With pro player Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani already discovering a way to make the mech suits leap across the map with ease, it appears that they can now be made to travel at outrageous speeds to allow for easy rotations around the map.[ad name=”article2″]
Revealed by E11 member TheFortScientist, players can use this trick to rotate around the map at unbelievable speeds, covering huge areas of the island in astonishingly quick times. What makes this exploit even crazier is that only one player needs to be inside the mech to do, so this can be utilized in any game mode.
TheFortScientist explains that by spamming the change seat button repeatedly, and hitting the jump button as well, you can fly across the map without having to exit the vehicle like other methods.
The E11 member states that this is the easiest way to perform this trick, and is perfect for rotations, whether you’re trying to escape the storm or running away from a dangerous situation.
This exploit is likely unintended, so don’t expect it to remain in the game forever, as Epic Games may decide to patch their popular battle royale game so players can’t take advantage of the easy-to-reproduce trick.
Of course, most Fortnite players are hoping that the BRUTES are removed from the game entirely, but seeing as they’ve only been around for less than a week, this seems highly unlikely.
