Fortnite reality augments: Full augment list, how to reroll, and more

The new mechanic changing Fortnite's landscape.

Epic Games’ most recent addition to Fortnite completely altered the landscape of the wildly popular battle royale, fundamentally changing the combat with the inclusion of Reality Augments. These are temporary buffs that will appear as a choice to players during a match, with the effects lasting until the player is either eliminated or wins the lobby.

Players are able to stack multiple Reality Augments if they can survive long enough, gradually increasing their strength and ability throughout the course of the game. Though these benefits will expire once the match is over, the longer players last in any given lobby, the more they have the chance to collect.

All Reality Augments in Fortnite

  • Mechanical Archer: Gives players a Mechanical Explosive and Shockwave Bow.
  • Light Fingers: Decreases reload time for Light Ammo weapons.

How to activate Reality Augments in Fortnite

In order to unlock Reality Augments in Fortnite, players will first need to complete the Reality Augment Tutorial, soon after The Oathbound set of quests become unlocked. After this, players can activate Augments in Fortnite as they appear.

To activate an Augment, players will need to wait until a blue text reading ‘Ready!’ appears on the right side of the screen, just below the minimap. Either press right on your controller’s d-pad or 7 on the keyboard to open the menu and select between two randomized Reality Augments.

Players will have the opportunity to stack multiple Augments, as this same blue text will appear at regular intervals over the course of a match.

How to reroll Reality Augments in Fortnite

If you do not like the two Reality Augments you have been presented with in Fortnite, or are simply looking for one specific buff, players have the ability to reroll. Whenever the selection screen appears, players simply must hold the ‘Reroll’ button at the bottom of the screen to open two new randomized Augments to take the spot.

Players should note that while the first reroll of every match is free, each ensuing reroll will cost 100 gold bars afterward.
