Fortnite receives new items at a dizzying speed and that means the chance for bugs and glitches is considerably high. The latest bug involves the new Chug Splash and its healing capabilities.
Due to Epic Games’ high intensity development schedules, bugs for new weapons and items do tend to slip through. Thankfully, the studio makes it their business to quickly root out and fix these issues.

The v9.30 patch brought with it the Chug Splash healing item. Though it’s a wonderful addition, a recently discovered bug will hinder players when trying to use it.
Bushes prevent Chug Splash healing
For those that have not had a chance to use the new healing item, let’s do a quick recap.
The Chug Splash heals players, allies, and enemies for 20 health/shield within a radius of effect. Think of it as a kind of healing explosive. Players can hold a maximum of 6 in a single inventory stack. The item can be found in Floor Loot, Chests, and Supply Drops.
Unfortunately, the items healing effect becomes bugged when it’s applied to a player with inside of a bush.
The bug applies to all variations of healing from the Chug Splash. For example, healing will not be applied to ‘bushed’ targets whether they are an ally or an enemy.
Obviously, this has a serious negative impact for teamplay. Until the bug is fixed, Chug Splash should not be used to heal allies in a bush. Conversely, it is currently completely safe to throw the cans when enemies (with a bush) are in range as it will not heal them.
Looking at the possible causes for the glitch, the most obvious one points to the bush’s parameter to take a single shot/source of damage before being disabled.
We suspect that the game’s logic is thinking that the bush should prevent the projectile’s “damage” aka healing in this special case. But, as the player receives 0 damage, the bush is not removed. At least, that’s what it looks like from the outside.
The bug applies to both healing and gaining shields. Epic Games has not made any official statement about this glitch at this time. We will update you on any fixes to this issue as soon as more information is released.
Why Fortnite Sideways Anomalies are insanely overpowered
The new Sideways Anomalies in Fortnite Season 8 are ridiculously overpowered. Here is how players can use them to their advantage.
The new Sideways Anomalies introduced at the start of Fortnite Season 8 are ridiculously overpowered. Here’s why you need to be visiting these anomalies.
Fortnite Season 8 is off to a weird start. Where the past few seasons had themes that were easy to understand, Season 8 is a black swan.
With Cubed being the Season 8 title theme, a bunch of Kevin Cubes have popped up all over the map. Like in Chapter 1, these cubes roll around the map leaving destruction in their wake. But there’s even more to this season’s madness.
Epic Games also threw in the new Sideways biomes. These are zit-lit bubbles that appear on the map that are infested with dangerous creatures. However, the Sideways Anomalies are smaller biomes that are game-changing additions to Fortnite.
What are Sideways Anomalies in Fortnite?
There are two ways players can enter The Sideways in Fortnite Season 8. The first and most popular is via The Sideways biome that appears on one of the POIs at the start of every match. These biomes do not disappear, and they are heavily populated by players and monsters.
However, The Sideways biomes are not as accessible or rewarding as the Sideways Anomalies. Sideways Anomalies appear as purple rift-like markers on the map, and there are three on the map at all times.
When approached, the rifts will expand and create a smaller Sideways biome. Cube Monsters will begin to spawn, and players will be able to spend a small amount of time inside the anomaly before it closes. Once the Sideways Anomaly closes, another one will appear on the map.
Why Sideways Anomalies overpowered
Aside from the larger Sideways biome, players tend to ignore the Fortnite Sideways Anomalies. However, players should visit every Sideways Anomaly they can. Here’s a list of reasons players should visit the Sideways Anomalies.
- Siphon health from Cube Monster eliminations
- Easily get max ammo from Cube Monsters
- Easy way to get Mythic Sideways Weapons
Every time a player kills a Cube Monster, they will gain health and shield. And since the Cube Monsters are easy to kill, players can get full health and shield super quickly. As well, Cube Monsters drop a lot of ammo when eliminated.
Players can also get overpowered Mythic Sideways weapons after visiting 1 or 2 Sideways Anomalies. But what makes these so overpowered is the small number of players that visit them.
Yes, you can get all of these benefits from the large Sideways biomes, but it’s unlikely that you’ll encounter an opponent at Fortnite Sideways Anomalies. Having a biome all to yourself takes the edge off of getting geared up.

When Fortnite Season 9 starts and Chapter 2 Season 8 ends
Here is when Fortnite Season 8 ends and Chapter 2 Season 9 starts. The season is off to a wild start, and it’s only going to get crazier.
Fortnite Season 8 just started, but it might not be your cup of tea. Here is when Fortnite Season 8 ends and Season 9 starts.
Fortnite Season 7 was out of this world in the most literal sense. But Fortnite Season 8 is even wilder. From a map filled with cubes to mysterious alternate realities, it’s already surpassed Season 7 on the crazy scale.
But that doesn’t mean Season 8 is for everyone. Some players are already asking when Fortnite Season 8 ends and season 9 starts. This article will answer both those questions and more!
Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.
When Does Fortnite Season 8 End?
Fortnite Season 8 will end on December 5, 2021. This will allow for Fortnite Season 9 to start just-in-time for the annual Holiday event.
Since Fortnite is reaching a climactic point in its overarching storyline, players can expect an end-of-season event. Fortnite Season 7 featured an interactive experience, and a similar event will likely be held at the end of Season 8.
When Does Fortnite Season 9 Start?
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 9 will start on December 6, 2021. Keeping with the recent trend, Fortnite Season start the day after the current season ends. It wouldn’t make sense for Epic Games to delay the start of Season 9 past December 6th.
Fortnite has made a habit recently of jumping from one season to the next with no breaks in between. There will likely be some downtime between Season 8 and 9, and it could be as long as 13 hours like the end of Season 7.
Is There a Fortnite Season 8 Live Event?
As of right now, we don’t know. We likely won’t know anything about a live event until close to the end of Fortnite Season 8. However, we will keep this article updated with the latest information.
What Season is Fortnite on?
Fortnite is currently in Chapter 2 Season 8. This is the eighth season of the second chapter which started after Chapter 1 Season 10. While most players refer to this season as “Season 8”, it’s technically Season 18.
As well, the Fortnite Crew Pack is starting a storyline connected to Midas that will span the next three months. This is the same time frame that Fortnite Season 8 will take place. This means the new Fortnite season could be related to another one of Midas’ plans.
