The Port-a-Fortress was added to the game in the V5.41 patch on September 18. It’s a legendary version of the Port-a-Fort and offers significantly more protection than its predecessor.

However, there have been a number of issues with it causing Fortnite to lag, especially when deployed in the late game when the storm circle is closing in on the final few players.

Unfortunately, it looks like those issues were not addressed in the September 27 V6.0 patch that marked the start of Season 6 and brought numerous major changes to gameplay, weapons and more.

TSM’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani experienced the infuriating issue in full effect while streaming after yesterday’s update, exclaiming “What’s happening?! What’s happening?! It’s full lag dude.”

Concerns within the competitive Fortnite community are that this lag issue could have a direct impact on the results of this week’s Fall Skirmish tournament, with one Reddit user saying “Please disable before tomorrow, it ruined a couple games last week.”

It’s not entirely clear what causes the Port-a-Fortress to make the game glitch so badly in late game scenarios, but it seems to be linked to how much building work has already been placed in the area that it is thrown.


Epic Games have announced that they are temporarily disabling the Port-a-Fortress “to address degraded performance.”
