Here’s everything you need to know about Reality Augments in Fortnite. Get ahead of your enemies with a selection of upgrades!
Fortnite Chapter 4 has arrived. Epic has spoiled us with all kinds of new weapons, a fresh map, plus a bunch of original mechanics and gameplay changes.
One of the biggest additions however is Reality Augments. They introduce a new tactical element to your Battle Royale gameplan. Let’s take a look:
What are Reality Augments?
Reality Augments are essentially Fortnite’s take on a perk system. Each one will give you a special skill, weapon, or boost to get the upper hand on the competition.
At various points during a match, you’ll be given a randomized choice of two Reality Augments – you can also reroll if you don’t like your options. As the game goes on, you’ll stack more Reality Augments and gain more powers.
