What to Expect in Fortnite Season 2: Chapter 8

What to Expect in Fortnite Season 2: Chapter 8

At long last, the alien invasion is finally over! That being said though, Fortnite’s island is full of…cubes? We always get a certain theme when it comes to starting with a new season, and this time, when Season 8 launched, it was simply called “Cubed”.

While we won’t get into the nitty-gritty of how the story is going so far because of its intricacy, the basic premise is that the cubes that were used to power the alien mothership that used to abduct players has now been set free, resulting in the cubes wreaking havoc on the island.

Besides that though, players can expect a combination of new weapons, locations, characters, and skins in the Fortnite Item Shop. Heck, there are even portals that transport players into a monster-filled realm. So just what can we expect in Season 2: Chapter 8 of Fortnite? Let’s find out.

The Season 8 Battle Pass: Same Old, Same Old

When talking about the Battle Pass in Fortnite, it’s pretty much the same thing every time. Veterans will be happy to know that the Season 8 Battle Pass will come at a familiar price point of 950 V-Bucks or approximately $10 for those that want to unlock all of the premium goodies. The free Battle Pass is available for everyone, but they won’t be able to get the more wanted items such as skins that aren’t available in the Fortnite Item Shop.

For those that want to skip the grind, they have the option to avail the premium track of the Battle Pass which costs 2,800 V-Bucks or approximately $25. This lets players skip 25 tiers in an instant, thereby granting them the ability to start their grind to tier 100 a quarter of the way through already.

The Season 8 Battle Pass will be coming with all sorts of unique items that players can collect. From villainous skins such as Carnage down to ultra-vibrant unicorns, there’s a lot to cover in terms of variety. Marvel characters have always popped in and out of Fortnite, so it’s no surprise to have Carnage in for the ride. There are also the likes of characters that are unique to the storyline in Fortnite such as Charlotte and Fabio Sparklemane. Exclusive content is given in abundance to Fortnite players this time for those that get the premium Battle Pass, and the best part of all this is that they can earn free V-Bucks along the way that’s enough to purchase the next season’s Battle Pass.

It’s like a neverending cycle of getting free Battle Passes after every season!

A New Element

Perhaps the biggest change that’s coming to Season 8 is that there’s a new element coming called “The Sideways”. Described as a “monster-filled reality” that’s “dark” and “malevolent”, it’s what’s being spread by the cubes that are now creating chaos within Fortnite’s island. Players will be able to access them by entering through portals. With the addition of monster NPCs called Cube Monsters, features will include low gravity and the inability to build anything. This will certainly impact the different island locations.

At the very least, there’s still some fun to be had with “The Sideways” in the form of new weapons. Players can craft and create superpowered “sideways” weapons in Season 8 by accumulating a new crafting component from those areas. These new materials are called Cube Monster Parts. Oh, and don’t forget, classic guns such as the harpoon gun and automatic sniper rifle will be making a comeback.

This Means War

With the fate of the island up to the players, it’s your job to protect it. Since Season 8 is all about an all-out war against the Cubes, support from far and wide is needed if players want to secure a future for their beloved island. Since there will be fellow Loopers (players that go in and out of the portals) across the island, you have the option to donate the Bars that you earn to certain construction sites where Turret Stations will be built.

Final Thoughts

It’s certainly a bizarre time for Fortnite players this time around. With Chapter 2: Season 8 all about fighting back against the Cubes, one would think that the alien invasion that we had in the last season was so much better. Sure they abducted players into their mothership, but they at least gave them enhancements that ultimately buffed them.

But hey, at least there are some cool exclusive skins in the Battle Pass that aren’t available in the Fortnite Item Shop!

Fortnite Best Friendzy and Rewards

Fortnite Best Friendzy and Rewards

There’s a Best Friendzy event in Fortnite, and it requires players to actually play with a friend. It’s not exactly great for folks that prefer going solo, but at least there’s free stuff.

Saddle up Fortnite players, because there’s a new event in town. The two-week Best Friendzy event rewards players with all sorts of in-game cosmetics for free. That’s right, players can now get their mitts on some cool new stuff without having to pay or purchase anything from the Fortnite Item Shop now! Ever since Season 7, Fortnite has been offering its players a wide variety of new content that they’ve been experimenting with. The best part is, it’s not exclusive to players who have the Battle Pass. A prime example would be the Imposters game mode that we all know is an Among Us rip-off at this point, and there’s the upcoming Island Games event as well. So just what can we expect for the Best Friendzy event? Let’s find out.

What is the Fortnite Best Friendzy?

The Best Friendzy event is a new time-limited reward system in Fortnite which requires players to team up with anyone on their friend’s list together to receive points. If you’re more of a solo player, it’s time to change things up if you’re looking to get the in-game cosmetic items, because they’ll only be available during the event and can’t be purchased in the Fortnite Item Shop. Plus, getting a Victory Royale is so much better with friends!

Getting Started

To begin with, players have to visit the official Best Friendzy website and follow the instructions that will be provided to their Epic Games account. Once that’s over, Fortnite will be able to track their progression. After registering and logging into the Best Friendzy website, they’ll finally be able to earn the rewards. Their friends don’t need to register for you to see your progress together, but they have the option to track their progress. One thing to note about the status of one’s point progression is that players ought to expect a delay of about 30 minutes when it comes to updating their points on the website.

Point Progressions in Best Friendzy

A player’s point progression is based on the time that they’ve spent playing Fortnite together with a friend. For every 10 minutes that they have played together with a friend in the Battle Royale mode, they get to earn a point. For every 10 minutes that a player and their friend play together in the Creative mode, they also get a point, but they can only earn a maximum of 6 points per day in Fortnite’s Creative mode. As a bonus, Fortnite will be giving out 60 minutes worth of Daily Bonus wherein players will receive a 3x bonus for their time spent playing Fortnite. This means that for the next hour, players get to earn 3 points for every 10 minutes instead of just a single point.

Reaping the Rewards

Remember those points that have just been accumulating? Well, there’s a use for them! All of the points count towards the four new in-game items that players can redeem. The very best of the rewards have to be grinded for, unfortunately. But at the very least, they look pretty cool.

For just 3 points, players can get an Outer Space Handshake Emoticon that they can flex to other opponents or players in Battle Royale mode. Then there’s also the Invasion Remix Track which they can get for 10 points if they’re looking to turn things up in the music aspect. Players weren’t too keen on Wraps before, but they slowly warmed up to the idea of using it for their weapons. The Life’s a Beach Wrap which can be purchased for 20 points is the perfect cosmetic Wrap to sum up how life has been for some gamers over the last couple of years. And finally, there’s the Aquari-Axe Pickaxe which looks like it’s made out of Jello. That one is the most expensive out of the four free items that players get, amounting to a whopping 50 points.

Final Thoughts

For those who are interested in getting the free cosmetic items that can’t be found in the Fortnite Item Shop, the rewards will only be available from August 31 to September 12, so act quickly! Players have to make sure that they play with friends that are actually part of their friend’s list and to make the most out of their 60 minutes worth of Daily Bonus if they’re looking to gun the Aquari-Axe Pickaxe. What do you think of the Best Friendzy event? Are you thinking of partnering up with a buddy to get the rewards? Let us know down below.

Easiest Escape from Tarkov Money Maker

Easiest Escape from Tarkov Money Maker

This guide will help you make money from Tarkov.

The guide lists all the things you need to do, along with the things you shouldn’t, to make money in Escape From Tarkov and get rich in no time.There are a few things you need to know if you are looking to make more money in escape from tarkov.

To get started, you must first sell to the therapist. This is because it will offer you the best prices for non-military items. This includes food, water, medicine, mechanical items, nameplates, and technical items. In escape from tarkov, The money will also enable you to trade with other players through Tarkov Bitcoin, and this opens the way to the rare and best items.

Next, you should try to sell to Skier, because it will pay the second best price. He doesn’t buy whole guns, but you can go ahead and take the gun apart and then sell it in parts. If he doesn’t buy something, you have to sell it to Prapor, where you will also have to level it up in the first few missions.

Do Not Focus On PvP/PvE Combat

You certainly should not focus on fighting PvP / PvE as the main source to earn some money, because if you do, you may end up losing a lot of money.This is because if you are an exceptional player, your chances of survival are around 40%. This is probably still a loss for you if you race in tight gear every time.

Key Spawns

If you know the methods and know where the expensive key spawns may lie, you will be able to make a lot of money.If you are near a place where there is a possibility of a switch appearing, you should thoroughly check it. You always have a positive expectation towards finding a prime spawn in places.

Risk-free methods (Scav runs)

SCAVs are randomly generated characters that can be controlled during gameplay by either the AI or the player. They are generally less equipped than the PMCs, but they still have a gun in their hand, which means they are just as deadly. If you choose to run as a skier, you will receive free gear: a pistol, small amounts of ammunition and some basic equipment.

You won’t get military jackets or helmets that will help you survive the fight, but you can still outsmart and kill your enemies. However, this does not mean that you have to fight battles.

Like SCAV, you get to try risk-free to make money. Focus on collecting loot and avoiding fights during the game. Items like your room key or dog tags take up small amounts of inventory space and can sell for a reasonable price, so be sure to pick them up. Fill your bags with socks like knives, stackable bags, sicc case, and jackets. If you are looking for a great place to go like SCAV, you can try Shoreline Map. After you spawn, run to the extraction point, collecting all the military chests on your way.

Know Your Map

Well, you should start with one map and work your way through it; Understand and master all the tracks on the map by traversing them over and over again. Learning with maps will also allow you to learn about map layout, spawn/scanning behaviors, even dangerous areas and spawns of items.

All this information will allow you to be better at your game and have an advantage over your opponents, which in the end will lead to positive results for you, allowing you to strive for money.

Playing on Interchange map

Interchange is one of the loot-rich maps in Escape from Tarkov that doesn’t require specific keys to access most of its content. Unlike Shoreline, Labs, Reserve, and Customs, you’ll be able to access almost every location on the map for free. AI also seems easier on this than it is in labs or pre-ordering, so it’s also a great place to start as a new player.

Most of the exchange spoils can be found on the shelves. Items like electronic components are very common there, but this is not the main source of income you are looking for. You want to find hidden weapon chests that are left in the shade and in hard-to-reach places. Often times, you can see them in hidden and safe places where other players will not be able to shoot you in the back. Gives beginners a perfect opportunity to loot.

If you are having a hard time finding chest locations, you can also loot the racks we mentioned earlier. By collecting electronics from them, you can make a similar or even better profit from repayment. The biggest drawback of this method is the fact that the shelves are more exposed to other players than the chests. It wouldn’t be strange to be photographed collecting them, so always do this carefully.

BE PATIENT

In just a few raids, you can earn a lot of money if you are patient and careful. Even with a small amount of shared resources scattered in places where other players rarely appear, you can collect a decent amount of money.

Try to inspect the corpses of dead enemies, even if you didn’t kill them yourself. Often, more experienced players drop less valuable loot. Get everything loose, even your hats.

Fortnite & G.I. Joe: A Collaboration Between Real American Heroes

Fortnite & G.I. Joe: A Collaboration Between Real American Heroes

Snake Eyes makes a stealthy appearance!

For decades now, no other franchise has encapsulated the true essence of patriotism and love of country as much as G.I. Joe. From the animated series (and subsequent movies) right down to the toys and various merchandise, G.I. Joe has managed to stir feelings of heroism among the youth of the country.

This time around, G.I. Joe makes a long-awaited comeback to mainstream culture via Fortnite, the sensational Battle Royale game. We’re talking, of course, of the recently unveiled Snake Eyes skin. Load up on Fortnite weapons and read on to find out more about this epic (pun intended) collab between Epic Games’ Fortnite and the Real American Heroes.

Who is Snake Eyes?

G.I. Joe has introduced a host of characters that have become mainstays in the lives of the American youth. But perhaps no other character has been as loved and revered as the enigmatic Snake Eyes. After all, he’s a kickass ninja that’s pretty much a one-man army. As the team’s original commando, much of his personal info has remained classified throughout the years. What is known is that he had taken a vow of silence when his martial arts master was murdered in cold blood by his nemesis, Storm Shadow.

Fortnite x G.I. Joe

Fans of both Fortnite and G.I. Joe franchises will be glad to know that Snake Eyes, the most enigmatic and charismatic character to ever grace G.I. Joe is now available as a skin on Fortnite. Players who avail of the full set will receive a number of goodies on top of the skin. These include the Katana Back Bling as well as the Katana Pickaxe. On top of that, Hasbro has naturally joined the fun and is releasing a real-life action figure based on Snake Eyes’ character design in Fortnite.

Zero Point Edition Action Figure

For a mere $39.99, G.I. Joe fans can get their paws on a Snake Eyes action figure complete with his signature Morning Light katana with a sheath inspired by the G.I. Joe universe. On top of that, exclusive Fortnite goodies such as the Boogie Bomb, Chiller Grenade, Clinger, Grenade, Harpoon Launcher, and Mythic Shockwave Launcher will be included. If all that sounds too good to be true, it’s because there’s a slight catch. The Snake-Eyes figure won’t be available for shipping until mid-January 2022. This will be well beyond the release of the highly-anticipated Snake Eyes film (starring Henry Golding as the lead character) which will grace theaters by October of this year.

A Long Line of Snake Eyes toys

Snake Eyes’ popularity among the youth is readily apparent. And this can be seen in the massive sales numbers generated by his action figure in the original G.I. Joe toyline. Though most of the figures from the ‘80s wave shared similar parts, Snake Eyes’ head sculpt was still uniquely his own. The second wave of the figure came a few years after and it included Timber, his wolf.

Fortnite and Pop Culture

Fortnite has made quite a habit out of incorporating well-known pop culture characters into the game. Aside from Snake Eyes, other notables who have graced the phenomenal Battle Royale title are Sarah Connor and the ominous T-800 from the Terminator franchise The Predator has also wowed Fortnite fans recently and we can only assume that Epic Games will continue to release special skins to satiate the fans’ hunger for cool fandom crossovers.

Now that you know, you’ve pretty much won half the battle. It’s time to get your very own Snake Eyes skin from the trusty Fortnite item shop! All that’s left is for you to don the classic G.I. Joe character’s skin and thrust yourself headlong into battle. Now go out there and give us your most convincing “Yo Joe”!

What do you think of the new Fortnite Snake Eyes skin? Will you be copping it or will you make a hard pass? If so, which other G.I. Joe characters would you like to see in Fortnite in the near future? Let us know by leaving a comment below!

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 Brings New Gameplay Changes

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 Brings New Gameplay Changes

Epic Games has unleashed Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 upon the gaming public, and with it are a whole bunch of new features for players to enjoy. With the new update inevitably come new Fortnite items, new locations, factions, weapons, and even the introduction of Deadpool. However, there is a variety of new gameplay changes that you should know about in the battle royale title. Patch notes are no longer released by the developers for Fortnite Battle Royale, though several changes have been published to bring players up to speed with what’s new.

What’s New in Season 2

In Chapter 2 Season 2, there have been a lot of new additions. Everything from Fortnite skins to new areas have been added, with the latter featuring NPCs that will need to be defeated before you can take their prized weapons. Teleportation seems to be a neat new feature too, as you can use toilets and dumpsters to navigate your way around the island. There’s new gameplay mechanics of interest as well, such as the ability to sneak around the map in a cardboard box, and you can now also share your healing items by throwing them to fellow players. So, if you have any shields or medkits handy, be sure to do so when needed.

Vaulted/Unvaulted Weapons

Another major change in this season is the weapons that have been brought back from the vault, and those that have been vaulted as a consequence. Players who like to take a stealthy approach will be delighted to hear that most suppressed weapons have been brought back, as well as remote explosives and the mini-gun. However, damage traps have now been vaulted until further notice, much to the dismay of the player base. Joining them will be the bolt action sniper and the P90.

Changes in Gameplay

On top of the fresh content, there are a number of new gameplay changes in Fortnite Battle Royale. Five new points of interest have been added, including the Shark, the Yacht, the Grotto, the Agency, and the Rig. At each of these locations, you will find NPCs that will drop Mythic items upon defeat.

Key cards have also been added, which will help you locate vaults that house several crates. You can also use ID Scan to open certain crates if you choose to. Another change worth noting is that upgrading weapons now takes longer, so keep this in mind to manage your time better.

Bug Fixes

Naturally, it can’t all be about the excitement of fresh new content for the battle royale title. It may be the less glamorous side of Fortnite news, but there are some bug fixes that will be of interest. The developers have implemented a fix in which there had been issues with selecting friends and scrolling. Players also noted that they were getting stuck on the loading screen after accepting invites. Meanwhile, others had been unable to select traps when prompted to do so while using a controller.

The Battle Royale mode seemed to bear the brunt of the issues, where there was a fault in which players saw a blank controller set up when choosing controller settings. Other issues included a message stating that players could not join a party when they could actually do so, and being unable to move after emoting.

There is an air of sheer excitement surrounding Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2. With a wealth of new Fortnite items, locations, factions and more being added, there‘s plenty for players to be getting on with. Not only that, but there is also a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks. There are Deadpool challenges still to run, as well as the reveal of the impact of the new Agent factions, and how they will ultimately shape the future of the game. That’s what it appears the game is working towards at the moment if the section of the lobby that states ‘Coming Soon’ is anything to go by. In the meantime, we can enjoy the new content, browse the Fortnite item shop, and dive into battle to see what Fortnite still has to offer!

A Dummy’s Guide to Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 2

A Dummy’s Guide to Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 2

 

Chapter 2: Season 2 of Fortnite finally landed just as February is about to close. Season 1 was a bit of a drag, especially for players who game on Battle Royale Fortnite daily. It was hard to say what Epic Games had in store for us, but now that the cat’s finally out of the bag, we can dive straight into the goods. So what’s the theme for this new season? Will there be any changes in the map and added Fortnite items that can alter the way we play the game? Find out the answer to those questions and so much more!

New Seasons Means New Skins

Every new season in Epic Games Fortnite comes with high-quality Fortnite skins and new emotes that players can flaunt whenever they gain a victory. It’s only the start of Chapter 2: Season 2, so only a limited number of skins have currently been announced—but there should be more to follow during mid-season and some surprise twists that weren’t expected. Currently, here’s the line-up of skins that you can get through the Battle Pass immediately and/or by grinding until you’ve reached a certain level in the pass:

  • Gears Specialist Maya
  • Agent Peely
  • Meowscles
  • TNTina
  • Brutus
  • Skye
  • Midas
  • Deadpool

You can also earn the gold variants for these skins by leveling up while the season is still ongoing. Here are the levels that you need to reach before the season ends to acquire the skins:

Skin Level That You Need
Brutus (gold variant) Level 140
Meowscles (gold variant) Level 180
TNTina (gold variant) Level 220
Skye (gold variant) Level 260
Agent Peely (gold variant) Level 300

There are also back blings that you can collect should you purchase the Battle Pass. These accessories go together with the designated skins that we’ve just discussed. For example, the Banana Briefcase accessory goes well with Agent Peely. While the Feline Pack is meant for Meowscles. However, you don’t really have automatically pair these backpacks to the skins that they’re meant to go with. If you’d rather mix and match to create your own style, the option is also available.

What’s The Theme for This Season?

The theme for Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 2 revolves around spies, secret agents, and being able to create your own narrative with the choices that you make. The interface of the battle pass has been revamped into a headquarters for spies, with the background music sounding like something that came out of a James Bond movie.

During the introduction of the new season, you’ll be given a choice between the two competing factions to join:Ghost and Shadow. Whichever faction you choose will ultimately set the tone for the rest of the game as you’ll get to unlock different variants of the Battle Pass skins that we mentioned. Another highlight of Season 2 is that you can battle bosses within the game. Raiding some of the spy headquarters that can be found all around the map can reward you with the best weapons that the game can offer.

What We Didn’t Expect

If there’s one thing that we didn’t expect, it’s the collaboration between Fortnite and Marvel. Granted Epic Games has already teamed up with them in the past, specifically during the launch of the movie “Avengers: Endgame”. The collaboration between these two ended up being one of the best things to happen for Fortnite Battle Royale players as it brought Thanos to the game. Plus, players got to use the Infinity Gauntlet (at least for a while). This time, Deadpool will be an unlockable skin that players can use in-game!

Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 2 is just getting started, and with so many new Fortnite items and skins along the way, who knows what’ll pop up next? So, what’s your favorite thing about the new season so far? Let us know by leaving a comment below!

Significant Changes Made in Fortnite Chapter 2

Significant Changes Made in Fortnite Chapter 2

It’s been years since the release of Fortnite. You’d expect that the battle royale genre would’ve been finished by now, but Fortnite still stands strong today with millions of players in its fan base. Unlike other similar battle royale games launch like Realm Royal and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds that seem to have fallen off the people’s radar, Epic Games is still churning out seasonal content such as new Fortnite items, skins, emotes, and other such creative ways to make the battle pass better. So, what has changed in Fortnite chapter since then? Find out as we talk all about that and more. If you want to know more about Fortnite accounts, feel free to have a look at our Fortnite Account Calculator as well!

What’s Chapter 2 in Fortnite?

Fortnite Chapter 2 is basically the accumulation of what Epic has learned in the last ten seasons. Epic promises that Fortnite Chapter 2 will be more accessible, have an easier learning curve without sacrificing any depth, and finally, more fun for everyone. Since the start of Chapter 2, they’ve added several tweaks such as limiting the use of vehicles by only making boats available as well as balanced changes the game in the DPS of certain weapons. There’s not a lot of meat on the bone for now, but we can expect biggest changes as the game progresses this year. For now, here’s a look at the significant changes to Fortnite that have been made in Fortnite Chapter 2:

There’s No Need to Return to the Lobby after Every Match

Before, you’d have to return to the lobby first after the game and queue up again on the main menu. This can be annoying, especially when the game ends for you immediately (this happens most of the time if you land into a location that’s full of players). But now, you can get back into the groove right away and queue up immediately once you’ve died in the game! This is not only a great time-saver, but your flow will no longer be disrupted.

Swimming Might Save Your Life

If you’re still outside of the circle and the clock is ticking, then swimming might just save your life. While swimming back then wasn’t such a big deal since you tend to go slower compared to running, it’s now a different case. When swimming, you can use the jump button. This will make your character dive underwater and leap back out. Once you get into the rhythm of it, it’ll now give you a nice speed boost. Besides that, diving can make you harder to hit if there are any opponents trying to snipe you. So the next time you’re in a tight bind, look for a lake or a river course to swim your way out of trouble!

Get a Free Shield in the Slurpy Swamp

If you can’t find a shield jug anywhere during the first few minutes of the game, then why not stop by Slurpy Swamp if you’re nearby? Blue goo can be found all over this location, and it’s unlimited! Just find a glowing riverbed around the area and submerge yourself in it. This will slowly heal you back to full health and even your shield meter! There are also vats filled with this magical goo that you can destroy with your pickaxe, so call in your friends beforehand to let everyone have a health and shield!

Conclusion

Since Chapter 2 is just starting, we can expect more major changes and even possibly new named locations to be added to the map changed. Chapter 2 Season 1 of Fortnites battle is almost at its end and it’s looking like Epic is ready to shake things up once more. What are you expecting for Season 2? Are there any Fortnite items or skins that you’d like to credit Epic Games to dig up from the vault? Let us know by commenting down below!

Helpful Tips: How to Get Better at Fortnite

Helpful Tips: How to Get Better at Fortnite

Fortnite has great players in abundance. Chances are, you’ve already squared up against them in a game or two. If you still haven’t seen significant improvements despite pouring in dozens of hours playing the game or watching popular streamers/pro players, you’re probably frustrated. We understand this completely. Fortnite isn’t just some battle royale game where you can only shoot down your opponents; you also have to take your building skills into account. So without further ado, we’ll be showing you some useful tips to make you better at playing Fortnite and using certain Fortnite items. If you want to buy or sell a Fortnite account instead, you can have a look at our Fortnite Account Calculator.

Don’t Land in Usually Populated Areas

Most players rush to known areas such as Tilted Towers since it’s filled with items and weapons. While you can land there during the start of the game, chances are you’ll be dead after a few minutes since are so many opponents to fend off. As you get off the battle bus, you should take the opportunity to scan your surroundings to see how many players are within your vicinity. If there are too many people, you can simply change the direction and avoid them altogether. This increases your chances to survive until late in the game, and it also gives you ample time to scavenge good weapons.

Farm Mats Early Game

The worst thing that can happen while you’re in the thick of a fight is running out of materials. Building is what makes Fortnite so special, and to not be able to fully utilize it is a shame. To avoid this, farm the materials that you need as early as you can. We recommend whipping out your pickaxe as soon as you land in the area of your choice and start mowing things down. Whether it’s inside a house/building or the trees/rocks outside, get as many materials as you can. Don’t overdo it though, you don’t want it to take too much of your time. You’ll be able to collect the materials of enemies as well once you kill them, so your mats will increase over time until they max out.

Lower Your DPI

This is the tip that people often overlook. Lowering your sensitivity (whether you’re playing using a keyboard and mouse combo or a controller) will help you steady your aim for better accuracy during sniping sessions. Sometimes, this simple yet effective tweak is the answer to most players’ problems. It may take some getting used to if you normally play on a high DPI level, but trust us on this, it’ll level up your skills significantly once you grow accustomed to it.

Listen Carefully

Listening carefully can save your life multiple times. We recommend using headphones while playing, but the audio in Fortnite is already great even without using one, so it’s fine if you don’t have a headset lying around. Sounds such as footsteps, gunshots, and more should be treated as valuable info in a game such as Fortnite. This will minimize instances where opponents can get the jump on you and catch you off-guard.

Conclusion

While all of these tips can certainly help you, what will really make them effective is to have the willingness to learn. There are powerful Fortnite items that can be found all over the map, but they won’t be effective if you can’t use them well. We hope our tips and tricks will help you get better and will ultimately help you turn pro! Are there any tips that you’d like to pass on to budding Fortnite players?

Spruce Up Your Fortnite Account With Season 9 Stuff

Fortnite’s latest season brought with it a plethora of cosmetic items, challenges, and features. Of course, if you’re aiming to raise the numbers on a Fortnite account calculator, the former is all you need to know about. Then again, to collect those skins, you’re going to have to complete challenges. To complete challenges, you might need to make use of the new features.

However, that’s a topic for a different article. This one will just be about the skins, back items, and gliders the season brought with it.

Skins/Clothing

There are seven new skins, and they all look awesome. Roxlets your avatar give a sporty vibe, complete with glowing neon patterns. Sentinel gives you a Gundamesque look. Bunker Jonesy lets you rock the hobo look, complete with an almost floor-length beard and missing boot. Vega is chic with the explorer look while Stratus looks like he’s just about ready to drop sick beats.

Demi puts your character in a sleek red dress reminiscent of Ada from Resident Evil. She does not, however, have a mechanical arm like the skin. The last skin, Vendetta, wouldn’t look out of place in Destiny. Armor that covers the chest and legs, as well as the simplistic oni mask, make the costume up.

They’re listed in terms of tier requirements with the lower ones first and the highest ones last. Yes, this season’s Tier 100 skin is the Vendetta.

Back Items

The season introduces six new back items. First is the Hot Wings, a pair of mechanical wings in red-orange and yellow, intended to match the Sentinel. Second is Retribution, an accessory that will go well with the Vendetta skin. Next, Backtracker looks like a recon droid with a radar on its front. It perfectly matches the Stratus costume.

Vega‘s back accessory is the Go Bag, and it has geometric shape designs in yellow as well as a sword stuck to it. The Nana Cape is next, which is a cape resembling a banana skin. It fits with the theme of the Bunker Jonesy cosmetic. Last is the Scarlet Edge, wicked-looking stylized knives that pair up nicely with Demi‘s aesthetic.

Gliders

Sail through the air in style with new gliders! Turbo Spin and Retaliator both look sharp as glider skins. Field Flyer, Scarlet Strike, and Tailwind Twister all look like the default glider but with different designs. The last new glider is called Holographic, and it looks like a holographic umbrella. Some of them also match skins, so if you’re going for a theme, these are great to add to your account.

And More

New emojis, emotes, contrails, and harvest tools also came with the season. A notable harvest tool is the Harmonic Axes. They’re futuristic red, black, and blue dual axes. Also, a new pet became available. It is named Kyo, and it’s an adorable robotic creature. Any of the above mentioned items would be a good addition to your collection, especially if you’re planning to sell your account. So make it a point to get all that sweet loot and watch the numbers on the calculator rise!

Maze Run Parkour Battle Royale halloween

You know what October means, right? It’s the time when everything gets just a little bit spookier, but with a touch of unbridled merriment and the promise of candy for your sweet tooth! There are costume parties, trick or treating adventures, horror movie binges, and endless cycles of scary pranks. It’s a time to enjoy being a kid as well as being a kid-at-heart.
In the spirit of the holidays, even your favorite games are also gearing up for the holiday. Events, limited availability items, and even overall looks are reflecting the festivities. Most MMOs even have new bosses or dungeons for the occasion. For example, there are limited edition Fortnite Items and skins available right now. Even single-player games are getting in on the fun, activating extra levels or scenes at certain dates.

Maze Run is no exception.

Halloween Celebrations

Judging by the teaser picture, Maze Run will have Halloween-themed mazes and new skins for its characters. The sleek female character wears a purple top hat and a yellow-green domino mask. She still wears the crop-top and skintight pants combo, just in different colors and her top has a skull and crossbones design. As for the male, he’s still wearing his old duds, only in darker hues such as navy blue and black. Also, he gets a deer head for some reason.

Pets may get the same treatment, in adorable pumpkin lantern costumes or similar designs. These costumes differ depending on the pet. At any rate, the graphics will have a makeover as well, reflecting the spirit of the holiday. We’ll have to see if there are Halloween-themed rewards or items in the game.

Enjoy Maze Run

Maze Run: Pets and Parkour  is a maze running game. The twist is that you have to get to the treasure before the dome of death gets to you. Good thing you get a pet to help you navigate through the twisting paths. Pets can come in the form of an adorable dog, fox, or peacock. They provide necessary boosts or power-ups that make the task of running around a labyrinth a much easier one. These power-ups come as perks such as Speed Boost, Way Finder, and Medikit.

It’s impressive that this game was only made by 5 people. Not only that, one of those five is actually a 10-year-old kid. They draw up maze layouts on Unity and subsequently made sketches for the UI. So if you have the time and talent to help, lend a hand to this small studio! Otherwise, you can take the time to point out what works and what doesn’t for you as you play along. That’s another way to support the game, other than playing it.
