The Fortnite Season 5 Holiday update will bring a new mechanic called “Dynamic Ice” to the game.
Fortnite’s Winterfest is upon us, which will likely bring us free skins and a festive map update to celebrate the Holiday season. Previous leaks have pointed to a Slurp Bazooka, a Christmas Flopper, and Snowman NPC, and now leakers are talking about “Dynamic Ice”.
The Holiday updates trailer has already been leaked by Fortnite leaker “Mang0e”, and depicts a holiday theme for the game, snowmen, and a festive plane in the distance.
Additionally, with the leak of the Trailer, Mang0e found that environmental ice is mentioned in the game’s files.
Apparently, it has been in the works alongside fire in patch 15.00. With this system, Ice will be melted by fire and there also may be a way for water to turn into ice as well. If this does come to the game, it will most definitely be used for Winterfest. The purpose of the electricity effect is currently unknown.
Of course with leaks, you’ll want to take this with a grain of salt. Nothing is confirmed until Epic announces it, and out of all the recent leaks this one holds the least substance due to it being based off a few strings in the games files.
Hopefully, we do see this mechanic added to the game though, perhaps the lakes in the game will freeze to ice and we will be able to break the ice with this mechanic.
Whatever it does, we’re sure to find out if it makes it in the Holiday update, which is due to release by December 20, if all follows past Fortnite winter event schedules.
We’ll update you if we get any more information regarding the release of the Winterfest event.
Fortnite jetpack glitch lets players fly forever in Floor is Lava tournament
Fornite players are taking advantage of a ridiculous new glitch that allows players to fly forever in a jetpack.
Fortnite has a weird new exploit that allows you to tower over your enemies, forever. The new jetpack glitch uses lava to make your character an unintentional superhero in Season 5.
There are only two months to go until the end of Fortnite Season 5. Aside from a few minor bugs, the first few weeks of it has been a relatively easy ride run thus far with few major stumbling blocks.
But a new problem has been discovered that is giving Fortniters a big boost over their rivals by exploiting an accidental mechanic.
Fortnite Season 5 jetpack glitch
The new jetpack exploit is one that will become less effective as it becomes notorious. But in this moment, it’s making for a huge advantage, particularly in endgame circumstances.

First posted by Reddit user monty775 the new glitch requires the player to have access to a jetpack and to be within touching distance of lava.
The exploit only applies to the “The Floor is Lava” LTM as well. The main game is thankfully safe. But for anyone wanting to enjoy this exciting new mode, vigilance will be key.
As demonstrated in the video, our player jumps into some deadly lava which causes them to bounce up into the air. But they simultaneously trigger their jetpack which causes them to permanently ascend.
The player keeps their jetpack engaged and they continue to rise up into the air. It’s been confirmed that you’ll be able to go as high as the natural limits of the jetpack. So there is no floating off into space sadly.
But as we said, if there’s only a few of you left and you’re miles above the ground peppering the enemy with almost phantom shots, you are increasing your chances of victory.
This isn’t an easy exploit to pull off. Given the precise timing needed to activate your jetpack, you could also just as easily become a toasted marshmallow. So it’ll all boil down to your conscience and whether or not you feel the risk is worth the reward.
Either way, this is a potentially game-breaking glitch for players that are unaware of its existence in the mode. Epic Games will have their eyes on it sooner or later and it will become a non-issue quite quickly.

Where to find & destroy Slurp Barrels for Fortnite Week 7 challenges
Here’s how you can complete the Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenge that requires you to destroy Slurp Barrels.
Fortnite Season 5’s Week 7 challenges include an Epic Quest that has you destroy Slurp Barrels. Luckily, you can find these in one location so here’s the best way to complete this objective.
Week 7 of Fortnite Season 5 is here, and Epic Games have released brand new challenges for you to complete to level up and get cool new gear. This week has eight tasks available that you can learn more about in our weekly guide.
Many of these are fairly easy to complete such as visiting houses or consuming shield potions. One Epic Quest requires you to destroy a set number of Slurp Barrels. Here is where you can find them on the map.
Where to find Fortnite Slurp Barrels
As the name implies, you will come across a ton of Slurp Barrels when exploring Slurpy Swamp. This location is a huge Slurp factory, so you won’t face any trouble finding the barrels after a quick look around.

Another Epic quest from this week requires you to visit 3 Houses in Slurpy Swamp during the same match, so you should land directly at Slurpy after jumping from the Battle Bus. Once you’ve gone through the houses, you can focus on your other objective.
Fortunately, the Slurp Barrels often come in sets of two or three, which makes them easy to locate. It shouldn’t take you too long to find them all. There’s a building on the northeast end of this area that contains many of them.
Make your way towards that building if you want to destroy multiple Slurp Barrels at once. We’ve marked its location on the map below.
Once you come across the barrels, all you need to do is pull out your pickaxe and destroy them. The Slurp Barrels are all over this location so finding 10 should be easy enough, and you can destroy them all in a single match.

Just be careful about other players that you will probably encounter while exploring Slurpy Swamp. Due to this week’s challenges, many of them will have the same idea to land there, so be ready for a fight.
Destroying all 10 barrels will net you 20,000 XP, so be sure to try this challenge out. While you’re at it, be sure to search for Chests in the area to complete another Epic Quest.
