In v15.20, Epic Games added a much-requested setting to Fortnite: ‘disable pre-edits.’ Here’s how it works and how to select it.
Finally, after years of Reddit threads, Twitter posts, and pro players begging, Epic added a ‘disable pre-edit’ setting to Fortnite.
Here’s everything you need to know about the new setting, including how it works and where to find it.
What does ‘pre-editing’ mean?
Pre-editing refers to the ability to edit a structure before placing it. The most popular use of pre-edits throughout Fortnite history was a cone/ramp edit when controller players had to use Combat Pro.
Now, however, very few players use pre-edits. Instead, pre-edits offer an obstacle, as they’re almost always completed by mistake. Of course, there are still some niche applications for pre-edits, but most players wanted Epic to add an option to disable these edits.
How to disable pre-edits
You can find the new option under the settings tab (cog wheel) in the start menu. Scroll down to the “Building” section, and you’ll see four options. One of them is the new “Disable Pre-Edit Option.”
If you turn this off, you’ll no longer be able to edit structures before placing them – good news for the bulk of the Fortnite community.
If may have taken Epic years to finally add this option, but it’s finally here. Next stop, an FoV slider!
Kevin the Cube could be returning to Fortnite, this time in the form of a skin, leaked by data miners in the v15.20 update.

According to Fortnite leaks, Epic are working on two skins that bring Kevin the Cube to life
Before the most recent Fortnitemares event, data miners found a file that related to an upcoming skin. This skin was called “Fancy Kevin,” and had players excited for what was to come. Some even suggested that the skin would be free for the event.
Well, Fortnitemares came and went with no new Kevin skin. After that, most people forgot about Fancy Kevin.
That was until the v15.20 update, where the previously-leaked Kevin skin got an update. Along with that was a new Kevin-themed skin that we hadn’t seen mentioned before.
The initial leak came alongside a leaked jetpack, which we assumed had something to do with Tony Stark. It wasn’t until Season 5 released that we learned that this was actually The Mandalorian’s Jetpack.
It seems like Fancy Kevin and his new partner will follow a similar path – leaked a whole season before their eventual release. There’s even a chance that these skins will be the Season 5 secret skin, although that’s a long-shot.
We’ll have to wait and see what becomes of Fancy Kevin, but it’s good to know that Epic haven’t forgotten about him.
It’s safe to assume that Fancy Kevin and his leaked counterpart will enter Season 5 at some point. As always, we’ll keep you posted when we learn more.

Epic Games have rolled out Fortnite patch v15.20, with a whole host of changes. While official patch notes are hard to come by these days, we’ve rounded up all of the new content.
The last few weeks in Fortnite have went by without many big tweaks to the gameplay experience, and certainly a lack of new skins and cosmetics compared to times gone by.
However, a whole host of new outfits have been leaked and that’s just the tip of the iceberg for this weekly update. A new Predator crossover has also been uncovered by dataminers, meaning Predator could soon arrive in-game – with a new ship, banner, and spray leaked.
Those are, of course, unconfirmed changes though, so let’s take a look at everything we’re certain of.
Fortnite v15.20 patch notes
Hop Rock Dualies
A new set of dual pistols have arrived in Fortnite, as seen below in a tweet from VastBlast.
New & Unvaulted weapons/items
There’s four new weapons and items coming into the loot pool (well, unvaulted as well) – seen below. This was also confirmed by VastBlast.
- Legendary Tactical Assault Rifle
- Rare Tactical Assault Rifle (All Rarities)
- Lever Action Shotgun
- Uncommon Snowy Flopper
At first, the leaker thought this Sawed Shotgun was going to be headed solely for Save the World, but it’s since been confirmed to be part of the update.
Some adjustments have been made to the Pre-Edits Option. Now, with ‘Disable Pre-Edits On,’ all player-built structures can’t be edited until they’re placed.

Fortnite has been adding a number of hunters since The Mandalorian first landed on the island, and it looks like Predator might be next – if leaks are accurate.
The game has seen some insane crossovers in the last year or two, including those from the DC Comics, Marvel and Star Wars universes.
Well, next on that list might be one of the deadliest extraterrestrial attackers.
On January 13, following the v15.20 update, dataminer Lucas7Yoshi revealed a new ‘Nightmare Ship’ leak for Fortnite.

As you can see, this is the ship of Predator, from the movie series that started in 1987.
Fortnite Predator ship, spray & banner leaked
Not only that, but VastBlast has doubled down on that with a new spray leak, which clearly shows Predator is on the way in some shape or form.
Based on the arrival of Mando in his Star Wars ship, we can likely expect to see Predator join the action soon as a boss on the map – just like other NPCs that have been added during the season.
Once we have more information, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
