The combination of Shopping Carts and the new Playground Limited Time Mode in Fortnite opens the door to virtually limitless possibilities of creative genius.

With nearly a whole hour of undisturbed fun available in the new mode, it’s only a matter of time before social media is filled with clips of players doing incredible stunts and acrobatic tricks.

A recent example of this was done by Cloud9 streamer and Fortnite pro Jacob ‘Hysteria’ Reiser.

Using the freedom he had in the Playground LTM to his advantage, Hysteria demonstrated how to fly across Loot Lake using a Shopping Cart.

The key to it all were the massive structures that he and his teammates built across the lake, each of which were topped with their own set of bounce pads.

Using a taller ramp at the start, Hysteria jettisoned his Shopping Cart high into the air and onto the first bouncer structure, which sent him to the next structure, and so on.

Perhaps the best part about the stunt, other than its impeccable execution, was the use of the Eagle emote, which made Hysteria’s in-game character was in fact flying.

Of course, the whole thing was quite hilarious, and it makes one wonder what tricks players will come up with next with all the time they have in the Playground.

Hot on the heels of Minecraft’s huge arrival in Smash Ultimate, could Fortnite be next in line? Epic Games creative director Donald Mustard has reportedly hinted at that being the case.

Smash Bros. collaborations have long-been one of the most exciting aspects of Nintendo’s popular fighting game. Teasers are always the talk of the town as developers hint at what major addition could be on the horizon in a nearby update.

While the Smash community is still getting comfortable with Minecraft’s Steve joining the fight, it could already be time to look towards the next character.

A recent Zoom call between Geoff Keighley, Donald Mustard, and select fans was kept under wraps at the time. Whatever fans asked, whatever topics came up, it wasn’t for the general public in the moment.

However, as with most things in the gaming industry, certain details have reportedly leaked online days after the fact. Among the topics discussed was a Fortnite crossover in Smash: here’s what the Creative Director had to say.

Throughout this Zoom call, “a few hints had been revealed about the future of Fortnite,” prominent leaker FireMonkey’ said on Oct. 28. The first major revelation is a Fortnite announcement is lined up for The Game Awards on Dec. 10.

This isn’t the first time Epic’s battle royale has made a splash at Keighley’s annual awards show. The Block was revealed back in 2018 and another big announcement could be lined up for the 2020 show. Perhaps it relates to an upcoming in-game event as the new Season draws near. Or maybe there’s a chance we see another Smash tie-in revealed rather soon.

2018’s Game Awards shocked the world with one of the biggest Smash crossover announcements yet. Persona 5’s Joker joined the fight and now Fortnite could be next for a similar reveal. 

When pressed on the subject, Donald Mustard didn’t shut down the possibility. He simply “stated he can’t comment about it,” according to the leaked intel. Funnily enough, last time a dev said “no comment,” their game ended up in Smash.

Obviously, there’s no telling how significant this kind of crossover might be. We’ve seen everything from entirely new fighters to simple Mii skins as well. Given the popularity of Fortnite, however, there’s every chance a crossover with Smash would make waves in the industry.

Keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks for any additional teasers. Keighley’s 2020 Game Awards kicks off on Thursday, December 10.
