Creative mode coming very soon to Fortnite

Published

on

YouTuber Lachlan has showcased a new Creative mode coming to Fortnite. This mode gives player near limitless possibilities to create mini games, training courses, maps, and so on.

Alongside many other creators, Lachlan was invited to Epic Games’ HQ to record footage of upcoming Fortnite content.

At the time of writing it is currently unknown why this footage was leaked ahead of its intended release as other creators have yet to release their footage. Epic Games has yet to officially announce the mode as well.

Lachlan claims that Creative Mode is set to release Tomorrow. However, it appears this footage has went live early so it is not yet known when exactly tomorrow is.

Lobby

Upon selecting Play, players are greeted with a Select A Server menu. Here the player can join a friend’s server or create their own server. Servers can hold up to 16 players.

Privacy options such as Invite Only, Friends, Friends of Friends, and so on are included for servers.

Spawn

Once spawned into a Creative server, players are placed in a hub-like area which contains rifts for Featured and Personal worlds. Featured worlds seem to be selected by Epic Games and will be to showcase unique modes, maps, and more.

 

Activating a Rift will greet the player with the ability to choose from 1 of 4 islands within their world. Saves are intended to be somewhat of a Save option so players can make progress then come back to an island at another time.

 

A Rift can be found toward the edge of the Island which allows the player to transport back to the Creative Hub.

Creative Mode

Islands come in varying shapes, sizes, and terrains. It is not yet known if these are customizable, nor is it known if they are preset or randomly generated.

 

The ability to no-clip (fly) is present once in-game. This allows players to quickly and easily navigate around the island without the need for resources.

 

Players are given a phone which allows them to edit the world and objects within the world. It seems the phone is nearly limits in terms of what it can interact with, even the concrete driveway can be edited to a player’s liking.

The phone has the ability to move, copy, and erase whatever it is selecting.

 

While Creative mode is practically limitless, there is a Memory limit which prevents the player from filling an Island to the point in which the game would crash. Different objects will use different amounts of memory.

The player is not expected to easily hit this limit, it is just in place as a safeguard to ensure a good player experience.

 

Island Settings can be found in the pause menu. Options include…

  • Game
    • Free For All
    • Deathmatch
    • Free Play
  • Teams
    • Free For All
    • Cooperative
  • Time Limit
    • None
    • 5 minutes
    • 10 minutes
    • 15 minutes
    • 20 minutes
  • Spawn Location
    • Spawn Pads
    • Team Spawn Pads
    • Sky
  • Starting Health
    • Full Health
  • Starting Shields
    • Empty Shields
  • Infinite Ammo
    • On
    • Off
  • Infinite Resources
    • On
    • Off
  • Pick Axe Building Damage
    • Default
    • Instant
  • Drop Items When Eliminated
    • On
    • Off
  • Fall Damage
    • On
    • Off
  • Gravity
    • Normal
  • Player Names & Location
    • Team Only
  • Respawn Height
    • Normal
  • Down But Not Out
    • Default
  • Island Edit Permission
    • Only Me
    • Everyone

Once your Island Settings are set you can then select Start Mini-Game. This will reset the players within the Island using the specified Settings.

Once the game has started players no longer have access to Creative options and are able to play the game legitimately.

Destruction caused once a game has started is not carried over to the Creative mode. This allows players to create their Islands and mini-games and reuse them without the need to set things up each time.

A Reset Island to Original State button can also be found in the Island Tools tab.

 

Depending on the Game Mode selected – once a mini-game has began, players can view the Game Stats scoreboard to see the current standings of all players.

For example, in Deathmatch, stats include Team, Eliminations, Deaths, and Assists.

Inventory

Opening the Inventory reveals multiple tabs where the player can select the building blocks they would like to use. Tabs include Prefabs, Devices, Weapons, Consumables, and Chests.

Prefabs contains pre-built structures from both in-game and Epic Games. Think of these as templates showing what is possible, or starting points for your larger builds. There are prefabs for obstacle courses, buildings, and props.

 

Equipping an item adds it to the player’s inventory. From there the player can select the item in the hot-bar, this will either grant the player a throwable which will spawn the item into the world upon impact, or the ability to directly place the item.

Props

Props which are spawned via throwable are not bound to the normal grid which building typically is. Props can be selected using the Phone and then placed or interacted with at any location.

While a prop is selected the player is granted the following abilities to use on the prop:

  • Copy
  • Push
  • Pull
  • Rotate Clockwise
  • Rotate Counterclockwise
  • Rotate Axis (Yaw)
  • Rotation Reset
  • Drops
  • Grid Snap

Grid Snapping includes a 16×16, 8×8, 4×4, and 2×2 grid to ensure the prop is placed exactly where it is wanted.

 

Obstacle Courses can be found in the prefabs tab of the Inventory. A multitude of different courses can be found for those who are not interested in building their own.

Individual pieces can also be selected from Obstacle Course prefabs using the Phone to allow for custom courses using the new items and building parts.

Traps

Multiple new Traps are available in Creative mode which are not present in Battle Royale.

The Respawn Pad allows players to set the point at which they will respawn after dying. Respawn Pads can be tweaked to only respawn a specific team.

 

Vehicle Spawn Pads allow the player to spawn Shopping Carts, Quadcrashers, Golf Carts, and so on. Upon destruction the vehicle is respawned at the pad.

 

Damage Traps are yet another new Trap which will knockback the player and deal 5 damage if the player collides with it.

 

Ice Blocks are similar to the existing Chiller Traps, however the effects do not last as long and they modify the terrain with an icy texture.

 

Speed Boosts are rather self-explanatory, when the player walks on to a Speed Boost it will send them in the direction it is facing. Speed Boosts can be configured with a low, medium, or high effect.

 

Scoreboards can be used to keep track of score in mini-games. Bouncing on either the left-most or right-most bounce pad will increment the score displayed on respective side by 1. Jumping on the middle bound pad will reset the score.

 

The Timer allows players to set a countdown for a specified amount of time. Once time is up a sound is played and the Timer displays 0:00. Time amounts stretch from 1 minute to 20 minutes. Time begins when the player jumps on the bound pad.

Weapons

The Weapons tab in the Inventory allows the player to equip any rarity of any weapon in the game. Vaulted weapons are not included at this time.

 

Ammo, grenades, healing, and utility items can be found in the Consumables tab of the Inventory. As is the case with the Weapons tab, vaulted items are not included.

Chests

Players are given the ability to create Chests with any loot of their choosing which can be placed in any position. It is not known at this time what the limit is for the amount of items in a Chest is.

Items are added to the Chest via the previous Inventory tabs. The player then has the option to choose whether they want to create a Chest or a Llama.

Chests and Llamas are susceptible to the same tweaks that other objects are by using the phone.

 

It is not yet known when Creative Mode will be releasing. Lachlan mentioned “tomorrow” multiple times, but this footage was not meant to go live yet. It’s likely we’ll see a release in patch v7.0 and an announcement at The Game Awards.

How to get the Dish Destroyer pickaxe in Fortnite Season 3

Another exclusive pickaxe arrives to Fortnite in Season 3 and it sure looks quite different. Here’s how you can get it.

Dish Destroyer Pickaxe in Fortnite

The Dish Destroyer pickaxe is another free cosmetic you can get in Chapter 3 Season 3 if you haven’t already. Here’s how to get the pickaxe right into your locker.

Fortnite players sure love freebies that the developers give them away each season. From a free Refer-A-Friend skin to a slurpy back bling that you can get upon completing quests, players have faithfully completed every task that Epic has asked them to claim the free reward.

However, over the course of several seasons now, getting these freebies is starting to feel too much work to some players. Epic continues to add away free content, but players are asked to put in the work in order to claim these rewards.

This time around, there’s a new item on the block, The Dish Destroyer Pickaxe, which you can get in Fortnite now by doing a few simple steps. Here’s how you can get it in Season 3.

Get the Dish Destroyer Pickaxe in Fortnite now

Nvidia’s cloud gaming platform GeForce Now was launched earlier this year when players were able to stream Fortnite on any device if they were a member of the service. This also allowed iOS users to stream the game on their phones despite the Apple vs. Epic lawsuit.

In a recent tweet, Nvidia announced that Fortnite players will be able to redeem a free Dish Destroyer Pickaxe if they stream Fortnite on their GeForce Now enabled devices until August 4, 2022. Players who are members of the exclusive service will only be able to redeem this for free in-game.

However, in another announcement, Epic told its player base that the pickaxe is not exclusive to GeForce Now but will also be available in the Item Shop at a later date. This means that those who aren’t able to redeem the free pickaxe using their GeForce Now memberships will have a chance to buy it using V-Bucks in the Item Shop.

The cost of the pickaxe has not been revealed as of yet as players believe that it will be released once the limited window of August 4 for GeForce Now members have expired. As soon as we get any news on its Item Shop release, we’ll be sure to update this article.


GeForce Now players have had the perks of free rewards ever since the service allowed players to experience the thrill of Fortnite anywhere on their devices. Falling in line is XCloud’s gaming service which has become extremely popular amongst Xbox players.

Fortnite players call on Epic Games to fix Loot Chests bug in Season 3

As the latest Fortnite Season 3 update brought players a No Sweat Summer, it left a weird bug in the game where players are getting empty loot chests. Here’s the latest on that.

Loot Chests in Fortnite

Fortnite players have finally given up on the game due to its never-ending glitches and bugs that affect their overall gameplay experience. The latest glitch in the game is teleporting chest loot to a different location, and it’s getting pretty annoying for players.

Player feedback is one of the many things Epic takes very seriously that it aims to fix in every major weekly update or minor hotfixes from time to time. Often there are times when these bugs can get pretty annoying as they affect the overall gameplay experience for the player.

Fortnite players have seen bugs ranging from being stuck under the map or taking fall damage after jumping off a launch pad. From pros to content creators, each one of them took to social media to call on the developers to “fix the game”.

However, a recent update, v21.30, left a bug that has tested the patience of every Fortnite player active this season – potentially the most annoying Fortnite bug of all time. Here’s everything we know about it so far.

Fortnite bug teleports chests loots to other locations

A strange Fortnite bug that is going viral right now on social media is the Loot Chests bug. It all began when Epic added the update v21.30 and introduced players to this year’s summer event, No Sweat Summer.

The update also saw the addition of Prime Shotgun which is considered to be the best shotgun in Chapter 3. While all the additions are fascinating and exciting to the players, the bug the update left in the game is still haunting players who are failing to win a game like they used to.

The bug, as shown in the clip above, teleports the chest loot to a nearby location outside if a player opens a chest box inside a building. This is pretty annoying as it doesn’t let the player farm loot fast as they usually would while landing on a hot drop.

Players have already started uploading their clips of the loot chest bug and are calling out the game to come out and fix this issue. This bug also creates double the work for those players who like to play a fast-paced Battle Royale match.

Joining in the conversation are a few FNCS players who feel that this bug might cost them several games where they would end up losing on a major competitive level. The entire community has joined hands together to ask the developers to fix the game at the earliest.

While Fortnite has not addressed this issue on their social media handles or on the Trello board could also mean that players in higher ping regions might be the only ones experiencing the bug. However, the player base is still keeping their hopes high to get these issues fixed as soon as possible.


As bugs and glitches continue to add to several issues Fortnite is filled with, events like No Sweat Summer keep the community excited for more in-game content and freebies that they can get. The challenges for No Sweat Summer are live in-game now and players can redeem their share of rewards upon completing them.

Fortnite introduces the new Prime Shotgun in update v21.30

Prime Shotgun is the latest game breaking weapon that has been added to Fortnite in v21.30. Here’s all about the new shotgun.

Prime Shotgun in Fortnite

Prime Shotgun is another addition to Fortnite this season in terms of weaponry that has been added to the game. Here is all about the latest shotgun that was introduced in v21.30 and what players think of it.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has been a joyride for both OG and new players alike. The new mechanics, the reality bloom spreading everywhere, and the addition of new weapons to the game have kept the community satisfied so far.

However, during the beginning of Chapter 3, the shotgun meta was deemed to be the worst shotguns the game had added to the game. The Striker Pump, Ranger, and Auto Shotguns were weapons that players had deemed incompetent to other shotguns in Fortnite.

Much so, even the newly released Two Shot Shotgun couldn’t impress the players with its faster fire rate and damage. So, Epic decided to throw a new shotgun into the mix to seek player reactions and improve the messed-up shotguns in-game.

Prime Shotgun is the new community favorite shotgun in Fortnite

Prime Shotgun was added in the latest update v21.30 to the unvaulted weapons arsenal in Fortnite. The shotguns were the second one introduced to the player base apart from the Two-Shot shotgun.

It holds 4 bullets in a clip and promises heavy damage on the first shot fired from a fully loaded clip. The 3 shots that follow inflict lower damage than that of the first one.

When a player reloads the shotgun, 3 blue dots appear on the gun with the red dot being the first shot being loaded. This brings back the memories of the infamous “One Shot Meta” from the OG days when the community used to perform using a Pump Shotgun.

Pros like NickEh30 sang high praise of the Prime Shotgun as the weapon contains elements of the OG pump in terms of range, accuracy, and firepower. Other pros like SypherPK & Ninja also commented their thoughts on the gun which were highly positive.

With the recent Fortnite update, leaks have also been floating around about the No Sweat Summer and Ice Cream cone consumables that the player base can see in-game in the coming days. However, an official announcement has been made about the same on the official blog website of Fortnite.
