A new exploit allows you to peak and shoot without putting yourself at risk by canceling your crouch animation. Look out for head glitchers.
Fortnite players are constantly finding exploits - as is the case with any game that gets to the top of the charts.
Most of the Fortnite exploits have to do with getting inside someone's box. You can use ramp tricks, Flint Knocks, and phase exploits to bust your way in there from several different angles. Very few - if any - of these will ever get patched out of existence.
Remember back in the day when we all saw Tfue using the crouch-shot trick to get kills without exposing himself? That was technically an exploit and Epic eventually got rid of it.
A version of this strategy appears to be back, however. You can cancel your crouch animation by hitting your ADS button at the same time, allowing you to peak, shoot, and duck instantly.
It had to have taken some serious testing to find this exploit, and it will undoubtedly take practice to master. It's a situational strategy and doesn't look like it will work too well when using an assault rifle.
This seems like an intricate exploit as well, so Epic probably won't be patching it for some time.
Still, if you see someone doing this to you, it's best to cover up instead of engaging.
