Fortnite fans have wanted Epic Games to allow them to disable pre-editing structures for a long time. Now the developers have promised that they plan to put add this feature to Season 5 in the future.
Constructing and placing structures is one of the most notable aspects of Fortnite. You can build a variety of different forms that can be used as protective barriers, or for reaching high areas. However, pre-editing structures is something that doesn’t sit well with fans.
Pre-edits are preset structures that you can edit before placing them somewhere. This was once a helpful mechanic, but many players have lost games due to it. You might accidentally put a hole or opening in your design which will leave you vulnerable to enemies.
The problems with this feature have led to Fortnite players demanding that Epic Games implement a “Disable Pre-Edit” setting. This would allow players to turn it off so that they can’t accidentally pre-editing their structures before placing them.
We expected this to arrive in v15.10, but we discovered that this wasn’t the case when the update went live. Instead, the developers added a setting that lets you reset your pre-edits by leaving build mode, and then going back in.
This doesn’t resolve the issue, and most members of the community are united in that stance. Epic Games came to realize this, and made a post on the official Fortnite Status Twitter account, stating that they’re listening to fans’ complaints. They reassured players that they plan to adjust the setting in early 2021.
Pre-edits can be a huge hindrance when you’re in a hurry to build and edit something. Being able to disable them would allow you to select builds to edit in a more easily manageable state, regardless of what blueprint you’re holding at that moment.

Although it’s disappointing that the feature wasn’t implemented with the latest update, it’s still a relief to hear that we’ll be getting it soon. We’ve been waiting for this change for years, and it will be here in a few week’s time.
We’ll keep you updated when Epic Games finally add this feature to Fortnite Season 5. Until then, there’s a lot of other content to look forward to during Operation Snowdown.

Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass leak reveals Darth Vader and Indiana Jones skins
A Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 leak appears to have revealed that Darth Vader and Indiana Jones skins will feature on the new Battle Pass.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is almost here, and a major leak has allegedly revealed some of the new crossover skins fans can expect, including Star Wars’ Darth Vader and Indiana Jones.
With Season 2 nearing its conclusion, attention is beginning to turn to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 and what’s in store. One of the most exciting parts of any new season is seeing which new crossovers Epic has up its sleeve, after Obi-Wan Kenobi and even Wu-Tang Clan in Season 2.
Each new era comes with a new Battle Pass stuffed with plenty of skins to unlock, and Chapter 3 Season 3’s appear to have leaked ahead of time.
If the leak is to be believed, some beloved characters from classic films are set to finally make their debut in Fortnite.
In a May 25 tweet, respected Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR shared an image that seemed to suggest that Darth Vader and Indiana Jones are set to headline Chapter 3 Season 3.
The Battle Pass section pictured the iconic Star Wars villain alongside an original Fortnite skin, likely indicating that Vader will be the Level 100 unlock in the new season.
Indiana Jones, featuring the likeness of actor Harrison Ford, is also depicted on the “Coming Soon” tile. This could hint that the legendary archaeologist is the new secret skin, much like Marvel’s Prowler in Season 2.
The image came from 4chan, but the leaker claimed the chances of it being a fake mock-up were “extremely low.”
Rumors of Darth Vader coming to Fortnite as a skin have been swirling for some time, as plenty of other Star Wars characters like Rey, Kylo Ren, and The Mandalorian have all joined the battle royale in the past.

With the much-anticipated Obi-Wan series, which is set to see Hayden Christensen return as the disgraced Anakin Skywalker, releasing shortly before Season 3 gets underway, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Epic felt now was the right time.
Of course, this is all just speculation until the trailer for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 drops and the Battle Pass is revealed.
