Fortnite Season 11 aka Fortnite Chapter 2 is live in the game. Fortnite Season 11 has added many new locations to the game including Holly Hedges, Dirty Docks, Frenzy Farm, Lazy Lake, Slurpy Swamp, Weeping Woods and Beachy Bluffs.

Fortnite Chapter 2 has also added some new elements to the game. Players can now carry their downed teammates, and they can also provide bandages to them with the help of a new weapon, The bandage bazooka.

But there is one downside of equipping ‘The bandage bazooka’ weapon. It takes up two slots instead of one, so players will only be able to equip three more items. Several new emotes have also been added to the game including ‘High fives’ and others.

EmptyTux, an Epic Games representative, has taken this matter on Reddit and responded to it. He has confirmed that “Carrying and throwing an enemy player will not trigger a team warning/ban.” Well, if it is consistently happening with many players, then it can be a bug which needs to be addressed by Epic Games.

For a quick refresher, Fortnite Chapter 2 has added haystacks and dumpsters for players to hide. Players can also take their enemies and opponents by surprise with the help of Gas Tanks and explosive barrels.
