SypherPK and Ali-A took home first prize in Lachlan’s Fortnite Fashion Show World Cup with the creative use of a glitched emote.

Lachlan’s $10,000 Fortnite Fashion Show World Cup has wrapped up, and the winners are none other than the biggest names in the competition. Ali-A and SypherPK strung together several rounds of creativity to win the whole event.

The strategy the two had was an interesting one. Their entire competition was based on the glitched “Breakin'” emote in combination with the Jellie skin.

When you use the skin and emote together, the legs go wild. The duo knew this and even threw the first round with the later rounds in mind.

The strategy was simple and effective. Ali-A and Sypher knew that the first round was worth the least number of points, so they punted the “style” round in favor of the wow-factor that this glitched emote would elicit.

In the last round, the pair unveiled the glitch and generated the best pop from Lachlan, but it wasn’t enough to take them over the edge. They ended up tying and had to come back for a tiebreaker round.

The two reworked their story and reused the glitched emote to make sure that Lachlan knew it was intentional. In the end, they walked away with first place and $7,500 in prize money.

The two creators – who are undoubtedly the richest people in the competition – decided to divide their prize money between all of the qualifiers. They didn’t do it for the money – they just wanted to win.

Sypher and Ali-A both admitted that it felt like they had won the real World Cup when the competition had ended. The stakes were high and the satisfaction was evident.

During the event, Lachlan announced another Fashion Show competition – this time with Trios and for $20,000 in prizes.

This escalation has all the makings of something similar to the Cizzorz Deathruns from last year. They are a popular way to generate content, and we haven’t seen the last of them.

Fortnite brings back Port-A-Fort to the game in v21.20

Fortnite’s most ambitious device is back in the game and now works even in Zero Build. Here’s all about the return of Port-A-Fort

Port-A-Fort has been in Fortnite since Chapter 1 and has been vaulted and unvaulted several times by the developers, depending upon the requirement of the item in-game. With the latest v21.20, the item is unvaulted once again for players to enjoy even in Zero Build to gain a massive gameplay advantage.

Fortnite consists of several items that the OG player base enjoyed back when the game was at its peak days. From Junk Rifts to Hoverboards, the community still misses those items from Chapter 1 and has been waiting ever since to be added back to the game.

While some items like Ballers, Traps, and Quadcrashers have returned to the game on a regular basis, items like Storm Flip, Junk Rifts, and Rocket Launchers have been left in the past. However, with the most recent v21.20 update, an item nobody expected to return was unvaulted and pros are loving it.

Port-A-Fort was unvaulted in a recent major Fortnite update where players who like to claim the high ground would once again be able to use it to their advantage. Not just that, the ones in Zero Build will also have an equal opportunity to experience the feel of the high ground as well.

A rather convenient device known for using “Zero Builds”, Port-A-Fort has been a favorite amongst the player base ever since Chapter 1 as sweats tend to use it to claim a high ground faster above their enemies and set traps for those who dare to enter their fort.

Moreover, the device helps players who are not good at building, gain a fair chance over those who are known for cranking speed 90s over their opponents and are quick with their edits. The return of Port-A-Fort was highly appreciated not just by new players but also by pros and veterans like SypherPK.

Sypher tweeted recently about how pleased he was with the unvaulting of Port-A-Fort and how it is a huge step for players who love to play Zero Build. Now they will have an equal opportunity to gain a high ground over their opponents and secure an easy Victory Royale.

However, in other news, the convenient item for builders is not available in competitive mode at the moment until further updates arrive. This might be due to several changes Epic is making with the competitive side of Fortnite which also might include the stability issues of the entire gameplay experience.

As players welcome back the classic Port-A-Fort back into the game, they seem unhappy about the addition of the new Charge SMG in the game. As far as SMGs go, this is not a favorable weapon to use when one engages in a sweaty situation while in a build fight or even in a fight inside your fort.

Combat SMG removed from Fortnite in v21.20 and replaced with new Charge SMG

Epic Games have now replaced the Combat SMG with a new Charge SMG across all their game modes. Here’s all about the new weapon.

Fortnite recently replaced one of its most used SMGs, the Combat SMG weapon with a more powerful Charge SMG in the latest v21.20 update. At a time when the SMG meta was going strong, this major move changed the opinions of the player base about the need for replacement.

The weapons meta in Fortnite Chapter 3 has evolved over time as players continue to discover new ways to use the overpowered weapons arsenal in their matches. With the disliking of Shotguns in this chapter, players have shifted their focus on choosing ARs and SMGs as preferred weapons in their loadout.

Back in Chapter 3 Season 1, players saw the potential in SMGs being overpowered in the game and developed a Pray and Spray meta to use them to lead themselves to a Victory Royale. The combination of an MK-Seven Assault Rifle and a Stinger SMG was mostly favored by the players as they went to combat against their opponents.

But with the launch of Chapter 3 Season 3, the Hammer Assault Rifle and Combat SMG were used in a similar fashion, although not as overpowering as its predecessor. However, in a recent update, Epic chose to replace the favored Combat SMG with a new Charge SMG that promises heavy damage and a stronger fire rate.

Charge SMG replaces Combat SMG in Fortnite v21.20

In a rather unexpected update, Fortnite chose to replace one of its most popular SMGs with a more powerful Charge SMG across all playlists. The weapon requires the player to hold down the fire button to charge the weapon similar to a Charge Shotgun and release a barrage of bullets upon their opponents.

The shorter the time the fire button is held, the smaller the duration of the fire barrage will be and vice versa. The weapon also has a cooldown rate similar to the Charge Shotgun which applies after a heavy fire barrage if the fire button is held down longer.

In addition to the update, Fortnite also tweeted that the Combat SMG has been removed from all playlists and has been vaulted indefinitely. However, the Charge SMG will not be available in the Competitive playlists until quite some time.

Looking at the above gameplay for the Charge SMG, pros and several players are already dissing the new weapon for its slower reload time and heavy recoil. The weapon takes too much time to charge the barrage and once released, cannot target an enemy faster than the Stinger SMG.

Pros like SypherPK, NickEh30, and TypicalGamer have all expressed their dislike of the weapon and would rather play with the Combat SMG than the new SMG added to the game. Apart from this major change, several map changes, unvaulting of Port-A-Fort, the addition of new movement mechanics in Save The World, and more were seen in the latest v21.20 update that the community sang praises of.

Fortnite adds new movement mechanics to Save The World with v21.20 update

Finally Epic Games have added major updates to its PvE Save The World campaign with the latest v21.20 update. Here’s the latest on that.

After a long time finally, Fortnite’s PvE campaign Save the World receives major updates with v21.20 and players cannot be happier. It has been almost a year since the game received an update with the latest game mechanics and things are looking good for the game mode more than ever.

Save The World campaign has been around in Fortnite ever since its initial days. Some OG players would say that the game mode itself was the actual Fortnite and still is due to its originality in the storyline and the classic graphics it boasts.

During Chapter 2 of the Battle Royale game mode, players slowly parted ways with Save The World, once it came out of Early Access and was accessible to anyone who bought a special cosmetic pack from the Item Shop. As a result, Epic also stopped updating the game mode with the latest mechanics and features and instead shifted its focus to Battle Royale.

But ever since the launch of Chapter 3, when Epic decided to add animals to the PvE campaign, players were hoping to finally get some latest Sprint, Mantle, and Crouch mechanics to the game mode soon enough. Looks like the day has finally arrived and Epic has indeed added some major updates to the game mode.

Epic adds new Movement Mechanics to Save The World in the latest update

Save The World game mode has just received a major update in the form of the latest movement mechanics as Sprinting, Sliding, Mantling, Crouching, and Shoulder Bashing Doors gets added to it. Now players can use the latest movement mechanics they have been using in Battle Royale game mode in Save The World and fight the Husk Monsters in their own unique way.

Fortnite also posted some clips on their official blog alongside the Homebase Status report v21.20 of how players can use the Ninja hero in their loadout and climb greater heights by combining the mantle feature with a double jump.

In addition to these features, Epic also added Fennix as the next hero to enter the PvE campaign and has given a dedicated questline called Flight of the Fennix to the character. Players can now jump in the game and complete quests linked to Fennix to acquire the hero in their loadout and use its ferocious powers to Save The World.

As Epic continues to improve the stability of its Battle Royale and Creative game modes, it is surely pleasing to see that finally Save The World is receiving a similar treatment with major changes being made to improve its gameplay experience. Nevertheless, the player base speculates in the coming days the PvE will also receive the popular Overshield feature as they experience in Zero Build as well as some new weapons added to their loadout.
