Fortnite Battle Royale’s servers have gone offline temporarily as the development team applies the highly anticipated V4.1 update featuring Marvel’s Thanos.

Epic Games, the developers behind Fortnite, have done an almost perfect job of keeping their game fresh and exciting since it originally began to blow up in late 2017.

They have done this through a variety of updates and patches that constantly bring new items, weapons, emotes, cosmetics, map changes, and even limited time modes for players to enjoy.

Every patch is greeted with excitement but the V4.1 update promises to be just that little bit more interesting as it will mark the beginning of Fortnite’s crossover with Marvel’s Infinity War.

The exact details of how the deal will work are currently uncertain but we do know that an “Infinity Gauntlet” will be dropped in every game and the person that finds it will turn into Thanos, the main villain in the Infinity War film.

Of course, the V4.1 patch is also likely to add a number of other interesting new features or cosmetics and it doesn’t look like we’ll have to wait for much longer as the developers have now announced that downtime for the update has begun.

One thing that the Fortnite Battle Royale developers are particularly good at doing is keeping their fanbase on their toes, so expect a number of surprises to be included in the patch notes when they are eventually released.

If you can’t wait to jump into a game and try to find the Infinity Gauntlet, keep an eye on the Fortnite and Dexerto Twitter accounts for updates.

SypherPK has already found quite a few tips, tricks, and glitches in Fortnite Season 5, but none are as hilarious as this one at Coral Castle that lets players ‘float’ in the air.

Fortnite Season 5 is well-polished, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t tricks and glitches that players can exploit. Game-breaking ones like being able to stay in the storm forever inevitably get patched.

However, smaller ones are more difficult to iron out, and nobody finds them better than Ali ‘SypherPk’ Hassan. He’s shared many crazy tips and tricks in the past. Now, he’s at it again with a glitch that lets players ‘float.’ He showed it off in a recent video, and the results are hilarious.

If you want to know how to do it, here’s a quick guide.

How to perform the ‘float’ glitch in Fortnite Season 5

To begin, you’ll need to make your way to Coral Castle. It’s not a popular landing spot by any means. SypherPK has only landed there about five times in total himself due to the lack of loot. However, the float glitch makes it more compelling.

Take note of what looks like a small pink pebble floating in the air. It’s difficult to spot at first, but once you’ve seen it in the video below, you’ll know what it is. Strangely, you can stand on it, even though it’s tiny.

Build your way up and perch yourself on top of the pebble. Then, knock all the platforms down and stay up there, which creates the illusion of floating. It’s no cheap gimmick, though. It’s an excellent spot to rain down some bullets on unsuspecting foes, even if it leaves you a bit vulnerable.

SypherPK managed to snag a bunch of eliminations while standing up there. He even managed to get a couple of early shots in and then swoop down on opponents while they were recovering.

SypherPK’s ‘float’ glitch probably won’t win you a game. However, it looks like a lot of fun and will likely help you secure some easy eliminations.

In the end, being innovative is a part of the game, and this glitch takes full advantage of that. 

Plus, imagine the look on your opponent’s face when they realize where they got shot from.
