Under the map

This glitch is not new to Season 8. Under the map glitch allows players to see what’s under the map. Players can even enter the region. As seen in the video, under the map appears to be a place in the sky.

You can plunge straight down or design structures. Falling won’t kill the player as players dive into an ocean. The player in the video swam his way across do different areas of the Fortnite map. While the glitch is harmless and fun, Epic might fix it in the next update.

Slipstream glitch

There are some places on the map that enable players to sneak inside the slipstream. Getting inside these slipstreams makes players invisible to other players. However, getting the glitch to work might be a bit tough. Shooting players from the inside won’t reveal your location. It can be a fun thing to do with your friends.

Levitating Glitch

As the name suggests, this Fortnite Season 8 glitch will let you float above the ground. Players need to visit a spot in the Weeping Woods POI. After reaching the place, players simply need to jump. While the players themselves won’t perceive anything, others will see them hovering over the map. However, you can’t fly anywhere. Rather, you will just hover over an area.

Underwater driving glitch

Thanks to a glitch, players can now drive underwater in Season 8. There are multiple areas on the map where the glitch can be executed. With this glitch, players can take their cars into the water as if it were a submarine. You can sneakily take out other enemies in the vicinity and they won’t be able to spot you.

Sideways Mode Glitch

With this Season 8 glitch, players can give the whole island a sideways-type scary appearance. In order to do this, you will need the sideways to emerge in Dirty Docks. Once it does, you need to walk on the separator line that divides both sections. It will take a couple of tries to get it right.

You will notice the island’s sky turn orange and a spooky effect taking place once you get it to work. Also, you won’t be able to build any structures when the glitch is enabled.

Chicken Spinning Glitch

Chickens have been in Fortnite for a long time now. Season 7 had many missions revolving around them. While Epic has not removed chickens from the game, players can fiddle with it all thanks to a glitch. To see the glitch in all its glory, players need to find a shadow cube and consume it simultaneously while holding the chicken. This will send the chicken spinning on the player’s finger for a while.
