Fortnite Bug Hysterically Shrinks Players Using The Leprechaun Skin (VIDEO)
Epic Games’ Fortnite has been taking the gaming world by storm lately. Outside of battling PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for the top spot in the battle royale market, the game has found success by expanding its reach onto different platforms, streamers have been absolutely loving the title, and it just seems to provide a ton of fun. Speaking of streamers, popular Twitch user Ninja recently encountered a humorous Fortnite bug that appears to shrink players that are using the leprechaun skin.
Bugs and glitches are certainly common in many games, often leading to different outcomes: Either they have hilarious results, or they can be downright frustrating. Luckily, the latest Fortnite bug seems to fall under the former of the two. Check it out for yourself below:
In the video above, we can see Ninja in the middle of a match as he encounters another player. While finding a way to take down this unwanted foe, he notices something is a bit odd. The enemy that stood before him was much shorter than himself. While the Fortnite bug gave the leprechaun skin-wearing player an advantage, they were still no match for the popular streamer. Of course, this has led many to wonder if the bug was intentional. Given the timing of its occurrence, it’s hard to imagine that coincidence was the only thing at play here. Epic Games’ Nick Chester, however, stated that it was not deliberate. He even had to do a double-take, saying:
Seriously so funny. For a second I though “maybe that WAS intentional and I just missed it?” I mean, they hot fixed a rainbow into the map yesterday for the weekend out of the blue, so… 🤷🏻♂️ 😂
