Fortnite’s 14 Days of Summer special event is rolling on, and the Friday, July 5 challenge tasks players with visiting a giant beach umbrella and a huge rubber duck in a single match.

The 14 Days of Summer event may be drawing to a close, but players still have a few daily challenges left to complete if they want some sweet rewards courtesy of Epic Games.

This challenge will see players travelling around the island, as players must visit a giant beach umbrella and a huge rubber duck in a single match, but if you’re struggling to find them, or are looking for the quickest way to complete the challenge, our handy guide should help you out.

Epic GamesPlayers will need to visit a giant beach umbrella and a huge rubber duck.

Unlike other 14 Days of Summer challenges, this one must be completed in the same match, so if you manage to find a rubber duck but get eliminated before you make it to a giant umbrella, you’ll have to start the challenge again in your next match.

What makes this challenge even more difficult is the fact that the rubber duck moves in every match, as it sits on the river that cuts through the map near Neo Tilted and down towards Fatal Fields.

Thankfully though, the beach umbrellas don’t move, so if you’re looking for the locations for one of those, you can use our handy map which marks each one out for you.

Remember, the duck will continuously move from game to game, so don’t expect it to be in the last place you saw it when you get back into a match.

This is the 11th of 14 challenges that Epic have released this summer season, and if you missed any of the previous tasks laid out by the developers, you can use our 14 Days of Summer challenge hub to get caught up.

To tie in with the theme of this challenge, players who complete it will earn a special rubber duck back bling which they can proudly wear as they search for victory royales.

Fortnite invisibility glitch lets players cause absolute chaos

Fortnite players have got a new way to go invisible and troll their opponents, and it involves using the Mudflap truck. 

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded, and Epic Games has added plenty of new content to the battle royale, players have found more and more ways to get an advantage over their opponents – be it legitimately or by using glitches and exploits.

In the past, these glitches have ranged from being able to use whatever skin you want, getting under the map, and being able to carry more items than normally allowed. 

There have also been God Mode and invisibility exploits too. While Epic has been pretty good at rooting those out, even disabling the items that help players use these glitches, there’s a new one they’ll have to get rid of.

The Mudflap truck is central to the new glitch.

The new invisibility glitch was pointed out by YouTuber GlitchKing who showed that it works similar to the invisibility glitch with the boat in seasons past. 

Players have to be knocked at the same time they’re entering a Mudflap truck, and then by doing so, are thrown underneath the truck while knocked. If they’re then picked up a teammate, they are invisible to everyone else in the lobby. 

Sometimes it doesn’t work as intended, obviously, as GlitchKing showed that his friend had attempted it a few times – once being throw under the map and another being eliminated altogether.

Obviously, when players are invisible, it’s impossible to get a read on their position. As GlitchKing demonstrated, he was able to cause havoc by damaging enemies who were clueless as to where he was. Though, he did give the game away by picking up knocked enemies.

Given that the glitch revolves around the Mudflap, Epic might have to disable the vehicle while they get things figured out, but as of writing, the problem hasn’t made its way to their Trello board so it remains to be seen as to whether or not they’re aware of it.
