Fortnite players have been destroying their opponents at Loot Lake by integrating the Flint-Knock Pistol to their arsenal for gravity-defying effects.
Epic Games gave the community a chance to create insane plays with the pirate pistol once again after unvaulting the weapon in the October 2 v10.40.1 patch. Players have since found amazing ways to reintegrate the gun in their Fortnite strats now that it’s in the wild.
But the game has changed considerably since the last time players had the Flint-Knock Pistol in their hands, creating new opportunities to obliterate the competition – especially at Loot Lake.
In this clip, Reddit user ‘fivepcchkn’ shows how effective the Flint pistol can be when fired at Loot Lake – which has zero-gravity properties after the mysterious floating orb exploded in Season 10.
Players should already be familiar with the Flint’s knock-back shot that can be used as a helpful jump backward. However, using that effect at Loot Lake’s low-gravity zone can create unique opportunities for creating chaos and easily making an escape.
Coupled with a Pump Shotgun, fivepcchkn was a force to be reckoned with at Loot Lake – using the pistol to find better angles, get the beat on unsuspecting players, and rapidly changing position in a close engagement.
On one shot, the player was able to shoot the ground with the pistol, sending them flying high up into the air. Shortly after, they switched to their shotgun to gracefully drop as they lined up a perfect shot to get a quick elimination.
Moments later, they found themselves floating down to the stage when they blasted someone with the Pump. Instead of landing on the ground to finish off the opponent, they pulled out the Flint to finish the kill, which sent them flying away to avoid a trade kill from a nearby opponent.
Finally, fivepcchkn was getting pinched by two players while in their 1×1 build, so the player got a little crafty as soon as their walls got busted.
By shooting at one player with the Flint, they actually zoomed past the player from the opposite direction. That gave them a clean hit with their Pump Shotgun which instantly deleted one of the players.
It seems there’s a lot of ways to trick opponents at Loot Lake using the Flint pistol if Fortnite players get a little creative with the weapon.
Fortnite leak teases return of Star Wars Lightsabers
The Star Wars Lightsabers could make a return to Fortnite in the near future according to a notable data miner.
A Fortnite data miner has reported that Epic Games readded the Star Wars Lightsabers into Fortnite’s files after the v19.10 update.
Fortnite has held quite a few Star Wars crossovers, but none as ambitious as the live event in Chapter 2 Season 1. This introduced Lightsaber’s into the loot pool for a short period of time.
They were also available for an even shorter period of time from May 2nd – 5th during Chapter 2 Season 2. Since then, players have eagerly awaited their return.
Now, a Fortnite data miner thinks Lightsabers could return to Fortnite sometime soon due to a change in the game’s files.
Lightsabers may return to Fortnite
Epic Games removes weapon and item data from the files when that item isn’t in use. And when the data is readded to the files, it’s a good indicator players will see their return soon.
Fortnite data miner FN_Assist recently discovered that the data for Lightsabers was added after the most recent update. In a tweet, FN_Assist outlines all of the data that was readded.
They claim that this could mean one of two things. Either Star Wars Lightsabers will return to Fortnite in the near future. Or Epic is working on a weapon based on the lightsaber’s pre-existing mechanics.
If Lightsabers are added to Fortnite, we can expect it to accompany a return of skins and maybe some other Star Wars announcement.
Epic Games usually adds crossover content to promote whoever they are collaborating with. Whether it be a new movie or TV series, the Lightsabers could be used as a promotional tool for new Star Wars content.

Fortnite: Where to find Pizza Party item and what it does
Fortnite Chapter 3 is adding a new Pizza Party item that allows players to restore their shields through the power of pizza.
If you’re wanting to switch up your diet in Fortnite, you can use the Pizza Party item to gain shield and fill your stomach.
One of Fortnite’s mascots is Tomatohead who is also the mascot for the fictional restaurant Pizza Pit. This is a POI that has appeared in Fortnite for several seasons.
It’s one of the many fictional restaurants that have appeared in-game along with Durrr Burger, Sitcks, and Butter Barn.
However, players haven’t been able to enjoy any of the food from these restaurants until now. Pizza Pit’s ovens are on and players can finally enjoy eight slices of cheesy goodness.
How to get Pizza Party item in Fortnite
The Pizza Party is a pizza box containing eight slices of pizza. In addition to cheese and sauce, each slice is topped with a Shield Mushroom that restores 50 shield.
Each box has 8 slices, but each slice can only get players up to 50 shield similar to minis. Players can find Pizza Party boxes in the normal loot pool.
As well, players can purchase a Pizza Box for 50 gold from the Tomatohead NPC. He is located in Tilted Tower, and he only has 4 Pizza Boxes in stock.
According to Hypex, the Pizza Party box will be added to Fortnite on Tuesday, January 25.
For a measly 200 gold, players can pick up 1,600 shield. However, we don’t know how long it takes to eat a slice. And this would also require players to give up two item slots.
