A bug which allows players to infinitely duplicate fish in Fortnite has now caught the eyes of the game’s developers.
With it’s many complicated mechanics, regular updates and ever-evolving map, Fortnite has always been susceptible to unintended glitches. Whilst some issues go unresolved for extended than fans would really like , others are completely game-breaking and need immediate attention.
One such exploit which has become increasingly “popular” over the last few days is that the infinite item glitch. This lets people spawn a vast number of fish and potentially other consumables.
Of course, by abusing this strategy, players can out-heal the storm indefinitely and win any match they need . it’s clear that this was an accident on Epic’s part, and not something that anyone should consider trying.
The @FortniteStatus Twitter account has now confirmed that Motorboats are temporarily disabled. These boats were reportedly wont to achieve the infinite item glitch.
Hopefully, this suggests that the exploit is not any longer possible, which Epic Games are performing on finding an answer . With cars still yet to be added, and lots of of the Season 3 whirlpools now gone, players will want this key sort of mobility added back soon.
Competitive Fortnite player @WafflesFN was disqualified from a recent event and given a short lived ban after tweeting a clip which featured the glitch.
However, it had been not waffles that used the exploit. After eliminating an enemy, he noticed 100k+ Crash Pads within the pile of loot. Whilst some fans defend Waffles, others support the ban, saying that he shouldn’t have picked up the Crash Pads.
If you encounter a glitch like this yourself, it’s always best to report it straight to Epic. This helps them to know what the difficulty is and fix it as quickly as possible.
