FaZe Clan professional Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has discovered a way to improve the current fast-farming method in Fortnite.
The four-time Friday Fortnite champion is known for his innovative approach to the game, often looking for new and efficient ways to get things done.
The fast-farming method involves quickly activating and cancelling an emote while swinging a pickaxe to mine resources.
The action increases the pace at which the pickaxe can be used, often allowing players to swing twice as fast.

While this new method also involves the use of an emote, there is a key difference in the keybindings. The result keeps the efficiency of the fast-farming while reducing other issues with button delays and reloading.
“There is a new way that I fast-farm, and I wanted to share with you guys. Go to your keybinds. Do ‘locker emote one,’ so whatever emote you fast-farm with, put in on ‘mouse wheel down,’ go to ‘alternative crouch keybind’ and put in ‘mouse wheel up.’ So once you hit, scroll your mouse wheel down and then up. […] So this is way easier, and that way you don’t have to worry about emoting and reload bugs and stuff like that.”

While the fast-farming method does increase resource mining efficiency, many view it as an in-game glitch that is being exploited.
Although Epic Games have not explicitly stated that the use of the glitch is a bannable offense, they have made it clear that doing it is frowned upon and could ultimately lead to consequences.
