You Can Break the Dusty Divot Meteor Using the Fortnite Shopping Cart

It looks like there are still some issues with the Shopping Carts in Fortnite Battle Royale as some players have accidentally broken the meteor in the middle of Dusty Divot.

The introduction of the Shopping Cart to Fortnite Battle Royale was not the smoothest in the game’s history as it came with numerous strange and spectacular bugs.

In typical Epic Games fashion, the developers quickly worked on fixing these bugs and seeing the likes of flying Shopping Carts quickly became a thing of memory.

However, it soon became apparent that some glitches had slipped through the cracks as one bug saw the Shopping Cart destroy the bunker doors in Wailing Woods and allow players to see what is inside.

The Shopping Cart destruction doesn’t end there, though. It turns out that the metal trolleys are also perfect for destroying the meteor in the middle of Dusty Divot! 

Reddit user toxicgiraffe posted a video of him and his squad breaking the meteor which, spoiler alert, seems to do nothing other than remove it completely.

Community members have often wondered what might be inside meteor but were left disappointed by the result of its destruction, much like with the Wailing Woods bunker.

Presumably the destruction of these objects is an unintentional use of the Shopping Carts, but with Fortnite Battle Royale there’s never any way of knowing for sure.

Perhaps this could all be part of some twisted master plan that none of us understand…

Or perhaps it’s just a weird glitch and thousands of players around the world are now going to spend their days testing the limits of the Shopping Cart’s destructive power.

Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
