Epic Games have disclosed a list of the bugs currently in Fortnite Battle Royale that are expected to be fixed in the upcoming v6.10 update.
Three bugs have been specially marked as ‘fixed in next release’ on the Fortnite community Trello page, which is where all of the top user-reported issues are displayed.
This means that the fixes for these three bugs have been discovered, and will likely be implemented into the game once the next patch goes live.
Unrendered Starter Island may appear during the loading screen – While loading in, players may notice an unrendered version of the Starter Island appear for a short time, then be replaced with the loading screen again until the map fully renders.
Audio for player eliminations is the same audio used for rotating structures – When a player is eliminated the audio used matches the audio used for rotating structures while in build mode. This can cause “strange” sounds to be heard when multiple players are being eliminated.
Floating Island appears in the wrong location on mini-map – The floating island is not appearing in the correct location on the minimap.
The fixes will be implemented via the v6.10 update, which goes live on October 16 at 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 8 AM BT. For more details about the update, and what else to expect in it, visit our information article here.
In addition to the three bugs mentioned above, there are eight other glitches and issues that are currently in the game and have been officially acknowledged by Epic.
The Trello page suggests that fixes for the two bugs are in the works, and will be released in a future update, while the developers are still monitoring the six other issues in their efforts to find and develop fixes.

After the incredible Nexus War event that saw Galactus finally attack the Fortnite island, Chapter 2’s next update has landed, bringing a host of updates to the game, including new weapons, a Bounty system, and some major map changes. Here’s the unofficial Fortnite Season 5 patch notes.
Season 4’s dramatic conclusion captivated the world on December 1, as the “Devourer of Worlds” Galactus finally reigned terror over the game’s island, attempting to pull the Zero Point out of the middle of the map to be consumed and end reality as we know it. Thankfully, with the help of some Marvel heroes like Ironman, Thor, and Wolverine, the gigantic villain was banished, but not before he made some startling changes.
Season 5 is set to revolve around the Zero Point, a massive ball of energy that creates the reality Fortnite exists in, and with it now exposed, Jonesy and some powerful bounty hunters have arrived on the island to stabilize it, and prevent any players from escaping the island.
With new weapons, the Bounty system, and some major map updates, there’s a lot to sink your teeth into this season. Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite Season 5: Zero Point.
New Weapons and Items
As always, a new season brings new toys for players to try out, and Season 5 is no exception. The new Dragon Shotgun is sure to lead to your enemy’s fiery demise, while the seven new fish available to catch in-game will give you a nice boost when needed.
Fans of Disney+’s The Mandalorian will get to use the weapons they see the character uses in the show, with his Amban Sniper Rifle making an appearance, while you’ll also be able to take to the sky using his Jetpack too.
Interestingly, there are also Gold Bars this season, along with a safe to keep them in. What you’ll be able to do with these bars remains unclear, but it’s likely they are the reward for capturing bounties and could be used to improve your loadout by buying new weapons or items. You can view the full list of new items below.
Tiger Zero Fish
Leafy Zero Fish
Skull Zero Fish
Sandstorm Rift Flopper
Zero Point Flopper
Gold Bars & Safe
Boom’s Sniper Rifle (Mythic)
Amban Sniper Rifle (Mythic)
Mandalorian’s Jetpack (Mythic)
Vaults and Unvaults
Along with new items, Epic Games have used the Vault system to freshen up the loot pool. Charge and Double Barrel Shotguns are back, along with the P90, Storm Scout Rifle, and Balloons.
Players will be saying goodbye to the Revolver, Fire Trap, Scar AR, and Tactical SMGs. Perhaps the biggest vault, the Pump Shotgun has once again been removed from the game, although it’s always worth remembering that just because an item has been vaulted doesn’t mean it won’t come back again in the future. You can check out the full list of vaults and unvaults below.
Double Barrel Shotgun
Storm Scout Rifle
Scoped Assault Rifle
Epic/Legendary Pump Shotgun
Legendary Combat Shotgun
Epic/Legendary Tac SMG
Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass
Of course, there’s also a new Battle Pass for players to grind through this season, with The Mandalorian the stand-out addition, alongside a number of new skins that are unlike anything we’ve seen before.
The full Battle Pass hasn’t been released just yet, but you can take a look at the trailer which has been dropped by Epic Games.
There’s something strange going on with the Fortnite Season 5 map, with some classic locations returning, but not exactly as we remember them. Tilted Towers and Salty Springs have been merged together to create Salty Towers, a hybrid of both original map locations.
Elsewhere, Stealthy Stronghold, Hunter’s Haven, and Colossal Coliseum are the three POIs to be added this year, along with a host of other Season 5 map changes that have yet to be discovered.
Here’s a few screenshots of the new map.
Here’s an area of the updated Fortnite map.

There appears to be a colosseum now on the island.

No Fortnite patch would be complete without bug fixes, and Epic Games have ironed out a few issues heading into the new season, including a fix for keybinding issues and disabling the Bash Burner pickaxe in competitive playlists:
Huntress Outfit appearing as Ramirez or another Outfit.
Impossible to bind the same key to different actions with Keyboard.
Bash Burner Pickaxe temporarily disabled in competitive playlists.
