Fortnite fan designs “Shield Shower” as a compliment to Campfires

A fan of Fortnite has designed a new concept that functions similar to the Campfire, except the item would restore shield instead of health.

Known as the Shield Shower, the new item would give two shield for every second that you stand under it, up to a maximum of 50.

The Campfire works the same way, healing players at a rate of two HP per second and it lasts for 25 seconds.

One commenter even suggested the shower can be balanced by putting out a Campfire if a player attempts to use both at the same time.

Epic has a history of listening to player feedback and ideas on new concepts, so it is not out of the question to see something like the Shower Shield implemented in a future patch.

The idea of a shield equivalent to the Campfire mechanic has been around for a long time in the Fortnite community and something similar may already be in development. A past redditor had the same shield concept with a kiddie pool instead of a shower.

Fortnite pro Nate Hill also has a suggestion for Epic and it is related to the lack of ranking system for their esport events, he thinks they could take a hint from how professional golf works.

Epic has also been busy correcting accidental bans, issuing apologies and handing out V-bucks to accounts that were effected by the mistakes.


Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

Fortnitemares always brings some new skins to the battle royale.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
