The format and prize pool breakdown for the $3 million Fortnite: Battle Royale Pro-AM Tournament have been revealed.

Taking place at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, the Fortnite: Battle Royale Pro-Am Tournament will feature 50 streamers and content creators pairing up with 50 celebrities from different backgrounds.

Although a prize pool of $3 million will be offered by Epic Games for the tournament, all of the proceeds will go towards different charities chosen by the winning teams following the event.

Even though a massive amount of hype was generated for the Pro-AM, not much was known about the actual format prior to the tournament until right before.

With just minutes to go before the competition kicked off, it was announced that a total of three matches will be played on-stage for viewers to enjoy. 

The first match will pit all of the players against one another in a Solo’s game, with the second being the first look at teams playing together for a chance to warm-up. The final match will be the one that counts towards the placings for the $3 million prize pool.

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.
