New crazy Fortnite glitch allows players to get under the map by using a Mounted Turret

It seems as though once one glitch in Fortnite Battle Royale gets fixed, another one pops up in its place as players have found a new bug in the game that allows them to get underground.

The glitch is relatively easy to exploit and it requires the use of a Mounted Turret placed on a single floor structure that needs to be built into a slanted area on the ground.

Once a player has a Mounted Turret in their inventory, they then need to find a point outdoors that has a slanted surface. A floor structure then needs to be built at the lowest point of the slope, which is where the angle of the slope flattens out. 

At this point the edge of the floor structure should be slightly visible but most of it should have automatically been built into the ground area where the slope begins to rise.

Once that is done, the game will register a presence of a floor there and allow for a Mounted Turret to be placed upon it, although the result will have the turret buried halfway into the slanted ground. 

In order to activate the glitch, you must first have a Mounted Turret set up in this exact position or something very similar.

At this point, the player then needs to enter the turret and immediately exit it, which will trigger the bug to activate and thrust the player into the underground area of the map.

It’s important to note that the glitch will not work if the player enters the turret and begins to swing it around; this will only work if the player enters then exits the turret without doing any motions in between.

A video of this process can be seen below, courtesy of YouTuber ‘penguinzomby,’ who claims to have reported the glitch to Epic Games prior to publishing the video. 

As the video above shows, the resulting effect of exploiting the glitch is rather remarkable, allowing the player to access virtually anywhere on the Fortnite map completely submerged underground and out of sight of all enemy players. 

What’s more stunning about this is that the underground player can still very much affect what’s going on above-ground, which the YouTuber demonstrates by activating a Boom Box and destroying structures. 

If Epic are aware of this bug, which is very likely the case, then it should be patched in the very near future. Those who want to try it out should do so in Playground or Creative Mode and not in public matches, as that could result in a ban for knowingly exploiting a bug.

How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
