A wild new Fortnite glitch allows players to shoot an opponent straight through their Cow Catcher and kill them despite being behind cover.
Five years since its release and Fortnite seems stronger than ever. Epic Games has renewed interest in the battle royale shooter after making the drastic decision to remove buildings from the game entirely.
The move has sparked interest from gamers and streamers alike, with both Pokimane and xQc making their way back into the game for the first time in a while.
While the changes were well received, one player encountered an unfortunate bug with a new item that cost them a match.
Fortnite players are encountering a game-losing cow catcher bug
Reddit user radioactiveJason2004 was playing shooter when he was shot straight through a cow catcher.
Cow Catchers are new items in Fortnite that are both a vehicle mod and can provide emergency cover in a firefight.
Jason tried to protect himself from shots from above with the Cow Catcher but was shot right through the protection.
They captioned their post, “Uhhh, why was I shot through my shell?”
Comments flooded the post to find the exact reason for this bug, with some pointing to the game’s rendering issues.
The top rated post was: “Rendering error. If someone is far away, they can shoot you through cover. Someone who was 5th in the No Building tournament died like that yesterday.”
Despite the bugs players have encountered in Cow Catchers, star players like it PKSypher still believe they are an incredibly powerful element.
