Epic have been fantastic with their vehicle additions to Fortnite Chapter 2. The boat and the helicopter are two of the most balanced vehicles that the game has ever seen.
That is, these vehicles are balanced when working correctly. We’ve seen a few glitches with both of them, early in their lifespan. The helicopter allowed you to fly above the storm to out-heal opponents for free wins and the boat pushed players under the map for a short time.
We have another glitch that appears to be affecting both vehicles, however. Both the Choppa and the Motorboat seem to be insta-killing – or, at least, significantly injuring – players who get too close.
This bug is most obvious with the Choppa, which has damaged and even eliminated players who happened to come in contact with it.
At least, the damage of the Choppa seems to be dealt in chunks, giving you a chance to react. MrFreshAsian ran into this bug during one of his recent challenge videos, although he had no idea what happened. He was able to get away before the helicopter ruined his video.

The Motorboat, on the other hand, seems to instantly kill players who touched it. You can take a look at the first part of this Reddit clip to see what we’re talking about.
In fact, this seems to be the bug that Tfue and Innocents encountered in one of their Cash Cup matches the other day.
We wrote an article about how all of the bugs in the game seem to target Tfue. Neither he nor Innocents had seen this bug before, but it seems to be related to the vehicle problem.
Don’t be surprised if Epic disable the vehicles over the weekend, while they work on a fix. In the meantime, make sure you keep your distance from vehicles that you don’t plan on piloting. If not, you could end up like one of the people in these clips.
Fortnite tournament canceled after game-breaking glitch goes viral
A game-breaking Fortnite duplication glitch went viral over the weekend, prompting DreamHack to cancel their open tournament.
DreamHack canceled their open tournament this weekend after Fortnite players find a game-breaking duplication glitch.
Fortnite is no stranger to game-breaking glitches and exploits. Most of the time, it takes a fair bit of effort to pull off the exploits. This isn’t the case in a glitch that went viral over the weekend.
Players recently stumbled upon a duplication glitch that was troublingly easy to perform – so easy, in fact, that multiple players discovered it by mistake.
To complete the glitch, all you need to do is have a full inventory. After that, you just have to throw a consumable item while picking up another item from the ground. This will duplicate the item you throw, and you can do it as many times as you want.
We’re not sure when this glitch first made it into Fortnite, but the first round of players who discover such an exploit usually don’t talk about it. It’s safe to say that this has been possible for at least a week in Fortnite Season 6.
DreamHack, who were hosting an open tournament this weekend, decided to reschedule; citing, “tournament integrity concerns.” As this was an open, remote tournament, it would be impossible to make sure no players ever abused this glitch.
At the end of the day, it’s better that everyone knows about a glitch like this rather than only a handful. Epic will undoubtedly do something about it in the next patch. If it didn’t go viral, they may never have found out.
Crazy Fortnite door exploit sends players flying
A new exploit has been found in Fortnite Season 6, giving players the ultimate mobility with a simple door edit.
Players have found a new rotation exploit in Fortnite Season 6 that has them flying across the map. Here’s how to do it.
Fortnite has always been prone to exploits – some more broken than others. Most players will remember that sand tunneling was disabled for the bulk of Fortnite Season 5 due to an exploit that made players invisible.
Season 6 is no exception. Players have already found a way to farm unlimited Gold Bars if you don’t care too much about your stats. You can even keep your health ticking up for an entire match if you have a friend by your side for another exploit.
This time, players have found a way to combine rotational items like chickens, Hop Rock Dualies, and Easter Eggs with a simple door edit to send them flying across the map.
Fortnite Door edit exploit
As you can see from the video above, the door exploit is simple. All you need to do is have a low-gravity item like a chicken, Hop Rock Dualies, or Easter Egg. After that, you just need to edit a door, open it, jump on top, and close it.
The one caveat to this exploit is that you have to make sure you’re facing in the right direction. The door will send you flying away from the direction that it’s facing, so make sure you angle yourself correctly.
SypherPK covered this strategy in a recent video, testing all of the different mobility items in the game. As he said, the exploit seems to work better with female characters than it does with male characters.
The Easter Egg in Fortnite is a seasonal item, and will probably leave the game next week. The removal of this item will make the exploit far less common, as you will only be able to use Hop Fish, Exotic Dualies, or a chicken.
This exploit is on the fence of being problematic. It probably won’t ruin the game for people, but is undoubtedly unintended. We’ll have to see if Epic take action on this one.
Fortnite Season 6 unlimited health glitch revealed
Fortnite YouTuber, OrangeGuy, has found a Season 6 exploit that allows players to gain unlimited health. Here’s how to do it.
Fortnite Season 6 has only been out for a week, but players have already found a way to continually generate health throughout an entire match.
Fortnite is no stranger to glitches. The past two seasons saw players learn how to make cars fly and turn themselves invisible. In fact, the Sand Tunneling feature of Season 5 was disabled for about half of the season due to a popular glitch.
It shouldn’t be a surprise, then, to learn that players have already found a few glitches in Season 6. OrangeGuy, a popular Fortnite YouTuber, revealed an unlimited gold exploit at the beginning of the season. Now, he has one that will give you unlimited health.
Fortnite Season 6 unlimited health glitch
The Fortnite Season 6 unlimited health glitch is surprisingly easy. First, you’ll need to grab some Slurp Mushrooms from the wild, a produce box, or from the garden in Slurpy Swamp (as shown in the video).
You’ll also need a friend to help you complete the glitch. All you need to do is hit a Port-A-Potty to one-shot, eat a Mushroom, jump inside, and have your partner break the Port-A-Potty. The timing has to be perfect, but there are plenty of opportunities to pull it off.
This glitch isn’t game-breaking, necessarily, but it gives you an unlimited pool of health. Opponents won’t even be able to tell what you’re doing, as they’ll assume that you have some sort of healing item in your inventory.
With this exploit, you can completely negate the need to carry any healing items with you. All you’ll need is some shields to top-off and you’re good to go.
Once this exploit is on Epic’s radar, we expect them to remove Slurp Mushrooms or Port-A-Potties while they work on a fix. You might as well use it while you can.
