The electric trap could be the source of a glitch on Fortnite, allowing you to have a shield to infinity wherever you are on the map … thanks to the zombies of Retail Row!
The Retail Row area of Fortnite is somewhat special this season . Indeed, to venture there, is to risk to be face to face with zombies. And even if knocking them out gives you a shield bonus, using your ammo on the undead makes you very vulnerable to the onslaught of other players. Retail Row was therefore characterized as a double-edged area, where zombies can be profitable … or not.
However, the user Reddit Scifearious has found in the weekend an amazing glitch , which allows you in substance to earn periodically shield , while killing zombies, and even if you are at the other end of the map.
How? Thanks to Fortnite’s new object: the Electric Trap .
In the video above, we can see that the electrical traps at Retail can, by dealing with zombies, allocate you extra shield on a regular basis.
Epic Games has commented on this phenomenon.
Epic Games has commented on this phenomenon :
“We are aware that Demons are destroyed by traps when the player is out of Retail Row, and we are currently investigating that creatures do not always attack electric traps.”
No hotfix has been deployed yet, but there is a good chance that the problem will be fixed with the 10.30 update that is about to happen.
