The recent trend of map changes in Fortnite has continued with yet another mysterious object appearing at a point-of-interest.

A new portal/time warp has materialized in Retail Row, more specifically at the ‘NOMS’ supermarket that is located in the retail half of the location.

Players began seeing the portal on July 3rd, hovering just in front of the massive storefront sign.

As alluded to before, this is not the first mysterious object to appear on the Fortnite map in the aftermath of the in-game Rocket launch event that took place on June 30th

Similar portals have been seen at Lonely Lodge, Motel, and Tomato Town, and each have caused considerable damage a while after initially appearing.

This would suggest that a similar fate is in store for the NOMS sign, a theory which is further strengthened by leaks released by a source known as ‘Fortnite Leakage’ on Twitter.

The leaked files show the Motel sign and the revolving Tomato Man from Tomato Town, both of which were destroyed by the portals that had appeared in front of them.

The destroyed NOMS sign is also included in these leaked files, along with objects that do not yet exist in Fortnite. 

However, one included image that does exist is that of the Durrr Burger restaurant sign located in Greasy Grove.

If these leaks are accurate, that could mean a portal should be appearing at the location very soon, and that the sign would likely be destroyed shortly thereafter.

Fortnite invisibility glitch lets players cause absolute chaos

Fortnite players have got a new way to go invisible and troll their opponents, and it involves using the Mudflap truck. 

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded, and Epic Games has added plenty of new content to the battle royale, players have found more and more ways to get an advantage over their opponents – be it legitimately or by using glitches and exploits.

In the past, these glitches have ranged from being able to use whatever skin you want, getting under the map, and being able to carry more items than normally allowed. 

There have also been God Mode and invisibility exploits too. While Epic has been pretty good at rooting those out, even disabling the items that help players use these glitches, there’s a new one they’ll have to get rid of.

The Mudflap truck is central to the new glitch.

The new invisibility glitch was pointed out by YouTuber GlitchKing who showed that it works similar to the invisibility glitch with the boat in seasons past. 

Players have to be knocked at the same time they’re entering a Mudflap truck, and then by doing so, are thrown underneath the truck while knocked. If they’re then picked up a teammate, they are invisible to everyone else in the lobby. 

Sometimes it doesn’t work as intended, obviously, as GlitchKing showed that his friend had attempted it a few times – once being throw under the map and another being eliminated altogether.

Obviously, when players are invisible, it’s impossible to get a read on their position. As GlitchKing demonstrated, he was able to cause havoc by damaging enemies who were clueless as to where he was. Though, he did give the game away by picking up knocked enemies.

Given that the glitch revolves around the Mudflap, Epic might have to disable the vehicle while they get things figured out, but as of writing, the problem hasn’t made its way to their Trello board so it remains to be seen as to whether or not they’re aware of it.
