‘Trading’ has become more common in Fortnite Season 5

Players are reporting an increase in the frequency of ‘trading’ kills with enemies after the Fortnite Season 5 patch.

Fortnite Season 5 is one of the most interesting seasons in Chapter 2, but it isn’t without its flaws.

The new Fortnite season released on December 2, bringing fans a ton of new content to discover. We have NPCs, quests, bounties, a new currency, quicksand, new locations, and even more.

This might be the most unique season in this chapter, but it’s not without a few flaws. One of the most glaring issues has to do with a new bug causing players to become invincible after leaving the sand. You can learn more about that problem here.

Another bug has to do with trading – something that was always an extremely rare occurrence in Fortnite. Now, in Season 5, players seem to be trading more than ever. We even experienced it firsthand.

This change is one of those things where it’s tough to tell whether Epic meant to cause it or not. We can’t imagine why the change would be intentional, as trading with an enemy is extremely frustrating. There doesn’t seem to be a benefit to it.

After posting our clip, we saw other players report that they had been trading with enemies in Season 5, as well. Again, this was possible in the past, but it was infrequent. In our hundreds of hours of playtime, we have never had this happen to us – and we aren’t alone.

Hopefully, this is only a temporary bug, and Epic can fix it in the next update. However, it’s possible that “trading” is a result of something that Epic tweaked relating to player ping. If that’s the case, we could see a lot more clips that look like these.

Fortnite Armored Wall glitch lets players get 100,000 XP instantly

The poor state of XP in Fortnite Season 3 has compelled players to rely on glitches. Here’s one Armored Wall glitch that grants 100,000 XP.

Fortnite XP glitch

A glitch in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 allows loopers to place infinite Armored Walls. They can use this to complete the 20 stages of a milestone and get 100,000 XP.

Fortnite players have been struggling to level up their Battle Pass in Chapter 3 Season 3. As opposed to the previous few seasons, the current XP system isn’t rewarding at all.

Accordingly, it is common for loopers to exploit glitches and immediately get some XP. Even though XP glitches are usually found in Creative, a YouTuber has discovered a bug in the standard Battle Royale modes.

How to get 100,000 XP in Fortnite with infinite Armored Walls

There’s a spot near Sleepy Sound on the Chapter 3 Season 3 island where loopers can place Armored Walls endlessly. Before jumping to the details, readers must note that Armored Walls are only available in modes with building enabled.

YouTuber GKI visited the location in a recent video and confirmed the glitch. Players first need to break the rocks as well as the existing stone wall. Thereafter, they must place an Armored Wall.

As it turns out, the game won’t reduce the number of the Armored Walls in your inventory. GKI had five walls upon arrival and left the location with the same number (and a ton of free XP).

There’s an XP milestone in Chapter 3 Season 3 that requires players to ‘Hit Weakpoints’. While breaking structures with the harvesting tool, you will find a red circle with a white/blue border. This is the structure’s weak point and helps in breaking it more effeciently.

An Armored Wall in Fortnite has 2,500 HP and it takes over 10 weak point hits to break it. You simply need to aim towards the red marker and swing the pickaxe.

Hence, with infinite Armored Walls, the ‘Hit Weakpoints’ milestone can be completed effortlessly. It has 20 stages that grant 5,000 XP each, implying that the total XP output is 100,000.

Can you get banned for using XP glitches in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3?

Glitches have been common in Fortnite for a long time, and Chapter 3 Season 3 is no exception. While some glitches are game-breaking, others are basically harmless and can be exploited without ruining the experience of others.

XP glitches fall under the second category as players can use them for their own advantage without affecting anyone in the community. Accordingly, Epic Games has never banned anyone for doing them.

Having said that, it is safe to assume that the developers will patch the aforementioned glitch soon. Anyone who’s yet to complete the Hit Weakpoints milestone should visit Sleepy Sound quickly.

Fortnite glitch lets players fly by using the Armored Battle Bus

The Armored Battle Bus in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is broken not because of its turrets, but owing to a glitch that lets players fly.

Only two Armored Battle Buses spawn on the island in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, and here’s how players can use them to trigger a glitch that lets them fly.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has an abundance of glitches but luckily, none of them have been game-breaking so far. While some grant XP to level up the Battle Pass, others let players do unusual things like going under the map.

One such glitch allows loopers to literally fly and all you need is an Armored Battle Bus and a shark.

How to fly in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

Long story short, Armored Battle Buses and sharks do not go well together. As reported by u/ShadowOpsFN on the r/FortNiteBR subreddit, when a shark bites an Armored Battle Bus, the massive vehicle uncontrollably floats in the sky.

In a clip that already has thousands of likes, players can see that u/ShadowOpsFN encountered a shark in Logjam Lumberyard’s lake. The impact of the shark’s bite was as intense as it gets, and the looper reached almost reached the spawn island in just 15 seconds.

To try this glitch out, players must find an Armored Battle Bus that spawns near the Reality Tree or the Sanctuary beach.

The exact locations of the buses have been marked in the images below:

Unlike the Armored Battle buses, players won’t struggle a lot to find sharks. You can either visit Logjam Lumberyard’s lake like u/ShadowOpsFN or other water bodies such as Loot Lake.

Having said that, loopers should try the aforementioned glitch at their own risk. It is clearly broken and might lead to them losing the game.

Sharks and vehicles have been broken since the inception of Fortnite Chapter 3

Surprisingly, sharks have helped loopers in defying the laws of gravity for the past seven months. At the outset of Chapter 3, prominent creators discovered that vehicles such as trucks, taxis, motorboats, and even tanks cannot withstand shark bites.

Instead of taking damage, the vehicles launch toward the sky and roll in a wild manner. There are countless clips of players triggering this glitch, and Epic Games is yet to patch it.

It is evident that the developers have countless glitches to fix, and they’re currently prioritizing the ones that can affect the meta. For instance, the Dragon Rune Lance is no longer available in-game and Epic Games has disabled it temporarily.

Fortnite glitch lets players go under the map by using Indiana Jones’ boulders

Glitches have been frequent in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, and here’s one that will allow players to reach the Zero Point from underground.

Fortnite glitch takes players under the map

Fortnite players can now go under the Artemis map with an interesting glitch related to the Indiana Jones boulders and Whiplash vehicles.

Fortnite added boulders in Chapter 3 Season 3 as a reference to Indiana Jones. Loopers can commonly find them on cliffs and destroy their base which makes them roll down. The damage output of these boulders is enough to knock down opponents and damage vehicles.

However, a player used the boulders to trigger an unusual glitch and go underground in Fortnite.

Fortnite players can go underground in Chapter 3 Season 3 with a glitch

Apparently, if a boulder falls on a Whiplash, the vehicle loses a ton of HP and goes under the map for a second. Players who wish to remain under the map can exit the vehicle while it is underground.

It is impossible to try this glitch in Solos as one player must destroy the boulder’s base while a teammate has to place the Whiplash right under the falling rock.

The secret skin for Chapter 3 Season 3 is Indiana Jones which explains why boulders are spread all over the map. In Raider of the Lost Ark, there’s a scene in which the protagonist escapes with the golden idol and a boulder chases him.

Even though boulders do not have a significant impact on the meta, loopers love them. Accordingly, Fortnite has added them to Creative:

To find a Whiplash, players can either visit the gas station in Coney Crossroads or Chonker’s Speedway. However, the vehicles at the desert-themed POI are usually equipped with Off-Road Tires mod.

Zero Point in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is protected by invisible barriers

YouTuber GKI used the aforementioned glitch and went under the map near Tilted Towers. The creator comfortably swam through the OG location and reached Loot Lake. In an attempt to reach the Zero Point, he discovered the invisible barriers that stopped him from going any further.

The island seems to be peaceful at the moment as the Zero Point is stable under Loot Lake. However, leakers have revealed some unreleased ripple effects that hint toward some sort of impending trouble.

Loopers can try going under the map and investigate the Zero Point’s stability themselves. It is unlikely that Epic Games will patch this glitch quickly because far more severe and game-breaking XP glitches are gaining prevalence in Fortnite at the moment.
