‘Fortnite’ re-enables funding stations after stability issues

Players can once again spend their gold bars

Funding stations have been added back into Fortnite, after Epic Games recently disabled them due to stability issues.

On April 5, the official Fortnite Status Twitter account put out a notice saying that funding stations had been temporarily disabled due to a “stability issue.” They had been down for around 30 hours, but were re-enabled the evening of April 6. While not a key aspect of winning a match of Fortnite, the funding stations are able to influence future additions to the game.

Funding stations were added as part of Chapter Three, Season Two of Fortnite, and allow you to donate gold bars to unlock new or vaulted weapons, items, or vehicles. One kind of funding station will have a goal that players need to reach by donating a certain amount of gold bars. Once the goal has been met, it will unlock something like a turret or a battle bus.


Alternatively, the other kind of funding station in Fortnite lets players vote by using their gold bars for one of two items they would rather have added to the loot you can pick up.

Recently, Fornite added in Assassin’s Creed skins to the game featuring series mainstay Ezio, and Valhalla newcomer Eivor. The outfits are available now, and aside from their respective outfits, they come with some extra cosmetics like Ezio’s Hidden Blade Pickaxe, which only Ezio can equip.

Eivor’s outfit has a Cloaked alt style, and it also comes with her Shield Back Bling and the Raven Clan Pickaxe.

In other news, Metroid Dread has received a new update that introduces a new boss rush mode that pits players against 12 bosses in a row, with damage transferring from one fight to the next.


Survival and Dread Rush have also been added, for players looking for another challenge.
