The Fortnite community has been given a task by the Autumn Queen in hopes of unlocking a new animated Wrap but some players are starting to think that goal is unreachable.

There’s an animated weapon Wrap called Falling Leaf and it’s an excellent way to get into the fall spirit. Players have until December 1 to earn enough points as a community to unlock this wrap for everyone.

Epic Games set the goal at 2,500,000,000 which seems like an incredibly high number, but when you think about the number of Fortnite players around the world, it doesn’t seem as bad.

However, some are beginning to question if the quest is even possible as with just over two days to go, the community hasn’t even cracked the halfway point.

This doesn’t mean it’s impossible, but it goes to show that players may have underestimated the amount of time it takes to unlock this Wrap.

Players have taken their doubts to Reddit where many other players chimed in and shared similar doubts.

Reddit user Cactus1872 thought that the low total was due to the Thanksgiving holiday and players would be able to get back on track, but not everyone shared the same sentiment.

Some players questioned the timing of this quest, as it comes shortly after news the inaugural season of Chapter 2 would be extended until February. Many players have already completed every tier of their Battle Pass so perhaps this a ploy by Epic to get players to keep playing.

Is it even possible that we can earn this wrap? 2 days seems like a very short time to get 2.5 BILLION points, while we are sitting at less than a fifth of the way there. Hopefully this is because of Thanksgiving and now people will play more. Definitely going to be tough because people are working. from FortNiteBR

As it stands right now, the way to earn points revolves around healing teammates, but players aren’t rewarded with a whole lot of points for doing so, with the most points being rewarded for just playing with a friend.

There’s still a lot of time for players to get this Wrap unlocked so it’s definitely too early to give up all hope now, even if some already have. Even if the goal isn’t reached, it’s hard to imagine a world where Epic doesn’t extend the duration so everyone is able to get it.

Epic made this competition with the intention of giving away a free Wrap, so it stands to reason they might offer a boost. It might be time to worry when the contest starts winding down and players are nowhere near the goal.

There’s not actually a way to keep track of the quest in-game, so you’ll have to do so on a special website made just for it. You still have plenty of time to earn points so do your part for the community!


Has LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
