The past 24 hours have seen widespread discussion throughout the vast community of Fortnite: Battle Royale.

On July 4th, Epic Games announced that it was bringing back that rare ‘Red Knight’ skin to the Item Shop on July 5th, drawing a variety of reactions and responses from players.

Since its release in December, the Red Knight has only appeared in the Item Shop a few times, the last time being on February 20th.

This has led to it becoming one of the more rare cosmetic items in the game, as some of the earlier players were able to purchase the skin but most newer ones never got the chance to own it.

100 Thieves YouTuber ‘NoahJ456,’ whose content focuses around Fortnite, had an idea on how Epic can still allow newer players to purchase some of these skins while keeping the originally sold ones rare.

The trick would be to introduce some a color change that would differentiate the original ones from the newer.

While this idea makes sense and could work to keep both sides of the debate happy, it may not exactly fulfill Epic’s goal when it comes to re-releasing these skins.

Although they have not explicitly stated this as a reason, but many are of the belief that bringing back rare skins to the Item Shop is a way for Epic to combat illegal account selling and scams, which would still go on if they used NoahJ’s idea.

FaZe Fortnite pro Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson was left stunned after he was removed from an FNCS Week 2 session for an unusual bug with the Stark Industries vault.

With the FNCS starting to ramp up again for the Season 4 finals, many of the top players will be looking to battle it out and qualify for the Fortnite playoffs on October 29.

FaZe Clan star Mongraal is regularly seen near the top in the FNCS’ European events, but while competing in the second week of the Season 4 tournament, the Fornite pro was surprisingly removed from one of the games.

Mongraal discovered a bug with the Stark Industries vault while competing in the FNCS.

After dropping into the first match of the FNCS Week 2 Trios session, Mongraal, along with teammates Mitr0 and Tayson, landed at the Stark Industries POI to kick off the game.

The new Marvel point-of-interest, which was added in Season 4, features one of the few vaults on the map and can be a great place to pick up some early loot, if it is not contested by another team.

However, after killing the Iron Man boss and grabbing the keycard, Mongraal was surprisingly kicked from the game when trying to open up the vault door.

“I just got kicked, no!” he reacted, realizing that his chances of picking up points in the tournament, and earning a good placing, had become even more difficult.

While the Fortnite error code did not give an exact reason why he was removed from the match, he claimed that it was likely due to him meleeing the Vault, “It’s because I was spamming the door.”

As players have come up with some unusual ways to glitch in and out of the vault without keycards, it is possible that Epic Games could have set up countermeasures to prevent players from cheating in competitive playlists, like the FNCS sessions, and it may have been triggered by him rushing to get in the door.

Despite being kicked from the first game, Mongraal was not banned from the FNCS event and was able to rejoin his teammates in the second match to continue their tournament run.
