Fortnite OG Recharge release date

Fortnite Recharge has been launched in Fortnite after the end of Metallica’s live concert, which took place on June 22, 2024and lasted about 20-30 minutes.

What is Fortnite OG Recharge?

Fortnite Recharge is a all-new Battle Royale mode from Epic Games that lets players reminisce about the game’s early days by playing on a new map with classic locations and weapons from Fornite OG.

It is made up of 40 players competing in 10 different teams in a standard Zero Construction or Battle Royale game to obtain a Victory Royale. However, Epic has changed the rules by allowing you and your teammates to constantly respawn during your games as long as one member of your team remains alive on the island.

To eliminate a team in Fortnite Recharge, all team members must be eliminated before any of them have time to respawn.

To play Fortnite Recharge, you need to go to the main menu, select Fortnite Recharge mode in Discovery, and click on the “Play” button to start OG mode.

Fortnite Recharge launched in Chapter 5 Season 3 on June 22, to everyone’s surprise.

Here’s exactly how Recovery works in Fortnite Recharge:

  • If a player is eliminated, their individual recovery countdown starts and once complete, they will respawn.
  • The recovery timer is 30 seconds at the start of the game and can last up to 40 seconds in later stages.
  • Your teammates can reduce this recovery time by 2 seconds by knocking out an opponent, by 4 seconds by eliminating one, and by 10 seconds by eliminating an entire team.
  • If you or your teammates are downed, but the recovery timer is over, players can revive immediately instead of waiting to be revived.
  • At the end of a game, reinstatements are disabled, meaning eliminated team members cannot return.

When a player is revived, they will spawn with a common assault rifle and 100 wood (if Build is available). Alternatively, if a player is eliminated, they will drop Small Shield Potions, Medium Ammo, Light Ammo, Rifle Shells, all their loot and for Construction only, 50 of each Building Material.
