Ridiculous Fortnite Storm Bug Is Shooting Players Into The Abyss

Ridiculous Fortnite Storm Bug Is Shooting Players Into The Abyss

A new Fortnite storm bug is causing problems in Chapter 2 Season 4 as the Marvel-themed event has introduced a strange glitch where players are being sucked into the abyss and their own certain doom. There's no denying Season 4 has been a huge hit for Epic Games - at a time the developer could do with a boost.

Although iOS players haven't been able to try out the Marvel update due to Epic's ongoing legal battle with Apple, everyone else has been enjoying all the comic book chaos. Unfortunately, the latest glitch looks like it's linked to the unique abilities of the Marvel heroes. 

Season 4 set the ball rolling with eight unique Marvel skins and the introduction of Thor, Iron Man, She-Hulk, Wolverine, Storm, Mystique, Groot, and Doctor Doom. The Silver Surfer was a late addition, while the heroes and villains have continued to wage war of the Galactus. Whether you want to use the Silver Surfer's Board, Groot's Bramble Shield, or Doctor Doom's Arcane Gauntlets, you might think again given the Fortnite storm bug. Unfortunately, the hero abilities are royally broken and affecting the entire map. 

 

Posting on Reddit, u/Xientraa shared footage of Thor happily going about his business before he suddenly sucked into the abyss of the storm with no way of getting back. The logical guess right now is that it has something to do with Groot's Bramble Shield.

One fan wrote, "My guess is that when it’s activated while a player is in the radius of the ball, the game assumes that they have been hit so hard with the ball that they are inside it. As a result, the knock back is multiplied, and sends them flying". It makes sense, but as of right now, Epic hasn't commented on the issue. Either way, we'd steer clear of getting to close to standing on top of someone unless you want to vacation into the eye of the storm.

The Fortnite storm bug comes just after players found a workaround to get unlimited hero abilities. It turns out the 15-second cooldown is attached to specific players - rather than an item. Pro players working in squads have been making the most of the exploit by picking up a mythic Marvel item, using the ability, and then dropping it to a teammate. By the time it's been passed around the squad, the original player's cooldown should've finished.

As it stands, the storm bug isn't listed on the Fortnite Community Issues Trello board. A new update is expected next week, so it looks like we're probably going to be stuck with this one until 21. It's hardly the "marvellous" mood Epic wanted to set with its comic book crossover.
