Another big deal has been struck between Amazon owned streaming platform Twitch and Fortnite Battle Royale, as another set of skins exclusive to Twitch Prime members has been announced.

Twitch and Fortnite previously did a very successful partnership a couple months back, which saw a massive uptake in Amazon Prime members and viewers of the game on Twitch – a win-win for both.

Fortnite is now comfortably the most viewed game on Twitch, and at any given time averages around 200,000 concurrent viewers and many more at peak times.

Streamers like Tyler “Ninja” Blevins also reaped the benefits, as many saw their sub count shoot up, because Twitch Prime members are also given one free subscription a month to any streamer (usually $4.99).

It is no surprise then that a second set of skins has been announced at will go live on May 9th.

Epic Games and Twitch are BACK to bring you the Fortnite Twitch Prime Pack #2! Starting May 9, Twitch Prime subscribers will be able to grab all new exclusive Fortnite loot for free.

That’s …

Exclusive Battle Royale Trailblazer Outfit

  • On the forefront of victory.

Exclusive Battle Royale True North Back Bling

  • Find your way.

Exclusive Battle Royale Tenderizer Pickaxe

  • Leave a good first impression.

Exclusive Battle Royale Freestylin’ Emote

All of this exclusive loot is free as a benefit for Twitch Prime subscribers.

Check out a first look of the new skin, which Ninja received early access to on May 8th:

It is also important that if you play on console, you ensure you have linked your XBL/PSN account to an Epic Games account. If you haven’t yet, check out our guide.

How to pull off powerful Fortnite She-Hulk and Ironman “super-jump”

Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan has done it again ⁠— the Fortnite star has uncovered yet another powerful interactive involving the new Marvel mythics. This time, he’s combined the She-Hulk and Ironman items to pull off a map-traversing “super-jump.”

It seems like a new mythic item is arriving in Fortnite every week during Season 4. The Marvel-themed season has appropriately themed items to go along with it, bringing each hero’s superpowers into the game.

Thor can toss around his Mjolnir, Iron Man can fly around, and well, She-Hulk can smash. Her mythic was added into the game in the latest update for players to muck around with.

She-Hulk’s mythic has finally been added to the main game.

She-Hulk’s smash allows her to jump incredible distances before smashing into the ground, knocking enemies up, and dealing damage. It’s very effective for closing down distances on opponents.

Her mythic is also very good at getting across the map quickly. SypherPK has managed to break Fortnite once again using his favorite combination of tools: Marvel mythics, and crash pads.

If you use the She-Hulk and Ironman mythics while jumping off a crash pad, you’re able to fly basically all the way across the Fortnite island. Obviously it’s a little bit silly, but if you need to make a cross-map rotation pronto, there’s no faster way.

“Iron man, plus Hulk smash jump ⁠— you get a really big boost there. Doing it in the water makes you go much further, and once you add a crash pad…it’s really cool,” Sypher said.

Segment begins at 4:54

Here’s a quick step-by-step guide:

  1. Deploy a crash pad in water.
  2. Jump in the water, and use the Iron Man Repulsor to jump into the air.
  3. Swap to the She-Hulk mythic, and use that to jump off the crash pad.
  4. Watch as you fly as far as you want across the map.

Obviously, this is probably a glitch. However, that shouldn’t stop you from abusing it whenever you get the chance ⁠— either for a bit of fun, or for a real advantage.

Epic is likely to patch it out of the game shortly, so you don’t have long to test it out for yourself. If you do manage to nab both mythics though, give it a whirl, and you might find yourself super-jumping across the map too.
