After only being added into Fortnite with the January 20 store update, the Rare Jellie skin seems to have taken its name literally as developers at Epic Games have responded to some hilarious glitches. 

Adding in countless cosmetic items week in and week out, it’s no surprise certain skins would eventually come with a few bugs. One of the most recent Fortnite updates introduced the community to Jellie, a whimsical new skin that looks to be made entirely from a gelatinous substance.


While visual design and actual in-game function are two completely separate things, it appears as though this skin is actually made of jelly as a few amusing bugs have forced Epic Games to comment on the new cosmetic.

The Jellie skin has led to all sorts of over the top glitches in Fortnite lately.

“The anemone you don’t want for an enemy,” the in-game store reads when hovering over the Rare Jellie skin. That statement couldn’t be more accurate as bizarre visual glitches could make your enemies impossible to hit.


With three players using the bugged skin, Reddit user ‘Dolotone’ and his squad started to emote in the middle of a match. In just a matter of seconds, one player stumbled upon a ridiculous glitch that saw Jellie’s legs grow a dozen times their regular size.

Taking all sorts of odd shapes and sizes throughout the animation, the player made himself a far more difficult target for anyone to hit.

Amusingly enough, these quirky glitches aren’t exclusive to the battlefield however, as players using the Jellie skin are able to bug their character model in the main menu as well.


One example from froggiejp shows the skins legs expanding in the menu while they spun in a circle. Others in the lobby didn’t seem to mind a gelatinous helicopter phasing through them but eventually, the legs returned to normal size.

Similarly, the ‘Spring-Loaded’ emote also serves as a catalyst for some ridiculous visual bugs. Expanding and contracting all over the screen, the longer this emote goes on the more whacky Jellie’s skin appears. 

“He’s got those dancin’ feet!” Epic Games community coordinator ‘EmptyTux’ responded on Reddit. “Thanks for the vid, we’ll investigate.”


So jelly’s leg physics can get a little crazy… from FortNiteBR

There’s no quite telling just how soon the issues will be patched out of the game though it’s clear that it wasn’t an intentional feature from Epic to make the skin that little bit more unique.

Until the problems are resolved, however, this could be a hilarious way to freak your friends out in the lobby before loading into a match.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.

  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
