5 No-brainer changes for Fortnite Season 2

We all have a wishlist, but here are five changes that are almost certain to come with Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2.

We all have a wishlist, but here are five changes that are almost certain to come with Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2.

Fortnite Season 2 is only two weeks away. The longest season in Fortnite history – spanning five months – will finally be over.

We have a ton of questions as to what Season 2 will bring us, but we also have a few ideas as to what Epic will be changing. Here are five no-brainer updates that are nearly guaranteed to happen when Season 2 releases on February 20.

Leveling system change

The Medal Punchcard in Fortnite might be the single most annoying update to Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 1. Sure, it was cool to see your achievements pop up for the first few days of the season. As weeks and months passed, however, they just got more and more irksome.

When you combine this with the deafening sound of leveling up, the achievement system in Fortnite Chapter 2 became more of a burden than a reward. Gaining a medal or a level at the wrong time could spell your death.

All Epic has to do is give us an option to disable the sound cues for leveling in Season 2. This might be the number-one quality-of-life improvement they can make to the game.

Land vehicle

Epic Games

We’ve had about enough of driving boats on land, I think. They’re great for water travel, but can get you stuck if you take them up the wrong hill.

A land and/or amphibious vehicle would be a perfect addition to Fortnite Season 2. Epic could unvault one of the old vehicles or bring a brand-new one to the game. Many of us have been eyeing those EGO cars since Season 1 began.

Fishing Rod spawn rate adjustment

Epic Games

The spawn rates of the Fishing Rods is way too high in Season 1. You can find a Fishing Rod anywhere on the map: in barrels, in chests, and in floor loot. You can even find Harpoon Guns in Supply Drops.

This item is single-handedly clogging the loot pool. Epic can:

  1. Take Fishing Rods out of chests
  2. Nerf the Fishing Rod spawn rate
  3. Only spawn Fishing Rods in barrels

Any of these options would suffice, but the last would probably be the best.

Make Gliders standard in Team Rumble

Epic Games

Glider Re-Deploy is so old that Epic doesn’t even have an icon for the item anymore. If you drop your Gliders in Team Rumble, all you see is a blue glow where they should be.

It’s about time that Epic enables Re-Deploy in Team Rumble and is done with it. Stop clogging our inventories with an item that pretty much everyone carries by default.

Competitive mobility

This is the no-brainer of all no-brainers. With Fortnite v11.50, Epic brought Launch Pads back to the game. They kept them out of competitive modes, however.

Epic is being extremely careful with the competitive balance in Chapter 2, which is a positive mindset adjustment from previous seasons. It’s better to be over-careful than careless.

Epic Games

Competitive Fortnite needs mobility more than public Fortnite matches do. Epic recently banned pickaxe swinging from competitive games (the practice of swinging your pickaxe to ‘truce’ with an opponent). The primary reason players use this strategy is the lack of mobility in the game.

Epic will almost certainly add Launch Pads to competitive playlists, along with – hopefully – some new mobility items.

We don’t know what Season 2 will bring, but we can be sure that almost all of these will happen on February 20. At least, we think they will.

Want to try out some of the Fortnite Chapter 2 Zone Wars maps? Take a look at these five options here.

Zone Wars is one of the most popular Creative Mode map genres in Fortnite – so much so that Epic included a Zone Wars playlist during Chapter 2.

We probably won’t see another official Zone Wars lineup while Chapter 2 is still fresh, but here are five updated map codes for some of the best Fortnite Chapter 2 Zone Wars maps for your Playground Fill matches.

Make sure to get to the Hub as fast as you can so you can avoid the Red vs. Blue battle.

Realistic Solos (XA)(Pack 1): 1234-0621-9943

Realistic Solos (XA)(Pack 1) by Prettyboy may not have “zone wars” in the name, but it is an authentic competitive experience that can get intense quickly. Two to 16 players spawn in random locations across various well-crafted maps. With randomized loadouts, players race to be the last one standing.

Nuketown 2025 Zone Wars: 1149-4422-7888

Nuketown 2025 zone wars by Clapzfn is more of a novelty than anything. It’s very cool to revisit this highly detailed recreation of a Call of Duty classic. Some of the buildings have invisible barriers at the top, and the storm always pushes to the center of the map. Regardless, it’s a ton of fun to be the last player standing in Nuke Town.

Desert Zone Wars Chapter 2: 1811-9621-1739

Those who have been playing zone wars maps for a long time are probably familiar with Jotapegame’s desert zone wars maps. However, this is the latest installment in the series that incorporates the changes made in Chapter 2. Enjoy the classic desert-themed zone wars with modern weapons and items.

Area 51 Alien Zone Wars: 9843-7754-8806

Area 51 Zone Wars by Dropnite is one of the most aesthetically pleasing zone wars maps available. From the way it spawns players in to all of the decorative pieces, it really makes you feel like you’re in Area 51. It also offers a fantastic competitive experience that’s sure to get players ready for the final moments of FNCS tournaments.

50 Player Zonewars: 6167-1882-6710

50 Player Zonewars is one of the most intense creative maps once the lobby is full. The loot pool changes regularly to match Arena Mode, and there are plenty of different maps. For the higher skill tourneys that have 50 or more people in the endgame, this mode is perfect for realistic practice.

Leave us some codes in the comments if we missed your favorite Fortnite Chapter 2 Zone Wars maps!

All Fortnite Season 6 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 6 is here, and only a few Exotic weapons made it. Here are all Exotic weapon locations for the new Fortnite season.

Fortnite-Season-6-Exotic-Weapon-Locations

Fortnite Season 6 marked the return of Exotic weapons to Fortnite. Not all of the Season 6 weapons are there, however, and they’ve moved locations.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season c, with the addition of crafting, the map changes, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 6 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include the Spire Jumpboots and the Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun.

What’s more, Epic added craftable items to the game that allow players to create unique weapons out of existing parts. For instance, a Mechanical Bow and two Shockwave Grenades make the Shockwave Bow – a massive upgrade from both weapons.

Fortnite Season 6 Exotic weapon locations

Exotic weapons have returned to Fortnite Season 6, but not as many as we had in Season 5. These will be supplementary items rather than the focus of the season, which appears to be on the new crafting mechanic.

Many of the NPCs who sold these items in Season 5 have also either moved locations or don’t sell them anymore, so a new guide is needed. Here’s a map of all of the Season 6 Exotic weapon locations.

Fortnite Season 6 All Exotic Weapon Locations

As you can see, there are seven Exotic weapons and items currently available in Fortnite Season 6. These are the:

  • Hop Rock Dualies: sold by Gutbomb in Logjam Woodworks
  • Chug Cannon: sold by Slurp Jonesy in Slurpy Swamp
  • Shadow Tracker Pistol: sold by Power Chord in Dance Club Cabin
  • Dub Shotgun: sold by Burnout south of Steamy Stacks
  • Grappler Bow: sold by Lara Croft in Stealthy Stronghold
  • Unstable Bow: sold by Rebirth Raven northwest of Sweaty Sands
  • Raz’s Mythic Explosive Bow: dropped after eliminating Raz at The Spire

The good news is that, unlike last season, all of the NPCs that sell Exotics only spawn in one location – at least, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as Epic add more Exotics to Fortnite Season 6. We expect to see them takes things further as the season goes on, so stay tuned to more news on Exotic weapons.

Fortnite Crew Deimos Skin

Epic Games introduced the Fortnite Crew Subscription service during Chapter 2 Season 5. For $11.99 USD a month players would receive an exclusive skin set, 1,000 V-Bucks, and instant access to the current season’s Battle Pass.

As Fortnite has continued the service, it has also sweetened the deal by including memberships to other subscription services like Disney+. For the month of May, subscribers are being offered more for their money than ever before.

The May Fortnite Crew Pack will offer the Deimos skin set which comes with a pickaxe, back bling, and weapon wrap. This also includes Deimos’ green skin variants and a loading screen background. Fortnite’s Deimos is a modernized depiction of the Greek god of dread.

Deimos will also be introduced as a playable character in Fortnite’s original Save The World game mode. Fortnite launched in 2017 with only the Save The World mode but was popularized when the Battle Royale mode launched a few months later. May Fortnite Crew members will also gain permanent access to Save The World.

Subscribers are also being offered three months of Spotify Premium for free. However, this offer is only available to new Spotify Premium customers. Existing or previous customers will have to create a new account if they want to redeem this offer. The offer expires on June 30, 2021 at 8 p.m. EST.

The May Crew membership comes with the normal monthly benefits such as access to the Battle Pass and 1,000 V-Bucks. Epic Games stated that every Thursday during the month of May, Fortnite Crew members would receive special in-game bonuses.

While the weekly benefits remain a mystery, it will be interesting to see what Fortnite has in store for players. The May Fortnite Crew pack is offering the best deal yet and weekly challenges/rewards will only add more value. We’ll keep you posted about the weekly Crew bonuses whenever they’re announced.
