Fortnite's Chiller Trap has only recently landed in-game and players are already creating intricate skate tracks and discovering new ways of quickly sliding away from the storm.

Watching reddit user CruzKMS's skate track in action, below, is oddly mesmerising - as the player slides and bounces their way through a series of carefully constructed tunnels and ramps. It's like a cross between Fortnite, Ninja Warrior and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.

Another impressive Chiller course comes courtesy of Nightpantaloons which contains a rapid fire bounce pad sequence mid way through that'll blow your ice blocks off.

The Chiller's also inspired some more practical uses. Redditor SchwarzENTegger combines a handful of Impulse Grenades with the humble Chiller Trap, and finds that it's an excellent way of gliding across the map in a matter of seconds.

Meanwhile lukedimitriou1738's cooked up a Chiller-inspired jousting course, perfect for donning your Knight skins and seeing which one of you comes out on top.

This certainly isn't the first time Fortnite players have found unique uses for new in-game items, as players have previously tried to replicate Mario Kart in Fortnite.
