NickEh30 Has a Suggestion to Improve the Waypoints in Fortnite Battle Royale

Popular YouTuber NickEh30 has suggested a new feature for Fortnite Battle Royale which would see a change to waypoints and make them significantly more useful.

Fortnite Battle Royale has taken the gaming world by storm since its release in September of 2017 and has quickly become the most talked about game of 2018.

With such rapid growth, new players are joining the Fortnite train at a rate of knots but they often find themselves heavily outskilled by the players that have already had months of practice.

The learning curve can certainly be a steep one, and popular Fortnite YouTuber, and streamer, NickEh30 has now put forward an idea that could make life a little bit easier for less knowledgeable players.

The suggestion wouldn’t have any direct impact on gameplay. Instead, it would bring a change to the waypoints (or markers) that players place on the map when they want to go to a specific destination.

NickEh30 thinks that it would be interesting to implement a distance measurement on these markers so that players could know how long it would take to reach various destinations, and perhaps even predict whether they can outrun the storm.

This suggestion would allow players to make more informed, smart decisions when trying to loot and outrun the storm, but the YouTuber does point out that it could also make life too easy.

Some people would say that predicting the speed of the storm, and knowing the game well enough to predict where you can get to in a certain time, is a skill that should be honed through practice and multiple hours of play time.

However, the idea is certainly an interesting one and might even be something that Epic Games could implement in a Limited Time Mode as a test before deciding whether to make it a feature or not.


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.
