Fortnite players discover innovative way to complete motorboat challenge

Fortnite’s latest set of challenges tasks players with some unique tests, yet this ingenious player figured out a way to cheese a motorboat-specific objective and complete it in no time at all.

From taking down the opposition with explosives, to dealing a certain amount of damage to Season 2’s brand new bosses, TNTina’s Week Three Trial challenges require a number of unique play styles to get through.

One of the more vague challenges in the latest list, asks for players to “Catch Air with a Motorboat.” While avid members in the Fortnite community might be able to rack up air-time throughout their lengthy sessions, those looking to complete this part of the list in a matter of moments are in luck thanks to a cheeky trick.

TNTina’s challenges are no match for this innovative player.

The challenge itself doesn’t outline exactly how much hang-time is required to tick the box, but rather than spending countless hours trying to position the motorboat atop a huge waterfall, for instance, this new strategy can speed things up.

If you’ve got a Grappler in hand, this technique from Reddit user ‘Ikcatcher’ could get you soaring through the sky in a creative manner. 

Instead of jumping over ramps or gliding off of steep ledges, standing in the back and firing the Grappler towards a higher surface will hilariously lift the entire vehicle. The cherry on top, is that plummeting back down to Earth will actually count towards your progress in the challenge.

One of the most effective spots to use this trick is Lockie’s Lighthouse as not only does it feature the incredibly tall structure, but it happens to be located right next to a body of water.

After just five succesul grapples up to the top of the lighthouse, the challenge should be complete and you can continue on with the rest of the list.

In order to execute this amusing strategy though, you’ll obviously need to find both the Grappler and a motorboat in the same match which is no easy task. However, it might still be a faster method than trying to take the vehicle off of multiple cliffs throughout a number of games.

You could be cruising to an easy completion if you find both items in a single run.

Certainly one of the more unique challenges throughout the week, Fortnite players have been thinking outside the box in order to quickly tick it off the list.

Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
