The community’s consensus for Fortnite Chapter 2 is surprisingly positive, minus a few highly infuriating additions. We decided to list some of our top picks

No building over pre-built structures

This one is probably the longest annoyance the community thought would be fixed with the arrival of Chapter 2. Take a look for yourself, and you’ll see what I’m talking about

The real problem here is that you’d assume a wall could be placed there - since it’s mostly empty space. That is, at least, how the community thinks it should work. Adding to the confusion, Fortnite is inconsistent with where they apply the “no building” rule. In some places, your builds will override the pre-built structure. In other places? Tough luck, kid

If Epic added more consistency regarding where our builds can be placed, it’ll save a lot of rage (and keyboards) moving forward

Grenade and explosive spam

If you’ve played scrims at all for Chapter 2, you probably died to this once or twice and know all too much about what I am about to say. Take a look at meta-master and NRG player EdgeyFN to see how an over diluted explosive item loot pool affects competitive play

Given how abundant explosives are, having multiple teammates chuck ‘em at a turtled opponent simultaneously is a sure-fire handful of kills. The problem is quite prominent in comp playlists due to how the meta revolves around camping in a 1x1. Epic, for the love of God, please nerf explosive spam

No more EJ Dash :,(

This one hits me right in the feels. Nothing like hitting a dope EJ dash in creative after getting your opponent down to 50 HP. Talk about a Twitter clip! EJLad originated the trick after he found out that placing a stair while phasing through it would give you a slight boost as you jumped out

With the new update, Fortnite has effectively nerfed the EJ Dash out of existence. Now, phasing will slow you down, similar to jump fatigue… #BringBackEJDash
