Harry Kane has revealed the secret to the England football team’s current success at the World Cup and yes, you guessed it, it’s Fortnite Battle Royale!

“It’s coming home.” That’s the sentence that any English football fan will respond with if you ask them about England’s chances in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Now, thanks to Fortnite, that is looking more likely than ever before.

You might think that we’re over exaggerating this point, England is now through to the quarter-final stage of the biggest tournament in football for the first time in 12 years, and it’s happened with a squad that many pundits had doubts about.

In a recent interview with the BBC, the team’s captain, Harry Kane, revealed that him and the team are enjoying playing “more Fortnite than ever” while at the competition, and we believe the results speak for themselves!

The interviewer, Gabby Logan, asked Kane what he’s doing at the World Cup that he “really enjoys”, and the England skipper needed no time at all to answer:

“Playing Fortnite!

As silly as that sounds, it passed the time quite well, so there are quite a few of us just playing a few games of that.”

Kane goes on to state that his partner keeps saying that it feels like the team is “on a boys’ holiday” with everyone “just playing Fortnite” and he says he wants to “enjoy it while it lasts”!

It’s no secret that some of the England players are fans of Fortnite. Kane’s Tottenham Hostpur teammate, Dele Alli, has previously streamed his games on Twitch and both of them have played with Fortnite sensation Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins in the past.

England will face Sweden in the quarter-final stage of the World Cup on July 7th, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself losing a building battle to “hkane93” before that!

Fortnite invisibility glitch lets players cause absolute chaos

Fortnite players have got a new way to go invisible and troll their opponents, and it involves using the Mudflap truck. 

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded, and Epic Games has added plenty of new content to the battle royale, players have found more and more ways to get an advantage over their opponents – be it legitimately or by using glitches and exploits. 

In the past, these glitches have ranged from being able to use whatever skin you want, getting under the map, and being able to carry more items than normally allowed. 

There have also been God Mode and invisibility exploits too. While Epic has been pretty good at rooting those out, even disabling the items that help players use these glitches, there’s a new one they’ll have to get rid of.

The Mudflap truck is central to the new glitch.

The new invisibility glitch was pointed out by YouTuber GlitchKing who showed that it works similar to the invisibility glitch with the boat in seasons past. 

Players have to be knocked at the same time they’re entering a Mudflap truck, and then by doing so, are thrown underneath the truck while knocked. If they’re then picked up a teammate, they are invisible to everyone else in the lobby. 

Sometimes it doesn’t work as intended, obviously, as GlitchKing showed that his friend had attempted it a few times – once being throw under the map and another being eliminated altogether.

Obviously, when players are invisible, it’s impossible to get a read on their position. As GlitchKing demonstrated, he was able to cause havoc by damaging enemies who were clueless as to where he was. Though, he did give the game away by picking up knocked enemies.

Given that the glitch revolves around the Mudflap, Epic might have to disable the vehicle while they get things figured out, but as of writing, the problem hasn’t made its way to their Trello board so it remains to be seen as to whether or not they’re aware of it.
