4 ways to improve the Fortnite Shopping Cart

A committed fan of Fortnite’s Shopping Cart is campaigning for Epic Games to make improvements to the item.

The user, known on Reddit as ‘NezvTrash’, created a post on the Fortnite Battle Royale subreddit asking his fellow users to “Join the fight, make Shopping Carts right!”

NezvTrash has four major suggestions for Epic Games, and even made a handy graphic to promote his ideas which he hopes the developers will implement for four-wheeled item.

Firstly, they would like Epic Games to increase the top speed of the cart when it goes down ramps, allowing it to fly further and faster than it currently does. To match this, the cart would need more health, meaning it could take the much larger impact when landing after flying down the ramp at break-neck speed.

NezvTrash would also like to see spikes added to the front of the cart, making it much easier to kill opponents with the cart as you could simply impale them on the front.

Finally, carts should be able to carry items, just like a real shopping cart carries your shopping in real life. This would allow players to carry more items than the five they are currently allowed, but would mean they would have to push the cart around anywhere they went.

The Shopping Cart was first added to Fortnite back in May with the release of Patch V4.3. The cart requires someone to push it around, but can also carry another player who sits in the basket portion of the cart.

Unfortunately, these ideas are all just suggestions from an avid Fortnite fan, and Epic Games have not revealed any plans to update the Shopping Cart.

Rocket Launchers are in short supply in Fortnite Season 5, Chapter 2, and there’s one location on the map where you can get not just the explosive weapon, but also a Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle as well. 

Epic Games‘ battle royale game that used to be full of challenges and Battle Pass rewards has seen its system shaken up in Season 5. The arrival of The Mandalorian puts great emphasis on collecting bounties, with NPC characters spread right across the island.

In their hands, as you might expect, is a variety of loot. Some are holding better things than others as well, ranging from Mythic to Epic weapons – and more.

There’s one location where players can actually grab themselves a weapon found nowhere else on the map, though.

One of the first things you need to know is that this cannot be found at a specific POI, but it is close to Slurpy Swamp. Let’s run through how you can get these insane guns in Fortnite Season 5.

Ruckus is holding both of the weapons in Fortnite Season 5.

Where to find Ruckus in Fortnite

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Drop from the Battle Bus near Slurpy Swamp.
  3. Head over to the small compound east of the location, which is right on the waterfront.
  4. Hunt down an NPC called Ruckus.
  5. Take him out and collect the loot, consisting of a Rocket Launcher and Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle.

Here’s where you need to go.

One of the easiest ways to take him down is to build a few structures nearby, and pop your head out to take shots.

Do have in mind that not only will the NPC have more health and a rocket launcher in-hand, but other enemies will also be racing to get the guaranteed loot.
