Hottest picks from Epic’s Fortnite Creative Mode Reddit AMA

Published

on

Epic Games held an AMA for Fortnite’s Creative mode on March 29th and we’ve got some of best questions and answers from the event lined up for you.

The AMA event for Fortnite’s Creative mode and its capabilities lasted about an hour on Friday, March 29th. Epic picked some of best questions from community creators and answered them to the best of their ability.

We’ve got a compilation of the most salient answers that reveal a bit more about Epic’s ideas and thoughts on the wildly successful game mode. The AMA was held on the Fortnite Creative subreddit.

Here’s a quick list of the topics below for your convenience:

  • Gravity Traps/Items
  • Save the World Props/Assets
  • Additional Islands and memory availability
  • Server Browser for Creative Mode
  • v8.20 Lighting Revert for Creative Mode
  • Vending Machines and Ziplines for Creative Mode
  • Switching Skins in middle of Creative Mode matches
  • Durr Burger and other prefab sets
  • Material/Object Recoloring and Material Switching
  • Publicly Released Creative Roadmap
  • Copy & Paste for Player Built Structures
  • Competitive Creative Mode Events

There was quite a lot of future information revealed, so let’s into what was said:

Gravity Traps/Items

u/FalconStrikeFilms – ‘Is there any chance we’ll eventually see a “gravity trap/item?” That way we can control the gravity of only specific areas in the map?’ – u/FalconStrikeFilms

Epic: ‘Yes.’

Save the World Props/Assets

Save the World mode in Fortnite

u/iScenario -‘Do you plan on bringing any Save the World props/assets to Creative? I could really use the Save the World gnomes for my Gnome Village block idea.’

Epic: ‘Gnomes would be awesome…. yeah we’ll get those in for a future patch.’

Additional Islands and memory availability

u/Joloxsa_Xenax‘Any thoughts on more available islands, and more available memory? Like 50k more?’

Epic:DarkVeil – We’ll be continually adding new islands in Fortnite updates. We’re also working on improving how you manage your islands, allowing you to rename them, save copies, and have many more saved islands than you do now. We’ll have more to share later!

As for memory, currently there are some important constraints. We’d like your creations to run well on all of the platforms Fortnite is played on, so the memory budget helps prevent crashes. But the more interesting limitation is actually on the Fortnite server. Battle Royale has many thousands of buildings, props and vehicles — but on a Creative server we may hundreds of thousands more objects loaded and simulating on the server. And these islands are totally dynamic, so no “offline optimizations” are possible.

This is actually a new problem for Fortnite (and for Unreal Engine, to a lesser extent!) We’ve been working on optimizing the servers, and you’ve probably noticed that Creative islands load much more quickly than they used to. This optimization work will continue, and we’ll reevaluate the memory limits as we go.’

Server Browser for Creative Mode

u/ricky_vespucci – ‘Will there ever be an easier way to find other players for creative sessions? Can public sessions be possible on the server browser?’

Epic: ‘DarkVeil – This is a hugely important thing for us. With the Season 8 update we expanded Playgrounds to 16 players and enabled Fill matchmaking into a hub with featured Creative content. This was only one of our first big steps to make it easier to play with others. You’ll probably see us go through a number of iterations with content sharing and discovery. We’re still figuring this out, and your feedback is very helpful!’

v8.20 Lighting Revert for Creative Mode

v8.20 brought some lighting changes with its release

u/BasketCaseBoi‘I have a question regarding a recent change with patch 8.20, is it possible to revert the recent changes made to lighting in creative?’

Epic: ‘DarkVeil – Yes, we’ve seen various reports of lighting inconsistencies, and these changes were unexpected. We’re looking into it. Very sorry about that!’

Vending Machines and Ziplines for Creative Mode

u/f4rg0‘Will custom vending machines and zip lines be added?’

Epic: ‘ZooKeeperZak – Vending Yes! Zip lines not likely they have a lot of specific gameplay and setup requirements that would be difficult to move over. We’re focusing more on things like custom vending machine and other devices that can be used in multiple ways to make games.’

Switching Skins in middle of Creative Mode matches

u/snakesonifunny‘Will there ever be the ability to change your locker during a Creative match?’

Epic: ‘DarkVeil – We really want this feature! The reason it’s a bit tricky is because the Locker interface needs some work before we’ll be able to summon it in the middle of a Creative session. This is mainly for performance and memory reasons, but also because of how the game’s menu system was originally designed. We’re pondering about how we can do it. How would you guys feel about a different sort of interface, like an Outfit “quick select” pop-up, initially?’

Durr Burger and other prefab sets

Everyone’s Favorite Fortnite Restaurant

u/LXCKDXWNX‘Will you add more Durr Burger presets?’

Epic: ‘Durr Burger and a few other Fortnite points of interest are in our backlog.’

Material/Object Recoloring and Material Switching

u/thatgodlynoob – ‘Do you think you’ll add the ability to recolour objects?’

Epic: ‘Yes this is planned. We want you to be able to change various materials and colors on props and walls. This include player-built walls. However we’re still figuring out technically how this could work so it won’t be available soon. However, some new props will have color choices available right on the object, and we’ll try to provide color variants in prefab galleries when it seems really valuable to do so.’

Publicly Released Creative Roadmap

u/goodnamelol‘So we keep hearing about this priority list, but there’s probably no chance we can see it, Right?’

Epic:We have been discussing sharing some of our roadmap with the community. We’ll see what ends up working best to create the right mix of what we know we will do vs having plans change based. At the moment we’ve defaulted to letting you guys know if it’s on the list when asked directly :)’

Copy & Paste for Player Built Structures

A Copy & Paste feature would speed up Creative building

u/Stefanbats‘Is there going to be a tool that allows us to copy and paste whole structures that have been build?’

Epic: ‘Yes! The first version of this feature is actually coming quite soon. You’ll be able to select multiple objects and copy them around. This includes props and building tiles, or combinations of both. We actually just had a discussion in the office about which button to assign the new selection feature to. Any ideas? :)’

Competitive Creative Mode Events

u/ShalevB‘Is there gonna be any kind of competitive creative? Do you have any more information about the creative in the world cup?’

Epic: ‘Maybe… (included a link to the Fortnite World Cup Trailer)’


Wooh, that’s a lot of info on Creative. There’s even more information about all types of questions relating to Creative mode on the Reddit page for the AMA. The above is the hottest picks from the bunch in our opinions.

Be sure to check out the Reddit page for all the info that Epic expunged today about Creative mode.

Want to try out some of the Fortnite Chapter 2 Zone Wars maps? Take a look at these five options here.

Zone Wars is one of the most popular Creative Mode map genres in Fortnite – so much so that Epic included a Zone Wars playlist during Chapter 2.

We probably won’t see another official Zone Wars lineup while Chapter 2 is still fresh, but here are five updated map codes for some of the best Fortnite Chapter 2 Zone Wars maps for your Playground Fill matches.

Make sure to get to the Hub as fast as you can so you can avoid the Red vs. Blue battle.

Realistic Solos (XA)(Pack 1): 1234-0621-9943

Realistic Solos (XA)(Pack 1) by Prettyboy may not have “zone wars” in the name, but it is an authentic competitive experience that can get intense quickly. Two to 16 players spawn in random locations across various well-crafted maps. With randomized loadouts, players race to be the last one standing.

Nuketown 2025 Zone Wars: 1149-4422-7888

Nuketown 2025 zone wars by Clapzfn is more of a novelty than anything. It’s very cool to revisit this highly detailed recreation of a Call of Duty classic. Some of the buildings have invisible barriers at the top, and the storm always pushes to the center of the map. Regardless, it’s a ton of fun to be the last player standing in Nuke Town.

Desert Zone Wars Chapter 2: 1811-9621-1739

Those who have been playing zone wars maps for a long time are probably familiar with Jotapegame’s desert zone wars maps. However, this is the latest installment in the series that incorporates the changes made in Chapter 2. Enjoy the classic desert-themed zone wars with modern weapons and items.

Area 51 Alien Zone Wars: 9843-7754-8806

Area 51 Zone Wars by Dropnite is one of the most aesthetically pleasing zone wars maps available. From the way it spawns players in to all of the decorative pieces, it really makes you feel like you’re in Area 51. It also offers a fantastic competitive experience that’s sure to get players ready for the final moments of FNCS tournaments.

50 Player Zonewars: 6167-1882-6710

50 Player Zonewars is one of the most intense creative maps once the lobby is full. The loot pool changes regularly to match Arena Mode, and there are plenty of different maps. For the higher skill tourneys that have 50 or more people in the endgame, this mode is perfect for realistic practice.

Leave us some codes in the comments if we missed your favorite Fortnite Chapter 2 Zone Wars maps!

All Fortnite Season 6 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 6 is here, and only a few Exotic weapons made it. Here are all Exotic weapon locations for the new Fortnite season.

Published

on

Fortnite-Season-6-Exotic-Weapon-Locations

Fortnite Season 6 marked the return of Exotic weapons to Fortnite. Not all of the Season 6 weapons are there, however, and they’ve moved locations.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season c, with the addition of crafting, the map changes, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 6 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include the Spire Jumpboots and the Spire Assassin’s Primal Shotgun.

What’s more, Epic added craftable items to the game that allow players to create unique weapons out of existing parts. For instance, a Mechanical Bow and two Shockwave Grenades make the Shockwave Bow – a massive upgrade from both weapons.

Fortnite Season 6 Exotic weapon locations

Exotic weapons have returned to Fortnite Season 6, but not as many as we had in Season 5. These will be supplementary items rather than the focus of the season, which appears to be on the new crafting mechanic.

Many of the NPCs who sold these items in Season 5 have also either moved locations or don’t sell them anymore, so a new guide is needed. Here’s a map of all of the Season 6 Exotic weapon locations.

As you can see, there are seven Exotic weapons and items currently available in Fortnite Season 6. These are the:

  • Hop Rock Dualies: sold by Gutbomb in Logjam Woodworks
  • Chug Cannon: sold by Slurp Jonesy in Slurpy Swamp
  • Shadow Tracker Pistol: sold by Power Chord in Dance Club Cabin
  • Marksman Six Shooter: sold by Deadfire northwest of Lazy Lake
  • Grappler Bow: sold by Lara Croft in Stealthy Stronghold
  • Unstable Bow: sold by Rebirth Raven northwest of Sweaty Sands
  • Raz’s Mythic Explosive Bow: dropped after eliminating Raz at The Spire

The good news is that, unlike last season, all of the NPCs that sell Exotics only spawn in one location – at least, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as Epic add more Exotics to Fortnite Season 6. We expect to see them takes things further as the season goes on, so stay tuned to more news on Exotic weapons.
