The fifth and penultimate week of the Fortnite Fall Skirmish competition series continues with the mid-week Trials, which features a challenge called Trap Ball.

Trap Ball is a tournament style challenge which features players from all five Clubs sorted into a 256 person single elimination bracket.


Each match of the competition features two players from different Clubs, who will need to party up and queue into the Playground mode of Fortnite.

The premise of the competition is simple – the two players need to find and activate a ‘Spiky Stadium’ item, loot up on plenty of Impulse Grenades, and then try to eliminate each other within the arena.


Players can only use Impulse Grenades and nothing else; shooting, building, using shields, or exiting the arena is not allowed. A player is considered eliminated if they are downed by one of the Stadium’s traps, knocked out of the arena’s boundaries, leave the arena, or break any of the rules.

Although the tournament is not being live-streamed on the official Fortnite Twitch channel, Epic Games have still provided the tournament brackets for both the North American and European regions, which can be found below:




Although the players’ progress can be seen in each region’s bracket, the winners and final placements will not be officially announced until both region has completed their turn of the competition.

About the Fall Skirmish


The Fall Skirmish is a set of Fortnite competitions that are played over a six week period, with a total of $10 million in prizes awarded throughout.

Each week’s competition features two portions – a competitive tournament that is played every Friday, and weekly trials that are held throughout the week.


In both halves of the competition, players are awarded both prizes and points, which go towards their respective Clubs. Members of each Club will also receive a prize after the Fall Skirmish fully concludes, based on how well their Club placed at the end of the series.

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.
