SypherPK has proved that traps can still be a game-changer in Fortnite, after using them in a very strategic way to pick up an epic Victory Royale. 

The popular streamer, who creates content for Luminosity gaming, sealed a win by using the spike traps in a very creative way. 

There has been talk about how Epic Games potentially should look at introducing more traps into the game as the current ones have been around for quite some time, but SypherPK’s idea to create a trap tower just goes to show that they can still be as deadly as ever. 

Fortnite’s spike trap, if used creatively, can create some golden moments on Battle Royale.

The incredible play, which was posted to Reddit on January 13, shows a 1v1 on Fortnite at Titled Towers at the very end of the game. 

His opponent – Elite Agent [344] – tried to hide inside one of the buildings, but with the storm closing in on the pair, Sypher headed towards the bottom of a tall structure which has a jump pad placed at the bottom of it – something he prepared earlier. 

As he jumped inside the tower and landed in the top left corner at the top, to evade all of his traps, the player ran behind him in search of the victory. But, little did they know that the jump pad was going to fire them towards a whole tower’s worth of spikes. 

“I haven’t seen a kill like this in months” one Reddit user said, with another giving Sypher the title of “trap king” after this brilliant victory. 


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
