This Fortnite exploit will get you into bot lobbies every time

Want to play against some Fortnite bots for a free win? Here’s how.

Skill-based matchmaking is a primary complaint of a lot of Fortnite players. Many of us have been playing since the game first came out, which means our skill-based matchmaking lobbies are far more difficult than the old-school Fortnite matches.

It’s to the point where a lot of people would rather play with an unskilled friend than someone who’s much better than them, just for a chance to get into an easier match.

Unfortunately, skill-based matchmaking is probably here to stay. Epic want new players to have a good time, which means they don’t want sweaty soccer skins to trap them in a box and make them want to quit.

There is a way to get into bot lobbies by yourself, however. Data miner iFireMonkey made a video on the topic. All you have to do is create a new account on your phone, invite that account to the game (from your main account), and leave with your bot account.

You won’t want to keep playing with your bot account if you want this exploit to work. If you log games with a secondary account, it will take you out of the bot lobbies

Will winning one of these matches give you any satisfaction? Probably not – especially if you’re skilled at the game. These are lobbies you’ll roll through. You’ll probably even win without doing anything, as the storm kills most of the final bots.

After playing in genuine bot lobbies with a friend who is brand new to the game, I can tell you that they get old, fast. It doesn’t feel good to win a game full of bots after 2+ years of experience playing Fortnite.

Still, it’s fun to play Fortnite God every now and then. You can even level-up your bot account a bit so the lobbies populate with real, unskilled players. If you’re looking to take it easy in a Fortnite bot lobby, now you know how.

This Crash Pad trick gives players free kills in competitive Fortnite

Another Fortnite Crash Pad technique has reared its head.

Published

on

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Crash Pads are the most useful item in Fortnite. You can combine them with Bouncers for ultimate mobility, use them to get into an opponent’s box, save yourself from fall damage, and – as it turns out – even more.

Just when we think that we’ve discovered all of the uses for Crash Pads, another one pops up. This new strategy is growing in popularity within the competitive Fortnite community, but is still under-utilized at the time of writing. Naturally, World Cup winner Bugha is on the cutting edge of the trick.

If you didn’t catch the strategy from the clip above, players are using Crash Pads to assassinate players above them in a stacked end-game lobby. All you need to do is make a hole in your structure, build a ramp, and throw a Crash Pad.

One of the players above you will, more than likely, fall through the broken floor and right into your lap. It’s a free refresh for your team.

This is a relatively high-level play, so you don’t need to worry about it if you’re only playing public matches. If you’re preparing for the Season 4 Trios FNCS, however, you should practice the technique and be aware that it might happen to you.

Players routinely find themselves stacked on top of one another in competitive Fortnite. I’d be surprised if we don’t see one or two of these plays in the FNCS Finals this season.

Where to find Wolverine in Fortnite

Having a hard time finding Wolverine in Fortnite? These tips will help you find and eliminate him.

Published

In the v14.20 update, Epic added the latest boss to Fortnite: Wolverine. Wolverine also happens to be the unlockable skin for the season, but we’re still a week away from unlocking him.

Next week, when Wolverine becomes available, we’ll need to track him down in-game and secure an elimination. As anyone who has gone searching for Wolverine knows, this is going to be tough.

Epic did something interesting with Wolverine. Instead of tying the new boss to a specific location, they gave him a massive spawn radius and allowed him to roam the map, freely. On top of that, killing Wolverine is extremely challenging. He can self-heal and even revive himself, making him the most dangerous boss that Fortnite has ever seen.

As we said, finding Wolverine is a challenge within itself. We know that he spawns in Weeping Woods, but that’s a huge area. This isn’t like the two locations where Iron Man and Doctor Doom can spawn. Wolverine can begin his journey anywhere within the trees of Weeping Woods.

Wolverine’s wander distance makes it even more difficult to locate him. You might land in Weeping with the intention of finding Wolverine, but once you have enough loot to take him on, he’s already made it halfway to Slurpy Swamp.

YouTuber Tabor Hill released a video with some helpful tips on how to find Wolverine – the most useful of which involves turning on the “visual sounds” setting that shows footsteps on your screen and flying over Weeping Woods in a helicopter. This way, you can see when there are footsteps beneath you and take on Wolverine from the air.

Despite knowing Wolverine’s general spawn location and the best way to find him, there’s no easy way to tell you how to have a 100% success rate in a public match. Tabor Hill is able to locate him, but the YouTuber is in a private game without any enemies. It’s going to be a lot harder when you do this in Solos – especially considering how lethal Wolverine can be.

We’ll keep you posted if anyone finds a more reliable method of finding Wolverine in Weeping, but this is the best info that we have for now. Just remember to take him on at a distance. He can take you from 200 HP to 0 quite fast.

These Fortnite Crash Pad strategies let you steal walls every time

This Fortnite Crash Pad strategy subverts the expectation of most players, allowing you to secure the elimination.

Published

Crash Pads might be the most useful and versatile items that Epic have ever added to Fortnite. When they were first introduced into core modes, players mostly used them for mobility and to avoid fall damage. When they came to competitive, though, players found about a dozen new uses for them.

One of the most common uses for Crash Pads is to jump into an opponent’s box. You can throw one down at your feet, breaking an opponent’s wall and sending you into their box. Any competitive Fortnite fan or player knows about this strategy all to well.

Since this is the most popular use of Crash Pads in competitive Fortnite, players are going to expect it. If a competent player sees a Crash Pad land in front of their wall, they’re going to expect their opponent to be in their face. There’s no sense in holding a wall when your opponent is already inside.

Reddit user u/TOMIGERINO came up with a couple of other strategies to take advantage of this meta. Instead of using the Crash Pad to jump into a box, he used it to take an opponent’s wall. This method is a lot safer, especially if you’re facing someone 1-on-1.

This strategy adds another layer to the chess match that is competitive Fortnite. Your opponent will expect you to jump into their box and will, likely, be looking for a shot rather than holding their walls. Bouncing the Crash Pad in these ways will allow you to stay on the outside, replace the wall, and finish the kill from a safe distance.

An opponent will probably be able to hold their walls against this strategy, but attempting to hold a wall is the wrong play most of the time. A smart player will know that there’s nothing they can do against someone who is Crash-Padding into their box. The point of this new strategy is that your opponent won’t see it coming.

Try this out in Creative Mode a few times to get the distance and timing down. This looks to be yet another wrinkle in the ever-evolving competitive Fortnite meta.
