Nick Eh 30 gets a sneak peek of a Fortnite FoV slider effect

A Fortnite FoV slider has been one of the most-requested additions to Fortnite. Streamer Nick Eh 30 stumbled on one by accident.



A Fortnite FoV slider has been one of the most-requested additions to Fortnite. Streamer Nick Eh 30 stumbled on one by accident.

Epic did a fantastic job with Fortnite Chapter 2. They added new mechanics, balanced the loot pool, and made Fortnite a better experience for almost all players.

Still, the player base is never going to be 100% satisfied. There are still a few requests that we covered in a separate article.

One of the top requests that we included was the addition of an FoV (field of view) slider to Fortnite. Such a slider would enable players to increase their field of view – similar to what happened during the stretched-resolution days.

The reasoning for this is simple: it allows players to see more of what’s going on around them. An FoV slider would eliminate the need for players to stretch out their screens for a competitive advantage. Instead, they could keep the game looking as intended while backing-up the camera.

Streamer Nick Eh 30 got a sneak peek of what an FoV slider would look like in Fortnite during a Friday Fortnite (hosted on a Wednesday) tournament. Nick was spectating Liquid Chap after his own death and saw that the FoV was bugged.

Nick and his chat quickly noticed that something was off. He could see far more of the map than the standard Fortnite perspective.

Mongraal was even in his chat, watching, and said, “What is that FoV??” This field of view is something that players have been asking for since Epic removed stretched-resolution.

Could this bug mean that Epic is working on an FoV slider? It might, but it’s too soon to tell. Why else would the FoV be slightly off for Nick in this clip, though?

Nevertheless, this clip will fan the flames on the FoV requests for the next week or so. Expect to see more discussion about the benefits of an FoV slider on Twitter, Reddit, and other outlets.


How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.



Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

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.

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!
