A Reddit user has created a ‘Moonlight’ Limited Time Mode concept for Fortnite: Battle Royale which involves the map being plummeted into darkness.

Limited Time Modes in Fortnite have gained a substantial amount of notoriety in recent months for their ability to bring something ‘fresh’ to the title, with the modes allowing players to experience the game in a collection of new ways.

Epic Games, the developer of Fortnite, has continuously attempted to design LTM’s that will put a spin on the title, and stray away from the typical playlists of Solos, Duos, and Squads in order to test potential future additions.

The developer has always taken feedback from community members incredibly seriously since Fortnite’s release in 2017 on platforms such as Twitter and Reddit, including possible ideas for new LTM’s and other new content.

A Reddit user by the name of FLcitizen has created a new LTM concept titled ‘PUBG Has Dropped The Lawsuit Against Epic Games and Fortnite

Players will be given headlamps and thermal weapons so they can navigate through the darkness, however, if caught in the storm, headlamps will no longer work and players will only be able to rely on the mini-map for direction.

A full list of the rules can be found below, along with the original LTM-concept poster.

  • All scoped weapons will be thermal – At the moment, the only weapon that is thermal is the Scoped Assault Rifle, which has been added to Fortnite Battle Royale quite recently. The other Scoped weapons in the game at the moment are the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle and the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle, which currently have no thermal attachment.
  • Head Lamps – players will be able to turn these on/off and will be necessary as some areas of the map will be pitch black, even in buildings. The Head Lamps will light up an area around the players so they will be able to navigate around the map.
  • The map will also be black, except for the area in which players are located. You will only be able to see the storm circle if it is close on the map.
  • It has also been suggested that the headlamps will stop working if players are lost to the storm, but you will still be able to see your position on the map.

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.
