Vaults will feature Mod Benches, which have mods available for many weapons in exchange for Bars. You can add mods to your weapons that reduce recoil, increase mag capacity, and more - just know that not every mod works with every weapon.

With the new season comes the Big Bang Battle Pass, full of new cosmetics.

The Outfits are Underground underdogs and The Society’s crooked. You’ll auto-unlock Hope, who is part of The Underground. When you progress through the Battle Pass you will unlock more outfits. These are Oscar, Vengeance Jones, Nisha, Montague, Peter Griffin, and Valeria.

Looking over the video, it appears a new dance emote will be available, because, you know, the bird is the word and all that.

Fornite Chapter 5: Season One launches on Sunday, December 3.
