How to get Fortnite’s new double-movement

You can try out double-movement in Fortnite with a mouse and keyboard, thanks to some third-party software that hasn’t been banned.

Double movement in Fortnite

Epic Games have gotten rid of the double-movement keybinds for Fortnite, but you can still make use of a third-party software to achieve the same function in the game.

One major advantage to playing Fortnite with a controller is that the joystick makes it much easier for you to strafe in one direction while looking elsewhere. Playing with a keyboard and mouse restricts your movement to four directions; front, back, left, or right.

This limitation can be frustrating, as it keeps you from being able to full-sprint while minding your surroundings. A few players used “double movement” keybinds to get around this until Epic Games removed them.

As the name implies, these would allow you to bind one of your movement inputs to two keys, so that you could achieve “controller movement.” Epic Games then banned this practice in-game by limiting movement input mapping to a single key.

However, Fortnite streamer BenjyFishy revealed to his followers that he used ReWASD and Keys2xInput to get around this issue, as Epic can’t ban them. He made sure to check with devs before adding it to his gameplay.

This implies that he got permission to use it, and you can also take advantage of it to get double movement when playing with a mouse and keyboard.

You can get a free trial of ReWASD, but will then have to pay for it each month after the trial ends. However, Keys2xInput is completely free, and will likely be the first choice for anyone who wants to try double-movement for the first time.

YouTuber itsJerian made an insightful video tutorial on how to set up these two programs, so you can check that one out for details about getting them to work.

While using third-party software for double-movement can seem tricky, it’s not as messy as it sounds. These programs simply emulate an ability that controller players already have, so that you can use it on your mouse and keyboard.

So far, Epic Games haven’t chimed in on this matter, and we don’t know for sure whether or not they plan to take action against this, but things look fine at the moment.

Players like BenjyFishy have contacts at Epic, so it’s likely that they were given the green light to use these programs, and you can try them out too.

Warzone Deployable Cover

Raven Software, the lead developers of Call of Duty: Warzone, have announced that they have removed Deployable Cover from the Call of Duty battle royale for the time being.

Field Upgrades are a kind of item that players have been able to use in battle since Call of Duty: Warzone first launched. These Field Upgrades could be found as floor loot and in supply boxes and provide various gameplay advantages for players who used them.

The Deployable Cover was one of the many Field Upgrades available for players to find and use in the first-person shooter until the developers of the fan-favorite game announced on May 11, 2021, would be taking the Warzone Deployable Cover out of the game.

Warzone Deployable Cover

Raven Software took to its official Twitter account and announced to the community that the studio had removed the Warzone Deployable Cover Field Upgrade from Supply Boxes and floor loot. The reasoning for removing this item was due to the studio wanting to “investigate an ongoing issue” with the Field Upgrade.

The developer added the removal of the Warzone Deployable Cover and its investigation of the issue with the item to the official Trello board for the franchise. The developers keep the community informed of what issues they are currently working on through this Trello board.

Now, Raven Software did not specifically say the issue with the item that caused them to decide to remove it from the Call of Duty battle royale.

However, members of the community discussed in response to the announcement that players were using it to get under the map in various areas of Verdansk ’84.

Glitch spots where players have been able to get under the map and in other areas not intended for players to enter have been a major problem with the game following the start of Season 3.

Raven Software may be looking to solve this problem at the spots where the Warzone Deployable Cover was being used to enter areas not intended for players to enter by removing it from the game for the time being.

We will update this piece with any new information regarding the removal of the Deployable Cover Field Upgrade when it is made available, and for more Warzone, stay tuned for future news and guides.

Orda is the formidable Zombies boss that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War players can fight on the Firebase Z map. One community member was able to take this monster down using only a Ballistic Knife to do so in an impressive fashion.

Bosses are some of the most exciting elements when it comes to Call of Duty Zombies, and Black Ops Cold War has one known as Orda, which can be fought on the Firebase Z map.

This Easter Egg boss is often used as a test of skill from Zombies players who see what interesting ways they can take down this enemy. This was the case for one member of the Black Ops Cold War Zombies community who utilized the unconventional Ballistic Knife weapon to defeat Orda shockingly.

Black Ops Cold War Ballistic Knife

The Ballistic Knife was added to Black Ops Cold War with the start of Season 3 and has become a popular weapon among players when it comes to pulling off highlight plays.

Elvivacious took this to the extreme when they upgraded the Ballistic Knife when playing on the Firebase Z map and proceeded to use it as their main weapon against the Orda boss.

What followed was an awe-inspiring display of damage, as elvivacious was able to take down the health of Orda and kill the boss in only a couple of seconds.

This feat was met with shocked reactions from other players, as they could not believe that elvivacious was able to take down Orda with only the Ballistic Knife in what seemed to be in the blink of an eye.
