Somewhere.
Oh nice, a free wrap for supporting a creator (plus another wrap to unlock) and something to unlock for Powder. Don't think I will get to the other two, but the new Onesie outfit is cute.

Is the second unlockable style of the Prisoner already available? I think I read something here about lighting a campfire but nothing happened when I did that.

You have to light the campfire here:
Ah, I was wondering if it was a specific campfire you needed to light up.

So, like, how did people figure this out? Are there some clues somewhere in the game or the interwebz? Just millions of people running around as the Prisoner doing shit and seeing if anything unlocks the next form?

I'd like to try to figure the next one out by myself if it's something that is possible and not just tons of people randomly doing shit and one succeeding eventually & sharing it to others.

This weeks unlockable loading screen shows the prisoner sat at that campfire.

so the new account merger tool feels like its fucking me over.

so before the tool came out, i had a ps4 account and a switch account.
as per the original instructions here https://www.epicgames.com/fortnite/en-US/news/account-linking-steps
my switch became my primary account and my ps4 became the secondary.
so i had to use another email for the ps4 account.

now the account tool is out and it says that the secondary account hasnt played fortnite (likely because i unlinked it a while ago).

i have NO WAY of ggetting back the v-bucks and cosmetics from the ps4 account now. and this merger tool is useless

The account merger tool has not yet been released. That link is just the pre-merger stuff so that you get both Epic accounts squared away with different email addresses, and then you can link the primary account you chose to be able to play on either platform. The final merge of getting the stuff out of secondary account into the primary account is still to come. Most important for that merge is you have to remember the email and password of the secondary account, even though you're not using it anymore and it still might be a while until they release the final merge tool... it was supposed to be out by now, but I guess they are still testing it out to avoid any issues.

Got my third win with 6 eliminations in solo. I'm pretty surprised I did that well considering I was just searching for a spike trap or a turret for most of the match and I am terrible at building. I'm glad I only fought one person who'd build and even then, they were surprisingly easy to eliminate with a shotgun.

Anyone got a preferred creator to whack in to the support a creator thing? Not that I ever buy anything, but that wrap.

Also how the hell are there so many creators?

me me!


There are so many creators because their standards for the program are hilariously low. Anyone with over 1000 followers anywhere can get in.

That's every single win I've ever had (minus the six eliminations). But then I play it as a survival contest, not a shooter. Maybe that's why the game is so appealing to people, because there are many equal ways to win it, whether it's by going out guns blazing or out-building opponents or sneaking from one hiding spot to another.

I have been playing Fortnite for months but I have never known that getting victory Royale unlocks a default umbrella and a specific season umbrella. I saw many players with those umbrellas and I was wondering the source of them until I found it recently. So I missed the umbrellas of previous seasons.


My problem is I played so many matches in different modes and my best score is second. The last one who stay with me are very skilled and build much faster and higher than me so it is impossible for me to get that Victory Royale.


Can anyone with enough wins help get few wins before this season ends please? I really want to get this season's umbrella. I would really appreciate. It doesn't matter what mode you want to play with: duo or trio or squad where you can invite some friends of yours that are good too, which would be easier too. I will try my best in the game.


Thank you in advance

I wish I was good enough to carry you to a win lol. If you have no luck here, try Reddit or the Discord posted there. Lots of people looking for a group and like to play seriously.

Tried reddit an hour ago. Nothing yet. :(

I don't know if Discord players are safe though.

But thanks for caring. :)

Doesn't matter how high they build, when the storm moves they have to get out. Stay hidden and safe with a good dose of healing stuff and focus on taking out the last guy when he's forced to move. I once got a win just by hiding under the other guy's tower and ambushing him when we had to go.
 
I wonder how common controllers will become on the iOS version. I've yet to find a MFi controller that I think I'd be 100% happy with and it'd be cool if Fortnite wound up driving up demand and getting some new models on the market.

I was just trying Blitz for the first time and forgot it was a mode for Duos, so I was confused when I was hiding in a bush and saw these two guys approaching who weren't attacking each other. Surprised myself by actually defeating them with my potato (lack of) skills.

Jesus, I love Apex but the amount of vitriol being spewed about Fortnite for being the popular game to take down is getting really annoying.

Why can't people just let games be, gotta SHOW IT TO THOSE FORTNITE KIDDIES sigh

I think you just need to have a creator code entered, no purchase necessary, but we're waiting for 7.4.0 for confirmation
Really? I didn't know that. I thought only spending V-Bucks allow you to do that. Also the store where you buy packs like V-Buck packs or Skin packs is different from the daily store. So if I buy a pack from the store, I won't be able to type the name of a creator in it right? Since I am buying V-Bucks and not spending them.

Hey Fortnite community!


Wanted to give a sneak peek at some of the changes coming in this week’s v7.40 update.


  • Planes will no longer be able to smash through structures
  • Zipline interact prompt added, and using a Zipline will grant fall damage immunity
  • Hand Cannon structure damage reduced from 150 to 100
  • Turbo Build delay decreased from 0.15s to 0.05s
  • Rocket Launcher reload time increased from 2.52s to 3.24s
  • Added the ability to crouch while in Edit Mode

Stay tuned for the full patch notes when the update releases.
When is the next season supposed to be dropped ? Thought it was supposed to be this week.
