One Fortnite fan has found a way to get around the Taco Time dancing that occurs at the Greasy Grove rift zone – and it can hand players a huge advantage.
After months of waiting, many Fortnite fans finally got what they wanted as Greasy Grove returned in the V10.30 update as a brand-new Rift Zone. However, with the popular location becoming a Rift Zone, there is a huge twist compared to what it once was.
The Burger shop has long gone, replacing it with a Taco shop. That shop has given players Taco Time – where, every 40 seconds or so, everyone in Greasy Grove will break out into a dance and become unable to build or shoot their weapons. However, there is a way to get around it.
In a post to the FortniteBR subreddit, user ThatOneWooper pointed out that players can get around the Taco Time dancing by utilizing a launch pad and building themselves into a one-by-one box.
Of course, it’ll take some luck to find a launch pad, but if someone does, they can jump on the placed item just before Taco Time begins and once they hit the roof of the box, it will cancel the normal dancing period.
The Redditor expanded on their find by explaining that while you can’t run and gun as everyone else is stuck in Taco Time dancing, you can absolutely build and create deadly traps.
“I’ve heard from someone that you cannot shoot other players while they are dancing, however, during this mode you can build and they cannot,” they said. “So, all you have to do is build a box around them and place a trap or something. They can’t build or break to get out.”
Epic Games likely didn’t plan for this workaround the Taco Time to be in the game, but as they haven’t yet addressed the issue, it remains to be seen if they are aware of it.
It probably won’t take too long for them to implement a fix, though, so anyone exploiting this launch pad method won’t get to enjoy it for much longer.
