Players are discovering more and more uses for the new Sneaky Snowman item in Fortnite Battle Royale, and Team SoloMid’s ‘Myth’ has found what could be the best one so far. 

During a match he played live on stream, Myth found himself in a situation where an X-4 Stormwing plane was flying straight at him with only one thing on the pilot’s mind.

Using good timing, the pro player built up to be more level with the plane and threw a Sneaky Snowman at it just as the plane flew by him.

The Snowman cocooned the pilot and knocked him off of the plane and onto the ground, where he stood still and was the perfect sitting duck for Myth to quickly wipe out.

The strategy appeared to have worked better than he had expected as he cheered in excitement and tweeted the video out with the caption “Sneaky Snowman = counter to planes.”

The clever usage of the Sneaky Snowman caught the eye of Epic Games Community Coordinator Sean ‘MrPopoTFS’ Hamilton, who commented his approval of it on Twitter.

It appears that this trick is not the result of some bug or glitch but rather could possibly even be a hidden use for the Snowman that Epic did not explicitly state.

While many were initially put off by the prospect of another disguise item being added to the game, the Sneaky Snowman has been proven to be a whole lot more useful than the Bush. 

This is the second hidden use for the Sneaky Snowman that players have discovered in the short while it’s been in the game. On day of its release, a video was posted on Reddit that showed how the new item could be used to prevent fall damage from any heights.

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.
