Fortnite introduces rival spy factions in the Top Secret second season

Fortnite introduces rival spy factions in the Top Secret second season

Well, that whole ARG thing about agencies turned out to be an allusion to more than one secret spy network. Fortnite has officially kicked off its second season with a whole spy vs. spy motif and called it Top Secret, bringing a variety of thematic changes to the battle royale map, the Battle Pass, and to the game itself.

Sections of the map are now bases for the Ghost and Shadow agencies, which feature NPC enemies, turrets, and security cameras. Players can choose to infiltrate these bases if they wish, face off against a base’s leader, and earn powerful rewards for doing so. According to the official site, hideouts have secret passages that can get players inside, and new items like decoy grenades, proximity mines, and disguises are included with this new season. Kotaku also reports that shaking down enemy henchmen can grant special temporary abilities like the ability to see where chests and other NPC enemies are located, or even a keycard to open a vault full of rewards.

The spy games motif has also been enfolded into the Battle Pass, which unlocks a Hideout and lets players choose an agent, complete weekly battle pass challenges, and take on faction-specific missions for Ghost or Shadow that lead to additional unique cosmetics. However, choosing one faction over the other is permanent. This hideout Battle Pass screen also has a vent that leads to the superhero Deadpool and some additional weekly challenges, which could lead to a Deadpool skin as well.

There are no patch notes at the time of this writing, but there are unique web pages for both this new season and the new battle pass, as well as trailers for both that we’ve embedded below.

I looked at this today, thanks to this article of yours, Chris, and the content seems both fun and well-made.

Unfortunately, in order to unlock the super-spy themed gameplay and cosmetics that the latest Battle Pass offers, you’re still required to do “daily” type things out in the Battle Royale “last person standing” mass-group PvP.

For example, in order to unlock additional hairstyle options for the customizeable agent character Maya, you have to do 250 points of damage with automatic rifles during a Battle Royale PvP match.

The “Save The World” co-op PvE version of the game has none of the super-spy shenanigans in effect as I type this, although it has premiered a belated St. Valentine’s Day questline which seems pretty amusing.

I’ve been waiting for a solid super-spy type MMORPG ever since Sony-that-was announced, then mutated, then cancelled, The Agency.

Even with Fortnite dabbling in the world of James Bond, Jason Bourne, and all the rest, we’re still not any closer to seeing that kind of MMORPG game come to pass, alas.

those missions are easy, like you can finish all the challenges in one day, you dont really need to login every day to unlock skins you can do it in your own time (in the season)

you get the skins by leveling and in fortnite its pretty fast cuz its the same exp per level.

you need to do missions to unlock the extra skins per character but as i said its a matter of few games.
*ofc if someone dont like PvP there is no reason for them to play BR.

and i like STW but they really need to reboot the game and work on it from the start… im waiting for the f2p to bring more players into the game.

one last thing:
what about “Rogue Company” from HiRez?
also going to be pvp but look like a little map and better then BR
