Mandalorian is not the only fascinating character coming to the Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass

As soon as the trailer begins, Jones makes his intentions clear: “No one is escaping the loop. Not on my watch.”

 The first bounty hunter to join him on his mission is Mandalorian. Epic already revealed the great Star Wars bounty hunter in a teaser video a while ago. However, the recent Battle Pass trailer introduces many more interesting characters who will join the hunt.

The guy has never been defeated”- the next hunter to join the mission is Menace, the fiercest gladiator from reality. The character will be available in various levels with the first version being a simple bare chested gladiator. However, at his final form, he gets a mythical armor with a bright headgear emitting a purple light.

Next, Jones introduces Mancake. He’s a “Flapjack forged on a griddle of rage.”, who looks like a walking set of pancakes dressed up as a cowboy. Throughout his forms, his outfit changes colors with the final form donning a cowboy hat and a moustache.

The trailer also introduces Mave, “a shape-shifting barbarian warrior.” Apart from armor and appearance upgrades, Mave will also have the option to don wings. While these actually work or are just for show is something that will become certain after gameplay release.

There are various other characters who will be a part of the new season’s Battle Pass. Information about them is available on the Battle Pass website. Moreover, Epic has once again brought back the 1500 V-Bucks. This means that the pass will only cost 950 V-Bucks but will reward players with 1500 in return. Not only that, but the Epic will also add character specific weapons and back blings to the store.
