The current ‘season’ of Fortnite Battle Royale is set to end later than planned, according to dates found in the game files and leaked online.

Fortnite is currently in its fifth season, with each having a unique theme and new sets of items, weapons and map POI’s, keeping the game fresh for the massive player base.

Each season so far has lasted 10 weeks, with the fifth season currently about to head in to week 7.

It was expected that season 6 therefore would begin on Tuesday, September 25, with a new theme, possibly Halloween related, giving the game a makeover moving into the winter months.

But, according to a post by known leakers ‘FNBRLeaks’, the sixth season appears to have been pushed back by developer Epic Games.

The post shows the start of Season 5 (July 11, 2018), the ‘Season Displayed End’ date of September 25, 2018, but surprisingly also shows a ‘Season End’ date of October 2.

This is of course unconfirmed, and given Epic Games like to keep fans on their toes and always guessing, this could change in the coming weeks.

However, given the amount of radical changes and overhauls that came with the end of season 4 moving into 5, it wouldn’t be surprising if Epic pushed back the end of season 5 to give them more time to work on the upcoming season.

There is almost nothing known about what to expect in season 6, but odd map changes have been spotted, related mostly to the ‘rifts’ dotted around the battle royale island, which could lead to clues.

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.
