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.

Flare Guns and Portable Upgrade Benches were added in the 13.20 update.

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.

How to complete Quests in Fortnite Season 5: Challenges & rewards

With Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5, challenges are seemingly no more, at least in the form that they’ve taken for a while. Now, players are able to complete quests, which operate in a similar way but are a bit different nonetheless. Here’s what you need to know about them.

For a while now, players in Fortnite have been completing challenges in order to help level up their battle pass. These challenges tasked players with completing certain objectives around the map and, in return, they are given rewards, mostly XP. It ended up being one of the main ways players could grind up their battle pass tiers and overall level.

Now, with the start of Season 5 in Chapter 2, challenges are gone, at least in the form they once took. Now, players will have to complete Quests in order to level up their battle pass. But how do you complete them and what are the actual requirements? Here’s what you need to know.

What are Quests in Fortnite Season 5?

Quests can be found in its own menu on the left-side of the screen.

Jumping into Fortnite Season 5, one might be a bit confused as to what Quests are and why they’ve replaced challenges. While don’t know for sure why exactly they’ve taken the place of the latter, you can rest assured that they operate almost identically to the old format.

In Fortnite’s main menu, you should see a button to press on the left side labeled Quests. Clicking it will bring up the map and all your Quests, similar to how it’s been in previous seasons. That being said, these new “challenges” are a bit more narrative-focused, having quotes alongside them.

Chapter 2 Season 5 Quests list

Epic Games
Fortnite Quests are similar to challenges from previous seasons.

Quests are split up into different rarities. Everyone seems to have the two same Legendary Quests, alongside some rare and uncommon quests that are different from player to player. Once a quest is done, a new one pops up in its place, which presumably will keep happening until you’ve gone through every single challenge.

That being said, for the two Quests that everyone does have, here’s what you need to complete:

  • Mandalorian Bounties: Complete Bounties
  • Legendary Quests 1: Four Stages
    • Stage 1: Shotgun Eliminations
    • Stage 2: Assault Rifle Damage
    • Stage 3: Sniper Rifle Elimination from 150m
    • Stage 4: Deal Explosive damage to structures
  • Legendary Quests 2: Three Stages
    • Stage 1: Discover Named Locations
    • Stage 2: Talk to a character
    • Stage 3: Collect bars

New Quests should be available every week as the season goes on, much like the challenges of old. We’ll be updating this piece with new objectives as they become available.

All in all, it seems like Quests are a more refined version of challenges; gone is the long list of tasks and now we have a more organized experience. Here’s hoping that Epic continues with this style in the future.
