Fortnite always has a handful of active glitches – as does nearly every game that provides regular updates. It’s a game of whack-a-mole to some degree; the developers squash one glitch and two more pop up. As a community, all we can hope is that the glitches aren’t game-breaking and don’t affect our enjoyment of Fortnite.
There are a few glitches in the game, right now. Just today, Fortnite players discovered a glitch with the Storm hero ability that allows you to fly around the map for about 20 seconds. Thankfully, however, this and the bulk of the other known glitches that are currently in Fortnite don’t have a drastic effect on who survives a fight.
One glitch, publicized by YouTuber OrangeGuy, is the ideal kind of Fortnite glitch. It has no affect on gameplay but is entertaining to those who use it. The glitch allows you to use your bare hands as a pickaxe.
To complete this glitch, you’ll need to own the Pom Pom or Hulk Hands pickaxes. Epic may add more pickaxes like these, but they’re the only two that will work, for now. After equipping one of these, finishing the glitch is simple. All you need to do is throw up an emoticon and quickly use a throw-able emote. This will remove the pickaxe and let you punch structures for materials with your bare hands.
As the video states, you will fix the glitch if you emote again, but you can always go back by completing the process a second time.
This glitch could stay in the game indefinitely, as it has 0 impact on anything related to competitive integrity. There are almost always bigger fish to fry when it comes to fixing issues in Fortnite. It’s just a fun way to show off to your friends and get them to ask how you did it. Enjoy!
