The new Shadow Stones in Fortnite Battle Royale are seemingly allowing players to explore parts of the map that were previously inaccessible.
The new consumable type item gives players a new ability called ‘Phase,’ which allows them to propel in the direction they are facing and pass through walls and objects.
Twitch streamer ‘Teeqzy,’ who plays Fortnite competitively for Millenium, has used the Shadow Stones’ power to access the inside of one of the trucks in Fortnite.
The specific truck he managed to get inside of was the overturned one just outside of Dusty Divot, in front of the warehouse structures.
Interestingly enough, the interior of the cargo area of the truck is nothing spectacular. Its contents are empty and half of it is embedded within the ground, with shrubs and grass pointing through.
Regardless, it is still rather interesting to be able to access parts of the map that were impossible to get into before, even it if is something as simple as the inside of a truck.
It’s very likely that, as time passes by, more and more players will try to use this new ‘Phase’ ability of the Shadow Stones to try to explore the Fortnite map on a whole new level.
Epic Games could even go the unexpected route and start putting loot and chests in the interior of trucks, rewarding players who are smart and aware enough to check.
More on Shadow Stones
Shadow Stones are a new type of consumable item that were added in Fortnite on September 27 via the v6.0 update, kick-starting Season 6 in the popular battle royale title.
Found in ‘corrupted’ areas of the map, Shadow Stones temporarily apply ‘Shadow Form’ to players, allowing them to become invisible to enemies while stationary as well as gain increased movement speed, jump height, and fall damage immunity.
Additionally, players who consume the item gain a new ability called Phase, which can be activated by pressing the Primary Fire button. Phase allows players to propel forward in the direction they are facing, as well as pass through objects.
