In case you somehow missed this detail, the sharks in Fortnite are, in fact, loot sharks. This means that if you kill one (before it kills you), you'll get a weapon and some ammo, and there's a good chance it will be a Legendary weapon. The downside? It takes quite a bit of time and more than a few bullets to kill a loot shark, often making it a risky activity. That is, unless you have Dr. Doom's Arcane Gauntlets and Mystical Bomb.

Epic owes Fortnite fans honesty in Apple feud

For weeks now, two tech giants have been going head to head over what might just be the most popular game in the world. Epic and Apple have been squaring off over the iOS App Store and the fees and restrictions that Apple imposes on developers who want to distribute apps through that store, with Fortnite caught in the crossfire.

Fortnite Season 4 is just getting started, but players have already figured out a way to exploit an already-powerful hero weapon: the Gauntlet.

Is your favorite online game as fragile as Fortnite?

Is your favorite online game as fragile as Fortnite?
