A new Fortnite Battle Royale glitch has been discovered that allows players to make their character models appear really small or extremely big.

Fortnite players can freely change between skins and other in-game cosmetics to change the way their characters look in-game. It’s a way of adding a bit of your personality and flair to the game, instead of just looking like another boring generic character.

However, what if there was the option to make your character even more unique?

Maybe even change up how big they appear in-game? A new glitch in Fortnite Chapter 2 has allowed players to break the game and made their characters look like giants, or as small as ants.

Youtube content creator ‘penguinzomby’ has shared how easy it is to replicate the glitch by creating his own island people can use to abuse it themselves.

On a video uploaded to his channel on November 19, he walked players through how to activate the oddly-sized character models. 

By going to island 6098-5140-3070 and following the instructions written on the walls of the map, players will be able to change their model size with ease. 

Players will still move at the pace they normally would. That means shrunk characters will launch themselves across the map when they move, while giant models will walk along at a snail’s pace.

Most other map interactions are the same. You can’t really sneak through any little gaps under doors you might look like you are able to slide on through, and super sized character models can still get around most buildings, the camera angle just looks weird.

You can’t use it to gain a competitive advantage, either. While your model changes server-side, meaning everyone can see the updated character at its different size, you can’t take the changes into any matchmaking mode.

However, it’s a fun way to play around with your mates in your own creative islands, hubs, and public playgrounds. 

If you ever wanted to walk around the map from a slightly different perspective, and maybe play a trick or two on your mates, you can freely abuse this glitch without fear of getting punished by Epic.


SypherPK reveals tips on how to master Fortnite Zero Point Crystals

Fortnite Season 5 now has a new teleporting feature thanks to the new Zero Point Crystals, and SypherPK has shared some must-know tips to help you master it.

As one of the most popular Fortnite content creators, many players look to SypherPK to offer advice and tips on how to master Epic’s online multiplayer battle royale – and he’s delivered once again with advice on making the most of the new teleport ability.

One of the biggest map changes in the game’s Season 5 update was the introduction of a new crystalline sands area right in the middle of the action. As well as letting players sink and hide, the area brings a new item called Zero Point Crystals.

During his December 3 video, SypherPK argued that “everyone is sleeping on the Zero Point Crystals” and offered up several reasons why they can actually be one of the most useful items to collect in Fortnite Season 5.

He explained that if you destroy crystals near the Zero Point and consume the small parts that scatter, you can perform a crystal-dash that lets you effectively teleport a short distance in any direction – even upwards if you need to get some height.

The crystal-dash is performed by double jumping and facing the direction you want to travel. Once you’ve consumed a crystal, you’ll have the ability for 30 seconds. It might seem like a small thing, but it could be a game-changer for getting out of tricky situations.

“If you really master the movement of the crystals, you can be very difficult to pin down and you don’t even have to build,” SypherPK explains in his video. “You can just be constantly flying around your opponent.”

While you can’t use the crystal-dash to move through solid surfaces or buildings, SypherPK discovered an exploit that lets you teleport through even a tiny gap in another player’s builds and dive into their box. It’s tricky to pull off, but rewarding when it works.

“You just fly into their builds, and once you get the timing right, it’s actually not that hard to repeat over and over,” he said. “You just gotta get the timing right.”
