There are now two locations in Fortnite that can instantly result in your death. Be careful out there.
Just one day after discovering an instadeath location near the fork and knife spot in Fortnite, another spot has been discovered.
A Week 2 challenge asks players to land at The Block but that might prove to be your death depending on where you go once you land there.
There is a spot by The Block right now that can instantly eliminate you, just like the previous instadeath spot.
Second insta death spot found. First discovered while in the new tournament mode, verified after. In a divot in the grass by the wall. Only happens when crouched/crouching. from FortNiteBR
Epic Games responded to this bug and encouraged players to stay away from the area.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention! We’re actively working on a fix for this issue. In the meantime, we recommend you avoid crouching near this particular wall,” wrote MrPopoTFS on Reddit.
It’s worth pointing out you have to be crouching to get eliminated here so it’s not quite as deadly as the fork and knife spot.
New patches has introduced bugs in the past but it appears the v8.01 has created some major bugs.
These are just two instakill spots that have been discovered but it’s definitely not out of the realm of possibility more are out there.
We’ll share more information about fixes to these two spots as it becomes available.
In the meantime, you should be careful where you tread.
