How to capture a train in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1

New trains in Fortnite contain NPCs and loot. Here’s how you can capture one.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 is off and running. The latest Chapter and Season offers new weapons, items, mechanics, cosmetics, and more. One of the new features revolves around a train that travels around the map, which players can use as a free ride to the Storm Circle. Additionally, you can defeat non-player characters (NPCs) and capture the train for a box of loot. This guide explains how you can capture the train in Fortnite Chapter 5 and grab some reasonable loot, including weapons, gadgets, and healing items.

The train is easy to spot this season since it travels around the map without stopping. As a result, you must first locate where the train is while gliding in the air. Once you find it, head in that direction and prepare to jump onto it while it's moving.

You will often see a barrage of NPCs you need to fight. However, when the train made it our way, we found it empty, with the giant loot chest unopened. Upon opening the chest, we received all Rare weapons with a mixture of Medkits, Shield Potions, and Mini Shield Potions.

While the loot is not outstanding, it's much better than Common and Uncommon weapons. On top of the weapons and items, you have free rotation to the next Storm Circle or wherever you want to venture. Now that you know how to capture a train in Fortnite Chapter 5, let's explore what else is new this season.
