Everything you need to know about Glitched Consumables in Fortnite

Published

on

The v10.10 Content Update brought with it the ‘Glitched Consumables’ which allow players to use a variety of items from past seasons.

Season X of Fortnite is all about the mixture of the present, the past, and the future. The v10.10 Content Update continues to follow this theme as players are greeted with new map changes like the Soccer Stadium.

In addition to the big obvious changes like the Junk Rift, Epic has also added the ‘Glitched Consumables.‘ While they might sound a bit intricate or worrisome at first, we can assure you that their quite a simple (but welcome) arrival.

What are Glitched Consumables in Season X?

Is it an Apple or a Mushroom…or a Hop Rock?

Glitched Consumables essentially collapse the ground-based health & shields like Apples into a single item spawn. As Season X follows a story where timelines are colliding, previous seasons’ collectibles are dropping into the current map.

Many of the consumable items like Coconuts and Apples are still available elsewhere, but the Glitched consumable also bring back old favorites. Hop Rocks, Peppers, and Shadow Stones have returned from the Vault to wreck havoc upon the world again!

Here’s a full list of the possible Glitched Consumable you can find:

  • Apples – 5 Health
  • Mushrooms – 5 Shield
  • Coconuts – 5 Health or Shield
  • Peppers – Increase player movement speed
  • Hop Rocks – Decrease the effects of gravity on the player
  • Shadow Stones – Turn into a shadowy figure for a short time with increase movement speed and dashes

Interestingly, these Glitched Consumable can only be found at the cratered indoor Soccer complex, west of Tilted Town.

Additionally, these items switch randomly between all the possible choices above. You’ll have to be quick in grabbing that Mushroom or it might turn into an Apple!

Shadow Stones disabled by Epic Games

If you were looking to use the Shadow Stones, we’ve got some bad news. Epic Games has disabled the Shadow Stones until further notice due to a…glitch.

Shortly after the v10.10 Content Update went live, Epic tweeted out that they needed to disable the item.

All other Glitched Consumable can still be found in-game.

We’ll be sure to update you once Epic Games has figured out the issue and Shadow Stones have been restored.

What do you think of the Glitched Consumables? We believe their a cool way to bring old mechanics back in a limited way. Hop Rocks were notoriously bothersome due to their abundance, but in smaller numbers they may prove to be good fun for all.

Fortnite v15.20 patch notes: Hop Rock Dualies, New & Unvaulted weapons

Epic Games have rolled out Fortnite patch v15.20, with a whole host of changes.

Fortnite v15.20 update pistols

Epic Games have rolled out Fortnite patch v15.20, with a whole host of changes. While official patch notes are hard to come by these days, we’ve rounded up all of the new content.

The last few weeks in Fortnite have went by without many big tweaks to the gameplay experience, and certainly a lack of new skins and cosmetics compared to times gone by.

However, a whole host of new outfits have been leaked and that’s just the tip of the iceberg for this weekly update. A new Predator crossover has also been uncovered by dataminers, meaning Predator could soon arrive in-game – with a new ship, banner, and spray leaked.

Those are, of course, unconfirmed changes though, so let’s take a look at everything we’re certain of.

Hop Rock Dualies

A new set of dual pistols have arrived in Fortnite, as seen below in a tweet from VastBlast.

New & Unvaulted weapons/items

There’s four new weapons and items coming into the loot pool (well, unvaulted as well) – seen below. This was also confirmed by VastBlast.

  • Legendary Tactical Assault Rifle
  • Rare Tactical Assault Rifle (All Rarities)
  • Lever Action Shotgun
  • Uncommon Snowy Flopper

At first, the leaker thought this Sawed Shotgun was going to be headed solely for Save the World, but it’s since been confirmed to be part of the update.

Pre-edit changes

Some adjustments have been made to the Pre-Edits Option. Now, with ‘Disable Pre-Edits On,’ all player-built structures can’t be edited until they’re placed.

Fortnite x Predator crossover leaked: First look at ship, spray & banner

Fortnite predator

Fortnite has been adding a number of hunters since The Mandalorian first landed on the island, and it looks like Predator might be next – if leaks are accurate.

The game has seen some insane crossovers in the last year or two, including those from the DC Comics, Marvel and Star Wars universes.

Well, next on that list might be one of the deadliest extraterrestrial attackers.

On January 13, following the v15.20 update, dataminer Lucas7Yoshi revealed a new ‘Nightmare Ship’ leak for Fortnite.

As you can see, this is the ship of Predator, from the movie series that started in 1987.

Fortnite Predator ship, spray & banner leaked

Not only that, but VastBlast has doubled down on that with a new spray leak, which clearly shows Predator is on the way in some shape or form.

Based on the arrival of Mando in his Star Wars ship, we can likely expect to see Predator join the action soon as a boss on the map – just like other NPCs that have been added during the season.

Once we have more information, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

The weekly update has shaken things up once again, so let’s take a look at all of the exciting skins and cosmetics to have leaked so far.

Fortnite v15.20 leaked skins

Confirmed by leaker Lucas7Yoshi, there’s three skins included in the patch. When they will be released, however, is unconfirmed at the time of writing.

Fortnite v15.20 leaked cosmetics

Aside from those three skins – named Ruby Shadows, Orin, and Tess – a plethora of cosmetics we’ve never seen before have been leaked as well.

Lucas7Yoshi revealed the following graphic just moments after the patch went live…

The dataminer also revealed, as seen in the tweet below, that two other gliders are heading into the game as well.

Two Bundles leaked

Last, but certainly not least, two skin bundles have also been uncovered by the dataminer – seen below.

These will be called the Tess bundle and MACHINIST MINA pack.

So, which skin will you be grabbing from this new set – or even cosmetic? Let us know!

If more are released by other leakers, we’ll be the first to let you know.
