Popular Fortnite players Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore and Brett ‘Dakotaz’ Hoffman showcased just how crazy the game’s newest Zipline glitch is by catching on them from standing on the ground, and also while dropping into a match.

Ever since they were introduced back in Fortnite Season 7, ziplines have had a variety of issues. There have been glitches that have seen players die instantly and others that have caused the ziplines not to work as they are supposed to.

However, it appears as if the craziest bug with the movement system has been uncovered in Fortnite Chapter 2 as Cloak and Dakotaz managed to catch a ride on the ziplines – without being anywhere close to the normal range of initiating them.

Zip lines have had many issues since being added to Fortnite.

During their January 18 stream, the popular pair linked up for a few matches and immediately put the newfound exploit to the test while dropping into a game. 

While dropping and having his glider open in the sky, Cloak lined up his crosshair with the zipline and immediately clicked his action button. To his surprise, the Fortnite professional was immediately able to use the zipline – making his drop much quicker in the process.

“Oh my God, you can – you can teleport down,” the former FaZe Clan member called out. Look straight down on the zipline and press E. Oh my God, what the…”

However, the pair weren’t finished there. After Dakotaz managed to get the ‘high in the sky’ part of the exploit to work, Cloak tried to do it from the ground – repeating his method of aiming right in line with the zipline and hitting his action key.

Of course, it worked perfectly and prompted Dakotaz to try it for himself. “What the!” the streamer called out as he was sucked up onto the zipline. “Oh my God bro, that’s cheating!”

Some Fortnite players may have already stumbled upon this exploit but with popular players like Cloak and Dakotaz showcasing that it still works on their own streams, more and more fans will become aware of it.

It remains to be seen as to whether or not Epic Games will make some sort of change in the future but they will need to do something to avoid it being a problem in competitive play.

Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
