The new Chug Splash consumable was released with patch v9.30 on June 18, unfortunately, players found a glitch as soon as it dropped.

Fortnite Battle Royale players were happy with June 18’s v9.30 Fortnite update which saw the vaulting of the Boom Bow and the addition of the brand new Chug Splash heal item.

The Chug Splash is a throwable item that will heal any players with 20 health or shield.

Players soon began to report that the item was not working as intended, and sometimes wouldn’t even work.

One user on the FortniteBR subreddit, Scatush, posted a video where he shows that the Chug Splash cannot be used while in a bush.

You can’t get health from Chug Splash if you’re in a bush from r/FortNiteBR

Under Scatush’s post Epic employee ‘M House Epic’ stated that they were “currently looking into this issue.”

Other users hopped onto the thread to also report that the healing item can not be used while in Fatal Fields either.


This isn’t the first time a new weapon or item was added with bugs in Fortnite Battle Royale, unfortunately.

The Shadow Bomb was added in v8.51 back in May, but it released with a game-breaking bug that would cause players to be permanently invisible.

Epic Games are usually quick about fixing bugs and glitches, so we expect the Chug Splash item to be patched sooner rather than later.
