Epic Games has provided an update on the ongoing Damage Trap glitch in Fortnite Battle Royale and when it will be fixed.

The Damage Traps have seen a number of changes in recent months, with the most recent one seeing the base damage buffed from 75 to 150 in the V4.3 patch.

However, videos and reports quickly started to surface which showed a strange new glitch where players were being killed by Traps while standing on a floor above them.

Reddit user EyFezy was one of the first people to share a video of the bug on June 11th and an Epic Games employee was quick to respond with confirmation that it would be looked into.

Roll forward to June 15th and the bug was still catching people out. Reddit user Svennieboy03 shared a video where three died to a trap that was below them after a fourth player set it off underneath.

Naturally, the glitch is beginning to infuriate players and there is very little that they can do to avoid dying to a trap that is on a different floor entirely.

apparently this bug hasn’t been fixed yet from r/FortNiteBR

Luckily for Svennieboy03, and all of the other players that have fallen foul of the trap glitch, Epic Games employee darkevil responded to the thread to confirm that the bug will be fixed “in the next major patch”.

If history is anything to go by, we can expect to see that next major patch, which would be the V4.5 update, on June 26th.

there is a possibility that the V4.4 Content Update, expected to be released on June 19th, could be classed as a “major patch”, but don’t hold your breath.


How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
