Later in the Season, Indiana Jones fans will be able to unlock and play as the titular character himself.
New Locations and Weapons
Players will be able to explore and traverse new and unique locations, all of which bring an earthy element. Reality Falls will be made up of giant bouncy mushrooms, purple trees, loot-filled caverns, waterfalls, and geysers that players can use to spring from. In keeping with the nature theme, players will be able to use Reality Seed Pods to grow a Reality Sapling. These Saplings will have better loot each time they are weeded, eventually bearing Mythic loot.
Epic Games also confirmed that a number of new weapons will be coming to the latest season. The Two-Shot Shotgun will debut, offering players a burst pump Shotgun capable of fierce damage. If you land both shots of its burst, you can deliver a devastating punch. There is also a Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR) with a range that falls between an Assault Rifle and Sniper Rifle, alongside a new Hammer Assault Rifle.

More Ways to Travel
That’s right folks! Ballers are back and they’re more versatile and durable than ever before. This time around, they’ll have boosted health and run-on battery charge. They can float on water and of course, roll around and grapple onto surfaces.
Season 3 is also introducing a high-flying amusement park ride structure that is without a doubt going to cause lots of chaos and fun. Players will also be able to ride wolves and boars and must simply jump on top of the animals to ride them. Whilst riding them you’ll still be able to shoot and throw weapons like a knight riding atop your noble steed.
