After another long day of Fortnite action, another 33 players have advanced to the grand finals on Monday, September 3, and professional players dominate the rankings.

Sunday, September 2, will be the third and final day of qualification, before the top 33 players from each day move on to compete for a share of the $1.5 million prize pool.

It is Epic Games’ first open event, where players can simply show up at the venue and register to play, unlike their previous invitational events.

Sentinals player Owen “Animal” Wright took the top spot, only just edging out Ghost Gaming player ‘Aydan’ and Team Envy’s David “LeNian” Bois.

Two other Ghost Gaming players also made the top 16 – Rocco “SAF” Morales and ‘Bizzle’ both making it in.

Team Envy’s Myles “Gorilla” Cayene also made it through with an 18th place finish, and Team Liquid’s Jake “Poach” Brumleve also made it in.

Cloud9’s Jared “Bandit” Jones took the number 33 spot, edging out his C9 teammate Clemente “Shivsy” Ibarra, who misses out with his 34th place finish.

Day three of matches will begin on Sunday, as another three heats will take place before a final qualifier at night.

You can watch all the action via Fortnite’s Twitch, YouTube, Mixer, Facebook and Twitter, or of course if you are in PAX in person head to the venue – there is even a real life ‘Lazy Links’ mini-golf course.

SypherPK has already found quite a few tips, tricks, and glitches in Fortnite Season 5, but none are as hilarious as this one at Coral Castle that lets players ‘float’ in the air.

Fortnite Season 5 is well-polished, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t tricks and glitches that players can exploit. Game-breaking ones like being able to stay in the storm forever inevitably get patched.

However, smaller ones are more difficult to iron out, and nobody finds them better than Ali ‘SypherPk’ Hassan. He’s shared many crazy tips and tricks in the past. Now, he’s at it again with a glitch that lets players ‘float.’ He showed it off in a recent video, and the results are hilarious.

If you want to know how to do it, here’s a quick guide.

How to perform the ‘float’ glitch in Fortnite Season 5

To begin, you’ll need to make your way to Coral Castle. It’s not a popular landing spot by any means. SypherPK has only landed there about five times in total himself due to the lack of loot. However, the float glitch makes it more compelling.

Take note of what looks like a small pink pebble floating in the air. It’s difficult to spot at first, but once you’ve seen it in the video below, you’ll know what it is. Strangely, you can stand on it, even though it’s tiny.

Build your way up and perch yourself on top of the pebble. Then, knock all the platforms down and stay up there, which creates the illusion of floating. It’s no cheap gimmick, though. It’s an excellent spot to rain down some bullets on unsuspecting foes, even if it leaves you a bit vulnerable.

SypherPK managed to snag a bunch of eliminations while standing up there. He even managed to get a couple of early shots in and then swoop down on opponents while they were recovering.

SypherPK’s ‘float’ glitch probably won’t win you a game. However, it looks like a lot of fun and will likely help you secure some easy eliminations.

In the end, being innovative is a part of the game, and this glitch takes full advantage of that. 

Plus, imagine the look on your opponent’s face when they realize where they got shot from.
