Reddit User Creates a Brilliant Fortnite ‘Paddle Boat’ Concept to Help Players Traverse Loot Lake

A Reddit user has created a clever ‘Paddle Boat’ concept in Fortnite: Battle Royale which would allow players to traverse Loot Lake in a quicker fashion.

Fortnite: Battle Royale has quickly ascended through the gaming community since its release in 2017 for its ‘free-to-play nature, and the ability to innovate with new content added on a weekly basis.

Epic Games has maintained a strict schedule for patches and update in Fortnite, providing fans with the opportunity to have something ‘fresh’ to play or use, and allowing for the ‘meta’ of the game to grow over time.

One of the most recent additions, a Shopping Cart which allows players to traverse the map in a much quicker speed than walking or running, has gained a substantial amount of notoriety from fans that have loved the incredibly unique feature.

A Reddit user by the name of sierrasloth took the Shopping Cart to the next level by crafting up the idea for Paddle Boats on Loot Lake in order to allow players to comfortably navigate across the water, rather than needing to build or slowly walk the distance from end to end.

The ‘Paddle Boats’ would potentially handle like the Shopping Carts by allowing two players to ride at once, along with randomly spawning on the edges of Loot Lake in-game.

While the possibility of being able to traverse Loot Lake in a quicker fashion has been theorized in the past, it is unknown if Epic Games has any plans to implement such a feature.

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.
