Potentially game breaking sniper exploit discovered in Fortnite

Fortnite players have started noticing a major glitch in the game, allowing snipers to be shot through the cracks in brick builds – something which could be seriously exploited.

When building a brick wall, by editing a ‘window’ slot in the center square, it glitches allowing the cracks in the brick to be shot through.

As can be seen in the video below, the wall gives ample cover while also allowing the player within it to shoot through the small gap between bricks.

It’s not a perfect exploit however, as it also makes the wall penetrable from the outside, meaning the wall is in fact less effective cover once a window is built in it.

TSM player Daequan discovered this live on stream, which is perhaps how this exploit has gained attention.

The glitch should get patched quickly with Epic Games usually on top of these kind of exploits and always monitoring social channels, but it may not be fixed until the next big update.

It is most effective with snipers especially, as demonstrated by Daequan, and so players with an accurate shot hiding behind a brick wall could be a real annoyance until fixed.

For now, though, just make sure you keep a keen eye on any brick walls with windows edited in, as there could be someone lurking behind.

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
