Epic has officially warned players of the missing inventory bug. Interestingly, compensation is being prepared.
Bugs are an integral part of all games, including Fortnite. The latest bug with one of the emotes causes all inventory to disappear. This applies to Save the World as well as Battle Royale, although in BR the consequences are smaller.
Epic has officially confirmed that players will receive some compensation, but it is not known what exactly it will be.
What is the error?
It turns out that using the built-in Wolverine emote causes the inventory to disappear. In Battle Royale mode, specific items, such as Wolverine Gloves, are disappearing.
The integrated Wolverine Emote can delete weapons from your inventory. Please do not use it during the match. We will soon compensate for this inconvenience.
The most interesting part, of course, is “we will compensate for this inconvenience”. Will it be V-Bucks, or maybe some free cosmetic item, or just a bug fix? Unfortunately, it is not known.
