TSM CaMiLLs Discovers Crazy Flying Shopping Cart Glitch in Fortnite Battle Royale

Pro Fortnite player for Team SoloMid Juan “CaMiLLs” Camilla discovered an insane glitch with the newly added Shopping Cart in Fortnite Battle Royale – as it launched him and his teammate high in the air.

The shopping carts had been rumored to be on the way to the popular battle royale game for some time now, and were finally added with the v4.3.0 update on May 30th.

The new update also added consumable Mushrooms, which similar to the Apples added previously which grant +5 health, these fungi will give players a +5 shield boost.

But the shopping carts are likely the most game changing addition, being the first real ‘vehicle’ to be added – although players can’t actually move much faster than they would simply sprinting.

However, if this insane glitch found by CaMiLLs is anything to go by, these new shopping carts will be more useful than first impressions would suggest.

Playing with other popular streamers and YouTubers CDNThe3rd, RequiemSlaps and fellow TSM member “HighDistortion”, the team came across a very peculiar issue with building at the same time as riding a cart.

As RequiemSlaps rode the cart with CaMiLLs pushing, the duo built wood walls and ramps over the water section ‘Loot Lake’, the pair were suddenly were launched flying into the air.

It is unclear if this is a one off, or if it can be replicated by following CaMiLLs and his teammates approach.

If it can be, then these Shopping Carts could be used similarly to the Launch Pads – although with no option to open the glider players will have to careful not to die from fall damage.

Epic Games is usually quick to address all the bugs and glitches resulting from new items, so they are no doubt already on the case – meaning you may need to act fast if you want to try this out yourself.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
