You can fly with the new Quadcrasher vehicle in Fortnite

The brand new Quadcrasher vehicle added to Fortnite in the latest update, v6.10, might surprise you, as it is more than just a land vehicle.

The official description for the Quadcrasher provided by Epic Games – “Propel yourself and a friend into battle with this new two-seater vehicle” – doesn’t give much away.

But, when they say ‘propel’, they mean it quite literally, as you can launch yourself (and a friend) high into the air with this insane looking vehicle.

With a large powerful thruster fitted to the rear end, the Quadcrusher can take off like a jet engine, and if you find yourself a small ramp or hill, you can get some serious airtime.

And just like the ATK (Golf Buggy), you will also get high scores depending on how impressive your jump was, measuring distance and flair.

Team Liquid’s Chap was one of the first Fortnite players to test out the new Quadcrusher, and used both it’s back thruster and front ram to soar out of Tomato Temple.

In fact, you don’t even really need a ramp to pull off a crazy jump with the Quadcrasher, as the thruster mechanic will simply launch you into the air no matter what, as Chap again found out.

This time he rolled off the edge of Dusty Divot, thrust mid fall, and was sent spinning back in the direction from whence he came.

Of course, the main purpose of the Quadcrusher is to actually crush, and it is pretty good at that too.

By simply ramming any wall or structure with this thing will tear it down, which will be useful for making escapes as well as taking down enemy builds.

It’s not clear just yet how often the Quadcrasher spawns, or every location to find it on the map, but if you see one you will most definitely want to give it a shot.

It is easily the most useful vehicle so far, providing some functional utility other than simply faster travel, unlike the Shopping Carts or ATK.


Has LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
