The return of the Heavy AR was leaked in patch v11.20. This new footage shows just how powerful the new AK will be in Fortnite.

The current Fortnite loot pool is about as balanced as we’re ever going to get. There are too many rocket launchers and snipers, the shotguns aren’t perfect, and shields can be scarce, but we’re in a better position than we have been in a while.

It’s a true mark of success when the most overpowered item in Fortnite is a Harpoon Gun. When was the last time we were able to say something like that?

Well, all good things must come to an end. Leaks coming out of the v11.20 patch show that the Scoped AR and Heavy AR (AK) are on their way back to Fortnite.

Not a big deal, right? 46 damage to players is slightly above what the old AK was doing. If they up the fire rate, we’ll have ourselves adequate Epic and Legendary variants.

Well, that’s not all that Epic did. They added a headshot multiplier that will be the best friends of L2-spammers everywhere. The new AK does 88/92 to the head.

For reference, the Rare AK did 75 damage to the head, which would also two-shot a 150 HP target and three-shot someone with 200 HP. This might have been what Epic was thinking, but these new numbers will bring someone with 200 HP down to 4 HP with two headshots.

This seems a bit too powerful for my liking. The AK was never my favorite weapon, but I might have to start using it if this is what we’ll be able to do.

Pro player Benjyfishy even replied to this tweet, saying that he’d be switching to controller mid-game to double-headshot people.

Take a backseat AUG, the new strongest Fortnite AR is coming.

XP Coins have returned to Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to find all of them as of Season 5 Week 7.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

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.

Published

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!
