Fortnite: Second bugged location is killing players instantly

The number of deadly bugged locations seems to be stacking up in Fortnite Season 8, as some players have found another place where they’re being instantly eliminated from the game – The Block. 

Epic Games have already warned players against dropping at a spot near Fatal Fields called ‘Fork Knife,’ after the game’s online community complained about being kicked out of sessions after landing there. 

Now, though, there seems to be another destination in the battle royale mode that’s causing players problems. 

Epic GamesEpic warned players about landing next to the bugged ‘Fork Knife’ location on March 6.

A video, which was posted to the Fortnite subreddit by user SlevinVega, seems to show yet another place on the map that many players will want to avoid in their search for a win. 

“Second insta death spot found,” the redditor declared. “[It was] first discovered while in the new tournament mode and verified after.” 

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 r/FortNiteBR

The spot seems to be in a “divot” in the grass near The Block, as seen above. Once the player moves into a crouching position and approaches the wall, they’re eliminated from the game. 

While this might not be as big an issue as Fork Knife, it could potentially cost players their chance of going on to win. 

Epic have revealed plans to introduced a fix for the Fork Knife issues, but the developer is yet to respond to the thread on Reddit and there’s nothing to suggest – at this stage – that a fix for this new insta-kill bug is in the works. 

Some fans have joked that The Block could be “temporarily disabled” from Fortnite in the meantime, but that’s not very likely. We will keep you updated on the situation.

The Storm Scout sniper is one of the most sought-after Exotic weapons in Fortnite right now. While the weapon’s been in the game for a while in certain forms, players can now get the rifle with Mave. Here’s how you can find the weapon and the NPC as of February 24.

It’s safe to say that the the Storm Scout is one of the most powerful weapons in Fortnite right now. While the actual damage that it outputs is impressive, it also shows exactly where the storm/circle will form in the future, giving a pretty notable advantage to those who use it.

While the weapon has been available in a variety of ways over the past couple years since it’s inclusion, Epic has now thrown players for a loop by changing up where it’s available.

Mave and Storm Scout sniper rifle location

Epic Games
The Storm Scout sniper can now be found with Mave after the latest update from Epic Games.

While the Storm Scout sniper was previously available via the Lexa NPC near Hunter’s Haven, this is no longer the case. Instead, players will now have to travel a little bit further east if they want to pick up the powerful weapon.

As of February 24, the Storm Scout sniper rifle is available via Mave, just east of Catty Corner. Funny enough, she’s is located almost in the same place as Cole, who once sold the Hop Rock Dualies, so if you know where he is, you’ll be able to find Mave with ease.

If you’re still confused about what to do, here’s a step-by-step guide to help you out:

  1. Land in the island and go to the location seen in the image above (it’s the cliffside southeast of Catty Corner, overlooking the ocean).
  2. Go up to Mave, who will be looking at a shine-like object on the cliffside.
  3. Interact with Mave and tab over to the Storm Scout sniper.
  4. Purchase the sniper.
  5. The weapon will automatically show up in your inventory after the leave the menu.
Epic Games
The Storm Scout sniper costs 500 gold from Mave.

Like most Exotic weapon being sold at NPCs, the Storm Scout sniper rifle will cost players 500 Gold, so if you want the ability to get the weapon, you’ll need to save up a bit.

And that’s it! After you complete the above tasks you’ll have a Storm Scout sniper at your disposal. Of course, given the fact that we’re so close to the launch of Season 6, there’s always a chance that the location will change again in a few weeks.

We’ll keep this article updated for any further developments or changes regarding the sniper’s location should they arise. Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto.
