Even though Epic Games just switched up the Fortnite meta by removing the Glider Re-Deploy feature, Team SoloMid streamer Brett ‘Dakotaz’ Hoffman wants to see even more changes soon.

Just a day after saying that he felt Fortnite “is really not that good anymore,” Dakotaz has shared a long list of things that he wants to be worked on next.

He looks to be pleased with the removal of the Glider Re-Deploy but clearly has a lot more in mind for the future of the popular game.

The majority of the items on Dakotaz’ list focus on bringing back items or features that were previously in the game but have been changed or tweaked over time.

One of the biggest changes he requests is one that is currently being tested in the Scavenger Pop-Up Cup limited tournament. 

In that mode, players receive 50 health (or shields if they’re at full health) when eliminating opponents. It’s a feature that has been widely praised since being discovered in the V6.30 patch notes

Dakotaz is clearly among that group with his request that it be added to main game. 

Epic GamesDakotaz wants Epic Games to “make shotguns great again.”

Dakotaz also mentions trap damage, which is something that isn’t discussed as much anymore but was once a hot topic of discussion. 

He’d like to see the damage brought back down to its levels before a hotfix in June raised it to the current level of 150. 

No wishlist would be complete, of course, without the mention of the current state of shotguns, as many feel they’re far too inconsistent to be viable. Dakotaz suggests raising either the overall damage or at least raising headshot damage.

Dakotaz also followed up his list with one more point about the Glider Re-Deploy possibly being brought back as a legendary item with a specific number of charges. 

With many heavily valuing his opinion, it’s no surprise to see his Tweet getting hundreds of replies shortly after being posted. 

Epic Games is known to look closely at the feedback from the community and they’re surely keeping an eye on what Dakotaz had to say for future updates.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.


After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
