Fortnite players are used to dealing with a number of annoying glitches, but it looks like the latest one has caused Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins and Ben 'DrLupo' Lupo to become completely fed up.

Fortnite has always had its share of bugs since but it seems like things have gotten a bit worse since the start of Season 8.

There have been things such as instadeath locations, problems with the new Baller vehicle and this building glitch that claimed the life of DrLupo in a recent match.

The glitch refers to some funky building mechanics that don't always work the way you want them to. 

Lupo goes to put down a floor but is suddenly teleported on top by his enemy where he is quickly eliminated. 

"What the," Lupo said. "Tell me somebody saw that."

Ninja fell victim to a similar situation where his opponent just flat out phased through his wall. These aren't just isolated issues as many other players experience these same bugs.

Players have been complaining about phasing through structures for several seasons now it seems like and the problem still hasn't been fully fixed.

In the above video, at around 1:51, you can see Ninja trying to protect himself from a player by building a 1x1 structure.

It just looks like his opponent walks right through his wall and eliminates him before succumbing to the storm himself.

Fortnite is still trying to make its mark in the esports world and bugs like this, ones that are so prevalent, certainly don't help the cause.
