The creator of The Game Awards hinted at an upcoming Fortnite special event that will tie into the annual ceremony.

Fortnite is no stranger to hosting in-game events, having done two events in the past few months that have been incredibly well-received by the community.

It looks like there could be yet another special event debuting at The Game Awards on December 6, if these hints are anything to believe. 

TGA Producer and Creator Geoff Keighley dropped a big hint on such an event in a Tweet posted on December 5 ahead of the event.

Keighley says that Fortnite Creative is only part of the story that Fortnite will be telling this week, suggesting that “things are about to get even crazier” due to the surprise they have in store for fans.

Keighley’s tweet ended in the most enigmatic way by saying to “make sure to keep your game close by.”

The cryptic message was briefly confirmed by Fortnite’s Creative Director Donald Muster replying to the tweet with “what he said.”

For the viewers who are going to tune in to TGA at home, the task would be relatively simple. But for the ceremony-goers, it could be a hint for the mobile iterations of Fortnite.

Fortnite’s anticipated Season 7 releases on December 6 worldwide and looks to be bringing not only snow but a bevy of new items, including an Games Awards and the reveal to the mystery will be on December 6 and the show starts at 5:30 PST / 8:30 EST.

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.
