Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass Has Adorable New Pets
Meet Remus and Hamirez.
The Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 7 update is available now and is packed with new content--flyable planes for five players, new skins, and big changes to the map. We've since also gotten a new update--patch 7.01--but arguably the most important addition of the past week, however, is the introduction of two new pets: Hamirez and Remus.
The former is a chubby little hamster: "Give her a wheel and she's be your best friend," Epic says in her description. Hamirez is wide-eyed and loving life, from the looks of it. Occasionally she'll swing from her wheel, falling off and scrambling back up in very cute fashion.
Remus, meanwhile, is a husky that is described as being "untamed and unafraid." He hangs out in a little basket, constantly looking in different directions and occasionally getting on his hind legs to take a peek at what's happening in the distance. Again, another adorable addition to the pet selection. Both Hamirez and Remus have alternative looks, which you can check out below.
New pets are just a small part of what Fortnite Season 7 offers. The new Battle Pass includes over 100 cosmetic items that can be unlocked by doing challenges to score Battle Stars, which then level up your pass. We've gone through the entire Battle Pass and put together a gallery featuring all Fortnite Season 7's new Skins, Back Bling, Gliders, Sprays, Harvesting Tools, Emotes, and more. Check it out to see if there's anything that tickles your fancy.
If you do spot something that you want, the best way to get it is to start knocking out those challenges. Season 7, Week 1's challenges are available now, and one of them is quite tricky. It requires you to dance in a number of forbidden locations, and if you don't know where they are you could spend hours looking. Lucky for you, we've put together a guide to the forbidden locations to make this challenge a breeze. You can also see our guide to another challenge that has you dance on RVs.
Another major new addition to Fortnite that comes alongside Season 7 is Creative. This is an extension of the Playground mode Epic Games experimented with during Season 6. When you boot up the game now, you'll find a third option alongside Battle Royale and Save The World. In Creative, players are given their very own island where they can build Fortnite experiences to their taste. This can be done alone or with friends, and creations are saved from session to session.
