the in-game Ice Sphere live event on January 19.

Just what the event would bring to the game was the cause of mass speculation among Fortnite fans and players, but it was eventually revealed that the Ice King, a character teased at the beginning of Season 7, was hiding inside the ball.

FaZe Clan player Cizzorz tweeted: “I’m not even mad at Fortnite anymore I’m just disappointed. Every single BR update brings something that makes the game so unenjoyable. There’s a reason I’ve been playing so much creative mode because it’s actually F U N. BR, not fun. Planes. Boomboxes. Zombies.”

His FaZe teammate Tfue was less critical, simply Tweeting “Zombies = Shield,” referring to the fact that after killing a number of Zombies, a shield potion will drop, bringing more shields back to the game, a welcome change.

Team Liquid’s Noah ‘Vivid’ Wright posted: “Zombies reduce RNG within this game. Only one game watched so far, so not 100% sure, but it seems like they balanced their spawn rate appropriately. This is good for the game. Opinionated, obviously.”

Fortnite content creator Dixon chimed in with: “Zombies don’t seem as bad tbh. But at least it’s only 9 days, so don’t be too upset.”

The LTM, which is works in Solo, Duos, and Squads playlists is expected to run for ten days until January 29.

It’s not the first time that Epic Games have come under fire for adding fundamentally game changing content to regular playlists, after a community backlash forced them to remove the controversial Infinity Blade.

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.
