A reddit user has discovered a way to survive a Clinger Grenade’s sticky doom in Fortnite Battle Royale – even without shields.

Back in April 2018, Epic Games released a new form of explosive weapon to Fortnite Battle Royale – the Clinger Grenade. This grenade has been used more recently in the Fortnite meta as a way of rushing the enemy – a lot of players throw three grenades at another player to try stick it to them.

It’s known that if you get stuck by a clinger, and have no shield – it’s instant death. However, a Reddit user by the name of u/mrCodebot has discovered a way of not taking any damage from the death sentence of a Clinger Grenade.

As you can see in the clip, Entity gets stuck by a Clinger Grenade – and in a panic of movements, he places a pyramid and crouches in a corner to separate the grenade from his playermodel – therefore making it useless.

We don’t know yet if Entity actually intended this, but the way that he moves certainly suggests that he knew what he was doing. If this is something that players can be doing competitively, we might be seeing Epic Games patch it soon.
