The most recent Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 update took players to a futuristic map with the Mega City POI and landmarks inspired by Asian Sakura Art. Loopers also have a slew of new weapons and equipment to experiment with, the most unique and favored of which is the Kinetic Blade.
A recently discovered glitch allows players to phase through builds using the Kinetic Blade. Here's how it works in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2.
Fortnite glitch lets players phase through walls using the Kinetic Blade in Chapter 4 Season 2
Popular content creator Reisshub recently discovered a glitch with the new Kinetic Blade that allows players to phase through walls when using the Dash Attack functionality. Players in Chapter 4 Season 2 have been using this loophole to surprise opponents with swift attacks. The blade is also useful for traveling great distances across the Fortnite map.
However, players must take specific steps to pull off the glitch, which is being referred to as the 22-meter Kinetic Blade exploit. It requires users to utilize the item when at a specific distance from any wall.
With the Dash Attack ability of the Kinetic Blade, players may advance a total of 25 meters, as reported by Reisshub. While a player's dash alone may not be able to destroy an opponent's wall or structure completely, it does inflict enough damage for players to be able to smash through with a pickaxe.
The exploit, on the other hand, is self-sufficient. Before taking advantage of the glitch, you must identify and mark the wall you wish to phase through and then move 21-22 meters away from it. You may use the marker you just affixed to the wall to gauge your distance from the structure.
Equip the Kinetic Blade when you're exactly 22 meters away and hit your Dash Attack key. As you dash, you'll break into the enemy's box, phasing through the wall obstructing your path.
It is important to note that the phasing glitch will not work unless you are located between 21-22 meters away from the wall. Moreover, there's a brief delay before you can switch to a weapon and eliminate the enemy inside the box.
When you phase in, you are at risk of being hit by the player inside the box and thus eliminated from the game. However, if you break through directly behind your opponent, as shown by Destiny in the above clip, you may be able to kill them with a weapon designed for use at close range in Fortnite.
Since its release, Fortnite's player base has been quick to take advantage of the game's numerous glitches and bugs to get an edge in the Battle Royale mode. Such strategies have often been used to win games and defeat opponents since there are many exploits and workarounds offered by the large variety of items and weapons.
Some famous exploits in Fortnite Battle Royale games include the famed Double Pump, Stinger Pray-N-Spray, One-Shot snipers, and even the limitless Shockwave Hammer glitch.
