Not a whole lot has actually changed on the map. We now have Dusty Depot instead Dusty Divot, which was teased ahead of the season’s release. But the biggest change is the addition of Rift Zones.Rift Zones”The Zero Point Explosion has made the island volatile! Locations once thought to be lost are beginning to appear, but they aren’t the same as they once were… Drop in and explore to discover what mysterious gameplay changes they have in store.” (Epic Games) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/3d/62/ultima-knight-ftr_e30ftpl5tbw81na2f741oblga.png?t=1292903980&w=500&quality=80 (Epic Games) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/d4/aa/fortnite-season-10-skins_19fk407qcor9u162olcnkrnz74.jpg?t=1293049028&w=500&quality=80 (Epic Games) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/3b/43/fortnite-season-10-changes_qhp5c8yfkf0m1tlucpm7tuvj8.png?t=1292692044&w=500&quality=80 (Epic Games) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/bf/1b/fortnite-season-10-map_7itlt76ui1vn1wt110xxxsbyv.png?t=1292485604&w=500&quality=80 MissionsNew to the Battle Pass this season are Missions. Missions will allow you to unlock rewards by completing a series of thematic objectives that will send you on adventures across the Island. As you complete these objectives, you’ll earn Battle Stars, XP, and exclusive cosmetic items. Fortnite Season 10 patch notesAs we mentioned before, the addition of the B.R.U.T.E. is easily one the main new features of Season 10.Here’s how Epic Games describes it:Few suits make you feel as powerful as a mech suit does. In this two-person vehicle, players can control its movement while their partner controls its firepower. Those feeling extra adventurous can operate it solo by switching between moving and shooting!And some additional features of the B.R.U.T.E.:This vehicle can be operated by up to two players. If two players are operating it, one (the driver) controls movement, while the other (the gunner) rains down missiles and shotgun shots.The driver is able to: Dash into combat, Super Jump to victory, Stomp enemies and structures into the ground (Anything you would normally harvest will grant materials when destroyed)The passenger has two weapons at their disposal: a shotgun and a missile launcher.Shotgun: Clip Size: 10, Damage: 50, Headshot Multiplier: 1.5xMissile Launcher: Fires up to 10 missiles at once, Holding down Trigger will begin loading missiles, After releasing Trigger, or after 10 missiles have been loaded, all missiles will automatically fire.New Mechanic: Overshield: Consumes 200 of any Material type to create a personal overshield for 5 seconds to protect you in the mech.Vaulted from the game are:BallerQuad CrasherFlint Knock PistolShadow BombSemi-Auto SniperTactical Assault RifleMounted TurretAir StrikeItemized Glider RedeployAs you can obviously tell, a lot of mobility has been removed from the game. No more Baller, Quad Crasher or Glider Redeploy. In explaining this move, Epic Games says: “Over time, we have added many mobility options, both itemized and map-based. We feel that Season X is better experienced with a reduction in mobility. As with all changes, we’ll keep a close eye on how this affects the player experience.”There were also a few bug fixes and a few changes made to Arena Game Mode. For the full rundown, you can visit Epic Games’ release.Fortnite Season 10 Map Fortnite Season 10 Battle PassThe Fortnite Season 10 Battle Pass offers vver 100 exclusive rewards to unlock. It costs the same 950 V-bucks and will get you the X-Lord and Catalyst Outfits instantly. As you continue to level up, you’ll unlock more rewards such as dual pickaxes, emotes, loading screens, outfit styles, and more. At Tier 100, you’ll unlock the Ultima Knight Outfit. In addition to everything that’s new, there’s also plenty of things that are now gone (RIP Ballers). The Zero Point Explosion has also led to a few map changes, most notably the introduction of Rift Zones. It also sounds like Epic Games plans on changing things up quite a bit throughout Season 10 as the narrator in the trailer video says, “The world you play today may not be the world you play tomorrow.”We’ll now dive in to more detail with all of these changes. After a lot of anticipation, Season 10 (or Season X) of Fortnite is finally here, and it offers a lot of changes.The most notable change is the addition of the new mech vehicle, called B.R.U.T.E. The B.R.U.T.E. is a giant robot you can walk around in and shoot rockets out of. If it sounds ridiculous in text, that’s because it actually is ridiculous in gameplay. We have more details on the B.R.U.T.E. later in this post.
THIBODAUX, La. –The Nicholls Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) committed its efforts to fighting hunger on the Colonels’ campus. The Colonels partnered with Mom’s Pantry in order to combat on-campus food insecurity within the Thibodaux community, collecting nonperishable, ready-to-eat meals and toiletries to disperse among Nicholls students in need.The SAAC-led event was set up prior to the Thanksgiving in order to collect food for students who were unable to travel home for the holiday. The goal was to provide these students an opportunity to obtain a free and accessible meal during the Thanksgiving holiday. Within the opening four hours of the food drive, the SAAC collected 625 items.“As student-athletes, we were excited to give back to our peers and provide meals to those who need them,” said Nicholls’ SAAC President Emily Venable. “No student should have to struggle to find their next meal, especially during the holidays. We hope that our donations lessen the burden on these students.”Mom’s Pantry is located on the Nicholls campus and is a pantry packed with food that is openly accessible to students at all times throughout the school year. The program is part of the Helio Foundation, which was created to address high rates of food insecurity on university campuses, including the Thibodaux community.As part of the “Southland Gives Back” initiative, the Southland Conference will profile a community service outing from each of our 13 member institutions this holiday season.
“It’s the best it’s (felt), but I still don’t have my timing down,” Walton said. “All I’ve been doing is running so hopefully the next couple days will help me get back. … I felt like a fat, unathletic kid out there. “I want to play with the pain, as long as the strength is there. All game long, you’re stepping on people’s feet, but your ankle is strong enough to handle it. I don’t want to step on someone’s foot and roll over it.” Brown, out since Dec. 31 with a sprained ankle, seems to be experiencing a bit more pain. “I don’t want to be running up and down the court with pain,” Brown said. “Everybody deals with some pain. If it’s a sharp pain that goes away right away, that’s fine, but I don’t want to be running with pain.” Since timing and stamina are issues for both players, it is in both players’ interest not to return against Phoenix, a team that loves to push the tempo. In Brown’s case, it might mean delaying his return. EL SEGUNDO – After several weeks of strife and frustration, smiles and optimism abounded Tuesday afternoon as the suddenly hot Lakers watched Kwame Brown and Luke Walton run the practice court. Winners of three in a row, including an impressive road victory over Utah on Monday, the Lakers spoke about turning a corner and should have Walton back Friday against Sacramento. “I don’t want to go back into the Indy 500 right away,” Brown joked. Under the weather: Kobe Bryant, who dealt with a sore throat and a hyperextended elbow in Utah, did not practice but didn’t seem particularly concerned about any of his ailments. “I’m feeling a lot better,” Bryant said. “I have three days here to rest and recuperate a little.” Andrew Bynum did not attend practice because of flu-like symptoms, a team spokesman said. Welcome back: After fourweeks of searching, the Lakers finally found the Lamar Odom of old. Odom, who has been inconsistent after missing six weeks with a knee injury, had 19 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists against the Jazz in his most complete effort since the injury. “Statistically, I did well,” Odom said. “When you replay the game there are always things you could have done better. I feel a lot better, especially playing back-to-back games. My wind is coming back.” [email protected] (818) 713-3611 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The news wasn’t as good for Brown, who probably will sit out Friday’s game, as well as Sunday’s game at Phoenix but expects to return for Tuesday’s game at Minnesota. Walton, out since Jan. 26 with a moderate ankle sprain, showed good mobility at the end of practice but struggled a bit with his shot and said he still had some work to do in order to get in game shape.
