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.

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.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

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!
