St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17 and it looks like Fortnite is starting the festivities early by adding rainbows into the game.

Fortnite has shown a tendency to celebrate various holidays as they happen and the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day is no different.

St. Patrick’s Day is an Irish holiday and is commonly associated with leprechauns. Fortnite looks to be hinted at an upcoming event on the actual St. Patrick’s Day, by adding rainbows into the game.

It looks like reports have started coming in of rainbows appearing in Fortnite very recently. We do know Epic Games has something planned for St. Patrick’s Day if the leaks are anything to go by.

Dataminers have revealed a new LTM coming called ‘All Green’ which will be available in the solo, duos and squads playlists. All of the loot in the game will be green with the exception of Treasure Map loot.

The rainbows are probably being added in as a way to build hype for the event because Fortnite manages to always tell a story without having an actual storyline.

If the datamine is true, then we can look for the ‘All Green’ event to kick off sometime tomorrow, March 17.

When Tfue and Cloak first noticed the rainbow they couldn’t actually remember if it was new or not. 

“Was that rainbow always there?” asked Cloak. “Hell no, that shit wasn’t always there,” responded Tfue after he saw it for the first time.

Then the two finally came to the conclusion that Fortnite is likely gearing up for the St. Patricks Day event.

Twitch streamer Dakotaz was also confused by the rainbow appearing suddenly.

Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.

Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
