The Creative World Cup kicked off the festivities in New York but by the end of the event it had mostly been forgotten.
Still, the event really was unique and it was pretty fun to watch. There were some issues with the game modes but in the end Epic introduced three unique minigames that are worth trying out in Fortnite.
Each of those modes will rotate in and become an LTM in the future, that first rotation began with Sky Station Showdown. For people who didn’t watch the event, Sky Station Showdown was Call of Duty style Domination with a Fortnite twist.
Instead of having just one area that everyone had to fight over, teams had to choose which circle to camp in. Circles on the outer edges added points slower than circles towards the middle.
The mode also includes the Infinity Blade which already posed issues with the mode. The Infinity Blade was supposed to add a bit of team play as you needed to protect the person on your team with the blade and target the opponents.
An issue was causing it not to spawn and Epic changed the mode’s scoring to help solve that issue.
The next two Creative events will become available as Season X keeps moving along. Junktown Juke will provide a unique take on the Prop Hunt mode Fortnite has already introduced while the Fun Run takes Cizzorz Deathruns and makes them somewhat accomplishable for an everyday person.
These LTM’s are pretty cool and we are looking forward to trying out some of the modes showcased during the World Cup.
How to get the new Charge Shotgun in Creative Mode
These maps allow you to get the new Charge Shotgun in Fortnite Creative Mode.
Fortnite Season 3 brought us the new Charge Shotgun in place of the Pump. They even nerfed the Tac Shotgun to, presumably, make the Charge a bit more attractive. This is an intricate and confusing weapon to use, at first. Naturally, players wanted to hop into Creative Mode to try it out.
When players loaded up Creative, however, they found out that Epic had made the strange decision to omit the new weapon from this game mode. We don’t know why this is – other than Epic wanting us to learn how to use it in-game rather than with our friends.
There is a workaround, however. Putting chests on your map that offer random loot will still spawn the Charge Shotgun. Anyone with publishing power can create a map with the Charge Shotgun, with a little work.
This video from Yerk YT shows how you can make your own map with the Charge Shotgun. All you have to do is spawn a bunch of chests along with an explosive barrel, change some settings, publish, and start the match.
This isn’t the easiest way to get the Charge Shotgun in Creative, however. You can also input one of the existing Creative Maps and find the new weapon within them. Right now, these all seem to be 1v1 maps.
Yerk YT included his map in the video, but his method is a bit messy. There’s another creative map that follows the traditional “1v1 with any gun” format. The code for this one is 0983-1895-2785. YouTuber, Codelife, created a tutorial with the map, as well. For some reason, he puts in a custom code before he starts the match. That isn’t necessary to get the Charge Shotgun.
So, there you have it. Now, you can practice with the Charge Shotgun without sacrificing your in-game performance. The Charge will, undoubtedly, come to Creative Mode within the next patch or two, but this is how you can get your hands on it, early.
Fan-made Fortnite cinematic gives Meowscles his revenge on Deadpool
Meowscles finally starts to take back The Yacht in this fan-made Fortnite cinematic.
Fortnite players were largely excited to learn that Deadpool would be the secret skin in Season 2. We counted down the days until he came into the game, and then the Deadpool takeover happened.
Deadpool took The Yacht from Meowscles and sent him packing. The latter ended up at Box Factory with his tail between his legs. To this day, if you’re sneaky, you can even see Meowscles crying at his new home.
It’s been a couple of months since Meowscles was forced to relocate. All eyes are on the Device Event, now, making Meowscles the forgotten tragedy of Season 2.
One Fortnite player gave Meowscles some sort of redemption in the form of a cinematic. Reddit user u/FriendlyGuy02 posted the first of a multi-part series called “Meowscles’ Revenge,” where our favorite buff cat can be seen plotting and enacting the first part of his scheme.
At the end of the cinematic, we see Deadpool open a box that contains a Rift. Viewers took to the comments to request a second video where we see Meowscles reclaim his Yacht and the next part of Deadpool’s punishment.

Meowscles’ displacement was one of the sad stories of Season 2. Even if he doesn’t get any revenge within the cannon of the Fortnite story, fan fiction will get him there with this series of cinematics.
This Fortnite Creative island allows you to matchmake for Zone Wars
Finally, matchmaking for Fortnite Zone Wars has returned.
Zone Wars became a popular way to practice your in-game mechanics in a realistic setting back at the tail end of Chapter 1. It picked up even more steam during Season X, where a lot of players preferred the mech-free bliss of Creative Mode.
The mode got even more popular when Epic established an official Zone Wars playlist, that allowed you matchmake for Zone Wars rather than cross your fingers that you could play it in a match of Creative Fill.
Epic brought the mode back once after that, but the maps weren’t the best this time around. Since then, players have been relying on Creative Fill for their Zone Wars fix. That is, until now.
Fortnite Creator DonnySC has made the first-ever Zone Wars hub that allows for matchmaking inside of a Creative Island.
All you have to do is load up Creative, put in the code of 9488-7248-5556, and enter the map. From there, you’ll be able to choose from three different Zone Wars maps with other players.
If you’re looking for a relaxed Zone Wars experience where you can tool on the opponents, then this one might not be for you. Only the true sweats seem to know about this mode, right now, but that will likely change as it gathers more exposure.
In our experience, this is the best way to play Zone Wars in Fortnite as it currently stands. The maps are balanced and give you the option of RNG or no-RNG. Hop in and give it a try for yourself!
