Epic Games have been criticized by the Fortnite Battle Royale community, after they suggested that players slow down their editing as a workaround for inaccuracies when performing edits rapidly. 

As Fortnite closes in on two years since its release, the game continues to experience a number of meta-changes, particularly among its professional community, as the most talented players in the world strive to improve. 

One aspect of the game that has grown into an integral part of competitive gameplay is the ability to edit builds, allowing quick repositions and angles that allow for offensive play. As pro players take this ability to a rapid level, Epic Games look like they are struggling to keep up.

An Epic Games response on their public Trello board – used to track issues in the game, which are then color coded depending on their status – suggested that players “edit structures slowly” in order to combat inaccuracies when editing rapidly. 

The response was to a bug that means “Editing a structure rapidly may create a different shape than intended”. 

However, this response has – understandably – caused quite a stir in the Fortnite community, as the speed at which edits are performed is key to high-skilled engagements and can quite often determine which player successfully eliminates their opponent.

A post by Reddit u/911riley1 was sarcastically titled “Big brain time”, mocking the Epic response. 

This view was echoed by a number of other players in response to the post, with one saying that the response translates to “stop being good”.

With just a week to go until the Fortnite World Cup gets underway in New York City, many are hoping for improvements to editing mechanics, to ensure the quickest player is rewarded for their talents.

How to unlock Terminator T-800 and Sarah Connor skins in Fortnite

The Fortnite Season 5 crossovers keep on coming. It’s been one hell of a ride so far, and it’s continuing with two iconic Terminator characters, T-800 and Sarah Connor, launching off the Battle Bus. Here’s how you can pick them up.

When will the crossovers end in Fortnite? Well, at this rate, maybe not even when Season 5 does.

Epic has really turned up the ante by working with a bunch of different franchises and dropping them on the island. From God of War to Star Wars to The Walking Dead, if you can think of a pop-culture franchise, it’s probably in Fortnite.

Now, Terminator can add itself to that list. You can now drop out of the Battle Bus as either T-800 or Sarah Connor. You can even live the movies out yourself, trying to chase Connor as a T-800, or save Earth.

Terminator T-800 and Sarah Connor Fornite skins cost

There’s nothing special you have to do to get the Fortnite x Terminator crossover skins. All you need is a little bit of cash to splash.

You can pick up each of the skins individually for 1,800 (Sarah Connor) or 1,500 (T-800) V-Bucks respectively in the Item Shop. However, if you want the whole bundle, it’ll set you back 2,800 ⁠— but it comes with some great savings if you do so!

  • Future War Bundle: 2,800 V-Bucks
  • Sarah Connor: 1,800 V-Bucks
  • T-800: 1,500 V-Bucks
  • Techno-Grip Axe: 800 V-Bucks
  • Cyberdyne Salute: 300 V-Bucks

You will also get the exclusive T-800 Endoskeleton Arm and HK Skynet Uplink backblings, as well as the Combat Knife pickaxe if you buy the Future War Bundle, so it’s definitely the best value for money out of the bunch.

It’s unclear when the crossover skins will depart the Item Shop, so get in quick. They may never “be back.”
