Bugha shows why Floppers need to be nerfed in Fortnite

Fortnite pro Bugha and his squad were eliminated by a player using an absurd number of Floppers to stay alive in the storm. Should Floppers be nerfed?

Floppers have become one of the most powerful healing items in Fortnite. They only take one second to consume and grant you 50 HP. You can carry up to four of them, making them far more effective than Medkits or Bandages.

Epic is pushing us towards fishing this season and many feel as though the natural shields are the evidence of this. The drop-rate of shields seems to be lower than it has been in previous seasons, forcing players to head for the water for healing items.

Fishing has become even easier with the addition of the Harpoon Gun. You can clear several fishing holes in under a minute with the new weapon, making it a must-carry item in competitive Fortnite.

The result? More players have a healthy inventory full of fish that allow them to stay alive in the storm. Fortnite World Cup winner Bugha and his squad died to one of these players this past weekend.

The player in question didn’t have one or two stacks of Floppers, though. He had at least 11 Floppers in his inventory.

Bugha and his squad died to this player, and Bugha entered Replay Mode to see how the opponent stayed in the storm for so long. The World Cup winner watched in amazement as the player ate 11 Floppers before moving towards the new circle.

We don’t even know if these were all of the Floppers in the player’s inventory, as Bugha exited Replay Mode after his foe at his 11th fish. One thing’s for sure: these items let you tank storm damage.

All of this begs the question: should Floppers receive a nerf? Epic wouldn’t have to do much to them, as players carrying 11 or more probably isn’t a regular occurrence.

One idea is to slightly increase the duration it takes to consume the Floppers – or to limit the stack size to three instead of four.

What do you think? Are fish too overpowered in Fortnite? Let us know in the comments.

XP Coins have returned to Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to find all of them as of Season 5 Week 7.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!

How to disable pre-edits in Fortnite

After over a year of fan requests, Epic have added a ‘disable pre-edit’ option to Fortnite. Here’s where you can find it.

Published

In v15.20, Epic Games added a much-requested setting to Fortnite: ‘disable pre-edits.’ Here’s how it works and how to select it.

Finally, after years of Reddit threads, Twitter posts, and pro players begging, Epic added a ‘disable pre-edit’ setting to Fortnite.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new setting, including how it works and where to find it.

What does ‘pre-editing’ mean?

Pre-editing refers to the ability to edit a structure before placing it. The most popular use of pre-edits throughout Fortnite history was a cone/ramp edit when controller players had to use Combat Pro.

Now, however, very few players use pre-edits. Instead, pre-edits offer an obstacle, as they’re almost always completed by mistake. Of course, there are still some niche applications for pre-edits, but most players wanted Epic to add an option to disable these edits.

How to disable pre-edits

You can find the new option under the settings tab (cog wheel) in the start menu. Scroll down to the “Building” section, and you’ll see four options. One of them is the new “Disable Pre-Edit Option.”

If you turn this off, you’ll no longer be able to edit structures before placing them – good news for the bulk of the Fortnite community.

If may have taken Epic years to finally add this option, but it’s finally here. Next stop, an FoV slider!
