100 Thieves Pro Fortnite Player Thinks the Game Could Make Some Improvements

One of the newest editions to the 100 Thieves organization, Archie ‘Parallax’ Shrader lent his opinion on the current state of Fortnite and how things could improve for a more balanced game. 

In a recent Reddit post, Parallax attempted to cover how the most recent updates have changed the in-game meta by breaking down the changes and addressing what he believed was good and bad about them. 

The shotgun changes have been a hot topic around the community, and he believes that the nerf to damage means there is little reason to use the Tactical Shotgun. 

In the explanation, he says the reduction of pump shotgun damage had thrown the system in disarray as before the ability to one shot opponents allowed the game to be balanced.

Another topic the 100 Thieves player addressed was trap damage detailing that developers have missed the mark and should be at set to 100 rather than the current 150 or previous 75.

He also addressed one of the most controversial changes in Fortnite, the material and llama nerf. 

Material Nerf / Llama Nerf / Farmed Materials

As of recent Llamas were nerfed. Rockets removed, and mat’s lowered. While I do agree 1500 was quite a bit for getting a llama which in Solos/Duos and even Squads could be a game changer. That’s half of the max materials you can carry. While on the other hand, it gave 500 metal. Which is 50 metal walls worth of building. Putting together a base and setting up on high ground with that type of building material makes it rough for other teams to push. Personally I believe the materials given from a llama should scale from game mode.
Solos are : 200 Wood / 100 Brick / 0 Metal. Duos are : 300 Wood / 200 Brick / 100 Metal. Squads are : 300 Wood / 300 Brick / 200 Metal.
While some may argue it is difficult to find a llama, for those who survive to late game, loot often trickles down the players onto the last alive. Which can carry over from anyone. 100 Players, and a relatively small map means 3 llamas are an easy find.
Overall material gathering should be buffed to 25% of it’s normal gather rate.

Ground material nerf.

Unsure why this was even changed.

Farming materials.

Did anyone play Season 2? Remember those vibrant, yellow-green pine trees that gave 50 wood per? Those were the trees to farm, not the big broccoli trees. Well that’s changed. Some of the items in the game that can be farmed for materials should be balanced, or buffed. I don’t believe everyone should be able to easily get 999 of each material like in Blitz, although I DO believe the normal game mode’s farming is far too low. Possibly buff it by 20% entirely?

The pro player would like to see other inconsistencies improved as well to round a game that he enjoys. 

Epic Games has considered user feedback in the past, so it is possible that some of these changes could be implemented soon.

Wolverine, the fierce member of the X-Men, has gotten himself a cool new skin to unlock in Fortnite. But you’ll need to jump through a few hoops to unlock it. This guide will tell you how to unlock the Wolverine Logan Skin in Fortnite.

Fortnite is always getting a stream of new content to unlock and obtain. The latest content, announced via Fortnite‘s Twitter, is a brand new skin for Wolverine that pays homage to his origin character – Logan.

As usual, these rare skin styles don’t come easily, so you’re going to have to work to unlock the man with dangerous adamantium claws. Luckily enough, we know exactly what you need to, and how to do it.

How to unlock Logan skin

In order to unlock the Logan skin, you’ll need to slice your way through 60 of the game’s weekly challenges – whichever ones you want to complete is entirely up to you.

In addition to this, you’ll also need to complete 6 of Wolverine’s Battle Pass Challenges. Again, the game doesn’t specify any, in particular, meaning you have the unbridled freedom to do the ones you want to.

Weekly challenges typically drop every Thursday, and we’ll have weekly challenge guides to get you through them all. It might take a while to grind through them, but Epic confirmed that Season 4’s Weekly and Wolverine Challenges stay available all through the rest of the Season.

It’s entirely possible that you’re already well on the way to fulfilling these demands and very soon you’ll have your very own Logan outfit.

You need Wolverine first

Naturally, to obtain the mature version of Wolverine, you do need to already have possession of the original Wolverine costume first. Just in case you’re unfamiliar with how to do so, we do have tips on how to do that too.

You will need to complete 6 specific Wolverine challenges:

Step 1 – Complete ‘Investigate Mysterious Claw Marks

  • Jump from the Battle Bus and land at Weeping Woods
  • Use the map below to see the locations you should visit
  • Investigate each in the bathroom, on the fridge, and on the trailer

Step 2 – Complete ‘Find loading screen picture at Quinjet Patrol site

  • Exit the Battle Bus near the middle of the map
  • Land at the Quinjet ship, which spawns at different places each time
  • Enter the Quinjet, and find the loading screen
  • Search the loading screen and you’re done
  • Complete ‘Find Wolverine’s Trophy at Dirty Docks’

Step 3 – Complete ‘Launch off all Sentinel Hands without touching the ground

  • Exit the Battle Bus at Dirty Docks.
  • Glide over towards the warehouses in Dirty Docks, landing at the one with all the vases.
  • Go inside and interact with the Sentinel Head to complete the challenge.

Step 4 – Complete ‘Locate a Mutant Containment Truck

  • Exit the Battle Bus at Dirty Docks
  • Head over to the sentinel robots again, and string together launches from their hands
  • Land on the last one to complete the challenge
  • Complete ‘Defeat Wolverine’

Step 5 – Complete ‘Locate a Mutant Containment Truck

  • The Trask Transport Truck landmark can be found northeast of Coral Castle and southeast of Lockie Lighthouse. The Truck will be sitting a piece of rock that has introduced in the latest map changes.

Step 6 – Complete ‘Defeat Wolverine’

  • It would help to have a whole squad ready to take down the clawed superhero, as by far one of the most difficult bosses to kill by yourself, however, it can still be done.
  • Once you grab your gear to defeat him, you will need to track the Marvel hero down deep within the Weeping Woods POI or on the outskirts of Slurpy Swamp. You can find all spawn locations for Wolverine below.

Once you’ve completed these 6 steps, you should then unlock Wolverine.
