One Fortnite location is giving players “god mode” and it’s too easy

A bizarre glitch with vehicles and Stashes has been found in Fortnite Season 4, which is seemingly giving players “god mode” in-game.

Since the start of Season 4, Fortnite players have been eager to check out all of the Marvel-themed changes and unlock new superhero (and superhero-adjacent) characters such as Thor, Groot, and more.

However, a strange exploit has also been found following the latest update, which is seemingly giving players “god mode” in-game and ruining matches in Season 4.

A strange vehicle exploit is giving players “god mode” in Fortnite.

This unusual exploit, which is done by glitching in and out of a vehicle, apparently allows players to shake off any damage dealt by their opponents and can be quite frustrating to deal with.

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King revealed that it could only be done in areas with a Stash, adding that the drive-in theater west of Frenzy Farm was the best spot for this new exploit.

The content creator explained that it could be done by destroying the Stash just before jumping into it, causing your character to glitch when entering a nearby vehicle.

However, while those who do the glitch are immune to all bullets and explosive damage, they can still be killed off by the storm, meaning that it is not without its counters.

It is also worth noting that once your Fortnite character is stuck in this exploit, you can not walk around and will have to rely on the vehicle to move around the map.

Although Glitch King used a car for his attempt, he also claimed that players could get the same results from a Choppa.

Once the glitched vehicle that you are driving is destroyed, your character will simply float up in the air, as highlighted by Glitch King.

As of now, Epic Games has yet to address this unusual “god mode” exploit but will likely be looking to patch it in a future update.

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
