I hope you enjoyed your shopping spree, because this limited time offer has already expired.
The terrifying shopping cart, known by many to be the most dangerous opponent in all of Fortnite, was re-introduced for less than two hours before it was taken away once more.
After being initially removed for “ongoing issues”, including bugs that allowed players dismounting from shopping carts to clip through the map and fall to their deaths or clip through the map and become basically invincible to everyone else, they were brought back very briefly this morning only to be ripped from our arms once more.
The explanation for their latest removal? “Ongoing issues.”
We’re guessing that Epic thought they had seen the last of the mysterious bugs plaguing the cart, but such a short window of introduction is nothing short of bizarre. It doesn’t seem likely that Epic would have gone from patting themselves on the back and proud from a fixed issue to sweating bullets as they frantically took the item out again over the course of a single game.
Unless they joined the game themselves, eagerly hopped on a shopping cart, and immediately dismounted to trigger the bugs they thought they’d fixed, we’re guessing that this entire reintroduction was one big mistake.
Either that, or an Epic employee really loves playing with shopping carts, and decided to push out this update so they could ride around in style earlier today.
But until Epic finds a permanent solution to this issue, we’re hoping for no more April Fools re-introductions of the shopping cart. Please. Our hearts can only handle so much
