report this adAs many ardent Fortnite Battle Royale players would likely attest, one of the most valuable weapons to have on-hand in the free-to-play multiplayer sandbox survival shooter is the Pump Shotgun. Now, it looks as if the developer Epic Games has some alterations in mind for the firearm, as Design Lead Eric Williamson has officially announced some new balance changes that are coming to make the gun that much more useful. As seen in the tweet below from Williamson, Fortnite fans should expect the game’s upcoming Update 6.31 to include certain changes to the Pump Shotgun’s stats, with the re-balance giving the firearm a buff when it comes to up-close-and-personal encounters. The patch is set to increase damage in close-quarters situations, while slightly reducing range. These tweaks should not only help to maintain the weapon’s popularity, but also make it more realistic thanks to the minor range reduction.As it so happens, the Pump Shotgun won’t be the … [Read more...] about Fortnite Announces New Pump Shotgun Balance Changes

report this adFortnite is well-known for its emotes, which allow players to perform popular dance trends in the game. So much so that the Fortnite dance challenge became a viral meme, as fans and celebrities took to performing the dances out in public and recording them for all of the Internet to see. In a new interview, the rapper 2 Milly has spoken out against Fortnite‘s use of his dance the “Milly Rock.” In the game, the emote is called “Swipe It” but the dance is unmistakeably the Milly Rock. The rapper isn’t against his dance move being used in the game, but his concerns stem from the fact that the emote can be purchased (it can also be unlocked at tier 63 of the $9.50 Battle Pass). “That’s when I really was like … oh nah, this can’t go on too long,” said 2 Milly, of learning that people could pay money to unlock the emote.2 Milly has confirmed that he would like to pursue a lawsuit against Fortnite developer … [Read more...] about Fortnite Could Be Sued by Rapper Over Dance Move Emote
FORTNITE'S latest Limited Time Mode splits the map in two with a giant wall – but enterprising players have found a way to get around it. A video of a gamer navigating his way around the wall is circulating online, potentially breaking the new Food Fight mode. In Food Fight, the entire Fortnite map is split into two sections. This gives players five minutes to collect resources and fortify their base. After that time period, the wall drops and players can then battle each other – and destroy the pizza or hamburger statue belonging to the other team. So being able to get around the wall early gives players a major advantage. It makes it possible to surprise unsuspecting gamers who thought they were safe. This means players can kill enemies who weren't expecting a battle so soon. A video was posted to Reddit (and spotted by Fortnite Intel) showcasing the exploit – but the thread has been locked because it breaches the rule against posting Fortnite cheats. It turns out … [Read more...] about Genius Fortnite trick lets you sneak under the Food Fight wall early
In what’s only the latest example of Epic Games responding to Fortnite community requests, it appears that the much-requested fan-made Tender Defender skin may soon be released. In September an eight-year-old boy drew up the design of a skin he’d love to see in his favorite game. He dubbed the skin the Chicken Trooper, a feathered, chicken-headed hero. The fanciful fan-art quickly became a community icon after the boy’s father posted it on Reddit, and now it looks like it may be added to Fortnite itself in the relatively near future. The campaign to have the Chicken Trooper added to Fortnite truly began once Reddit got hold of the idea. Befitting the nerdy, chicken tender adoring community, the Chicken Trooper’s name was updated to the more meme-worthy Tender Defender. And what followed was an array of fan-art, recommendations for various customizations, and cries to Epic Games to add the skin in-game.With the release of patch Fortnite‘s patch 6.30 and the … [Read more...] about Fortnite: Tender Defender Fan-Made Skin Coming Soon?
