One avid Fortnite fan has designed an incredible ‘character creator’ concept that would be perfect for the upcoming second season of Chapter 2. 

It’s fair to say that a large portion of the Fortnite community feels the game is stagnant at the moment, as they await Season 2 of Chapter 2.

Despite the significant changes made when Chapter 2 launched back in October, a number of content creators appear frustrated at the lack of innovation they are seeing. While player counts are hard to come by, Epic Games’ falling revenue is indicative of fewer players.

The second season of Fortnite Chapter 2 is set to drop in mid-February.

One feature that would inject some life into Fortnite Chapter 2 would be more freedom to design character skins.

While there are no confirmed plans to bring this to Fortnite anytime soon, one player has devised an awesome concept for how it could look in-game. 

Shared to Reddit on February 8, the concept goes into insane detail as to customization options players could have. 

Details up for selection include character gender, facial hair and headgear. While not exhaustive, the concept was widely praised, amassing nearly 10,000 upvotes at the time of writing.

By the end of the example video, the Jonesy default skin was barely recognizable as a Jonesy.

Blue hair and shiny grey arms were paired with a medieval knight like torso, allowing incredible creativity away from the designs made at Epic Games. 

One respondent raised an excellent point, however, floating the question of why Epic would enable a feature that would potentially lower the sales of skins they add to the game.

We’ve already seen Epic receptive of fan designs, with player POI creations being implemented into the game over the course of its life.

Whether or not they would be equally open to a ‘character creator’ feature remains unclear, but it’s obvious that such a tool would be more than welcomed by the community, who are crying out for innovation to Fortnite Chapter 2.

Fortnite Flare Gun return leaked with major buff

A new Fortnite leak has claimed that the Flare Gun could be set to make a return in the near future, and it would be receiving quite a substantial buff too. 

As Fortnite seasons unfold, weapons and items are regularly cycled in and out of the loot pool – either for being too strong, too weak, or not fitting the theme of the new patch.

This means that some fan-favorite weapons might disappear from the game for one reason or another, either to return at some point later in the future or to never be seen again. 

In the case of the Flare Gun, which was initially added to the battle royale back in the v13.20 update but it was removed at the start of Chapter 2, Season 4. With some fans hoping to see it return, especially given the new fire mechanics, it appears as if Epic have got something up their sleeve.

The Flare Gun first appeared in a small short video from Epic Games.

Following the v14.30 update, which gave a buff to the Combat Shotgun and also brought the Rally Royale limited-time mode to the party, leakers uncovered a handful of changes coming in the future.

This includes the Flare Gun, which as leaker Mang0e_ pointed out, could be set to return to the battle royale after a spell in the vault, but with a little bit of a boost too. 

“The flare gun may be coming back to core modes soon,” the leaker tweeted on October 15. “The duration for marking enemies was re-added and increased to 15 seconds.”

While this is not set in the stone, as the leaker tweeted that it may return, some fans will be hoping that the Flare Gun does return – especially given its reported buff.

This increase in time with marking enemies would certainly make players think twice about ignoring the chance to use the Flare Gun. But, as ever, it’ll be up to Epic to make the final call.
