Ninja witnesses bizarre disappearing rocket glitch on Fortnite

Twitch superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins witnessed a bizarre glitch on Fortnite Battle Royale when a rocket he fired vanished into thin air.

The Luminosity Gaming member was playing alongside Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop, Ryan ‘Chap’ Chapo and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore when the squad came across an enemy team just north of Fatal Fields.

With Cloak already dead, Ninja spotted a member of the enemy squad alone, and used one of the purple pits located around the map to jump towards him.

Fortnite’s Rocket Launcher is the latest weapon to encounter a glitch.

Just as Ninja was about to land beside his opponent, he quickly pulled out and threw a Boogie Bomb, rendering his enemy helpless as he danced uncontrollably.

With his opponent unable to attack, Ninja pulled out his Rocket Launcher and fired from close range, with the power of the rocket likely enough to knock his opponent, or at least cause some serious damage.

Surprisingly, the rocket never connected with his enemy. Just as it began to fly out of the launcher towards its target, it disappeared, leaving Blevins stunned.

“Where did my rocket go?” asked Ninja, shocked at what he had just witnessed. “You saw that, right?”

While Blevins’ rocket failed to materialize, he was able to react and pull out a shotgun, knocking his opponent, before jumping over to the where CouRage was battling his other teammates to help out and wipe the squad.

Epic Games have yet to address this glitch, but Fortnite fans will be hoping that the developer is able to fix the issues affecting the Rocket Launcher before Season 7 begins. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
