While Fortnite Battle Royale’s Season 5 Week 10 in full swing, there’s no doubt that plenty of players are doing their best to finish out all of this week’s challenges in order to prepare for what Epic Games has in store for Season 6. Of course, that doesn’t mean the developer won’t be bringing fresh items into the mix here and there, as it appears as if the studio is set to add a Port-a-Fortress item to the free-to-play game soon.
As seen in the tweet below, Fortnite‘s Port-a-Fortress item is set to be added to the game soon, with the object’s description stating that players can “toss down the Port-a-Fortress and take defense to new heights”. While no exact date has been given for the item’s inclusion, there’s a good chance we will see it added at the title’s weekly reset.

For those unaware, Fortnite previously hosted a Port-a-Fort item, which let players construct an entire steel-based tower structure on the fly, so it stands to reason that the Port-a-Fortress will be a much grander version of that. After all, its description says it will “take defense to new heights”, which surely means it will be a difficult building to destroy and will offer its owner plenty of protection when they need it.
So, it will be interesting to see the frequency at which Port-a-Fortress items drop in Fortnite once they get added into the game, and whether or not they will provide ample defense at a moment’s notice. At any rate, the structures at least won’t fall prey to the power of the once-mighty Drum Gun, as the firearm has been tucked away in the Vault for the time being. All things considered, though, we will likely see even more items added alongside the Port-a-Fortress, so there could be a new weapon that becomes everyone’s favorite soon.
Fortnite is available now in early access on iOS, Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with an Android beta currently underway.
