Nick Eh 30 Suggests a New Fortnite Concept for Finding Building Materials in Chests

Nick Eh 30 has shared an idea for Fortnite Battle Royale that would give players a chance of finding a large stack of material inside a chest.

The popular YouTuber prefaced his suggestion by saying that there is a low chance of opening  a Gold Scar in a chest, before stating that he would like a similar chance of finding 300 wood, metal, or brick.

Nick says that it would be like opening Legendary item – an occurrence that is unlikely but a possibility and something that “you’d have to be lucky to get”.

Due to the building mechanics in Fortnite, finding and collecting the materials required to create forts and bases is of great importance for any player that wants to make it to the late stages of a game.

You can harvest building materials from the world around you, which can take a great deal of time depending on where you land, or get really lucky and find a Supply Llama which grants you 200 of each resource.

Other than that, your best bet for finding resources is to eliminate another player and hope that they are well stocked.

Nick Eh 30’s idea would open up an opportunity to bag yourself a large haul of materials in a matter of seconds, but also add a new aspect of luck and randomness to the chests dotted around the map.

FaZe Clan’s SpaceLyon responded to Nick, saying that he likes the idea but that he’d also love to see Epic Games simply increase the amount of materials you get from harvesting by about 25%.


How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
