Fortnite exploit will stop you from taking damage from exploding Dynamite

Dynamite was recently added to Fortnite Battle Royale during the V6.30 Update, and its introduction to the game hasn’t gone very well.

The explosive item has encountered a whole host of issues since it was released, and a Fortnite player has found a new trick with Dynamite which is unlikely to be intended by the developers of the game.

A clever Fortnite fan has discovered a way to hold on to sticks of lit Dynamite until they explode without taking any damage from the blast.

The Dynamite explosive item was added in the V6.30 update for Fortnite.

When players hold onto the explosive for too long instead of throwing it, the Dynamite will deal around 70 points of damage to the player as punishment for not releasing the item.

However, Reddit user TheMightyWitcher has discovered that when a player holds a lit stick of dynamite and then stares directly into the air, the stick of dynamite will explode, but deal no damage to the holder.

This could be an easy way to break into an enemy base, especially if they are turtling and have built themselves into a 1×1 box,as players just need to stand beside it and look into the sky, allowing the explosive to destroy the wall and simply allow them to walk in.

Epic Games added Dynamite to Fortnite on Tuesday, November 20, but within an hour of it’s official release had to disable the item as it was causing “an increase in client crashes.”

Fortnite pro play and Team Liquid star Ryan ‘Chap’ Chaplo has already spoken out against the explosive new item, stating that Dynamite meant the end of building in the game. 

The item was added back to the game later on the same day, alongside Fortnite’s brand new limited time Wild West mode, featuring limited weaponry to give the game that old-time feel.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

The map used in the Box Fight Tournament was created by two winners of the Princess Castle Creative Contest.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
