Fortnite Season 5 has got a game-breaking bug where players can use the new Quicksand feature to enter a God mode state – giving them free wins.
It’s not unusual for a game’s latest update to come with a few bugs. We’ve seen it happen with nearly every major franchise and Fortnite is no different. Epic Games introduced a quicksand feature in Season 5, Chapter 2 and players are taking advantage of it right away.
The mechanic is meant to offer you a way to hide from enemies while you plan your attack. It comes with the extra boost of increased movement speed, so you can use the sand to travel much faster too. The quicksand has a lot in common with props from Season 10 in Chapter 1, but it’s not without its problems.
Turns out the new movement mechanic has a bug that you can exploit to enter a God mode state.
The glitch has made it so that you can use the sand to become invisible as well as completely invulnerable, so users can easily wrack up wins by utilizing the exploit.

Plenty of players have run into the issue since Chapter 2, Season 5 got underway – including Fortnite data miner iFireMonkey who showed off a clip of just how infuriating it can be to come up against someone who is glitched out.
This glitch is clearly game-breaking, so, Epic Games will need to roll out a patch for it as quick as possible. At the moment, though, the quicksand bug isn’t listed on the Fortnite Trello Board, so it’s likely that they haven’t caught onto the problem yet. The entire mechanic might get taken out of commission for a bit if a fix isn’t found soon.
It’s unclear whether or not there’s a specific method to follow before you can enter God mode. Until we hear from the developers about this, we’ll keep looking into the matter to see what else we can find out about the bug.
