Fortnite pro Nate Hill was eliminated from a match due to a bug involving his glider during the Grand Finals of the $2.6 million Fortnite Fall Skirmish.

The bug was caught live on the official Fortnite stream, leading to an awkward moment for the casters.

Nate Hill and his partner Funkbomb jumped off of a ramp build to redeploy their gliders. The moment started off in Funkbomb’s POV, from which you can see Nate Hill standing on a bridge.

But when the camera cuts to Nate Hill’s POV, you can see he is not on the bridge at all but actually gliding towards the ground.

The glitch appeared to show Nate Hill that he was still gliding, but to the rest of the game world he was actually falling without a glider.

His name popped into the kill feed as being eliminated from fall damage, and it looked like his character went into a fall death animation long before he actually hit the ground.

Nate jumped up from his chair in frustration while he was still visible on stream and appeared to yell an expletive or two.

CouRage was casting the match and calmly transitioned away from the potentially game breaking bug by saying, “seemed like [Nate Hill’s] glider was malfunctioning a little bit, so we’ll wait from League Ops on that one.”

League Ops would not respond or comment for the rest of the tournament, but fortunately for Nate Hill and Funkbomb, the glitch may not have had a negative impact on their result. Funkbomb went on to finish second by himself in the match to still earn the team points.

They also finished in second place overall, five points back of the winners Tfue and Cloakzy.

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


Fortnite Witchshacks
Epic Games
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.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Epic Games
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

Fortnite Halloween props
Epic Games
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…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
