Q & A

  • What is the Midas bundle in Fortnite known for?

    -The Midas bundle in Fortnite is known for its skin that turns everything gold.

  • Why would the ability to tame frogs in Fortnite be considered useless?

  • What was the community's reaction to the ability to tip the bus driver in Fortnite?

  • Why did the scoped shotguns in Fortnite not make sense to players?

    -Scoped shotguns did not make sense because players were used to firing from the hip without sights, and the scopes were not useful, leading to players having to go to a bunker to remove them.

  • What was the issue with the train feature in Fortnite?

    -The train feature was considered useless because the loot inside was of low quality, the best items were locked behind a time-consuming hackable chest, and players could not stop the train.

  • How did the Zeus's lightning bolts feature change over time in Fortnite?

  • Why are emoticons in Fortnite considered almost never sold on their own?

    -Emoticons are considered almost never sold on their own because players rarely use them, and Epic Games is aware of this, often bundling them with other items.

  • What was the problem with the upgrade benches in Fortnite?

    -The upgrade benches were considered useless because they took up an inventory slot and were not often used by players, who were not interested in the items they provided.

  • Why did the addition of wasps to Fortnite not have the intended impact?

Keywords

๐Ÿ’กMidas bundle

The Midas bundle is a reference to a set of items in Fortnite that includes a skin and weapon wrap. The skin has a unique feature where it can turn everything it touches into gold, which is a humorous nod to the myth of King Midas. In the context of the video, it's mentioned to highlight the sometimes useless but fun nature of some in-game features.

๐Ÿ’กTame frogs

Taming frogs is a feature in Fortnite that allows players to befriend and have frogs follow them around the game. The video points out the apparent uselessness of this feature, as frogs are typically creatures that players would want to eliminate for resources, not befriend.

๐Ÿ’กThanking the bus driver

This is a feature in Fortnite where players can interact with the bus driver at the start of a match. Initially, it was just a fun, non-essential interaction, but it was later updated to allow players to 'tip' the driver with in-game currency for a sound effect. The video suggests this addition was unnecessary and somewhat absurd.

๐Ÿ’กModded shotguns with scopes

Modded shotguns with scopes refer to a change in Fortnite where shotguns, traditionally used for close-quarters combat, were given the ability to have scopes attached. The video argues that this addition is not very useful, as it doesn't significantly enhance the gameplay experience for these weapons.

๐Ÿ’กTrain on the map

The train is a feature added to Fortnite's map that was initially exciting to players. However, the video criticizes it for being underwhelming, with loot inside that was not as valuable as players had hoped and a time-consuming process to access the best items.

๐Ÿ’กZeus's lightning bolts

Zeus's lightning bolts were powerful items in Fortnite that could deal massive damage when combined with other mythic items. However, they were later nerfed, or weakened, to the point where they became much less effective and are now considered a letdown compared to their initial introduction.

๐Ÿ’กEmoticons

Emoticons in Fortnite are small icons that players can use to express emotions or actions. The video points out that these are often included as part of cosmetic sets but are rarely used by players, highlighting them as an example of a feature that doesn't add much value to the game.

๐Ÿ’กVictory crown

The Victory crown is an item in Fortnite that, when used, makes players temporarily invincible and highlights their location on the map. The video suggests that this feature is more of a hindrance than a help, as it draws attention to the player rather than providing a strategic advantage.

๐Ÿ’กReboot vans

Reboot vans are a feature in Fortnite that allows players who have been eliminated to return to the game if a teammate visits the van. The video questions their inclusion in solo modes, where they serve no purpose and only remind players that they are playing alone.

๐Ÿ’กDragon's breath shotgun

The Dragon's breath shotgun is a weapon in Fortnite that fires explosive shots. It was anticipated to be a powerful addition, but the video notes that it only proved effective in very close combat situations and could even backfire on the user.

๐Ÿ’กCrafting

Crafting was introduced in Fortnite as a way for players to upgrade their weapons by collecting resources. However, the video criticizes this feature for being more of a farming simulator than an exciting new gameplay mechanic, as it involved a lot of time spent gathering materials for minimal gains.

๐Ÿ’กWeather system

The weather system in Fortnite was a feature that added dynamic weather events like tornadoes and thunderstorms to the game. While it was initially popular, the video expresses disappointment that it was removed entirely from the game, as it added an element of unpredictability and excitement.
