After just adding it to the game in a matter of hours, the new "Boom Box" element in Fortnite Battle Royale gets some negative feedback, especially from competitive communities.
With the WSOE $ 100,000 Fortnite tournament taking place on December 30, the same day the new item was added, there are concerns that there will be too much change in the gameplay.
Boom Box is a throwable element that excludes absolutely any nearby building, making it an extremely powerful tool considering how the basic building is in the core mechanics.
The new "Boom Box" in Fortnite instantly increases eyebrows.
Shortly after it was added on December 30 in v7.10 Content Update # 2, players immediately discovered just how devastating Boom Box can be.
Top Twitch streamer Tyler & # 39; Ninja & # 39; Blevins commented that competing players can have an interesting experience while practicing at least.
Enjoy scriming in fortune with the new object LOL

Professional players, such as CLG's WishYaLuckk, were unhappy to see such a game change added the same day as the $ 100,000 tournament.
I'm going to play for 100K in a totally unaffiliated tournament for epic games, and epic games have still added a game that breaks the item hours before it.
I am. So. Sad. LMAOOO

Competitive Player & # 39; WhosDixon & # 39; struck out on Epic Games to "turn over the players" with new things, on the day of a major event.
I don't think Epic realizes what they do with the composition. You make everything SUPER unpredictable at this time. This is already a problem due to last minute events / not many happening as it is.

Streamer Brent & # 39; Dakotaz & # 39; Hoffman posted a clip of the new element in action, explaining that it makes the building, especially in the central game, almost ineffective.
Fortnite was formerly a fire to add Infinity Blade, which also destroyed competitive games in many. Shortly afterwards, Epic reveals an apology and removed the item from all playlists.
Although the Boom Box may not be a game break such as Infinity Blade, it certainly poses a problem for the late game's "build-offs", where structures are the key to victory.
