The second and third Showtime challenges in Fortnite Battle Royale have gone live and players can now complete them to unlock additional rewards.

The second of the challenge set is very straightforward and simple as all players need to do to complete it is visit the Showtime venue in Pleasant Park.

This venue consists of a giant stage built on top of the football field, which is where popular EDM DJ Marshmello will be performing his live in-game concert.

Completing this challenge is important because it rewards players with the ‘Keep It Mello’ emote that is not only a cool one to have but is also necessary for completing the third and final challenge. 

This is what the event stage looks like in Pleasant Park, so just standing on top of it like this should be enough to do the trick.

For those interested, here’s a video of how the emote look in-game, and it will likely be used by many in the crowd at Marshmello’s performance on February 2. 

This then brings us to the third challenge, which requires players to “use Keep It Mello at a trucker’s oasis, ice cream parlor, and a frozen lake,” all of which are distinct locations on the Fortnite map.

For this, players simply have to visit the Truck ‘N’ Oasis truck stop and SOFDEEZ ice cream parlor, both in the bottom left corner of the map, as well as the frozen lake just north of Polar Peak in the southwestern snow biome. 

Players must do the Keep It Mello emote at each of these three locations in order to complete the challenge and earn their reward. 

Once the emote is done at all three of the above locations, the challenge will be marked as complete and this Marshy Smasher pickaxe will be awarded.

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.
