With only a couple of weeks remaining before the $30 million Fortnite World Cup, another potentially devastating glitch has been discovered with the Baller vehicles.
Ballers have always been considered to be a controversial addition in Fortnite, especially when it comes to the competitive side of the popular battle royale.
The complaint most players have had with the vehicle is that it offers too much protection and shelter from enemy fire, especially in late-game situations, giving players an easy way to navigate the normally-difficult endgame circles.
On top of that, a new glitch was recently found that causes players who exit the Baller to sometimes become invisible, creating headaches all around.
Now, just a day later, on July 9, another potentially game-breaking glitch has been discovered, this time allowing players to use weapons while riding in the vehicle, which is obviously not intended.
A clip posted by Twitter user ‘Anime___Knight’ put the alarming effect of this new glitch on full display. In the video, the player can be seen shooting his combat shotgun while riding in the Baller.
Although the shots that were fired didn’t actually inflict any kind of damage on enemy players, the number of rounds decreased from nine to seven following the sound of two shotgun shells being fired.
Perhaps the most unusual aspect of this was that the rounds were reset back to nine when the player exited the vehicle, which begs the question of whether those shots would have even done any damage had they hit an enemy player.

Although the exact cause(s) of this glitch remains unknown as of now, there is certainly some reason to worry for those that will be heading to New York City for the Fortnite World Cup at the end of the month.

With so much money and prestige on the line, participants will likely hold their breath in fear of this glitch striking them at a crucial moment and ruining one of their matches, especially considering that there will only be six matches played for both the Solos and Duos events.
These glitches won’t be the only things that players will be apprehensive about in New York; the addition of the brand new Air Strike item on July 9 has garnered a lot of negative feedback, with many calling the throwable extremely overpowered.
The Fortnite World Cup will take place July 26-28, featuring finals for both the battle royale and Creative Trials, as well as another celebrity Pro-Am event.
