Fortnite pro Zayt claims World Cup setups gave some players a major advantage

NRG Fortnite pro William ‘Zayt’ Aubin claims that fellows pros Cody ‘Clix’ Conrod and Griffin ‘Sceptic’ Spikoski were able to look up at the main screen during the Duos World Cup event and get an advantage.

During July 27’s Duos event, the top 50 Fortnite duos from around the world competed to find out who the best twosome is on the planet.

However, some of the players had some unfair advantages that helped them get an edge over some players according to one pro at least.

Zayt said that Clix and Sceptic’s positioning during the event gave them the ability to look up at the main screen and see whatever the broadcast at home was able to see.

“Hopefully they changed the tv and sceptic/clix can’t look up at where people are today for solos,” he tweeted.

Sceptic and Clix weren’t able to secure a top spot so their positioning didn’t seem to help too much, or they didn’t really pay attention to it since they also had their own screens to focus on.

However, Sceptic was able to give us one of the most memorable moments of the event when he did a “Take the L” in real life after an elimination.

Sceptic was not able to qualify for the Solos event but Clix still represented Misfits Gaming, while Zayt was able to compete on both days as well.

Zayt might have actually had a valid complaint here but it didn’t end up having too much of an effect on anything in the grand scheme of things.

Epic Games haven’t commented on this in any way so it’s not likely any punishment will be handed out to either player, especially considering it would be very hard to prove they did it with malicious intent.

Where to find Fortnite Iron Man jetpacks

After many long months, the fan-favorite jetpack has finally been re-added to Fortnite. This time however it’s straight from Iron Man, due to the special Marvel-themed season. Here’s a simple guide for how you can get your hands on the item.

One of the more interesting and least-hated items added to Fortnite since its launch is the jetpack. After being available in normal modes for a while, the item quickly became a fan-favorite, and getting one was pretty much required if you wanted to stand a chance in the final couple circles.

Epic Games decided to remove the item back in 2018 and instead, limited it to a number of different LTMs. Now, it seems like the developer has at least temporarily reversed course, as the item is now spawning in the base game again with a Marvel-themed twist.

The new jetpack operates exactly the same as the old item that was removed from Fortnite a while ago.

What is the Iron Man jetpack?

From everything we’ve seen, it appears as if the Iron Man jetpack operates basically the same way the older jetpack did back in 2018, and that this new item is basically just a simple cosmetic re-skin.

The jetpack takes the slot of one of your items on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. If you want to use it though, you don’t have to have the item selected. All you need to do is jump and then hold down the jump button in order to raise yourself into the air, allowing you to use your weapons. Operation, as expected, is fairly simple.

The Iron Man jetpack can be found through the map as floor loot.

Where can I find the Iron Man jetpack?

Apparently, the only place to find the Iron Man jetpack is as floor loot appearing randomly around the map for the moment. There doesn’t appear to be any specific, sure-fire, place to find it, so you’ll just have to keep looking until it pops up.

The item also doesn’t seem to show up from chests, which means it’s even harder to find than some weapons and other items. Of course, this could all change as time goes on.

It’s currently unknown how long the item will be in the game for, although logic would dictate that the longest it would be available would be the end of the current season given its Marvel theme.
