Fortnite has seen its fair share of game-breaking weapons, but a bug in the game can give players the ability to become a walking hazard with the help from a Launch Pad.

Players might recall the massive amounts of damage the Infinity Blade would deal to structures before it got Vaulted. Well, the bug in question could actually make a player more volatile than the Mythic weapon.

Reddit user Zacki37 posted a video that showed how using a Launch Pad under a Zipline will give the player a bizarre effect that destroys buildings and objects around them.

The new glitch gives players the destructive powers similar to the Infinity Blade.

Although the bug is difficult to reproduce, Zack gave some insight on how to recreate the glitch which seems pretty straightforward.

“You bounce and at the same time, press ride the zipline. It’s hard because sometimes your bounce pad will brake but I did it with the second try,” Zacki37 said.

In the video, Zack put a Launch Pad right next to a low-hanging Zipline. While they’re jumping onto the platform, the command to enter the Zipline briefly appears.

Players will know they activated the bug by having the animation of the Zipline over their character’s model while in mid-air.

When they land, a pulsating blue effect will be emanating from the player that wreaks havoc on the surrounding environment. But in Zack’s case it will eventually create a maelstrom from within the player, breaking every destructible object in its path.

Although players have noted that a similar Fortnite bug appeared in the past, something this destructive to the game could put it high on Epic Games’ priority list to fix.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.
