The Fortnite community have been clamoring for an update to the locker for an incredibly long time, and one player’s take on a new locker concept has got the rest of the player base wishing it were added to the game.

All Fortnite players want is a simplified system to make themselves look good. Well, maybe that’s not the only thing, but an update to the Fortnite locker has still been highly anticipated by the community.

Specifically, fans have been asking for an updated user interface for the Locker for ages, so they can better organize all the cosmetic items that they have earned or bought since the battle royale’s inception.

Players have longed for more options when it comes to customization, as well as other features like presets and an option to change the appearance of the character in addition to the outfit.

A user on the FortniteBR subreddit, ‘AitorWesterhof,’ has officially whetted the appetites of players who have been looking for a new UI, with their fresh concept for the weapon and skin tab that they’re calling Fortniter Locker V2.

AitorWesterhof included the idea of presets, which would give players the option to cycle through multiple presets of cosmetic combinations the player designs themselves. This would mark a significant update from the current system, which only allows for one active set at the moment.

The user also added an upgrade to the Edit Style options on each skin, which would allow players to select the appearance of the character for cosmetics which don’t cover the model’s entire face or body. This is an option not currently included in Epic’s live Locker system.

On top of all that, AitorWesterhof introduced a Themes pack idea, which lets players cycle through preset packs of loading screens, menu music, and menu themes. 

Other members of the Fortnite community loved what they say from the Locker V2 concept. Some called it “amazing,” while others wondered when something like that could be added to the game.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
