Epic Games has acknowledged an issue with Fortnite’s Buried Treasure item which causes treasure to be inaccessible.

The Buried Treasure item was added via Patch v8.01 and aims to give players yet another way to obtain high-value loot in Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode.

A video has since surfaced on /r/FortniteBR showing a bug which causes the Buried Treasure to be placed between the new Volcanic Vents, causing it to become unobtainable.

Sean Hamilton (MrPopoTFS), Community Coordinator at Epic Games, responded to the post with the following statement…

We’ll never know what treasures were hidden under that vent. I’ve gone ahead and reported this issue to our QA team, thanks for the video!

For those unaware, typically Buried Treasure is found in a random location on the Fortnite map. Each game, players who are lucky enough to find the map are given a chance to find and obtain the loot.

Follow the map to uncover hidden loot across the island! Find the X that marks the spot and get to digging

While this is a fairly uncommon bug, it’s likely a handful of players have experienced it. While not confirmed, the next patch is likely to fix the issue.

    • Obviously people are going to complain about this. It needs fixed. No one wants to spend their time searching for a treasure they can’t dig up.

  1. Another complaint and bug I have had with the map and specially the pumps you get from the buried treasure is like a few minutes later after having obtained it. It random is deleted or replaced by a green pump despite me not picking up anything to replace the weapon. My girl told me the same thing has happened to her before

  2. Spot on with this write-up, I seriously believe this website needs far more attention. I’ll probably be returning to read more, thanks for the advice!
