Harvester is one of the new Augments added with the Dragon Ball update. With this Augment equipped, players can destroy different types of foliage to get Big Bush Bombs and forageable items. Similarly, consuming forgeable items will have an increased effect. While Harvester may not be the fanciest Augment this season, it can be used strategically to survive for long. Slap Berries are the best consumables available this season, and it's highly recommended that players carry them while using the Harvester Augment.

As for the Augment itself, it is exceptionally rare since it was newly introduced. Players can select it when the Reality Augments pop up during a match. If Harvester is not in one of the options, the players need to wait for the next match. Rerolling Augments won't work, and only older discovered Augments will show up in the selection pool. Naturally, players will need to keep playing to unlock the new Augments like Rift-Jector Seat, Icy Slide, and Mythic Munitions.

Best Augments to use with Harvester in Fortnite

Pairing up Augments is an essential task this season in Fortnite, and players can strategize beforehand to get the best perk combinations. Here are some Reality Augments that can be used with the Harvester in Fortnite.

  • Rift-Jector Seat: Rift-Jector Seat is one of the best Augments introduced this season, and players can use it with Harvester. Rift-Jector allows players to rift away from a location whenever their shields are broken. Combine this with Harvester to rotate away to a remote location and find forageable items to restore health and shields.
  • Soaring Sprints: Since Harvester increases the effectiveness of forageable items, players can combine it with Soaring Sprints. Collect Slap Berries, consume them, and get the ultimate stamina boost to keep sprinting for longer.
  • Bush Warrior: Bush Warrior is the perfect Augment to pair up with Harvester for several reasons. After restoring health and shields with the Bush Warrior perk, players can destroy the foliage to get Big Bush Bombs. Ensure the Harvester perk is equipped before destroying foliage across the map.
