This Lily Pad item concept is a brilliant addition to Fortnite

This concept would bring one of the natural Lily Pads into your inventory.

Mobility is one of the areas that need the most attention in Fortnite Season 2. We now have Launch Pads in public matches, but they’re still missing in the competitive playlists.

Launch Pads are a great start, but they’re just that – a start. We’ll likely see something else come to Season 2 that will help us get around the map. Most fans assume that a land vehicle will be the next addition.

It’s true; a new or unvaulted land vehicle would be a perfect fit for the new Fortnite map. What about other mobility items, though? Will Epic continue to unvault old items or will they create something new?

Reddit user u/jrushFN came up with a concept that itemized Lily Pads. The competitive community jokes that Lillypads have been the best source of mobility in Chapter 2, but that’s not totally wrong. They provide a safe, balanced way to get around the swamp.

According to the creator, these Lily Pads will be a common, low-distance mobility item that improves rotation and opens the door for ‘meme plays’ and trickshots.

This might be the perfect mobility addition to Fortnite Chapter 2. Lily Pads are unique to this season and present a minimally powerful mobility tool that could be used for all types of strategy.

The only problem that I can see is clogging the loot pool. You don’t want these items to be too common, or else we’ll all complain about having an inventory full of Lily Pads. Apart from that, these would be a phenomenal addition to the game.

Glitches

Bizarre Fortnite bug causes an infinite no-storm game

This Fortnite player experienced an infinite game due to a new and rare glitch.

Fortnite Storm

There have always been – and always will be – bugs in Fortnite. There will be bugs in every game, but they can be more frustrating in competitive ones. Some bugs are fun and good for a laugh, while others make you want to Summit your monitor.

This bug falls in between these categories – equally annoying and intriguing. One Fortnite player experienced a new and rare bug that caused the storm to stay away from the island. He reportedly played for an hour, clearing out the lobby and searching for the last person, before calling it quits and letting a bush-camper win.

This bizarre glitch was likely caused by Midas’ tinkering with the storm. The storm circles have been strange since the last Fortnite update – mirroring those of Warzone before shrinking to a smaller, more familiar circle.

Theories have it that this is the work of Midas, who is trying to prevent or otherwise mess with the storm ahead of the Doomsday Event.

In this match, u/woofblah spent his time collecting all of the mythic weapons he could carry. He also traveled a reported 28km searching for his final target before eliminating himself and seeing a bush camper in the corner of the map.

This is the first time that we’ve seen such a glitch, so it has to be rare. Again, it’s likely that the bug was triggered by the updated storm.

Let us know if this issue becomes more widespread. In a game like this, it becomes a war of attrition. How bad do you want the win? More than the kid in the bush? Probably not.

Leak

Fortnite Season 3 leak reveals more details about the flood

New Fortnite Season 3 leaks promise a progressively lower water level over the course of the season.

Published

The internet was buzzing, yesterday, when the PlayStation store accidentally released a promotional image for Fortnite Season 3. We can give them the benefit of the doubt that they weren’t prepared for a last-minute extension, but they would still have been early by two days early.

The leaked image was small but it was enough to virtually confirm the rumors of a map-wide flood and begin some new rumors about a potential SpongeBob crossover.

YouTuber, Tabor Hill, was the primary creator who was providing us with leaked information ahead of Season 3. His source gave him information about Party Royale, the flood, and the Season 3 Battle Pass before any of it had been released or corroborated by additional information.

He came back with a video on June 1, following the PlayStation Store’s leaked image. The video covered many of his original leaks and the theories surrounding the new image but added some additional information on top.

To those who are worried about the entire map being covered in water, Tabor Hill said, “Epic knows what they’re doing … You’re not going to be completely on water, don’t worry.” He also added another piece of information that he withheld in his original video: the water level will go down as the season progresses and “eventually return to normal.”

(3:30 for mobile viewers)

To add a bit of intrigue to the end of his video, Tabor Hill told his viewers that, “One or two new locations may reveal themselves.”

So, according to these leaks, the water level will lower over the course of the season – similar to how the snow has melted in past winter events. This makes perfect sense and we could see it happening this way.

Hopefully, however, the beginning of the season doesn’t use the current swimming mechanics that we have in the game. “SpongeBob physics” underwater would be an ideal middle-ground if the entire map is flooded, as we covered in a separate article.

All of this information will be proven true or false on June 11. We’ll keep you covered with more rumors, leaks, and more as we wait for the event and new season.

Concepts

Fortnite ‘Hitbox’ outfit concept would be perfect for Creative Mode

This Season 3 concept makes all Fortnite hitboxes visible in Creative Mode.

It’s no secret that competitive Fortnite players gravitate towards a certain kind of skin. We dub these skins “sweaty.” They’re largely female and largely simple, which is an advantage in a competitive third-person shooter.

Smaller characters take up less of your screen and are more difficult to track. Simple outfits also help you blend into the surroundings rather than stick out like a sore thumb.

Epic have maintained that all of their hitboxes are the same – big and small skins alike. We assume that they’re telling the truth, but that doesn’t change the fact that large skins feel like a huge disadvantage in Fortnite.

Skins like Cable, Rippley, Big Chuggus, Brutus, and others feel like they’re easier to hit. We could be wrong, but it makes us feel vulnerable to wear these skins in a game.

Despite the claims that all of the hitboxes are identical, the player base doesn’t know exactly what the Fortnite hitboxes look like. Reddit user u/williambash came up with a concept that will help us find the hitboxes within each skin.

This outfit would be free and would only be available in Creative Mode. It could even be an equitable outfit for each skin so we can know, once and for all if there are any differences.

This outfit would help us better understand why we may be missing some of our shots. Bloom will always be a problem but it’s exacerbated when it feels like our shots are hitting an opponent and they don’t register.

This concept is a small suggestion and easy enough to implement into the game. It would help clarify any hitbox confusion and, likely, garner positive feedback from the competitive community. It’s a win-win.
