This simple trick in Fortnite can allow players to make a bizarre explosive drone which can be deadly to enemy players.

Since the release of Fortnite in 2018, players have been coming up with new unique tricks that could give them the edge in a battle.

Some have pushed the popular battle royale title to its limits, to discover new glitches such as a building exploit that was recently patched by Epic Games.

Fortnite players have found a bizarre trick with proximity mines which turns them into a flying drone.

One of the latest exploits was discovered by Reddit user u/SlushyGuy, who mixed two of the game’s most-deadly explosive items together in bizarre fashion to create a flying bomb.

While there are currently no drones or controllable flying explosives in Fortnite, SlushyGuy revealed that you can still pose a threat at long range with just a proximity mine and C4 in hand.

This bug seemingly combines the two items and causes them to glitch through the air, creating a flying drone that would be ready to detonate at any time. Here’s how you can try the strange trick out for yourself.

How to make a C4 and proximity mine drone in Fortnite

  1. Find C4 and proximity mine items in Fortnite.
  2. Build an upright wall in front of you.
  3. Place both of the explosives in the center panel of the wall, with the proximity mine slightly above the C4.
  4. Edit and remove the top two rows of the wall, this should cause the items to merge together.
  5. Destroy what is left of the wall with your pickaxe to set flight to the bizarre drone.
  6. Watch it fly through the skies before detonating it at will.

Unfortunately, this crazy drone can not be piloted to go where you want it to, as it seemingly has a mind of its own, making it quite situational compared to some of the previous exploits that have been in Fortnite.

As a result, it can be quite difficult to damage your opponents during a game using this trick and could take some practice angling the drone’s flight path in custom matches before pulling it out mid-match.

While this explosive drone is a cool trick to try out, it was likely not intended by Epic Games and will possibly be targeted by the dev team in one of their upcoming patches.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
