Brilliant Fortnite concept brings siphon back as an item

Most players want siphon back in public Fortnite matches. This concept is a brilliant compromise.

Published

on

Siphon in Fortnite is a topic that will always pop up from time to time. Epic added it to all modes back when Apex Legends first released, but later removed it from non-competitive modes, citing “unhealthy aggression” as their reasoning.

The system may have only been in normal Fortnite modes for a month or so, but that was long enough for a large chunk of the player base to get hooked. Siphon’s return is at the top of the wishlist of many players. It helped incentivize aggressive gameplay rather than third-party involvement.

Since its removal, players have periodically come up with new ways for Epic to add siphon to all Fortnite modes. Reddit user u/Bukakanga came up with the brilliant idea to make siphon an item rather than a system.

We don’t agree with all of the points in the graphic, below, but the idea is a strong one. Instead of making siphon a system, Epic could make it an item that adds a bit of luck and player choice. Aggressive players may choose to carry siphon while passive players opt for another type of healing item.

Now, let’s talk specifics. Three rarities of Green, Blue, and Purple sound about right – but Gold and Mythic could be too much. You should probably be able to carry other healing items while using the siphon item, as well, so Epic could make it take two slots instead of one.

It also seems like you should be able to drop the item for a friend or if you find something else that you’d prefer to carry. Otherwise, a low-level siphon item wouldn’t be worth grabbing in the first place.

The specifics could use some tweaking, but the idea remains a great one. Epic could implement something like this in public modes to meet the public halfway. This could help limit the “unhealthy aggression” while addressing a much-requested community feature. Let’s hope Epic see this suggestion!

fortnite community made skins

The Fortnite community has grown to house a number of creative subcommunities from map makers to concept artists. Some community-made Fortnite skin concepts are so good, Epic Games couldn’t help but put them in the game.

Of the hundreds of skins that are in Fortnite, over 20 of them originated from a design made by a fan of the game. These outfits aren’t like the Icon Series which are made to look like a certain personality. Instead, the designer is credited with the creation of the skin and their work is shared on Twitter and other social media platforms.

Fortnite concept artists are found all over the internet from Reddit to Twitter to Instagram. And community-made Fortnite skins have been trickling into the game over the seasons. With a recent survey revealing more community-made skins that Epic Games is considering, it seems this trend is one Fortnite is going to continue.

Brilliant Fortnite concept brings back the Rift-To-Go in a unique way

With the rumored return of the Rift-To-Go, this concept fits the current Fortnite chapter, perfectly.

Fortnite Rift-To-Go concept

Rifts are appearing more and more frequently around the map in Chapter 2 Season 4. The beginning of the season featured no rifts, but that number has now grown to the double-digits after the introduction of Marvel POIs and the implementation of Fortnitemares.

It seems like rifts are, slowly but surely, making their way back into the Fortnite meta. This could usher-in a fan-favorite returning item in the Rift-To-Go, which most fans would love to see in the game.

The Rift-To-Go was the Ace-in-the-hole during a Fortnite battle. In over you head? No problem, just hit the Rift-To-Go and reposition yourself. In competitive play, the Rift-To-Go was a must-carry for rotational purposes. All around, it was one of the best mobility items in Fortnite and few players would have anything bad to say about it.

We think that a return of the Rift-To-Go is more than likely in the near future, but Epic have an opportunity to but a Cheaper 2 spin on the classic item, What if you could catch a Rift in the same way that you catch Fireflies? That’s what Reddit user u/Star_Wyse is proposing.

With Chapter 2’s implementation of foraged items, Epic allowed players to pick up Mushrooms, Apples, and more to save them for later. A similar mechanic for Rifts would make a lot of sense.

Most of the Fortnite concepts that we see are far-fetched or too good to be true. This one isn’t and seems to fit exactly in-line with what Epic have been doing, lately.

Will the Rift-To-Go return for Fortnite Season 5? Only time will tell. If it does, we hope to see some mechanic like this play a role in its return.
