Fortnite: TSM’s Myth shows ridiculous new editing trick that works almost 100% of the time

With so much emphasis put on building in Fortnite Battle Royale, a new editing trick has surfaced online that players should start using as soon as possible.

This new trick allows players to replace an enemy player’s built wall with their own, all while protecting themselves and not being exposed to any potential counter-fire. 

Pulling off the method is relatively simple – the first step requires the attacking player to build a ramp between them and the target wall. 

Then, while that ramp is being formed, the player must get close enough to the enemy’s wall and break it down through the ramp, immediately placing their own wall in its place.

The key here is to locate the critical damage point on the wall that’s underneath the ramp and strike it there, as that critical damage will be enough to destroy the wall with one swing of the pickaxe while still leaving enough health for the ramp to remain standing. 

There are several reasons why this trick can be a powerful addition to anyone’s arsenal of moves. First of all, trying to break down and replace an enemy’s wall the traditional way can be hard to do because the enemy player can just sit there with their building interface out and spam build a new wall in the old one’s place.

However, by doing it from behind the cover of a ramp, the enemy will likely be caught off guard by their wall getting destroyed, which gives the attacking player just enough time to place their own wall. 

The result then gives players a huge advantage during build fights because they can now edit the wall as they please and also place trap items onto its surface.

Furthermore, having the ability to destroy the target wall through a ramp while not destroying the ramp itself is crucial in keeping the player safe from a counterattack. 

Hitting the critical point of the target wall with your pickaxe is important because it destroys the wall without destroying the ramp.

Team SoloMid Fortnite pro player ‘Myth’ showcased this new edit trick during a match he played live on his stream, and it’s quite clear how effective and powerful it is when executed correctly.

While the enemy protected their wall with spam builds, Myth was able to throw him off by building the ramp, which gave him the perfect distraction to replace the wall, edit it open, and aggressively push through and eliminate his opponent.

The official Fortnite Twitter account started the hype train for the game’s next Fortnite Crew release by changing their avatar and issuing cryptic tweets about ‘Fox Clan,’ and fans are already speculating on when the next big surprise might arrive.

Fortnite has a long history of using in-game and social media teasers to hype up the BR’s future content. Whether teasing some new skins or a complete rework of the game’s universe, Epic Games is no stranger when it comes to feeding players a slow drip of hints to build up the hype.

With Chapter 2 Season 5 well underway, players have already been treated to special events like Terminator and Predator crossovers. However, Season 5 doesn’t end until March 15 and players are already looking for clues on what the season’s next content drop might include.

On January 24, Fortnite’s official Twitter account changed its avatar and tweeted out two mysterious hints linked to the game’s next big reveal. The community quickly flooded Twitter to discuss what these new teasers might mean for the February Fortnite Crew release.

Fortnite Drift Crew Pack Skin HYPEX Leak
Epic Games
Fortnite data miner HYPEX revealed the game’s new teasers are related to an upcoming Fortnite Crew skin for Drift.

The first tweet referenced establishing a connection and beginning a scan, which didn’t give fans much to go off of. However, the second part had some important implications, and included a reference to one of the games most iconic characters: Drift.

“Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?” the last sentence read. Drift was originally introduced in Fortnite’s first Season 5, and was loved by players for his unique kitsune appearance and skins (kitsune means fox in Japanese, and these creatures often appear in Japanese folklore).

The second tweet issued a cryptic warning: “I know you don’t know who I am, but the Fox Clan is in trouble. We need you.” Fox Clan is something completely new to Fortnite, but it appeared to tie in with Drift’s previous in-game aesthetic and the account’s updated avatar.

Fortnite data miner HYPEX also believed the teasers are related to Drift. The leaker shared an image of an unreleased Drift skin – which appeared to be a female version of the previously-male character – and confirmed the skin will be included in the February edition of the Fortnite Crew subscription.

Fortnite Crew – Epic’s monthly subscription model – nets players each new battle pass and 1,000 V-bucks every season, along with Crew Packs that include an exclusive outfit and matching accessory. HYPEX confirmed that the teased Drift skin will be tied to an upcoming Crew Pack.

So far, Epic Games has not revealed any additional clues other than the two mysterious tweets. While new information will continue to be discovered by HYPEX and other data miners, no additional clues have been posted at the time of writing.

Fortnite fans will need to wait for confirmation on exactly what Epic has planned for the February Crew Pack. We will make sure to keep you updated as any new information is revealed at Fortnite Intel on Twitter.
