Fortnite Chapter 4 has added a brand new Reality Augments feature that will change the way you play forever!
The fourth chapter of Fortnite is finally here and there is a bunch of new and exciting content added to the Battle Royale game!
One of the new inclusions in Chapter 4 is the introduction of Reality Augments! Here is everything you need to know about this new feature!
What Are Reality Augments in Fortnite?
Reality Augments are perks that will give players special abilities within the game. There are a total of 22 different Reality Augments in Fortnite Chapter 4.
These Augments will make it much easier to get that Victory Royale by providing in-game boosts that you get to choose!
Each Augment will give players a special bonus that lasts for the remainder of the Fortnite match. However, all other players will also receive a random selection of Augments, so watch your back!
How to Activate an Augment in Fortnite
At different intervals in your Fortnite match, you will have the option of selecting one perk from a randomized choice of two! The longer you live, the more perks you collect!
To activate Augments you will need to follow these steps:
- Press the right arrow on the D-Pad to open up the Augment menu. On Keyboard and Mouse, you will need to press 7 to bring the menu up.
- Use L2/LT to navigate between both Augment options. Use the Right Mouse click to navigate on K+M
- Press R2/RT to activate the Augment you wish to select. Use the Left Mouse click to select on K+M
The Augment will be activated as soon as you select it!
If you don’t like the choice of perks you have been given, you can re-roll them at a chance of getting one you want to use!
Re-rolling the Augments for the first time in a game will be free but if you want to re-roll again, it will cost you 100 gold bars!
To re-roll, you need to hold □ on Playstation, X on XBOX and E on PC!
These Augments will not carry over from match to match! You will have to select new Reality Augments in each game you play.

How To Unlock More Augments in Fortnite
