Fortnite’s Storm Is Destroying Buildings Inside The Circle

Team Liquid’s Jake “POACH” Brumleve found out the hard way that Fortnite’s storm is destroying buildings inside the storm.

POACH was coming towards the end of a scrim with Liquid teammate Thomas “72hrs” Mulligan when the storm began to close in behind them. Prepared for it, POACH and 72hrs are heard in the clip discussing how far the storm would come in, and calculating what their next move would be.

However, as the storm moves in, POACH’s building begins to disappear, even the parts that are outside of the storm, leaving him open and defenseless against his enemies.

POACH immediately takes a shotgun blast as 72hrs tells him to build, as the floor beneath POACH hilariously disappears under his feet while he desperately tries to build around him.

The Team Liquid pro player complained about lag while he tried to fix the destruction that was taking place behind him, and it’s entirely possible that some lag caused the storm to glitch out and destroy his entire building.

Alternatively, this could be how the storm is designed, and that any building that touches the storm will be destroyed in its entirety.

The new storm mechanics were introduced in the V5.40 update that released on Thursday, September 6. Included in the update was the new High Stakes event, the Grappler item, and updated in-game locations like Dusty Diner.


Vaulted & unvaulted weapons in Fortnite Season 5

A number of weapons and items have been either vaulted or unvaulted in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5, including some fan favorites and old classics. 

Fortnite Season 5 officially dropped on Wednesday, December 2, bringing a number of major changes with it. As specified in the new update’s patch notes, the game is going to look pretty different going forward.

Some big map changes hint toward a slow revert back to the old map, with the likes of Flush Factory and Dusty Depot starting to come back, which is more than enough reason to get excited.

And, although new weapons such as the Dragon Shotgun have arrived, one thing all players will be looking for is the old items that have returned from the vault, and those which have been placed back in it.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 is named Zero Point — and brings some fun changes to the game.

Vaulted weapons

Vaulted weapons are those that have been stashed away, unplayable in the game, that might one day return to the game.

Here’s what we know has been vaulted:

  • Revolver
  • Fire Trap
  • Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Pump Shotgun
  • Legendary Combat Shotgun
  • Scar assault rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Tac SMG

Unvaulted weapons

Of course, with some weapons leaving the game, some are making their grand return. Here’s what:

  • Charge Shotgun
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • P90
  • SMG
  • Storm Scout Rifle
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Balloons

So, that’s everything that’s been vaulted or unvaulted according to the patch notes for Fortnite Season 5, and there’s definitely some there that we’re going to miss, such as the Scar assault rifles and Pump shotguns, but the Tactical Shotgun and P90 making a return could make up for that and keep the weapons feeling fresh and fun.

With a number of big streamers starting to switch back to Fortnite, it looks like Season 5 could be one of the biggest yet — so have fun destroying those new and returning players!
