A new set of challenges are coming to Fortnite Battle Royale, associated with the ‘Lil Kev’ back bling, and the return of loot lake.

Update v6.21 went live for Fortnite on November 1, signalling data miners to get to work digging through the new game files to see what they could uncover.

One such file is peculiarly named ‘Schedule_LTM_LilKevin’, and while specific details are not clear, it appears that it will contain a new set of challenges.

Also discovered in game files was the ‘Lil Kev’ back bling. A strange goggly-eyed object, seemingly inspired by the cube fragments, with the description “Loves to play in the lake”.

Whatever this event or challenges entail, it seems that completing them will earn you this Lil Kev back bling, for completing three tasks:

  • Gain 5000 XP
  • Outlive Opponents (500)
  • Play Matches (15)

On completion of these challenges, you will earn the Lil Kev back bling (see below), and perhaps some other XP related rewards.

There are no details as to when these challenges go live, however other leaks also suggest the return of Loot Lake is imminent, with new islands added.

Given the description of the Lil Kev backbling, it’s possible that these challenges will go live following the in game live event on Sunday, November 4, which is when Loot Lake is expected to return too.

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.
