Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 Cubed is finally here. Set in the fallout of the Invasion, the Season’s theme features the return of The Cube. A new season means new weapons and a new map, and that can be overwhelming especially if you’re returning to the game after an absence. Here are six of my best tips and tricks to get you started.

6 Tips you need to know for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8

1- Exploration

This season’s map doesn’t feature as many new locales as other updates, but there will still be some blank spots on your map. These are locations where Alien Abductors have crashed. To unlock these maps sections, you’ll need to get to the crash site at the center.

2- The Sideways

The Sideways is a weird new zone that will take over various POIs. Which locations get Sideways’d will change every match, and will have a frankly disgusting, veinous flesh bubble overtaking the area. Inside, you’ll find Cube Monsters that will drop some powerful new weapons like the Sideways Minigun and Sideways Rifle.

3- Sidegrade Upways

These Cube Monsters also drop Cube Monster Parts, letting you upgrade Sideways weapons. The Sideways Rifle heats up the more you fire, like the normal Minigun. These weapons get stronger the more you fire them, doing their highest damage when close to overheating.
