Fortnite Guided Missile deactivated temporarily, Epic investigating issue

One of the game's more powerful weapons has to return to the operating room table for a bit.


The potential for massive destruction in Fortnite Battle Royale has been toned down just a bit. Due to an issue of some kind, Epic Games has deactivated the Guided Missile and is investigating the problem.

All is not lost, though, for those who wanted to wreak some havoc on other players online. Fortnite update v6.02 introduced the Quad Rocket Launcher alongside the Disco Domination limited-time mode, where players must use dance moves to control a space to win the match. So, you can either wreck players with rockets or rock the dance floor with some emotes. Your choice.

We'll update this Fortnite story when more information is made available or when the Guided Missile is live once again. Stay tuned to Shacknews.
