Fortnite players have been anticipating a major overhaul in the inventory system, and it seems to be delivered sooner than expected. Preferred Item Slots in Fortnite seem to be happening as soon as next week.

Fortnite is probably the best example of a game that has grown significantly over time and never disappointed its community with odd changes. Although the core of Fortnite is still the same as its launch version, the variety of activities included inside a Battle Royale experience have been increased dramatically over the past few years.

Although Fortnite‘s gameplay growth has not been as speedy as its content growth, Epic Games tries to add community-demanded features every now and then. Probably the upcoming inventory update for Fortnite is what the fans have been anticipating for a long time.

What is the Preferred Item Slots Feature in Fortnite?

Simply put, this feature allows you to have better control over your inventory. Thanks to this new system, you will be able to assign a specific type of item – like snipers, healers, grenades – to the desired slot in your inventory. So, whenever you pick up a grenade, it will move into its own place in the inventory.

This is a huge upgrade for the game’s inventory system since its launch. The main purpose of the update is to allow players to assign specific buttons to specific mechanics. Also, this will make it easier to replace items within the same category.

Fortnite is now available for free on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Android.
