Glider Redeploy has only been back in the game for a few days, but players have already found a way to use the item without losing a charge.

Glider Redeploy was an unpopular mechanic added to the game in 2018 that allowed Fortnite players to pull out their glider when falling as a way of avoiding fall damage.

The addition was immediately controversial among Fortnite fans, who stated that it lessened the skill gap as players who made a mistake or were less talented builders faced no consequence for falling off a tall structure.

Glider Redeploy returned as an item in the V7.20 update.

The mechanic was reintroduced to the game with the V7.20 update, which saw it make its return in the form of an item, which can be picked up around the map, or found in chests and supply drops.

While the item has a limit of 5 uses, it seems Fortnite fans have found a way to avoid that, by using the charge while standing on a surface, dropping it for another item and then jumping off, with players still able to use the glider without the item in their inventory.

When picked back up, the Glider item will have not lost a charge, as it was not in the player’s inventory when it was used.

Fortnite fans have been frustrated with Glider Redeploy being brought back as an item as its appearance has made it extremely difficult to find Shield Potions, as players believe that Epic Games failed to readjust drop rates to compensate.

Epic Games have yet to comment on the unlimited Glider Redeploy situation, but it’s likely to be fixed in the next Fortnite update which is scheduled for Tuesday, January 22.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
