Standard package is perfectly fine. There are upgrade options available in-game for the difference (so, $20 to upgrade from the Standard to Deluxe edition) if you end up liking the game. I picked up standard and am having a blast so will probably upgrade to Deluxe on payday this week.

I'm curious, if I buy a free gift pack off of someone else, can I upgrade that gifted pack? Would at least save me some money if I want a higher pack. If anyone wants to sell a key for $20 I might be interested, I see $15-20 is the current price on epicnpc and other third party sites, but I'd rather have someone more trustworthy. PM me on Discord Akumos#9076

I have a few more beginner packs left if anyone is interested, just PM me.

I'm looking to grab a gift key but would like to get it at $20 since literally every person on epicnpc is selling it for that price. I just don't trust them as much, but I'm about to risk it soon if no one here sells that low. I don't have PMs. Akumos#9076 is my discord if you want that deal.

Well I am quite pleased with this. Provided that you can get the pathing sorted out, Orcs Must Die level kill boxes are totally achievable. Got the horde to all turn this one corner filled with wall darts, electric zappers and floor spikes. With some minor supplemental shooting (save for a smasher which needed to be put down), everything died on that one corner. Floor spikes are the tar pits of this game, the husks are slowed to a crawl if they have to walk on spikes. This allows everything else the time to rearm and fire efficiently. If you absolutely know where they are going, you can supplement this with low walls in their way fitted with wall spikes and other low wall traps. Shame that traps have "ammo" associated with them. Eventually you will have to replace a trap that runs dry.

If you wanna be a trap specialist, it is completely viable. It might be possible to solo missions, though you are going to have to put down a lot of resources to do that. I hope through the later levels that trap recipes remain cheap.

Could probably duo with Outlander + Soldier if you just have them gather a poo poo ton?

Maybe add this to OP and FYI: You can change your FOV to be bigger based on your aspect ratio

Open the Engine.ini file with Notepad
At the bottom, add the following:

[/script/engine.localplayer]
AspectRatioAxisConstraint=AspectRatio_MaintainYFOV

Location(akumos is my comp obv)


Also mouse accel is on for some dumb reason and you can disable it in that same folder in gameusersettings, set it to bDisableMouseAcceleration=True

I know it's probably personal preference, but what setting do you think looks best with 16:9 monitors?

Aim isn't super important in this game but actually seeing what the gently caress is happening around you kind of is so I think the better FOV is more important and looks better.

Reshade works well with Fortnite and helps remove the AA blur + makes it more vibrant.

Use the same method you use for PUBG shown here, but use my pic below to see what file to modify instead.

Max AA/Textures(no PP/shadows) without reshade. https://puu.sh/wUnBQ/c2e1bf719c.png

Same but with Adaptive sharpen + clarity rehsade. https://puu.sh/wUo0s/5ee0933fbc.png

Now adding Technicolor2 on top of it, makes everything more vibrant and cartoony which I like. https://puu.sh/wUo2u/12e691af34.png

Basically no performance impact that I saw, maybe a couple FPS max if that.

Read this before you buy llamas, or at least regular ones. The specific legendary llamas appear to be way more efficient for getting base upgrades, regular llamas are for upgrade materials with these rates.

https://www.reddit.com/r/FORTnITE/c...lamas_and_luck/

Based on his stats, you get like 10-12 legendary guns over $600 spent, whereas you could get 13.5 for $100 with the current gun llama. His total legendaries was like 63, but if you spent $600 on similar individual item crates, you would guarantee 81 legendaries for that price. For anyone who has daily llamas stored, the way to go if you plan on buying anything is definitely waiting for the specific ones and using the others for materials. Though I think Mythic quality only comes out of upgrade llamas? With that said he only got 3 unique Mythics out of $600 and they were all survivors, it's not worth going for those at all. You would be lucky to get 1 mythic per $100 spent.

You will not progress nearly as fast not spending money in this game, but also don't need to do it to enjoy the game. Though I've read you can't even progress past a certain point without paying because the money you use to buy llamas stops appearing.

I read you can leave games and keep the resources you gained in that game. If that's the case, couldn't you and 3 friends setup supply drop farms while building where you just enter games, all do a supply drop and collect them, then leave and repeat til max resources again?

If you maze/funnel strat is failing it's because you didn't build enough deterrents on the outside. You need to stack multiple walls.

Anyone notice some guns, shotguns specifically, being bugged and giving their bonus stats before the level thresholds? My two shotguns seem to have all of their bonus stats applied to them already, it shows the higher crit values on the gun, whereas it doesn't do that for my rifles until I level them up.

FORT stats? I'm sitting at 240/223/149/258 with level 20 rare/epic heroes and lv20 epic guns and poo poo's dying pretty fast. Make sure your hero squad (not survivor squads, but them too) is leveled up as well, they share some of their stats with you.

Your hero squad only shares hp/shield, and their bonus ability, no?

People who think shotguns are bad need to try epic/leg auto shotguns upgraded to lv15-20, esp with Energy conversion. Mag dumping that on bigger mobs is insane damage.
