Fortnite glitch is flipping players’ screens

Reddit user powerGladius posted a clip showcasing their encounter with this glitch in the middle of a match. They were just enjoying the game, and then the screen spontaneously flipped and locked sideways.

While this may seem amusing initially, it soon became clear that it would keep happening even when they tried to join other games. It’s far less fun to play Fortnite when you need to constantly keep your neck on your shoulders.

The comments were filled to the brim with other players that had also encountered this issue, and they were demanding that Epic Games issue a fix for this issue.

Even pro players like Thiago ‘K1nG’ Lapp of FaZe Clan Brazil and ‘Snow’ from Falcons Gaming have vented about their experience with this glitch. This means that this issue is widespread, and can happen to any player.

There is no doubt that Epic Games will end up investigating this issue, and then coming up with a permanent fix for it. However, they’ve not acknowledged it at the time of writing, so they might not know about it yet.

We’ll keep checking for any updates regarding this situation. Once the devs announce a proper fix for the bug, we’ll be sure to update you.

Fortnite player discovers genius tricks for off-road tires

A clever Fortnite YouTuber has discovered some genius tricks you can pull off with Season 6’s new tires, and they don’t involve vehicles.

Fortnite off-road tire tricks

A clever Fortnite player has found some genius ways to use Fortnite’s new tires, and not in ways you might expect.

A major part of Fortnite is discovering clever ways you can use your builds, the environment, items, and weapons to get the upper hand on your opponent. Chonkers off-road tires arrived with the 16.20 update, and while they are designed for modding vehicles, the community has already discovered their other uses.

Fortnite YouTuber Ryuzanami has demonstrated several tricks you can pull off with the tires, and, surprisingly, none of them involve vehicles.

As Fortnite players have become more advanced at the building mechanics of the game, taking and getting through other players’ walls has become one of the most important aspects of the game. Ryuzanami showed that you can use the tires to phase through walls 100% of the time. If you throw the tire into the corner, push up against the wall, and break it, you are guaranteed to get through.

With the storm ever closing in, you can also use these tires to boost your movement speed. As you jump off the tire, you can continue to pick them up, repeating the process until you’re safe from the storm. Or, mid-fight, you can throw the tires on the ground below you and use them to take height from your opponents.

Once you have this height, you can also use the tires to avoid fall damage. Throw the tires on the floor below you then build a floor above, jump on top of the tires, then they will remain below your feet and break your fall. Just don’t pick up the tires on the way down or you’ll fall to your death.

Also, using their bouncy nature, you can throw them at opponents forcing them to take fall damage. However, this is extremely situational and is more fun than a competitive strategy.

With these tips in mind, keeping one of your inventory slots free for tires can provide you with a plethora of opportunities to get the upper hand in build fights.

As Fortnite’s story has progressed, several different versions of Jonesy have arrived. These can all be found on the island, and you need to talk to them to complete Season 6’s Spire Quests.

Here are the locations of each Jonesy on the Fortnite Season 6 island.

  • Castaway Jonesy: Desert island northeast of Steamy Stacks
  • Bunker Jonesy: Found in multiple locations on the map, e.g Lighthouse Building to the northwest of Stealthy Stronghold
  • Grill Sergeant: At the Durr Burger Food Truck east of Stealthy Stronghold
  • Wreck Raider: North end of Coral Castle
  • Suntan Specialist: Found on the beach at Sweaty Sands
  • Rex: In the building east of The Spire

You only need to find five of the Joneses around the map, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find all five in one match of Battle Royale or Team Rumble. Plan a route depending on the Battle Bus’s line and you’ll be able to complete this challenge in only a few matches.

Where to find and duel Jonesy the First

After you’ve found the five Joneses around the Season 6 island, you’ll be tasked with finding and dueling Jonesy the First. Luckily, he’s always in the same location. You can find him in the house on the northwest corner of Pleasant Park.

Simply talk to him and select the duel option to begin the fight. We recommend gathering some weapons, shields, and materials before taking him on. He shouldn’t be difficult to defeat, but you could find yourself struggling if you’re unprepared.


Finding the Joneses and dueling the OG isn’t particularly difficult, but is time-consuming. However, with this guide, you should complete the spire quests in no time. And be sure to check out the Week 5 Quests for some extra XP.
