Epic Games have finally dropped the first hint towards the Fortnite Season 5 Secret Battle Pass outfit, with the alien ship operated by The Predator parked on the map following the 15.20 update.

Fortnite’s 15.20 patch officially dropped on January 13, introducing the new Lever Action Shotgun and Hop Rock Dualies, along with a ton of cosmetic items that have been leaked by dataminers.

With Season 5 already into its sixth week, Epic Games have started to tease what the upcoming Secret Battle Pass skin will look like, and it seems that an extra-terrestrial warrior is headed for the island, with The Predator’s ship parked among the trees.

Finding Predator’s ship will be fairly straightforward, as it isn’t hidden away or obstructed. To find it, all you need to know is where to look. When you jump out of the Battle Bus, glide over to Stealthy Stronghold, and head towards the forest on the left-hand side of the POI.

Once you’re among the trees, you should be able to spot the ship fairly simply, parked on the ground with seemingly no damage.

Stealthy Stronghold can be a difficult area to manoeuvre around thanks to all the foliage, but to make things simple, we’ve marked the exact location of the ship below.

What this means for Fortnite going forward remains to be seen. It’s almost certain now that this is the first clue that Predator will be the Secret Battle Pass outfit for Season 5, but could we see the warrior become one of the Hunters that roam the island too?

It’s likely that more hints and clues will appear in-game over the next few weeks, so make sure to keep checking back to CharlieIntel as we cover all the latest Fortnite news.

NICKMERCS claims Warzone’s aim assist is stronger than Fortnite’s

Streamer NICKMERCS has explained why he believes Warzone’s aim assist is stronger than Fortnite’s, but less reliable.

Nickmercs Fortnite vs Warzone aim assist

Top streamer Nick “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff is most known for playing battle royale games and has weighed in on the aim assist debate, saying Warzone’s aim assist is stronger than Fortnite’s.

Since crossplay became commonplace in online FPS games, predominantly battle royales, the power of aim assist has been debated. The joysticks of a controller don’t provide the same level of precision as a mouse, so games balance it out by offering aim assist.

NICKMERCS has long been a top esports competitor using a controller. Having used a controller competitively since the Gears of War days, his aim has continued to pave the way for success in both competitive Fortnite and Warzone.

During a Fortnite stream with SypherPK, NICKMERCS discussed how aim assist differs between Warzone and Fortnite, with him believing that Warzone’s is stronger.

“I think aim assist is stronger in Call of Duty,” he said. “It used to be stronger on Fortnite but they made so many changes to aim assist on Fortnite over the years to the point that now, I believe it’s stronger on Call of Duty. I play on both and aim assist on CoD is crazy.”

However, NICKMERCS explained why although weaker, Fortnite’s aim assist is more reliable.

“The issue with aim assist on Call of Duty though, that you don’t really face on Fortnite, is that on Call of Duty, aim assist just goes away,” Nick explained. “You’ll be in the middle of a fight in the middle of nowhere and you’ll just lose aim assist.

On [Fortnite], it’s consistent the whole way through so you don’t really got to worry about that, know what I mean? It’s not just top Super, it’s all these weird pockets of no aim assist. It’s so odd.”

NICKMERCS concluded by saying that he believes aim assist is “stronger on Call of Duty but it’s also less consistent.”

Fortnite players find crazy rotation exploit in Season 6

A new exploit has been discovered by Fortnite players, that allows them to rotate across the Island in Season 6.

Fortnite Chickens

A few Fortnite players have discovered a useful new exploit that they can use to fly across the battle royale’s map in Chapter 2, Season 6.

Fortnite has seen its fair share of glitches and exploits over the years. Season 5 had a particularly troublesome one in the sand tunneling feature which was letting players become invisible. This led to it being disabled for the bulk of the season.

Things haven’t changed much in Season 6, as players have discovered exploits that allow them to farm unlimited Gold Bars, as well as continuously regenerate their health. Now, a few fans have found a new way to rotate across the map.

Fortnite Door edit exploit

The exploit is fairly simple, as it involves combining certain items with a simple door edit. Fortnite players can then make use of this exploit to rotate to different points on the Island.

Here’s how this is done:

  1. Find a low-gravity item like a chicken, Hop Rock Dualies, or Easter Egg
  2. Edit a door and then open it
  3. Jump on top, and close the door to rotate across the map

The only catch is that you’ll need to ensure that you’re facing in the right direction when using this exploit. The door will send you flying away from the direction that it’s facing, so make sure your position yourself accordingly.

Fortnite YouTuber SypherPK covered this exploit in a recent video, and he discovered a few details regarding it. One major factor is that it tends to work better with female characters than it does with males.

So far, it’s uncertain whether Epic Games are planning to do something about this exploit, or if they even know it exists. We’ll keep checking for updates, and will let you know about any new developments.

How to get the Recycler for Fortnite Season 6 Week 4 challenges

One of the new Fortnite Season 6 challenges requires you to deal damage with the new Recycler weapon, and here’s how you can get it.

Recycler in Fortnite

The Recycler is a brand new weapon that has been introduced in Fortnite Season 6, and here’s how you can get your hands on it for the new weekly challenges.

There are brand-new weekly challenges available in Fortnite that you can complete to progress through the Season 6 Battle Pass. These will net you some serious XP so that you can unlock new cosmetics.

In the latest content update, Epic Games added a new weapon called the Recycler or Junk Gun to the battle royale. One of the Week 4 challenges requires you to dish out damage with this happens, so here’s how you can obtain it.

The Recycler variants in Fortnite

The good news is that you won’t have to visit any specific NPCs or POIs on the Fortnite map to get your hands on this weapon. You won’t have to spend any Gold Bars either since you can find the Recycler as floor loot and chests.

Rather than using regular ammunition, this weapon will suck up materials for you to fire at your opponents. The maximum magazine size is 3, but you can collect more materials from your surroundings at any time.

The Recycler spawns in Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarity. Each of these variants dishes out different amounts of damage:

  • Rare: 75 damage
  • Epic: 79 damage
  • Legendary: 83 damage

The Recycler functions similarly to the Grenade Launcher, minus the splash damage. This means that you’ll have to land a direct hit at your enemy to hurt them, and this won’t have any effect on the foes surrounding them.

For this reason, we don’t currently see any reason to choose this weapon over other supplemental weapons or items. However, it’s still fairly useful when you want to save up on ammo.

As Season 6 progresses, we expect Epic Games to add even more unique weapons to Fortnite, and we’ll keep you updated on every new one that joins the game.
