Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins masterfully put the new ‘Shopping Cart’ in Fortnite: Battle Royale to use with a perfectly-timed Clinger Grenade double-kill on an enemy team.

When it comes to adding new content, few games can compare to Fortnite in recent months in regards to patches, updates, and an overall schedule of in-game maintenance.

New updates are introduced weekly by Epic Games into Fortnite, which feature additions such as new items, outfits, weapons, and much more, along with their ability to fix any problems or issues that may arise in a quick fashion.

On May 25th, Epic Games took Fortnite to the next level by introducing the ‘Shopping Cart,’ allowing players to traverse the map in a quick fashion and battle enemy opponents in a hilarious manner.

When testing out the new Shopping Cart, Ninja got into a heated battle with an enemy duo which turned into a ‘jousting’ fight and ended up taking out the team with a well-timed Clinger Grenade throw, much to his enjoyment.

More content like this can be viewed on Ninja’s official Twitch and YouTube channels, with updates from the streamer coming via his Twitter account.

Information on the latest V.4.3.0 update including patch notes, new additions, and more can be found right here.

SypherPK finds his own secret easter egg in Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite sensation SypherPK made a public request a few weeks back and Epic Games seem to have heard him loud and clear as the content creator was stunned by his very own secret easter egg in Season 5.

As one of the most popular Fortnite content creators, SypherPK has millions of fans that listen to his every word. As it turns out, a few developers are among those avid viewers. A request made on November 2 has finally made an impact, thanks to those at Epic Games who tuned into his video.

Members of his community were pleading for SypherPK to receive his own in-game reference. Whether it’s a small poster somewhere on the map, or even an entire Point of Interest referring back to his name. However, the YouTuber had something else in mind.

“We need something that’s very simple,” he said. “We want to add a book to Fortnite. A ‘How to Win’ book,” based on one of his most popular series. Well with the arrival of a brand new season, SypherPK’s wish has come true.

“They actually did it,” he shared on December 2. One of the first things he did in Season 5 was check the weather station. Even to his surprise, the developers had listened to his request and actually followed through.

“This is my creation,” he said in shock upon discovering a vibrant red book exactly where he requested one to be. While it doesn’t reference the ‘How to Win’ series in any way, Sypher was overjoyed at the fact his community had “added something to the game.”

There’s now a physical item in-game thanks to a video he made back in November. Not only that, but the book has been special in a few ways. For starters, physics are applied to the object, so it properly bounces around and moves as you’d expect it to. The book is also invincible, meaning players can’t go about destroying Sypher’s unique creation.

It’s one of the more subtle easter eggs in Fortnite. If you weren’t an active fan of Sypher before Season 5, you wouldn’t be aware of this secret at all. But for those in the know, it’s a special little reference just for his community.

Obviously, the easter egg has no real influence on the game, so don’t track it down expecting some kind of buff or secret item to come along with it. But it’s clearly a sign that developers are always keeping tabs on the biggest content creators.

We’ve seen Icon Series skins and now subtle easter eggs. Who knows what we’ll be seeing next.
