Fortnite players have discovered an apparent glitch with the Rift-To-Go item that transports users off the map, instead of high above it.
The Rift-To-Go is a utility item that was added to Fortnite in 2018 that opens a portal that transports players high above the map.
It’s a favorite for players looking to quickly get out of a tough situation, or just to get across the map immediately, but now players have found a bug that takes them off the map completely.
In a clip posted to /r/FortniteBR, user cheafy275 activates the Rift-To-Go underneath a zipline on a ramp, then goes through it.
Except, instead of appearing high above the map, the come out of the rift far away from any land and are almost immediately eliminated.
Some users suggested in the comments that it could be the fact the Rift was opened underneath a Zip Line, which has been racked with bugs and complaints since it was introduced.
Ziplines were introduced in Fortnite Season 7 and allow players to use an item while traveling around the map much faster.
What happened to cheafy definitely seems like a glitch, so users might want to stay away from Rift-To-Go until Epic Games announces a fix, or explains what’s going on.
In the meantime, you can use many of the naturally occurring Rifts on Fortnite's map that can be located with this handy map.
There’s been no word from Epic on the apparent glitch, but be sure to follow us @Dexerto on Twitter for any updates as soon as they become available.
