Fortnite’s Battle Bus is leaving players behind thanks to new glitch

Fortnite’s Battle Bus is becoming the source of much frustration due to a ridiculous new glitch that is leaving players stranded on the spawn island.

The Battle Bus in Fortnite has always been an iconic aspect of Epic’s popular battle royale as all 100 players in each and every lobby are generously flown over the map.

Unfortunately, the mode of transport at the start of each game has been agitating a number of players lately as the bus driver appears to have forgotten about stragglers and left them behind in the starting area.

Fortnite’s Battle Bus has been an iconic feature since the battle royale mode was released.

Spawning into a round of Team Rumble on March 11, Reddit user ‘LayzaSkully’ was blindsided as the Battle Bus left them stranded alone on the spawn island.

The PlayStation player was immediately hit by the storm as their health started to dwindle away. With seemingly no way off the island, this life was essentially over before it really began.

Checking the map for any sign of hope, they were left completely alone while the battle raged on throughout the playable section of the map.

While the video cut out relatively early, there’s no way of telling if the player would have respawned over the map and sailed down towards safety, or if they would have just found themselves in an endless deathtrap on the spawn island.

Better get swimming!” ‘hotsaucenamejoked in response to the clip. However, given just how widespread the storm already was, even if players could swim to the mainland, this unlucky spawn still would have resulted in a death nonetheless.

There’s no indicating exactly how the issue came to be, though the player seemingly loaded in at the very second in which the match started. 

Rather than loading in time for the pre-game shenanigans on spawn island, they were dropped into the area right as everyone else left.

Seemingly only impacting Team Rumble for the time being, players should still be cautious about stumbling upon a similar glitch in the traditional battle royale playlists, considering they all involved the Battle Bus.

Epic is yet to respond to this particular issue, however, another problem has been causing frustration for Team Rumble regulars as players have been spawning into games mid-way through, leaving many to lose without loot, or quit.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
