The Fortnite 11.50 update introduced a game-breaking bug that allowed players to completely phase through walls, but Epic Games have now solved the problem.
As part of the February 5 update, Fortnite moved to Unreal Engine’s Chaos physics engine system, which ended up creating a plethora of bugs.
Perhaps the most game-breaking of the bugs was one that allowed players to completely phase through a wall if they ran into it long enough.
Obviously, this is a major problem in Fortnite since building makes up a large part of the game.
Considering the significance of this issue and the attention it was getting on social media and Reddit, Epic got to work and fixed it in a timely fashion.

Epic made another change shortly afterwards, but it was more of a quality of life improvement than a bug fix. The new Search and Destroy LTM, added as part of the Love and War event, was reduced from a best-of-11 to a best-of-seven, meaning teams now only need to win four rounds to claim victory.
This change was because the Love and War challenges require players to play the S&D LTM and complete various objectives, and players were getting frustrated by how long some matches were taking.
Considering one of the challenges is to play a certain amount of matches, players will appreciate this more shortened approach to it.
Of course, they will still have to purchase items from the Vending Machines and earn gold, so they’ll end up probably playing several games anyway.

The Love and Wars challenges unlock gradually, with all of them becoming available on February 9. They will be around until February 17, so players have plenty of time to grind them all out for some free cosmetics.
This will, in all likelihood, be the last major event of Chapter 2: Season 1, as Epic have announced that Season 2 will be kicking off on February 20 after it was recently delayed.
