This GTA-style feature could be the perfect replacement for Fortnite’s planes

Epic Games’ attack plane experiment in Fortnite Season 7 has had some highs and a whole lot of lows, but by adding one new mode of transport they could be replaced quite easily. 

With so many complaints being made about the issues caused by X-4 Stormwing vehicles planes after they were first added to the game at the start of Season 7, they have been continually nerfed ever since with new fixes trying to solve problem after problem. 

But, one fan has proposed an idea that could potentially replace them and Fortnite’s glitchy ziplines in one fell swoop.

In a post to the Fortnite BR subreddit, NOJHD has proposed that a train system should be added to Fortnite to allow players to move around the map easily and quickly. 

These trains, which have had potential tracks mapped out below, would continually move around the map and would destroy anything in their path – which would be very similar to the rail system featured in Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto: V and other GTA titles before it. 

The map shows two stations situated in the snow biome, near popular destinations Happy Hamlet and Titled Towers, with the others near Wailing Woods and the race track in the desert biome. 

NOJHD, RedditConcept train tracks and stations plotted out for Fortnite.

The Reddit user would like to see trains which are easy to jump onto added to Battle Royale, with chests spawning in the caboose and believes this would completely change how players loot on the game. 

While discussing how the idea would benefit Fortnite players, NOJHD posted: “This would be a whole new thing for looting. Hop on the train, if it’s looted you just ride to the next station”. 

“Trains are very dangerous and this could teach kids that playing on the railroad tracks is very dangerous. Fun and educational!” another user wrote. 


FaZe Clan announce top 20 finalists for FaZe5 & what’s coming next

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
