Epic Games have added new Mythic Items to Fortnite Battle Royale in Season 4, and one of them is a perfect counter for sharks in-game.
As you will know by now, sharks can be dangerous foes in the Fortnite world. If you are anywhere near water, even sometimes on land, they can come diving at you with those big old teeth showing.
Catch yourself in their jaw and it could be game over, so knowing what to do when you encounter one is very important for survival. After all, who wants to spend the whole game working their way into the circle only to get eaten in the endgame? Not many players, surely.
On September 6, Reddit user u/cobragrad17 showed off what appears to be the best way of killing them yet, and it’s super easy to do.
Using just one item, which is the Mystical Bomb found at Doom’s Domain, you can knock them right back into the water and send them on their way.
The Mythic Item itself is one of a kind, meaning it’s not always easy to get. There’s usually quite a bit of competition to get it as well.
To grab one, you need to eliminate Doctor Doom at Doom’s Domain, and he’s protected by a few henchmen. If you’re going for it, be sure to keep an eye out for his reinforcements. Getting outnumbered would be a nightmare, especially when you consider that Doc has higher a HP bar than a typical enemy.
Grab one and you’re golden for the rest of the game, though. Once you’ve got one, simply hit a shark with the ball and it will send them flying away as the video shows.
No more pesky sharks, and hopefully plenty more wins where they don’t cost you.
Epic shipped a secret change to Fortnite’s reboot vans without telling players in v14.00.

Epic has once again shipped pretty major changes without telling Fortnite players. They’ve buffed the cooldown between revives on the reboot vans dotted around the map, which will be crucial in the trios competitions this season.
Epic seemingly has a penchant for not telling Fortnite players new changes to the game. They leave it up to the data miners to reveal the “patch notes,” but even then, not all the changes get listed.
While this is fine for most bug fixes, when weapon values or other cooldowns get changed, it can completely shift the meta. The Fortnite devs have managed to do it yet again though after the v14.00 update.
In the major Season 4 update, players were caught up in the hype of Marvel skins, the mythic abilities, the new battle pass, and more. However, smaller gameplay changes were also made that could have a big effect on competitive play.
Reboot vans have reportedly had their cooldown between revives halved from 120 seconds to 60 seconds.
This is obviously a huge buff if you have multiple player cards you need to reboot. Less time spent in one location means you have a higher chance of living, especially when you consider how hotly contested these areas are in trios events.
The buff came at somewhat of a cost. The devs removed Reboot Vans at Authority and Fortilla, meaning there’s less places to try and get your allies back up from. If the storm moves central, or down to the South-East, you could be left in a spot of bother.
Regardless though, it’s probably an overall buff. Losing two reboot vans might have you hamstrung from time to time, but there’s still a dozen dotted across the map. Being able to do two reboots now in the same time as one old one can definitely help you rotate easier with the time saved.
The change does pose a bigger issue though — Epic needs to tell players about these updates. This small detail can change how you play the game massively, and players need to know about it.

Epic Games might have to act fast to patch a new glitch as some Fortnite Battle Royale players have found a way to get unlimited glider redeploys in-game.
Just like any other, Fortnite Season 4 has seen a few glitches and exploits surface since it kicked off. One of the more recent included the ability to access God mode, making player invincible in the battle royale title.
All that one needed was for players to jump into a haystack at the right time, at the right place. This one is just as easy as well, granting members of the community an easy escape mechanism for gunfights.
How Fortnite’s unlimited redeploy glitch works
Now, this new glitch is just as easy to do, and grants unlimited redeploys with your glider, meaning you can jump from pretty much anywhere and glide away from enemies without a hitch.
It was uncovered in a YouTube video, seen below, from content creator Jugger. All you have to do here is to jump on one of the huge robotic hands in-game along with a partner, which will grant you unlimited gliders.
You can also cancel the glitch by jumping back onto the hand, launching up in the air. Pretty useful tool to have in tight spots, it must be said, but will likely be patched up soon enough.
As of September 7, Epic Games are yet to note the problem on their Trello board of community issues. There is another issue mentioned, though, which was supposed to be fixed in patch v13.40 – slow redeploy in certain situations.
Soon enough, devs will likely cancel this glitch and make redeploying smoother for all players, so watch this space.

The latest map change in Fortnite Season 4 is here, as the Rift Beacon has opened up to reveal the Marvel Collector Museum on the battle royale island.
The Marvel theme is fully taking over in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4, and we’re really only just getting started.
As well as skins and other cosmetics, the most notable changes are physical additions to the map. This started with the Season 4 update itself, followed by the Black Panther statue and more in the next update.
Now, on September 6, another addition has gone live, this time Marvel’s Collector Museum has spawned in.
It comes from the planet “Knowhere” and appears near Catty’s Corner on the Fortnite map.
As well as the new POI, another Rift beacon has moved into a new stage, which presumably will bring in the next addition to the map.
What exactly this will be, we don’t know yet, but expect even more substantial changes on the way.
All of this ties into the lore too, as the various superheros are believed to be taking control of certain parts of the map, in preparation for the fight with Galactus.
