The world of Fortnite has forever changed. With the introduction of Chapter 4, players are transported across space to a newly-constructed island. That means new mechanics and locations have arrived, along with the Reality Augments that essentially upgrade your character within a match. How does that work exactly? We’ll guide you through the new feature if you’re just jumping onto the space island in Fortnite.
How to Use Reality Augments in Fortnite
Reality Augments in Fortnite provide certain boosts for you the longer you last within a game. They’ll appear through four intervals during a match, with access to potentially four Augments. Once you see them pop up on your screen, equip the Reality Augmentation Device to select one of two available upgrades. Additionally, you can perform a re-roll if you’re not satisfied with your given augments. Activate the boost, and you’ll be closer to victory.
If you manage to reach the final stages of a match, you’ll soon find yourself wielding four individual augments. Of course, they come in different packages, where it all comes down to how you proceed with a match.
All Available Augments
There are 22 Augments that you can discover by playing Fortnite Battle Royale, Zero Build, or through Team Rumble. They come in four categories: Combat, Game Changer, Mobility & Scouting, and Looting. You’ll receive different Augments with the more that you play Fortnite.
Here are the 22 Augments that you can get in Chapter 4 Season 1:

To check your available augments, open the Quests, Map, and Collections menus. There, you’ll find the new one for Augments. It’ll inform you of which ones you have unlocked.
