Fortnite Performance Mode

Fortnite recently introduced Performance Mode to the game, which high-level and pro players seem to be loving. Here’s how to enable it and get the most out of the new feature.

Performance Mode is the newest render setting in Fortnite, allowing players on lower-end PCs to get the most out of their hardware without sacrificing FPS. Players on even the cheapest gaming rigs will be able to achieve 144 FPS with this new setting.

If you’ve watched any Fortnite pros stream the game since the update in early February, then you probably notice that their structures look a bit strange. That’s because they’re using the new-and-improved Performance Mode.

Even high-end PCs can benefit from this new setting. Fortnite is notorious for having FPS drops on PC. Performance Mode will eliminate that issue. Here’s how to use it.

Fortnite Performance Mode in-game

How to enable Performance Mode

You can find the Performance Mode setting under Advanced Graphics in your Video settings. There, you’ll see Rendering Mode, which will be set on DirectX 11 or 12, depending on which one you use.

All you need to do is switch this to Performance (Alpha) and restart your game. When you load in, you’ll be on Performance Mode.

After you jump back into the game, you may notice that it looks blurry. Epic appear to lower your 3D models by default when you first switch, so make sure to bump that back to 100.

You will also want to put your Meshes on High under Graphics. Having this on low limits your ability to see through them, on top of making your walls look like you’re playing on mobile.

Some players are having issues with some assets – including full structures – failing to load in Performance Mode. This could be because of the High Resolutions Texture setting. To turn this off, Navigate to Epic Games Launcher > Fortnite > Three Dots > Options > uncheck High Resolution Textures.

The Texture Quality in-game doesn’t matter very much, so you can keep this on High if your GPU can handle it. In fact, most players find that having Textures on High actually improves their FPS.

Performance Mode won’t make you a pro player overnight, but it will help you get the leg-up in a lot of instances – especially when there’s a lot going on around you. We’ve been using it for a couple of days and have gotten used to the strange “bubble wrap” builds that have become the norm.

If you’re wanting to switch up your diet in Fortnite, you can use the Pizza Party item to gain shield and fill your stomach.

One of Fortnite’s mascots is Tomatohead who is also the mascot for the fictional restaurant Pizza Pit. This is a POI that has appeared in Fortnite for several seasons.

It’s one of the many fictional restaurants that have appeared in-game along with Durrr Burger, Sitcks, and Butter Barn.

However, players haven’t been able to enjoy any of the food from these restaurants until now. Pizza Pit’s ovens are on and players can finally enjoy eight slices of cheesy goodness.

The Pizza Party is a pizza box containing eight slices of pizza. In addition to cheese and sauce, each slice is topped with a Shield Mushroom that restores 50 shield.

Each box has 8 slices, but each slice can only get players up to 50 shield similar to minis. Players can find Pizza Party boxes in the normal loot pool.

As well, players can purchase a Pizza Box for 50 gold from the Tomatohead NPC. He is located in Tilted Tower, and he only has 4 Pizza Boxes in stock.

According to Hypex, the Pizza Party box will be added to Fortnite on Tuesday, January 25.

For a measly 200 gold, players can pick up 1,600 shield. However, we don’t know how long it takes to eat a slice. And this would also require players to give up two item slots.

One of the most exciting crossovers in Fortnite history is the Spider-Man skins and web shooter. Fortnite has been littered with Marvel crossovers in the past, but this one is a fan favorite.

And in classic Fortnite fashion, just one skin from the Spider-Man series was not going to be enough. Outside of the MCU Spider-Man and the Zendaya MJ skins, Fortnite is also adding the Green Goblin.

As for how you get the Green Goblin, that’s going to cost players some money. Yes, Green Goblin will be available in the Item Shop.

Like other Marvel skins, Green Goblin will likely cost the player 1,500 V-Bucks. He will probably come with a rideable glider and pickaxe.

In addition to Green Goblin, Fortnite has crossovers planned for Hawkeye as well as another Arcane collaboration. We will continue to keep this post updated as more information becomes available.

How to upgrade weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3: upgrade benches and vending machines.

Fortnite Chapter 3 has a few ways to upgrade weapons. Here’s where to find the Fortnite upgrade benches and vending machines.

Crafting and Upgrade Benches are still the main means of upgrading weapons. Here’s how to upgrade weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3.

Fortnite Chapter 3 introduces an entirely new map which means new Upgrade Bench locations. While players can’t run to NPCs and get cheap and instant upgrades, it’s still possible to power up your gear.

From Weapon Upgrade Benches to Vending Machines, players can spend hard-earned bars to bump their weapons up a level.

Whatever you choose, this guide will help you figure out how to upgrade weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3.

Upgrade Benches Fortnite Chapter 3

The quickest but most expensive way to upgrade weapons is by using Fortnite Upgrade Benches. The Upgrade Bench is also the most reliable way to upgrade weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3.

Using an upgrade bench instantly bumps up the rarity of a weapon, but it comes at a cost. Players will have to spend hundreds of bars each time they want to upgrade their weapons. However, you just can’t beat the power of an upgrade bench.

Here is how much each upgrade costs while using a Fortnite Upgrade Bench:

  • Common (grey) -> Uncommon (green) = 200 bars
  • Uncommon (green) -> Rare (blue) = 300 bars
  • Rare (blue) -> Epic (purple) = 400 bars
  • Epic (purple) -> Legendary (orange) = 500 bars

The Fortnite.gg map below shows all of the Fortnite Upgrade Bench locations. In Chapter 3, there are 18 different Upgrade Bench locations. No matter where the next Storm Circle is headed, there’s usually a Fortnite Upgrade Bench nearby.

Vending Machines in Fortnite Chapter 3

The second way to “upgrade” weapons is by purchasing a better one from a Vending Machine. These are a much cheaper alternative to upgrading weapons, however, they aren’t as reliable.

This is because players won’t know what weapons a vending machine carries until they get to them. However, they can carry any rarity of weapons from Uncommon (green) to Legendary (gold).

Weapons from a Vending Machine cost 50 Gold Bars. This is a massive discount compared to the 300 bars it takes to upgrade a weapon from green to blue.

Below is a map that shows all of the Vending Machine Locations in Fortnite Chapter 3.

Chapter 3 has removed crafting, sidegrading, and sideways weapons. So while there aren’t as many upgrade methods as before, these methods are far more reliable.
