A brand new item has been added to Fortnite Battle Royale, which allows players to see exactly where the storm is going to go ahead of time.

*Update – Epic Games Dev Says New ‘Eye of The Storm Tracker’ Was Accidentally Added to Fortnite Battle Royale

As with most battle royale games, it is very important to keep an eye on the storm in order to avoid unfortunate death in Fortnite.

The storm, or gas in other games like PUBG, is used to push the remaining players together on the map, so as to avoid too little action.

But the storm circle area can also be used to a players advantage, by getting there early you can of course wait on the edge for unsuspecting opponents who are trying to move in.

This new addition to Fortnite will help players do just that, as well as plan in advance their movements on the map, so to avoid losing health or even dying in the storm.

The new ‘Eye of The Storm Tacker’ is a loot item, which players can find around the map, similar to who you would find weapons and shields etc., and will show them the exact path of the storm on their map.

This item will be particularly useful for one of the Week 4 challenges of course, which tasks players to ‘Visit the center of different Storm Circles in a single match’.

It is also a sneaky surprise addition to the game, as there was no mention of it in recent patch notes, and Epic Games haven’t made an announcement about it on their official channels at the time of writing.
