Weapon Upgrade Benches in Fortnite have been extremely useful in Chapter 2, but they could get even better by giving players an option to upgrade their pots.
Epic Games changed up the formula with benches scattered throughout the new map which lets players upgrade one of their weapons at the cost of materials. While the feature has its situational uses, it can come in the clutch when needed most.
But ever the creative fanbase, the Fortnite community have devised a simple way for the devs to give the Upgrade Benches a major enhancement in regards to the defensive capabilities it could allow players.
In a Reddit post, ‘IAM-ARMANDO’ put out a suggestion to make Mini Shield Potions upgradeable to Big Shield Pots by expanding the Upgrade Benches utility.
“Can we be able to upgrade Mini Shields to Shield Pots,” they said. “Sometimes when I’m running duos with my friend we have a lot of Minis and this would be nice to get to that 100-100 HP.”
The player hinted at one of the most annoying situations in the late game, or any part of a match, where looting leaves a player with a ton of Minis which only allows a player to heal up until the 50 Shield Point cap.
Regular Shield Potions, however, lets players push past that 50 cap to get a full blue bar of 100 Shield Points.
In their mockup, it would take six Minis plus 150 wood, 150 brick, 150 metal to make three Big Pots on the bench.
This would be incredibly useful since after a few fights won, players can routinely have an excess of Minis and mats but still be stuck at only 50 Shield since not a lot of people can find Big Pots as a game progresses.
The idea has been extremely well received by the Fortnite community, as it seems more than a few people have found themselves in desperate need for a way to get Shield Potions throughout their games.
So far players have been liking the big changes in Fortnite Chapter 2, and this would definitely be another step to further improve the game.
The Fortnite rivalry between Tfue and Ninja continues as they face each other in Season 3
After taking long breaks from Fortnite, both Tfue and Ninja are back in Chapter 3. Here’s how their latest in-game encounter went.
Fans worldwide always appreciate it when the likes of Ninja and Tfue face other, especially in Fortnite. The game seems to have caught a second wind in Chapter 3 as the biggest streamers are back at playing it.
It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that Tfue and Ninja are two of the most popular Fortnite streamers ever. Despite quitting the game temporarily, they’re still associated with it.
It is no surprise that Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins are also two of the most skilled players in history. Accordingly, it is invariably nerve-wracking when they take on each other in multiplayer titles.
Ninja finally takes revenge against Tfue in Fortnite
Even though Ninja has thrashed countless Fortnite players over the years, he hasn’t been equally dominant against Tfue. So much so that the Turner has defeated him five times in their seven encounters so far.
However, Ninja and Tfue found each other in Greasy Grove during a Solos match recently. Considering their experience and expertise, it is natural for them to be placed in a lobby together.
Ninja entered the location on a Wolf while Tfue was already there looting. Turner was low on health with just 12 HP, 50 Shield, and 50 Overshield. On the flip side, Blevins was maxed out on shields as well as health.
True to his nature, Tfue didn’t waste a second and instantly took shots when he spotted Ninja. This could have been a wise decision against any other player, but Blevins was quick enough to take cover and land three consecutive shots on Tfue which led to the latter getting out of the game.
Soon after, Ninja’s viewers informed the streamer that he just eliminated Tfue. He went back to confirm the same and said, “Oh my god! that was him. Another one dude! Geeg”

While the streamers must have moved on from the incident already, it was undoubtedly special for the fans. The informal rivalry began in 2018, and it is always to delight to see the veterans enjoying Fortnite.
Tfue is still some steps ahead of Ninja when it comes to winning 1v1s. However, their encounters have become more common than ever in Chapter 3, and we might see Ninja bouncing back soon.
Fortnite v21.20 update delayed by a day and here’s why
The Fortnite community was desperately waiting for the v21.20 update. However, it won’t arrive on July 5, 2022 as there’s an unexpected delay.
Amidst the community’s sky-scraping expectations, Fortnite has delayed the v21.20 update. From its new release date to early patch notes, here’s everything we know about the upcoming patch so far.
To say the least, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has been a roller coaster ride until now. While the map changes have been brilliant, the game has been really unstable with Unreal Engine 5. Moreover, there haven’t been enough ways for players to steadily level up their Battle Pass and unlock skins like Darth Vader.
This explains why loopers eagerly await updates as they contain a ton of content such as bug fixes, new quests, and events. However, the v21.20 update that should have been released today has been delayed by a day.
Fortnite Cash Cups to take place on July 5 instead of the v21.20 update
From leakers to content creators to casuals, almost everyone in the community missed an announcement by Fortnite regarding this season’s Cash Cups.
- Read More: Fortnite v21.20 early patch notes: Indiana Jones, No Sweat Summer, Luke Skywalker skin, more
Apparently, Round 2 Duos Cash Cup and Duos Contender & Open Hype Cups are taking place on July 5 instead of July 6 because of game updates arriving around the same time. This clearly indicates that the v21.20 update will now be released on July 6.
This is in contrast to Fortnite’s previous announcement in which the developers wanted pros to keep an eye on the Temple Bloom landmark. Loopers spotted a Reality Root there, which has always led to significant map changes.
From the looks of it, v21.20 was originally scheduled for July 5 as Fortnite has been constantly releasing updates on Tuesdays. It is certainly surprising that the developers have broken this pattern already.
What to expect from Fortnite v21.20 in Chapter 3 Season 3?
Even though Epic Games itself talked about the changes in Temple Bloom, leakers haven’t discovered anything related to it in the files. What’s more startling is the fact that the upcoming themes for Condo Canyon and Sleepy Sound are already here.
Apart from map changes, Indiana Jones and his cosmetics will become available from July 7, 2022. This also means that loopers will have new quests to complete which include a new set of Weekly and Vibin’ challenges.
Last but not least, the Battle Royale modes should finally get some No Sweat Summer content including NPCs (Unpeely, Summer Drift, and Boardwalk Ruby) and Surfboards. The new release date for v21.20 should be July 6, 2022, and the downtime should begin around 4 PM ET and 9 PM BST.
Fortnite v21.20 early patch notes: Indiana Jones, No Sweat Summer, Luke Skywalker skin, more
Fortnite v21.20 is right around the corner. From Indiana Jones to new content for the 2022 No Sweat Summer event, there’s a lot to expect.
Fortnite is all set to release the 21.20 update on July 6, 2022. Indiana Jones will finally become available in the Battle Pass, No Sweat Summer content will arrive in Battle Royale modes, and as usual, the Reality Tree will continue to grow.
The community has sky-scraping expectations from Fortnite v21.20. Even though map changes have been frequent and brilliant in Chapter 3 Season 3, the No Sweat Summer event and the XP system (in terms of more opportunities to earn XP) certainly need improvement.
Here’s everything players can expect in the second major update for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.
Fortnite Reality Tree to affect Condo Canyon, Sleepy Sound, and Temple Bloom in v21.10
First and foremost, the Reality Tree will reach major locations like Sleepy Sound. Loopers have discovered a new set of roots near Shifty Shafts and they’re most likely heading towards Sleepy.
Another location where we will see the influence of the Reality Tree is Condo Canyon. Interestingly, leakers have already revealed the upcoming themes. Like Butter Bloom and Logjam Lotus, Sleepy Sound and Condo Canyon will have recurring themes which include:
- Coral Castle
- Neo Tillted for Sleepy Sound and Lazy Lagoon for Condo Canyon
There’s a Reality Root near the Temple Bloom landmark as well. HYPEX has revealed that one of the themes in Temple Bloom is codenamed The Tower in the files, and that’s the only information we have for now.
There’s a possibility that v21.20 only focuses on Condo Canyon and Sleepy Sound as the developers are yet to add the updated version of Temple Bloom in the files.
New Indiana Jones skin and temple to arrive in Fortnite v21.20
Indiana Jones is the secret skin in the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass. It cannot be unlocked at the moment, and will be available from July 7, 2022. Loopers who own the Battle Pass wil have to complete special quests to unlock the cosmetics which include:
- Indiana Jones outfit
- Indiana Jones Banner Icon
- Raider’s Relics Harvesting Tool
- Rogue Archaology Wrap
- Expedition Bag Back Bling
It is worth noting that these are the cosmetics on Page 1. These will not only become unlockable with v21.20, but you’ll also be able to get a look at the next page.
Even though this might be a stretch, but many players believe that Indiana Jones will get his own spawn location. The aforementioned Temple Bloom POI could turn into a temple dedicated for the Indiana Jones boss/NPC. However, readers must take this claim with a huge grain of salt.
New No Sweat Summer content coming to Fortnite Battle Royale
The Island Hopper quests were decent, but players were disappointed to see them as the only ‘summer event’ content. However, leakers like iFireMonkey and Epic Games itself have claimed that more summer content is coming.
NPcs like Unpeely, Summer Drift, and Boardwalk Ruby, and vehicles like Surfboards will return to BR modes. Moreover, you can look forward to completing summer-themed quests in Battle Royale that should grant XP and free cosmetics.
Battle Royale content will certainly help in making No Sweat Summer 2022 one of the best summer events in Fortnite’s history.
Luke Skywalker NPC
Epic Games has released a ton of Star-Wars content in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 which includes Darth Vader as a boss and his skin in the Battle Pass as a tier 100 reward. HYPEX has disclosed that there’s a Lightsaber in the files for a Luke NPC.
Based on the leak, it is safe to assume that Luke Skywalker will be released as an NPC and a skin, like this father. However, it is uncertain if he’ll be a part of the upcoming update.
Last but not least, weekly quests for Week 5/ Week 6 and Vibin’ quests will be added to files with Fortnite v21.20. There aren’t any solid leaks regarding weapons as we’ve already received three new weapons (Two-Shot shotgun, Hammer AR, and DMR) this season.
Fortnite v21.30 will release on July 19, 2022 following which Epic Games will take a summer break that will take place between July 24 and August 12.
