A new editing bug has been discovered in the popular Battle Royale game Fortnite, and it could be detrimental enough to cost you a victory. Acknowledging the severity of the bug, Epic Games has issued a response.

With update version 10.40.1, a new limited-time event was confirmed, Season X was extended, and a few minor tweaks were implemented. Unfortunately, it appears a major bug has slipped through the cracks however.

While certainly not the first bug in the history of the competitive Battle Royale title, Fortnite has been hit with a new and surprising issue that drastically impacts rapid building.

In an October 2 post on Reddit, user ‘Tomred95’ shared a newly discovered bug that massively impacts the rapid building and editing process.

After editing a ceiling block in half, putting it back to full scale, and then looking away momentarily, the bug ensures that you’re no longer able to re-edit that ceiling piece until you look away once again.

This bug could be hugely impactful to professional players and streamers alike, those who have mastered the hectic building and editing mechanics in Fortnite. 

Not being able to re-edit the roof of your structure in the heat of combat, could be enough to cost you the entire match under certain circumstances. 

An Epic Games Community Coordinator responded to the Reddit post in saying, “thanks for the video illustrating this! I’ll send this to our QA team for investigation.”

The post was barely a few hours old by the time that Epic Games caught wind of the bug, so rest assured that the development team is on the ball and searching for a fix to the unexpected issue as soon as possible.

The limited release ‘Out of Time’ event is set to launch on October 8 and will include end of season cosmetic rewards among XP gains aplenty. 

As a result, Season 11 has been held back slightly. Now expected to launch on throughout the week beginning October 14, you can keep up with all the latest right here.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

The map used in the Box Fight Tournament was created by two winners of the Princess Castle Creative Contest.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
