On PNBRintel’s Twitter we see a video where a player shows a speed higher than normal during the game. He’s not just running rather, it moves above what is considered normal for the competitive integrity of the game. This is only possible thanks to the new mechanic that allows players to slide.
Gliding was added to Fortnite in the third chapter, and allows players to kneel down slopes to gain speed while shooting opponents. However, it seems that it is possible to make unfair use of this type of ability. At the time of writing this article, Epic Games has yet to comment on the new issue.
What’s unclear so far regarding the new bug found by players is whether all players can use it or whether the user who reported and showed the video of the issue was very lucky to be able to. Either way, it is a problem that Epic Games will have to start taking into account in the coming days.
