What is probably the last update for Season 5 will be released on November 23rd and will bring a final wave full of items and weapons that you can use on the new map. The following were presented:
OG Battle Pass and Shop
Fotnite is launching a new, but shorter Battle Pass with Season 5. You will now receive 4 skins, items and 1000 V-Bucks from the OG Battle Pass for 950 V-Bucks. Epic is also offering a new OG shop in which old items from the past that are extremely rare are available for purchase. It is not known what items these are, apart from one skin.
Ranked is adjusted
The ranked mode will be adjusted with the OG season. Mid- to high-level players should rank up more quickly thanks to the short nature of Season 5. In addition, rounds with 80 players should be able to start if no other players can be found in the match search. This is intended to make matches fairer for players with higher ranks.
If you also complete one of the material contracts in a ranked match, you will also receive the exclusive back accessory Rank Tags.
Rewards in cups
Chapter 4 Season 5 will feature exclusive cups where you can earn two temporary items for your locker.
The items include:
A free reward for everyone
Once you log in to Chapter 4 Season 5, you will receive a free lobby music “The RE-OG” by Metro Boomin. When you log in, you will find the item in your locker.
