NickMercs stunned by this Fortnite vault glitch

Fortnite has always been prone to exploits. Most long-time fans remember when Tfue was jumping through walls and shooting through doors back in the day. We’ve gone through ebbs and flows of glitches, with some being far more powerful than others.

Fortnite Season 2 introduced vaults to the game, which give players high-tier loot once they kill an NPC boss and clear an area. It didn’t take long before someone found a way to get into the vault without having a key.

There are a couple of ways to do this exploit – each specific to a different location. This one involves using a boat at the agency. All you have to do is build a boat into a box on top of the vault. Cap it off with a cone, which will push the boat down into the vault.

This glitch isn’t as useful as it looks. The only time you’d need to use it is if someone took off with the Agency vault key – and you could get stuck and lose the match.

The idea is to surprise an opponent, but setting this up will take too much time if someone else is in the area. This is something you might do once for a laugh, and then never do it again.

That is unless you’re trying to surprise a streamer like NickMercs. The FaZe Clan member was happily looting The Agency in a solo match when he encountered someone in the closed vault. It blew his mind.

Again, the glitch, itself, seems a bit too convoluted to be worth doing. All of the big chests appear to despawn when you glitch inside of the vault, and you could get stuck if no one lets you out.

Still, it made for a pretty hilarious clip. Hopefully, Nick was able to pick his jaw up off the floor and win the match.


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.

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are here. Take a look at how to complete all of them in this challenge guide.



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!
