A leaker has confirmed that players will no longer be able to make Fortnite’s superhero skin completely black or white after the v15.30 update, removing its “pay-to-win” feature.

Fortnite players have long been complaining about the “pay-to-win” superhero skin in Fortnite. This skin aims to be completely customizable, where you choose its color scheme and logos.

Some players have been taking advantage of its color-changing capabilities and using it to be completely black, concealing them in the darkest corners of Fortnite Chapter 2’s island.

The problem is especially prominent for console players, where they are unable to disable shadows, so can only hope a player isn’t hiding in the shadows. To make matters worse, not everyone has access to the skin as it must be purchased, so players are calling it “pay-to-win.”

A leaker has revealed that they will be making a significant change to Fortnite’s superhero skin.

Fortnite will remove all-black superhero skin

After fan backlash, Epic Games confirmed on January 8 they will be fixing this issue. In a Reddit thread regarding the skin, Epic Games employee, u/gstaffEpic, said they’re looking at it and thanked everyone for raising the issue.

Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR revealed on January 28 what this fix will entail.

“Starting in v15.30, you can no longer make your Superhero skins completely black or white,” said the leaker. “If you’re longer satisfied with your purchase, you can request a refund after the v15.30 has been released.”

Players also complained that the all-white variant would hide crosshairs, but removing the black color will be the most significant change.

Rather than scrapping the skin entirely, they have made adjustments to stop players from abusing the broken color scheme. They have done this in the past, changing the color of the green Plastic Patroller to stop the skin from blending in with grassy environments.

Epic seems to understand why so many people have bought this skin and will be offering refunds after the removal of this feature. It’s unlikely it’ll cost a ticket to refund this skin, as Epic have made a significant change to it.

How to crouch in Fortnite

Crouching is a common action that players perform in Fortnite to line up a shot or stay low. Here’s a guide on how to crouch.

How to Crouch in Fortnite

Fortnite consists of several keybinds by default, each of which performs a different action. One of the common actions that players perform is a crouch to line up their shot with accuracy or to hide from their opponents. Here’s how you can crouch in Fortnite.

Movement mechanisms in Fortnite have evolved over time since the OG days in Chapter 1. Crouching has been around since Chapter 1 in Battle Royale, however, players of Fortnite’s PvE campaign Save The World did not have it at first.

As new mechanics of Sprint, Slide and Mantle were added to Chapter 3, all movement mechanics in Fortnite became common across its PvP and PvE modes. Players use crouch frequently whenever they want to hide or line up a shot against their opponents.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to crouch in Fortnite.

PC Controls in Fortnite

Crouching in Fortnite is pretty simple. However, the controls vary across different platforms and input methods. The default keybind to crouch on PC is the Left Ctrl key. However, you can also change the key according to your preference as well.

PS4 controls in Fortnite

When it comes to the controller, the default button in Standard configuration on a PS4 is the L1 button and Xbox is the LB button. However, if you use the Combat Pro controller configuration, the crouch action will bind to pressing Right Analog Joystick or R3 button on your controller.

The difference between the two configurations is that the Right stick in Combat Pro only allows the crouch action upon tapping and not holding as compared to an assigned button in Standard mode. While there is a debate between players on the two modes, they tend to use the tap action to use the stick to look around while crouching.


There are various ways you can move around Fortnite island. Whether it’s sliding down a hill or sprinting away from your opponent or mantling over their builds, these mechanics will help you survive and get you that Victory Royale.

How to flip a car in Fortnite

One of the most enjoyable things to do in Fortnite is driving cars. However when you wreck a car, here’s how you can flip it back upright.

How to flip a car in Fortnite

Fortnite players have their fair share of fun around the island while fighting for their survival. Cars have been a vital element of that fun as players cause carnage around the island while they drive. Here’s how to flip a car in Fortnite to get it back on track.

Cars have been one of the most popular vehicles in Fortnite. Before they were introduced, players were just breaking them to harvest materials as cars were just a mere prop in the game.

But ever since cars became a part of the island as a vehicle, players have been driving around the island, fueling their cars up, tuning into radio stations, modding them, and eliminating their enemies by driving past them.

However, sometimes when players make a wrong turn or drive the car up a ramp or a hill, it tends to get overturned and wrecked. To bring it back to its original state, here’s how you can flip a car in Fortnite.

Flipped Car in Fortnite

Flipping a car in Fortnite Season 3 is pretty simple. All you need to do is either find an overturned car or you can overturn one yourself. You can either run it off a hilltop or build a ramp and drive off it to do the same.

Once it’s overturned, here’s how you can flip it back on its wheels:

  1. Approach the overturned vehicle.
  2. Press the interact button on your keyboard (E by default), or controller (Square on PlayStation and X on Xbox) to flip the car.
  3. And you’re done! You have successfully flipped a car and it’s ready for you to drive.

However, you need to be mindful of your surroundings as your nearby opponents can hear you start and drive a car around them. So get those driving gloves on and drive as fast as you can to leave your opponents in the storm.


Apart from cars, other vehicles like Ballers and the Armored Battle Bus are currently in-game as well. You can use these to roam around the island as you like and have some fun as No Sweat Summer comes to a close in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.
