How to get a ‘Double Pump’ in Fortnite Season 5

The Dub, one of the new shotguns in Fortnite, has an interesting feature (or glitch) that removes the shotgun-switch delay.

Published

A new glitch or feature has been found in Fortnite season 5, allowing players to use the old “Double Pump” strategy from back in the day.

Fortnite Season 5 has introduced a couple of new shotguns into the game. The first is the Dragon’s Breath, which is widely considered the game’s weakest shotgun. It has nice features and deals decent damage, but the magazine size and reload speed hold it back.

The other new shotgun is a rework of an old classic. The Dub is a double-barrel shotgun with the knockback effect of a Flintknock Pistol.

The Dub has been a far rarer sight on the Fortnite battlefield because of its rarity. It’s one of the new Exotic weapons that require you to buy it from an NPC. It’s quite expensive, but players will likely begin to be able to afford it later in the season.

One thing that’s different with The Dub, however, is the shotgun cooldown timer that it has. For those who don’t know, this cooldown was added early in Chapter 1 to remove the “Double Pump” and “Pump-Tac” combinations.

This cooldown doesn’t seem to apply to The Dub. Players can use it alongside a Tac or Charge without worrying about any delay, as shown by YouTuber, OrangeGuy, below.

Later in the season, as Gold stashes begin to grow, we’ll probably see more and more players rocking The Dub and other Exotic weapons – especially if this feature or glitch remains in the game.

Now, we have the question of whether or not Epic intended this to be the case. We tend to think it’s not intentional, or else they would have given the Dragon’s Breath the same feature – making it far more viable.

It looks like we’ll have to wait and see if Epic address the problem. If they do, it was a bug. If they don’t, then the developers could be experimenting with this shotgun delay – which we think is a good thing.

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.

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are live. Here’s a guide to the most difficult challenge: collecting books from Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands.

Epic have been taking it easy on us this season, with only a handful of weekly challenges requiring us to search the map for specific items.

Unfortunately, the Season 5 Week 7 challenges include one of these, requiring you to collect books in Sweaty Sands and Holly Hedges. We did the leg work for you so you can get back to grabbing Victory Royales.

Fortnite Holly Hedges & Sweaty Sands book locations

There are three books in each location, but you only need to find five of them. Since Sweaty and Holly are near one another, you can easily complete this challenge in a single game of Team Rumble.

The book locations are as follows:

Holly Hedges

  • Ground floor of the yellow house in the northwest
  • The tall building in the southeast corner
  • The building in the northeast corner (dog house)

Sweaty Sands

  • The building next to the RV park
  • The bookshelf inside the tall apartment building
  • The building in the southeast corner

Again, Team Rumble is the best way to complete this challenge if you want to get it out of the way. Of course, you can always land at these locations in a normal match, but that’s only making it more difficult for yourself.

You can take a look at the full list of Season 5 Week 7 challenges here. We’ll be back next week with another guide to all of the weekly challenges.

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!
