Fortnite has released a statement following reports that a number of users have experienced problems accessing the Playground LTM on July 3rd.

After an unsuccessful launch in late June that saw the popular mode disabled after just over three hours, fans across the globe celebrated when it was eventually enabled on July 2nd.

The special LTM is unlike anything we’ve seen in the Fortnite universe before, allowing four players to join a lobby with unlimited respawns, friendly fire and a large amount of loot.

Players have been getting creative with the map like never before by creating everything from epic Shopping Cart routes with jump pads, through to practicing their building and shooting skills.

Unfortunately however it hasn’t been plane sailing for everyone, and Epic Games confirmed on July 3rd that they were once again having problems.

A number of users reported that it had been disabled and posted screenshots of being unable to access the game.

Fear not, as the Epic Games team has confirmed were looking into the issue and resolved it in lightning fast time.


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.
