The v7.30 Content Update will go live on Tuesday, February 5 at 5 AM PT / 8 AM ET / 1 PM GMT and as with previous Content Updates in the past, there will be no downtime.

This means that players will be able to enjoy the update as soon as it releases, although they may need to manually trigger its installation first.

“Gather around… get cozy around campfires in the v7.30 Content Update,” the official announcement reads.

As per usual, the patch notes will not be made available to the public until the update goes live, which means players have to wait until then to see everything that’s in the v7.30 Content Update. 

However, Epic have already confirmed that there will be two new items added via this update – Bottle Rockets and Foraged Campfires.

There is very little information provided about how the new rockets will actually work, but they look to be the next addition to the long list of explosive items in Fortnite. 

The exact way that these Bottle Rockets will work remains unclear, although it’s pretty obvious that they are yet another explosive item.

As for the Foraged Campfires, this new addition will allow players to interact with the burnt out campfires found at various locations throughout the map.

At the expense of 10 wood, players will be able to light these campfires and use them as a healing mechanism, very much like how the Cozy Campfire items work.

As a result of this new feature, Epic will be increasing the amount of these campfires on the map so that players will always be near enough one to quickly go over and start healing. 

Epic GamesThe Foraged Campfires will give players a lot more opportunities to heal mid-game.

There has been nothing else confirmed about the v7.30 Content Update, although players should expect further changes made to the map, which has been the theme of Season 7 so far.

There may also be cosmetic items added to game files for future release, most of which will likely be discovered and leaked by data miners shortly after the update goes live.

Make sure to keep an eye on our Twitter @Dexerto, as well as the Dexerto Fortnite page, as we will bring you the full patch notes, first look at the two new items, any leaked content, and more.

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.
