Well, there is a catch! A bunch of Fortnite players across the globe are facing a peculiar problem. After completing five mission, they are rewarded the red Pixel Pilot and Cosmic Cleavers, but those goodies are not actually accessible to them.

I completed five challenges and got gameplan and eternal voyager’s red variant, but these won’t open. Bug or do i have to finish the out of time challenges?



I’ve completed all but one Out of Time challenge and that last challenge is outlive players. When I complete the last mission do I get the red option for the Eternal Voyager’s pickaxe and glider?


Due to the enormous amount of bug reports, Epic Games quickly issued the following statement in the r/FortNiteBR subreddit:

Thanks for the report! We’re working on a fix to grant the harvesting tool and glider variant to everyone who unlocked the red outfit style.


A few minutes ago, Fortnite acknowledged the existence of the glitch via their official Twitter handle. They are currently investigating the situation, albeit there is no ETA given for the fix to roll out.
