Professional Fortnite players and streamers got to where they are by being resourceful, quick-thinking and, of course, highly skilled, but their latest method of farming resources might be the most ingenious idea they’ve ever had!
It’s no secret collecting materials and loot can be one of the more tedious aspects of playing Fortnite Battle Royale, but what if you could get all the benefits without putting in any of the groundwork?
Well, some of the more popular players are now using a new system to collect everything that they need while they practice their one-on-one matches in the popular Playground mode: Loot Goblins.
Yes, you read that correctly, Loot Goblins. To put it simply, Loot Goblins are moderators or long-time viewers of top Fortnite streamers that join their lobbies to do nothing other than collect loot for the pros.
One Reddit user, urnamesprobbetter, made a post about the strange new occurrence, saying: “Has anybody else seen pros have two people loot for them while they 1 vs 1 in playground mode? It makes sense but I just saw it for the first time and it’s fucking hilarious watching them wander around like little minions.”
Another user responded to say that, as a moderator, they can either “watch the streamer farming for 30 minutes” or “help a bit from time to time” and “actually watch him build-fighting without the stupid ‘anyone got shields?’ shit.”
Personally, we think this is a stroke of genius from the professional players and we can’t wait to see a ‘Loot Goblin’ in action!
