While it is true that “being lucky is better than being good,” there is nothing worse than being unlucky, especially in the world of Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Occasionally, even the best of Fortnite players can find themselves stung by relentless bad luck, which can sometimes lead to hilarious situations.

Such is the case for OpTic Gaming content creator Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop, whose Twitch streams primarily focus around the popular Battle Royale title.

Despite being an avid fan of Fortnite, and a decent player at that, he tends to find himself on the wrong side of unfortunate situations, often with comical results.

CouRage was streaming Fortnite earlier on May 30th when he found himself in a difficult in-game situation – he was stuck in the Storm, which was inflicting heavy damage because the match was in its final stages.

He realized that his only chance of surviving was to use one of the new, interactive Shopping Carts to drive himself out and into safety.

While initially he made it out with barely any health points left, when he tried to position a Jump Pad, he accidentally began steering the Shopping Cart again, rolling straight back into the Storm, which ate up the little health he had left and eliminated him.

Stunned, he tweeted out the clip of the entire sequence and his subsequent reaction, with a sarcastic caption that pretty much summed everything up.

“Everyone is posting their cool Shopping Cart clips from the new Fortnite update… Here is mine.’

His crazy reaction after getting eliminated is both hilarious and appropriate for someone who had just died in-game the way he did.

While most players will likely have fond memories of their first experience with the new Shopping Carts in Fortnite, CouRage will always have this debacle to look back on.

The v14.30 update has finally been released for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and it has introduced some secret changes that Epic Games did not include in the latest set of patch notes.

Fortnite’s superhero-themed Season 4 is continuing to deliver fresh content, with even more characters like Daredevil soon to be released in-game, as part of the upcoming Marvel Knockout Super Series.

However, while Epic revealed that there were other tweaks, such as minor buffs for the Combat shotgun, there were a few secret changes that were not revealed in the latest patch notes. Here’s everything you need to know.

Galactus added to the Fortnite map

While there have been many Marvel heroes added to Fortnite in Season 4, it was also revealed that Galactus would appear in the battle royale as the villain, ahead of the Nexus War event.

It seems as if he has finally been added to the Fortnite map after some eagle-eyed Fortnite fans discovered a change in the map’s skyline, with a bizarre red dot now visible after the 14.30 patch.

Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey revealed that the “distant object” in the sky was Galactus and that he was on his way to the Fortnite island ahead of his showdown with the Avengers and other Marvel characters.

New Black Panther Mythic Ability

Fortnite’s Season 4 also saw the introduction of new Mythic Abilities that players can equip in-game and the latest update, on October 13, added a Black Panther ability called “Kinetic Armor.”

The new power works similarly to the character’s suit in the popular Marvel movies, allowing players to absorb more damage, run faster, and even deal damage to nearby opponents and structures, after it has been activated.

Fortnite YouTuber SypherPK shared gameplay of Black Panther’s Kinetic Armor and revealed that it can be found in the Stark Industries Supply Drones that are scattered across different points-of-interest on the Fortnite map.

Fortnite Holly Hedges map changes

There were also some secret map changes that were not mentioned in Fortnite’s recent patch notes and the v14.30 update saw tweaks to the Superstore near the Holly Hedges POI.

With some Halloween-themed changes expected to arrive in Fortnite in the coming weeks, Epic Games has redecorated the landmark and renamed it the “Hey Boo Megastore.”

While this is one of the first Halloween-based changes so far, it is likely that more will be on the way ahead of the upcoming Fortnitemares Halloween event.

Epic teases Midas’ return to Fortnite

Midas has been one of the biggest characters in Fortnite Chapter 2, but after his attempt to shake up the world in Season 2’s in-game event, he has completely disappeared from the battle royale.

While he was last seen being eaten by a shark in the Season 3 trailer, it seems the mysterious character could be set for a return in the upcoming Halloween event, with his golden chair now appearing in The Authority POI.
