Reality Augments are gameplay perks and buffs that become available to players at certain intervals throughout matches in Fortnite. While playing a match, players will now be presented with a choice between two random Reality Augments. If you don’t like the Augments on offer, you can try to reroll them for something better. The longer you stay in the match, the more Augments you can obtain.

When a Reality Augment becomes available, a small Ready icon will pop up on the right side of the display. To activate an Augment, press the 7 key on PC or right on the D-pad with a controller to view the available Augments. You will be given two Augments to choose from each time they become available. If you don’t like the Augments on offer, you can reroll them once for free to try for something better, with subsequent rerolls costing Gold Bars.
