Fortnite: Another mysterious invisibility bug appearing in Battle Royale

Some Fortnite fans will remember the terrible invisibility bug which was found when Epic Games added Shadow Stones, and now footage has emerged which suggests there might be another one. 

The idea of being hidden in plain sight would probably an ideal scenario for Fortnite players, hence the developer trying to build a temporary invisibility item into the game at the beginning of Season 6, but it’s never really worked as Epic had intended. 

After gamers were experiencing bugs with Shadow Stones, such as unlimited invisibility, they were removed from the game in the v7.00 patch. However, this new bug is a lot more confusing than that. 

Cultured VulturesShadow Stones, the Fortnite item riddled with bugs and removed in the 7.00 Patch.

In a post to the FortniteBR subreddit, one Reddit user – FloodsVFX – included a clip where himself and his teammate had been knocked down near Polar Peaks and next to them was also a player knocked from another team. 

A plane came crashing past, seemingly without a pilot, and a few moments later you can hear the enemy player was suddenly being revived. They sprung back into action and eliminated FloodsVFX with a shotgun. 

Wow! They must’ve really increased the range at which you could revive! from r/FortNiteBR

“Wow! They must’ve really increased the range at which you could revive!” the Reddit user posted, yet if you listen carefully to the audio in the clip below, you can hear footsteps across the snow before the player is revived. 

This suggests that rather than the range of revival being increased, there actually might have been a player there all along that we – or the team for that matter – couldn’t see. 

There is no way of definitively knowing if the player is under the map, invisible or perhaps even – as Floods suggested – the revive range was increased in this instance, but the game does have a history for this type of bug.


Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

Could Neo or Trinity from The Matrix be coming to Fortnite?

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
