The teams of Av/Chap and Tfue/Scoped are at each other’s throats ahead of the Heat 1 matchup in the FNCS Finals.

Fortnite has had a competitive scene since the game catapulted to number-one on Twitch. Keemstar and UMG Gaming seized the opportunity and created Friday Fortnite, which helped launch the careers of people like SypherPK, Tfue, Cloakzy, and even NickMercs.

We’ve come a long way since then, and the professional community has gone through some drastic changes. Now, people like Nate Hill, Funk, Chap, and Tfue are some of the only OG competitive players left standing.

The latter two, Chap and Tfue, and revitalizing excitement for competitive Fortnite through their rivalry. The teams of Tfue/Scoped and Chap/Av are both landing at The Grotto and neither one of them is blinking. They’re on a crash course for the FNCS finals, and all eyes will be on heat one.

The rivalry started during the FNCS qualifiers but has spilled over into pro scrims and Cash Cups. Chap and Av got the better of Tfue and Scoped in the last FNCS competition, but have been having a rough time, since then.

Things came to a head between the two during a Daily Cash Cup, where Chap and Av repeatedly contested Tfue and Scoped at The Grotto.

Before all of this, the rivalry seemed to be relatively civil. Both streamers were benefiting off of the attention – Chap even put the Tfue battle in his title.

Apparently, as you’ll see in the video, Chap took exception to a Tfue retweet that accused Chap and Av of teaming with another Grotto team to eliminate Tfue and Scoped.

“That guy was friends with a lot of people he screwed over,” Chap said in response to a viewer who said that he and Tfue used to be friends. “I basically stopped liking him the second he was dumb enough to retweet a tweet saying that I was teaming and should get banned.”

“There’s 0% chance I leave Grotto,” Chap continued. “Worst-case scenario, I just play to full-grief, you know? Just go next FNCS.”

“Ya, for real, f**k Chap,” Tfue fired back. “Why the f**k are those guys griefing our Cash Cup? Like, F**k off. They suck.”

Things are certainly heating up on the rivalry front. Chap appears to be getting personal, while Tfue remains focused on in-game trash talk.

We might be entering the “no love lost” portion of the rivalry. All of this seemed pretty lighthearted before yesterday. Now, it seems like they’re out for blood. Chap even retweeted an UnknownxArmy Tweet – calling out Tfue for switching accounts to reset his Cash Cup progress.

We don’t know for sure, but early reports have it that both teams are in heat 1 of the FNCS Finals. Chap has mentioned it on-stream and both Tfue and Scoped have confirmed that they’re in the first heat.

All eyes will be on them tomorrow afternoon. We don’t need an official cast for this one. We’ll be watching Tfue, Scoped, Chap, and Av.

Glitches

How to enter the Stark Industries Vault without a keycard

Fortnite players have found an exploit that allows them to enter the Stark Industries vault without a keycard.

The first update of Fortnite Season 4 included a massive overhaul of almost the entire northeast portion of the map. Stark Industries has now become one of the most popular places to land, with nearly a quarter of the lobby chasing Iron Man at the beginning of each match.

It’s easy to understand why this location is so popular. Stark Industries offers a ton of loot, a chance for an early battle, the only place to obtain high-level Stark Rifles, the Iron Man hero abilities, and a vault.

We’re focusing on the vault, for this article. It’s one of only two closed vaults on the map, but that doesn’t mean that you need a keycard to enter. More than a few players have eliminated Iron Man and hit the vault, only to find a squad of players already inside.

The reason for this is a video made by popular YouTuber and glitch exposer Glitch King. He offered a video tutorial on how to enter the Stark Industries vault without a keycard.

A glitch like this one has been possible in every season since vaults first came to Fortnite. The good thing was that most of these glitches took so long to complete that they were nearly impossible to pull off in a real game. You’d have to build walls and cones, get a boat, and spam buttons to enter the vault.

This one, however, is troublingly easy. All you need to do is hit the back of the vault at the proper angle with one of the many cars that spawn in the Stark Industries parking lot. Simply land, grab a car, drive it under the stairs and hop into the vault.

There’s a small catch to this glitch, however. One of the requirements is a bad PC – or, at least, a friend with a bad PC. Part of the glitch requires the driver’s PC to fail to render the walls of the vault, pushing you inside.

Admittedly, Glitch King makes the exploit look easier than it is. You probably won’t get it on your first try, but there’s nothing stopping players from practicing this glitch in Battle Lab. Once you find the right angle, you’ll get in every time.

Of course, you’ll be stuck inside the vault until someone else opens it, but that isn’t much of a problem. The Stark Industries vault almost never goes unopened, so chances are you’ll be able to loot the vault and kill whoever opens the door for you.

This is a pretty broken exploit, so we hope Epic address it in a coming update. The longer it’s in the game, the more players will try it. For now, all we can advise is to be careful when opening the Stark Industries vault.

Leak

New Fortnite Battle Bus “Upgrade” leaked

Tony Stark is improving the Fortnite Battle Bus. Take a look at the leaked first version of the upgrade.

Published

Fortnite Season 4 is finally giving players a taste of what it was like to play the game in Chapter 1. The updates aren’t coming at the same rapid clip as they were during the last chapter, but they’re steadily changing the game by adding new content every couple of weeks.

Yesterday’s update was a perfect example of this. It wasn’t as big as v14.10, which brought Stark Industries to the game, but it made significant changes in key areas of the map. The update also released Wolverine, who is the toughest boss that Fortnite has ever seen.

The map is progressively changing over the course of the season and we haven’t seen the last alteration. In fact, the map isn’t the only part of Fortnite that’s set for an overhaul as the season progresses.

Players who have had a chance to breathe in Stark Industries have noticed that Tony Stark appears to be making alterations to the Battle Bus. You can find one of the busses in his garage. It seems as though Stark wasn’t content with the plain old bus we’ve had since the early days of Fortnite.

Thanks to data miners, we already know how the upgraded Battle Bus will look when Tony Stark is finished with his first round of alterations.

There isn’t too much of a difference with this first stage, but we don’t expect Stark to stop there. By the end of the season, there’s a strong chance that the Battle Bus has its very own Iron Bus suit.

As you can see, the sound of the bus is also changing. It appears as though Stark is focusing on the performance of the bus before moving onto the cosmetics.

One interesting question that we have is: will this affect the speed of the bus? We assume that a more powerful engine would allow the bus to hit higher speeds. The speed probably won’t change due to game mechanics, but anything’s possible!

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about Tony Stark’s plan for the Battle Bus. We can expect to see this version of the bus come to Fortnite within the next two weeks.

Coral Castle in Fortnite

Fortnite Season 4 Week 5 is here, marking the halfway point in the season and, for many, the Battle Pass. Tier 100 and Tony Stark are only a few weeks away as long as you complete all of your weekly challenges.

For Week 5, we’re back to searching for floating rings in named POIs. We’re going to Coral Castle this time around, which was introduced towards the end of last season. Coral Castle isn’t a very popular POI most of the time, but it will be getting a lot more action when the Week 5 challenges come to the game.

Below is a map of the location along with all of the floating rings that you need to complete the challenge.

It would be best to complete this one in Team Rumble – which is disabled at the time of writing – but there’s a 50% chance that you get an unfavorable bus. Even still, you could probably stretch your landing and make it to one or two rings before being eliminated by the enemy team.

You can take a look at the rest of the challenges here. If you’re still looking for the Transport Truck for the Wolverine challenge, you can find that here. Happy hunting!
