FaZe’s Tfue Demonstrates New Fast-Farming Method in Fortnite That Works Better Than Before

FaZe Clan professional Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has discovered a way to improve the current fast-farming method in Fortnite.

The four-time Friday Fortnite champion is known for his innovative approach to the game, often looking for new and efficient ways to get things done.

The fast-farming method involves quickly activating and cancelling an emote while swinging a pickaxe to mine resources. 

The action increases the pace at which the pickaxe can be used, often allowing players to swing twice as fast.

While this new method also involves the use of an emote, there is a key difference in the keybindings. The result keeps the efficiency of the fast-farming while reducing other issues with button delays and reloading.

“There is a new way that I fast-farm, and I wanted to share with you guys. Go to your keybinds. Do ‘locker emote one,’ so whatever emote you fast-farm with, put in on ‘mouse wheel down,’ go to ‘alternative crouch keybind’ and put in ‘mouse wheel up.’ So once you hit, scroll your mouse wheel down and then up. […] So this is way easier, and that way you don’t have to worry about emoting and reload bugs and stuff like that.”

While the fast-farming method does increase resource mining efficiency, many view it as an in-game glitch that is being exploited.

Although Epic Games have not explicitly stated that the use of the glitch is a bannable offense, they have made it clear that doing it is frowned upon and could ultimately lead to consequences.

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.
