Epic Games has announced on its official Twitter account that will remove the Junk Rift from Fortnite: Battle Royale, At least for the moment. The item was released with Fortnite patch V10.10 and, as we already anticipated, it has turned out to be a weapon too powerful, which has compromised the stability of the video game. This is the second item so far this season that has created this situation. First was the STUPID, which has already received a major nerf, and is now the Junk Rift.
Due to an issue with the Junk Rift, we have disabled them in all game modes.
