Playground Mode might have been disabled just hours after its introduction to Fortnite Battle Royale but Thiefs still managed to get some awesome clips of professional building fights before that happened.

The Playground Mode was one of the most exciting additions to Fortnite in recent memory but it was disabled just hours after being released due to some issues that Epic Games needed to address.


The idea behind Playground Mode is that it will allow players to practice on their own, or as a squad, and hone their Fortnite skills with significantly better resources, weapons, friendly fire, and unlimited respawns.

While not a private match, or fully customizable mode, this is the closest that Fortnite players have had to a perfect training environment so far, and professional players were particularly excited to get their hands on it.


The pros already have incredible abilities but Playground Mode offers the opportunity to put these on display and sharpen them.

One player that actually did manage to get his hands on the mode while it was live is Thiefs. Luckily for those of us that didn’t get to try it out, he’s uploaded a video that shows it in all of its glory as he has some insane building fights with other top players:

So, that’s what Playground Mode will allow players to do if they’re talented enough.


Of course, most of us won’t be able to replicate anything close to what Thiefs did, but using the mode to practice might help some players to get that good in the future.

The last update on the Playground Mode downtime stated that the developers ares till working on a fix and hoping to have more information for players on June 29th.

Fortnite leakers have revealed a new mobility item called the “Broom Box” that could be the next feature added in Season 4, ahead of the upcoming Fortnitemares Halloween event.

Fortnite has introduced plenty of unusual vehicles and other methods for players to get around the map, with the likes of ziplines, rifts, and more making their appearances in previous seasons.


However, another mode of transport could be on the way, with leaks now pointing to a new mobility item being added in the upcoming Fortnitemares update for Halloween.

The Fortnitemares event could see some new items added to the game.

Many of the changes made so far in Season 4 have been based around the Marvel characters and their unique abilities but, as Halloween is drawing closer, Epic Games are gearing up for the Fortnitemares event.


While little has been confirmed about the update, Fortnite leaker HYPEX has revealed that there is potential for a new “Broom Box” mobility item in the event after finding codenames in the game files.

The prominent leaker claimed that these brooms would be classed as a consumable, meaning that players might only have a limited time to fly on them compared to previous items like the hoverboard.

These brooms have been rumored to work in a similar way to the Lightsabers that were previously added to Fortnite, with a chest expected to appear on the map for players to collect the consumable item.


A new emote for the Fortnitemares event has also been leaked, with data miner FNBRUnreleased giving players an early look at the “Witch Way” animation, which features a magical broomstick.

While the upcoming mobility item will likely look a bit different from this emote’s animation, it still gives players a glimpse at what to expect from the new broomsticks.

As of now, it is still unclear just when this potential item will be added to Fortnite but with Halloween only weeks away, players won’t have to wait much longer to find out.
