A fan posted a suggestion to the Fortnite BR subreddit with a new looting system method that could change up the way weapons and items are equipped.
All players in Fortnite have five inventory slots that they can use to fill with weapons or healing items, however, as soon as a weapon is picked up it is immediately put into the first open inventory slot.
Players often prefer to have a slot for each weapon, for instance, an assault rifle in slot one, a shotgun in slot two, or whatever the player desires – but players need to manually arrange their inventory.
A suggestion from Sasseries would solve this problem, but allowing players to directly swap with a weapon they are holding or a weapon on the ground.
Epic Games’ Eric Williamson posted on the thread and said that the suggestion was intriguing and that they will be investigating.
This is exciting news for Fortnite fans as the inventory has remained the same since the game released in 2017.
Epic Games is always adding new items and updates to Fortnite, so maybe the fan submission might be the right push for an inventory revamp.
Would you like to see a new inventory system, or do you like the system as it is?
