Fortnite bug is randomly sending people into the storm

This new Fortnite Season 4 bug is sending players to another dimension when they get too close to an opponent.

Fortnite Storm China Change

Fortnite Season 4 introduced a handful of new mechanics to the game, which undoubtedly caused a few new bugs. It took players about a week to diagnose some of the major issues with the latest patch, which is a good thing when you think about it. The issues weren’t so glaring that players noticed them all on day one.

We’ve already covered an exploit that allows teams to use an unlimited number of hero abilities, but that seems more like an overlooked mechanic rather than a full-fledged bug. This one, on the other hand, is a pretty big problem.

Fortnite players are getting randomly sent deep into the storm while battling someone. The bug seems to randomly trigger, and it yeets players so deep that they have no chance of recovering. Here’s an example from u/Xientraa on Reddit.

This example is one of the more extreme ones that we’ve seen, but it isn’t the only clip. There are three or four more of these on the r/FortniteBR subreddit, and no one seems to know exactly what is happening.

The leading theory surrounding this glitch has to do with the Groot Baller. Players are saying that the knock-back effect on this item is sending players far away when initially activated.

Although we can’t know for sure, this theory makes sense as the glitch only seems to happen when two players are on top of one another. The opponent could have activated the Groot Baller to send these players flying, but we never see it happen.

This is a new bug and isn’t listed on the Fortnite Community Issues Trello board. With an update expected next week, we’ll likely be dealing with this until September 21 – judging by the typical Fortnite patch schedule.

There’s nothing we can do about this bug other than to raise awareness. Be careful “barrel stuffing” your opponents – especially if you know that they have the Groot Baller. Stay safe, gamers!

How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.

Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
