Fortnite Disables ATK/Shopping Cart, Presenting An Issue For Flaming Hoops Challenge
The vehicles have been temporarily removed due to a bug.
The shopping cart is causing problems once again in Fortnite: Battle Royale. Developer Epic announced it has had to disable the vehicle--along with the new ATK that was introduced in Season 5--in all game modes temporarily due to an unspecified bug.
The timing for this issue is especially problematic, as one of the new Week 4 challenges tasks players with jumping through flaming hoops using the shopping cart or ATK. Epic hasn't indicated how long the vehicles will be disabled, only noting that they'll be taken out of the game until the issue has been resolved, so you may have to wait a while to complete the flaming hoops challenge if you haven't already done so.
The shopping cart--Fortnite's first vehicle--has been an ongoing source of problems since it was added to the game back in June. Epic has had to pull the vehicle multiple times due to various issues that have arisen with it, and it's taken varying degrees of time to return to the game after each removal. However, this marks the first time the ATK, the new golf cart-like vehicle that was added at the start of Season 5, has had to be removed.
Epic says it will provide an update once the issue with the shopping cart and ATK has been resolved. In the meantime, while you may not be able to tackle the flaming hoops challenge, there are a number of other tasks to do right now in Fortnite: Battle Royale, such as searching between a gas station, soccer pitch, and Stunt Mountain. You can see all the challenges available so far in our complete Fortnite Season 5 challenges roundup.
You also still have a little more time to take part in Fortnite's special birthday challenges, which will be available until August 7. Completing all three of the challenges will net you special birthday-themed rewards, including a birthday cake back bling. You can also still try the game's latest limited-time mode, Fly Explosives.
