Fortnite Chapter 4 added a new Reality Augments feature that will change how you play forever!

The second season of 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 Season 2 is introducing brand-new Reality Augments! Here is everything you need to know about the new perks.

What Are Reality Augments in Fortnite?

Reality Augments are perks that will give players special bonus abilities within the game. Each Augment special bonus lasts for the remainder of the Fortnite match.

There are a total of 16 different Reality Augments in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2, including seven new ones.

In general, these Augments will make it much easier to get that Victory Royale by providing in-game boosts that you can choose!

It is worth noting 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 can select 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 the Keyboard and Mouse, you must 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!

Reality Augment Steps

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 must 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

You will unlock more Reality Augments simply by playing Battle Royale, Zero Build, or Team Rumble. The more you play, the more Augments you will unlock!
