Fortnite Chapter 4: Season OG Brings Nostalgic Vibes to the Game
Fortnite Chapter 4: Season OG is set to go live after a short downtime, and players are in for a treat. This season takes us back to the memorable Chapter 1 map from 2018, featuring throwback weapons, loot, vehicles, and more. While it’s technically Season 5 of Fortnite Chapter 4, developer Epic Games is calling it Season OG to emphasize the nostalgia factor. The developers have gone all out to recreate the magic of Fortnite 2018, with each new update reintroducing a different phase of Fortnite Chapter 1’s past beginning with Season 5. The Zero Build and regular Battle Royale modes will both feature iconic weapons like the Assault Rifle and Pump Shotgun, as well as vehicles like Shopping Carts.

Season 5: The Return of Tilted, Greasy, and Risky
Tilted Towers, a beloved point of interest from Chapter 1: Season 2, will make its comeback and remain until the Season 9 update of Season OG. Alongside Tilted Towers, Epic is bringing back All Terrain Karts, other vehicles, and traps from the original Season 5.

Players will experience faster rank progression at higher and middle ranks, and progression for players in the Bronze ranks has been hastened to ensure constant progression for players who queue up with friends across different ranks.
Ranked Urgent Quests are introduced in this season, and completing specific amounts of these quests will unlock special in-game rewards. Completing just one Ranked Urgent Quest during Fortnite Chapter 4: Season OG will reward players with the Chapter 1-inspired Ranker’s Tags Back Bling, which displays the color of their highest rank reached for the season.
