Epic Games disables sand tunneling due to a Fortnite glitch

The developers of Fortnite have responded to a teleportation exploit in Season 5 that was discovered by some players.



Epic Games have disabled the sand tunneling feature in Fortnite Season 5, in response to a new glitch that players could use to instantly teleport to high-ground.

It’s not unusual for a game’s new season to come with a few bugs. We’ve seen it happen with nearly every major franchise and Fortnite is no exception. Fortnite has featured many exploits including one where players could teleport while jumping from a boat, and then a similar glitch was recently found in Season 5.

A few players saw that they were able to exploit the new sand tunneling feature to teleport themselves. They would disappear into the ground and then come out at an elevated position on top of a structure, allowing you to get yourself out of danger quickly.

Here’s the full details of the new glitch in Fortnite Season 5.

Sand tunneling Fortnite glitch

This glitch was first discovered by YouTuber Glitch King, and he explained how you could make it work in his Fortnite glitches video. It worked a lot like the last teleportation bug, except you would have to use the sand and a gas can.

Here’s how you could perform the glitch:

  1. Stand near the sand, then throw the gas can down to the ground
  2. Sink into the sand, and start moving towards the can
  3. Ram into the can before jumping up to teleport.

This would immediately teleport you to the building above you. You can see this in Glitch King’s video below.

Epic Games responds to the glitch

This kind of glitch wouldn’t cause too much trouble for casual players, but it would ruin the experience of competitive matches. Your enemies would constantly abuse this exploit to keep teleporting above.

Epic Games had this same concern in mind and responded to it almost immediately. Just a few hours after the glitch video went online, they made a post on the official Fortnite Status Twitter account, stating that they’ve temporarily removed the sand feature in Arena Mode.

They plan to investigate the bug, and will bring back the feature once they come up with a fix for it. This is an unsurprising reaction since they would want to avoid game-breaking errors this early into the newest season.

This isn’t the first time that players have used an exploit with the sand in Fortnite. When Season 5 went live, there was another bug that you could use to enter God Mode and become invisible. Many players found it incredibly infuriating to come up against someone who was glitched out.

Luckily Epic Games prevented this latest issue from getting that far by responding to the bug quickly. They also took the opportunity to address another bug in Snowdown Shuffle that was causing players to lose their Gold Bars.

With Operation Snowdown well underway, the developers have their hands full with releasing new content. We’re hoping they’ll find a fix soon and once they do, we will be sure to update you.

Fortnite Creative lets players design a ton of unique games and maps. Here are some of the best maps based on Squid Game in Fortnite.



Squid game characters on Fortnite island

Even though Fortnite hasn’t collaborated with Squid Game officially, the community has created a lot of maps based on the popular TV series. Here are some of the best Squid Game maps in Fortnite Creative and how you can join them.

With over 1.65 billion hours of watch time, Squid Game is the most watched show in Netflix’s history. Even though collaborating with Squid Game seems to be the obvious choice for Fortnite developers, we are yet to see the crossover.

Having said that, Fortnite still has a ton of Squid Game content, thanks to Creative mode. From mini-games to accurate replicas of the series’ sets, there are many options for players to explore.

Here are the map codes for the best Squid Game islands in Fortnite Creative.

The Lab Games

This Fortnite map combines four Squid Game mini-games and players can enjoy them all at once. There’s a wide range of levels and Fortnite weapons like harpoon guns as a part of the gameplay.

4-16 players can take part in The Lab Games together and the last player standing wins.

Glass Bridge Escape

The Glass Bridge Escape map in Fortnite is a massive hit among Squid Game fans. Although the mini-game is heavily based on luck and the creator describes it as impossible, it is action-packed and entertaining.

Participants have to cross a glass bridge before the timer runs out but there’s a twist: delicate tiles on the bridge will break if you step on them.

Map Code: 2865-1481-0812

Survival Game

The Survival Game map in Fortnite is exactly what it sounds like. There are six games including Red Light Green Light, Marbles, Honeycomb, Night Fight, Stepping Stones, and Tug of War and the winner must survive through each stage.

Each mini-game has a unique format and you won’t get bored with this map easily.

Map Code: 0652-7985-6622

Red Light Green Light

Red Light Green Light is a Fortnite map that replicates Squid Game’s mini-game in which participants need to pass a prying robot before the timer runs out. Green light means go and a red light means stop.

Moving during the red light leads to players getting eliminated, and the mini-game is all about timing and patience.

Map Code: 6796-5852-0804

Sypher’s Squid Game

Prominent YouTuber SypherPK has his own Squid Game map in Fortnite called Sypher’s Squid Game. It is similar to the Red Light Green Light map but you can also play as the supervisor in it.

When will Fortnite end forever?

Fortnite has been a popular battle royale game for over five years. Some players may be wondering if Fortnite will ever be shut down forever.

Fortnite was released five years ago and to this day, it is one of the most popular games in the world. There are always rumors that Fortnite will be shut down permanently, and we’ll break down if there’s any truth to those claims.

Very few games can replicate the long-lasting success of GTA V, Minecraft, or Roblox. However, Fortnite is really close to becoming an evergreen game if the implementation of Creative 2.0 goes as planned.

In the world of the internet, popularity is accompanied by criticism and Fortnite is no exception. While some claim that the battle royale title is ‘dead’, others have a problem with the ‘sweaty’ player base.

Let’s take a look at Fortnite’s current state and anticipate if it will ever end forever.

Is Fortnite shutting down in 2022?

No, Fortnite is not shutting down in 2022. Chapter 3 of the game began with massive storyline twists and crossovers, and to be fair, the quality of live events have improved. We are closer than ever to meeting Geno (leader of the Imagined Order) and it appears to be the ideal time for Epic Games to make new content.

In fact, Fortnite seems to have caught a second wind with Chapter 3 and the Zero Build mode. The faction of players who’ve always complained about the unfair competition can now switch to Zero Build mode which is much easier to learn.

Lastly, Fortnite has massive plans for Creative 2.0 and Epic Games has confirmed that the mode will be out this year. Creative 2.0 will allow Fortnite to incorporate countless genres of gaming like Minecraft and Roblox. Accordingly, the game will have the potential to survive even if the battle royale modes don’t perform well.

How many people play Fortnite: Active and monthly players in 2022

As per, Fortnite has over 257 million monthly players in August 2022. At its peak, the active player count touched 23 million in July 2022.

The active and monthly player counts are the best way to judge a game’s potential and the probability of it shutting down. Clearly, Fortnite is nowhere near ‘dead’ status and is comfortably one of the most-played games in the world.

From the facts mentioned above, it is safe to assume that Fortnite isn’t ending forever anytime soon. The battle royale title still boasts a massive player base and Epic Games can sustain it with constant updates, new content, crossovers, live events, and of course, Creative mode.
