Why Fortnite Gold Bars Have Disappeared From Players' Account
A nasty glitch is behind this mess!
Gold bars are one of the most important items you need in Fortnite for survival but several players are reporting that the gold bars have disappeared from their accounts.
Gold bars are a type of currency in Epic Game’s popular battle royale game Fortnite. Players can use the gold to buy weapons, upgrade them and get services from allies.
Now the gold bars aren’t that easy to obtain. It takes time to gather gold by completing bounties, eliminating other players, or by scouring the land for loot.
So it is not hard to imagine why players are upset to see all of their gold bars reset to zero overnight.
