It'll take you around 75-100 hours to unlock all of the Season 3 Battle Pass tiers, with time-saving options enabling you to purchase tiers for 150 V-Bucks each.

Season 2 ends today, so we can expect to see the new season starting from anytime tomorrow. The third season of the game is the next big update that's expected, and it will introduce an entirely new way to play it: in space. What's more, there's actually 30 more cosmetic items in the Season 3 Battle Pass as there was in season 2's.

That means Fortnite season 3 is running for 68 days - roughly the same amount of time that Fortnite season 2 has gone on for.

Epic Games took to Reddit to provide a simple teaser with the above image and the caption "SOON!" Each week, seven challenges will unlock, with the added benefit being that they'll stack, so grabbing the Battle Pass halfway through the season will unlock all of the weekly challenges to date.

Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world right now.

Epic is offering a new bundle that includes the Battle Pass and 25 tiers for 2,800 V-Bucks, a 40 percent discount.

With the second season of Fortnite Battle Royale winding down, Epic Games is turning its attention to season three. In Season 3 that will happen on the client side.

However, it's worth noting that most Fortnite updates require the game to go offline for server maintenance. And you can level up even faster by knocking out the in-game daily challenges too.

Once you have bought the Battle Pass you will receive a number of rewards instantly and can then continue to unlock more by progressing through the reward tiers by playing the game. From now on, you can only buy it with the games V-Bucks.

The Pump Shotgun's high damage is balanced by its long reload time, and bypassing that weakness makes the weapon stronger than intended.

Fortnite patch V.3.0.0 will also bring with it the new Spring It On event and will nerf the pump shotgun in a move that will affect close-quarters combat.

"Spring It On" was previously mentioned in a blog post but little else is known about the upcoming event.
