TNT Bundle item coming to Fortnite Battle Royale according to leaks

Following the v6.30 update to Fortnite, data miners have discovered new game files indicating that a new item will be coming soon, named ‘TNT Bundle’.

As with every major Fortnite update, new secrets are often uncovered by data miners who dig through the game files for any new additions.

After v6.30, assets were discovered for an item named ‘T-T-Icon-BR-TNT-Bundle-L’, a new explosive weapon that will presumably function similarly to the recently vaulted C4.

There is currently no shortage of other explosive weapons in Fortnite though, so the news of this TNT possibly being added will not please all players.

Although there are no details yet, the TNT will likely be throwable or placeable, and would deal serious damage to structures.

With the C4 vaulted so recently though, it begs the question why the developers would vault an item only to add something so similar, so perhaps this TNT Bundle will function completely differently.

Of course this is just a leak from the game files, so there is nothing official yet. It’s possible that this TNT Bundle is still very much a work in progress, and may never see the light of day in game.

If it does operate like the remote explosives, their would be significant backlash from the community, much of which was vocally against such items in the past.

Epic Games never fails to surprise however, for better or for worse, so whatever the intention of this TNT Bundle is, it would be an intriguing addition.

Fortnite Season 5 now has a new teleporting feature thanks to the new Zero Point Crystals, and SypherPK has shared some must-know tips to help you master it.

As one of the most popular Fortnite content creators, many players look to SypherPK to offer advice and tips on how to master Epic’s online multiplayer battle royale – and he’s delivered once again with advice on making the most of the new teleport ability.

One of the biggest map changes in the game’s Season 5 update was the introduction of a new crystalline sands area right in the middle of the action. As well as letting players sink and hide, the area brings a new item called Zero Point Crystals.

During his December 3 video, SypherPK argued that “everyone is sleeping on the Zero Point Crystals” and offered up several reasons why they can actually be one of the most useful items to collect in Fortnite Season 5.

He explained that if you destroy crystals near the Zero Point and consume the small parts that scatter, you can perform a crystal-dash that lets you effectively teleport a short distance in any direction – even upwards if you need to get some height.

The crystal-dash is performed by double jumping and facing the direction you want to travel. Once you’ve consumed a crystal, you’ll have the ability for 30 seconds. It might seem like a small thing, but it could be a game-changer for getting out of tricky situations.

“If you really master the movement of the crystals, you can be very difficult to pin down and you don’t even have to build,” SypherPK explains in his video. “You can just be constantly flying around your opponent.”

While you can’t use the crystal-dash to move through solid surfaces or buildings, SypherPK discovered an exploit that lets you teleport through even a tiny gap in another player’s builds and dive into their box. It’s tricky to pull off, but rewarding when it works.

“You just fly into their builds, and once you get the timing right, it’s actually not that hard to repeat over and over,” he said. “You just gotta get the timing right.”
