Fortnite Storm

The lack of mobility in Fortnite keeps a lot of players stuck in the storm. This item concept could fix the problem.

It’s no secret that Epic nerfed mobility into the ground when they released Fortnite Chapter 2. At the same time, the storms seem to be moving a bit faster than they have in the past.

The community has been relatively split on the topic of decreased mobility, but more players are coming around to the ‘we want more mobility’ side of the aisle as the longest season in Fortnite history drags on.

There are a lot of reasons that Fortnite players want additional mobility, but the most universal reason is that more and more players are getting stuck in the storm. A Bandage Bazooka and some Floppers can keep you alive for longer than previous Fortnite seasons, but no one wants to play a running simulator while they stop and heal.

If you don’t have one of these tools, though, you’re out of luck. A Medkit and Bandages aren’t enough to heal through a storm that always seems to be pulling towards the corners of the map.

What if there was an item that could heal you while you’re on the move. That’s what u/pink_melon22 created and posted to the r/FortniteBR subreddit.

This concept is of a Rare torch that you can light at campfires. It will heal you for 2 HP for 25 seconds and will only be able to be used once. Relighting it would allow players to camp in the storm late-game, which is already an issue with Floppers and the Bandage Bazooka.

If there’s no campfire nearby, you can also use 50 wood to light the fire. This is a way to bring a campfire with you so you don’t have to stop and heal.

Getting lost in the storm is always frustrating and it’s not always possible to prevent. You have no options but to fight if another player or squad challenge you while you’re rotating. At least with the torch, getting caught in the storm will be far more manageable.

Fortnite player shows the best methods for unlocking Agent Peely

What’s the best way to unlock XP for the golden Agent Peely?

The golden variant of Agent Peely is one of the popular topics in Fortnite Season 2. Those who started at level one – with no tier or XP purchases – would need to grind-out 29.5 million XP in order to reach level 350 for a fully-golden Agent Peely.

For most players, this is completely unattainable. Even after you complete all of the challenges, punch cards, and daily challenges, you’ll need to earn 15.9 million XP through your normal Fortnite matches – a mark very few people will come close to hitting.

One Fortnite player broke everything down into a graphic, letting players know the best way to earn XP in Fortnite and unlock the elusive golden Agent Peely.

As you can probably guess, playing normal Fortnite matches isn’t going to cut it. If you play for the win, you’ll need to play an estimated 19.36 hours per day – assuming that you started at the beginning of the season.

If you play Fortnite with a loot-first mindset, you can substantially cut down on this time – of course, you won’t want to break any of the ammo boxes, llamas, or chests. This playstyle will bring you Agent Peely after 6.44 hours per day.

Finally, we have the best way to grind Fortnite XP for Agent Peely: Team Rumble. Play this game for loot, kills, and XP and you’ll be able to unlock Agent Peely after 3.86 hours per day. The math was completed and graphed by Reddit user u/zMuska.

Of course, these hours-per-day breakdowns assume that you are skilled at Fortnite and play every day. If not, it will take you a lot longer.

Players have already voiced their frustration with Epic Games over the golden Agent Peely grind. Some have even pledged to boycott any Item Shop XP that has been rumored to be going on sale – although we haven’t seen it yet.

Most players hope that Epic temper the XP requirements next season. They promised us “more fun, less grind” with this Battle Pass – which is technically true if you only want to reach level 100. Completionists know that it isn’t as simple as that.

Epic push Fortnite Season 3 and Doomsday Event back one week

Epic have pushed back the Fortnite Season 3 release date by one week.

Published

Fans have been gearing up for Fortnite Season 3 this past week, with news of the Doomsday Event coming this weekend and Season 3 starting next week.

On May 28, Epic released a short blog post that pushed everything back one week. They didn’t go into detail as to why they made the shift, but are likely working on balancing new game mechanics, weapons, items, etc.

“In an effort to get everything ready for Chapter 2 – Season 3, we’re extending Season 2 by one week,” The Fortnite Team wrote in their blog post. “The new launch day of Season 3 will be Thursday, June 11. Also make sure to check out a one-time-only live event called The Device, now scheduled for Saturday, June 6 at 2 PM ET (please show up 30 minutes early to help secure your spot, space is limited!).”

This is disappointing to a lot of Fortnite players but could be good news in the long run. We’d rather wait a week for the new season than have it released in a broken state.

Rumors have it that a flood is coming, meaning massive changes for the island and, potentially, some new mechanics and vehicles added to the mix. Swimming underwater seems to be headed to the game as well, as leaks suggest.

This is a tough mechanic to get right. A lot of other competitive games have tried and failed, so this may be the ultimate reason for the Season 3 delay.

As of now, the new Fortnite Season 3 release date is June 11, 2020. We’ll keep you posted if and when more details become clear.

Rumors

Hand Cannon update suggests potential return in Fortnite Season 3

A change to the weapon model of the Hand Cannon suggests that it may be returning in Fortnite Season 3.

Fortnite Hand Cannon Problem

The Hand Cannon was always one of the Fortnite community’s favorite weapons. It feels like one of the core guns in the game – a high-caliber pistol that can deal some massive damage if a player has good aim.

We’ve been missing the Hand Cannon since its vaulting at the beginning of Chapter 2. It’s one of those weapons that’s almost sure to return at some point, however, even if it’s changed from its original form.

That day might be sooner rather than later. One attentive Fortnite player noticed that the Hand Cannon received an update during a recent patch. The damage numbers appear to be the same, but the model of the weapon looks a bit different.

It’s safe to assume that the Hand Cannon will return to Fortnite at some point – likely in Season 3. What remains to be seen is the form that the weapon takes when it comes back.

Will the damage be tweaked? Will it cause a knockback effect as it does in Spy Games? Will it one-shot structures like it has in the past? We’ll have to wait and see.

At this point, it seems probable that we’ll get the Hand Cannon when Season 3 launches. It feels like a perfect candidate for an unvaulted weapon to start the season.
