Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass gets more tiers!
Epic Games has laid out the plans it has for Fortnite Season 3’s Battle Pass earlier today, and yep, the game has a lot of juice left to be squeezed.
Not familiar with the Battle Pass? It’s Fortnite’s premium loot (read: paid) that lets members buy tiers (or earn them) to unlock more stuff. For the Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass, players will instantly unlock a bunch of in-game rewards which include the new Mission Specialist outfit, and as you play during the season, expect tiered rewards to be doled out. The more you play, the more you unlock stuff.
According to Epic, in the Fornite Season 3 Battle Pass, there are now more 30 more tiers (100 in total), and that means, more loot! Check out the comparison chart below.

|Skydiving FX Trails||0||5|
Epic states that even if the studio added more tiers, players will be able to complete the Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass in the same amount of time as Season 2’s. Check out the rest of the stuff set to come below, along with a quick FAQ from Epic.
NEW BATTLE BUNDLE
Battle Pass + 25 Tiers (2800 V-Bucks)
Includes access to the Battle Pass and instantly unlocks your next 25 tiers, all at a 40% discount.
Play at your own pace!
Tier up even faster by completing the new Weekly Challenges. Each week a new set of seven challenges unlock, replacing the Season 2 Battle Pass daily challenges. Weekly Challenges stack and can be completed any time before the season ends, so if you buy a pass mid-season you’ll still have access to all of the previous Weekly Challenges. You can complete four out of the seven Weekly Challenges to unlock your rewards, so choose the challenges that best fit your style!
If I purchase the Battle Pass Season 2 do I get the Battle Pass Season 3?
- No, but you keep all of the rewards you’ve earned from the Season 2 Battle Pass!
How do I buy the Battle Pass?
- Launch Fortnite
- Select Battle Royale
- Navigate to the Battle Pass Tab
- Purchase either the Battle Pass or the Battle Bundle
What if I buy the Battle Pass late in the season?
- You will receive all of the rewards up to your current level, retroactively!
I want to get everything right away. Since there are more levels in Season 3, isn’t it going to cost more to buy my way to the end?
- Yes, it does. For the first 70 tiers you’ll receive 70 items, just like last season. The added 30 tiers in Season 3 offer more loot than before. We have designed the boosts and challenges so you can complete the 100 tiers of the Season 3 in the same time that it took you to complete the 70 tiers of Season 2.
In other Fortnite news, don’t forget a massive patch dropped just last week, and you can see the changes made and additions here. There’s also free skins for PS4 players, though PC players can access it via a workaround, too.
