A new Fortnite glitch allows players to instantly teleport to high-ground with the help of a few tools.
Update 12/22 2:20 EST: Sand Tunneling has been disabled in Arena Mode.
Original Article: Fortnite is no stranger to glitches, with some of them appearing over the course of several seasons. The “boat glitch” was in the game for a long time, allowing players to hop out of a boat and instantly teleport to high-ground.
YouTuber Glitch King has found another glitch that’s similar to this classic, but it uses the Sand and a Gas Can instead of a boat.
To do this glitch, all you need to do is throw down a Gas Can, sink into the sand, ram into the can, and jump. From there, you’ll instantly teleport to any structure above you. As you can see in the video, you can use this glitch to go from the bottom of the Tilted skyscraper to the top.
Casual players probably won’t see this glitch very much, but it could be a menace in competitive games. Late-game circles that end on the Zero Point could be littered with players teleporting to high-ground and into boxes above them.
Gas Cans are relatively common and are already a useful tool in competitive Fortnite. A lot of teams have these items going into late-game situations, meaning they’ll only need the circle to favor them to use this method.
Glitch King released his video on December 22, the day of writing. We wouldn’t be surprised to see Epic disable the Gas Cans until they fix this glitch – at least, in competitive.
Until then, you can use this glitch to your advantage or keep an eye out for someone else using it. Don’t be too comfortable if you have the high-ground.
