Easy edit trick let’s you expertly shoot through your own builds in Fortnite

Positioning during gunfights is one of the most important tactics in Fortnite Battle Royale, and there is a new trick that allows players to shoot through their own builds. 

Players will often crouch behind their builds for cover during gunfights, and then peek over the ledge to shoot back.

However, Reddit user ‘MetaphysicalBoi‘ has come with a method that allows players to shoot through the build and not have to compromise their cover in order to fire back at an opponent.

The trick is relatively simple; the first step is to build a standard ramp, floor, wall combination in the direction that a player wants to cover themselves from. 

The next step is to edit the ramp to form an angled staircase, which can be done by editing the ramp at a 90-degree angle either going to the left or right of the player, as shown below.

The final step is to edit a door into the wall portion of the structure. It’s important that the door is editing in the panel of the wall that connects to the lower part of the staircase. 

Once all that is done, the door can be opened to reveal a cheeky line of sight through the entire structure once the player gets back down the staircase onto level ground.

This then allows players to shoot through the doorway without having to worry about exposing themselves to return fire, especially if more walls are built around the structure to protect the player’s right, left, and behind. 

While this trick is probably most ideal for sniping, it can be used with pretty much any longer ranged weapon, especially since there is virtually no chance that anyone can shoot back effectively. 


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
