POPULARSMGs Secretly Nerfed by Epic? - On Console
This is an interesting one, a Reddit user is claiming that SMGs were secretly nerfed by Epic on the console versions of Fortnite. I don't know if this is true or not, but it's interesting to think about. Have any of you noticed this nerf? Here's what Reddit user had to say:
"No, you haven't suddenly gotten worse at the game. A couple months ago, a significant change to aim assist was made in an attempt to fix an abuse of the mechanic. Some people would constantly re-aim or spam ADS at close ranges to become extremely accurate with sub machine guns. In order to fix this, a change was made to weaken aim assist on these weapons. It wasn’t in the patch notes but it was pretty clear when it happened"

FIRST AND FOREMOST, Go to the Looking For Teammates section and slam that Post button, which looks like this, except less pixelated:
Once you've done that, follow these steps to get your teammate-seeking started:
1. CHOOSE A PLATFORM
Pick the platform you play on, and want to find your teammates on.
2. SELECT A MODE
Do you want to run with a squad, or a duo with your best friend? Maybe you wanna save the world, or maybe you wanna save the world again? Either way, pick what you're interested in doing.
3. INPUT A GAMER ID
This is also known as your username, gamertag, handle, friend code, etc etc etc - whatever you identify as IN THE PLATFORM YOU CHOOSE. NOT your Moot username!*
*Note that stats may not appear unless you use your Epic username.
4. SELECT YOUR MIC OPTIONS
Feeling talkative? Not feeling talkative? Luckily there's a switch for that. Press the switch on your post if you do (or don't) require a mic for your play.
5. PICK A PLAYER AMOUNT
How many people are you recruiting? Is it for this one game? Is it for a clan, or a team? Or two? OR THREE? Whatever you decide, you can choose how many players you're looking for - up to a maximum of 99. Seriously.
6. PICK A DATE
When do you want you and your squad to roll through? ASAP, or maybe tomorrow? How about next week, or next month? Choose a date and prepare for battle.
7. ATTACH THE LFG
Once you've set everything up and you're ready to go, hit the Attach button in the top-right of your LFG.
8. FINISH YOUR POST
Once attached, your LFG will be bound to a normal post in which you can edit and decorate with all the usual Moot goodies - GIFs, memes, polls, videos and images!
Slap that done button with the fattest finger you got (or whatever finger, it's up to you, you could even use your nose) and kick back!
Using the new LFG feature will give you a massive advantage over other players, will help you find friends, and maybe even new teams or clans - all done quickly and easily when you use Moot!

POPULARnew fortnite skins - nfl uniforms come to fortnite
I guess this is cool. I'm usually pretty stoked when new skins come out, but this time I'm just not feeling it. I guess it's because I don't really care about American Football. American Handball is not actually football that's what soccer actually is. Now I'd be stoked if Epic brought us uniformes from different European Football teams (like Barcelona for example).

POPULARREPOST: Why Fortnite died to me
This is a repost because i feel like this post didnt really come threw...
Before I start I wanna say that, after my kind of long break, I finally collected many Ideas and thoughts for some posts to share on this platform. I hope you'll like them and find them Interesting. Thanks :) And sorry for my probably bad grammar.
⚠️⚠️WARNING! THIS IS ALL BASED ON MY OWN OPINION!⚠️⚠️
I started playing Fortnite over one year ago when Battle Royale wasn't even a thing in the game yet. Basically Save the word only!
I had a lot of fun with PvE. I played it for hours every single day. A month or so later the Battle Royale mode came out without me even noticing the first time I logged in.
After a long play session of farming materials for my Storm Shield base, I noticed that there was a new button under Safe the World called: "Battle Royal". I clicked on it not expecting to much. I played one round and fell in love with it. It was something new... something fresh, not like these other Royal games (PUBG, H1Z1,...). It was bright, colourful and had some new mechanics like building Walls n' stuff.
Back then the game was not to hyped and it was fun because I was actually pretty good at it.
A week later the new mode came out for everyone to play for free. I told my friends about it and we had a great time. The game started growing in popularity and it began getting updated and improved almost every week on and on. It became better and better. New things were added. Unlockable stuff like the Makko glider and a new player icon. Also the shop was added with items that you could buy with V-Bucks if you had reached a certain season level.
After a few weeks or months season 2 came out adding the Battle Pass to the game which I thought was an neat idea. I didn't get it though because I just wasn't ready paying money for some skins and dance emotes.
And just a few months later season 3 hit the scene introducing many more skins, emotes and Player icons. It wasn't to big of a thing for me though... I mean they added Tilted Towers the 2nd worst thing they have probably done yet.
Season 4 brought even more Skins, even more emotes and new stuff like fall animations. Also the meteor that was teased in season 3 didn't hit Tilted like it should have. It instead landed in the centre of the map and destroyed a bit of Dusty Depot and my favourite landing spot that me and my Friends called "Factory".
Also building became a even bigger thing than before. In the beginning only building a 1x1 fort was already impressive but now everyone started building like crazy, what kinda took some fun for me because it was not about who's the best shooter anymore but more like who's the fastest builder. The game also started rising in popularity a lot lot more. Twitch was (is) filled with it, YouTube was (is) full of "Omg undressing GF for every Kill", "Killing Ninja LMAO" and shit like that what annoyed me a lot. Especially when even my mother started asking question about this "Fortnite" thing that her 1st graders (my moms a teacher) are talking about.
It even, for me,ruined my favourite YouTuber, Muselk, who before Fortnite was famous for Tf2, my most loved game of all time, who now started click baiting Fortnite with millions and millions of views on every video.
But not only the whole Real life and social media thing started freaking out, the game got horrible new weapons and horrible new changes in general.
At this point, especially after season 5 an 6 I stopped playing the game for fun... only if my friends really wanted to.
In conclusion this means that I loved Fortnite with its "smaller" community, old weapons, old map, old Gameplay.
I hope this whole post is not to big of a mess and was readable even tho it's probably a little bit here and there but... yeah.
Anything to add or ask? Let me know.
