Gamers will be excited to know that popular battle royale game Fortnite’s Season 6 is now live for everyone. And among the many new things added to the game in this update, there is also a new trap called Chiller. This new trap is a frosty one and tricky as well.

The new trap ‘Chiller’ is a common one and is available with normal loot and it is available in stacks of three. The trap has a unique effect called Icy Feet that reduces friction, effectively making enemies and allies slide on the ground. This trap can be applied to floors as well as walls and ceilings. Players who start sliding can stop themselves by building a wall in front of them.

There are other additions in the Season 6 of Fortnite, and one of the biggest additions this time are pets. Yes, now you can play the game with a tiny companion who will go where you go on the map. A list of available pets hasn’t been mentioned, but the teaser video for the season showcases there to be a dog, a chameleon and a dragon. There’s also not much we know about their abilities yet. It is highly likely that they will not be a part of the combat and will have to be unlocked using Battle Pass.

Fortnite is also introducing a consumable called ‘Shadow Stone’. According to the Patch Notes after consuming the Shadow Stone, players will enter a shadow form that will make them invisible to other players, while not moving. While being in this form however, players will not be able to use any weapons. That said, they can move faster, jump higher and have a better fall damage immunity. They can phase through walls as well. But this item has been removed from the game for the time being because of some reported bugs in the feature.
