As we’ve mentioned before, rapid updates tend to bring in bugs and glitches. The v9.30 Content Update is an excellent patch, but Wildcat has discovered a huge oversight on the part of Epic Games.
Alright, we’ve got some bad, yet inevitable news to share with you. The latest Fortnite update isn’t perfect and contains a rather distressing bug. At this point, none of these are really a surprise, but we wish they were.

Youtuber and streamer, Tyler ‘Wildcat‘ Wine, discovered a glitch during his initial hours with the new patch. Epic vaulted several annoying items with the update, but Rifts seem to want to stay no matter what.
Wildcat discovers Rifts are still in Fortnite
Epic Games removed Rift-to-Gos from the game with the newest patch, but they can still be obtained. The discovery was made by famous influencer, Wildcat.
Rifts may not appear in floor loot, chests, or supply drops, but you can still happen upon them with Vending Machines.
Purple Vending Machines still contain the Rifts within their loot pool. This means that a small percent of players can obtain these in matches. In fact, the bug creates an awkward scenario where the Rifts are more overpower than before.
Due to their increased rarity, Rifts will now serve as an unexpected and prized mobility method. Epic Games wanted to remove the Rifts from the game to promote active rotations and player controlled mobility, but a bit more testing would’ve helped tremendously.
This isn’t the first time that Epic has overlooked Vending Machines while patching. Unfortunately, Epic Games is taking a two week vacation and will not be able to fix this until after the break. A secondary Content Update is on the way, but according to Epic, this is a pre-scheduled push to live that doesn’t require manual labor.
By our estimates, you can expect to see the Rift truly removed around July 9th-12th or later as Epic returns to the studio. Until then, look out for purple Vending Machines…they now contain the rarest mobility item in Fortnite.
Fortnite tournament canceled after game-breaking glitch goes viral
A game-breaking Fortnite duplication glitch went viral over the weekend, prompting DreamHack to cancel their open tournament.
DreamHack canceled their open tournament this weekend after Fortnite players find a game-breaking duplication glitch.
Fortnite is no stranger to game-breaking glitches and exploits. Most of the time, it takes a fair bit of effort to pull off the exploits. This isn’t the case in a glitch that went viral over the weekend.
Players recently stumbled upon a duplication glitch that was troublingly easy to perform – so easy, in fact, that multiple players discovered it by mistake.
To complete the glitch, all you need to do is have a full inventory. After that, you just have to throw a consumable item while picking up another item from the ground. This will duplicate the item you throw, and you can do it as many times as you want.
We’re not sure when this glitch first made it into Fortnite, but the first round of players who discover such an exploit usually don’t talk about it. It’s safe to say that this has been possible for at least a week in Fortnite Season 6.
DreamHack, who were hosting an open tournament this weekend, decided to reschedule; citing, “tournament integrity concerns.” As this was an open, remote tournament, it would be impossible to make sure no players ever abused this glitch.
At the end of the day, it’s better that everyone knows about a glitch like this rather than only a handful. Epic will undoubtedly do something about it in the next patch. If it didn’t go viral, they may never have found out.
Crazy Fortnite door exploit sends players flying
A new exploit has been found in Fortnite Season 6, giving players the ultimate mobility with a simple door edit.
Players have found a new rotation exploit in Fortnite Season 6 that has them flying across the map. Here’s how to do it.
Fortnite has always been prone to exploits – some more broken than others. Most players will remember that sand tunneling was disabled for the bulk of Fortnite Season 5 due to an exploit that made players invisible.
Season 6 is no exception. Players have already found a way to farm unlimited Gold Bars if you don’t care too much about your stats. You can even keep your health ticking up for an entire match if you have a friend by your side for another exploit.
This time, players have found a way to combine rotational items like chickens, Hop Rock Dualies, and Easter Eggs with a simple door edit to send them flying across the map.
Fortnite Door edit exploit
As you can see from the video above, the door exploit is simple. All you need to do is have a low-gravity item like a chicken, Hop Rock Dualies, or Easter Egg. After that, you just need to edit a door, open it, jump on top, and close it.
The one caveat to this exploit is that you have to make sure you’re facing in the right direction. The door will send you flying away from the direction that it’s facing, so make sure you angle yourself correctly.
SypherPK covered this strategy in a recent video, testing all of the different mobility items in the game. As he said, the exploit seems to work better with female characters than it does with male characters.
The Easter Egg in Fortnite is a seasonal item, and will probably leave the game next week. The removal of this item will make the exploit far less common, as you will only be able to use Hop Fish, Exotic Dualies, or a chicken.
This exploit is on the fence of being problematic. It probably won’t ruin the game for people, but is undoubtedly unintended. We’ll have to see if Epic take action on this one.
Fortnite Season 6 unlimited health glitch revealed
Fortnite YouTuber, OrangeGuy, has found a Season 6 exploit that allows players to gain unlimited health. Here’s how to do it.
Fortnite Season 6 has only been out for a week, but players have already found a way to continually generate health throughout an entire match.
Fortnite is no stranger to glitches. The past two seasons saw players learn how to make cars fly and turn themselves invisible. In fact, the Sand Tunneling feature of Season 5 was disabled for about half of the season due to a popular glitch.
It shouldn’t be a surprise, then, to learn that players have already found a few glitches in Season 6. OrangeGuy, a popular Fortnite YouTuber, revealed an unlimited gold exploit at the beginning of the season. Now, he has one that will give you unlimited health.
Fortnite Season 6 unlimited health glitch
The Fortnite Season 6 unlimited health glitch is surprisingly easy. First, you’ll need to grab some Slurp Mushrooms from the wild, a produce box, or from the garden in Slurpy Swamp (as shown in the video).
You’ll also need a friend to help you complete the glitch. All you need to do is hit a Port-A-Potty to one-shot, eat a Mushroom, jump inside, and have your partner break the Port-A-Potty. The timing has to be perfect, but there are plenty of opportunities to pull it off.
This glitch isn’t game-breaking, necessarily, but it gives you an unlimited pool of health. Opponents won’t even be able to tell what you’re doing, as they’ll assume that you have some sort of healing item in your inventory.
With this exploit, you can completely negate the need to carry any healing items with you. All you’ll need is some shields to top-off and you’re good to go.
Once this exploit is on Epic’s radar, we expect them to remove Slurp Mushrooms or Port-A-Potties while they work on a fix. You might as well use it while you can.
