With Fortnite Battle Royale’s Ice Storm event in full swing, a new set of challenges have been unveiled on January 23 that could leave players scratching their heads.

Much like the Fortnitemares event during Halloween, the Ice Storm event comes complete with daily challenges that mostly center around the zombies known as the Ice Legion this time around.

While some of these challenges, such as “Deal damage to Ice Legion with Shotguns or SMGs” challenge, others don’t seem as straightforward at first glance.

Such is the case with one of the newest challenges titled “Destroy elite members of the Ice Legion.”

Many of the previous challenges have revolved around the Ice Legion, but this is the first mention we’ve seen of the “elite members,” which could be a bit confusing.

Thankfully, the solution is actually quite simple as the elite members are identical to the normal members except for the fact that they glow. You’ll know when you’ve found one since they take a few extra shots to kill as compared to the normal Ice Legion.

You can spot an elite Ice Legion member by their glowing skin.

They will appear less often than normal members of the Ice Legion, but they can still be found at any Ice Shard around the map.

Elite members do, however, tend to show up in greater numbers for Shards that are just about to be destroyed, meaning a bit of finesse will go a long way to maximizing your time and completing this as quickly as possible.

With Epic Games also tweaking the spawn rate of the Ice Legion in a hotfix on January 22, these elites should show up more often across the board in the early game.

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.
