Epic Games is adding a new rewards system to Fortnite called Fortnite Drops. Link your Epic Games account and YouTube account to earn special rewards.

In order to get the special cosmetic rewards in Fortnite, you’ll need to watch 20 minutes of footage from specific YouTube Premier streams. There are going to be multiple times that you can accrue the needed 20 minutes of time watched, though if you want to get every single reward, you’ll have to watch 20 minutes from each individual stream.

Fortnite Adds Practice Mode So You Don't Have to Die Right Away

· Jeff Gamet · Cool Stuff Found

Fortnite is amazingly popular battle royale shooter game, but horribly frustrating for new players because it’s far too easy for new players to die before they really get started. Epic Games fixed that with a new version 4.5 update that adds a multi-player practice mode where you get an hour of play time to learn the ropes. You can build structures, practice with weapons, and more. The update also adds double pistols, a thermal scope assault rifle, stink bombs, and more weapons. Fortnite is a free download on Apple’s App Store.
