Popular Twitch streamer Caesar ‘CDNThe3rd’ Noriega is loving the new “Infinity Gauntlet” Limited Time Mode on Fortnite Battle Royale, especially when he gets his hands on a Bush.

May 8th marked the start of a groundbreaking new project that saw Epic Games and Marvel join forces to create the Fortnite X Avengers Infinity War crossover event.

The main aspect of this deal is the new Limited Time Mode known as “Infinity Gauntlet” which allows players to turn into the film’s main villain, Thanos, and unlock various special abilities.

Some players have already started to work out that the differences in the game mode mean that various new tactics are more viable than usual. For instance, the Bush has suddenly become an item that is worth using.

The Bush allows players to camouflage themselves as a bush and top streamers have already started to find out that it is perfect for sneaking up on an unsuspecting Thanos, stealing the Gauntlet, and then going on a rampage as a “Bush Thanos”.

One player that has been having great fun with this new ability is CDNThe3rd. The 22 year old shared a clip on Twitter on May 9th which showed just how comical an all-powerful Titan wearing a bush can be.

In his Tweet, CDNThe3rd said that TSM’s Dakotaz was the first player to discover the “Bush Edition” of Thanos and commented on how much fun he is having using the Bush in the LTM.

“I find the bush more useful in this game mode than any other game mode. I actually love being a Bush sneaking up on Thanos.”

It seems like being a Bush is becoming something of a fashion statement. First Drake, now Thanos, who will don the leafy outfit next?

Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.

Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
