A Reddit user, u/Ecquatic, noticed some recent mess-ups in Epic Games Fortnite Season 6 and made a lighthearted joke on how they should "Just breathe in. Breathe out." with everything happening.

The user joked about how the publisher might be having a bad time with a lot of recent in-game errors due to the recent commencement of the new season. Most errors are to do with objects in the item shop and some actual in-game play issues.

Hopefully, with the new upcoming v16.10 for Fortnite Season 6, Epic will have a better outlook on in-game issues. As with many game companies, it's always tricky to track what's new, any updates, and the overall performance. Epic is no exception.

One of the mess-ups from Fortnite Season 6 included The Wild Lobby Track. Epic took note of an issue regarding how it was inserted in the item shop and the Battle Pass. Of course, this prompted players to purchase it, while they could have simply played and earned it. The developer was quick to pull it down and not have many unwanted purchases.

Epic also had an issue with the Hazard Platoon Pack in the item shop in Fortnite Season 6. When players went into the item shop, the pack itself was purchasable but could not actually be viewed. This prompted the organization to pull the pack as a whole quickly.

They also had to remove Cuddlefish from the competitive playlist. The issue comes as some pro players complained that the fish was too overpowered. Though it initially does minor damage, using lots of them or getting direct hits gave players instant kills.


The last issue was that Epic had released Fortnite Season 6's Week 2 quests earlier than planned. The company said it would still release the Week 2 Legendary Quest on Thursday, as planned. They then made it clear once again on Twitter that they will always be Thursdays.

Luckily, as seen above, Epic could revert purchases on the Wild Lobby Track if players did purchase it. The devs also removed them entirely from the Lockers in Fortnite Season 6.

Epic also reported issues with the game preventing players from matchmaking within the new Myster at Croft Manor Creative Hub. The publisher has still not mentioned if the problems have been resolved.

No doubt Epic will have issues down the road, but it's expected.
