Insane Fortnite glitch is making Ballers even more overpowered

The Baller in Fortnite can be used as an all-terrain vehicle that even survives the storm if this is indeed working as intended. 

The big news at the end of Fortnite Season 7 was that planes were being vaulted. Many of the top streamers and pro players were very happy with this move.

This was of course before they knew the Baller would be rolling its way into the game with Season 8.

On paper, the Baller seems like a harmless vehicle but it has proven to be meta-changing and players rely on it to get around and essentially annoy other players. 

Changes are coming to the Baller going into the Fortnite World Cup but their presence has already been felt in the game, both competitively and non-competitively.

The Baller can tank the Storm

Not only are the Ballers very annoying to go against, but it also turns out they can just roll around in the storm unharmed.

A clip posted to Reddit shows the ball sitting in a structure just tanking storm surge damage like it’s no big deal. This is very worrying if it is actually working as intended and not a bug.

A reply to the video also mentions the ball could just be sitting in a 1×1 structure with a stink bomb going off without damaging the player at all. Realistically, this makes sense since the player is inside the ball.

Gameplay-wise, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense for the Baller to be invulnerable to the elements, however.

Epic GamesThe Fortnite World Cup is approaching fast.

Vehicles are being nerfed with Fortnite v8.30 

Changes are coming to the Baller in the upcoming v8.30 patch which will nerf the Baller, and other vehicles, as we know.

It’s important to get this out of the way as soon as possible with the World Cup quickly approaching.

What’s more troubling is the fact Epic Games still held a $500K tournament with the Baller in the state it’s currently in, meaning some players could have gotten an unfair advantage using this newly discovered bug.


Fortnite Crew explained: Battle Pass skin packs, V-Bucks, price & more

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
