LazarBeam reveals glitch to spawn infinite bots and break Fortnite

Popular YouTuber Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott managed to break Fortnite by spawning 1000 bots with a little help from his pals in a bid to run some extreme tests. 

While many Fortnite players will opt to stick with what they know in the battle royale and Save the World modes, others spread their wings a little more and push the game to its edge – coming up with genius ideas in creative mode.

However, there’s also another mode called ‘battle lab’ that some players have been using to see how much it takes to make the game crash. One such player is LazarBream, as the popular Australian content creator expanded on his earlier tests by exploiting a glitch that allows you to spawn more than the maximum number of bots.

Fortnite Season 2 has allowed players to add bots to their games through Battle Lab.

In his test, the Aussie teamed up a few of his friends to see if a glitch to spawn infinite bots was still active and if so, how many would it take to completely ruin the game. Unsurprisingly, it didn’t take much time at all – with the YouTuber’s game clearly struggling with nearly 200 bots standing about. 

On the way to 250 though, he encountered some issues, with the game coming to a grinding halt. Though, that didn’t stop him from getting back in and trying to break the 1000 bot mark. After encountering a few more issues along the way, he finally made it to his goal without the game immediately caving in. 

“There are so many bots, I don’t think they can even register that I’m even here,” LazarBeam said, before moving on to his next round of tests – including dropping them off a platform and trying to make the bots fight in teams.

Unfortunately, trying those experiments with 1000 proved to be an issue as the YouTuber stated that whenever he’d travel across the map, his game would immediately crash. 

The tests did, however, work with 300 friendly bots – though dropping them from a great height onto a set of bounce pads did seem to impact his frames in the worst possible way. So, if you’re thinking about trying it for yourself, just be warned.


How to complete Quests in Fortnite Season 5: Challenges & rewards

With Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5, challenges are seemingly no more, at least in the form that they’ve taken for a while. Now, players are able to complete quests, which operate in a similar way but are a bit different nonetheless. Here’s what you need to know about them.

For a while now, players in Fortnite have been completing challenges in order to help level up their battle pass. These challenges tasked players with completing certain objectives around the map and, in return, they are given rewards, mostly XP. It ended up being one of the main ways players could grind up their battle pass tiers and overall level.

Now, with the start of Season 5 in Chapter 2, challenges are gone, at least in the form they once took. Now, players will have to complete Quests in order to level up their battle pass. But how do you complete them and what are the actual requirements? Here’s what you need to know.

What are Quests in Fortnite Season 5?

Quests can be found in its own menu on the left-side of the screen.

Jumping into Fortnite Season 5, one might be a bit confused as to what Quests are and why they’ve replaced challenges. While don’t know for sure why exactly they’ve taken the place of the latter, you can rest assured that they operate almost identically to the old format.

In Fortnite’s main menu, you should see a button to press on the left side labeled Quests. Clicking it will bring up the map and all your Quests, similar to how it’s been in previous seasons. That being said, these new “challenges” are a bit more narrative-focused, having quotes alongside them.

Chapter 2 Season 5 Quests list

Epic Games
Fortnite Quests are similar to challenges from previous seasons.

Quests are split up into different rarities. Everyone seems to have the two same Legendary Quests, alongside some rare and uncommon quests that are different from player to player. Once a quest is done, a new one pops up in its place, which presumably will keep happening until you’ve gone through every single challenge.

That being said, for the two Quests that everyone does have, here’s what you need to complete:

  • Mandalorian Bounties: Complete Bounties
  • Legendary Quests 1: Four Stages
    • Stage 1: Shotgun Eliminations
    • Stage 2: Assault Rifle Damage
    • Stage 3: Sniper Rifle Elimination from 150m
    • Stage 4: Deal Explosive damage to structures
  • Legendary Quests 2: Three Stages
    • Stage 1: Discover Named Locations
    • Stage 2: Talk to a character
    • Stage 3: Collect bars

New Quests should be available every week as the season goes on, much like the challenges of old. We’ll be updating this piece with new objectives as they become available.

All in all, it seems like Quests are a more refined version of challenges; gone is the long list of tasks and now we have a more organized experience. Here’s hoping that Epic continues with this style in the future.
