A Fortnite player ate a PlayStation gift card because Epic added a “no-build zone.”

Published

We have officially entered wtf is happening territory in the Fortnite community.

The lack of a change to the mech was certainly annoying but then Epic doubled-down by actually removing the ability to build in one section of the map.

This is an unprecedented move as it was building that really separated Fortnite from the rest of the Battle Royale genre back when the game first became popular.

Now back then, building was pretty rudimentary compared to what it is now, but that was still one of the key mechanics of Fortnite. At the World Cup, it was the best builders who were able to prove successful over and over during the event.

So for Epic to create an area that doesn’t allow building or harvesting, it created quite the stir. First and foremost was the person who commented a month ago and said that if Epic ever did add a no-building zone, he would eat a PlayStation gift card.

Well they did, so he did. Here’s the result:

If Fortnite ever does eventually die, this video will belong on the tombstone. Who even thinks to do something like this?

Personally, my favorite part is that he took a bite of the card before he began filming. Like he just dove right into that thing like he hadn’t had a meal all day.

Then he realizes he should probably film himself eating plastic so he can prove he followed through on the bet.

While his reaction is absolutely the most memorable, plenty of other members of the Fortnite community were vocal about their dislike for the new anti-building feature:

What to expect when cars enter Fortnite

Cars are coming to Fortnite on August 5. Here’s how they’ll work.

Published

Finally, the long wait is over. Cars are coming to Fortnite on August 5. Epic announced their release in a series of tweets on August 3 and 4, hyping up the community for what might be the most anticipated release of Fortnite Chapter 2.

Since the community has been waiting for cars for so long, data miners have been giving players what they want in the way of leaks as to how these cars will perform. For instance, we know that there will be four different types of cars in the game. Epic are releasing the names of these cars as promotion for their release, but FortTory gave us the stats back in June.

As many players already know, you’ll need to refuel the cars while you drive around. You can already see the gas station icons scattered around the map while using a boat or Choppa – the former is disabled at the time of writing, although it had been visible for weeks.

We also know a bit about the mechanics of cars. You will, reportedly, be able to gain metal by using the tire skid mechanic to run into things. The maximum speed will likely depend on the car, but will, reportedly, top-out at 45 mph.

Predictably, cars will damage players when they explode. The numbers in the game files were 200 damage to a player – enough to one-shot. This could be changed when the cars come out, however.

According to some of the additional leaks, the number of cars that spawn around the map will vary from game to game. There will be at least one on the map at all times and a maximum of 10.

Again, this could change and may have been a placeholder, as this particular piece of information comes from a couple of months ago when cars were first found in the game files.

Of course, all of this is subject to change. We’ll know everything for sure when the new patch releases tomorrow, August 5. We’ll have you covered with everything you need to know about cars when they make their way into Fortnite, so stay tuned!

When will the Fortnite Season 3 map stop draining?

When will the great flood end? When will the Fortnite Season 3 map reach its final stage? When will Atlantis be revealed?

Published

When Fortnite Season 3 began, the bulk of the map was underwater. That was the primary gimmick of the season, along with Aquaman, the new locations, and new bosses. Overall, it was a unique idea that we’ve never seen in Fortnite before. Many fans were worried about what this would mean for the game, but it ended up being pretty fun.

Since then, the map has gone through several drying-out periods – the most recent of which was today, July 30. We’ve seen POIs such as Dirty Docks, Pleasant Park, Sweaty Sands, and Craggy Cliffs lose all of their water and return to how they were during Season 2 – with some slight adjustments.

Craggy Cliffs in Fortnite

At the time of writing, Season 3 is slated to end on August 27 – about one month from today. We may see the season extended for a week or two, but all players are hoping that we don’t have another Chapter 2 Seasons 1 and 2 on our hands.

With so much time left on the clock, many fans are wondering: when will the Season 3 map reach its final stage? Well, according to the information that we have now, the water will reach its final level on August 1. This is also, reportedly, when the ‘Ruins’ POI (assumed to be Atlantis) will enter the game.

We can assume, then, that we’ll be playing on this version of the map for the final month of the season. Will cars enter the game on August 1? We can only hope – although the message from No Sweat Insurance would suggest otherwise.

Hopefully, Epic have something up their sleeves for the final month of the season. With most players nearing level 100 at this point, we’ll need something new to fill our time. We’re holding out hope that cars are coming to Fortnite sooner rather than later.

Fortnite visual glitch points to Atlantis POI layout

Putting your settings on ‘low’ shows all of the tiles that the Fortnite Atlantis POI will affect.

Published

on

When many players first saw the Fortnite Season 3 map, they were excited at the concept of unveiling new POIs over time. As the water levels have continued to go down, however, we learned that nearly all of the underwater POIs are the same as we left them. Sure, Slurpy Swamp and Dirty Docks might look a bit messy, but they’re inherently the same as they were in Season 2.

The only holdout that we have is the ‘Ruins’ POI, which most fans assume to be Atlantis – Aquaman’s home. Since we only have three bosses on the Fortnite map, many players think that Aquaman will be an NPC boss when Atlantis comes to Fortnite – but that’s only speculation.

On July 27, Epic made their periodic changes to the map. The water levels went down, which revealed more of the older POIs that were underwater for the first half of the season. There weren’t many substantial changes with this update, but there’s something going on at the giant whirlpool in the northwest of the map.

Most fans already had this area pegged for Atlantis when the location was first leaked. It seems to be closer than ever, with the inhabitants carving out their own little slice of the Fortnite island.

Although this map location represents where Atlantis will be, there’s another piece of evidence that hints towards the layout of Atlantis. Do you remember the Aquaman trailer? It showed him and his Fishstick army in front of a wall of water. Fans speculated as to whether or not this was a reference to Atlantis or to the Season 2 storm. Well, a new visual glitch gives strong hints that the wall of water will be in the game.

When you play Fortnite with your settings on Low, an outline around the Whirlpool appears. This, likely, shows the squares that the wall of water will affect. Basically, it’s around the existing whirlpool.

Atlantis will be the biggest addition to Fortnite Season 3 when it eventually comes out. A wall of water surrounding the location would be awesome, and set it apart from all of the other Chapter 2 locations that we’ve seen. We’re excited to see how it works when it finally enters the game.
