The new Creative mode in Fortnite Battle Royale is a perfect place for players to let their imagination go loose, and one creation has received some high praise after it was posted on Reddit. 

Reddit user ‘MelancholicKB‘ showed off his new amazing creation called ‘Cliffside Cabins,’ and it certainly already looks good enough to be featured in the actual Fortnite map.

The new location features a variety of lodge-style structures built into the the side of an icy cliff not dissimilar from the ones that can be currently found in-game.

The location very much has a village theme to it, including a small central area located at the bottom of the cliff that features a clock tower, grand entrance staircase, and a lit Christmas tree. 

The user toured the new town in a video that was posted on Reddit on December 25, offering a great Christmas gift to the Fortnite Creative community. 

At first glance, it’s quite obvious that the player spent a lot of time working on this beautiful area, as each of the structures and objects have their own unique design, color scheme, and shape, all of which perfectly fall into one overall village theme.

The location is so well-made, in fact, that it’s almost too perfect to have players land and start demolishing things to acquire resources and loot, or have full-fledged gunfights that can wreak havoc across the carefully crafted town.

There is good news for all those who would like to see Cliffside Cabins added to Fortnite, and it’s hard to imagine there being anyone who wouldn’t, as it could be next in line to be featured at The Block in the northeast corner of the map.

While this location currently may not fit the size specifications of The Block, the creator could make small alterations so that it would, after which it would certainly need to garner major attention across social media to be considered for The Block. 

However, with snow now covering the entire map, having Cliffside Cabins at The Block would not only make perfect sense, it would also add a beautiful and expertly made location that players are sure to enjoy.

Why Fortnite players want “trash” vehicle challenges removed

Fortnite players are getting frustrated with vehicle challenges, with some of them asking Epic Games to remove them from the popular battle royale entirely – here’s why.

Vehicles have become a staple of Fortnite, and The Island wouldn’t be the same without them. Whether you want to cruise the roads in a car, take to the waters in a motorboat, or even zoom around the skies in a plane, you can do that (unless they get vaulted, that is).

But while they may be fun to ride, they’re not necessarily going to help you win; there’s no respawning in Fortnite’s battle royale mode, so driving a noisy vehicle that will get the attention of all your opponents isn’t always the best idea.

Despite this, vehicles often feature in the game’s challenges, which are essential to earn that all-important XP to help level up the Battle Pass – and it’s something players are getting frustrated with.

Most recently, the Season 5 Week 7 legendary challenge requires players to ‘Damage Opponents in Vehicles’, with quite a few tiers to tick off. Completing this challenge in full requires a total of 2,500 damage to opponents in vehicles, which is no easy task.

In a Reddit thread titled “Can we stop with the vehicle challenges please?” several Fortnite players have left comments airing their frustration about the constant vehicle-based quests and how hard they are to finish.

“The vehicle challenges are absolute trash,” wrote one player, while another added: “The game’s just becoming more and more of a grind, the legendary challenges have been a joke this season.”

The main problem people seem to have with vehicle challenges is that once they go live, no one wants to drive as they’ll become a target for other players wanting to complete the challenge. As a result, you have 100 players waiting to damage vehicles, and no one actually driving them.

Besides this frustration, other players have argued that there aren’t enough vehicles located around the map to be able to complete the challenge in the first place, and to make matters worse, there are no vehicle-based LTMs to get easy damage in either.

Players are calling for vehicle challenges to be removed from Fortnite.

“Just this challenge existing means people are not going to drive vehicles as much because everyone is going to be waiting for someone else to get in a vehicle so that they can shoot them,” wrote one player.

Another added: “I thought the mission was to deal damage WHILE riding in a vehicle. But since it’s to deal damage TO people in a vehicle, I’m thinking ‘Who the hell would make themselves a target like that?'”

A third pointed out that many vehicles are riddled with bugs and glitches, which makes having to use them even more frustrating: “No one’s riding in them unless they have to because they’re really buggy currently.”

Whether Epic will take heed of these concerns remains to be seen, although it seems unlikely right now.

They did recently promise to ‘look into’ claims that the customizable superhero skin was “unfair” and effectively “pay-to-win” as it allowed players to hide at night, so they are definitely listening when needed.
