Epic Games warn Fortnite players about deadly bugged location

Epic Games have warned Fortnite players about a bugged location on the map that’s eliminating anybody who visits it. 

The developer revealed its first set of changes to Fortnite Season 8 with the v8.01 patch on March 6, which includes brand new Buried Treasure item. However, they seem to have found an issue already. 

Epic sent out an official warning to players jumping into battle royale, encouraging them to steer clear of the ‘Fork Knife’ area.

Epic GamesBuried Treasure was added to Fortnite in Patch v8.01 and players will be hoping the X doesn’t land on Fork Knife.

“Beware the Fork Knife!” they tweeted from Fortnite’s official Twitter account. “We’re aware of an issue with players being eliminated when walking around the Fork Knife near Fatal Fields.” 

For those that aren’t aware of the location, it looks like two pieces of cutlery and can be seen in the post below.

Epic is already working on a hotfix for the problem and will update the game’s community “shortly”. 

In the meantime, it would be advisable for players to drop somewhere else – unless you want to be eliminated, of course. 


Vaulted & unvaulted weapons in Fortnite Season 5

A number of weapons and items have been either vaulted or unvaulted in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5, including some fan favorites and old classics. 

Fortnite Season 5 officially dropped on Wednesday, December 2, bringing a number of major changes with it. As specified in the new update’s patch notes, the game is going to look pretty different going forward.

Some big map changes hint toward a slow revert back to the old map, with the likes of Flush Factory and Dusty Depot starting to come back, which is more than enough reason to get excited.

And, although new weapons such as the Dragon Shotgun have arrived, one thing all players will be looking for is the old items that have returned from the vault, and those which have been placed back in it.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 is named Zero Point — and brings some fun changes to the game.

Vaulted weapons

Vaulted weapons are those that have been stashed away, unplayable in the game, that might one day return to the game.

Here’s what we know has been vaulted:

  • Revolver
  • Fire Trap
  • Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Pump Shotgun
  • Legendary Combat Shotgun
  • Scar assault rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Tac SMG

Unvaulted weapons

Of course, with some weapons leaving the game, some are making their grand return. Here’s what:

  • Charge Shotgun
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • P90
  • SMG
  • Storm Scout Rifle
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Balloons

So, that’s everything that’s been vaulted or unvaulted according to the patch notes for Fortnite Season 5, and there’s definitely some there that we’re going to miss, such as the Scar assault rifles and Pump shotguns, but the Tactical Shotgun and P90 making a return could make up for that and keep the weapons feeling fresh and fun.

With a number of big streamers starting to switch back to Fortnite, it looks like Season 5 could be one of the biggest yet — so have fun destroying those new and returning players!
