If you play Fortnite, there is a good chance that you have encountered the infamous ‘walking dead’ glitch.
The glitch in question is relatively new and was first seen midway through Season 6, and occurs after a player has killed an enemy.
Even after they are eliminated, the opponent may still be sown as walking around or standing in-place which can lead to some confusion. Some players have reported seeing various cosmetics from eliminated players on the Fortnite map, including Back Bling, Pickaxes, and more.
On November 28, Epic Games announced that they are ‘investigating’ the issue, however, also called on Fortnite players and community members to help solve the glitch.
Players are encouraged to report the issue via the drop-down menu, along with recording short video clips of the issue when it arises.
Recommended directions for submitting in-game logs to help fix the glitch can be viewed below.
‘After eliminating a player, their model will continue to move for a short period of time.’
