One of the top Fortnite players and streamers, TSM’s Ali “Myth” Kabbani has hit out at naysayers of new Battle Royale titles.

Of course, Fortnite has become not only the biggest Battle Royale game over the last six months ahead of PUBG and H1Z1, but also the biggest game in general, all over the world (perhaps with the exception of East Asia, where it is yet to take off).

With any big gaming trend though, there are always attempts by other developers to get in on the action, and there have been increasing numbers of BR games released and announced since the genre’s boom.

Interestingly though, one of Fortnite’s minor achievements has been to cultivate a very loyal following, one which seems averted to any new titles in the genre, labelling them as copycats or rip off’s.

But Myth has expressed he is critical of this stance, and a number of other high profile community members are with him on it.

He exlpains that having such an aversion to Battle Royale games achieves nothing, and that fans should simply be happy that there are new games to try. If they like them, good, if not, fine.

He made clear that he was referring to the new ‘Battlerite’ game which was recently announced, and which some portions of BR fans have denounced as a copycat of Fortnite.

Other games such as the Darwin Project and Fear the Wolves, and also Red Dead Redemption 2 have also received similar criticism.

And names in community agree, such as OpTic Gaming member Davis “Hitch” Edwards.

The new Battlerite battle royale mode is set to release this summer on PC, and will also feature ‘situational building’ – obviously very similar to Fortnite.

However, it is only a 20 player game – rather than Fortnite’s 100 player matches.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 flooded the entire map after Midas activated the Device—but now players get their turns to flood something of their own: their inventories with loot stolen from the Fortilla Vault.

Chapter 2, Season 3 changed Fortnite’s map drastically, in one of the biggest revamps ever for the game, namely by washing away most of the game’s northwestern points of interest and sliding in the Fortilla, a brand new set of islands in the southwestern quadrant.

Aside from wanting an excuse to travel to a new destination, players can now be additionally motivated to explore the Fortilla because they can defeat a boss, obtain a keycard, and then reap the benefits of boundless, formerly vaulted loot.

Fortnite’s Season 3 map, a flooded masterpiece with some intriguing additions.

South of Holly Hedges and west of Rickety Rig, you’ll find the Fortilla: a set of small islands surrounded by about five larger islands—all covered with structures resembling a tropical shanty town.

How to open Fortilla Vault

  1. Drop at the Fortilla in Fortnite Season 3
  2. Scour the area for Ocean
  3. Eliminate Ocean
  4. Pick up Ocean’s Fortilla Keycard (and other loot)
  5. Follow the Keycard’s directions to find and unlock the vault!

 

As mentioned by YouTube’s ‘Gamerz World,’ the best way to find Ocean is to glide around on one of the map’s boats and listen for her because she’s a talker.

Once you defeat Ocean, you’ll get three great pieces of loot: Ocean’s Burst Assault Rifle, Ocean’s Bottomless Chug Jug, and the ever-important Fortilla Keycard.

The Chug Jug is a nasty item, as it gives you full health and shields (and offers free refills). The gun is also mighty strong, but not nearly as exciting as the keycard, which will grant you directions and access to the Vault.

The Fortilla is an expansive set of islands, covered in henchmen and beach decor.

When you have the Fortilla Keycard selected from your inventory, the game will show you arrows towards the Vault. Follow those directions, make it to the Vault, and, voila, loot as far as the eye can see. 

The new Fortilla Vault is the latest in the game since Catty Corner’s Vault was discovered. While you got some sick loot from that one, nothing is quite as quenching as Ocean’s bottomless Chug Jug.
