FaZe Clan’s Nate Hill may have walked away with $120,000 for his 4th place finish at the PAX West Summer Skirmish – but it could have been more had he not experienced this glitch at a crucial moment.

The newest member of FaZe Clan’s Fortnite roster, Nate Hill didn’t disappoint in his first outing under the the FaZe banner.

With so much top talent competing in the final week of the Summer Skirmish series, just making it to the final day of matches was a big achievement in itself.

But Nate went a few better than that, putting in solid performances in all the final day matches, even securing a second place in one.

However, the ending of the match was marred by the common pickaxe bug, which causes the pickaxe to be useless immediately after killing an enemy. 

The body of a recently slain opponent glitches, causing the pickaxe to repeatedly do no damage to structures, instead making the sound as if it were hitting a player.

Nate was visibly angered by the glitch occurring at that crucial moment, but in fairness, he had very little chance of actually winning the match from that position.

If he had shot the build below him sooner, he still likely would have fallen to his death, and his opponent, Lanjok, who had more health would have outlived him in the storm.

Nate’s only option, as caster DrLupo explains, would have been to attempt to get a shot on Lanjok as he fell, but realistically, he was consigned to a second place finish in that game.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.


After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
