TSM Myth and Dakotaz Want Changes Made to Shotguns in Fortnite After Recent Nerf

After shotguns were recently hit with a significant nerf in Fortnite Battle Royale, two of the top streamers and competitive players, TSM Myth and Dakotaz, want changes made.

Epic Games implemented a shotgun nerf in an attempt to rebalance the game away from the manic shotgun battles that typically dominated close quarters engagements.

Some were in favor of seeing a slight rebalance, but as is often the case with attempting to fine tune weapon balance, it often ends up tipping the scale too much in the other direction.

TSM player Ali “Myth” Kabbani called for an increased fire rate of the tactical shotguns, in order to make it a “contender” in the current meta.

Fellow streamer, Dakotaz, went into more detail on his channel, explaining that shotguns have become too weak, saying “everything is backwards.”

“Don’t nerf shotguns completely, because now they’re just garbage. Yes, they work sometimes, yes they still one shot people, and that will be Epic’s argument. But when? Like once in a blue moon.

If I land a headshot on somebody up close, with a shotgun, don’t you think I deserve to do a lot of damage and kill that guy. So everything is just backwards in Fortnite. That’s the best way to explain it, everything is backwards.”

Dakotaz goes on to express his disappointment that other personalities are “afraid to speak their minds”, and instead just say Epic Games are the best, without complaint.

Given the frequency at which Epic update the game, and how observant they are on all social channels, it is likely that at some point some more shotgun rebalancing will be made.

SypherPK has already found quite a few tips, tricks, and glitches in Fortnite Season 5, but none are as hilarious as this one at Coral Castle that lets players ‘float’ in the air.

Fortnite Season 5 is well-polished, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t tricks and glitches that players can exploit. Game-breaking ones like being able to stay in the storm forever inevitably get patched.

However, smaller ones are more difficult to iron out, and nobody finds them better than Ali ‘SypherPk’ Hassan. He’s shared many crazy tips and tricks in the past. Now, he’s at it again with a glitch that lets players ‘float.’ He showed it off in a recent video, and the results are hilarious.

If you want to know how to do it, here’s a quick guide.

How to perform the ‘float’ glitch in Fortnite Season 5

To begin, you’ll need to make your way to Coral Castle. It’s not a popular landing spot by any means. SypherPK has only landed there about five times in total himself due to the lack of loot. However, the float glitch makes it more compelling.

Take note of what looks like a small pink pebble floating in the air. It’s difficult to spot at first, but once you’ve seen it in the video below, you’ll know what it is. Strangely, you can stand on it, even though it’s tiny.

Build your way up and perch yourself on top of the pebble. Then, knock all the platforms down and stay up there, which creates the illusion of floating. It’s no cheap gimmick, though. It’s an excellent spot to rain down some bullets on unsuspecting foes, even if it leaves you a bit vulnerable.

SypherPK managed to snag a bunch of eliminations while standing up there. He even managed to get a couple of early shots in and then swoop down on opponents while they were recovering.

SypherPK’s ‘float’ glitch probably won’t win you a game. However, it looks like a lot of fun and will likely help you secure some easy eliminations.

In the end, being innovative is a part of the game, and this glitch takes full advantage of that. 

Plus, imagine the look on your opponent’s face when they realize where they got shot from.
