Fortnite's Season 6 update has introduced a new exploit to the game which allows players to quickly max out their gold stash. The method, which involves continuously completing two challenges offered by Slurp Jonesy in Slurpy Swamp, is quite simple and can produce hundreds of gold bars every few minutes.

Epic Games rolled out Chapter 2 Season 6 of Fortnite on March 16. The latest update brought significant map changes and the first single-player narrative experience in the game's history, Zero Crisis Finale. It seems that, with the latest readjustments, Epic Games made a small mistake by allowing the unlimited gold bar exploit to slip through the cracks.

Fortnite Season 6 Update Introduces Unlimited Gold Bars Exploit

Fortnite YouTuber, "OrangeGuy", who has discovered glitches and exploits in the past, uploaded a video on Wednesday showcasing the method for acquiring unlimited gold bars. According to them, it only takes roughly 20 minutes to obtain max gold using the exploit.

By completing two Slurp Jonesy challenges in Slurpy Swamp, "Destroy SLURP Barrels" and "Reach 100 Health and Shield", players will be rewarded with 320 gold bars. Since the bars carry over to new matches, players can then continue to leave their match, join a new one, and complete the tasks once again to obtain more. By repeating this process a few times, players will be able to easily amass the maximum amount of gold bars.

The exploit will not provoke a ban, since it does not involve any actual cheating. Players are simply taking advantage of a poor game design decision made by Epic Games, who have yet to announce what they may do to address the issue.
