Could a new point-of-interest soon be coming to the Fortnite map?

One Reddit user has compiled a convincing theory that points to a brand-new POI on the map involving everyone’s favorite burger joint.

Fortnite fans are always coming up with theories on what could be next for the extremely popular game, but this has to be one of the most elaborate ones yet. 

Reddit user ‘Inzaine’ is convinced that a new Durrr Burger POI will be hitting Fortnbite in the near future and has laid out a long theory explaining why.

Everything started when the old Durrr Burger location in Greasy Grove was boarded up after the release of the V6.22 update seemingly in response to an ongoing battle between them on Pizza Pit.

“Ever since the shutdown of the Durrr Burger in Greasy, the store has been moving by van and competing with a Tomato Truck. Now, a war may be developing between the two,” Inzaine tells readers as a part of this theory.

Pizza Pit and Durr Burger appear to have been locked in a heated restaurant battle throughout all of Season 6.

Inzaine then notes that currently, the two trucks are squaring off at the Soccer Field – where they think the POI will eventually appear – with there being a large number of Durrr Burger advertisements already inside the Stadium. 

The latest evidence to add fuel to the fire comes in the form of a poll posted to the official Fortnite Twitter on November 12.

Inzaine also notes, with perhaps the most convincing piece of evidence so far, that a Durrr Burger POI was actually spotted in the game files by data miners.

There’s no telling when we’ll find out if this theory is correct, but given the speed at which Epic Games releases updates for the game, we probably won’t have too long to wait. 

You can take a look at the full infographic of Inzaine’s theory below:

Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.

Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
