Fortnite Season 5 bug gives players free wins with Invisibility

The quicksand feature in Fortnite Season 5 has an exploit that players are using to enter God Mode and become invisible.

Fortnite Season 5 has got a game-breaking bug where players can use the new Quicksand feature to enter a God mode state – giving them free wins.

It’s not unusual for a game’s latest update to come with a few bugs. We’ve seen it happen with nearly every major franchise and Fortnite is no different. Epic Games introduced a quicksand feature in Season 5, Chapter 2 and players are taking advantage of it right away.

The mechanic is meant to offer you a way to hide from enemies while you plan your attack. It comes with the extra boost of increased movement speed, so you can use the sand to travel much faster too. The quicksand has a lot in common with props from Season 10 in Chapter 1, but it’s not without its problems.

Turns out the new movement mechanic has a bug that you can exploit to enter a God mode state.

The glitch has made it so that you can use the sand to become invisible as well as completely invulnerable, so users can easily wrack up wins by utilizing the exploit.

Plenty of players have run into the issue since Chapter 2, Season 5 got underway – including Fortnite data miner iFireMonkey who showed off a clip of just how infuriating it can be to come up against someone who is glitched out.

This glitch is clearly game-breaking, so, Epic Games will need to roll out a patch for it as quick as possible. At the moment, though, the quicksand bug isn’t listed on the Fortnite Trello Board, so it’s likely that they haven’t caught onto the problem yet. The entire mechanic might get taken out of commission for a bit if a fix isn’t found soon.

It’s unclear whether or not there’s a specific method to follow before you can enter God mode. Until we hear from the developers about this, we’ll keep looking into the matter to see what else we can find out about the bug.

Where to find Riot in Fortnite Season 7

There are various NPCs scattered across Fortnite Island, and each one serves a different purpose, such as selling weapons or protecting the player. Riot will fire at you on sight, so be ready for a battle.

You can find this NPC on the west side of the Yellow Steel Bridge between Misty Meadow and Catty Corner. Make sure you collect some solid weapons and gear before going to battle against Fortnite Riot, as he will be hostile.

We’ve marked this location on the map below.

Simply take cover as much as possible by building structures or using your surroundings. Once he stops firing at you, you can take your opportunity to shoot him down. Luckily, he isn’t too difficult to bring down.

We recommend keeping a few shield potions on you just in case since the aim of Fortnite Riot is deadly. Once he’s down, you’ll be able to loot him for gear, and the game will reward you with 30,000 XP, so it is definitely worth it to take the time to find Fortnite Riot and defeat the NPC.

After the Alien invasion arrived, many changes came to Fortnite Island. Holly Hedges has been changed to Holly Hatchery, and it’s the area that you’ll need to visit for this Legendary Quest.

This location has changed into a farm for Alien Eggs in Season 7, and there’s a low gravity biome in the area. Head over there, and look for little green orbs that are sprouting out of the ground.

You can also check the southwest portion of the purple crater in the center of the map.

You only need to mark one Alien Egg so make your way to either one of these locations. After you come across one, you can mark it by pinging its location on your map. So use the mouse scroll, or the left D-pad button.

Once that’s done, you’ll earn a total of 30,000 XP. You can also complete the rest of the weekly challenges to earn some extra XP and Battle Stars.

More NPCs are expected to be added over the course of the season, so we’ll update this article with any new character and their location.
