Fortnite bug is causing players major problems when shooting through trees

Fortnite battles usually involve crazy builds or insane outplays to come out on top, but players are experiencing a bug in the game that will make any player think twice before taking a clean shot to an opponent with any trees around.

Fortnite has been a runaway success since it introduced its battle royale in September 2017, but that hasn’t stopped the king-of-the-hill shooter from experiencing its shares of infuriating bugs.


In a post, Twitch streamer CrizzB was left dumbfounded when his clear shot to his enemy was seemingly blocked twice by the tree in his way, only to be shot back by that same opponent using the same angle.

Epic GamesThe bug could make any player anxious to pick an engagement around trees.

The streamer and his squad were engaging on another team but when he finally builds up to get a sly angle directly on an opponent’s head, the shot never went through.


Salt was thoroughly applied to the wound after both of CrizzB’s blocked shots were returned with a killing blow from the player he failed to kill.

Some believe that the incident wasn’t a bug at all and likened it to Fortnite’s steel fences in which some weapon types can shoot through them while others cannot.

Although it could be an in-game element that a bullet needs to be composed of tougher stuff to get through a steel chain-linked fence, bullets being blocked by a tree’s leaves just doesn’t sound plausible.


Epic Games have already made their way through fixing some notable bugs, but they might have to add one more on the list if these situations keep persisting.

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.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
