The Mandalorian’s sniper rifle is incredibly powerful in Fortnite already, but did you know that it has bonus movement abilities too? Well, it does, and here’s how you can jump further with it equipped. 

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 is still in its infancy, but it’s already shaping up like one of the classic seasons from Epic Games. Why? There’s just so much new stuff to mess around with, new areas to explore, and plenty of content still to come as well.

What has proven incredibly popular so far has been the exotic weapons. These, for the most part, are purchasable from NPCs dotted around the map through gold bars, but if you want the best one of the lot, you’ll have to fight The Mandalorian. 

If you manage to grab his jetpack and Amban Sniper Rifle, you’re well on your way to a Victory Royale, but, there are also a few hidden tricks that you can use as well – especially with the rifle.

As popular YouTuber SypherPK points out, if you have possession of Mando’s rifle, you use the melee ability to jump forward an extra few steps. 

It’s similar to the crystals dotted around the Zero Point, but spamming the melee on Mando’s sniper won’t jump as far. It’s only a small boost, but it’s still an upper hand on your opponents who might not be expecting it. 

As Sypher points out, it’s also extremely useful in box fights. If a wall, ramp, or floor is at low health, simply melee through it and you’ll teleport to the other end of the box. If you’re quick enough, you’ll be able to take a shot before they discover you’ve jumped behind them. 

  1. Defeat The Mandalorian
  2. Pick up his Amban Sniper Rifle
  3. Spam your melee button for extra movement distance
  4. Enjoy!

There isn’t exactly a heavy cooldown or consequence to using the jump either, as you dont have to wait forever to take a shot or swap weapons after using it. 

Epic might well tweak this later down the line, especially if it becomes something that players can abuse, but for now, it’s something you should try.

SypherPK has already found quite a few tips, tricks, and glitches in Fortnite Season 5, but none are as hilarious as this one at Coral Castle that lets players ‘float’ in the air.

Fortnite Season 5 is well-polished, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t tricks and glitches that players can exploit. Game-breaking ones like being able to stay in the storm forever inevitably get patched.

However, smaller ones are more difficult to iron out, and nobody finds them better than Ali ‘SypherPk’ Hassan. He’s shared many crazy tips and tricks in the past. Now, he’s at it again with a glitch that lets players ‘float.’ He showed it off in a recent video, and the results are hilarious.

If you want to know how to do it, here’s a quick guide.

How to perform the ‘float’ glitch in Fortnite Season 5

To begin, you’ll need to make your way to Coral Castle. It’s not a popular landing spot by any means. SypherPK has only landed there about five times in total himself due to the lack of loot. However, the float glitch makes it more compelling.

Take note of what looks like a small pink pebble floating in the air. It’s difficult to spot at first, but once you’ve seen it in the video below, you’ll know what it is. Strangely, you can stand on it, even though it’s tiny.

Build your way up and perch yourself on top of the pebble. Then, knock all the platforms down and stay up there, which creates the illusion of floating. It’s no cheap gimmick, though. It’s an excellent spot to rain down some bullets on unsuspecting foes, even if it leaves you a bit vulnerable.

SypherPK managed to snag a bunch of eliminations while standing up there. He even managed to get a couple of early shots in and then swoop down on opponents while they were recovering.

SypherPK’s ‘float’ glitch probably won’t win you a game. However, it looks like a lot of fun and will likely help you secure some easy eliminations.

In the end, being innovative is a part of the game, and this glitch takes full advantage of that. 

Plus, imagine the look on your opponent’s face when they realize where they got shot from.
