Twitch star Tyler ‘Fortnite match after numerous updates have made popular landing spots less viable.

Epic Games’ latest patches for their battle royale have made numerous controversial changes which have led some players to approach the early game way different than before.

Ninja and his squad had landed at a popular landing destination in Retail Row only to be met with instant chaos, leading the team of streamers to scramble after contesting multiple engagements.

Ninja TwitchNinja is a veteran of handling tricky situations in Fortnite, but even he thinks some points of interest are terrible to start from.

Retail Row? More like Death Row

Unfortunately for Ninja’s squad, they were quickly overwhelmed and subsequently eliminated as pressure from all sides started closing in.

After quickly losing out in a heated warzone, the Twitch star gave his thoughts on Retail Row after the popular siphon mechanic was taken out of the game.

“Why is Retail the worst spot in the world to land, man,” Ninja said. “There was only one time Retail was a good place to land, that was when siphon was in the game.”

Worst places to land

The streamer wasn’t done as he gave his opinion on the places he definitely wouldn’t recommend players to land at the start of a game

“Here are the worst places to land in the game right now,” Ninja said after getting eliminated. “Pleasant Park, Retail Row and Tilted Towers.”

As to why he felt that way, Ninja noted the disproportionate amount of resources a player could scavenge from the points of interest to the players that land there which instantly creates a frenzy.

“All those places are like hot drops that have like not enough mats and loot that actually get healing and materials when you come out of it if another squad lands there,” Ninja said. “Heck, Pleasant [Park], you can come out of there with no shield. That place is terrible.

Even though those point of interests have been a big part of the game’s history, it doesn’t look like Ninja would advise to land there for players who’re looking to get a Victory Royale.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
