One data-driven Fortnite player has revealed the drop rate of fish in Fortnite Ice Boxes. Take a look at your chances of getting a Slurpfish.

Ice Boxes were introduced with the first Winterfest update as the map started to freeze. We saw a reworked Snowman along with some fan-favorite weapons that could stick around past January 7.

The Ice Box has a chance to drop snowmen, Snowball Launchers, fish, and coal. Apart from the Snowball Launchers for easy damage, most players are hunting for fish when they open Ice Boxes.

One player ran the numbers on Ice Boxes and the fish that come with them. @Fadefromthewrld on Twitter opened 100 Ice Boxes and found that over half of them dropped Small Fry fish. This is a no-brainer, but the surprising statistic is that you have a nearly equal chance to grab a Slurpfish or Flopper.

These numbers weren’t found in the game files, so they probably aren’t exact. Still, it’s helpful to get a rough estimate of the Ice Box loot table.

We’re hoping that this information doesn’t come as too little too late. There is a presumed Fortnite update on January 7, which will remove the Winterfest update and lightsabers from the game. It’s unclear whether or not Ice Boxes will stick around for good.

The Fortnite Ice Boxes were a welcome addition to the game. They’re a fantastic way to gain some free fish, spawning frequently in areas around Dirty Docks and Weeping Woods.

Unfortunately, the Ice Boxes also hold coal, Snowball Launches, and Snowmen – all of which are likely leaving with tomorrow’s update. We’ll have to wait and see if the Ice Boxes stay in Fortnite, as is the case with the Silenced AR and Hunting Rifle.

What was your favorite part of the Fortnite Winterfest update? Let us know in the comments.

XP Coins have returned to Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to find all of them as of Season 5 Week 7.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!

How to disable pre-edits in Fortnite

After over a year of fan requests, Epic have added a ‘disable pre-edit’ option to Fortnite. Here’s where you can find it.

Published

In v15.20, Epic Games added a much-requested setting to Fortnite: ‘disable pre-edits.’ Here’s how it works and how to select it.

Finally, after years of Reddit threads, Twitter posts, and pro players begging, Epic added a ‘disable pre-edit’ setting to Fortnite.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new setting, including how it works and where to find it.

What does ‘pre-editing’ mean?

Pre-editing refers to the ability to edit a structure before placing it. The most popular use of pre-edits throughout Fortnite history was a cone/ramp edit when controller players had to use Combat Pro.

Now, however, very few players use pre-edits. Instead, pre-edits offer an obstacle, as they’re almost always completed by mistake. Of course, there are still some niche applications for pre-edits, but most players wanted Epic to add an option to disable these edits.

How to disable pre-edits

You can find the new option under the settings tab (cog wheel) in the start menu. Scroll down to the “Building” section, and you’ll see four options. One of them is the new “Disable Pre-Edit Option.”

If you turn this off, you’ll no longer be able to edit structures before placing them – good news for the bulk of the Fortnite community.

If may have taken Epic years to finally add this option, but it’s finally here. Next stop, an FoV slider!
