Epic Games fans got access to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 has only been around for a few days and among the issues discovered is a bug that removes all water from the battle royale map. Besides the few bugs and problems encountered in FortniteSeason 4 brought point of interest changes, a new weapon rotation, and a battle pass that includes Meow Skulls and a Brie Larson skin.
The Fortnite The Battle Royale map included water from Loot Lake in the early days of the game, and since Chapter 2 made it bigger across the island, it’s become expected from season to season. . Even the seasons like Fortnite Zero Point, which had a vast desert in the center of the map, and Cubed, which had massive walkways to the Sideways, held water back on the island somehow. A Reddit user recently shared several images of one of his Fortnite battle royale matches in which they stumbled upon an island that seemed to be running out of all its water.
The first screenshot captured by the Reddit user shows the Fortnite Battle Royale Island from above, highlighting the many POI changes brought to the game with the current season dubbed Paradise. In the center of the lake next to FortniteThe Tilted Towers of , where Ground Zero is, show the most significant difference, with a completely dry lake exposing the swirling blue energy that was the target of Marvel’s Galactus during the Nexus War event. The rivers leading to this lake are also found to be equally empty of water in Fortnite screenshots, but the stranger reveals that the player is approaching the edge of the map and still sees no water.
Landing near Synapse station, which is still part of the Fortnite A paradise map like NPCs and vending machines, the Reddit user faces outside the island to see an endless desert in place of where the vast ocean normally is. Floating above the sandy surface is at least one fishing hole in player footage, which may suggest that affected players can still catch items from the ocean whether they’re there or not. Although the fish are where they should be despite the lack of water, it’s currently unclear if the Reddit user could use rivers for transportation like many others. Fortnite players or if they had to rely on a vehicle or a tamed animal to get around.
While the screenshots captured by this Reddit user show the start of the game, the Fortnite The Chapter 3 Season 4 player confirmed that the bug was constant for the entire game. However, they said that the following and previous matches were good. Time will tell if more players experience the apparent issue in-game.
