100 Thieves SirDimetrious breaks down why Fortnite’s turbo building is broken

100 Thieves professional player SirDimetrious has explained why the current version of turbo building in Fortnite is not working properly.

Turbo building is a feature that allows players to quickly place multiple structures like walls or ramps without being forced to build each piece individually.

In a video uploaded to his YouTube channel, SirDimetrious explained that he has been using turbo building since it was introduced, and cited Season 3 and Season 4 as the last time he felt that the building tool worked properly.

Since then, the 100 Thieves member believes that changes made to the game have affected turbo building, and that it doesn’t work as it was intended now in Season 6.

The changes to turbo building mean there is a delay between firing your weapon and placing a structure.

SirDimetrious states that he had previously used in-game keybinds to build a wall with one press of a button, meaning that he could fire a shotgun and then immediately placing a barricade in front of him, with no delay between the shot and the build.

However, when he tries to do it during Season 6, there is a noticeable delay between his shot and the wall being placed, which SirDimetrious states is costing him gunfights.

The American says that he has been told by other players that “this is just how turbo-building works”, so he has found old footage showing that this is not the case, and was also able to recreate the effect of turbo-building using a macro on his mouse, however this is against Fortnite Terms of Service so he wouldn’t use it in-game.

SirDimetrious isn’t sure if this is a problem that only affects players when they try to shoot, but states that as far as he is aware it affects players every time they try to build when they are holding a gun.

Epic Games have yet to respond to the issues regarding turbo-building, but players who regularly use the feature will be hoping that it’s addressed in a future update.


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.
