Fortnite devs respond to broken Chug Splashes as multiple bugs found

Chug Splashes have finally made their long-awaited return in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3, but it appears that players have been having problems with the shield-boosting item, and Epic have responded to the matter.

As players who regularly drop off the Battle Bus will know by now, Chug Splashes can be really handy for healing multiple teammates at once, as a single splash can catch more than one person and restore shields/health by 20.

That being said, their comeback has been somewhat marred, as an in-game bug has been rendering them pretty much useless since patch v13.00 went live.

Fortnite Chug Splash issues confirmed

Instead 0f dishing out the usual 20 HP splashes, some members of the community have been baffled to learn that they now only restore health or shields by one point per hit. Clearly, that’s never been the intention when they’ve been made active as part of the loot pool.

It’s also been known to not work at all when players are inside a bush or when a build is made a certain way, which are other issues that need resolving. Thankfully, though, after being flagged by Redditors a dev has ensured the team are looking into the problem.

Replying to the post above, from user Nitehook_YT, dev EmptyTux said: “Sending this over to our QA team for investigation. If you run into this again /u/Nitehook_YT, please Submit Feedback using the in-game menu option and let me know. Thanks!”

Another user posted: “Can’t use in a big bush. Can’t use on a build that’s underwater (i.e. throwing it on a stair or wall that’s partially underwater will not work).”

The issue has since been added to the official Fortnite Trello board to be monitored as a priority problem, and will likely be resolved in a future patch. When the fix actually comes, however, is not yet clear.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
