Popular streamer and Fortnite extraordinaire, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, continues to break records as he ascends to the top of the internet and gaming world.

The former professional Halo player decided to start streaming full time in 2017, playing titles such as H1Z1 and PUBG to a decent audience of around six to ten thousand concurrents. That all changed when he started playing Fortnite.

The popularity of Fortnite began to explode in late 2017 and early 2018, and Ninja was at the forefront of that movement as he capitalized on the demand. This was helped by other big streamers continuing to ignore the game.

Not only was Ninja a god at the title, but he was also smart in how he marketed his clips online. He would share his best moments to Instagram, Twitter and YouTube alongside streaming for hours each day on Twitch.

In early May 2018 he surpassed the ten million subscriber milestone on YouTube, and according to YouTube’s head of gaming, Ryan ‘Fwiz’ Wyatt, he did it in record time.

The pair met at E3 2018 when Fwiz presented Ninja with the elusive Diamond Play Button.

Fwiz explained in his Tweet that Ninja grew his channel from one million subs to ten million in under 100 days, making him the fastest non-music content creator to achieve such the feat.

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.
