LG SypherPK has an interesting idea to improve Fortnite’s editing

Editing in Fortnite is the high-level skill that separates great builders from good ones, but some issues with editing can make it frustrating to change builds.

When trying to edit quickly, especially with high ping or latency, players have found that they fire off random shots or struggle to open editing altogether.

That’s because, opening editing and confirming the edit are the same button, which makes it a bit too easy to make mistakes, especially in a heated battle when most edits are used.

Luminosity Gaming’s SypherPK has a solution.

Instead of hitting the same button twice to open and close the editing of a building, have a player hold down the button to stay in editing, make their edits, then release the button to confirm the edit.

This fairly simple solution could be a nice quality of life improvement, especially as pro players continue to increase the speed of their builds.

This solution would most benefit people with high ping, basically the entire middle of North America where servers are often spotty.

That delay in the high ping situations makes editing so inconsistent that the risk isn’t worth it in many situations.

Utilizing hold and release would make editing more consistent, and could easily be toggled on and off in the settings.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
