While Fortnite update v15.20 added a bunch of new features to the game, including two new weapons and more, one of the smaller but more significant changes came in the form of a “disable pre-edits” option, which has been a highly sought-after feature in the community for a while.

While most Fortnite players are talking about the two new weapons added in the v15.20 patch, another major subject is that of the new option to disable pre-edits, which has been heavily requested by players for several years now.

But how does the new option actually function and how can you turn it off? Here’s everything you need to know about the small but important feature.

What is a pre-edit in Fortnite and what does disabling it change?

 

Epic Games
When pre-edits are disabled, the option to edit before you build the object isn’t available.

Pre-editing a structure basically means you have the ability to edit the shape/design of the structure before you actually place it and start building.

While this might seem good on paper, it can lead to many unfortunate mishaps while building at a quick rate, like unintended builds, which could be the difference between surviving or falling during a gunfight.

For years, many fans and top streamers, like SypherPK, have been calling for the feature to be removed, which would basically eliminate the option for mistakes when building, forcing players to put down a specific panel before they can edit it. Now, Epic Games have finally made the request a reality.

How it works is simple: if you have “disable pre-edits” on, you simply won’t see the edit button show up when you’re on your build screen. Once you place an object, then the option to edit will become available.

Epic Games
The option to disable pre-edits can be found in the settings.

Finding the option is very simple, however, considering Fortnite’s settings can be an intimidating, jumbled mess at times, it may be a bit confusing if you don’t know where to look:

  1. Open the Fortnite menu
  2. Select the “Settings” option
  3. Tab over to the “Game” section
  4. Scroll down to the “Building section
  5. Find the “Disable Pre-Edit Option” (it should be the second option) and turn it on
  6. Apply your changes
  7. The changes should take effect the next time you exit the menu

The best part is that, if you’re not sure whether or not you want the option to be disabled, you can turn it on or off mid-match without a problem.

All in all, it’s a pretty nice feature, and it’s recommended that you try it out a couple of times and see if it improves your game at all, especially if you’re someone who has difficulty building with pre-edits enabled.

SypherPK has already found quite a few tips, tricks, and glitches in Fortnite Season 5, but none are as hilarious as this one at Coral Castle that lets players ‘float’ in the air.

Fortnite Season 5 is well-polished, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t tricks and glitches that players can exploit. Game-breaking ones like being able to stay in the storm forever inevitably get patched.

However, smaller ones are more difficult to iron out, and nobody finds them better than Ali ‘SypherPk’ Hassan. He’s shared many crazy tips and tricks in the past. Now, he’s at it again with a glitch that lets players ‘float.’ He showed it off in a recent video, and the results are hilarious.

If you want to know how to do it, here’s a quick guide.

How to perform the ‘float’ glitch in Fortnite Season 5

To begin, you’ll need to make your way to Coral Castle. It’s not a popular landing spot by any means. SypherPK has only landed there about five times in total himself due to the lack of loot. However, the float glitch makes it more compelling.

Take note of what looks like a small pink pebble floating in the air. It’s difficult to spot at first, but once you’ve seen it in the video below, you’ll know what it is. Strangely, you can stand on it, even though it’s tiny.

Build your way up and perch yourself on top of the pebble. Then, knock all the platforms down and stay up there, which creates the illusion of floating. It’s no cheap gimmick, though. It’s an excellent spot to rain down some bullets on unsuspecting foes, even if it leaves you a bit vulnerable.

SypherPK managed to snag a bunch of eliminations while standing up there. He even managed to get a couple of early shots in and then swoop down on opponents while they were recovering.

SypherPK’s ‘float’ glitch probably won’t win you a game. However, it looks like a lot of fun and will likely help you secure some easy eliminations.

In the end, being innovative is a part of the game, and this glitch takes full advantage of that. 

Plus, imagine the look on your opponent’s face when they realize where they got shot from.
