Season 7 of Fortnite Battle Royale went live yesterday, December 6, adding a plethora of new items, skins and more to the already incredibly diverse game.

One of the most interesting changes from the v7.00 update comes in the form of the ziplines that have been added to various locations around the map and provide an interesting new method of transportation.

When everything goes to plan, players simply need into one of the ziplines and they will be able to move from one mountain to another. Unfortunately, things don’t always go to plan!

One unlucky player fell foul of an insane glitch while playing a squads game after the update went live, and he couldn’t resist sharing it on Reddit for all to see.


‘SRX Astros’ and his teammates were engaged in a rather intense battle, but when he tried to close the distance to his opponents, he was thrown backwards and forwards by some sort of bugges zipline before eventually being catapulted off the map entirely!

We’re not entirely sure what it was that caused the glitch, and we haven’t seen it happen to anyone else yet, but we’re almost certain that ziplines aren’t supposed to send players into orbit…

Games developers often find themselves having to iron out minor glitches and issues after an update as big as Fortnite’s Season 7 one was, but the more we watch the clip, the more we feel like it should be permanent feature.


Okay, so it might be annoying if it happened to you in the grand final of a major tournament, but just imagine how funny it would be for everyone else!
