5 quality-of-life changes for Fortnite Season 2

Published

on

Fortnite Season 2 is on its way. Here are five quality-of-life improvements that Epic could make to the game. Fortnite is far from perfect, as any longtime player will tell you. Epic, to their credit, is trying to limit the most glaring issues with Fortnite, first. The team still focuses on improving the quality-of-life with each major update, too. Here are five ideas that hopefully come to fruition in Fortnite Season 2.

Team Rumble gliders

This might be the most obvious change on the list. Enable Glider Re-Deploy in Team Rumble and take the items out of the game mode.

It’s stunning that Epic didn’t make this shift when they changed to Fortnite Chapter 2. Glider Re-Deploy items don’t even have an in-game icon when you drop them. Give everyone an extra slot and make Re-Deploy standard. I’d be surprised if we didn’t see this shift in Fortnite Season 2.

Loadout presets

Players have been asking for loadout presets for a long time. Everyone who regularly plays Fortnite has a preferred loadout. All Epic has to do is enable a preset, where each weapon/item falls into a specific location.

This would allow players to be more confident in early-game fights. It might even help new players more than anyone, as they’ll be able to fight without worrying about pulling out the wrong weapon.

Revamped Competitive System

The competitive system in Fortnite is one of the worst systems in all of competitive gaming. Not only is the Champion League pool insanely large, but you receive no rewards for grinding your way up the ladder.

Players who aren’t competing in paid tournaments have no reason – other than personal achievement – to make it all the way to Champion League. Apex Legends is more than a year younger than Fortnite and its competitive system is far more refined.

Worse yet, there’s no downranking in competitive Fortnite. You can theoretically have 0 points and still be in Champion League. Epic needs to completely change this if they want to foster a healthy competitive community outside of the top ranks.

FoV Slider

Fortnite competitive players have been asking for a field-of-view (FoV) slider for over a year, now. Chapter 1 brought us an enhanced FoV with the Snowball and Lightsaber, so why can’t we have the option in the full game?

Stretched resolution didn’t look great as a spectator. It was understandable that Epic didn’t want viewers to watch competitive Fortnite that way. The ability to zoom-out the FoV doesn’t change the way the game looks, though. Hopefully, Season 2 is the time – but I’m not holding my breath.

Locker Presets

Locker presets would be one of the more welcomed changes to Fortnite. If you’ve ever played Rocket League, then you know exactly how this would work. You can have several presets of skin, back bling, and pickaxe combinations to cycle through without digging through your locker.

Epic is working to improve the lockers in Fortnite, and a change like this would appease the bulk of Fortnite players. Fingers crossed we get the ability to make some presets in Fortnite Chapter 2.

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far

Published

on

By

The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.

Leaked Map Stages

All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.

Leaked Quest Voice Line

Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.

A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:

“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”

Doomsday Landmark

According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.

Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.

Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go Unvaulted Until April 25

Published

By

In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
