100 Thieves streamer Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff is planning to make the jump from Fortnite on PlayStation and move to the PC version of the game.

While playing squads with CouRage, Cypher and Team Liquid’s POACH, the subject turned to Nick, and the fact that he was possibly hampering his growth by playing on PlayStation and not on PC.

NICKMERCS seemed to agree with the statement and revealed that he was considering making the switch;

“I think that’s why I’m going to make the switch to PC full time, but with a controller. What we were playing on during the tournament felt 100 times better, and I think I want to get in some of these scrims and start actually playing.”

With Nick suggesting that he may make the jump in order to improve his skills, it seems certain that he plans to continue competing in Fortnite tournaments for the considerable future.

The 100 Thieves streamer had an opportunity to test Fortnite on PC during the Summer Skirmish event at PAX West, where he finished in 17th position and took home $11,250 for his efforts.

What makes NICKMERCS’ high placings even more impressive is that he is one of the few top level players who use a controller instead of a mouse and keyboard to compete.

Using a controller should, in theory, put him at a disadvantage against his opponents, but you wouldn’t know it from watching the American play. If he starts playing on PC regularly, he might just be unstoppable.


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.
