Epic Games have rolled out yet another update to the infamous Mounted Turret item in Fortnite. 

According to a tweet put out on November 16, the availability of the Mounted Turret has been reduced, meaning that players will come across the item at a less frequent rate than before.

This nerf has been applied to the default modes, which are Solo, Duos, and Squads, which leaves the item unaffected in the Playground and other Limited Time Modes.

According to the tweet, this change was made as a result of player feedback, as Epic continue to demonstrate the value that they place on what the community has to say.

It’s clear that Epic are in full damage control mode now when it comes to the Mounted Turret, despite that fact that it’s only been in the game since November 14, 

This is the second major change that the developers have made to the new item in as many days; a massive hotfix was rolled out for it on November 15 that significantly nerfed the health of its floor and overall structure.

Despite only being in the game for two days, the Mounted Turret has already received two major nerfs.

The item continues to receive mainly negative feedback from many within the player-base, with videos of its flaws popping up all over the internet.

The introduction of the Turret, coupled with the removal of the Glider Re-Deploy feature, has even led to some calling the recent v6.30 update in Fortnite the worst in recent months. 

While the future of the item is not yet clear, its fate could already be sealed and players may even see it vaulted from default modes as early as next week’s 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.
