Popular YouTuber Justine ‘iJustine’ Ezarik showed a sneak peek of the amazing setup and venue for the Fortnite: Battle Royale Pro-Am tournament at E3.

Taking place on Tuesday, June 12th, the Fortnite: Battle Royale Pro-AM tournament will feature 50 streamers and content creators from the gaming community that will be paired up with 50 celebrities.

The tournament will feature a prize pool of $3 million, however, all prize money will be distributed to charitable organizations chosen by the winners of the event.

It will be the first Fortnite: Battle Royale competition that will be sanctioned by Epic Games themselves following the announcement that the developer will pledge $100 million to tournaments between 2018 and 2019, although, the Pro-AM is not included in that figure.

With it being held at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, it appears that Epic Games went all-out with an absolutely stunning venue and setup, as shown by iJustine in a Twitter video, who will be one of the four casters for the tournament.

The Fortnite: Battle Royale Pro-Am Charity Tournament is set to begin on Tuesday, June 12th at 6:30 PM EST (3:30 PM PST, 11:30 PM BST).

More information on the Pro-AM including teams, casters, and much more can be found right here.

Fortnite invisibility glitch lets players cause absolute chaos

Fortnite players have got a new way to go invisible and troll their opponents, and it involves using the Mudflap truck. 

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded, and Epic Games has added plenty of new content to the battle royale, players have found more and more ways to get an advantage over their opponents – be it legitimately or by using glitches and exploits. 

In the past, these glitches have ranged from being able to use whatever skin you want, getting under the map, and being able to carry more items than normally allowed. 

There have also been God Mode and invisibility exploits too. While Epic has been pretty good at rooting those out, even disabling the items that help players use these glitches, there’s a new one they’ll have to get rid of.

The Mudflap truck is central to the new glitch.

The new invisibility glitch was pointed out by YouTuber GlitchKing who showed that it works similar to the invisibility glitch with the boat in seasons past. 

Players have to be knocked at the same time they’re entering a Mudflap truck, and then by doing so, are thrown underneath the truck while knocked. If they’re then picked up a teammate, they are invisible to everyone else in the lobby. 

Sometimes it doesn’t work as intended, obviously, as GlitchKing showed that his friend had attempted it a few times – once being throw under the map and another being eliminated altogether.

Obviously, when players are invisible, it’s impossible to get a read on their position. As GlitchKing demonstrated, he was able to cause havoc by damaging enemies who were clueless as to where he was. Though, he did give the game away by picking up knocked enemies.

Given that the glitch revolves around the Mudflap, Epic might have to disable the vehicle while they get things figured out, but as of writing, the problem hasn’t made its way to their Trello board so it remains to be seen as to whether or not they’re aware of it.
