‘Double Pump’ glitch found in Fortnite Season 5

Double Pumping has been out of the game for a while, but this new Fortnite Season 5 strategy could bring it back.

Published

You can use The Dub shotgun to “Double Pump” in Fortnite Season 5. This is either a bug or a new feature that Epic Games has implemented.

Now that Fortnite Season 4 is officially over, we’ve shifted back from superpowers to guns. Season 5 is filled to the brim with exciting content, including different weapon types. Exotic guns are a new addition to Fortnite, and one of these is called ‘The Dub.’

This is a new variant of the Double Barrel Shotgun, but it comes with the Flint-Knock Pistol’s knockback capabilities. You can purchase this weapon at Compact Cars but it will be ludicrously expensive due to its rarity.

The Dub will become more prevalent later in the season as players earn more Gold Bars. One different thing about this weapon is that it doesn’t have the switching cooldown between shotguns.

The shotgun cooldown timer is a feature that was introduced during the first Chapter of Fortnite. It’s meant to keep players from Double Pumping, a strategy that involves picking up two Pump Shotguns and quickly switching between each one after firing.

Since the The Dub doesn’t have the switching cooldown between shotguns, you can use this strategy to bypass the low magazine size. You can also combine it with Tac or Charge for added speed.

This strategy can be seen in action in a clip by Fortnite YouTuber, OrangeGuy, below.

At the moment, we’re not sure this is a bug or a feature that the developers intentionally added to the game. The former is probably the case, as this strategy has been increasingly nerfed since Season 3 to the point that it became impossible to perform.

Epic Games haven’t addressed this issue, so it probably hasn’t come to their attention yet. If they announce anything related to the Double Pump, then we’ll update you.

Now, it has not yet been revealed who this particular superstar will be for this event. However, it has been leaked that popular musical star Ariana Grande will be having a concert event in the same way that Travis Scott previously did.

If you want to catch Fortnite’s new concert event then you’ll need to log into the game ahead of the scheduled event time. You’ll then see the playlist for the Rift Tour about 30 minutes prior to the event.

You have the option to ‘save the date’ by going to the Rift Tour section of the Fortnite lobby. This will inform you of the event’s starting time and will also let you know which of your friends are attending.

Fortnite Ariana Grande concert leaks: Start date, skins, prices & more

A new Ariana Grande skin and concert event has been leaked for Fortnite Season 7, and here’s everything we know about it.

Ariana Grande in Fortnite

A brand-new concert event has been leaked for Fortnite Season 7, with singer and actress Ariana Grande set to arrive as a new skin. Here’s everything we know about the event, including the start date.

Fortnite has seen several in-game events such as the Cosmic Summer Celebration, Rainbow Royale event, and even a Travis Scott concert. Now, it seems that another concert event will be coming to the game.

Some new leaks revealed the arrival of singer and actress Ariana Grande to the battle royale as a new skin and some other cosmetics during an upcoming in-game concert event.

Singer and actress Ariana Grande

When is the Fortnite Ariana Grande concert?

According to notable Fortnite data miner iFireMonkey, the Ariana concert is currently set to take place on July 31, 2021. The files required for the event will be added when the v17.21 update goes live.

Content creator Ali-A has a theory that the recent influx of Pride cosmetics, the Rainbow Royale, and Ariana Grande concert are all connected, as the singer is performing at a Pride event in August.

Other leaks suggest that the Epic Games staff have already conducted a test launch for the in-game concert, so this release date is likely accurate. 

However, reputable Fortnite data miner and leaker HYPEX posted on July 29 that the Ariana Grande Fortnite concert is set to take place on August 6, 7, and 8.

With the official announcement of the Rift Tour musical event for the game on July 29 stating that it will be taking place on August 6 through the 8, these dates look to be when this highly-anticipated concert is taking place.

How much will the Fortnite Ariana Grande skin cost?

When Travis Scott came to Fortnite as a new skin, he was available as part of the battle royale’s ICON Series. The Ariana Grande skin will probably be released through the same means.

In that case, the skin will cost around 1,500 V-Bucks. This is the same price set for recent ICON Series skins like World Cup winner Bugha and NBA superstar Lebron James.

There will also be other cosmetics that arrive as part of the concert event, but details regarding all of this have been scarce. So we don’t know the exact price for these items, but we expect them to cost the same as previous Icon Series cosmetic sets.

Fortnite Season 7 Kymera and alien invasion

With Season 8 set to start in September, the Ariana Grande concert event might be a fantastic way to make the final month of Season 7 more memorable. So far, Epic Games have been keeping it under wraps.

We’ll keep checking for more news regarding this and will be sure to update this article as we learn more. Stay tuned to Charlie INTEL for updates, and check out how to complete all the Ferrari challenges in Fortnite.
