Is this the best Fortnite trickshot of all time?

Published

on

We’ve seen a lot of Fortnite trick shots in our time, but this ridiculous shot might take the cake.

With a seemingly endless amount of possible options, Fortnite is the perfect game for a trick-shotter to thrive while attempting to hit clips.

Trick-shotting originally formed in the days of Call of Duty 4 and Modern Warfare 2, where players would typically attempt to get the final elimination of a match with a ‘snazzy’ sniper no scope.

While describing trick shots in words might be difficult, actually hitting them is even harder. However, some shots are just so absurd that they almost kind of look easy from the streamers POV.

This is the case with streamer HippieHabitat, who used the Driftboard to its limit by pretty much destroying the competition with the help of an Impulse Grenade.

We could describe it all day, but we just recommend watching it below.

The ability to launch the opposing player in the exact direction in which he needed them to go really brought the whole clip together, and could have seriously ruined the entire thing if it went differently.

Yet, even though the shot was awesome, we still think HippieHabitat’s reaction is probably the best part of the clip.

If you want to see more content from HippieHabitat, be sure to follow him on Twitch and on Twitter.

Stats reveal the deadliest locations in Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite data miner, Lucas7Yoshi, has created a map of the most deadly locations in Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to land or avoid.

Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass

The Fortnite world is a deadly one. Take a look at some of the most dangerous locations on the entire map.

It’s no secret that Fortnite – and all battle royales, for that matter – have hot-spots for players to drop. If you want a fight, you’ll find one at Salty Towers in every game. If you want a more relaxed experience, Craggy Cliffs might be your speed.

Which are the deadliest places on the Fortnite map? Regular players know about some of them. It should be no secret that Salty Towers and Pleasant Park see a lot of action.

Data miner Lucas7Yoshi has been gathering all kinds of Fortnite data, lately. Most recently, he compiled a map of the most active locations in Season 5. As you can see, Salty Towers and Lazy Lake top the list.

The areas shrouded in blue aren’t completely inactive, but they show how much activity happens at the center of the map. If you want a safe drop, the northeast corner is probably your best bet.

From the map, you can see that the action isn’t isolated to the center. Sure, it’s the most active, but Holly Hedges, Sweaty Sands, Retail Row, and Slurpy Swamp almost always have a few deaths per match.

These locations are probably more bus path-dependent than Pleasant, Salty, and Lazy, but they still get a ton of attention. Stealthy Stronghold – likely bolstered by the addition of Predator – can also be seen on the map.

This map doesn’t give us too much new information, but it’s interesting to see how much activity takes place in different areas of the map. Even the no man’s land of the Zero Point has more deaths than places like Steamy Stacks – the safest named POI in Season 5.

We’re interested in learning more about Fortnite trends as Lucas7Yoshi continues his research. So far, he’s compiled data for the most popular cosmetics to go along with his new death map.

Fortnite Winter Trials event & rewards leaked

Epic Games quickly added and removed a webpage that revealed a new Fortnite event: Winter Trials. Here’s everything we know so far.

Epic Games released a new website, announcing the Fortnite Winter Trials. They have since removed the site, leading fans to believe it was leaked early.

Most of the time, when we’re discussing Fortnite leaks, we’re talking about data miners finding files in the game that relate to certain events, skins, etc. In rare cases, Epic let something slip a bit early. That’s what we have here.

On January 25, Epic released the Fortnite Winter Trials webpage, showcasing free rewards, an influencer tournament, community voting on events, and more.

The website was quickly removed after it was added, but data miner Hypex was able to record some of the contents before it went down.

The details of the event are still limited, but it appears as though players will be earning badges for logging in, voting for challenges, and playing Fortnite.

Over the course of the rest of the season, your playtime and badges will reward you with free cosmetics. Most of them are hidden, but we know about a spray, emoticon, and weapon wrap from the images on the website.

We should see an official announcement of the event soon. Since Epic were the ones who jumped the gun, we expect to see them announce the event as soon as tomorrow – if not later tonight.

We’ll update this post when we learn more about the event, along with additional details on how to earn free cosmetics. Stay tuned.

Fortnite tease new Drift Crew skins

Published

on

Epic Games are dropping some cryptic hints relating to the iconic Drift character in Fortnite, and speculation suggests it’s all leading to a new Drift Crew skin.

On January 24, Epic Games posted a series of mysterious tweets, to get the community guessing.

Their first post referenced Drift directly, saying: “Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?” A series of messages followed, asking for help – presumably Drift’s help.

The Fortnite account has since deleted the tweets, but here’s a screenshot of all of them from iFireMonkey.

Data miner HYPEX was quick to highlight that these teasers are almost certainly connected to the upcoming new Drift Skin, which appears to be a female version of the fan-favorite skin.

Fortnite Crew is the monthly subscription service, and it’s expected that this new Drift skin will be included in the February edition of the subscription rewards.

The Fortnite Crew subscription includes V-Bucks plus cosmetic rewards.

The subscription grants players each new Battle Pass, plus 1,000 V-Bucks, in addition to the cosmetic rewards.

We’ll have to wait and see confirmation about the new Drift skin as we put January in the rearview mirror and move into February.
