Epic Games have announced they will be issuing compensation and a bonus for players affected by the Blackheart and Hybrid Challenge glitch in Fortnite.

Players have reported a glitch where the Blackheart and Hybrid Style Challenges are not showing up in their list of challenges, even though they had unlocked the skins in the previous season.

Epic Games have just announced that there will be a full fix in v9.01 for players affected by this bug and they will be compensated for any complete challenge prior to the glitch. Not only that, players will also be provided with a bonus, although the bonus has not been announced.

This glitch is happening to me and it is quite aggravating. If they do issue v bucks to people with the glitch, how much would it be? Hopefully enough to buy the battle pass, because I haven’t gotten it yet.

And why the heck would they wait until the next content update to fix this issue? That’s pretty dumb.
