Fortnite player discovers an exploit to counter the lasers in ways nobody imagined
Fortnite's newest season, Last Resort, is now online and has a theme concentrated on heists. These heists feature vaults that house various mythic weapons. However, getting to these vaults is not an easy feat, as numerous lasers and turrets protect them. Lasers are one of the most important aspects of this season, as players saw that with the advent of Season 4, Fortnite’s official Twitter account changed the profile picture to a big "F" with lasers in the background.
These are placed in hallways that lead to the vault, and touching any of them traps you in a jail cell. While it is quite easy to break through these cells with your pickaxe, it gives players leeway to shoot while you’re trapped inside.
Well, you might not have to worry about that, as a Reddit user has found somewhat of a hack, and all it requires you to do is walk.
Getting past the lasers in Fortnite with ease
While players were getting stuck while going through these laser hallways, Redditor "u/geekXpop" discovered that the hack to getting through them was sticking to one corner. As you can see in the video, the player sticks extremely close to the wall and walks straight.
This is a clever way to get through the laser hallway and was appreciated by everyone in the community, as no one had really thought about it.
While no horizontal lasers are featured in the video, it is important to note that in some locations, there will be some of those in your path too, which may require you to jump. It is also crucial to know that the laser variations keep changing, so you will have to plan your run accurately.
Second alternative: Rocket Ram to the rescue
Another easy and straightforward way to get past these lasers is by using the Rocket Ram, which is a utility item added to the game this season. It lets you fly like a battering ram, destroying everything in your path.
You may want to get through these laser rooms for a variety of reasons. Be it to complete the Nolan Chance Quests or to find the mythic weapons such as Midas' Drum Gun or TNTina's Ka-Boom Bow hidden inside the vault. These vaults can be found in the following locations: Sanguine Suites, Eclipsed Estate, and Relentless Retreat.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 has a plethora of features for players to tinker around with. The heist theme and the vaults protected by lasers are just some of the features that go hand in hand, giving the game a "Mission Impossible" or "Ocean's Twelve" feel.
As new hurdles get added to Fortnite, it will be interesting to watch how players tackle them with their wit and creativity.
