April Fools’ Day arrives on Monday, April 1, and is known for being the prankster’s holiday. We have some ideas that would turn Fortnite into a hilarious battle royale for the day.
April 1, April Fools’ Day, is commemorated around the world by playing practical jokes and spreading hoaxes.
Epic Games surprised the community on April Fools’ Day 2018 by adding a low-gravity effect to the Boogie Bomb.
We took it upon ourselves to come up with a few ideas that would certainly spice up Fortnite on April Fools’ Day.
Since the day is known for pulling hoaxes and pranks, why not trick Fortnite players?
Fortnite’s biggest city was added during Season 2, and is known to attract dozens of players each game.
Players tend to land at Tilted Towers to collect the best loot while racking up eliminations.
There have been tons of rumors that Tilted Towers would be destroyed, but they never pan out as the city still remains.
Removing Tilted Towers for 24 hours would certainly send players into a frenzy, with tons of players frantically searching for a place to land.
Maybe Epic could fill the void with another previous location, like Moisty Mire or Risky Reels.
Fortnite’s original map looked nothing like it does during Season 8.
The first Fortnite map had only 12 locations being Greasy Grove, Pleasant Park, Loot Lake, Anarchy Acres, Dusty Divot, Tomato Town, Wailing Woods, Lonely Lodge, Retail Row, Salty Springs, Fatal Fields, and Moisty Mire.
If Epic was to change the entire Fortnite map back to the original for a day, tons of players would surely return just to feel a bit of nostalgia.
The Baller vehicle would certainly come in
Fortnite Item Shop Hoax
The Fortnite Item Shop refreshes every day at 8 pm EST/5 pm PST.
Millions of players check the shop once it refreshes to see what cosmetics are available, with the possibility of a rare skin appearing for 24 hours.
One of Fortnite’s rarest skins, Ghoul Trooper, was only available during 2017.
If Epic Games was to trick the community into believing that the Ghoul Trooper, social media would burst into excitement.
It would be hilarious to see all the reactions as fans would refresh the Item Shop hoping to see the Ghoul Trooper, only to be greeted by a funny message by Epic Games.
Every time a player takes damage in Fortnite, the amount of damage per bullet briefly appears above their body in either blue or white.
White numbers mean a player is dealing damage to an enemy’s health, while blue numbers mean a player is taking damage to their shield.
The best way to track an enemy’s health is by adding the numbers that appear, along with noting if the numbers are blue or white.
Headshots deal more damage than body shots, just like every other video game.
It would be hilarious and confusing for damage numbers to display reverse numbers for headshots and body shots.
The clips across social media would be hysterical to watch!
These boots are made for walking
Vehicles were added into Fortnite back in Season 4 with the Shopping Cart.
It has since been vaulted, but tons of others have been through Fortnite like the X-4 Stormwing plane, the Quadcrasher, and The Baller.
Vehicles are a great way to rotate around the Fortnite map or a quick way to escape the storm.
It would probably be a bad idea to remove all vehicles from Fortnite since the meta currently revolves around The Baller vehicle, but for April Fools’ Day, why not?
