A Fortnite fan has uncovered a strange movement glitch in the snow biome that will leave players skating around with little control.
While Fortnite Battle Royale might just be the most popular multiplayer game in the world, that doesn’t mean it’s completely perfect and without faults.
We’ve already seen problems with newly released items like the Zapper Trap and even with Turbo Building. Yet, now there’s a new problem that has reared its head – and it will leave players confused about where they stand within the snow part of the map.
In a post to the Fortnite Competitive subreddit, user CapoCracko showcased a video of their movement from a recent game that was strangely bugged.
As the player moved around the snow biome of the map, they were left floating instead of walking or sliding down the mountain. The game wasn’t completely broken, however, as they were able to build and use shockwave grenades to increase their mobility, but the floating movement issue remained.
Other members of the subreddit chimed in – noting that it wasn’t a one-off issue and was affecting them too, with some even revealing that it was even prompting their elimination from a match.
Had this happen the other day, eventually through spamming builds and jumping I was able to get out right before the storm hit me. Pretty amazing that there’s places like this on the map, stated mj91288. Another SpeedyB04, added: “Lmao I’ve been stuck there twice gotta fix the mountain.”
Some users also suggested that it could very well link to the Rift Beacons that have appeared on the Frozen Lake where Greasy Grove used to stand.
However, even though Epic Games have been active on Reddit in the past, they have yet to address this issue so it’s unknown if they are aware of the problem or if a fix is in place.
