4 ways to improve the Fortnite Shopping Cart

A committed fan of Fortnite’s Shopping Cart is campaigning for Epic Games to make improvements to the item.

The user, known on Reddit as ‘NezvTrash’, created a post on the Fortnite Battle Royale subreddit asking his fellow users to “Join the fight, make Shopping Carts right!”

NezvTrash has four major suggestions for Epic Games, and even made a handy graphic to promote his ideas which he hopes the developers will implement for four-wheeled item.

Firstly, they would like Epic Games to increase the top speed of the cart when it goes down ramps, allowing it to fly further and faster than it currently does. To match this, the cart would need more health, meaning it could take the much larger impact when landing after flying down the ramp at break-neck speed.

NezvTrash would also like to see spikes added to the front of the cart, making it much easier to kill opponents with the cart as you could simply impale them on the front.

Finally, carts should be able to carry items, just like a real shopping cart carries your shopping in real life. This would allow players to carry more items than the five they are currently allowed, but would mean they would have to push the cart around anywhere they went.

The Shopping Cart was first added to Fortnite back in May with the release of Patch V4.3. The cart requires someone to push it around, but can also carry another player who sits in the basket portion of the cart.

Unfortunately, these ideas are all just suggestions from an avid Fortnite fan, and Epic Games have not revealed any plans to update the Shopping Cart.


How to pull off powerful Fortnite She-Hulk and Ironman “super-jump”

Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan has done it again ⁠— the Fortnite star has uncovered yet another powerful interactive involving the new Marvel mythics. This time, he’s combined the She-Hulk and Ironman items to pull off a map-traversing “super-jump.”

It seems like a new mythic item is arriving in Fortnite every week during Season 4. The Marvel-themed season has appropriately themed items to go along with it, bringing each hero’s superpowers into the game.

Thor can toss around his Mjolnir, Iron Man can fly around, and well, She-Hulk can smash. Her mythic was added into the game in the latest update for players to muck around with.

She-Hulk’s mythic has finally been added to the main game.

She-Hulk’s smash allows her to jump incredible distances before smashing into the ground, knocking enemies up, and dealing damage. It’s very effective for closing down distances on opponents.

Her mythic is also very good at getting across the map quickly. SypherPK has managed to break Fortnite once again using his favorite combination of tools: Marvel mythics, and crash pads.

If you use the She-Hulk and Ironman mythics while jumping off a crash pad, you’re able to fly basically all the way across the Fortnite island. Obviously it’s a little bit silly, but if you need to make a cross-map rotation pronto, there’s no faster way.

“Iron man, plus Hulk smash jump ⁠— you get a really big boost there. Doing it in the water makes you go much further, and once you add a crash pad…it’s really cool,” Sypher said.

Here’s a quick step-by-step guide:

  1. Deploy a crash pad in water.
  2. Jump in the water, and use the Iron Man Repulsor to jump into the air.
  3. Swap to the She-Hulk mythic, and use that to jump off the crash pad.
  4. Watch as you fly as far as you want across the map.

Obviously, this is probably a glitch. However, that shouldn’t stop you from abusing it whenever you get the chance ⁠— either for a bit of fun, or for a real advantage.

Epic is likely to patch it out of the game shortly, so you don’t have long to test it out for yourself. If you do manage to nab both mythics though, give it a whirl, and you might find yourself super-jumping across the map too.
