Fortnite’s v10.40 patch is officially live, and included in the patch are a number of map changes to the island, including a brand new point-of-interest and updates to existing locations.

For Fortnite fans, map changes are a major part of any new update for the battle royale title, as having new locations to land at can keep the game fresh, and perhaps give you an advantage over other players as you attempt to secure a Victory Royale.

While rumors continue to circulate that the developers will introduce a brand-new map when Season 11 kicks off in early October, Epic have continued to make changes to the current iteration of the island in the v10.40 patch, introducing a new location named Starry Suburbs, and making a number of changes to existing POIs.

You can view all the Fortnite v10.40 Update map changes below.

The headline addition to the game’s map in this update is a brand new location named Starry Suburbs, which has popped up in the north-western corner of the island.

Throughout Season 10, classic locations have been popping up across the island, bringing back some fan-favorite locations, and with this patch, the abandoned houses that sat directly north of Pleasant Park are back, with a fresh coat of paint and an interesting quirk.

    The Block

    Epic GamesFortnite’s Block saw another major change.

    As always, The Block has been updated, with a creation by Sunday appearing at the location.

    More changes will be found throughout the day as more players hop back into the Battle Bus, so keep checking back as we’ll be updating this article with any new additions we find in Fortnite‘s latest update.


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.
