There has been no shortage of excitement throughout Chapter 3 of Fortnite as Epic Games continue to evolve the ultra-popular battle royale. Game developers seem to be heeding the calls of their long-time player base, with content from former Chapters being unvaulted and dropped back into the Fortnite island.

In perhaps the biggest Fortnite development of the year thus far, Tilted Towers returned to the map allowing players to relive the original Season 1 location. Epic has also unvaulted classic weapons like the Heavy Shotgun, keeping the loot pool interesting.

We're now set for the next drop as some long-range weapons from Chapter 2 are making a return. Here's everything you need to know about Fortnite Bownanza Week, live now as part of the Feb 22 v19.30 Hotfix.
