Fortnite: Compact SMG Further Nerfed, Building Gets Slightly Stronger

The current Fortnite meta got another small shakeup with a few building changes and a reduction of damage and other stats for the infamous Compact SMG.

Back in the v5.1 patch update, the initial health of a building segment the moment its put up was reduced. Some of those changes are now reverted with a wood wall getting a bump from 80 HP to 90, stone walls going from 80 to 100, and metal segments jumping from 80 to 110.

Both the epic and legendary variation of the Compact SMG are now a little less powerful with damage reduced from 22/21 to 21/20. The clip size also took a hit going from 50 to 40.

The Drum Gun got the biggest nerf with decreases in accuracy while jumping and targeting, increased damage fall off based on distance, additional environmental damage fall off based on player damage fall off, and a 40% decrease in its spawn rate.

Rebecca de Ravenel Plots Further Expansion

Rebecca de Ravenel, she of the tri-ball “Bon Bon” statement earring that set off a global trend and inspired innumerous knock-offs, is moving onward and upward from the spherical style.
The designer first introduced ready-to-wear last season — an outing that proved successful, with the clothing category growing to become half her business. All but one of her stockists picked up the ready-to-wear offering for spring. Come this month, the clothes will hit the racks of stores including Barneys New York, Fivestory, The Webster, Kirna Zabête and
This season she will expand upon on that collection — offering a new season’s worth of wares inspired by the concept of a confident woman sitting in The Carlyle Hotel’s library, awaiting an evening’s date at the opera. The collection will be shown to press tomorrow.
“When I start designing something, I always think about where a woman is sitting in a specific room. She is smart, she knows who she is, she is very in touch with her femininity — everything is quite covered because I like long things, but with shapes to accentuate the waist. The pants have boning in [them], owning to a certain sophistication,” de Ravenel said.
For the collection, de Ravenel

‘Awkward’: Jenna Slips Further Into Her Bad Girl Phase, Gets Caught Smoking Pot With Collin

Is Collin a bad influence for Jenna on “Awkward“? This week, he convinced her to give marijuana a try, which seemed to quickly push her into the world of teenage pothead. Suddenly, she wanted to light up any time life started stressing her out. One of the things stressing her out was the fact that she’d lost all of her friends. In fact, other than Collin and pot, she had no one and nothing. This is not the lovable Jenna who started the series.

All teens go through experimental phases, but with each passing week this one is becoming more and more uncomfortable to watch. Jenna’s dad declared Collin a bad influence, but she had her mother on her side — at least until she betrayed her trust to sneak out and hook up with Collin. And they did hook up.

Afraid that she would lose him if she didn’t — and he did quickly start looking at his phone when she rebuffed his advances — Jenna ultimately decided to have sex with Collin. She didn’t do it out of love or because she really wanted to. She did it for an absolutely terrible reason. Clearly Collin is representing the “bad decisions” phase of her life, but how long will it last? Like everyone else in her life, we miss the old Jenna.

“Awkward” airs Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. EST on MTV.
