Fortnite Update Patch Notes Jan 11 2022
In one of the videos for Fortnite chapter 3 season 1, we could see different weather effects including lightning and tornadoes. They weren’t available at the start of the season, but with today’s Fortnite update, they are now available as of January 11th. 2022.
Tornadoes and Lightning Fortnite Weather Feature
Unlike in other games, if you see a tornado start to form, you would run as far away from it as possible. In Fortnite howver, it’s bes tto run to it and use the tornado as an escape or rotation strategy.
You’ll spin around until you choose to glide away to safety, if you stay on the Fortnite tornado long enough, it will spit you, but you won’t receive any fall damage when getting hurled to the ground.
If you see a dark cloud start to form, it’s also not necessary to flee. Lightning in Fortnite will deal a small amount of damage to anything it strikes along with surrounding the area with file, but the power of the lightning shock in Fortnite will give players a speed boost for a short period of time.

If you want to increase your chances of getting struck by lightning, jump into a body of water underneath a cloud, or reach the highest land under a cloud. It’s also important to note that you cannot be struck by lightning in quick succession.
