Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3, titled "Wrecked," has arrived with a dieselpunk, Mad Max-inspired island. This season promises more features such as fierce new boss battles, powerful weapons, and extensive vehicle combat which we will get into in just a second..

New Features and Themes

Diesel Punk Island

Firstly, the new island theme reflects a chaotic, post-apocalyptic world. What you can expect to find around the map are more intense battles and a fresh aesthetic that echoes Mad Max vibes. The south-central portion of the map has undergone a complete makeover to match the season's dieselpunk theme.

Battle Pass

The new battle pass as always is offering over 100 rewards, including eight new skins, emotes, a car body for Rocket Racing, and more. It features Epic originals and two collaboration skins, including a teased Fallout crossover.

Vehicle Combat and Modding

Enhanced Vehicle Mods

Vehicle combat has become the star of Chapter 5 Season 3 as you can now equip multiple mods on your vehicles, provided they don't occupy the same slot. The complete list of vehicle mods includes:

  • Machine Gun Turret (roof slot)
  • Grenade Launcher Turret (roof slot)
  • Spiked Bumper (front bumper slot)
  • Cow Catcher (front bumper slot)
  • Bulletproof Tires (tires slot)
  • Chonker's Off-Road Tires (tires slot)

Mods can be acquired from Vehicle Mod Boxes around the map so please make sure you keep an eye on the vechiles health status. You dont want to finally aquire a good setup just for it to be destroyed.  Manage your vehicle's health using Repair Boxes or an unvaulted Repair Torch.

Service Stations and Nitro Barrels

Gas stations are now service stations offering both fuel and health replenishment for vehicles. Nitro Barrels scattered around the island boost speed, ramming power, gas mileage, and mods. Use these barrels on foot for increased stamina, speed, bashing power, faster reloading, and fall damage immunity.

SUV Customization

SUVs can now be cosmetically customized like sports cars. New car bodies, including the Behemoth, are available in the shop at the season's launch.

New Vehicles and NPC Crews

War Bus

The War Bus, a new addition, drops into the map like the floating island from previous seasons. It features an EMP pulse and two cannons, offering a significant advantage in late-game scenarios.

Wasteland Warriors

NPC crews known as Wasteland Warriors will roam the island in modded vehicles. Defeating them yields rewards, including a modded car with infinite Nitro, a Mythic weapon, and a Medallion.
