LazarBeam hilariously exposes Fortnite’s God Mode exploits

Australian Fortnite YouTuber Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott showed that the annoying invisibility and god mode exploits can actually provide some entertainment – if you don’t use them to win. 

LazarBeam has cultivated a huge fan base on YouTube thanks to his hilarious Fortnite experiments. In the past, he has run his PC into the ground by spawning hundreds upon hundreds of bots and even won a game without moving or dealing damage to an enemy player.

Yet, in his newest video, the Aussie Fortnite content creator decided to up the ante – using the invisibility and invincibility exploits that are currently in the battle royale to hand out wins to other players. Yes, he didn’t use them to win, but to have a bit of fun instead.

For the benefit of everyone else, the YouTuber didn’t actually show how you pull off the exploits but instead, just revealed that he was using them – noting that his health was actually at zero and that he couldn’t use weapons.

As he sprinted around the map, players tried to gun him down but ultimately failed – leaving LazarBeam in hysterics. On his first attempt, the exploit didn’t work all that long – allowing him to die.

Though, he dove back in and decided to use it again. Players flocked to him, confused by his inability to take damage. However, as soon as he dove into water, his enemies could actually take him down.

The YouTuber upped the ante even further by going invisible – trolling players with slight hits of his pickaxe and destroying their 1×1 buildings before they could put any roots down.

Yet, he stayed true to his word and dove into the storm – taking one hit of zone damage and handing the win to the final time. 

Obviously, he asked Epic not to ban him as he was only having a bit of fun but his video shows that anybody can get their hands on the exploits if they try. We’ll just have to wait and see if Epic decides to patch them in the near future.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
