What is Fortnite OG?

Fortnite OG was a limited-time season that revisited maps from several of Chapter One’s seasons. It started with Season Five and ended with Season X, bringing long-time players on a nostalgia trip and introducing newer fans to how the game used to look.

As well as changing up the map, the Fortnite OG season brought back a bunch of old weapons, vehicles, and items to complete the experience. There was even a Battle Pass for this event, even though it was a bit shorter than your average Fortnite season.
