‘NickEh30’ Has Mastered the Art of Sniping From the ATK Passenger Seat in Fortnite

The addition of ATKs in Fortnite has turned out to be a good one, as the vehicles have proven popular among the game’s vast player-base.

The ATKs have opened the door for players, such as popular YouTuber ‘NickEh30,’ to learn how to pull off a whole new assortment of stunts and trick-shots. 

In fact, NickEh30 has apparently already mastered the art of sniping from the passenger seat of the vehicles.

He has posted a video on his Twitter page which shows him eliminated two enemy players using a sniper rifle, all while riding in the passenger seat of an ATK.

It seems that he has the technique down to a science; he first drives the ATK in the direction that he needs it to go, then switches over to the passenger seat and pulls out his sniper rifle to take out his opponents.

Perhaps the most impressive part about the whole thing is that he is able to hit these shots while the vehicle is moving at a fast speed, something that is not easy to execute.

Apparently this whole “sniping from the passenger seat” routine has gotten too easy for NickEh30, and he’s looking to mix it up in the future.

In the tweet that contained the clip, the YouTuber vowed to pull off a much more difficult type of trickshot involving the ATK:

…Also, I’m gonna build ramps and place Bouncer Pads on them, drive my ATK up there, bounce off, switch seats, zoom in—HEADSHOT. I’m pulling it off next time!

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.
