Fortnite player comes up with inventive way to change how dynamite works

Ever since the release of Dynamite in the v6.30 update, Fortnite fans have been brainstorming ways to change the item and one fan has discovered a very different change to the item.

Dynamite is one of the latest additions to Fornite, and it’s already making players and streamers upset, so many fans have been calling for the item to be outrighted vaulted or at least toned down.

One fan took to Reddit on November 21 to come up with a completely different idea that could greatly change how the item is used. 

User codyburb posted the idea to the Fortnite subreddit, suggesting that players should be able to shoot and detonate dynamite while it’s in the air or still being primed by an enemy player, the dynamite would explode, and damage whatever or whoever it’s close to.

What if while someone was priming their dynamite or while in mid air. You could shoot it and have it blow up in their hands, killing them and destroying structures around them and their team from r/FortNiteBR

The suggestion is almost exactly how the Dynamite ability of the new Overwatch hero, Ashe, works, she can shoot the bomb while it’s still in the air to detonate, and it damages all enemies in an area.

Other users in the comments on Reddit seemed to think the changes would be an improvement to the controversial new item.

It’s not clear whether or not Epic has changes coming soon for Dynamite, but they’ve already had to take the new item offline briefly.

Epic has certainly used fan suggestions in Fortnite before – like when they included an 8-year-old’s design in the game – so to see some sort of similar change to Dynamite make it into the game wouldn’t be too crazy to imagine.

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.
