Third-party fighting has become quite a hot topic in the Fortnite community, with many frustrated at the prevalence of the practice.

There’s nothing worse than winning a fight in Fortnite only for someone else to come up and kill you after you’ve been weakened by the first fight.

With that in mind, Reddit user ‘coreythedesigner’ came up with an idea for a new game mechanic that could completely change the dynamic of fights in Fortnite.

Specifically aimed at third-party fighting, this concept would make it so that any builds made by the opponent you just eliminated would transfer over to you and your squad.

This is key since it would allow players to quickly edit existing builds instantly, eliminating the need to destroy them in order to build cover of your own.

Idea: When you kill an opponent, their builds editing control would transfer to you and your squad. This would help you maintain control when the inevitable third-party shows up and would move the game along interestingly in skirmishes! from r/FortNiteBR

Instead of being caught in the rough position of winning a fight and being immediately converged upon by an enemy team, players would have plenty of options to defend themselves with this inventive concept.

The idea looks to be a hit on Reddit, with many players agreeing that it’s a great idea that they’d love to see included in the game. The post currently sits on the front page of the official Fortnite Reddit with over 1,200 upvotes.

It seems like the transferring of builds is one of the most talked about issues in Fortnite, as another user also introduced an idea of a trap that would allow players to take over enemy builds.

Epic Games has been known to adopt player concepts into Fortnite, so there’s a good possibility that these could eventually make their way into the game.

The v14.30 update has finally been released for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and it has introduced some secret changes that Epic Games did not include in the latest set of patch notes.

Fortnite’s superhero-themed Season 4 is continuing to deliver fresh content, with even more characters like Daredevil soon to be released in-game, as part of the upcoming Marvel Knockout Super Series.

However, while Epic revealed that there were other tweaks, such as minor buffs for the Combat shotgun, there were a few secret changes that were not revealed in the latest patch notes. Here’s everything you need to know.

While there have been many Marvel heroes added to Fortnite in Season 4, it was also revealed that Galactus would appear in the battle royale as the villain, ahead of the Nexus War event.

It seems as if he has finally been added to the Fortnite map after some eagle-eyed Fortnite fans discovered a change in the map’s skyline, with a bizarre red dot now visible after the 14.30 patch.

Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey revealed that the “distant object” in the sky was Galactus and that he was on his way to the Fortnite island ahead of his showdown with the Avengers and other Marvel characters.

New Black Panther Mythic Ability

Fortnite’s Season 4 also saw the introduction of new Mythic Abilities that players can equip in-game and the latest update, on October 13, added a Black Panther ability called “Kinetic Armor.”

The new power works similarly to the character’s suit in the popular Marvel movies, allowing players to absorb more damage, run faster, and even deal damage to nearby opponents and structures, after it has been activated.

Fortnite YouTuber SypherPK shared gameplay of Black Panther’s Kinetic Armor and revealed that it can be found in the Stark Industries Supply Drones that are scattered across different points-of-interest on the Fortnite map.

Fortnite Holly Hedges map changes

There were also some secret map changes that were not mentioned in Fortnite’s recent patch notes and the v14.30 update saw tweaks to the Superstore near the Holly Hedges POI.

With some Halloween-themed changes expected to arrive in Fortnite in the coming weeks, Epic Games has redecorated the landmark and renamed it the “Hey Boo Megastore.”

While this is one of the first Halloween-based changes so far, it is likely that more will be on the way ahead of the upcoming Fortnitemares Halloween event.

Epic teases Midas’ return to Fortnite

Midas has been one of the biggest characters in Fortnite Chapter 2, but after his attempt to shake up the world in Season 2’s in-game event, he has completely disappeared from the battle royale.

While he was last seen being eaten by a shark in the Season 3 trailer, it seems the mysterious character could be set for a return in the upcoming Halloween event, with his golden chair now appearing in The Authority POI.
