A new Fortnite Battle Royale concept could give console and PC players the chance to customize their HUD layout in any way they so choose. 

While Epic Games’ super popular battle royale title has swept across the gaming world and into the mainstream like wildfire, it isn’t perfect. Fans and professional players have found plenty to pick out that they would like to see changed – with Epic putting some of those changes into action.

However, there are still some ideas they may be out of the reach of Epic but would certainly make things interesting, if the developers could to pull them off.

Epic GamesPlayers can change the scale of their HUD but not how it looks.

One such idea is the HUD Customizer from Easkate. The creative fan showed off their creation to the FortniteBR subreddit – noting that players would be able to fully customize their HUD in whichever way they would want.

With the HUD Customizer, the days of having to squint to see parts of the map in the top-right hand corner of the screen or forgetting to check the bottom of your screen for your weapons would be long gone.

Easkate showed that fans could choose to have a similar look to the esports broadcast in battle royale matches – meaning that the upper right-hand portion of the screen would see player’s names replaced by a team number.

There would also be the option to configure materials and prefabs in such a way that it would be even easier to build in creative mode – allowing for even more ingenious designs than normal.

Plenty of Redditors praised Easkate’s HUD Customizer concept, with one commenting: “This is a great idea. Good job.”

Others, though, doubted that Epic would even take the concept into consideration. Reddit user, The_Vipr, added: “We can’t even get an fov slider so I doubt they would ever do something like this. Great concept though.”

Epic has taken fan-created ideas, like the Tender Defender skin and the Coconut health items, and put them in-game before.

However, such a major change to the in-game look of the screen could be should that they have up their sleeves regardless of fan input.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 flooded the entire map after Midas activated the Device—but now players get their turns to flood something of their own: their inventories with loot stolen from the Fortilla Vault.

Chapter 2, Season 3 changed Fortnite’s map drastically, in one of the biggest revamps ever for the game, namely by washing away most of the game’s northwestern points of interest and sliding in the Fortilla, a brand new set of islands in the southwestern quadrant.

Aside from wanting an excuse to travel to a new destination, players can now be additionally motivated to explore the Fortilla because they can defeat a boss, obtain a keycard, and then reap the benefits of boundless, formerly vaulted loot.

Fortnite’s Season 3 map, a flooded masterpiece with some intriguing additions.

South of Holly Hedges and west of Rickety Rig, you’ll find the Fortilla: a set of small islands surrounded by about five larger islands—all covered with structures resembling a tropical shanty town.

How to open Fortilla Vault

  1. Drop at the Fortilla in Fortnite Season 3
  2. Scour the area for Ocean
  3. Eliminate Ocean
  4. Pick up Ocean’s Fortilla Keycard (and other loot)
  5. Follow the Keycard’s directions to find and unlock the vault!

 

As mentioned by YouTube’s ‘Gamerz World,’ the best way to find Ocean is to glide around on one of the map’s boats and listen for her because she’s a talker.

Once you defeat Ocean, you’ll get three great pieces of loot: Ocean’s Burst Assault Rifle, Ocean’s Bottomless Chug Jug, and the ever-important Fortilla Keycard.

The Chug Jug is a nasty item, as it gives you full health and shields (and offers free refills). The gun is also mighty strong, but not nearly as exciting as the keycard, which will grant you directions and access to the Vault.

The Fortilla is an expansive set of islands, covered in henchmen and beach decor.

When you have the Fortilla Keycard selected from your inventory, the game will show you arrows towards the Vault. Follow those directions, make it to the Vault, and, voila, loot as far as the eye can see. 

The new Fortilla Vault is the latest in the game since Catty Corner’s Vault was discovered. While you got some sick loot from that one, nothing is quite as quenching as Ocean’s bottomless Chug Jug.
