These Fortnite trap concepts are exactly what Ninja is looking for

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has been talking about his desire to see new traps introduced to Fortnite and some of these concepts might be exactly what he’s looking for. 

Four new exciting trap concept designs have been posted to the Fortnite subreddit and they all offer an innovative twist to those which are already offered in the battle royale game. 

Many Reddit users have been reacting to the post, with some proving to be more popular than others. They include a Decoy Chest, Flame Grill Trap, Goop Trap and an Electro Trap. 

The creator of these concepts, Maxwell755, also provided a brief description with each of them in his post, giving us an idea as to how each of them would work in the game. 

Firstly, the Decoy Trap – as you would expect from the name – would appear to be a normal chest for those who don’t know it’s a decoy, however, when opened they explode and give tricked players 70 damage. 

The second, a Flame Grill Trap, would burn all enemies who step on top of it and cause one damage for every second stepped on it for a limited time.

The other two traps, which are called the Goop Trap and Electro Trap, work on the same basis as the traps already included in the game. 

They require a player to step on top of them, much like a Spike Trap, with the first making the victim easier to be found, by covering players in bright slime and causing them to have loud squishy footsteps. 

“The goop trap actually sounds like a really good idea! Doesn’t really seem OP to me and it would be a neat addition to Fortnite” one user commented.

The Electro Trap, though, would slowly drain away your shield by zapping them with electricity for a period of time. It wouldn’t impact normal health. 

“None are good in my opinion” another user said. “Only noobs will fall for a decoy chest. It would have to be in a chest spawn location or it will look out of place, and if it’s a different tint it’s going to be really obvious. Can’t see people going out of their way to setup a decoy chest for a potential 70 damage.”

Fortnite Crew membership allows players to get the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins and other monthly benefits for a set price. The list of rewards will update each month, but it’s made a promising start to kick off Season 5. 

Epic Games have confirmed that the new system will come into action alongside the game’s first major update of Season 5. Instead of having to purchase individual skins from the Fortnite Item Shop like usual, the developers are offering guaranteed rewards to Crew members that cannot be obtained any other way.

Monthly subscriptions have been all the rage since Netflix rose to prominence, but now many major players in the gaming world have followed suit. Xbox has its Ultimate Game Pass, for example, and now Fortnite’s creators have come up with their own.

Let’s run through what’s included.

Fortnite Crew membership price and start date

One of the most important factors in a player making up their mind about buying Fortnite Crew will be the price. The full price list can be seen below, for various currencies:

  • $11.99
  • £9.99

This looks to be pretty reasonable, if you consider the Battle Pass is usually $9.50 anyway. Aside from that, it’s also worth noting that the Fortnite Crew membership won’t be available until December 2, which is when Season 5 launches.

What’s included? (December 2020)

The Fortnite Crew outfit pack for December will include skins and cosmetics unobtainable in any other way.

According to an official blog post from Epic Games, the Fortnite Crew membership will include the following:

  • Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass
  • An exclusive monthly Crew Pack
  • 1,000 V-Bucks each month

These rewards will vary from month to month in terms of what’s included in the skin pack, though based on how obsessive the community has become over skins and cosmetics, it will likely be a popular event to open it each time.

They said in an official statement: “Monthly Crew Packs always contain a new Outfit along with at least one accessory. All items are exclusive to Fortnite Crew members.”

How to get Fortnite Crew rewards

The Fortnite Crew rewards will differ slightly month on month, in terms of what’s included in the Outfit Pack.

Epic Games have confirmed all you have to do, once you’re all signed up, is log into your Primary Platform each monthly subscription period to access your subscription content. This will vary from month to month in terms of what’s included, though generally the V-Bucks and Battle Pass will be guaranteed.

Is it cross platform?

In a series of frequently answered questions, Epic Games have confirmed a player’s Crew account will only work for their primary platform. For example, if you sign up for the Crew on Xbox One or Series X|S, it won’t carry over to PlayStation 4/5.

On the subject, they have said: “Your Subscription is associated with the platform on which you purchased it (your “Primary Platform”) until it is canceled and is not transferable. Be sure to choose the platform (e.g., Xbox, PlayStation, Switch) you purchase your Subscription on carefully. You’ll be able to access the items you receive from the Subscription across different platforms, but the V-Bucks you receive may not be redeemable on other platforms.”

We will update this every month and add new details about Fortnite Crew rewards, as and when that information is made available.
