Concept: Rewards for winning in Fortnite Battle Royale

Published

on

Inspired by this recent post on Reddit by /u/SecureAd, we thought we’d whip up a concept of what a winner’s store could look like in Fortnite.

There’s currently no real reward for winning a game of Battle Royale except the adrenaline rush you get near the end. A shop available exclusively to those who get frequent Victory Royales would be a good way to motivate people to play even more.

Every win would grant you one ticket which could be used to purchase cosmetics in a new ‘Winner’s Store’ with prices depending on the rarity of an item.

The rewards featured above are just a concept of how it could work, with items either refreshing daily from a select pool as they do in the normal shop or being available for a limited time, perhaps with each season.

Another compromise could be to reward players with a small amount of V-Bucks for each win, though this seems unlikely to happen as it’s in Epic’s best interest to keep desirable cosmetics locked behind a paywall.

What do you think of this concept? Should frequent winners be able to earn exclusive items through playing the game?

This concept brings grilling to Fortnite in time for summer

This thematic addition to Fortnite Season 3 is perfect for Summer Splash.

Fortnite Season 3 has put a new emphasis on food. Vegetable boxes spawn all across the map while players farm for cabbage and corn as a new way to heal. Most players are fans of this change. The more healing items in the game, the better.

Why stop there? Why not allow us to cook our food for additional HP? Well, one Fortnite player made a concept that allows us to do just that. Reddit user u/MapleSmoothie created a Hot Dog concept. You can find them in fridges and eat them raw, or grill them for greater healing power.

This concept, as its creator points out, would be a perfect addition to the Summer Splash event. Grilling and summertime go hand in hand, and Epic even have an existing emote to correspond with the mechanic.

We don’t need to stop with hot dogs, either. Epic could allow us to grill corn and add other meats like burgers and sausages. Some of them could even grant shields, allowing you to carry some food versions of Minis and Big Pots.

It’s probably too late for Epic to add this to Season 3. There’s a chance that we could see it next year, however. Epic have always welcomed community concepts with game mechanics and skins. This one would be a small, yet thematic addition that could bring a new element into the game.

How to find Gnomes at Homely Hills

The Season 3 Week 1 challenges are live! Here are the Homely Hills gnome locations.

Fortnite Season 3 has arrived. For the first time in a long time, we’re excited to hop in and complete our challenges.

The first batch of challenges went live when the update released. Players who don’t plan on paying for extra tiers are eager to rank up as quickly as they can. Thankfully, this week’s challenges aren’t too difficult.

The only challenge that requires any sort of guide is “Find Gnomes at Homely Hills.” You only have to find three, though, which means you’ll finish this challenge in one game of Team Rumble.

First, you’re going to need to find Homely Hills. It’s located northeast of Pleasant Park and appears to be a reworked version of what was already there. Here is a close-up of Homely Hills along with the locations of the three gnomes.

The first is located next to a grill in one of the yards, the second is beside the road, and the third is next to a rock.

This is a relatively nondescript area, so these landmarks probably won’t help very much. Here’s a video to make things easier for you.

As we said, this is the first time that we’ve been truly excited to complete our challenges. Let’s hope this isn’t another 100+ day season and this feeling lasts a while.

These creative trap ideas could spice up Fortnite Season 3

These trap concepts would inject some creativity into the Fortnite loot pool in Season 3.

We’re in the dog days of Fortnite Season 2, which means we’re stuck theorizing and thinking about future concepts for the next week. This season, like the last, was extremely long and players are ready to move on.

Traps have been woefully lacking in Chapter 2. We’ve seen the Spike Trap and the Launch Pad, and they barely existed at the same time. There was a brief overlap in Season 1, but Epic removed Spike Traps at the beginning of Season 2.

Most players want to see them return, but this concept doesn’t involve Spike Traps. Instead, Reddit user u/MrYeetFeet69 created three new ideas that will improve Reboot Vans, healing, and Upgrade Benches.

A trap that allows you to reboot teammates sounds like a fantastic idea. Warzone has introduced us to the world where you can revive a teammate without grabbing their card, and we like it. A trap like this one could allow you to reboot a teammate without a time limit.

A trap that works like a Campfire for shields has been a long-running request of Fortnite players, and something like this is a decent concept – albeit with adjusted rates.

The final concept of the upgrade trap is decent, as well. Upgrading and Sidegrading were interesting additions to Fortnite, but they seem underutilized at the moment. They need a revamp – similar to what happened to Vending Machines in Chapter 1 – and this concept could be the answer.

We need some variety and creativity in the Fortnite loot pool. These ideas may not make it into the game as-is, but a version of them could.
