Fortnite Season 6 has introduced an array of new content into the game. However, some unintended bugs and glitches have made it way into the game. Players were able to get unlimited gold bars in one such case. Now, another bug has been discovered which has the potential to be game breaking. The bug allows players to get infinite heals in Fortnite. This includes shield potions, medkits, vegetables, and more.
The prominent Fortnite Youtuber known as OrangeGuy shared a video demonstrating the glitch. It is important to note that OrangeGuy does warn players that using this in a public match can result in a ban. This is because Epic Games counts exploiting bugs as a form of cheating. However, it is important to be aware of incase other players are using it against you. Players can simply hide in the storm and use infinite heals to get an easy win for example. If you are a fan of Call of Duty: Warzone, this can be compared to the infinite stim glitch.
To get infinite heals in Fortnite, OrangeGuy outlines that you need to have a full inventory. Then, select a throwable heal and throw it at the same time as swapping the item with another that is on the ground. With the correct timing, a copy of the item will be made. Repeating this process means players can make infinite copies.
Waiting for a fix
The Fortnite infinite heals bug is definitely one of the most game breaking exploits we have seen in Season 6 so far. At the time of writing, Epic Games has not responded to the issue. However, it is likely the developers are already aware of it due to the issues that it is causing. It will be interesting to see if a fix will be deployed in the next update. Until then, you can keep up with the bugs and glitches that the developers are working on using the Fortnite Trello Board.
