Fortnite item suggestion improves on the Bandage Bazooka

One Fortnite fan has suggested a legendary variant of the Bandage Bazooka. This suggestion could drastically increase the number of healing items we have.

Fortnite Chapter 2 is an overwhelming success by almost all accounts. Sure, the season is starting to get a tad stale, but we should be expecting a new one once the holidays are over.

There are a few areas upon which Epic could improve, though. They have been getting a lot of flack for the lack of shields in Fortnite – something that didn’t seem to be an issue when Chapter 2 first launched.

Epic removed Slurps, Chug Jugs, and Chug Splashes in Fortnite Chapter 2, leaving only small and big pots. You can fish for Slurpfish as well, but these are relatively rare and difficult to snag if you don’t have a Harpoon Gun.

Somewhere along the way – probably when they released the aforementioned Harpoon Gun – Epic seems to limit the number of shield pots that spawn around the map. We can’t prove this, but it sure feels as though there are fewer shields out there.

Will Epic bring back the old healing items? We can’t be sure. It’s much more likely that they bring back mobility items before additional shields. After all, fishing is an adequate way to gain health and shields.

u/Vault_Tec_CEO posted a suggestion to Reddit that would add a small wrinkle to the current state of healing in Fortnite. He introduced the Legendary Bandage Bazooka, which would shoot Chug Splashes instead of Bandages.

Chug Splashes might have been the most beloved healing item of all time. Bringing them back in the Bandage Bazooka would make the item a must-carry, especially in competitive modes.

This item might be a bit overpowered to start, but Epic could fool around with the charge time and rarity to balance it out. I think this is a brilliant concept and would love to see the Legendary Bandage Bazooka in Fortnite

Lazy Lake Floating Ring locations for Fortnite Week 3 challenges

How to collect floating rings at Lazy Lake for the Season 3 Week 3 challenges.

The Fortnite Season 3 Week 3 challenges are here, which means we’re getting closer and closer to unlocking the second half of the Season 3 Battle Pass. Most of the challenges have been relatively easy this season, with only one weekly challenge requiring us to search in a particular area.

Last week we were looking around The Yacht. This week we’re venturing across the map over to Lazy Lake, where we’ll need to collect floating rings.

These four rings are scattered around Lazy Lake, making it difficult to complete this challenge in one shot – at least, if you’re doing it in a regular Battle Royale match.

As always, we recommend opting for Team Rumble. It makes things easier, and you may even be able to finish your eliminations challenge from last week if you haven’t already. Here’s a map of all of the Floating Ring locations at Lazy Lake:

The most obvious ring is located next to the gas station. You should be able to jump on an umbrella to grab it. After that, make your way to the intersection and look on top of the tree. The third ring is in the street at the entrance to Lazy, and the final ring is in between the towers of the No Sweat Insurance building.

Here’s a video from HarryNinetyFour that shows you exactly where you’ll need to visit.

You can take a look at the full list of challenges here, but the rest of them are easy enough to complete on your own. You may be sitting in the cornfield at Frenzy for a while, but that comes with the territory.

Lazy Lake fireworks location for Fortnite Captain America challenge

Published

on

When the Fortnite v13.20 patch released, Epic revealed that they’d be bringing a special hero to the Item Shop for the 4th of July. That hero was later revealed to be none other than Captain America – one of the core Avengers who we never saw during the initial Marvel crossover events.

Captain America is, reportedly, set to hit the Item Shop within the next rotation. He should be available when the Item Shop resets at 8 PM EST on July 2. We’re only hours away from having Cap in our locker, and he’ll probably be one of the most popular skins for the next week.

As you can see, there have already been plenty of official teasers for Captain America, but one of them went under the radar. When the Week 3 Challenges went live, Epic added a daily challenge that requires you to light fireworks around Lazy Lake. These fireworks explode to show the Captain America shield.

There are six firework locations surrounding this POI, but you only need five to complete the challenge. You can easily finish this challenge in a single game of Team Rumble once you know where to look. Here are all of the firework locations.

This challenge rewards players with 14,000 XP as it’s one of the golden daily challenges rather than a weekly challenge. That isn’t a ton of experience, but it’s a healthy reward for a challenge that will only take a few minuted to complete. Now, all that’s left is to see how the new Fortnite Captain America skin looks!

This concept brings grilling to Fortnite in time for summer

This thematic addition to Fortnite Season 3 is perfect for Summer Splash.

Published

Fortnite Season 3 has put a new emphasis on food. Vegetable boxes spawn all across the map while players farm for cabbage and corn as a new way to heal. Most players are fans of this change. The more healing items in the game, the better.

Why stop there? Why not allow us to cook our food for additional HP? Well, one Fortnite player made a concept that allows us to do just that. Reddit user u/MapleSmoothie created a Hot Dog concept. You can find them in fridges and eat them raw, or grill them for greater healing power.

This concept, as its creator points out, would be a perfect addition to the Summer Splash event. Grilling and summertime go hand in hand, and Epic even have an existing emote to correspond with the mechanic.

We don’t need to stop with hot dogs, either. Epic could allow us to grill corn and add other meats like burgers and sausages. Some of them could even grant shields, allowing you to carry some food versions of Minis and Big Pots.

It’s probably too late for Epic to add this to Season 3. There’s a chance that we could see it next year, however. Epic have always welcomed community concepts with game mechanics and skins. This one would be a small, yet thematic addition that could bring a new element into the game.
