Fortnite players discover another way to phase through enemy walls

Building is an extremely important mechanic in Fortnite, but sneaky players have found another way to turn the tool to their advantage, finding a new way to phase through walls thanks to a glitch in the game.

While eliminating enemies with your weapon is the primary objective in Fortnite, building is equally important, allowing players to protect themselves from bullets raining down on them from opponents, create bases and shelters, or block opponents from charging at you in close quarters situation.


Unfortunately, glitches often mean that these structures don’t keep out players as they were intended to, and Fortnite players have found yet another way to magically walk through walls placed by opponents, giving them the element of surprise as they attempt to secure Victory Royales.

Walls are meant to protect you, but Fortnite players have found a way to glitch through them.

Uploaded to Reddit on January 3, user Trotz_DespiTe revealed that they had found another way to run through the solid object, using it to take down an enemy who was unsurprisingly stunned to see an enemy saunter through a wall to take him out with an Assault Rifle.


The player found himself in a box fight with an enemy who had the higher ground, and decided to place a metal roof to give himself cover while he planned his next move. They quickly edited it the metal structure above them to allow themselves to walk up the stairs, before destroying the wall of the enemy using their pickaxe, all while crouched under their edited roof.

All of a sudden, the player’s gun is poking through the wall, which is still standing and fires off a couple of shots that wipe out the opponent and send them back to the lobby, leaving Trotz_DespiTe to just casually enter the opponent’s hideout and gather all the loot they need.

This isn’t the first time that players have found ways to glitch themselves through walls, and many will be imploring Epic Games to fix it as soon as possible so they don’t get eliminated by an opponent who can teleport through solid objects.


The developers have yet to officially address the issues, but it’s possible that the 11.50 update for the game which will introduce the new Unreal Engine Chaos physics engine will fix this exploit, although who knows what problems this major change may bring.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
