100 Thieves Fortnite pro Parallax shares brutally honest opinion on the new Mounted Turret

Fortnite Battle Royale’s v6.30 update on November 14 introduced the all-new Mounted Turret trap item but it has already proved to be a point of contention.

Shortly after being added to the game, Twitch superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins showed that using two Mounted Turrets was incredibly powerful due to the fact that there was no cooldown.

On November 15 the developers released a hotfix that reduced the Turret Floor health from 5,000 down to 1,000 and the standard Turret health from 800 to 400.

However, it would seem that these changes are still not enough to make the new item balanced in the eyes of the Fortnite community, with many still calling for it to be nerfed again.

100 Thieves Fortnite pro Parallax, though, thinks that an even more severe approach is the only viable course of action, beginning a Reddit thread titled: “Vault the Mounted Turrets.”

The Mounted Turret has not gone down well with Parallax.

“Is this even something we need to talk about?” Parallax asked inside the thread. “Scrims are absolute fucking trash because a player can just drop a turret and spray you down. It was bad enough being shot by two players, but now a single player can’t even do anything against ONE player with a turret.”

It would seem that the professional player is already fed up of trying to play against the Turret in scrims and competitive environments, but it’s uncertain whether the casual community feels as strongly about it.

Epic Games have shown that they are devoted to adding new items, weapons and more to Fortnite ever since the game was released, but they have also been committed to keeping it balanced.

It will be interesting to see how the developers respond to feedback about the Mounted Turret in the coming weeks.


Fortnite leak reveals size of upcoming Venom skin and it’s scary

A Fortnite leak has revealed the size of the upcoming Venom skin, and it looks like it’s going to be pretty big.

Over the course of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4, some of the most well-known and much loved Marvel character have been available to purchase as a skin, or have had their abilities be playable in-game.

That includes the likes of Iron Man, Thor, and Groot, but there are still some characters that have been rumored, and even leaked, to be coming to the battle royale that still haven’t made an appearance. 

Venom, the adversary of Spider-Man, has been teased as a new skin given that his abilities have been seen in-game through the Marvel limited-time mode. Though, a first-look hasn’t been leaked just yet. 

Epic Games
Season 4 has been all about Marvel, but that will change in Season 5.

Well, while leakers haven’t been able to show off the new skin just yet, they have been able to reveal just how big it’ll look in-game. 

“Venom is confirmed to be a skin and it’s supposed to be large like Brutus,” reliable leaker HYPEX tweeted on October 29. As anyone who has played the last few seasons of Fortnite knows, Brutus is one of the game’s bigger and bulky characters. 

So, it looks like Venom will be coming in his bigger than usual form – rather than fitting into a usually tiny frame like Jonesy or the other defaults. Though, some fans would also like to see a normal Eddie Brock skin, similar to how there’s also a Tony Stark skin. 

On top of the Venom confirmation, HYPEX also noted that fellow leaker intercelluar uncovered two other skins with the code names ‘PinkRaptor’ and ‘LunchBox’.

Given that Epic Games love to hide their skin behind these cryptic names, there’s no telling for sure as to what they could be, and we’ll just have to wait until a leaker manages to make them public.
