A new feature can be found in the top left of your screen when playing Fortnite this season, but only for one week. Your Heat Level (or Team Heat if you are in Duos, Squads, or Trios) shows how much Heat you have gained as you play. The more you gain, the more buffs you receive:

  • 1 Heat: more Gold Bars dropped from eliminated players;
  • 2 Heat: movement speed up 15% and 100% HP regenerated when resting;
  • 3 Heat: movement speed up 20% and 150% HP and Shield regenerated when resting;
  • 4 Heat: movement speed up 25% and full HP and Shield regenerated when resting.

The Heat Level can be increased in a few different ways as you progress through the game. The best way to gain Heat is by eliminating players, but there are a few more things you can do:

  • Eliminate opponents, which can be other players, bosses, and Cold Blooded Agents (NPCs);
  • Collect Gold from Chests, Cash Registers, and eliminated players;
  • Open Chests, which include regular, rare, and Oathbound chests;
  • Open Freezers;
  • Open Supply Drops, including DBZ-themed drops;
  • Open Cash Registers;
  • Open Vaults (the three vaults are found at Faulty Splits, Brutal Bastion, and Shattered Slabs).

The easiest of these are to open various Chests and Freezers and collect the Gold, while the trickiest are to defeat bosses, gain a Keycard, and open Vaults. The higher your Heat Level, the more hostile the Cold Blooded agents will be towards you, so try to attempt the Vault while your Heat Level is low.

That is all you need to know about gaining Heat and increasing your Heat Level in Fortnite. Check out more information in our Fortnite guides section.
