New glitch allows players to easily get to the Spawn Island in Fortnite

Thanks to a new exploit in the recently released v6.30 update in Fortnite, players now have the ability to easily access Spawn Island.

Spawn Island is an interesting location in Fortnite because each match’s group of players first spawn there before boarding the Battle Bus, and yet it’s almost impossible to find a way to get back there.


That has all changed thanks to a glitch uncovered by YouTuber ‘penguinzomby,’ who has recently learned that a simple trick can guarantee easy access to the island.

The only catch to his method is that it can only be done in Playground, and not in any of the other default or Limited Time Modes.


Once a player loads into a Playground session, they first need to find one of the aerial Pirate Ships located in the Challenge Games section of the map.

The next step is to activate the time trial minigame located on the ship, which opens up a respawn point that then needs to be blocked by building a pyramid over it. Materials to build can be acquired for free from one of the nearby Vending Machines.

It is important to block off the respawn point on the Pirate Ship.

Blocking of the respawn point is necessary because the next step involves manually respawning using the option given in the pause menu.


Because the point is blocked, the player will then respawn on the Spawn Island and off of the playable area shown in the mini-map.

There they have full liberty to explore the island to a certain extent, as there is an invisible barrier around the edges that prevent players from falling into the water.

There is also no need to be cautious when roaming the island; players who get eliminated will continue to respawn there as long as the respawn on the pirate ship remains blocked. 


Regardless, it’s hard to eliminate yourself in Playground anyway, considering that the Glider Re-Deploy feature remains active in that mode and the v6.30 update has removed the storm from the island, according to the video.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
