Exploit in Fortnite allows players to get past the wall in Food Fight LTM

The most unique feature of the new Food Fight LTM in Fortnite is the large wall which splits the map for the first five minutes, but players have discovered a way to get past it and reach the enemy side.

Like something straight out of the Game of Thrones universe, the large wall splits the map in half and gives each team five minutes to prepare their defenses before the battle begins.

Once the wall drops, teams are free to battle it out, attempting to destroy the other team’s mascot to win the game.

However, it turns out that the wall may not be as foolproof as intended, as some clever players have discovered you can in fact reach the other side before the five minutes is up.

Although the wall covers the whole map on ground level, by simply building down to water level, you can in fact get below the wall, and then simply build up.

As shown by Reddit user u/Mario4736 shows that once you get up to the other side, you can surprise the enemy team and attack them.

This is almost certainly not intentional, and Epic Games will no doubt look to fix this once they realize it is possible.

For now though, you may as well try to make the most of this exploit for a few cheap kills – although make sure you have enough materials build your way across, you don’t want to get stuck halfway!

In the Food Fight LTM however there is increased material harvesting, meant to allow for better defenses, so you should have no problem getting enough.

Has LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
