Fortnite: Venom skin glitch is literally dangerous to look at – Sportskeeda

Fortnite has an excess of cosmetic skins. From pop culture icons to user-generated outfits, the game has a massive repository that can pander to the most scurpulous of players. Given the superfulity, it is plausible that some outfits can get glitched and malfunction.

Glitches are nothing new for Fortnite players. Since its launch in 2017, the game has been under constant development, which at times can trigger certain bugs and impair the proper functioning of a few features. While the majority of glitches are in the gameplay and are harmless, there are a few that can be dangerous.

A clip that numerates one such glitch is doing the rounds in the Fortnite community, and players are exploiting it for all the wrong reasons. It can be fatal to discount the fact that the glitch wouldn’t cause any harm. Readers are advised to interact with the embedded media with caution.


Fortnite Venom skin glitch can trigger photosensitive epilepsy

Recently, a YouTube-based Fortnite creator GKI made the community aware of a visual glitch that can prove fatal to a miniscule audience.The Extreme edit style of the Venom skin can trigger epilepsy in photosensitive players. Although the glitch is restricted to specific maps, it still imposes a threat and needs to be addressed immediately.

(Photosensitive trigger warning. Viewer discretion is advised.)

If players, equipped with the aforementioned outfit were to enter a Fortnite Creative map that has glow visual effects enabled, their outfit would turn very bright and start pulsating. Suddenly, different-hued bright lights will start emanating from the outfit and it will become an unidentified mass of brightly colored lights.

The glitch is not restricted to the users themselves as other players present on the map can also witness its effect. For others, the opponent with the outfit looks like a giant blob of bright lights that cannot be distinguished from the character. If compared, the glitch appears to be more detrimental to other players than the users themselves.

Although the outfit can trigger epilepsy, what the majority of players are concerned about is if this gitch makes the skin a pay-to-win cosmetic. The glitch does render the opponent almost camoflauged in bright lights that make it difficult to aim the hitboxes. Players should be mindful before using the outfit.

Photosenstive triggers are nothing new in gaming. The majority of video games come with a trigger warning. The developers include a warning message before the game boots up, and even provide for visual adjustments to minimize any incident. Although it is majorly done to indemnify the developers, it is still an efficient preventive action.


More about the Venom skin in Fortnite

Introduced in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4, the Venom outfit is part of the Marvel series. Available for 2000 V-bucks, the skin was last seen in the item shop on August 12, 2022.

This particular outfit was broken in the past as well. A few months back, any player equipped with the Venom outfit would become invisible for a few seconds while emoting.

While photosensitive triggers are not a common occurrence, there have been instances in the past where players have faced such issues. Epic Games developers are very proactive when it comes to situations that can be hazardous to players, and it is expected that this bug will get patched soon.

Fortnite: Where to Find Impulse Grenades – The Nerd Stash

Fortnite is a big fan of vaulting and unvaulting various items and weapons, and it’s hard to blame them. While it can take away some fan favorites which is obviously quite upsetting, the constantly changing loot pool keeps things fresh and ensures the experience doesn’t get too stale without major changes between seasons. The latest weapon to see an unvaulting after an extended stay in the vault is Impulse Grenades, last remembered during the earlier stages of Chapter 2. If you’re not sure where to find this returning item, no need to worry. In this guide, we’ll explain where to find Impulse Grenades in Fortnite!

Where to Find Impulse Grenades in Fortnite

where to find firework flare gun fortnite

Before we go over where you can find this item, let’s first discuss what it does. Impulse Grenades, as the name so aptly implies, can be thrown to launch players and vehicles from the point of impact outward and upward. Enemies hit will also not have fall damage immunity, meaning almost guaranteed damage when landing from a launch. This makes these grenades incredibly useful against targets holding a particular position, as a throw can not only send them out of position but can also deal a bit of damage and potentially give you the upper hand.

Now, as for where you can find the Impulse Grenades, players from back during the earlier days of Chapter 2 shouldn’t be surprised to learn this is like most loot in Fortnite. You can find these grenades just about anywhere on the map, and through any method. This includes the standard ground loot scattered in buildings, through randomly spread chests located across the map, through supply drops, and just about anywhere else. They’ll come in stacks of three, with a max stack size of nine.

Fortnite UFOs Unvaulted: Where To Get UFOs And How They Work – GameSpot

Fortnite has so many items, weapons, and vehicles that Epic has to cycle through them over time to ensure we get to enjoy them all. Earlier this week, Junk rifts were unvaulted to add a little extra mayhem to matches, but we’ve now received a surprise weekend update bringing the fan-favorite UFO vehicle back to the battle royale for four days. From now until Monday, August 15, you can round up these flying vehicles at various points across the map as part of the game’s Flying Objects Weekend, so let’s take a look at where to find them and what they do.

Where to get UFOs in Fortnite and how they work

UFOs, or Flying Saucers, are flying vehicles that sport five seats so that you can bring your full squad along for the ride. They come packing a battery that lasts for 400 seconds, giving you plenty of time to get about, and it recharges when not in use. They can be found at six specific spots on the map, which we’ve compiled below.

UFOs can be found at these locations.
UFOs can be found at these locations.

UFOs can ascend and descend while flying across the map, and they possess a boosting function for enhanced speed. This makes them a fun and useful choice for squads looking to reposition with less concern over ground obstacles. However, it’s worth noting that using the vehicles makes you exceptionally easy to spot, so be mindful of your surroundings and expect company.

Additionally, UFOs fire energy blasts that deal 30 damage to opponents and 450 damage to structures. While the damage to enemies may seem low, do keep in mind that the blast also pushes them around. Because of this, it can be great for blasting folks off buildings or hills to kill them indirectly with fall damage.

Perhaps the vehicles’ most unique feature is their ability to abduct items and players below them. You can pick up large items and drop them on other players for huge damage, or you can abduct an enemy and separate them from their team while your squad dishes out huge damage to them. You can even abduct a fallen teammate to move them out of harm’s way so you can get off a quick revive behind cover, you clever extra-terrestrial.

Samsung’s metaverse island in Fortnite goes live next week – SamMobile – Samsung news

Samsung is all in on the metaverse concept. After launching virtual worlds in Decentraland, ZEPETO, and Roblox earlier this year, Samsung unveiled at Galaxy Unpacked 2022 that it will soon release its own island in the Fortnite metaverse.

Called “Smart City,” Samsung’s Fortnite metaverse island celebrates the launch of the company’s latest foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4. Fortnite players visiting Samsung’s island will be able to experience and interact with Samsung products in the virtual environment.

Samsung Latin America says that Smart City is “not just about having fun, but above all about exploring and building relationships.” Either way, it has gameplay elements and easter egg hunts for in-game loot.

The hunt for new in-game loot starts next week

The explorable virtual space contains structural elements, such as buildings, bridges, and spotlights that resemble Samsung’s new foldable phones and The Freestyle projector. Smart City will open in the Fortnite metaverse from August 18.

In gameplay terms, Samsung’s Smart City in the Fortnite metaverse will be a part of the Z Series Fun Game Quest. It encourages players to play “hide and seek” games and find the new hidden Galaxy Z Fold 4 in-game item. While keeping the Z Fold 4 in the possession of their characters, players can enable features such as Nightography, which gives them enhanced night vision inside the game world.

Samsung’s new foldable phones promise brighter and better sensors, improved night-time photography, and tons of other cool new features and upgrades, bigger batteries, and higher build quality. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4 are available for pre-order in most markets for the starting prices of $999 and $1,799, respectively.

At Unpacked 2022, Samsung also announced a new pair of wireless earbuds with Advanced Intelligent ANC, and a couple of new Galaxy Watch 5 smartwatches, including a Pro model with a large-enough battery to last for up to 80 hours on a full charge.

Fortnite invites players to submit island designs for the Fortnitemares 2022 – GamingonPhone

Epic Games is already planning for the annual Fortnitemares 2022 event as the summer Fortnite event draws to an end. Players will have access to exclusive new attractions and cosmetics as part of this celebration of the spookiest time of the year, which is guaranteed to make it better than ever.

Fortnite has urged players to create and contribute new spooky levels that will be featured during the Fortnitemares 2022 event in order to build up to the big event. However, Epic cautions that this year’s choices won’t be satisfied by old scares. Players are urged to use the more recent tools, such as the Level Instance gadget and the Prop Manipulator, instead.

Fortnitemares 2022 Island design guidelines

Here are some of the guidelines for Fortnite island design in Fortnitemares 2022:

  • Every year, a sizable number of new Fortnite players join Fortnitemares. Make sure your island is easy to navigate and understand so that new players can truly sink their fangs into it to help entice them to your islands.
  • Old scares simply don’t terrify as effectively as they once did, so be sure to utilize the new 2022 additions to the mechanics and devices. Create frightful caves with the Level Instance tool, deliver jittery haunted houses with the Prop Manipulator, and push your guests to leap, slide, and mantle over barriers to avoid all the frightening monsters and other imaginative creatures you can come up with.
  • With eliminations, be imaginative. Have your players perish at the hands of zombies, become lost in a maze during a storm, and die in other imaginative ways. Even if games don’t always revolve around eliminations, add some drama and intrigue to your island.
  • Bring the spooky vibe to your Fortnite island in any way you can, but don’t be afraid to give Fortnitemares 2022 your own unique touch. Zombie Dance Party, Haunted Houses, and Creepy Corn Mazes are always entertaining, but you can adapt and remix them to create the Fortnite nightmare of your dreams! Be original in your writing and design to increase your chances of being featured.

Fortnitemares 2022 callout criteria

Here are the callout criteria for Fortnitemares 2022:

  • Only one island per creator will be accepted.
  • Make sure your island is on the theme.
    • Make sure your island follows the specified Fortnitemares theme. 
  • We’re looking for high-quality experiences.
    • Fully functional islands that use devices well, set effective boundaries and are highly polished make for a better player experience. (And they make your island more likely to be featured!)
  • Prioritize innovation (must use newer devices).
    • Boundary-pushing and never-before-seen designs will certainly grab our attention. 
  • Each submission requires a video overview.
    • Submission videos must show a fly-through of the entire island as well as one round of gameplay.
  • Submissions must be new islands.
    • Any island considered for featuring must be a brand new island published during the callout period.
  • Promotional trailers are encouraged.
    • Including a captivating promotional trailer for your island is not required but highly encouraged. (Submission overview videos are, however, required.)

Even though Fortnite hasn’t yet accepted entries for these islands, it is encouraging artists to start making their spookiest works yet for Fortnitemares 2022. There isn’t much time left before the current season of Fortnite ends and the fall season kicks off, so players will probably be able to submit their islands in the next week or two.

Epic Games teases Fortnite and Dragon Ball crossover event which may feature Goku with a gun – The Verge

In the endless cavalcade of Fortnite crossovers comes a new one that I’m actually surprised hasn’t happened sooner. Goku’s potentially coming, meaning a handful of beloved Dragon Ball characters are also about to get dropped off at Tilted Towers strapped with an AK and some slurp juice. Sweet lord Jesus, that’s a sentence.

The Fortnite Twitter account teased the news, hinting at an August 16th release, and players are already seeing what look to be assets from the event. One of them is a bunch of in-game furniture that looks like Master Roshi’s outdoor lounge area featuring a Capsule Corp capsule. The other is a wallpaper featuring Master Roshi’s iconic deserted island.

We already know nothing is sacred to Fortnite when there’s money to be made, but at the risk of repeating a familiar refrain, it feels wrong to have Goku blast anything that’s not a Kamehameha wave. Guns are better suited to Yamcha or Oolong. Hell, I know Bulma and Launch stay strapped. But Goku? No. Doesn’t matter, though. We are but fools to try to stem the tide that is Fortnite’s incomprehensible crossovers. At least this addition might finally give us a realistic answer to the age-old question of who would in a fight:

Superman

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has two pay-to-win items most people don’t know about – Sportskeeda

Pay-to-win items in Fortnite are a menace and give a clear advantage to players. Those who own these items do not have to rely much on aiming and building skills. They can easily come out on top in tricky situations using pay-to-win items such as skins, emotes, and pickaxes.

Unfortunately, Epic Games overlooked several glitched cosmetics in Chapter 3 Season 3. Therefore, players ended up having more pay-to-win cosmetics in the ongoing season that a lot of people don’t know about. While some of these glitches have been patched, the rest continue to be a must-have.

Epic Games has been under heavy criticism recently for items like the Dragon Lance pickaxe and the Crew Pack membership. Both of these broke Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 since these are the most recent pay-to-win items to arrive in the Battle Royale game.


Every pay-to-win item to arrive in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

Items that give players an advantage over others are extremely popular in the Battle Royale game. Although it is a completely free-to-play game, Epic Games still offers cosmetic items that players can purchase from the item shop.

Skins like the Toy Trooper and Custom Superheros have always been abused by players to hide in plain sight. There have also been pickaxes like the Star Wand that ended up doing extra damage due to a glitch.

Fortunately, all of these cosmetics have been fixed by the developers, but there are still a few new pay-to-win items that arrived in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.

Dragon Rune Lance

The first pay-to-win item to arrive in the ongoing season was the the Dragon Rune Lance pickaxe. Unlike the Star Wand, this pickaxe did not deal any greater damage. Instead, it allowed players to sneak up on their enemies without giving away any audio cues.

With the Dragon Rune Lance equipped, players could walk around without making any noise. This made the pickaxe extremely broken and Epic Games had to disable the cosmetic item until the glitch was fixed.

The Dragon Rune Lance might have been fixed already, but there is another pay-to-win item in Chapter 3 Season 3. In fact, the entire Crew Pack subscription has been pay-to-win ever since June. Players with a Crew Pack subscription can win a game of Impostors LTM almost everytime.

A glitch allows players to open the Crew menu while playing the Impostors LTM. This helps them move during the voting time and avoid getting eliminated. Clearly, players with a Crew Pack subscription can cheat their way into winning every game just by purchasing the subscription.

Besides the Dragon Rune Lance and the Crew Pack, Chapter 3 Season 3 has several pay-to-win emotes, such as the Neighborly Hang emote from previous seasons.

Players can use these to get away with tricky situations or catch enemies off-guard. Most of the pay-to-win items get patched immediately, but the ones like Fortnite Crew Pack and other emotes are still broken beyond repair.

Fortnite players urge Epic Games to fix the Loot Chests disappearing bug – GamingonPhone

Fortnite is a globally famous sandbox game with an active player base that is dedicated and loyal because of the constantly evolving in-game content. With games that have constantly evolving in-game content, player feedback is one of the most important things to keep everything smooth and hassle-free. Fortnite in the past has been very quick in resolving issues inside the game with their hotfixes and major weekly updates. But numerous Fortnite players have now encountered a loot chest bug that is getting on their nerves.

The Bug in Fortnite makes the Loot Chest disappear and leaves players with no loot

Recently during the v21.30 update, Fortnite introduced the No Sweat No Summer event. It also added the Prime Shotgun which is considered to be the most powerful in Chapter 3 Season 3. But the update left a bug that is now testing every player’s patience.

The Loot Chest bug happens when a player tries to open a loot chest, the chest just teleports to a nearby location leaving the player with no loot. This makes it extremely hard for players to continue playing the game. It hinders the overall experience for players and also results in players losing matches.

Over the last few days, thousands of players have taken to social media to get Epic Games’ attention and force them to resolve the bug.

Players have been constantly posting videos of the issues caused by the bug. They have also stated that their gaming experience has been affected by the bug. Some players have even said that they lost matches because of this bug.

FNCS players are also affected by this bug and they are more than upset

Not just normal gamers, FNCS players have also been adversely affected by the loot chest bug. A couple of FNCS players have expressed concerns that the bug in the game could cost them important competitive matches. These are united casual gamers and professional Esports athletes calling on Epic to resolve the bug from doing any further damage.

Fortnite has not put out an official statement about the issue yet. However, players have continued to discuss the issue on social media platforms which will get Epic’s attention. Keeping in mind Epic Games’ extreme dedication to players’ feedback and improving user experience, we might see the issue is resolved soon.

Could MultiVersus be the “Fortnite of fighting”? – Rice Digital

Yes, yes, I know, I know, I cringed while writing that headline too, but having spent a bit of time with MultiVersus this afternoon, I think it’s a valid comparison to draw — and I’m not the only one who has been making such comparisons, either.

For the unfamiliar, MultiVersus is the new platform fighter (read: Smash clone) from Warner Brothers. It’s currently available in open beta, and it follows a free-to-play model. It’s free to download and get started, but acquiring new characters requires either grinding in-game currency through playing, or paying up for the game’s hard premium currency to unlock things immediately. There’s also a Battle Pass which, as always in this kind of thing, has a free and a paid premium tier, allowing you to unlock a series of rewards over the course of a “season”, with the more interesting rewards, of course, being on the paid track.

MultiVersusMultiVersus

MultiVersus is everything I feel like I should hate and detest — and the fact that I’m not a particular fan of many Warner Bros. characters in the first place either doesn’t help matters — and yet I found myself actually having a good time with it. Moreover, even despite jumping immediately into online play against other people rather than cowering in the corner with bots like I usually do, I didn’t find myself immediately demoralised and never wanting to touch it ever again. Rather, I found the experience quite invigorating and enjoyable, and I’m actually curious to give it a bit more of a go later.

This is the Fortnite angle. Take an established formula that has traditionally been regarded as fairly hardcore — first- and third-person shooters in the case of Fortnite, fighting games in the case of MultiVersus — and make it more accessible. Remove the barrier of entry completely by making it free to get started, provide incentive for people to keep playing after they’ve given it a quick go with various drip-feeds of rewards, and implement a solid matchmaking and netplay system to allow for constant competition where you never have to wait long for an opponent.

I typically eschew free-to-play games because I tend to find the business model intrusive, particularly in the case of story-centric games with gacha mechanics. It’s why I ended up bouncing off things like Granblue Fantasy and Fate/Grand Order despite their solid storytelling and characterisation, and it’s why I’ve never even bothered installing Genshin Impact.

MultiVersusMultiVersus

But for titles like MultiVersus this model makes a lot more sense. There is absolutely no attempt to contextualise anything that is going on here; it’s simply a toybox where various Warner Bros. characters battle it out to prove who is the “best”. Why? It doesn’t matter. It’s just a game. With that in mind, it somehow feels less obtrusive when you stumble across parts of the game that you need to pay up or grind for. Don’t get me wrong, I’d be tearing this game a new arsehole if it was a full-price release, because that shit has no place in a title you’ve already paid anywhere between £20 and £60 for — but as a free-to-play game? It works.

The limitations imposed on you when you start playing MultiVersus are a good means of getting to know the game. With just a few characters available to you across the “Brawler”, “Tank” and “Support” archetypes, you’re encourage to find the basic play style you’re most comfortable with, and then start getting to know one character a bit better.

Each character has a “mastery” level, which allows you to unlock new features — including passive “perks” that can benefit both you and any teammates you have — and thus there’s incentive to spend some time familiarising yourself with one of the initial lineup. And that initial lineup are easy to handle and understand, too; their various moves make sense and you’ll quickly find it easy to understand the best times at which to make use of them.

MultiVersusMultiVersus

MultiVersus’ combat is Super Smash Bros. with a few twists. For starters, there’s no “up to jump” nonsense here, which eliminates one of my most consistent frustrations with Smash’s controls. Here, you have one button to jump and another to dodge, with the latter working both on the ground and in the air. Then, you’ve got one attack button (with four different attacks assigned to it according to whether or not you’re pushing a particular direction when you press it) and one special button (likewise with four options). That’s all you really need to know to get started.

A brief, rather tedious but nonetheless reasonably helpful tutorial introduces platform fighter newcomers to the basics of the genre, and is worth completing because it rewards you with a playable character. From thereon, you have the option to play against bots or real players, and in both cases you can take on 1 vs 1 fights, 2 vs 2 team battles, or 2 vs AI survival fights. There’s also a training room called The Lab where you can practice your moves against a customisable opponent, and this can be accessed while you’re waiting for matchmaking if it’s taking a while.

Online performance was absolutely flawless while I played; there was no evidence of stuttering or lag, and controls felt completely responsive at all times. There was no point at which I felt I was battling against other people’s connections rather than their characters, and the experience was as smooth as if I was playing against offline bots. There’s obviously been some real effort made with the netcode for this game, which is sure to please those who care particularly strongly about such things.

MultiVersusMultiVersus

Social features are pretty limited right now; there’s no real-time chat, for example, and communicating with other players is perhaps best handled through external software such as Steam right now. You can, however, browse people you’ve played with recently, check out their MultiVersus and Steam profiles where applicable, and invite them to play in a party with you. Matches also default to a “best of three” format if all the participants agree; any player is free to drop out at any time, however.

Positivity is encouraged through the ability to “Toast” other players after you have played with them — though rather peculiarly it requires another in-game currency to do this, and it’s not made altogether clear how you acquire it. At the other end of the spectrum, blocking toxic players or cheaters is a simple matter of hitting a button in the social panel.

Speaking of cheaters, the game’s PC version makes use of the Easy Anti-Cheat (aka EAC) software, which some players will doubtless be averse to — though note that EAC is a fairly widely adopted anti-cheat solution at this point, appearing in a variety of different games including, yes, Fortnite.

MultiVersusMultiVersus

Anti-cheat software can sometimes be a bit of a pain in the arse on PC, but outside of MultiVersus taking a little longer to load than one might expect for a game like this, it didn’t seem to have any noticeable impact on the in-game action. Let’s just hope MultiVersus’ implementation of EAC doesn’t suffer any account-locking bugs — Apex Legends was in the news recently for incorrectly banning players’ accounts should they suffer simple connection errors, for example.

There are some particularly praiseworthy features about MultiVersus. An extensive glossary of in-game terms makes picking up game-specific lingo very straightforward. A ton of optional tutorials allow you to practice more advanced skills beyond the initial lesson. And in-game feedback is absolutely excellent, with a fully customisable interface making it clear how the match is going, what the status of each character is and even the effects that various offensive and defensive moves apply when successfully performed.

My one hesitation with MultiVersus right now is that there just aren’t any characters that I really care about. Wonder Woman is neat, yes, and I’ll always have a soft spot for Bugs Bunny and Tom and Jerry, but there just isn’t the same “magic” that Smash has in terms of the roster. I’m sure this will change over time — Warner Bros. has a vast catalogue of characters they could potentially draw from over the long term, after all — but right now Smash absolutely still has a significant lead in terms of making me excited to try different fighters.

It also has a lot more for the single player to enjoy, while MultiVersus is very much about a simple, straightforward competitive fighting experience. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing — but it does mean that the package as a whole has a bit of a different focus to Smash.

MultiVersusMultiVersus

There’s no risk getting involved with MultiVersus, though — unless you pay attention to the tinfoil hat-wearing people who really don’t like EAC — so even if you, like me, are not at all sure about the game’s roster or competitive focus, it’s still worth giving a go. You might just find yourself with a new gaming obsession — and in the long-term, perhaps it’ll convince more fighting game makers to consider taking the free-to-play approach. It looks set to be a good means of bringing a lot more people into the community if the early performance of this game is anything to go by.

How to bounce on a Crash Pad, Bouncy Slurpshroom and off-road tires in a single match in Fortnite – Eurogamer.net

Bounce on a Crash Pad, a Bouncy Slurpshroom, and off-road tires in a single match is one of the Week 10 challenges in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.

While is is possible to find a Crash Pad items amongst randomised chest and floor loot, there is a good Crash Pad location that’s also near to an off-road tires location and access to a vehicle that can take you to a Bouncy Slurpshroom location to help you clear this challenge quickly.

Completing this Fortnite task will reward you with 15k XP, which will then help you towards unlocking the new Battle Pass skins.

Fortnite best location to bounce on a Crash Pad, Bouncy Slurpshroom, and off-road tires in a single match

We found that the best way to bounce on a Crash Pad, Bouncy Slurpshroom, and off-road tires in a single match in Fortnite is to land on the island east of Sanctuary to find off-road tires to bounce on. They are located below the large, now destroyed, statue of The Foundation.


Once you do that, there are lots of Crash Pad locations near this island, so just head north toward the floating dance floors and you’ll find a Crash Pad to bounce on. This is also a good location to complete the Week 9 challenge that asks you to bounce on three separate Crash Pads without landing.


To complete this challenge in a single match as quickly as possible, in case you get eliminated or the storm circle closes in, we recommend getting in a boat and heading west to Reality Falls. There should be plenty of boats hugging the shoreline and near the floating structures in the water. Although not guaranteed to spawn at this location, we found two boats just north of the large dancefloor past the Crash Pads.


You can walk or find another vehicle to get to Reality Falls, but we found travelling in a boat was the quickest route, as there’s no bumpy hills or large landmarks to navigate around on your way.

When you get to the shore south of Rave Cave in the boat, get out and make your way toward the giant mushrooms. You’ll soon find a Bouncy Slurpshroom location amongst these larger mushrooms.


As long as you’ve done all of the above in a single match, you’ll clear the challenge and get 15k XP when you bounce on the Slurpshroom.


Chapter 3 Season 3 has arrived – bringing with it a new Battle Pass, character collection, map locations and Victory Umbrella, along with the return of Victory Crowns. You can now get Indiana Jones skins and cosmetics by completing challenges like collecting relics, damaging opponents in vehicles, and finding the secret door location. It’s also good to know how to ride animals, the geyser locations along with where to find a Baller and zipline and use the new Grapple Glove, and if you’re after a specific Battle Pass skin, then it’s a good idea to know how to get XP fast.


For quick reference, here’s the best locations to bounce on a Crash Pad, Bouncy Slurpshroom, and off-road tires in a single match in Fortnite:

  1. Land on the island east of Sanctuary to find off-road tires to bounce on.
  2. Head just north of this island to bounce on Crash Pads floating in the water.
  3. Take a boat to the northern edge of Reality Falls to locate a Bouncy Slurpshroom near the giant mushrooms.
