Players have been using the Quadcrasher to pull off some amazing trick shots in Fortnite, but one player discovered an unintended feature with the vehicle as it can apparently also teleport players.

The clip begins with the player driving a Quadcrasher off a cliff with a teammate on the rear as they fly across using the vehicles jet before hitting and destroying a tree.

Instead of simply falling to the ground, though, the player who was driving is transported underneath the map.

The player is able to use their glider to slowly the fall before they reappear back on the regular map as if nothing had happened at all. 

Interestingly, the player was at Dusty Divot when they hit the tree, but underneath Salty Springs as they fell underneath the map, before returning to Dusty Divot yet again.

It’s not the first time the vehicle has sent players flying through the map, it’s also happened to several streamers, which means it’s probably a glitch we’ll see patched out soon.

This kind of impromptu teleportation probably isn’t what Epic intended to happen when the put the Quadcrasher into the game.

Nevertheless, it does provide some entertaining glitches and situations for players to encounter in the game.

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.

 

After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
