A Fortnite player has found a new instant death glitch in the Holly Hedges POI.

On Nov. 21, Reddit user u/Mablemon reported that driving a vehicle too close to the side of the yellow house hands players an undeserving death. In Mablemon's case, they placed a premature 41st place, with the camera glitching into the ground indicating that their player model indeed fell victim to some foul play.

On Mablemon's reddit thread, an Epic Games developer replied soon after the initial post.

"Thanks for flagging this, u/Mablemon! Our QA team has been investigating cases like this," community coordinator EpicBoaty said.

While there is no fix in sight just yet, it is positive to see that Epic Games is aware of the issue and is looking into other reported cases of instant death glitches.

As Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 enters its final act with the Galactus event's timing just announced, it would be truly unfortunate to have a game-deciding glitch like this affects competitions with money on the line such as the $1M Duos Super Cup.
