Having success in a game of Fortnite comes down to being able to outgun and outbuild your opponent, while also having some luck on your side when it comes to looting an area for equipment.
In games between pro players, they have their own routine when it comes to jumping out the battle bus – as they head to a regular landing spot and follow their set out ‘loot path’ that should give them a chance at winning. Though, sometimes, the game intervenes and throws in a curveball at them, leading to a more difficult start than normal.
That was the case for Tfue and his teammate Scoped during their February 10 round of matches, as the battle royale title decided that the most opportune time for a bug to rear its head would be during the landing phase.
As Tfue was gliding towards his regular spot of the cigarette-looking smoke stack in Steamy Stacks, his game quickly stuttered and sent him off course. “My game just bugged out, I can’t land there with you,” he called out as Scoped became engaged in a fight.
Unfortunately for the streamer, his teammate lost that fight, was knocked down, and needed a revive. “Bro, what the f**k was that bug?" Tfue called out. “Like, you literally just died because my game f**ked up, literally.”
The strange bug isn’t the only one that has affected players in recent days, with many reporting that the recently unvaulted launch pads just don’t work at all from time to time.
It remains to be seen if Epic Games are aware of the issue and plan to have it fixed in the time for the launch of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 on Thursday, February 20. Fans, though, will be hoping these problems are resolved shortly.
