We love to browse through social media throughout the week and see all of the wonderful fan creations that are posted, so we decided to highlight our three favorites from April 29 to May 5!
Reddit is one of the most popular places to find Fortnite concepts, especially within the FortniteBR subreddit.
Throughout the week of April 29 and April 5, we picked out favorite fan concepts that range from artistic recreations to brand new skin ideas.
Thanks to everybody who submitted their art!
Volcanic Eruption Animated Loading Screen
Fans waited anxiously as the time at Loot Lake counted down, seemingly hinting at a huge in-game event on May 4.
On May 4 players were witness to the Unvaulting event which saw the return of the Drum Gun, and the destruction of three towns in Fortnite.
While we wait for the real eruption, here’s my own version of it, as an animated loading screen or menu entry from FortNiteBR
User Feralidragon on the FortniteBR subreddit submitted their animated loading screen for Fortnite which would certainly be an upgrade to what we have now.
This load screen is black and grey as volcanic ash rains down on the Earth as the volcano spews fire and lightning.
Feralidragon’s screen would certainly pay respect to Epic for all the work they do for Fortnite and the community.
Froggy Skin Set Concept
We often see skins that are inspired by other popular works of animation, like My Hero Academia.
This concept by @fortnite_natto is not only creative, but she took the time to add different subtleties to the skin which makes it so much better.
Even though @fortnite_natto didn’t name the skin concept, we took it upon ourselves to title it the “Froggy skin set” due to the character’s huge frog-like eyes on top of her hood.
The pickaxe and glider are modeled after huge leafs, where frogs typically like to hang out.
“RIP Dusty Depot” fan drawing
One of our favorite original drop spots in Fortnite was Dusty Depot, which was changes to Dusty Divot on May 1, 2018, with the meteor crash.
Even though the location has been forever changed, fans still love to show their continued support for their favorite spots in Fortnite.
User FreeMyBoiMineta shows his hand drawing of the OG Dusty Depot with “May 1st, 2018 THE END”.
We often show off animated and rendered concepts, but once in a while, we like to display other works of art.
If you have any hand drawing, concept ideas, or fan creation in general – Feel free to send them to us on Twitter at @FortniteINTEL!
Fortnite Champion Series Chapter 3 Season 3 start date and prize pool revealed
Fortnite has announced the Champion Series (FNCS) for Chapter 3 Season 3 in which pros worldwide will compete for 3 million dollars.
The Fortnite Champion Series is easily the most anticipated competitive event every season. In Chapter 3 Season 3, the likes of Bugha, Clix, and Arkhram, among others, will battle it out for a prize pool of 3 million dollars.
Epic Games has finally announced the FNCS for Chapter 3 Season 3. This time around, the logo seems to have a tropical theme that matches the ‘Vibin’ season. The meta has also changed significantly, and it will be interesting to see how some of the most talented esports athletes have adapted to it.
Everything to know about Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) Chapter 3 Season 3
Fortnite Champion Series for Chapter 3 Season 3 will begin on July 6 with 3 Qualifier rounds. The top five teams (Duos) from each round will directly advance to the FNCS Finals.
The qualifiers will take place till July 18 and the Semi-Finals will begin on July 21. As per Epic Games, the key to reaching the finals is Victory Royales and consistency. In the three Semi-Finals sessions, 6 Victory Royale winners and the top six consistent teams will move ahead.
The Finals will take place between August 12-14. There are two ways for a team to win the Fortnite Champion Series in Chapter 3 Season 3:
- The first team to get three Victory Royales and earn 475 points will be declared the FNCS champion. This is called the Match Point.
- If no team is able to acquire a Match Point at the end of 12 Finals matches, the duo with the highest points will win.
Chapter 3 Season 3 FNCS prize pool distribution
The prize pool for the Chapter 3 Season 3 FNCS is a whopping $3 million. However, it will be divided across several regions:
- EU: $1,350,000
- NAE: $690,000
- BR: $240,000
- NAW: $240,000
- ASIA: $240,000
- ME: $120,000
- OCE: $120,000
The prize pool is different for each region, primarily because of Fortnite’s prominence there. It is evident that the viewership numbers in Europe are much higher than in the Middle East and Oceania.
It is worth noting that fans should be able to unlock some free cosmetics by watching the matches. New FNCS-themed cosmetics also arrive in the Item Shop.
All in all, it is safe to assume that the Fortnite Champion Series for Chapter 3 Season 3 will be more exciting than ever. A ton of new features and weapons have arrived recently, and even map changes have been quite frequent.
Football star Mesut Ozil might turn pro in Fortnite following retirement
Based on his agent’s statements, it won’t be a surprise if we soon find former Arsenal player Mesut Ozil ‘Vibin’ as a Fortnite pro.
After having a glorious run in Real Madrid, Arsenal, and Schalke 04, Mesut Ozil joined Fenerbahçe S.K. Reports claim that the footballer might take up esports as a career after retirement.
Mesut Ozil has nothing left to prove in the world of Football. He’s won several trophies over the years and is easily one of the best playmakers in the history of the sport. Ozil recently unfollowed Fenerbahce on his social media and seems to be all set for retirement.
The footballer has always been an avid gamer, and his manager claims that Ozil has the potential to become a Fortnite pro.
Mesut Ozil has a long history of playing Fortnite
Ozil’s admiration for Fortnite has never been a secret. He’s been streaming the game on Twitch for years and it has even been a matter of controversy on several occasions.
Back in 2020, fans of Arsenal accused Fortnite of causing Ozil’s back injury. They claimed that playing the battle royale title continuously with a bad posture affected his health.
In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Ozil’s manager stated:
“He will go more into esports, and maybe become an esports athlete. He’s really good at Fortnite, and I think one day I wouldn’t be surprised if he is competing”
The former Arsenal midfielder already owns an esports organization that competes in Fortnite and FIFA. He’s definitely had success as a streamer, but it is too early to assume if this will be the case with his esports career as well.
Several sports icons like David Beckham, Michael Jordan, Ronaldo, and Shaq have invested in Esports. It is evident that the industry is growing at an unprecedented rate and now is the perfect time to capitalize on it.
How to jump off of a diving board in Fortnite Season 3
A Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 3 challenge requires players to jump off of a diving board and here’s a quick guide to completing it.
Fortnite players must search for a diving board and jump off of it this week. This will complete one of the latest Week 3 challenges and provide them with 15,000 XP.
Quests and challenges have always been the most reliable source of XP for Fortnite players. The developers release three Daily Quests every day and seven Weekly Quests every week.
Weekly quests for Week 3 of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 have arrived, and here’s a guide to completing the one based on jumping off a diving board.
Where to find Diving Boards in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
To complete the Weekly quest, players first need to find one Diving Board. It is located near Rocky Reels and the exact location is marked (blue marker) in the image below:
The diving board is placed on the top of a massive rock in the desert region south of Rocky Reels. It basically gives players a small push and they can dive into the river flowing underneath.
The quest requires you to jump off of a diving board three times, and they don’t need to be unique. This means that the challenge can be completed by jumping off of the aforementioned board repeatedly.
How to reach the diving board in Fortnite Season 3
Another thing to note is the accessibility of the diving board. There’s no way to reach the top of the massive boulder in Zero Build modes owing to the lack of ziplines. Jumping while sprinting might help but it is better to take on this challenge in modes with building enabled.
Obviously, players can directly land at the diving board near Rocky Reels in Zero Build modes but this will only allow them to jump off of it once.
All in all, completing the weekly challenge will grant players 15,000 XP. Seven new quests have been added this week and there will be an additional bonus for completing them. This implies that the total XP output will be over 200,000 which is equivalent to almost three levels in the Battle Pass.
