On closer inspection, this is the small erm, the umbrella/Minecraft axe shaped thing you'll spot on the map just west of Lazy Links (a new Season 5 location in the north).

Fortnite is now offline on all platforms while it's getting patched and updated ready to support Season 5.

V5 introduces a new vehicle option called the ATK, or All Terrain Kart.

Viking ships, desert outposts, and ancient statues can be found all over the Battle Royale map, which you can now navigate in the new All Terrain Kart. We won't know the full extent of cosmetic changes to the map and exactly what the new season's theme is until the servers come back online. If you had the Season 4 Battle Pass you'll get some free levels on this one to kick start your progress, but there's also a change this time to how challenges are handled. The ATK also features a speed boost after drifting, the roof acting as a bounce pad and passengers in the back being able to help the driver leap over vehicles by leaning back and releasing. If you've found anymore that aren't listed in the image above, feel free to drop us a tip in the comment section so we can make sure to add it to this list! These will take you "for a wild ride" if you dare step in, so maybe they'll act as some kind of teleportation portal. Epic is also changing the way progressive challenges work - your progress toward completing these now carries over between seasons. The heavy shotgun now fires 10 pellets instead of 5, but the maximum damage of the weapon has been unchanged. You can read about all of these and more over on Epic's site. While the list of changes is fairly extensive, one notable addition to the Switch version is gyroscope aiming.
