How to refund your Plastic Patroller skin in Fortnite before it’s too late



The Plastic Patroller skin went through some changes in August, and Epic Games offered Fortnite players who had purchased the skin a free refund, but time is running out if you hope to get your V-Bucks back.

The skin, which used to look like a childhood favorite toy soldier, was completely changed in August after a mass of complaints about it giving players a competitive advantage when items should be purely cosmetic.

It is no longer the same as the old skin and barely looks like what most people were attracted to in the first place, as it’s now covered with mud and wear and tear. Luckily, the skin can be refunded for a limited time and here’s how.

How to refund the Plastic Patroller skin

Refunding the Plastic Patroller skin is just as easy as any other refund. Head into Fortnite and go to your settings, then scroll all the way down to ‘Account.’

From there you’ll see ‘Lifetime Refund Requests’ just under ‘Content.’ Click on ‘Submit a Request’ and find the Plastic Patroller skin, click on it and submit the refund request. Don’t worry, it’s a free refund from Epic, so you won’t lose any refund tokens.

How long do I have to refund Plastic Patroller?

The skin was changed on August 14 with the release of version 10.10 and Epic Games gave players 31 days from their first login since then to refund the skin. This means that players who played on the day of the patch have until September 14 to claim their refund.

This deadline is just around the corner for most active players, so don’t forget to claim your refund before its too late.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are here. Take a look at how to complete all of them in this challenge guide.



Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!

How to disable pre-edits in Fortnite

After over a year of fan requests, Epic have added a ‘disable pre-edit’ option to Fortnite. Here’s where you can find it.



In v15.20, Epic Games added a much-requested setting to Fortnite: ‘disable pre-edits.’ Here’s how it works and how to select it.

Finally, after years of Reddit threads, Twitter posts, and pro players begging, Epic added a ‘disable pre-edit’ setting to Fortnite.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new setting, including how it works and where to find it.

What does ‘pre-editing’ mean?

Pre-editing refers to the ability to edit a structure before placing it. The most popular use of pre-edits throughout Fortnite history was a cone/ramp edit when controller players had to use Combat Pro.

Now, however, very few players use pre-edits. Instead, pre-edits offer an obstacle, as they’re almost always completed by mistake. Of course, there are still some niche applications for pre-edits, but most players wanted Epic to add an option to disable these edits.

How to disable pre-edits

You can find the new option under the settings tab (cog wheel) in the start menu. Scroll down to the “Building” section, and you’ll see four options. One of them is the new “Disable Pre-Edit Option.”

If you turn this off, you’ll no longer be able to edit structures before placing them – good news for the bulk of the Fortnite community.

If may have taken Epic years to finally add this option, but it’s finally here. Next stop, an FoV slider!
