One thing that holds true in virtually every video gaming community is that fans love concept art for their favorite skins, characters and weapons, but Fortnite lends itself to that trend better than most.

As a game that already celebrates everything colorful, cartoon-like, far-fetched and downright wacky, Fortnite provides the perfect building blocks for its massive playerbase to let their imaginations run wild as they design concepts, outfits and more.

Even better, many of the skins that Epic Games design are already so crazy that it’s easy to reimagine them in brilliant, and often hilarious, ways, just like ‘Twistrace’ did with his hilarious take on the Giddy-Up skin.

The Redditor took to the FortniteBR subreddit with a post titled ‘Fortnite needs this’ and an image of the already humorous skin with one key difference: the llama and human have switched roles!

Another Reddit user, ‘King-Boss-Bob’, summarized our feelings about the bizarre design perfectly, saying: “I’m not sure if I want to get this image out of my brain or to keep looking at it. I’m still deciding.”

For the unaware, the Giddy-Up skin was added to Fortnite Battle Royale at the start of Season 6 and features one of the default character skins wearing a llama around his waist to give the impression that he is riding it. We’ve included an image of it at the bottom of this article.

However, it’s significantly more uncomfortable, and funny, to look at the same concept with the roles reversed.

Whatever you make of it, there’s no denying the fact that Fortnite players would be clamouring to add the hilarious skin to their inventory if Epic Games ever decided to add it to the game.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
