Epic Games Hints at Adding Lights for Upgraded Ragnarok Skin in Fortnite

It appears that custom lights for the upgraded Ragnarok skin could be coming soon to Fortnite: Battle Royale.

A telling comment posted by an Epic Games on the Fortnite Reddit page has turned the Ragnarok lights concept into an in-game possibility.

In a feature first added during Season 4, Fortnite gave players who reached a certain overall level the ability to change the color of light for both the Carbide and Omega skins, once they were full upgraded.

While the Drift and Ragnarok skins in Season 5 are also able to be upgraded, there is no custom light feature available, which prompted the artist, Mizurio, to create concept art for it.


While Fortnite concepts are commonly found on Reddit, this one has drawn a lot of extra attention due to the fact that Epic Games Design Lead ‘EpicEricSW’ replied to the post with this comment. 

How would you earn/unlock the different colors?


The reason why Epic cannot just have the lights unlock the same way as before is because the new Season 5 skin upgrades are now offered past the end of the Season, which was not the case for Season 4.

However, Reddit users ‘Grandwhish‘ and ‘ALilParasite‘ replied to Epic’s comment, offering their own suggestions for how the lights could be unlocked.

But how about a set challenge for each specific colour?
Red: 15 eliminations with every gun type, AR, sniper, pistols, shotguns and smgs.
Purple: win 5 matches
Green: Unlock red and purple to see last challenge or something mysterious like that.

Edit: Numbers and such doesn’t need to be what I wrote but same concept.
Edit 2: Added that the 15 eliminations is with every gun type and not with every gun, as that would be rather frustrating.

Blue is standard, red should be like 500 kills. Green 20,000 materials harvested, purple like 30 wins.


How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
