YouTube Gaming has signed Fortnite stars Lazarbeam, Muselk, and Valkyrae to their exclusive streaming roster.

Streaming competition has been heating up in the past few months, with Mixer and YouTube signing several high-profile streamers away from Twitch.

It all started with Ninja, who announced his move to Mixer on August 1, 2019. Shroud followed, and later Ewok and KingGothalion signed with the platform. Twitch resigned the likes of NickMercs, DrLupo, and TimtheTatMan while Youtube signed CourageJD away from Twitch.

Now, YouTube has added three new Fortnite stars to their exclusive roster. Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter, Lannan ‘Lazarbeam’ Eacott, and Elliot ‘Muselk’ Watkins have all announced that their exclusive streaming deals with YouTube.

Valkyrae is one of the top Fortnite streamers in the community and the first female to be signed by gaming organization 100 Thieves. She now streams a variety of games while making vlogs for her channel.

Hofstetter will continue her streaming journey on YouTube. Her channel already has 823,000 subscribers at the time of her announcement.

Current YouTubers Muselk and Lazarbeam will join the exclusive YouTube Gaming roster alongside Valkyrae. Both of these creators are already well-known for their video content but have committed to streaming once a week on the platform.

Unlike Valkyrae, the Australian creators have called YouTube home for the bulk of their careers. Lazarbeam was one of the top-ten gaming YouTube channels in the world in 2019.

The trio of Fortnite players joining YouTube shows just how competitive the streaming market is becoming. Yes, only one of them has left Twitch, but the exclusive deals are heating up as many of the top names in gaming are coming off of the board.

We still have our eyes on a few Fortnite streamers who have yet to declare their allegiance. People like Tfue, Myth, and SypherPK have yet to sign exclusive contracts to keep them on the platform.

Everyone is wondering: who’s next to leave Twitch? Only time will tell.

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

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!
