A Reddit user has found a possible glitch in Fortnite Battle Royale that allows players to shoot through walls using a brick door.

While structures built in Fortnite might look to have spaces between pieces of wood or between bricks, it’s generally not possible to actually shoot through a built without building a window in which to shoot through.

The latest trick discovered on Reddit, however, seems to allow players to stand behind the full cover of a structure and fully shoot through using a specific edit and material combination.

Reddit user ‘CleverD3vil’ explains the trick in a thorough video in which he tests a variety of different weapons to see which ones are able to utilize the new strategy.

Completing the trick is quite easy as players start off by building two walls on top of one another and then editing a door into the top wall.

Once the wall is built, the player simply aims through the crack between the bottom of the door and, instead of being stopped by the structure, the shots are able to travel right through.

It looks as though it only works with brick since there is a clear space under the door, whereas a door in a wooden or metal structure stops any bullets from going through

Not all weapons are created equal here, though, as ones with more bloom than others can’t benefit as much from the trick.

Everything from the SCAR and Scoped Assault Rifle to the Heavy Sniper Rifle work just fine, with the Dual Pistols and SMGs suffering from too much bloom to be effective.

Given the nature of the trick, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Epic Games step in and make some changes as they have shown a willingness to do in the past with similar glitches or exploits.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.
