Reddit User Creates an Incredible Concept for a Long-Term Challenges System in Fortnite

The inclusion of weekly challenges in Fortnite: Battle Royale over the past few months has proven to be a highly successful move for developer Epic Games.

The challenges have given players another reason to play the game than just for wins, as well as a way to faster upgrade their Battle Pass tiers and unlock in-game content.

However, players have become tired of the repetitiveness that has stemmed from the game’s constant reuse of certain challenges, such as the ones that require the searching of chests in certain areas or the elimination of enemies with specific weapon types.

Thus, Reddit user ‘BM-Tweak’ has come up with the idea of adding longer term challenges to Fortnite that would be completed throughout an entire season rather than in a short period of time.

Some of the proposed challenges include total wins, total eliminations with certain weapons and/or tactical items, total resources harvested, and more.

The concept also shows that these challenges would be completed in tiers, and after each tier is fulfilled, the player would be awarded a special outfit skin, pickax, back bling, or emote.

In the greater picture, the implementation of long-term challenges would perfectly supplement the weekly challenges, as it would essentially force players to play games out rather than leaving after completing a short challenge.

This concept has gained so much positive feedback on Reddit that it would not be a major surprise if Epic Games were to actually add it to Fortnite, as they have proven not to shy away from using fan created ideas in the past.

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.
