One of the most exciting aspects of Fortnite’s High Stakes event, which will begin this week, is the all-new cosmetic set that comes with it.

First and foremost in that set is the Wild Card outfit which, as was initially predicted in a number of leaks, will be customizable.

With a total of four masks/headstyles available, players will be able to choose between a heart, a club, a diamond, or a spade (continuing the playing card theme). The Wild Card outfit will be purchasable in the item shop.

As for harvesting tools, the High Stakes pickaxe will be a crowbar that is unlocked after completing all three of the special High Stakes challenges.

There is an in-game spray and a new “Money” Trail, both of which can be earned by completing a specific High Stakes challenge. The Money Trail is yours for picking up a jewel in 5 different matches of the getaway LTM, and the spray can be earned by dealing 500 damage to jewel carrying opponents

Finally, there will be piece of back bling and a glider to complete the High Stakes set.

The back bling will be called Cuff Case and features a briefcase with handcuffs attached. The glider will be called Safe Crack and quite literally looks like the door to a giant safe… with wings attached:

The Cuff Case and Safe Crack are both expected to be available for purchase in the item shop, meaning that the harvesting tool, spray and Money Trail will be the only items that can be unlocked for free.

Rarities and prices of all items, as well as the official names for the pickaxe and in-game spray, will be added when the information becomes available.

The High Stakes challenges are expected to go live at the same time as the all-new Grappler item and Getaway LTM in the V5.40 patch (which is expected to be released on Thursday, September 6).


SypherPK reveals tips on how to master Fortnite Zero Point Crystals

Fortnite Season 5 now has a new teleporting feature thanks to the new Zero Point Crystals, and SypherPK has shared some must-know tips to help you master it.

As one of the most popular Fortnite content creators, many players look to SypherPK to offer advice and tips on how to master Epic’s online multiplayer battle royale – and he’s delivered once again with advice on making the most of the new teleport ability.

One of the biggest map changes in the game’s Season 5 update was the introduction of a new crystalline sands area right in the middle of the action. As well as letting players sink and hide, the area brings a new item called Zero Point Crystals.

During his December 3 video, SypherPK argued that “everyone is sleeping on the Zero Point Crystals” and offered up several reasons why they can actually be one of the most useful items to collect in Fortnite Season 5.

He explained that if you destroy crystals near the Zero Point and consume the small parts that scatter, you can perform a crystal-dash that lets you effectively teleport a short distance in any direction – even upwards if you need to get some height.

The crystal-dash is performed by double jumping and facing the direction you want to travel. Once you’ve consumed a crystal, you’ll have the ability for 30 seconds. It might seem like a small thing, but it could be a game-changer for getting out of tricky situations.

“If you really master the movement of the crystals, you can be very difficult to pin down and you don’t even have to build,” SypherPK explains in his video. “You can just be constantly flying around your opponent.”

While you can’t use the crystal-dash to move through solid surfaces or buildings, SypherPK discovered an exploit that lets you teleport through even a tiny gap in another player’s builds and dive into their box. It’s tricky to pull off, but rewarding when it works.

“You just fly into their builds, and once you get the timing right, it’s actually not that hard to repeat over and over,” he said. “You just gotta get the timing right.”
