Twitch star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has shared a new Fortnite weapon exploit, that allows players to target their opponents without ever needing to reload, following the v13.20 update.

The recent 13.20 update brought even more changes to Fortnite’s Season 3, introducing new weapons and items such as the Flare Gun and Portable Upgrade Bench to the battle royale title.

However, it seems as if Epic Games also added an unintended exploit on June 30, which can allow players to maintain bullets in their weapon despite never hitting the reload button.

Popular streamer Tfue returned to Fortnite to test out the latest patch’s changes and broadcasted his efforts in the Trio Tournament alongside fellow pros scoped and innocents on July 1.

During his tournament run, one of his viewers highlighted a strange exploit that could take place when you drop weapons from your inventory in Fortnite.

“Someone said if you drop weapons it automatically reloads, I don’t believe that for a second,” Tfue responded, before his teammates confirmed that they had also heard of the glitch being possible in Season 3.

Although he was in a late-game situation when the comment came through, the streamer tried it for himself in the following match, when there were fewer opponents around to hear his shots.

To his surprise, the simple reload trick worked with ease and he then explained that it was broken, adding, “Yeah it works, that sh** is broken, I’m doing that all day. I’m never reloading.”

Despite Tfue finding it to be quite overpowered, his teammates, who both play on a controller, shared that the exploit might not work as well for them and other console players, highlighting the amount of time it takes to drop and pick up a weapon mid-fight.

Tfue followed up by claiming it was quite easy to pull off with the help of a mouse and keyboard and that PC players could have a slight advantage when utilizing this glitch in Fortnite.

It is still unclear whether Epic Games intended to add this feature, however, it is likely that it could be patched in one of the future updates.

The v14.30 update has finally been released for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and it has introduced some secret changes that Epic Games did not include in the latest set of patch notes.

Fortnite’s superhero-themed Season 4 is continuing to deliver fresh content, with even more characters like Daredevil soon to be released in-game, as part of the upcoming Marvel Knockout Super Series.

It seems as if he has finally been added to the Fortnite map after some eagle-eyed Fortnite fans discovered a change in the map’s skyline, with a bizarre red dot now visible after the 14.30 patch.

Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey revealed that the “distant object” in the sky was Galactus and that he was on his way to the Fortnite island ahead of his showdown with the Avengers and other Marvel characters.

New Black Panther Mythic Ability

Fortnite’s Season 4 also saw the introduction of new Mythic Abilities that players can equip in-game and the latest update, on October 13, added a Black Panther ability called “Kinetic Armor.”

The new power works similarly to the character’s suit in the popular Marvel movies, allowing players to absorb more damage, run faster, and even deal damage to nearby opponents and structures, after it has been activated.

Fortnite YouTuber SypherPK shared gameplay of Black Panther’s Kinetic Armor and revealed that it can be found in the Stark Industries Supply Drones that are scattered across different points-of-interest on the Fortnite map.

Fortnite Holly Hedges map changes

There were also some secret map changes that were not mentioned in Fortnite’s recent patch notes and the v14.30 update saw tweaks to the Superstore near the Holly Hedges POI.

With some Halloween-themed changes expected to arrive in Fortnite in the coming weeks, Epic Games has redecorated the landmark and renamed it the “Hey Boo Megastore.”

While this is one of the first Halloween-based changes so far, it is likely that more will be on the way ahead of the upcoming Fortnitemares Halloween event.

Epic teases Midas’ return to Fortnite

Midas has been one of the biggest characters in Fortnite Chapter 2, but after his attempt to shake up the world in Season 2’s in-game event, he has completely disappeared from the battle royale.

While he was last seen being eaten by a shark in the Season 3 trailer, it seems the mysterious character could be set for a return in the upcoming Halloween event, with his golden chair now appearing in The Authority POI.
