How To Use The Fortnite Infinite Hammer Jump Glitch

Whether you're playing an indie game or a AAA battle royale like Fortnite, it's only a matter of time before some glitches are discovered by the community surrounding them. A recent Fortnite glitch that players have discovered allows you to use the newly added Shockwave Hammer to jump around the map as many times as you want. 

If this glitch, called the "Infinite Hammer Jump Glitch" sounds like a lot of fun (spoilers, it is) and you want to try it out yourself, then we have you covered. As this article will break down exactly what the Infinite Hammer Jump Glitch is in Fortnite and how to do it. 

What Is the Infinite Hammer Jump Glitch in Fortnite?

The Shockwave Hammer gives you the ability to slam the hammer into the ground and launch yourself into the air while dealing some damage to any enemy standing too close, however, it does have a cooldown time and can't be used more than 5 times consecutively, well that is until now. The infinite hammer jump glitch breaks the mechanic and allows you to repeatedly land and launch yourself over and over again while dealing damage to anyone nearby.

This glitch, while fun to do, has been the source of controversy in the Fortnite community. As players are complaining that it's ruining the balance of the game since a player using it can easily one-shot you when they land near you or easily avoid taking damage, since moving this quickly makes you almost impossible to hit. 

The developers at Epic Games have likely heard these complaints, making it only a matter of time before the glitch is patched out and removed from the game. So if you want to try it before then, read below as we'll walk you through how to do it while you still can. 

How To Do The Infinite Hammer Jump Glitch in Fortnite

The Infinite Hammer Glitch is fairly simple to understand but its execution can be slightly tricky to pull off. To do it, players will need to use the jump ability of the Shockwave Hammer in the ocean or any body of water, which you can do by finding or building a small platform above it to jump from, then smack the water with your hammer to launch yourself.

Once you're in the air, you'll need to land on any ground surface that isn't water to continuously jump, and voila, you're doing the infinite hammer jump glitch. This may sound simple, but it can be tricky to pull off, so you'll likely need to practice a bit before getting it right. Below we've also embedded a video of the glitch being performed to help you pull it off.
