Here are five situations where bugs have haunted Battle Royale tournaments.

Transparent wall (PUBG)

At the PUBG Invitational, held at the IEM Katowice 2018,OpTic Gaming lost $ 12,000 on account of cheating by a member of the team.

Although he claimed that it was an accident, other professional players said it is very difficult to capitalize on this big without intending to. Therefore, OpTic was punished by getting their points stripped from that specific round. They ended up falling from the first to the fifth pace and didn’t receive any awards.

Antigravity (Fortnite)

A bug gained popularity in the Fortnite Summer Skirmish finals, held in September 2018. In one of the games, the pro players who were still alive on the map began to fly. According to Epic Games, it was a very rare bug caused by the anti gravity fields on the map. Therefore, the developer chose to deactivate the fields in the other matches of the tournament and offered an extra match to the affected players.

Initially he was knocked out, but after a few seconds, was able to fire his weapons.

Knowing that there was nothing else to do, he dropped his mouse and keyboard. But when he paid attention to his knocked out character, he noticed that he could still move and that he had not died. When he realized the flaw that made him “invincible,” Marki continued to play normally.
