Right now, everyone in Fortnite is learning how to use the jetpack the hard way. Turns out, you can’t just fly forever. Eventually, the jetpack overheats and you will fall to your doom.
The wait is over: the much-anticipated jetpack has finally arrived in the 4.2 Fortnite update. It is an item unlike any other in the game, with Epic creating an entirely new gear type called “backpacks.”
Fortnite’s recent, big comet event was the start of something new for the cheery battle royale game. Nowadays, you don’t need to wait around for a special occasion to see the map change. Every update is an opportunity to see something different.
Like many customer support reps for Fortnite developer Epic Games, Hunter Davies has heard from hundreds of anxious, frustrated, and furious Fortnite players. Problem is, Hunter Davies doesn’t work for Epic Games. He works for Epic Loot Games, a small hobby shop in an Ohio strip mall that has received a great deal of…
If you’ve tuned into a Tyler “Ninja” Blevins livestream lately, you’ve probably noticed that things sound a little different now. Twitch’s biggest star is trying to make his entertainment more family-friendly, and some fans aren’t taking it very well.
Working customer support for Fortnite Battle Royale, the biggest game in the world, means sorting through a lot of salt.
Don’t let his superpowers fool you: Thanos’ arrival in Fortnite is surprisingly silly. Players are taking advantage of Thanos in the best ways, or using Thanos to spread cheer. Given that Thanos is supposed to be a homicidal villain, seeing him in Fortnite’s ridiculous world has been amazing.
The hottest game in the world has teamed up with one of the biggest movie franchises around, and while it’s technically a marketing ploy, damn if it’s not a good one. This is the most fun I’ve ever had with Fortnite.
Fortnite’s next big limited event will feature a Marvel villain that will change the way the game works. Here’s what to expect.
You’ve probably heard about how a comet hit the Fortnite map by now. There’s a reason so many people were transfixed by this cosmic encounter: developer Epic made it feel like an event, worthy of wonder in the same way a real-world solar eclipse would be. In an age of instant social media updates, constant leaks and…
Now that the Fortnite comet has hit, the map is doted with craters. The biggest crater, as we all know, is located at Dusty Divot. You can’t really go to Dusty without entering a fight now. Regardless, one group of fearless Fortnite fans challenged themselves to build over the entire crater, and it turned into an…
After weeks of build-up, Fortnite’s comet has finally smashed the map. Tilted Towers still stands, but Dusty Depot? There’s a crater there now. (It’s also called Dusty DIVOT now.) Better yet, the point of impact is surrounded by rocks that will let players mess around in low gravity.
Fortnite’s emotes have taken on a life of their own: in the last two weeks, I’ve seen kids and adults replicating the game in real life. If you watch sports, you’ve likely seen goals or good plays celebrated through emotes. And if you play Fortnite, you’ve definitely had some jerk dance over your cold, lifeless corpse.
Fortnite got a big patch last night, but one of the changes to the game isn’t listed anywhere. To see it, you’ll have to head down to Tilted Towers, where Epic has added some new items on a roof that seem to poke fun at players waiting for the comet event to unfold.
Sometimes, a weapon is only as strong as we believe it to be. Fortnite recently saw a game-wide shift in how people use a weapon type, and it’s all because people are thinking about those firearms in a different way. The developers didn’t actually change anything under the hood, but everyone is approaching the game…
Fortnite’s big space mystery continues to ramp up and baffle people. Today, players looking up will notice there’s not just one comet, but rather a variety of burning objects falling from the heavens. But what does it mean??
Every week or so, Fortnite gets new weapons and items. They sound cool as hell, and some even radically alter the game in novel ways. Notice my use of “sound” here, though. I wouldn’t really know. I am suffering through an agonizing Fortnite curse that always keeps these fabled items just out of my reach, or, more…
