The Fortnite Gold Bars reset has finally been fixed in Season 7, saving players from losing their entire gold collections to a pernicious bug.

Fortnite Gold Bars Reset Fixed in Season 7

Gold Bars are one of the many currencies in Fortnite, and they have their own special uses. Players accumulate Gold Bars as they play the game, earning more for defeating enemies, searching cash registers, and pilfering safes. They can then use these bars to hire NPCs as allies, upgrade their weapons, or buy more exotic weapons, such as the Shadow Tracker Pistol. Gold Bars also persist from match to match, meaning players can stack up a tidy sum if they're judicious spenders and avid players.

Unfortunately for many such players, a bug has been going around deleting their Gold Bar totals. Several players have made posts on the Fortnite subreddit in the last few days complaining about their entire stashes disappearing after playing a match.

"I had about $2,200 gold and it all disappeared," wrote user u/_Frosty-Paws_. "can someone explain to me why this freaking happened? All my gold was there yesterday and today it's one. WTF?"

Fortnite developer Epic Games acknowledged the bug Friday.

"We are investigating an issue where players may start a game with 0 Bars, and any Bars collected are not retained in the next match," reads a tweet published Friday on the Fortnite Status Twitter account. "We'll provide an update when we can."

Later that day, the same account tweeted that Epic had solved the bug.

"We've resolved this issue and players' Bar counts have returned to their previous amounts! Bars collected in a match will carry over to the next game."
