How to efficiently pressure ‘turtling’ Fortnite opponents



‘Camping’ is a long time tradition of shooters, but the passive playstyle can really get annoying in Fortnite when an opponent start ‘Turtling’ in 1×1. LX Bumpaah explains how to counter this efficiently.

If you don’t know what the term ‘turtling’ means, we’ll briefly explain. Turtling refers to the combat (or lack there of) practice of locking yourself into a 1×1 during fights in Fortnite. The size of the box can be larger than a 1×1, of course.

You see it all the time when players are trying get a better placement, but do not want to directly engage opponents. It’s a core feature of Fortnite and commonly used by most competitive players to try and squeeze a few more points from a bad situation.

Turtling can be extremely frustrating for aggressive players that simply want to gunfight to their wins. So, how do you get these passive players out from their turtle power bunkers?

‘Bumpaah’ on the Fortnite Competitive Reddit created a three and half minute video going over some of the key ways to take on a turtling opponent.

You should watch the entirety of the video once you get the change, but we’ll do a brief summary as less.

Bumpaah argument boils down to pressuring the opponent from multiple points of contact. Don’t just attack a single wall of the 1×1, rather try to take out two or three walls at around the same time.

This will give you a bigger window to replace their walls/roof as they scramble to replace two at the same time.

In addition, the person on the inside of a turtle is more than likely already weak as you forced them to build after cracking their shields. You are at the advantage, remember that and don’t panic.

The best weapons and most common weapons to use are the Pickaxe (very common we hear) and the Suppressed Submachine Gun.

As Bumpaah explains, the SMG has a shorter reload time than the time it takes to pop Mini-Shields. This means you can constantly apply pressure by shooting directly at the target and they can’t heal. This forces them to play with little or no shields.

If the opponent tries to build upwards after you replace a wall, you should attempt to block their sightline. You can do this by building a wall on the side they built their inside ramp to face.

By practicing these manuevers, you can get better at rooting out pesky players from turtle positions. You can also think about other people using these strategies against you if you are forced to turtle yourself.


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



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.



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.
