While Fortnite Season 6 kicked off with a bang, Epic’s latest iteration of the BR is far from glitch-free. A new exploit is allowing players to infinitely spam the new chicken jump ability, resulting in some hilarious aerial acrobatics.
Dexerto says “Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 — otherwise known as Primal — kicked off on March 16 with a unique story mission in addition to the usual map updates, new battle pass, and other seasonal content for players to enjoy.A large content drop like this is sure to introduce some unexpected bugs and glitches. Players are already finding ways to break the new version of Fortnite, including some exploits that are giving players a chance to grind out crazy amounts of currency.It turns out that yet another in-game exploit has been discovered, this time involving one of the animals added in the BR’s new season: chickens. This bug gives players a permanent boost to their jumping ability, resulting in some crazy antics and potentially game-breaking advantages.”
Infinite jump exploit
In a video posted to the game’s subreddit, a player shared an experience with the hilarious chicken glitch. In the clip, the character was seen running along while holding a chicken above their head, and taking advantage of the animal’s unique jump boost ability.
The clip took a crazy turn, however, when the chicken suddenly disappeared, but the player continued to experience the same jump boost that the animal provided before. “At first the player wasn’t fully aware of the strange occurrence, but quickly realized what was going on.”
“I think the chicken just glitched,” they explained to their teammate, and continued “Yeah, there’s no chicken but I [still] have the chicken [jump] ability.” The player showed how broken this glitch was by quickly climbing the Spire, and totally outpaced the game’s regular movement.
“New glitches will pop up less frequently as the game settles into a more balanced state, but players are certainly finding ways to exploit the BR’s new content in the meantime. Stay tuned for updates from Epic as they work to restore the game’s proper pecking order in Season 6.”
Joining Call of Duty in an effort to add some suspicion to proceedings, Fortnite is allegedly due to get an Among Us style mode.

Dexerto says “While most of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7’s weekly challenges have so far revolved around alien invaders, Week 7’s Legendary quests are a little more obscure, with players needing to find Records and collect Parenting Books from various locations. Another strange quest asks players to construct a Wooden Hatchery, which is used to hold eggs. Whether this is meant for the chickens that run wild around the Island or the recent Alien Parasite invaders, we’ll have to wait and see. We doubt players are going to spend too much time debating the purpose of this quest, though, so let’s get straight to the
