Building Replaced By Overshield In Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2
Yes, you read that right, one of the main aspects and a key differentiator of Fortnite from other games, building, has been removed. Reports suggest that this change is likely to be temporary as the key feature may have a comeback in future updates. Replacing building as a means of shielding from an enemy’s attack will be overshield.
Overshield will be your first line of defense that will deplete before your actual shield and health bar takes a hit from the opponents’ firing. However, the overshield will replenish after a while, just like the shields do in the Halo series.

This season, Fortnite will see one of the much-needed movement upgrades, mantling being added to the game. The feature allows players to jump onto buildings and hold onto the ledge and pull themselves up with their hands. This is crucial when you are trying to jump onto buildings or elevations which are either too high or too far for you to land on your feet. Surprised to see it being added to the game so late but this will surely make the game exciting.
Another addition to movements is sprinting. The default movement speed will be faster than it was before. A new sprint meter will tell players how much longer they can sprint. The faster movement will make it challenging for opponents to hunt you down and will also give you an edge for sneaky melee attacks.
Well if you are really in a hurry you can club the faster sprinting with shoulder bashing through doors to open them quicker. Players can also slide in to open the doors in the new update for Fortnite.
Bars To Vote
Players can vote on whether or not a device in-game should be unvaulted. The most talked-about device is the turret. Players will be able to vote to install of either a light turret or a heavy turret to blast vehicles with the latter one being difficult to use but dealing a lot of damage.
The two new weapons being added this season are the combat SMG and the striker burst rifle.

The combat SMG, much like the combat pistol and combat rifle, can deal heavy damage to opponents but to get the most out of it, a player will have to get the gun’s recoil under control.
The Striker Burst Rifle is a two-shot semi-automatic rifle that has a customized scope. The likes of Drum Shotgun, Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle and Remote Explosives have been unvaulted from the game while sidearm pistol, stinger SMG, Marksman Six Shooter and more from season 1 will be returning for season 2.
The Repair Torch
The repair torch is here to help players fix their vehicles that have dealt damage to shots or explosives. The repair torch can be refueled at gas pumps and are an excellent addition to enhance the gameplay experience.
