Streaming superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has explained why the new season of Fortnite currently feels like the previous updates – and why he prefers The Agency to Tilted Towers as a map location.

With the start of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2, Epic Games dropped the V12.00 update that added the secret agents theming, weapons, cosmetic items, and map changes to the uber-popular battle royale title. 

To tie it all into the Top Secret theme, new locations have sprung up around the map that allow players to fight against human enemies as well as NPCs in the search for better loot. As a result, these spots have become hot drops – with The Agency, which spits in the center of the map, starting to resemble Tilted Towers due to how many players drop there.

The Agency has quickly become a hot drop for kill hungry players.

During his February 26 stream, Ninja made that same comparison after being eliminated from a game – explaining that the current update “does feel like the old Fortnite.”

As to why that was, he added: “It’s still like no mats, weird loadout, early fights – this is Tilted bro. If you don’t think this is early Fortnite / Tilted, you’re in denial. All these fights are minimal building, there’s not crazy edits at the beginning – pretty much spray and pray. Anyone can kill anyone here.”

As for which one he prefers, Ninja had to side with the current drop spot. “I prefer The Agency over Tilted. I do, I prefer it. It’s literally the same thing, it’s the same.” 

The Mixer star also added that there a lot of elements that the new location takes from Fortnite including lots of chests, players being mobile, and lots of fights. “Obviously, it is not, by definition, Tilted Towers, but it is literally the same things that made Tilted great is what The Agency is.”

Of course, as the new Fortnite season unfolds, there could very well be changes made to the new points of interest. 

Whether or not that will change down the line still remains to be seen, but as it stands, Ninja is a fan of what he’s playing.

SypherPK has already found quite a few tips, tricks, and glitches in Fortnite Season 5, but none are as hilarious as this one at Coral Castle that lets players ‘float’ in the air.

Fortnite Season 5 is well-polished, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t tricks and glitches that players can exploit. Game-breaking ones like being able to stay in the storm forever inevitably get patched.

However, smaller ones are more difficult to iron out, and nobody finds them better than Ali ‘SypherPk’ Hassan. He’s shared many crazy tips and tricks in the past. Now, he’s at it again with a glitch that lets players ‘float.’ He showed it off in a recent video, and the results are hilarious.

If you want to know how to do it, here’s a quick guide.

How to perform the ‘float’ glitch in Fortnite Season 5

To begin, you’ll need to make your way to Coral Castle. It’s not a popular landing spot by any means. SypherPK has only landed there about five times in total himself due to the lack of loot. However, the float glitch makes it more compelling.

Take note of what looks like a small pink pebble floating in the air. It’s difficult to spot at first, but once you’ve seen it in the video below, you’ll know what it is. Strangely, you can stand on it, even though it’s tiny.

Build your way up and perch yourself on top of the pebble. Then, knock all the platforms down and stay up there, which creates the illusion of floating. It’s no cheap gimmick, though. It’s an excellent spot to rain down some bullets on unsuspecting foes, even if it leaves you a bit vulnerable.

SypherPK managed to snag a bunch of eliminations while standing up there. He even managed to get a couple of early shots in and then swoop down on opponents while they were recovering.

SypherPK’s ‘float’ glitch probably won’t win you a game. However, it looks like a lot of fun and will likely help you secure some easy eliminations.

In the end, being innovative is a part of the game, and this glitch takes full advantage of that. 

Plus, imagine the look on your opponent’s face when they realize where they got shot from.
