SypherPK explains how he would change Fortnite Traps in Season 6

SypherPK discussed the removal of Fortnite Traps in a recent video, and explained how he would like to see them return in the future.

SypherPK is so knowledgeable on the subject of Fortnite Traps that it earned him the title of ‘Trap King’ in the battle royale. In a recent video, he made it clear that he hopes to see them return in Season 6 with some changes.

Fortnite players were once able to use Traps to dish out high amounts of damage to any unsuspecting opponent. They were a fun tool that encouraged creativity among fans in how they approached a match, but were eventually nerfed and later removed.

Epic Games vaulted Traps back in February 2020. Players were using them too often in a panic, and this would deal so much damage that the match felt unbalanced. This came as a blow to Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan, who was formerly known as the ‘Trap King.’

That said, he made it clear that he understands why Epic Games made this decision, and he hopes to see traps back in the future with a few alterations.

SypherPK’s proposed changes to traps

SypherPK is an expert on Fortnite Traps, as he was the first to create the ‘trap tower.’ The YouTuber talked about the recent vaulting of this feature in his video “Are Traps Gone Forever?” He elaborated on his hopes for the future of this mechanic in the battle royale.

“I loved using [Traps], especially because when a player wants to rush into your box without thinking, you can throw [one] down, and they’ll run into it,” he said. “You’ll get a really easy quick elimination.”

“But it started becoming a problem,” he added. “People would panic and throw a bunch of Traps down, and [they] did a lot of damage. Before they got vaulted, they were doing 150 damage.”

“Another problem [was], let’s say you got somebody weak, and they immediately threw down a Trap before they died,” he said. “Even though you got the kill, you end up walking into their Trap and dying or being severely hurt, and you feel kind of cheated.”

“So even though it was my all-time favorite weapon… a lot of times, it was just a spam fest,” he said. “Especially once they implemented auto trap placement, which made it very cheesy. Overall it was way too powerful and caused a lot of frustration.”

“I really do hope they eventually come back.  I do miss trapping people. It was one of my favorite things to do in Fortnite. [However], if [they] were to return, [players should need to] place the wall then place the Trap. Also, if [they] end up dying, [the] Trap should be disabled.”

SypherPK’s idea to nerf traps so that they can’t be spammed in a match are valid suggestions. He’s an expert on the subject of Fortnite traps so if Epic Games ever decide to bring them back, this is worth their consideration.

You can find and open various safes around Fortnite Island to obtain some Gold Bars, and one of the Season 6 Week 6 Epic Quests requires you to open three. Here’s how you can find these locations on the map.

You can tackle the Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 challenges for the opportunity to earn a bunch of extra XP. This can help you unlock some impressive new cosmetics while progressing through the Season 6 Battle Pass.

One of this week’s Epic Quests requires you to find and open three safes on Fortnite Island. We’ve decided to make things a bit easier for you by putting together all the safe locations in the battle royale.

Fortnite Season 6 Safe Locations

The good news is that you can find safes when visiting most POIs in Fortnite Season 6. Some of these areas have more safes than others, so you’ll want to look around in the more heavily populated ones.

Since the challenge only requires you to find and open three of them, you’ll want to visit one of the areas with the highest number of safes in them. These are Sweaty Sands, Craggy Cliffs, Dirty Docks, Holly Hedges, The Spire, and Pleasant Park.

You can take a look at all the safe locations in Fortnite Season 6 on the map below:

You’ll be able to complete this Epic Quest much quicker by visiting Sweaty Sands since it has a total of seven safes for you to open. Even if a few enemies come here for the same purpose, you’ll still find enough safes to open on your own.

You can take a look at the location of each safe within Sweaty Sands on the Fortnite map below:

There’s another safe hidden inside the building at the end of the pier, so you can visit that as well. Like with other Epic Quests, completing this challenge will award you 24,000 XP.

You can try completing the rest of the Epic Quests if you want to progress through the Battle Pass faster. There’s also a Legendary Quest available for a limited time period, so be sure to hop to it.

Batman skins in Fortnite Season 6

The Batman x Fortnite comic book run has tied in the DC Universe with the battle royale, and players can get their hands on some exclusive DC-themed skins, including Batman himself.

Epic Games have introduced various Fortnite crossovers with notable franchises like TerminatorStreet Fighter & Star Wars. Now, DC has entered the arena with its own set of popular characters like Batman.

The two franchises are combining together in the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comic book crossover. Purchasing each book in the series will grant you special items like character skins. Here’s how you can get them for yourself.

How to unlock Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit

Rebirth Harley Quinn is the first DC outfit that will become available to you after purchasing the Batman/Fortnite comic. We’ve known about this outfit ever since it was leaked by Fortnite data miners a while back.

As you can gather from the name, this outfit is based on Harley’s appearance during thee DC Rebirth run in the comics. She wears a red and black jacket, top and shorts, alongside red and blue pigtails.

Even if you decide not to pick up the comic book issue for yourself, you’ll still be able to get your hands on this skin when it becomes available in the Fortnite Item Shop in June 2021.

Armored Batman Zero Outfit

The Armored Zero Outfit for Batman can be seen in issue 2 of the Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point comic. If you want this item, then you’ll have to purchase all six issues of the crossover book. This implies that we might not see this outfit in the Item Shop.

We got our first look at the suit in the comic’s official trailer, and it boasts a very different design from the traditional Batman look. As the name implies, the new Outfit features more armor with a sleeveless survival aesthetic.

Deathstroke Outfit in Fortnite (Rumor)

A few leaks emerged recently, claiming that Epic Games are set on bringing another major DC Comics character to The Island in the form of the supervillain Deathstroke. He might become available to unlock as part of a future issue of the comic.

This information came from the same data miner that previously leaked the Harley Quinn skin, and they confirmed that Deathstroke is “100% becoming a skin in Season 6,” so we should expect to see him arrive soon.

While this seems likely, it’s worth keeping in mind that this is currently just a rumor, so take it with a grain of salt. Hopefully, Epic will confirm his arrival in the Fortnite through an official announcement soon. If they do, we’ll be sure to update this article.

The good news is that these landmarks aren’t particularly difficult to find if you know where to look on Fortnite Island. All of these are easily identifiable once you spot them, and two of them are fairly close to each other.

We’ve marked each of these locations on Fortnite’s map below:

Lockie’s Lighthouse is the easiest of these locations to find. It’s on its own little island in the Northern section of the map, right between Stealthy Stronghold and Craggy Cliffs. You’ll find it extremely difficult to miss.

As the name implies, Fancy View is a nice-looking house by the coast just northwest of Holly Hedges. If you head inside then you’ll find a ton of Rocket League merchandise lying around, so just stick to the road until you get there.

Finally, Rainbow Rentals is on the west coast of the Island and consists of five colorful huts on the beach. You can easily rotate there from Holly Hedges since it’s directly southwest of that area.

That covers all the locations of the landmarks that you have you have to visit in order to complete the Week 6 challenge. As with other Epic Quests, completing this challenge will award you 24,000 XP.
