Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo used the sticky grenade (Clinger) in Fortnite: Battle Royale to the best of his ability by attaching it to himself in order to secure the Victory Royale.

Alongside massive mainstream success since its release in 2017, Fortnite: Battle Royale has made waves across the Twitch live streaming scene with the title consistently sitting at the top of the charts in terms of viewers.

Millions of players have tried their luck at obtaining a ‘Victory Royale,’ with a collection of features such as unique graphics, a one-of-a-kind building system, and incredible developer support bringing it to the top of the community.

New items, accessories, and other additions have constantly been introduced by Epic Games to keep the game fresh, with community members viewing Epic Games as the ‘Gold Standard’ for developers.

One of the most recent additions is that of the ‘Clinger Grenade,’ which can stick to a variety of surfaces after being thrown, including players themselves.

However, popular streamer DrLupo took a different route by throwing a Clinger Grenade straight up into the air in order to have it stick to his character and subsequently used the explosion to secure the Victory Royale in dramatic fashion.

More content like this can be viewed on DrLupos official Twitch channel, with updates from the streamer coming via his dedicated Twitter account.

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.
