Epic Games have made tons of waves with their inclusion of the X-4 Stormwing in Fortnite, but one idea might relieve tons of pressure from the sky in the late stages of the game.

The X-4 Stormwing has received tons of backlash from the community since its release on December 6, and in it’s two weeks of life has already been updated twice for multiple reasons, but a solution to one of its biggest gripes might not be in an update to the vehicle itself.

In a Reddit post, user barffyy suggests to add a weather condition applicable to planes as the storm closes into its final destination.

Epic GamesAn unfortunate side effect of the Stormwing has been blatant camping in the sky.

The change would make flying a plane increasingly dangerous as a match carries on.

Barffyy suggests that the weather exhibit turbulence as the storm rages, but the high winds would also be an indicator for the pilot that lightning is soon to strike the aircraft.

Although the damage to the craft wasn’t specified, the idea could go really far to dwindling the amount of planes that simply coast to the final circles.

In the final circles, have the storm give planes “turbulence” and strike the plane with lightning, chipping away its health from r/FortniteCompetitive

Note, the user’s idea would damage the plane even if flying within the zone, which might seem unbalanced but so is seeing Jonesy cruise to the final circle with only a Pump Shotgun and no mats.

The change seems harsh, but with the right damage from lightning strikes the idea could be smoothly integrated into live servers.


Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
