How to Become a Pro Builder in Fortnite

Building is by far the most important skill you can master in Fortnite. It is incredibly impressive too, which you will know if you have seen the lightning-fast edits and high-rise buildings some players have made. Building does take a certain amount of practice but the process is really rewarding and fun. You can find maxed-out accounts at ChicksGold. Practicing will involve a lot of grinding, but with this guide, the process will be sped up much more. Welcome to our Fortnite building guide! Let’s get into it.

Some valuable tips

Change the binding on your keys – if you have not done this yet, it is absolutely essential that you do it immediately. If you have a mouse that contains some extra buttons it’s a good idea to move some of your controls to them as it is much quicker to press them than one of your keys. If you’re using a controller you should change your settings to ‘builder pro’ to allow maximum pliability.

Enable turbo building – The difference between turbo building and normal building is that you can press and hold your build key and your next structure will be automatically placed down. When in a normal building setting, you will have to look at an area and manually press the key. Turbo building allows you to do things like quickly spin around and place down walls to make a safe house or just hold in the key when you ramp up to continually do so.

Always harvest materials – This is extremely important! People are often reluctant to do this but it’s cardinal to always harvest materials as you are floating around the map or running to the circle.

Trees, wooden pallets, and fences are great sources of wood – of which you will need at least 600 of as building battles can last for a long time. As you get better battling with other pro players will use more and more resources.

Brick can be easily harvested all around the map from buildings in towns and boulders lying
around the landscape. You can find some mining areas with insane amounts of bricks for you to mine at key points around the map which might be worth learning about. It is important to have some brick in your inventory for extra protection and to place a ramp or two.

Metal can be gathered by smacking cars, steel fences, girders, and gates. They take a while to harvest but can be clutch in the end, so if you have the extra time, it is well worth mining some metal.

Learn to edit

It is extremely important to know how to edit. By being moderately good at just this, you will easily beat up to 90% of the opponents you face, so make sure you master this!

The wedge – By selecting three blocks in any corner of a wall a triangle will be created. This is extremely useful to use when you want to get out of a wall quickly, especially when it is in an awkward position. It opens up a big space into which you can shoot too.

The door – By selecting two blocks that are ontop of each other a door is opened in the wall. This is very useful as an escape route. It can be opened for future use without immediately exposing yourself. Note that this method is risky, so watch your enemies as they can just enter, but you will then have the upper hand still.

The half wall – By selecting a horizontal line of the top three boxes you can create a half wall. This is useful as cover for you to shoot from or jump over. It is also useful when the wall is sunk into the ground. Many interesting and valuable structures can be made with the half wall. The key is to know how to use it.

Things to remember

The techniques listed in this guide are only the basics you need to become a pro builder in
Fortnite. Although, they are very valuable and are guaranteed to help you beat virtually every opponent if you follow the methods correctly. It is important to do more research of your own and to practice. Grinding is the best way to master building. Enjoy gaming!

Do Leaks Ruin A Game Experience?

0

Gaming leaks have been around for a long time now, but sometimes leaks can absolutely change the view of a game before it’s even out, even if the leaks are fake. One big example of this is The Last Of Us Part 2. Only some parts got leaked that clouded the story from an outsider’s perspective a lot. But this begs the question Do Leaks Ruin A Game Experience?

This weekend over 90 clips of GTA 6 (GTA VI) have been leaked, but when I first heard, I wasn’t happy or anything, but I was kinda sad about it. When you wait for a game for a long time, even when you are not a fan, it gives you a certain hype to see the game in its best form for a teaser or 1st trailer. With GTA VI this totally got voided because we already have clips and gameplay of it now, and the “hype” is there, but this will for sure lessen the hype around the announcement. If you wanna know more about the GTA VI leak, please check this video from MoistCr1tical down below. It does not contain any clips.

Did this leak ruin GTA VI? No of course not, it’s gonna sell millions of copies and will be one of the best-selling games for sure. But it does have a sour taste now and will probably be written off by some people that saw the clips and already made up their minds and are gonna skip it for a while on release.

I personally absolutely love only seeing the 1st trailer/announcement and when i like the game I will not watch anything until I play it, just because this makes me feel more surprised when I do get around to play it, but with leaks, you are sometimes kinda force fed the info and clips on Twitter and other socials. Now with TikTok, this is even worse because in the 1st hour of GTA VI being leaked I already saw like 8 clips on my for you page with nothing I can do about it.

Just having the title alone and knowing that the info is out there, sometimes for games that are not even announced yet or didn’t have any knowledge of just fully ruins the surprise at all, like how the Fable reboot got leaked before its official announcement by Xbox. But not just Xbox has a leaking problem, Nintendo has an even bigger problem with it with games being leaked and blown out of proportion that totally kills the vibe when the actual announcement is underwhelming.

Watch Dogs 2 Review

0

Playing Watch Dogs 2 for the 2nd time this year I can’t help but feel a lot more appreciation for this game, with its nice and colorful open world and great story. Watch Dogs 2 feels more like how it should have been in the 1st game.

Watch Dogs 2 is developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. The game was released on November 15, 2016, for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC, in 2020 it was also launched on Google Stadia. This open-world action-adventure game follows Marcus on his adventure with his new friends in Dedsec.

In Watch Dogs 2 you fight with some new friends for more freedom and to stop companies spying on the people of San Francisco. During your adventures, you will find some old friends from Watch Dogs 1 and some new villains. This also comes back in the DLC where multiple familiar faces will return.

You will go against a massive evil corporation and its CEO, This CEO uses everything and everyone he can to stop Dedsec and start spying on more and more people to hold a tighter grasp on the city and citizens. There is 1 big story but at the same time is the game also comprised of small stories that fit into the big one like puzzle pieces. I personally really loved the storyline of the actor and movie car due to its humor and epic scenes it had.

One of the best things for me was the characters, they are all just so fun and are really unique in their own way. Josh is the character that stood out to me the most, having autism myself I could really identify myself with him and recognize a lot of things in him that you almost never see in games at all.

While it did not get an upgrade on series X, it still looks epic and every place you visit has a lot of color to it, but due to how some areas of the game are, it does all kinda look the same. I’m not sure if that is just San Francisco or that the game made those places up itself, but either way, it was still a stunning sight to behold.

The gameplay itself can honestly be better in the aspects of hacking and stealth, I absolutely loved the shooting and some of the hack puzzles, most of the other puzzles that needed stealth and drones were the absolute worst because you got found out so much and super easy a lot of the time. This might just be me being bad at stealth and hating it, but it did make the game a bit worse for wear due to the number of times you needed to do it.

Shooting in the game feels good, especially when you hit a headshot, I didn’t play on hard or anything but it was still enjoyable and kinda hard due to the number of enemies they keep throwing your way. At some moments this did get frustrating, especially later in the game when you got some big guys coming your way, and also that made me enjoy the shooting bits later in the game.

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga Review

Just like Lego Batman: The Videogame, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is really one of the classics in the lego franchise that you can probably still remember a lot. And while I could have probably completed most levels in the game, some of the levels from the original trilogy are ones I kinda forgot about but was surprised about in a good way.

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is developed by Traveller’s Tales (now TT Games) and published by LucasArts (now Lucasfilm Games). The game was released on November 6 2007 on PC, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360. Later also on mobile devices.

Playing through the game while also bingeing the whole Star Wars universe in chronological order really unlocked some core memories for me from way back when I was a kid. I would just play this game constantly over and over again so even now I still remember all the levels almost exactly, but of course, not everything was exactly the same because the story is something I understand a lot more now that I actually know English and have seen these movies.

So do I really need to tell this story? Because it basically follows the first 6 episodes of the movie series almost perfectly. So in the first 3 episodes, you will follow Anikin Skywalker from a little kid to uhm, his full-grown adult self doing some “Heroic” stuff. In the other 3 episodes, you will follow young Luke Skywalker in his journey to become a Jedi and kinda fight the same evil as in the first 3 but not really as well because of time, and oh god I can talk about the story of star wars for hours at this point but you kinda know the gist of it now.

The game lacks in visuals a little bit compared to the Lego games that followed in the years after, but when I’m comparing it to Lego Batman we recently covered, its a lot better than that, it’s really lighthearted and colorful, but it can be a little bit darker when it needs to be. Sadly those darker levels are also the ones I enjoyed way less than the rest of the levels. Scrap that, there is 1 thing worse than the darker levels, and that is the levels where you have to tow around an explosive. Especially in free-play while getting some of the mini kits they have been absolute hell and had me stuck on a snow level for about 10 minutes trying to get it to explode somewhere behind a row of enemies that respawned every time.

Speaking of mini kits, they are there and are pretty much useless because they don’t really unlock anything to my knowledge it’s nice to get them, but other than achievements on Xbox, I don’t really see a purpose. Another extra they put in the game that i thought was new that I don’t remember being in other lego games is the bounty system. It’s just some quick hide-and-seek missions, but playing through them was still a bit of a joy to do, but after completing every mission like 2/3 times, it did kinda feel like a drag for the longer ones.

There are also plenty of characters to buy, but a lot of them feel kinda useless due to how overpowered some of them are, and some get side passed entirely due to some redbricks like the “Dark Side” red brick. there is this 1 robot character called 4-LOM that basically was every robot character in 1 so all the other robots were already a goner. But there were also some characters that only had 1 character that could do the thing you needed, mainly looking at the clone trooper that had the gun to break the golden bricks.
