Fortnite Season 2 bugs let you bounce rockets and dance with propane

Some new Fortnite Season 2 bugs have appeared that are a bit more lighthearted than others.

Some new Fortnite Season 2 bugs have appeared that are a bit more lighthearted than others.

Bugs are an unfortunate byproduct of patches in every game. Fortnite, at times, feels more prone to bugs than other games, but that’s mostly because of the sheer number of updates. Thankfully, a lot of these patches are designed to fix bugs from previous releases.

As expected, Fortnite Season 2 came out with a long list of bugs attached. You couldn’t gift the Battle Pass, party-assisted challenges weren’t working, and players were falling through the map. Epic has addressed some of the issues, but others remain in the game.

More recently, though, players began to uncover some bugs that were less serious than some of the ones reported earlier. Two of the recent reports deal with bouncing rockets and carrying a propane tank all game long.

The first one was discovered by several players, but SypherPK brought it to the attention of the masses. He was playing a game with NickMercs when someone in his chat noticed something strange.

Apparently, a rocket bounced off of one of their walls. It turns out that you can bounce a rocket off of a brick of C4. Since then, other streamers have used the bug to create trickshots, like this one from Nick Eh 30.

The ability to bounce rockets off of C4 is almost certainly unintended, but the cool clips are enough for me to want it to stay in the game.

The other glitch is arguably more amusing. For some reason, the game doesn’t allow you to bring propane tanks from The Rig past a certain point. When you bring the tank past that point and place it on the ground, it gets permanently attached to your hand.

This is horrible if you’re trying to win the game. You can kiss your aim goodbye with the tank taking up 70% of your screen while ADS. As this video shows, though, the glitch makes for some hilarious emote opportunities.

Epic employee Louigilou2 commented on this Reddit post, saying, “Don’t shake the propane, Bobby! Thanks for the report, sending it to our QA team to look into.”

There are a lot of bugs in the game, though, and this one is pretty specific. It probably won’t be at the top of Epic’s list. Bugs will probably always be a part of Fortnite. At least we can have a chuckle at these.

Epic Games & Loserfruit postpone her Fortnite Icon Series skin

Streamer, Loserfruit, has announced that she and Epic have decided to postpone the release of her Icon Series Fortnite skin.

The entire world is reeling in the wake of the protests and demonstrations surrounding the murder of George Floyd. There are, certainly, more important things going on than Fortnite, but that’s what we’re here to talk about.

Many fans are speculating that Epic will add a further delay to Season 3, following the announced delays of the PS5 new Call of Duty Season. Epic have yet to speak out on this topic, so we should expect the event to take place on June 6 until we hear otherwise.

One thing that has been delayed is the newest addition to the Fortnite Icon Series. Leaks pointed to a Loserfruit skin hitting the Item Shop this week. The streamer even posted a cryptic message on her Instagram story, signaling that the skin would be released on June 3.

Loserfruit logged onto her stream on June 3 and to update her fans and explain why her Icon Series skin wouldn’t be in the shop. “Me and Epic decided it wasn’t the right time to release the skin, this week,” she said.

“I think you guys know from leaks,” the streamer chuckled, “that it was meant to come out on the third. So we decided to wait.”

The delay is an understandable one for several reasons. Getting your own skin in a video game is a big deal, and Loserfruit would undoubtedly feel guilty for celebrating her accomplishments in a time like this. As we said, there are far more important things happening than anything related to Fortnite.

We can expect to see the skin hit the Item Shop within the next couple of weeks. We still have no news on whether or not Season 3 will be released as planned. We’ll keep you updated on all of these topics as more information comes out.

Bizarre Fortnite bug causes an infinite no-storm game

This Fortnite player experienced an infinite game due to a new and rare glitch.

Fortnite Storm

There have always been – and always will be – bugs in Fortnite. There will be bugs in every game, but they can be more frustrating in competitive ones. Some bugs are fun and good for a laugh, while others make you want to Summit your monitor.

This bug falls in between these categories – equally annoying and intriguing. One Fortnite player experienced a new and rare bug that caused the storm to stay away from the island. He reportedly played for an hour, clearing out the lobby and searching for the last person, before calling it quits and letting a bush-camper win.

This bizarre glitch was likely caused by Midas’ tinkering with the storm. The storm circles have been strange since the last Fortnite update – mirroring those of Warzone before shrinking to a smaller, more familiar circle.

Theories have it that this is the work of Midas, who is trying to prevent or otherwise mess with the storm ahead of the Doomsday Event.

In this match, u/woofblah spent his time collecting all of the mythic weapons he could carry. He also traveled a reported 28km searching for his final target before eliminating himself and seeing a bush camper in the corner of the map.

This is the first time that we’ve seen such a glitch, so it has to be rare. Again, it’s likely that the bug was triggered by the updated storm.

Let us know if this issue becomes more widespread. In a game like this, it becomes a war of attrition. How bad do you want the win? More than the kid in the bush? Probably not.

Leak

Fortnite Season 3 leak reveals more details about the flood

New Fortnite Season 3 leaks promise a progressively lower water level over the course of the season.

Published

The internet was buzzing, yesterday, when the PlayStation store accidentally released a promotional image for Fortnite Season 3. We can give them the benefit of the doubt that they weren’t prepared for a last-minute extension, but they would still have been early by two days early.

The leaked image was small but it was enough to virtually confirm the rumors of a map-wide flood and begin some new rumors about a potential SpongeBob crossover.

YouTuber, Tabor Hill, was the primary creator who was providing us with leaked information ahead of Season 3. His source gave him information about Party Royale, the flood, and the Season 3 Battle Pass before any of it had been released or corroborated by additional information.

He came back with a video on June 1, following the PlayStation Store’s leaked image. The video covered many of his original leaks and the theories surrounding the new image but added some additional information on top.

To those who are worried about the entire map being covered in water, Tabor Hill said, “Epic knows what they’re doing … You’re not going to be completely on water, don’t worry.” He also added another piece of information that he withheld in his original video: the water level will go down as the season progresses and “eventually return to normal.”

(3:30 for mobile viewers)

To add a bit of intrigue to the end of his video, Tabor Hill told his viewers that, “One or two new locations may reveal themselves.”

So, according to these leaks, the water level will lower over the course of the season – similar to how the snow has melted in past winter events. This makes perfect sense and we could see it happening this way.

Hopefully, however, the beginning of the season doesn’t use the current swimming mechanics that we have in the game. “SpongeBob physics” underwater would be an ideal middle-ground if the entire map is flooded, as we covered in a separate article.

All of this information will be proven true or false on June 11. We’ll keep you covered with more rumors, leaks, and more as we wait for the event and new season.
