How to Activate Reality Augments – Fortnite

Find out how to use the new Reality Augments and what they do in Fortnite Chapter 4.

Fortnite Chapter 4 is upon us and with it comes a variety of new features and gameplay elements. Among the new features are Reality Augments, special perks that offer players unique gameplay benefits during matches. If you’re curious about how to use and activate Reality Augments in Fortnite, you’ve come to the right place.

How to Activate Reality Augments

Reality Augments are in-game perks and benefits that are available to players at certain intervals during matches in Fortnite. While playing a match, players will now be presented with a choice between two random reality augmentations. If you don’t like the Boosts on offer, you can try trading them for something better. The longer you stay in the match, the more Boosts you can get.

Reality Augments are only available until the end of the match, meaning the combination of Augments you have will change each time you play.
