Fortnite players spooked by vanishing Slurp Trucks

Fortnite’s Slurp Trucks have been disappearing from the battle royale map due to a puzzling bug that is leaving players stumped.

Introduced in the major Season 2 update, Slurp Trucks and Slurp Barrels were scattered across the freshly updated map as a new way for players to acquire additional shields.

After breaking the new additions, anyone within a close proximity would have their shields topped up. However, a new bug is forcing Slurp Trucks to completely vanish, leaving players with one less source of healing.

Slurp Trucks are often valuable late-game resources.

Trekking down a mountain mid-way through a game on March 12, Reddit user ‘ThiccBoi_” cautiously approached a Slurp Truck as though the issue had already impacted them in earlier lobbies.

“Truck is still here,” he said as he spotted one in the distance. “Truck is not here,” he shortly expressed just a few seconds later as he got closer to the vehicle.

After shaking his camera and taking a few steps, the truck disappeared entirely and the Fortnite duo was left to scavenge shields through other means.

Similarly, another player also grinding the battle royale on PC, highlighted an even more egregious instance of the glitch. Rather than disappearing in the distance, this truck took its time before vanishing.

Getting up close and personal, Reddit user ‘jrushFN’ was striking away at the Slurp Truck in hopes of breaking it and getting some shields before the closing zone forced them to flee. The truck however, had other ideas.

Without showing any signs of damage, the truck looked completely impenetrable until it just disappeared altogether.

While some players are suggesting that these issues could be popping up due to various rendering issues, it appears to be impacting PCs of all sorts, from budget builds to high-performance rigs.

Epic is yet to respond to the glitch but at least these players were actually able to make it into the game to begin with — another jaw-dropping bug has been leaving players behind on the Spawn Island.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
