Game-breaking Fortnite exploit makes players immune to storm damage

A game-breaking Fortnite bug has been discovered that allows players to hang around in the storm without taking damage, providing an easy victory.

Since the launch of Fortnite Chapter 2, there have been a few major bugs that have come out that will let players easily level through their Battle Pass.

The first one lets players collect an endless amount of experience by visiting the four bridges around the map, and this second one will let players collect free wins if they don’t care about their dignity.

EPIC GAMESSlurpy Swamp has a yummy exploit.

This exploit allows players to survive in the storm without losing any health, so they’ll be able to just hang back while the circle closes without taking any damage whatsoever. 

Many players have already been running into these exploits, meaning the word is spreading and Epic will have no choice but to address this one quick.

Twitter page FNBRHQ posted a video on how to perform the exploit, revealing just how easy it is.

All you have to do is land in the Slurpy Swamp and run into a wall where you’ll then be given a constant regeneration of your health.

It turns out that the water in this swamp is more powerful than it seems. This is definitely an unfortunate glitch to have in the game as it’ll be very frustrating to lose to somebody performing this exploit.

Twitter user swashintv captured the final moments of their game, showing a second-place finish thanks to the glitch.

The developers have their hands full with these latest exploits and we hope fixes will be on the way in the near future.

At the time of writing, Epic have not addressed the issue but it’s going to become increasingly more difficult to ignore this one as it continues to happen.

Be on the lookout for a hotfix in the future if Epic decides to address these two bugs.


TimTheTatman rage quits after finding three fishing rods in Fortnite

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
