Shopping Carts Temporarily Disabled in Fortnite Battle Royale Due To A Bug

Fortnite developer Epic Games announced that the shopping carts in the battle royale mode will be temporarily disabled again due to a bug.

The shopping carts were a much anticipated item, and took the game by storm when they were finally released, with players coming up with new inventive ways to use the first form of vehicle in the game.

They allow two players to travel on them at once, with one player pushing and another sitting atop the cart itself.

And due to some wonky physics, it was possible to use the carts to propel yourself high into the air with some particular builds and movement.

It was unclear at first if these uses of the cart were intentional or not, but it looks like Epic Games has identified an issue serious enough to warrant removing them completely, at least temporarily.

On June 16th, the official Fortnite Twitter released little information, but simply stated that they would be disabling the carts, effective immediately.

The issue is likely related to reports that players have been getting underneath the play area of the map using the carts, which is what Epic will likely be working hard to fix.

One of the most infamous use of the cart was actually to reach the spawn island while in a match, which a number of players managed to do by building large bridges with materials and then using the cart to launch across the water area.

There is no time frame given for when the Shopping Carts will be added back to the game, but previous bug fixes rarely take longer than around 24 hours.

The cart was previously disabled on June 11th, but quickly returned.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

Expect the Sentinel Graveyard to be a hot drop for the next week.

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
