Players have discovered a bug with Fortnite Battle Royale’s buffed Slurp Juice Consumable.
The bug allowed players to gain the effect from Slurp Juice without actually consuming the item by using an emote to cancel the animation. This basically gave players an unlimited source of health and shields. Slurp Juice has now been disabled by Epic Games and will return once the issue has been fixed.
Due to an issue discovered with Slurp Juice, we’ve temporarily disabled it as we investigate the cause and work towards a fix.

Another item that was removed shortly after the release of yesterday’s update was the Remote Explosive. However, the item has since been reinstated.
Handle with care 💥
Remote Explosives have been re-enabled!
