A new set of weekly challenges is now available for Fortnite on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and iOS. Unfortunately, there also appears to be a newly discovered bug in the game that presents some problems for one of this week’s objectives.

Players are reporting on Reddit that damage caused by Grenades isn’t being counted toward the “deal damage with a Clinger, Stink Bomb, or Grenade” challenge. Likewise, players on Epic’s forums say they’ve experienced a similar issue with the Clinger; according to these users, the game inconsistently counts the damage Clingers deal toward their progress.

This is problematic because the challenge in question can only be completed using the three specified weapons. With two-thirds of them effectively unusable due to this bug, it becomes much more difficult to clear the objective. Epic hasn’t publicly addressed the issue as of this writing, although the studio typically resolves issues with the game quickly.

This certainly isn’t the first time a problem has arisen in Fortnite that prevented players from completing a weekly challenge. Last week, Epic had to temporarily disable the shopping cart and ATK due to a bug. As a result, players weren’t able to finish the flaming hoops challenge, which hinged entirely upon leaping through the hoops using either of the vehicles.

Fortunately, players have the entire season to complete Fortnite’s challenges, so there’s still plenty of time to get your Battle Stars. While you wait for Epic to resolve the Grenade issue, you can complete some of this week’s other challenges, such as following a treasure map found in Snobby Shores.
