Fortnite Season 8 Bug Spotted: The Pickaxes Are Not Working

Fear not! We've done the challenge and have put together a map that shows you exactly where to go.

The Pinball Bumper and Flipper have also been added that interact when a player or vehicle run into them, pinging you some distance.

Fortnite Season 8 just launched with a new pirate-themed landscape, new skins and other content, and even with some secrets that the players have to uncover on their own. Thanks to some handy Fortnite leaks, we already know what the loading screens look like for the first two weeks, and where the rewards will be hidden.

While Epic Games said nothing about the possible Fortnite Season 8 bug, the glitch seem to affect players on all platforms. This means we have new areas in the map to explore, new challenges to complete and an entire Battle Pass worth of loot to aim for. Thankfully you only really need to ever find one and just visit it in five separate matches. It's fairly hard to miss, once you know what you're looking for.


This is a good entry point as far as Season 8 challenges are concerned.

If you are having trouble finding these camps, remember you can enable the Party Assist feature in the challenge menu. As their name suggests, you will only find these volcano vents in the new jungle biome. Littered the area around the volcano are "vents' that will propel you into the sky".

This time along, Fortnite only gets one new item, dubbed Pirate Cannon. Examine the buildings over their shoulder in the background and you'll see a hidden Battle Star sat on the roof of a tower, so make your way to Lazy Lagoon so we can get started. You'll be able to do this by going to the Battle Pass tab or by upgrading to a Battle Bundle at a discount.
