Fortnite's shopping carts are here: What you need to know

The suit, which if successful could see Epic Games banned from selling the game in Korea and forced to pay royalties to PUBG, comes at the same time as PUBG admits that performance improvements for the game haven't been forthcoming. All that has changed, as Epic Games introduces "shopping carts". "The killfeed displays each death as a Shopping Cart kill, attributed to the player who fell through the map".

The new Fortnite Week 5 loading screen blockbuster challenge was leaked early by dataminers and shared online. Shopping Carts are in, you and a friend can ride in them, and you can shoot from them too. Epic Games could have potentially sealed their own fate however by publicly announcing their motivation from PUBG to create their own battle royale mode; using another game's brand to promote your own may be subject to legal penalty - another limb protected under copyright law.

As no other week 5 challenges require you to drop in Moisty Mire this might be easy to grab without having to fight off other player.

These shopping carts can be found scattered around the world.

It has filed an injunction against Epic Games in a South Korean court, but it is not clear yet if it is hoping to have Fortnite shut down.
