Fortnite fans are always looking for fast ways to rotate to different locations around the map, and it seems like there is now an easy way to do it involving the Quadcrasher.

Since the removal of Glider Redeploy, fans have been looking for easy ways to travel from place to place quickly, with the Quadcrasher and using a Rift the only available methods that allow players to rotate around the map.


For those who are having difficulty using the Quadcrasher to rotate, or weren’t aware that this is possible, YouTuber ‘ImSpeedyGonzalez’ has uploaded a handy guide full of tricks and tips to help you make the most of the Quadcrasher.

Once players have found a Quadcrasher, they need to then build a ramp that will allow the four-wheeler to gain height.

ImSpeedyGonzalez states that the key to rotating using the Quadcrasher is making sure that you always maintain an upward trajectory. To do this, players should fire their boost while facing up, then perform a half-backflip, arching the Quadcrasher until it’s just about to flip over, then pull it back down again and repeat the trick.

An easy way to ensure that you’re maintaining an upward trajectory is by using the Quadcrasher’s scoreboard. Underneath the points total on the left hand side is an arrow pointing upwards, which actually tells you how high you are off the ground. By keeping an eye on this, you can always make sure you’re flying upwards, and make adjustments when necessary.


By using this method, players can fly from one side of the map to the other in seconds, meaning no location is off limits if you have one of these ATVs. It can also be used to escape the storm, meaning you can wait until the last second before making a move.

The use of the Quadcrasher as a rotation system will definitely become more prevalent now after the removal of the unpopular Glider Redeploy system, although some Fortnite fans are already calling for its return.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points

  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points

  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.
