Fortnite cheaters are ruining Fortnite scrims and custom games

Fortnite custom games and scrimmages seem to be the biggest target for some cheaters.

The issue of cheating in Fortnite has jumped to the forefront of topics since the Season 3 FNCS began. For some reason, it seems like an influx of cheaters has entered the game. Is it timing? Have a newer, undetected cheat popped up? We can’t know for sure.

When we completed our interview with a Fortnite cheat developer a couple of weeks ago, he assured us that his is one of the only cheats to make it past the Fortnite anti-cheat. Since then, we’ve seen several players be exposed – even expose themselves – for using cheats in Fortnite. These cheats were, reportedly, not from the same source. It would appear as though there are more ways than one to get past this anti-cheat.

There are some instances of players cheating in competitive Fortnite, but the largest pool of victims are those who want to enjoy a custom game or scrimmage. Cheaters are griefing these lobbies and aren’t even trying to hide it.

No-skin cheaters are running around with a Hunting Rifle and eliminating entire lobbies. They’re sacrificing accounts – knowing that these clips will get them banned – just to watch people freak out.

The issue isn’t that they’re cheating, however – it’s that the anti-cheat isn’t catching them. This is as obvious as you can make it, and it still gets through the anti-cheat. We have to assume that these players were banned after the clips surfaced, but what about someone who hides their hacks more carefully?

Epic have been silent on the issue of cheaters making it through their anti-cheat system. We reached out for comment back when Bman was exposed for cheating in the Bugha Cup, but never heard back. We’re sure that the anti-cheat team is taking the issue seriously, but the silence indicates that they don’t have any leads.

For now, Epic appears to be relying on player reports to find cheaters, which can be inherently flawed, as we saw in the Dubs situation. Just because something looks fishy,doesn’t mean a player is cheating. Hopefully, all of this gets cleared up soon and no cheaters made it into the FNCS Finals. If they did, we should find out this weekend – with the community so hyper-aware.

How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.

Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

XP Coins have returned to Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to find all of them as of Season 5 Week 7.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
