With only a couple of weeks remaining before the $30 million Fortnite World Cup, another potentially devastating glitch has been discovered with the Baller vehicles. 

Ballers have always been considered to be a controversial addition in Fortnite, especially when it comes to the competitive side of the popular battle royale. 

The complaint most players have had with the vehicle is that it offers too much protection and shelter from enemy fire, especially in late-game situations, giving players an easy way to navigate the normally-difficult endgame circles.

On top of that, a new glitch was recently found that causes players who exit the Baller to sometimes become invisible, creating headaches all around.

Now, just a day later, on July 9, another potentially game-breaking glitch has been discovered, this time allowing players to use weapons while riding in the vehicle, which is obviously not intended.

Epic GamesThere are too many bugs with Ballers ahead of the Fortnite World Cup.

A clip posted by Twitter user ‘Anime___Knight’ put the alarming effect of this new glitch on full display. In the video, the player can be seen shooting his combat shotgun while riding in the Baller.

Although the shots that were fired didn’t actually inflict any kind of damage on enemy players, the number of rounds decreased from nine to seven following the sound of two shotgun shells being fired.

Perhaps the most unusual aspect of this was that the rounds were reset back to nine when the player exited the vehicle, which begs the question of whether those shots would have even done any damage had they hit an enemy player. 

Although the exact cause(s) of this glitch remains unknown as of now, there is certainly some reason to worry for those that will be heading to New York City for the Fortnite World Cup at the end of the month.

With so much money and prestige on the line, participants will likely hold their breath in fear of this glitch striking them at a crucial moment and ruining one of their matches, especially considering that there will only be six matches played for both the Solos and Duos events. 

These glitches won’t be the only things that players will be apprehensive about in New York; the addition of the brand new Air Strike item on July 9 has garnered a lot of negative feedback, with many calling the throwable extremely overpowered.

The Fortnite World Cup will take place July 26-28, featuring finals for both the battle royale and Creative Trials, as well as another celebrity Pro-Am event.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
