A new Fortnite update went live today and could soon be followed by a much smaller patch.
While today’s release brought new Buried Treasure to Battle Royale, it may have also added an issue with one of its many locations.
Players can now pick up treasure maps that will help them find special legendary loot piles hidden around the island.
However, Fortnite fans may want to think twice before they go visiting Fatal Fields.
It has now been confirmed that a new problem has been added to the game that can cut a session prematurely short.
Instead of being eliminated by your fellow Battle Royale competition, it appears that the Fork Knife monument can do that for you.
Epic Games has confirmed that there is a current bug that will remove players from games if they walk near the massive cutlery motif in the ground.
“Beware the Fork Knife! We’re aware of an issue with players being eliminated when walking around the Fork Knife near Fatal Fields,” a message from Epic Games reads.
“We’ll be releasing a fix for this issue shortly.”
It sounds like a much smaller patch could be released in the coming hours to remove this problem.
It may also be possible that Epic can fix this without needing to release a new patch on PS4, Xbox, PC, Nintendo Switch and Mobile.
However, if something does pop up in the coming days, you can probably guess it is connected to this ongoing problem.
As mentioned above, today’s Fortnite update has added a lot more than just a deadly location to visit.
The Limited Time Mode of Slide Duos is back and can be found on the mode list in-game.
“Ice blocks on everyone’s feet, infinite ammo Grapplers in everyone’s inventory – a recipe for a slippery good time,” the description reads.
Other changes include a list of bugfixes, as well as upgrades for Fortnite Creative Mode, including new spray options and the introduction of the Drum Gun.
