Game-breaking Fortnite exploit instantly destroys anything you touch

A new glitch has been found with the Whirlpool in Fortnite that lets players instantly destroy any buildings or obstacles their character touches in-game.

Fortnite is well known for being the first battle royale title to introduce unique building mechanics, adding a whole new dynamic to the gunfights and allowing for some ridiculous outplays.

While creating and editing builds to your advantage is a common tactic, Fortnite players have now found a new exploit that instantly destroys any nearby walls or buildings and could be used as a strong counter.

Fortnite players have found an exploit that can quickly destroy any buildings.

This bug, which can be done with the help of the Whirlpool, glitches your character and lets them destroy anything they touch, similar to how some of the game’s vehicles would.

The unusual trick was shared by Fortnite YouTuber DopeFTL, who explained that players would need to travel to the island with the dancefloor between Rickety Rig and The Fortilla.

DopeFTL also revealed that having Crash Pads would make the glitch a bit easier, although they are not required to use this exploit.

How to instantly destroy builds in Fortnite

  1. First, loot some Crash Pads and make your way to the Island with the dance floor near Rickety Rig.
  2. You’ll then need to enter the Porta-Potty teleporter in the main room and spam the ‘jump’ button.
  3. Once you come out of the whirlpool, your glider should be canceled
  4. Now, simply throw and land on a Crash Pad in the water below.
  5. After completing these steps you should be able to instantly destroy any building you touch.

This trick can be quite effective for making your way through opponents builds, however, the glitch does not provide you with any more health, meaning you will still have to fight your way to a victory royale.

As Epic Games have been quick to patch other glitches with the Whirlpool, including a bizarre God Mode glitch which made players invincible, it is likely that they will look to remove this one in a future update as well.

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
