Crash Pads and Bouncers might be two of the most useful items in the history of Fortnite. Bouncers have been used for mobility since they were first released, but Crash Pads are a relatively recent addition to the game.
It seems like players find a new way to use Crash Pads every few weeks, whether that’s to jump into an opponent’s box or to send themselves flying into the next zone. This new strategy falls into the latter category.
Twitter user @Albedo_14 was the first player to come up with this trick, tweeting a video of a Crash Pad sending him over 100 meters in the air.
As you can see from the video, Albedo placed a Bouncer on the wall and a cone over his head. He edited the cone into a ramp, edited the floor beneath him, and angled the Crash Pad below.
Instead of the Crash Pad breaking the Bouncer on the wall, it pushed him into it, which sent him into the edited ceiling and launched him 100 meters forward. Here’s a video from Jedi2x that better describes how to complete the tactic.
We tested this in Creative Mode several times and couldn’t get the angle right. It’s a lot more difficult than it looks and we doubt that players could pull it off in a high-intensity situation.
It might be more effective than the original Crash Pad/Bouncer strat, but it isn’t nearly as reliable. We’d rather reliably travel a shorter distance than risk losing the Bouncer and becoming a sitting duck for the entire lobby.
What’s more, the Shockwave/Bouncer trick gives us almost as much distance as the new Bouncer/Crash Pad trick. The former is considerably easier to pull off, so we would advise using a Shockwave if you have some.
This method might not be the most practical, but it’s interesting and shows how innovative the Forntite community can be. There’s always something new to discover – most of which the developers never intended.
We can’t wait to see what the Crash Pad is used for next. We’re probably another week away from pro players finding another way to break into an opponent’s box with it.
How to launch into the air using Geysers in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
The Fortnite island in Chapter 3 has several Geysers that loopers can use for quick rotations and 15,000 XP, thanks to a weekly challenge.
Fortnite players have to launch into the air with the help of Geysers in Chapter 3 Season 3 in order to complete a weekly challenge that grants 15,000 XP.
Geysers have been an integral part of the Fortnite meta as they help players in launching into the air. One can use this boost to get away from enemies, escape the storm, or simply rotate to a new location.
A weekly challenge in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 2 requires players to use three Geysers, and here’s a quick guide to completing it.
Geyser locations in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
It is worth noting that Geysers in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 are primarily located in the newly released biome that is full of giant mushrooms. POIs like Greasy Grove and Reality Falls are a part of this region.
Instead of roaming around in search of Geysers, you can simply head to the Peril Pass landmark marked in the image below. It has seven Geysers situated right next to each other.
Two more Geysers are present near the massive Reality Tree in Reality Falls:
You only need to launch yourself into the air with Geysers three times and nine locations have been specified in the images above.
How to use a Geyser in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
Using a Geyser in Fortnite is as easy as it gets. You have to stand on it for a few seconds and the water pressure will automatically launch the character into the air. This is similar to Klombo’s blowholes that were present around the island in Chapter 3 Season 2.
All in all, Fortnite players can get 15,000 XP by completing this simple challenge. By completing all the weekly challenges, they’ll be able to progress three levels in the Battle Pass. It ain’t much but it’s honest work!
How to boost into a Runaway Boulder with a Baller in Fortnite Season 3
By boosting into a Runaway Boulder with a Baller in Chapter 3 Season 3, Fortnite players can quickly earn 15,000 XP.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 2 challenges are here. One of the challenges requires players to boost into a Runaway Boulder with a Baller, and here’s how to do it.
The Fortnite community has been complaining about the gruesome XP grind in Chapter 3 Season 3 for several days now. Amidst several nerfs and buffs to the Accolade XP system by Epic Games, Weekly and Daily quests are the only reliable source of XP for players.
Here’s a guide to completing a Weekly quest that grants 15,000 XP.
The Baller and Runaway Boulder locations in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
Runaway Boulders arrived in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 as a reference to Indiana Jones’ iconic scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark. You can find them on a ton of cliffs around the island and destroy their rock base to roll them down.
However, considering that the challenge requires players to boost into a Runaway Boulder with a Baller, it is better if they find one near Rave Cave only.
The spawn locations of the seven Ballers in Rave Cave have been marked in the images below:
Players will find three Ballers inside Cuddle Team Leader’s giant head at Rave Cave. Two Ballers can be found in the cave under the Cuddle Team Leader’s head and two more on the eastern platform.
After finding a Baller, players can use it to reach the Runaway Boulder marked in the image:
Ballers in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 can grant infinite boost with a glitch
The final step is to climb the cliff marked in the image above and hit the Runaway Boulder with a Baller while holding the boost button. Ideally, this should make the rock roll down the cliff, and players will be able to get 15,000 XP instantly.
Interestingly, loopers can get an infinite boost for their Baller with a simple glitch. Right when the vehicle’s energy finishes and the game displays the ‘energy depleted‘ bar, you have to hold the boost button. Thereafter, the Baller will keep on moving even with an empty energy bar.
Apparently, Runaway Boulders do not have definite spawn locations. Hence, if players do not find one near Rave Cave, they can use the infinite boost glitch and travel around the island to complete the XP challenge.
Where to find Grapple Gloves in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
Following months of anticipation, Spider-Man’s Mythic web shooters have returned as the Grappler Glove in Chapter 3 Season 3.
Fortnite has finally released the Grapple Gloves in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 and here’s every location where players can find them.
The Fortnite community loved playing with Spider-Man’s Mythic web-shooters in Chapter 3 Season 1. Mobility has always been a glaring issue in Epic Games’ Battle Royale title, and items like the web-shooters significantly improved the situation.
The web-shooters have now returned as the Grapple Gloves, and there are ten locations where you can find them.
Grapple Glove locations in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
It is worth noting that ten small huts scattered around the island have now turned into Grapple Glove pitstops. They have large signs and contain special loot boxes with Grapple Gloves.
Here’s what a pitstop looks like in-game:
Loopers must know that the Grapple Glove won’t be available as standard loot in chests. They will have to visit any of the following locations to get them:
- North of Logjam Lumberyard near Seven Outpost 2.
- Under Cuddle Team Leader’s head in Rave Cave near the pool.
- Southwest of Greasy Grove near Fungi Farm.
- North of Synapse Station near Desolate Delta landmark.
- North of Rocky Reels.
- East of Tilted Towers near The Devourer landmark.
- South of Sleepy Sound, next to the small red cabin.
- Northeast of Condo Canyon near Shrouded Settlement (South of The Joneses).
- Eastern edge of the map between Seven Outpost and Sunburned Shacks landmarks.
- Northeast of Daily Bugle.
Here’s an image in which each of the aforementioned locations has been marked:
Players won’t struggle a lot to find the Grapple Glove pitstops because they have large signs and a vibrant color scheme that stands out. Having said that, it is safe to assume that the competition to get these gloves will be fierce.
Grapple Gloves arrive early in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Arena
According to leakers, you can now find Grapple Gloves in Arena and they’ll arrive in other game modes shortly. In core modes like Battle Royale and Zero Build, they will have 30 shots while in Arena, a player can only swing 10 times with a single glove.
Spider-Man’s mythic web-shooters were clearly broken in terms of providing mobility to players. They helped in quickly getting away from opponents, rotations, and surprising opponents.
From the looks of it, the new Grapple Gloves will serve a similar purpose in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 and loopers can use this guide to get them in every game.
