visiting the best Fortnite landing spots if you want to acquire them quickly.

Once you’ve found both of these items, you can use the Rail Gun to damage your opponents by simply firing at them. However, this weapon can take some time to recharge, so be sure to find cover to hide behind.

You can use the Rail Gun to deal damage from 50 meters or more by placing a ping marker on the ground to check how much distance there is between you and your enemy. If the marker shows that you’re too close, you can just step back.

In order to use the Recon Scanner, you’ll need to aim it at the ground before firing. This will mark all nearby enemies, so we recommend doing it in a location with a high number of players during the match.

Be sure to use the Rail Gun to dish out damage within 30 seconds of marking enemies with the Recon Scanner in order to complete one of the objectives. These Quests are easy to complete, and you should be able to get them done in a single match.
