Fortnite fix bug after Tfue destroys all of Tilted Towers in seconds

After a clip of FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘ Tfue’ Tenney destroying Tilted Towers in a matter of seconds went viral, Epic Games have now rolled out a patch to fix the strange bug.

Essentially, by setting a 3 floor builds and ramp next to a building in Titled Towers, and then destroying the ramp, Tfue was able to demolish the main building in the area.

It appears the glitch was a by product of one of the recent updates, perhaps a slightly broken piece of code. It made the non-player structure act as though it was created by a player, dismantling once a connection to the ground was destroyed.

Tfue had clearly heard of or seen the bug performed before, as he quickly got it to work, but his stream viewers were in disbelief at what happened.

Clearly this is not an intentional addition to the game, as being able to completely demolish buildings with such a simple trick would spoil the flow of combat.

Thankfully, Epic Games have been quick to respond to the potentially game breaking bug, rolling out a hotfix on October 14.

So if you were hoping to emulate Tfue’s antics it looks like the opportunity is now missed.

It’s another example of Fortnite’s development team keeping a keen eye on all social channels, and acting quickly when such a potentially devastating bug arises.

Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.

Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
