Fortnite Metal Gear Solid Map Takes Players Through MGS History

Fortnite players spend a lot of time crashing into the Battle Royale game, but also creating some of the most amazing maps you’ve ever seen. First came the recreation of Rapture in this Bioshock map. Now a player takes us through the history of Metal Gear Solid with a tribute to Hideo Kojima’s definitive stealth game.

Creative mode is a real pleasure to play, but only the most committed players will be able to recreate board games, or even have their maps shared by the official Fortnite Twitter like this map inspired by Fall Guys, and this World of Deathrun map of parkour. However, some map creators don’t have the ability to release codes, and this Metal Gear Solid map shows just how flawed that system can be.

NaoEdwin is the creator of this awesome map, and while we can’t explore it because they haven’t secured the publishing rights, we can still watch the two videos they posted. The first map contains the majority of the gameplay, with some Codec cutscenes and the first moments of Metal Gear Solid. It’s fun to see how NaoEdwin has created the same feel of using Fortnite’s interactive items and weapons, and watching them still stuff on enemies to take them out stealthily is a lot of fun.

The blizzard in the second section of the first video is also very impressive. It obscures a bit everything from view, but adds an immense amount of ambience and precision to the playtime. They must also use a silenced gun to eliminate enemies from afar and hunt down different objects to progress through the level properly. If you end up watching the whole thing, you can check out part two on the same thread. We just hope that Epic eventually allows this person to properly publish their maps.

In more official – but no less surprising – Fortnite crossover news, the date for the Dragon Ball event has now been officially announced. Also, if you’re not a fan of stealth, you should try to use the Ripsaw launcher as often as possible.
