Second mysterious Fortnite Rune activated at Loot Lake

Published

Will Fortnite Battle Royale Season 9 feature a major in-game event like Season 4’s meteor crash or the infamous rocket launch?

Ever since excavation sites began popping up around the Fortnite map, a few clues have been revealed about what lays underneath the surface.

Dusty Divot’s site revealed a huge metal pirate anchor and dinosaur bones, while Loot Lake’s site consists of something completely different.

On April 17, Loot Lake’s construction was complete by revealing a huge metal door with four mysterious slots.

Loot Lake’s rune activation

A rune appeared above one of Loot Lake’s slots, where players were required to deal damage in order to move the mystical item to its slot.

The second rune appeared on April 23, but this time, it simply dropped right into place.

A video of the second rune activation was posted to Twitter by iScenario:

What is the purpose of the runes?

The true purpose of the runes have not been revealed, but we think that they could be pointing towards a map-changing event for Fortnite Battle Royale Season 9.

There are about two weeks left in Season 8, and Epic usually has plans up their sleeves for new seasons.

One theory we have is that the giant metal door at Loot Lake is holding back a huge mystical monster which will act as a world boss.

There are still two more runes to be placed at Loot Lake, and we expect the final rune to kick off an in-game event.

We would like to see another wild season-ending event like the Rocket Launch from Season 4.

Do you think Epic is trolling with the metal door at Loot Lake? Is there something mysteriously epic being hidden? Let us know your thoughts!

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

on

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!
