Nick Eh 30 stands up for controller players everywhere

Nick Eh 30 is fed up with hearing the ‘controller aim assist’ excuse in Fortnite.

It’s not every day that we see a high-profile keyboard and mouse (KBM) player stand up for the controller community. We’re used to players like Bugha, Ninja, and countless other KBM players bashing anyone who uses the input – both competitively and casually.

The truth of the matter is that most Fortnite players are likely using a controller. Console gaming is far more accessible than PC gaming is, which means the console Fortnite market is almost certainly bigger than the PC market.

Ninja is one person who has made it clear that he’s talking about using a controller on PC with higher frame rates and lower input delay. Still, the constant complaints trigger controller players who have been listening to the pros and streamers bash them since forced cross-platform became a thing.

Streamer Nick Eh 30 recently took exception to all of these aim assist complaints from high-level players.

“You wanna know the thing that really, really annoys me lately?” Nick asked his stream. “Every single person that dies in this game, now, defaults to saying, ‘Oh my God, it was aim assist.’ That’s gotta be the lamest excuse I’ve ever heard, man. It’s so irritating.

“It’s not even overpowered anymore with the new changes,” he continued, “and also the fact that you can do exactly the same thing you can do on PC.”

“The majority of people that are dying to ‘aim assist’ … it’s just people who don’t want to accept the loss,” Nick concluded.

This one might fall into the ‘hot take’ category with so many KBM streamers and pro players complaining about aim assist. Just yesterday, pro player Zayt called all controller players cheaters – a common mantra of the KBM community.

To be fair, the Exponential and Linear aim assist settings are probably too strong from point-blank range. Your reticle does follow the player when they’re close to you, which is too much.

From distance, however, controller players are purely relying on mechanical skill to hit their shots. The Legacy lock-on setting doesn’t exist, so complaining about getting killed by aim assist from over 100 meters is, simply, incorrect.

Another fair point is the recoil difference. Recoil is lower on a controller, which could be adjusted on KBM to be in line with what controller players have. Still, these complaints tend to ring hollow when you continuously see pros accuse fellow KBM players of using a controller.

Nick Eh 30 is one of the only KBM players to stick up for the controller community throughout all of this ‘controller aimbot’ trend. There are some problems with aim assist in Fortnite, but the issues can’t be as widespread as these pro players make them seem.

Lazy Lake Floating Ring locations for Fortnite Week 3 challenges

How to collect floating rings at Lazy Lake for the Season 3 Week 3 challenges.

The Fortnite Season 3 Week 3 challenges are here, which means we’re getting closer and closer to unlocking the second half of the Season 3 Battle Pass. Most of the challenges have been relatively easy this season, with only one weekly challenge requiring us to search in a particular area.

Last week we were looking around The Yacht. This week we’re venturing across the map over to Lazy Lake, where we’ll need to collect floating rings.

These four rings are scattered around Lazy Lake, making it difficult to complete this challenge in one shot – at least, if you’re doing it in a regular Battle Royale match.

As always, we recommend opting for Team Rumble. It makes things easier, and you may even be able to finish your eliminations challenge from last week if you haven’t already. Here’s a map of all of the Floating Ring locations at Lazy Lake:

The most obvious ring is located next to the gas station. You should be able to jump on an umbrella to grab it. After that, make your way to the intersection and look on top of the tree. The third ring is in the street at the entrance to Lazy, and the final ring is in between the towers of the No Sweat Insurance building.

Here’s a video from HarryNinetyFour that shows you exactly where you’ll need to visit.

You can take a look at the full list of challenges here, but the rest of them are easy enough to complete on your own. You may be sitting in the cornfield at Frenzy for a while, but that comes with the territory.

Lazy Lake fireworks location for Fortnite Captain America challenge

Published

When the Fortnite v13.20 patch released, Epic revealed that they’d be bringing a special hero to the Item Shop for the 4th of July. That hero was later revealed to be none other than Captain America – one of the core Avengers who we never saw during the initial Marvel crossover events.

Captain America is, reportedly, set to hit the Item Shop within the next rotation. He should be available when the Item Shop resets at 8 PM EST on July 2. We’re only hours away from having Cap in our locker, and he’ll probably be one of the most popular skins for the next week.

As you can see, there have already been plenty of official teasers for Captain America, but one of them went under the radar. When the Week 3 Challenges went live, Epic added a daily challenge that requires you to light fireworks around Lazy Lake. These fireworks explode to show the Captain America shield.

There are six firework locations surrounding this POI, but you only need five to complete the challenge. You can easily finish this challenge in a single game of Team Rumble once you know where to look. Here are all of the firework locations.

This challenge rewards players with 14,000 XP as it’s one of the golden daily challenges rather than a weekly challenge. That isn’t a ton of experience, but it’s a healthy reward for a challenge that will only take a few minuted to complete. Now, all that’s left is to see how the new Fortnite Captain America skin looks!

This concept brings grilling to Fortnite in time for summer

This thematic addition to Fortnite Season 3 is perfect for Summer Splash.

Fortnite Season 3 has put a new emphasis on food. Vegetable boxes spawn all across the map while players farm for cabbage and corn as a new way to heal. Most players are fans of this change. The more healing items in the game, the better.

Why stop there? Why not allow us to cook our food for additional HP? Well, one Fortnite player made a concept that allows us to do just that. Reddit user u/MapleSmoothie created a Hot Dog concept. You can find them in fridges and eat them raw, or grill them for greater healing power.

This concept, as its creator points out, would be a perfect addition to the Summer Splash event. Grilling and summertime go hand in hand, and Epic even have an existing emote to correspond with the mechanic.

We don’t need to stop with hot dogs, either. Epic could allow us to grill corn and add other meats like burgers and sausages. Some of them could even grant shields, allowing you to carry some food versions of Minis and Big Pots.

It’s probably too late for Epic to add this to Season 3. There’s a chance that we could see it next year, however. Epic have always welcomed community concepts with game mechanics and skins. This one would be a small, yet thematic addition that could bring a new element into the game.
