TSM’s HighDistortion experienced one of the strangest Fortnite Battle Royale glitches we’ve seen during a recent Fortnite tournament and we’re still not 100% sure what actually happened.

Fortnite Battle Royale’s meteoric rise in popularity during the late stages of 2017 and early months of 2018 was nothing short of incredible, and the Epic Games title looks like it’s here to stay for the long haul.

The game’s high octane matches mixed with the innovative building mechanics, ever changing meta, and regular updates have made it a winner for any type of gamer, and that fact that it is available on just about every conceivable platform drives home that fact.

However, it still isn’t perfect. While the developers do a remarkable job of keeping the game fresh, interesting, and performing well, glitches and bug still do inevitably slip through the cracks.

On June 24th, TSM’s HighDistortion shared a clip from NerdOut’s first Little and Large tournament which is so strange that we aren’t really sure how to describe it other than to say he warped through space and time to another area of the map.

The Twitch star drops into an area of Tilted Towers and attempts to open a chest but seems to be lagging. A moment later he warps to a totally different area of Tilted Towers, outside of the building, but totally unharmed…

Widely regarded as one of the very best players on the planet, HighDistortion has his fair share of hours logged on Fortnite. It is a testament to how strange this glitch is that the experienced player is so confused by what is happening, and we’re yet to see it be replicated so it could well be a one off internet issue.

Unfortunately, the lagg/glitch caused some drama in the tournament as HighDistortion fans were unhappy with his opponents, Marksman and Wildcat, for not restarting the match.

Either way, we can guarantee that the TSM man would find it even more infuriating if it happened during a big money match or major tournament.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
