    so, the first thing I did yesterday was watch a replay. challenge didn't register at first but then I googled it and saw the challenge was broken. mysteriously, like many hours after I watched a replay, it said I completed the challenge so I thought it was fixed. log on today and see they replaced the replay challenge with revive players. however, it did not take away my battle stars from the replay challenge so essentially imma get an extra 5 stars when I revive people.

    tldr: score one for the little guy

    Apparently the Rubber Ducky challenge isn’t working for me. I found over 10 different ducks and they haven’t registered. It says I only found 4

    Edit: And now it isn’t registering the sniper rifle eliminations. Seems like my challenges are broken

    Are the snipers in solos? Because I downed someone with a hunting rifle in 50v50, shot them again when they were down, but it didn’t count as a sniper elimination. It’s kind of precise, I guess.


    The ducks are just a glitch, I guess. I once got the treasure map star in a 50v50 and it didn’t count so I’d believe it.

    50v50 seems to be the problem. Only certain challenges can be done there. I tried out a solo match this morning and completed both challenges.

    50v50 seems to only be good for revivals, pistol damage, tilted eliminations and finding the chests at lonely lodge

    Week 4 challenges leaked:

    Deal damage to opponents with Assault Rifle [0/1000] (5)
    Search chests in Wailing Woods [0/7] (5)
    Search 7 ammo boxes in a single match [0/7] (5)
    Visit the centre of different storm circles in a single match [0/3] (5)
    Search between a Bench, Ice Cream Truck and Helicopter [0/1] (10)
    Trap Eliminators [0/1] (10)
    Eliminate opponents in Snobby Shores [0/3] (10)

    The visiting centre of three different storm circles in a single match is going to be difficult. And trap eliminations will be annoying since the nerf.

    I feel like the storm circle one will be annoying, but doable. Trap eliminations shouldn't be that bad at all actually since its an elimination and not an outright kill. Get into a duos or squads game, down your opponent or find one who's already down, and just build a little base around them while lining the walls with traps. If you do it quick enough, chances are they'll move and boom, challenge done.

    7 ammo boxes is more of an annoying one.

    Hope this game dies once BO4, BFV, and RDR2 come out

    If anything, it's picking up steam and making gameplay fresh and different. It's gotten popular enough that BO4 is going to copy the battle royale mode. It's not going to die for quite some time

    ppl got a weird vitriol for this game. Maybe cause of the art direction, or the fact that it's the most popular game. I really can't tell , but I'm kinda happy its coming in from the outside looking in. The actual Fortnite community (albeit very young) is one of the most pleasant gaming communities i've been apart of.

    Lol, why? If you don't like it, don't play it. It's pretty simple.

    Used an old giftcard to get the Save the World since I heard it was pretty fun. It's grindy but is more fun than I thought it would be. It's actually helped me a tiny bit with building and I learned how to edit with it lol. I also in only two days of playing grinded out 1200 VBucks which I used to buy the Battlepass, which in turn has made BR more fun because of all the weekly challenges. And all for me spending $0. I'd recommend it even if for just grinding out VBucks.

    I finished my Week 4 challenges in a few hours.

    - The trap elimination wasn't too bad, but the community seems to actually help you a little on this one. I downed an opponent and placed a trap and he went straight into it. I ended up having to do it again, though, and got an emery down, shot them once and placed the trap. Not bad, really. A little annoying.

    - The middle of the storm was, by far, the most difficult. A lot of people will be waiting near the middle for you. I recommend doing it in the Solid Gold LTM and hoping you have a decent team. It helps that our game ended at Loot Lake so it was easier to get around.

    Sometimes I watch other people as a spectator and it looks like they're using a mouse peripheral, is that possible on ps4?

    I know you can use a keyboard and mouse on consoles.

    Does anyone else wish there was a mode with no building or just significantly less building?

    I prefer Fortnite's less focus on loot and more on action to something like PUBG, but I just can't get over how cheesy it is for everyone's first reaction to everything is to build some cover or giant building.
