All confirmed bugs and issues that still need to be patched in Fortnite

Published

on

Fortnite fans have put together a list of all the bugs and glitches that they are waiting for to be patched.

With new updates being released on a weekly basis, there are times when new bugs or glitches may accidentally take form in-game.

Season 7 saw the addition of various new points of interest, items, weapons, and other forms of content, however, some have experienced a collection of issues.

Most notably, the X4 Stormwing plane and Zip Lines have a number of glitches and bugs attached to them, causing community members to question when they will be fixed.

We have compiled a full list of all the known glitches in Fortnite: Battle Royale at the time of writing – December 26, 2018.

  • X-4 Storming
    • While spectating, you may notice players appear in the skydiving stance while traversing the map.
    • Player models do not replicate properly when switching between teammates while spectating. This may cause models to appear to jump around or fall off the wings while on the Stormwing.
    • Player models appear to detach from the Stormwing when scrubbing replays.
      If put in the Down But Not Out state while riding in the Stormwing, teammates can appear in the skydiving state.
    • The Stormwing can be seen in low level of detail when its speed increases. This can hide the Boost gauge on mobile devices.
    • Using Custom Keybindings for movement can disrupt the Stormwing’s controls.
    • Stormwing health bars can only be seen when in close proximity to the plane.
  • Zipline
    • You may lose the ability to sprint if you emote while riding on a Zipline.
    • You may notice inconsistencies with player character models while on Ziplines.
    • You may sometimes fall from the Zipline under certain network conditions or if structures are built close to a Zipline while a player is on it.
  • Scoreboard
    • The scoreboard does not always accurately update and display the proper elimination count.
    • There are instances in which the scoreboard will not display anything when attempting to view it.
  • Forced direction walking after editing a structure
    • Confirming an edit while holding WASD (or other directional inputs) will force a player to continue walking in that direction.
    • Workaround: Find another structure to edit, confirm the edit when not holding a directional input, confirm that edit.
  • Increase in PC Crashes
    • We’re investigating reports of an increase in PC crashes, primarily on Intel drivers. If you’re experencing crashing please update to the latest driver version which is v25.20.100.6323.
    • Workaround: Update your drivers to version v25.20.100.6323 or higher
  • Auto shooting when using a gamepad
    • Players who use a controller can sometimes be put into a state in which they continuously shoot or swing their pickaxe. This only happens in specific situations.
    1. Enter Battle Royale
    2. Begin any match
    3. Land in any part of the map
    4. Gather materials
    5. Get any trap
    6. Press and hold any of the build button (LB, LT, RB or RT) while quickly switching to trap then weapons.
    7. Players must specifically press and hold any of the build button (LB, LT, RB or RT) while quickly switching to trap then a weapon in exact order
    8. Does not happen with a keyboard, but happens on PC if a controller is connected to it.
  • Workaround: Switching to build and building any structure cancels the auto-fire

Aim Assist not working properly against vehicles and the Mounted Turret

  • When using Aim Assist against vehicles and the Mounted turret, the crosshair is pulled towards the bottom of the vehicles/Turret rather than focusing on the player occupying it.
  • Music for certain emotes not playing
    • The music for certain emotes is not playing on the 1st usage. The music should play properly upon subsequent uses of affected emotes.
      • The Worm
      • Dance Moves
      • Drop the Bass
      • Default
    • Workaround: Use the emote once, then use it again
  • Crosshairs blacked for certain Outfits while aiming
    • Crosshairs may be blocked when using certain Outfits while aiming down sights. We’re aware of this issue and working towards a fix.

Fortnite Chapter 3 has just entered its second season, and it’s off to a great start. Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ended without much warning ahead of time from Epic Games. In fact, only a day before the Season ended did we get an announcement for Season 2.

Regardless, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is off to a hot start. We have new POIs, weapons, and a flashy new Battle Pass. There’s also no building to start and an ongoing turf war.

Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 End?

fortnite season 2 the foundation destroyed

Fortnite Season 2 will end on June 3, 2022. This means the second season of the new chapter will last a little less than three months making it fairly short compared to Season 1.

This end date was found in the in-game files by data miners. Unlike last season where Epic Games listed two season end dates, there is only one end date this time around.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Start?

New Fortnite seasons usually start within 24 hours after the previous one ends. Players can expect Chapter 3 Season 3 to start on June 4.

That being said, leaker Shiina believes there will be an extended period of downtime after the season ends to prep for Season 3. We will know more about this delay as time draws closer.

Is There a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event?

The final update for Fortnite Season 2 is here and we now have confirmation that, yes, there will be a live event!

The Season 2 live event will likely focus on stopping the new Doomsday Device from going off at Loot Lake. It is a very similar tower to that of Midas’ Doomsday Device in Chapter 2 Season 2.

What Season is Fortnite on?

Fortnite is currently in Chapter 3 Season 2. This is the second season of the third chapter which started after Chapter 2 Season 8. While most players refer to this season as “Season 2”, it’s technically Season 20.

There were 10 seasons in Chapter 1 and 8 seasons in Chapter 2.

For now, that’s everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. This chapter will likely span the next year or so and will be filled with exciting events.

We will keep you updated on when Fortnite Season 3 starts. For more Fortnite, check out the best controller settings for Chapter 3, and stay tuned for more news and guides.

Fortnite Season 2 adds not one but two Marvel characters to the game via the Battle Pass, but players might not be familiar with Prowler.

Season 2 started off hot with an amazing battle pass and a shocking removal of the game’s iconic building mechanic. Players were even more excited to see the Battle Pass had two crossover characters.

The first is Doctor Strange who has a new movie releasing in May. However, players may not be super familiar with the second crossover character. And it was surprisingly released alongside the Fortnite v20.20 update.

Prowler is an alias used by a number of people in the Marvel universe. But he most recently appeared in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse as Miles Morales’ uncle. And the in-game skin is a similar depiction of the character.
