Popular Youtuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem has announced an awesome prize for the winner of the new $5k ‘FortniteSaturday’ tournament.

Across the gaming world, few titles can compare to Fortnite: Battle Royale in terms of name recognition and popularity in recent months, due to its ability to successfully break into ‘mainstream’ culture.

With the casual community still going strong, many have inquired about the possibility of Fortnite esports in the future by running a collection of different tournaments and events, including KEEMSTAR’s ‘FridayFortnite’ series which includes some of the top streamers, YouTubers, and personalities on the title.

However, with KEEMSTAR wanting to keep ‘FridayFortnite’ for the big-name creators, he managed to create a second installment of the series titled ‘SaturdayFortnite’ with a $5K prize pool to help promote smaller personalities across the scene in collaboration with UMG.

Hours after the initial ‘SaturdayFortnite‘ announcement, the Drama Alert host unveiled that the winner of the tournament will get a spot in ‘FridayFortnie’ for ‘at least’ one week.

The first installment of ‘SaturdayFortnite’ is scheduled to be held on Saturday, June 2nd at 4 PM EST (1 PM PST, 6 PM BST), although, the full list of competitors has yet to be released.

We will continue to update the story as more information is made available in the coming weeks.

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.
