How to Get Augments in Fortnite
Players can get Augments by playing a Fortnite match and selecting the one they want to equip when the prompt becomes available. You will know it’s time to pick an Augment when a blue “Ready” text appears under your minimap. When this happens, press right on the d-pad or ‘7’ on PC to open the menu and choose between two Augments.
The blue “Ready” text happens every few minutes during the match, allowing you to select more Augments for your character. They are stackable, and you will keep your previously accepted Augments when you acquire a new one. All Augments will be activated for the duration of the match until you are eliminated.
How to Reroll Augments in Fortnite
If you decide that you don’t like your Augment selection, the game allows you to swap it out for another through the reroll option. To reroll, hold the “Reroll” button shown at the bottom of the Augment menu to force another randomized Augment to appear on the screen. You can only reroll once per match for free.
