Kids into Minecraft, Fortnite and Roblox this summer? Get in the game with them, parents – USA TODAY

In this fledgling world of almost-summer 2021, there are a million reasons to worry about your kids playing video games. What if they get addicted, see too much violence, or talk with some super creepy stranger online? 

Or worse? (Roblox Adopt Me! reference coming…) What if they lose their ever-loving minds “adopting” an endless loop of gamified fantasy creatures until their only mission in life is to maybe, someday become the proud child-parents of a Diamond Unicorn

The struggle is real. 

Screen time soared for every age group during the pandemic, but most notably, it shot up as much as 500% for some children and teens. 

Gaming to reconnect

But this story isn’t about the Everest-sized mountain of what-if worries. It’s about another trend that evolved out of those countless hours we were all stuck in our own bubbles over the past year-plus: Parents learned to play video games with their kids, and good things happened as a result. 

“Teaching my mom and dad to play (Rocket League) last winter was a turning point for us,” 15-year old high school sophomore Collin Blewett explained over the phone. “It was kind of a best-case, fairytale time that I never expected,” he added. 

Collin Blewett of Sacramento, Calif., says teaching his parents how to play some of his favorite video games helped them get closer as a family during the pandemic.

For weeks that stretched into months, Collin – like so many other kids in America – turned to screens for his only real activity, entertainment, and interaction with the outside world. It’s where he went to school, hung out with friends, and eased mounting worries. He said there were – and still are – days he games for three or four hours at a time.

For Collin’s parents – who are active and strive for balance and moderation online and off – all that increased gaming caused growing concern. They often urged their teen to spend more quality time doing something … anything … other than staring at screens. 

I spoke with Blewett’s parents – who are good friends of mine – about this conflict in late 2020. It was happening with families everywhere. I asked Collin’s mom if she knew about the buzz around a different approach to the wired world of pandemic parenting: What if they all tried playing video games together?

They were all game, and it worked out fairly well. “We definitely got closer over it,” Collin said. “It was fun to see how good my mom was at it naturally, and my dad said it helped him understand the comfort and connection I get playing. It was fun to teach them, too.” 

Can’t beat ’em, join ’em – with moderation.

I’ve heard similar sentiments from dozens of other kids and parents, too. 

“It never entered my brain that (gaming) was something I would do prior to the pandemic,” 35-year old Brooke Monson told me over the phone. Monson, who lives outside Salt Lake City, said she used it to connect with her 12-year-old stepson, Henry. 

“The thing that’s been huge for our family is that Henry’s mom had to take a job in another state last year, and they moved away. Have you tried to Facetime with a 12-year old? It’s all one-word answers, ‘How’s your day?’ ‘Fine,'” Monson said. “Now we log on and play Fortnite Battle Royale, and spend an hour, sometimes two, doing something together. We’re able to talk, connect, and just hang out. It feels like he’s back home with us. It’s been such a good way for him and me to bond.” 

“Gaming is a bonding tool, 100%,” adds Joel Willis, editor in chief of The Dad, a humorous lifestyle website about modern parenting. “When I grew up, we often spent family time watching a TV show together. Gaming is like that, except experiential, interactive, and cooperative, which leads to just so much more connection.” 

As a father of two, Willis says gaming, especially during the pandemic, has become a “connecting rod” between him, his 12-year old daughter, and his 9-year-old son. 

“It’s not an isolating experience like we used to think. Kids aren’t playing alone for hours on end. We’re in the Golden Age of social gaming,” Willis explains. “Playing Fortnite with my son, it’s constant conversation. ‘I got your back, do this, do that.’ We help each other out. In between all those commands and collaboration, we talk about his life and school. Same with my daughter. I love that I can share this time with them.” 

Joel Willis, of The Dad and The Dad Gaming League, plays Fortnite with his 9-year old son.

►With glitterbombs and fart spray:Mark Rober’s on a mission to take on porch pirates, squirrels and science

Willis also discovered from his work with The Dad that millions of other families feel the same way. In late 2019, Willis started a gaming community, first in a Facebook group and then over Twitch and other platforms. 

Within a few months, the number of parents sharing moments around gaming with their kids grew large enough to attract the attention of sponsors, and The Dad Gaming League was born. Today, it’s reached more than three million people (moms, dads, and grandparents are all welcome), garnered more than 110,000 followers across four channels, and 11 Facebook groups with 30k+ members. 

“During physical distancing,” Laura Higgins, Director of Community Safety & Digital Civility at Roblox said via email, “We even saw grandparents getting involved in family play as a way to spend time and stay in touch with grandkids.”

According to Higgins, “Playing together is a great way to get more involved in your kids’ online lives.” And don’t worry if you’re terrible at gaming, she says. “This gives your kids an opportunity to teach you.”

Rules of the gaming road 

This is the part of the story where we remind ourselves that online activity is all well and good as long as no one is sitting all glassy-eyed in a puddle of their own drool for hours on end. Of course, everyone still needs to get up and out of the house, exercise, get fresh air and actually engage with people in real life, too. 

The struggle is real here, too.

Just like we have rules about manners, safety, morality, healthy habits, and social skills in the offline world, parents need to guide kids through similar expectations in the online world, too. 

“We definitely have rules in place that are nonnegotiable,” Monson shared. “We turn off in-game chat where other people can talk to him. There’s toxicity in the gaming world, a lot of it, so we’re always on the lookout for that. He knows he can talk with us about it, too. You have to know your child. It’s easy for them to get overstimulated. We don’t play close to bedtime.”

Other great rules to note? No spending real money. Many gaming and tech platforms seduce players to level up with cash – sometimes thousands – for the chance to “win” in-game perks, beat other players, or keep daily streaks from dying. 

►Paying to level up:In-game purchases are out of control, that’s why I try to ‘suck it up’

And there’s all that what-if stuff. Studies have also shown a correlation between unchecked time online and depression, anxiety, obesity, aggression, and even addiction. All of that gets even more concerning when kids have access to inappropriate content for their age. 

“Parents need to educate themselves on the games, dive into the settings and know how they work,” Willis adds. He also encourages parents to: 

  • Check age restrictions and make sure your child’s account is set to the appropriate age
  • Look into chat settings, and turn them off or apply strict filters. 
  • Check friend and party settings too, and turn off the ability for random people to join your child’s party, squad, or even send your child friend requests. 

Periodically go through your kids’ friend lists and talk to them about each person, to confirm it’s someone they actually know.” 

It might sound overwhelming, but Willis and many other says the real-world rewards in getting closer with your kids is worth it. That is, just as long as no one breaks the most important Dad Gaming League rule of all, “to never, ever let our kids beat us in Mario Kart.”

‘Fortnite’ Alien Artifact Locations For Season 7, Week 2 – Forbes

If it’s a thing, you want to collect it. This is the basic philosophy underpinning my experience with Fortnite, and why I have a massive locker stacked with dozens of skins and styles that I will, if I’m being honest, never use. It also underpins my career and life, but we don’t need to get into that now. The point is: there are alien artifacts in Fortnite season 7, and they definitely qualify as things. It’s a new currency for this season, which you use to upgrade the Kymera skin. But that’s besides the point: the point is that they are things, and we are here to collect them. Let’s take a look at the locations for Season 7, Week 2.

Each new week seems to bring 5 artifacts with it. So let’s take a look at what we’ve got this week:

These are all pretty easy to spot, particularly because they sort of hang in the air and collect as soon as you walk through them. So head to the locations marked on the map and pick them up so you can get to further customizing your Kymera skin, making your perfect weird alien thing to keep with you for the rest of this season and into eternity, keeping you warm on cold nights.

These are dropping every week, again, so it’s a fun little ritual to make sure you’re up to speed as you rank up the rest of your battle pass, keeping current and working your way ever upwards. So far it’s been a good season, and general sentiment seems to agree: there have been some missed opportunities in the past, but most people seem pretty well on board with what Epic has been doing in recent days.

That’s all for now, but there’s plenty more coming. Check back for guides and analysis as we move forward.

Fortnite: How to get the Dizzie Domain pack with 600 V-Bucks – Sportskeeda

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 has added a new starter pack called the Dizzie Domain Pack to the item shop. Players will definitely want to try the new outfit, which comes in an orange, white and black color combination.

Along with other cosmetic items, the Dizzie Domain pack comes with free V-bucks in tow for Fortnite players. The deal might sound too good to be true to some players, especially those who do not like to spend too much money on Fortnite.

Considering Fortnite is a free-to-play title, all the amazing outfits and cosmetics come at a price that players can pay for in V-bucks. However, with the introduction of the Battle Star mechanism in Fortnite, players can unlock cosmetics by just grinding the game and completing quests.

This method is more difficult and will take up a lot of time. For players who will take up the grind, getting new skins might be worth it.

How to get Dizzie Domain pack in Fortnite

The new pack is available in the item shop starting today. Players can open the item shop and head straight down to the Limited Time section at the end to find the pack.

  • Open the pack to inspect the items it is offering.
  • This pack cannot be purchased with V-bucks. Players will need to use real time money to make this purchase. The Dizzie Domain Pack is priced at $3.99
  • Complete the digital purchase and equip the items.

The pack comes with three additional items. There is an Extra Round Back Bling, Rebel Slice Pickaxe, and 600 V-bucks, all included in this Starter pack.

The best part about this offer is it is certainly cheap, considering 600 V-bucks costs $4 if bought separately. At $3.99, players are getting a lot more, and Dizzie is definitely one of the better skins to play Fortnite with.

Since this is a limited time offer, players might want to rush if they are interested in acquiring this pack.

‘Fortnite’ Graffiti-Covered Wall Locations: Where To Find Them At Hydro 16 Or Catty Corner – Forbes

Fortnite is now putting Epic challenges and new Alien Artifacts live on Tuesdays, it seems, with Legendaries coming tomorrow. And one of today’s challenges is asking players to find graffiti-covered walls at Hydro 16 or Catty Corner.

ADVERTISEMENT

You only need one of these two complete the challenge, but I’ve found at least three across the two locations, and you can see where they are in the map below:

So, to recap we have:

  • One graffiti wall at the north west part of the building to the left of the dam at Hydro 16.
  • One graffiti wall on the bottom left of the dam wall itself to the east.
  • A pair of pieces of graffiti on the wall near the giant metal door south east of Catty Corner.

Again, you should only need one of these to complete the challenge, so any of these will do for your discovery purposes.

Go here to see where to collect spray cans from Dirty Docks or Pleasant Park.

MORE FOR YOU

You will notice that these pieces of graffiti are presumably alien-supporting humans covering up the logo of the IO organization, the humans that are here to fight the aliens and also us, if we get in their way. Their battles are in the “hot zones” of the map that you will come across frequently. There’s also a mission to find spray cans around the map this week, implying that we might be the ones actually doing this graffiti, which I suppose makes sense.

Over the course of this season, we are supposed to be seeing the alien mothership move over the map and more and more of an alien presence as a result. I expect big things for the rest of this season as Epic in particular has been hyping it up, and I am still waiting for Loki and Star Trek skins, which have already been teased.

Alright, go find that graffiti and I will see you there.

Review – Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #5 – Exit Strategy – GeekDad

Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #5 cover, via DC Comics.

Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #5 – Christos Gage, Donald Mustard, Writers; Christian Duce, Artist; John Kalisz, Colorist

Ray – 8/10

Ray: It’s the penultimate issue of DC’s craziest crossover, and a motley crew of DC heroes and antiheroes and Fortnite warriors have found their way to the inner circle of the island—and with it the titular Zero Point. I like the way this series has been existing not just within the world of the game but within its twisted rules. Violence and even death mean nothing in the game itself, because it resets with everyone alive. But now they’re out of the game world, they’ve already seen one of their number die at the hands of a mysterious traitor, and Batman’s no-killing rule has come back in force—something the other combatants don’t really understand or care about. There’s a little too much in the way of generic video game chat in this book, talking about multiversal mechanics that don’t really mean much. But it’s always fun to see Batman lead an oddball team of survivors.

Survivors. via DC Comics.

Things take a more serious turn as soon as they find the inner sanctum, with one of the more unstable members of the gang making a fateful and reckless decision. From there, things start to unravel as they try to find a way home that won’t leave them scattered across the multiverse. The reveal of the traitor is probably the most predictable choice available and doesn’t really make much of a choice, and the ending leaves them stranded in a situation that it seems like we’ve seen multiple times before. With only one issue to go, we’ll see if this is able to end as well as it began. It’s an interesting concept and one that stands on its own surprisingly well even if you don’t know the first thing about Fortnite. It fits into an underrated genre of Batman stories—Batman thrown into bizarre situations where he proceeds to just start hacking it using sheer force of will. And that’s always a good read.

Fortnite Guide: How to Get Gold Bars In Season 7 – VGR.com

Fortnite Gold Bars are a valuable resource that was introduced in Chapter 2 – Season 5. Players use this resource to buy items and services from non-playable characters over the island. Furthermore, the Gold Bars are the only way of obtaining some of the strongest weapons in the game.

Season 7 of Fortnite Battle Royale has brought big changes to Gold Bars and how players can obtain them. Because of that, many players struggle to earn them in the current season. This guide teaches you how to earn Fortnite Gold Bars in Season 7 so you can obtain valuable items and services with them.

Earning Fortnite Gold Bars in Season 7

There are several ways of making gold in the current season of Fortnite Battle Royale, but some of them are much more effective than others. Just like before, players can obtain Gold Bars by looting chests and destroying some objects, such as beds, cash registers, and couches. Additionally, players can earn this valuable resource by completing bounties and looting safes.

Fortnite Gold Bars can still be earned from Bounty boards
Fortnite Gold Bars can still be earned from Bounty boards.

The most effective way of earning Fortnite Gold Bars, however, is by completing quests. Quests can be obtained from NPCs and from payphones, which are a new feature in Season 7. Common quests reward players with 80 Gold Bars while the reward for Exotic ones is 200 bars! The best part? Most of the quests are very easy to finish and can be completed within minutes!

Catty Corner is one of the places players can land at for quick and easy Gold Bars. This place offers a bounty and it is also close to the Yellow Steel Bridge where players can pick up a quest from an NPC and a payphone. Additionally, the NPC (Riot) drops an Epic Heavy Assault Rifle, which is one of the best weapons in the game at the moment. Riot also offers the Storm Scout Sniper Rifle to players for 500 Gold Bars, as well as Mass Supply Drop for 1,250 bars.

Bounties and quests change

Unlike in the previous seasons, players can complete only one quest per NPC (or payphone) in a single match and the same goes for bounties. If you pick up a bounty and complete it, you will not be able to pick up another bounty from the same board. Completing a payphone quest will make that same payphone inaccessible for the rest of the game. However, players can interact and get quests from other payphones.

Payphones are a quick way of making Gold Bars in Fortnite Season 7.
Payphones are a quick way of making Gold Bars in Fortnite Season 7.

Keep in mind, each quest has its duration. Most in-game quests expire after 60 minutes, but some of them are even less forgiving. Several NPCs offer a quest for opening three chests and ammo boxes, but players are only given a few minutes to complete it.

Remember to always pick up a quest that is easiest for you. If you are not skilled with submachine guns, make sure to avoid quests that require you to get eliminations or damage with them. At the moment, one of the most valuable quests is to fly a UFO which is worth 200 Gold Bars.

Spending Gold Bars in Fortnite

Fortnite players can spend Gold Bars for many different things in Season 7. Epic Games has brought back Vending Machines and players buy items from them with this resource. Furthermore, items and services can be obtained from NPCs as well. For those who have extra bars, they can tip the bus driver and get a shoutout!

Spending Gold Bars on items from Vending Machines is the best way to get a good loadout. Vending Machine items are very cheap, yet valuable. For example, a Rare weapon costs only 50 Gold Bars. On the other side, upgrading weapons at Upgrade Stations is extremely expensive. It costs hundreds of bars to upgrade an item from Uncommon to Rare rarity, which does not make much sense. Epic Games will most likely change this in the future as upgrading should be much cheaper.

Fortnite Mass Supply Drop
Mass Supply Drop is…very interesting!

Exotic items can be bought for Gold Bars as well. Most of them cost 400 Gold Bars, with the exception of the Storm Scout Sniper Rifle which costs 100 bars more.

The new season has also brought new services offered by NPCs. Several characters, including Marigold at Lazy Lake, allow players to buy Mass Supply Drop. This service spawns at least 10 Supply Drops in the safe zone for every to loot!

Fortnite: 6 Former Pros Who Quit And Never Looked Back – ESTNN Esports

ESTNN remembers six Fortnite legends who called it quits and never looked back.


Competitive Fortnite Battle Royale’s journey from the early days until now is unlike any other game in history. Fans of the scene can attest to the humble beginnings, which included no moving storm circles and a reliance on healing items. The once iconic Battle Royale title helped breed some of gaming’s most recognizable names, such as Tyler “Ninja” Blevins and Nick “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff. However, the competitive scene had its own group of players that once dominated Fortnite tournaments and became historical figures.

Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever. Many foundational players and personalities have moved on from Fortnite and have shown little to no interest in competitive ever again. Today, ESTNN highlights six transcendent players who said “I’m done” and bid adieu to the game they helped put on the map.

Harrison “Psalm” Chang

Multi-game specialist Harrison “psalm” Chang is a legend in the Fortnite Battle Royale scene. Many referred to psalm as the “meta master” for his ability to adapt each season. His career began with a second-place finish in week three of the 2018 Fall Skirmish alongside fellow veteran Timothy “Bizzle” Miller. Psalm continued to thrive online in the lead-up to Fortnite’s inaugural World Cup event, which he qualified for as a solo in week three of the NA East Qualifiers. Against the expectations of most, psalm ventured to New York City and finished second in the Fortnite World Cup Solo Finals, netting him $1.8M USD and a place in the game’s illustrious competitive history.

Psalm continued his career in Fortnite through Season X and Chapter 2 – Season 1 but never replicated his runner-up finish at the World Cup, understandably so. His last tournament occurred in Chapter 2 – Season 2, where he took 146th in the week three FNCS Semi-Finals. Psalm then announced he would take his talents to Valorant in hopes of continuing his legacy as an all-time esports athlete. It was sad to see psalm leave, but we at least have the infamous Infinity Blade clip to remember him and his impressive World Cup showing.

Turner “Tfue” Tenney

Fortnite arguably wouldn’t have reached the level of fame and notoriety it enjoys today without one Turner “Tfue” Tenney. Coming from the world of H1Z1 and PUBG, Tfue became a seemingly overnight sensation in Fortnite Battle Royale. He began pub stomping on Twitch before entering the competitive scene. It didn’t take very long for Tfue to dominate. He started with two 2018 Fall Skirmish wins in weeks two and four. Tfue and his then duo partner Dennis “Cloakzy” Lepore claimed victory in the Fall Skirmish Finals, which won them an astounding $200K USD each.

Tfue’s career from then forward speaks for itself. He became one of the only original players to stand the test of time through Chapter 2. The former FaZe Clan member grew tired of the game in Chapter 2 – Season 3, prompting his switch to Call of Duty: Warzone to try something different. Since then, Tfue returned to competitive Fortnite only once to play Frosty Frenzy with Co1azo and former duo partner Tyler “Scoped” Appleby. While he never officially retired, the days of Tfue competing in Fortnite Battle Royale have come to an end, but there’s no denying his mark on the game.

Dennis “Cloakzy” Lepore

Like Tfue, Cloakzy enjoyed plenty of success in Fortnite Battle Royale as a content creator and competitor. He was one of the first members of FaZe Clan’s Fortnite roster, joining in March of 2018. Cloakzy proceeded to represent the organization well with multiple high finishes through the 2018 Summer and Fall Skirmish tournaments. Though he failed to qualify for the Fortnite World Cup, Cloakzy is a notable figure in the game’s history.

Many fans recognize Cloakzy and Tfue as arguably the most iconic duo in Fortnite. Unfortunately, Cloakzy would retire in Chapter 2 – Season 1 after an eighth-place FNCS result alongside Tfue, Leon “Khanada” Khim and Alex “Fiber” Bonetello. He is a prominent figure in competitive Fortnite but seems unwilling to return, given his recent surge in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Aydan “Aydan” Conrad

[embedded content]

Former Ghost Gaming member Aydan “Aydan” Conrad is one of the few controller players who separated themselves from the pack in Fortnite’s early days. Most long-time fans will remember Aydan’s Tilted Towers duel against eventual duo partner Nick “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff at the 2018 Summer Skirmish. That showdown put Aydan on the map, who went on to rack up several high placements throughout his career. In 2019, Aydan qualified with fellow Ghost member Sean “Sean” Close for the Fortnite World Cup.

This achievement furthered his case for being arguably the best controller player at that time. Aydan’s results took a downturn after Season X, but he remained one of NA West’s best for a long time. He has not competed in Fortnite outside of Twitch Rivals tournaments since Chapter 2 – Season 2. Aydan is now a member of the New York Subliners Call of Duty organization and is one of the best Warzone players in the world.

Hayden “Elevate” Krueger

Former 100 Thieves player Hayden “Elevate” Krueger is another seasoned veteran who found his footing early in competitive Fortnite. He began competing in August of 2018, and it didn’t take long for him to find the winner’s circle. Alongside duo partner Davis “Ceice” McClellan, the two won WSOE 3, an early LAN tournament. Then, less than one year later, they marched into the Fortnite World Cup Duo Finals and finished third.

One million dollars richer, Elevate and Ceice parted ways soon after Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 1. Elevate continued competing up to the FNCS Chapter 2 – Season 2 Season Finals, where he and Shawn “clarityG” Washington finished in 23rd place. Like psalm before him, Elevate moved into the Valorant scene, where he remains to this day. Unfortunately, the Canadian has shown no interest in returning to competitive Fortnite.

Vinny “Vinny1x” Giglan

The once renowned TSM player —Vinny “Vinny1x” Gilgan — sat atop Fortnite’s tournament scene for some time. He emerged as a young talent in 2018 at the Fall Skirmish, where he and fellow legend Anthony “ZexRow” Colandro finished third, establishing themselves as a force. That success continued at the invite-only ESL Katowice Royale in 2019. Vinny secured the win in solos before he and ZexRow managed another third-place result.

Vinny and ZexRow’s transcendent partnership translated to a ninth at the Fortnite World Cup. The two players rejoined forces in Chapter 2 – Season 1, where they enjoyed a second-place FNCS finish. The list goes on for perhaps the game’s most underappreciated professional players of all time. Vinny’s competitive fire unfortunately burned out sometime between the World Cup and DreamHack Anaheim. He has not competed since then.

There are numerous former Fortnite pros who have since moved on stretches beyond the six mentioned on this list. However, these players are legends in the game’s storied history. Perhaps some will return for another Fortnite World Cup run, but that seems unlikely for most. Their legacies live on in Twitch archives and YouTube videos, reminding all who watch of their impact on the game.

Fortnite alien parasites will steal your health and give you powers – SlashGear

Epic will soon release a new living object in Fortnite called alien parasites. As the name suggests, these creatures originate from the alien invasion and attach to players like parasites — but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It seems these creatures will offer players certain abilities that can be useful depending on the situation.

Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 7 kicked off with an alien invasion. Players got access to futuristic weapons and UFOs, plus there’s a giant mothership in the sky. That was only the start of this invasion, however, and Alien parasites are among the next big change. Players can expect to always find the parasites at the POIs with purple names, and there’s a greater than 50-percent chance they’ll also spawn at other random spots.

According to data-miner HYPEX, the parasites will appear as green eggs in the locations where they spawn. The creatures will emerge from the eggs if you walk near one, resulting in a swarm of purple parasites that want to be your ‘companions.’ If one attaches to you, you’ll sacrifice some health but gain ‘enhanced mobility.’

It’s unclear whether that is the only ability that will be offered by these parasites or if they’ll offer a variety of different boosts. Of course, you may not have enough health to sacrifice or may not need the ability, in which case you’ll be able to remove the parasite. The parasites will reportedly have 75 health, while the eggs will have 60 health.

HYPEX suggests that players may be able to pick up and throw the eggs, which would mean using them as a weapon against opponents who would lose some health. However, it’s unclear whether that feature will actually be made available or if that aspect of the alien parasites has been removed.

The best way to loot Fortnite’s new moving Llamas – Fortnite Tracker

Never miss out on those precious materials again with this simple trick.

Fortnite Season 7 is in full swing, and players are loving it! As well as some big competitions and a shiny new Battle Pass, the v17.00 update treated fans to a whole bunch of exciting gameplay changes.

Among these adjustments was a huge upgrade to one of the Battle Royale’s staple items. Supply Llamas have been a Fortnite mainstay since Chapter 1 Season 3, they’re hard to find and very rewarding, and now, they’re even better.

In Season 7, Llamas will run off if you get too close, releasing shields and ammo as they go. When fully destroyed, they will drop materials, yet more shield and ammunition, and perhaps most excitingly, the Exotic Chug Cannon.

If you have good aim and a couple of automatic weapons, you may be able to deplete a Llama’s HP bar fairly quickly. However, after around 30 seconds they will teleport away, often out of sight, meaning you miss out on a lot of the best stuff.

Fortunately, Redditor u/OKCampaign7646 recently shared a foolproof method to make sure you get all the loot, every time.

What you need to do is sneak up on the Llama by crouch-walking behind it. As soon as you’re in range, quickly build around it to trap it in.

Once inside your builds, the Llama will be unable to break out and escape. From here you can line up a perfect headshot and spray it open in no time.

If you do accidentally startle a Llama, it’s not all over. Hitting it with a charged Rail Gun shot, Vehicle or Fishing Rod will temporarily stun it, giving you a chance to close the distance and deal some easy damage.

Fortnite UFO Meme Strategy Could Lead to Easy Wins – Heavy.com

fortnite ufo strategy

Epic Games

Like it or not, UFOs are in Fortnite and if you’re somebody who is trying to embrace the change, you might be interested in a way that can result in easy wins.

Everyone knows that wins are already tough to come by in Fortnite, so if there’s a way to take some shortcuts that could result in easy victories, who wouldn’t want to take it?

In a video from Fortnite streamer and YouTuber Lazarbeam, he showcased a surprisingly powerful strategy with the UFOs that could be used to gobble up wins.

Of course, it involves a meme strategy, but if you’re looking to have some fun with the UFOs, this might be right up your alley.


What’s the Strategy?


VideoVideo related to fortnite ufo meme strategy could lead to easy wins2021-06-14T15:15:13-04:00

In LazarBeam’s video, he teams up with fellow streamer and YouTuber Fresh as they use massive objects carried by the UFO to eliminate players.

The video shows that you can pick up vehicles and just slam them into players for easy eliminations. It doesn’t even look like you have to hit players at full speed either as they just get eliminated by being touched by the vehicle or object.

This can be done by yourself, but it looks like it’d be much more successful if you have at least one other teammate running a distraction for you. It looks like the object you hit them with is enough to 1-shot them every time, but it’s tough to tell if they had any shield beforehand.

At the very least, it looks like a cheesy strategy that’ll be able to secure some easy eliminations on unsuspecting players. You can even try to bring the Battle Bus to them and get some elims with that. The only thing you’ll have to be worried about is being shot down before you can wreak havoc. Good thing the UFOs have multiple lives, right?

Well, Lazarbeam showed that it is very possible to win a game like this, but your mileage will certainly vary. If you’re confident in your abilities to whack a player with a truck, then go for it.

If you think it’s harder to pull off than it looks, then your time will likely be better spent elsewhere. Since the season is so young, it’s worth trying out some new things and seeing what sticks. Not every player will let you roll up on them with a giant truck in tow with your spaceship, but you’d likely be surprised with how unaware some players can be.

At the very least, it’s something worth trying at least once and seeing if you’re able to get somewhere with it. If you fail, you can at least say you tried. If you’re successful, maybe you can keep the ball rolling into future matches. There are a lot of ways to use the UFOs, and that’s a big reason why the start of this season has been so fun.

Let’s see if players are able to come up with even more wacky ideas in the future.
