Fortnite: Flying Car Hacker Infects EU Duos Cash Cup

A flying truck cheat resurfaces and subsequently affects the European Duos Cash Cup tournament.


Fortnite Battle Royale players are in a never-ending fight against those who need to gain an unfair advantage. A hacker or cheater is looking to bring down the vibes for every talented competitor on the scene. Epic Games has made countless efforts to thwart these attempts. Unfortunately, cheaters consistently find a way into tournaments. 

Today's European Duos Cash Cup provided another example of deplorable cheaters seeking recognition. Several top professional players took to Twitter with clips depicting a hacker who could instantly eliminate opponents from an invisible car. It's not the first time we've seen such an absurd hack

Four-time Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) winner — Tai "TaySon" Starčič — posted a clip of him falling victim to the hacker during his Cash Cup run. He and duo partner Thomas "Th0masHD" Høxbro Davidsen experienced this cheater's wrath and ultimately failed to qualify for round two of the Cash Cup. While they may not be the primary reason, this offender influenced the outcome of TaySon and Th0masHD's tournament. 

A Different Perspective

Fortnite personality and former competitor Derman "MOTOR" Özdemir shared a clearer perspective of the cheater, who somehow managed back-to-back 60-elimination games in the Cash Cup. The clip shows the cheater and his teammate flying through the air in a semi truck. According to MOTOR, this player somehow eliminated others from 200 meters away. 

It's a bizarre hack that Epic Games has not resolved yet. We can safely assume that Fortnite's anti-cheat software eventually detected and actioned the offender. Still, the player did damage and, quite frankly, ruined the tournament experience for 141 participants. 

Hopefully, Epic continues cracking down on these cheaters to preserve Fortnite's integrity in a competitive setting. That would be the ideal outcome for those who invest time into becoming the best.
