New Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 storm changes make securing a Victory Royale even more difficult.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 brought the ultimate heist to Epic Games' Battle Royale. Three new POIs contain underground Vaults full of iconic Mythic weapons that all players are dying to get their hands on. Plus, a new Battle Pass offers some of the nicest skins in all of Fortnite Chapter 4.
Amidst the new content, Epic Games snuck in a few storm changes that make endgames feel more intense and fast-paced. Here's a breakdown of all the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 storm changes.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 Storm Changes
The storm begins to move a lot quicker now thanks to Epic Games' Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 storm changes. Despite giving players an extra minute in the first circle to survive off spawn and loot their POIs, the storm will close in much faster as the game goes on.
Once the third circle arrives, the amount of time a player has before the storm begins moving is less than the time in Fortnite WILDS. The new storm changes now allow the storm to start moving after the following times:
- First Circle: 180 seconds
- Second Circle: 90 seconds
- Third Circle: 90 seconds
- Fourth Circle: 60 seconds
- Fifth Circle: 60 seconds
- Sixth Circle: 40 seconds
- Seventh Circle: 25 seconds
- Eighth Circle: 0 seconds
The changes are not very noticeable early game, but if you make it past the fifth circle, you will have to make sure your rotates are on point. It is now easier than ever to get caught up in the storm if you are not actively trying to outrun it.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 Radio Towers Explained
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 also introduced Radio Towers that reveal all future storm circles. The new towers are the perfect way to combat the storm changes and help players get in the best position to win the game.
Once the towers spawn, their icons will appear on the map. Head to the closest one and kill the NPC carrying the Radio Tower keycard. Then, insert the keycard into the tower's computer to reveal the future storm circles.
