Does Fortnite need to add new options for wall edits?

Published

on

Wall editing is one of the most crucial parts of high-level Fortnite. 

How people edit walls in crunch situations can often be the difference between survival and death.

Right now you can edit a wall into a wide variety of different shapes. Windows can be placed in the middle row to give players a peek.

Doors can be placed on the bottoms, usually to fake out opponents. Other than that players can edit diagonals, half walls, and arches.

Still, there are some other edit options that aren’t available but may make sense for Fortnite to add.

Reddit user Fedolicious posted three new possible edits that could something unique to the game. Below, I’ll talk about what situations those edits could be used in.

Starting with the top. The double door is really interesting because it inherently confuses your opponent. Right now, the two options after editing a door are going through it or going over it.

By adding another option most pros would default to this design because it immediately forces your opponent to consider one more option.

The L wall is reminiscent of old Call of Duty. Those games loved to have a semi-crumbling wall that players could duck behind and snipe from. This wall could work in the same way and may be the preferred choice of someone sniping from the high ground. The rounded wall would obscure a player better than the clean diagonal.

The top wall is a bit interesting. For a while every wall design had to touch the floor but the arch changed that. Still it would look a bit weird to just have a floating top of a wall and I can’t think of a situation where it would be practiculary useful.

What do you think? Would you use any of these wall designs?

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.

PS5 Fortnite trailer fuels custom kill animation concept

Could customizeable elimination animations be coming in Fortnite Season 5?

Published

Yesterday, September 16, Sony revealed the new PlayStation 5 along with some games that will be coming to the next-gen console. The company also used Fortnite as one of their returning games, showing players the visual enhancements that will come with the PS5.

Some of these improvements may be exclusive to the new PlayStation, but the trailer also showed us a handful of changes that will likely apply to all platforms – not just the PS5.

We touched on a lot of these changes in an article, yesterday, but fans have taken the speculation a step further since the trailer came out. Specifically, Fortnite players zeroed-in on the changed elimination animation that you see in the trailer.

This, along with the update Chug Jug and flame effects, was the central focus of the trailer for a lot of viewers. Clearly, Epic are planning on changing the elimination animations in the future.

Some players are suggesting that this change could point to Epic adding a customizable elimination animation for players.

It would make sense for Epic to add something like this. The more cosmetic options they have, the more money-making opportunities there are. Imagine if the Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass contained unique kill animations for the first time. Who wouldn’t buy that?

Games like Valorant already have a variation of this feature. Another Epic Games title, Rocket League, has its own version of this as well: customizeable goal animations. This concept is far from confirmed, but it’s a realistic addition for which we can hope.

Fortnite concept brings a much-needed adjustment to Marauders

Marauders are far too menacing in Fortnite Solos and Duos. This concept could present a fix for this problem.

Published

Marauders might be the single worst part of Fortnite Season 3. They were seemingly added to replace the Henchmen that were in the old hideouts as well as give players something to do during the constant mind-game lull.

These NPC enemies carry Stink Grenades, Shotguns, ARs, Hunting Rifles, and RPGs. They can be a decent source of loot if you need it but are be devastating if you don’t. There are countless clips of players getting eliminated by rogue Marauders who third-party a fight. This is annoying in public matches and downright broken in competitive games. Here’s a clip of a player in Champion League who got killed by a Marauder while pushing an enemy. This shouldn’t happen.

Marauders will undoubtedly have something to do with the Season 3 plot and are likely here for the duration of the season. They don’t belong in competitive modes, but that’s a topic for a separate article. In the meantime, it’s about how we manage them while they’re in the game.

Most players avoid Marauders at all costs – especially in solo mode. They’re not worth the material, shield, and ammo cost required to take them out. While you’re fighting them and protecting yourself, you’re extremely vulnerable to being eliminated by another player.

Reddit user u/worrywirt had an idea that could make Marauders a lot more manageable. The concept is simple: scale the number of Marauders that spawn by each game mode. Epic already do this with the health of Supply Drops, so why not do it with Marauder mobs?

Marauders would still have the ability to eliminate unsuspecting players and ruin tournament games, but having two to three spawn in a group would be a lot easier to manage – especially if Epic keep them for the Season 3 FNCS competition.

Ideally, Epic would remove Marauders from all competitive modes, but they’re almost certainly staying in public matches. A concept like this one could be the most that we can hope for.
