Popular Twitch streamer Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani demonstrated the perfect use for ‘friendly bot grenades’ with a ridiculous outplay trick in Fortnite to kick off Season 2.

Since the release of Fortnite’s Season 2 update, many players have returned to the action to experience the new changes introduced in the most recent patch.

TSM member Myth was among some of the top streamers who have been enjoying the new season, and is already using the new items to deadly effect.

Myth: Twitch
TSM Myth has built a massive following from his Fortnite streams.

During his February 21 stream, the TSM content creator highlighted the perfect use for the friendly bot grenades, that were added in Chapter 2, by completely outsmarting his opponent.

While Myth was looting one of his previous kills, he found himself getting rushed by another player looking to capitalize on the weakened pro.

However, instead of trying to escape or outbuild the enemy player, Myth simply deployed the friendly bot grenade – and started running into the wall in an attempt at fooling his opponent into thinking he was the bot.

Despite initially shooting at Myth, the other player quickly assumed that he was one of the clones and started to run by him, fearful that he would be distracted by the wrong character.

Fortunately for Myth, it worked out perfectly in his favor as managed to secure an easy kill on the unsuspecting enemy after realizing what had happened.

Myth is clearly a fan of the newly added grenades, however, the popular Fortnite streamer revealed that there was one other feature that he would love to see added in Season 2.

Although this trick won’t work 100% of the time, this friendly bot grenade outplay can make for some very entertaining highlights.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes

Witchshacks

These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…
