One of the unannounced changes in the Fortnite v12.20 update was the removal of several Slurp Truck spawns from the game.
The lack of Fortnite patch notes continues to be a headache for anyone who takes the game seriously. We don’t know what changes are being made to fix short-term issues and which are intended problems.
A perfect example of this is the Harpoon Gun. In v12.20, players began to notice that the Harpoon didn’t snag floor loot the way it used to. The lack of patch notes forced players to investigate in order to find out that it is, indeed, a bug – rather than an intended change.
The same is now true for Slurp Trucks. After v12.20, players noticed that some of their go-to shield locations had been removed from the game.
The Slurp Trucks near Mount Kay, Slurpy Swamp, and the bridge to the East of Pleasant Park have all been taken out of Fortnite with no warning from Epic Games.
Now, the only Slurp Trucks can be found on the bridge north of Salty Springs, west of Sweaty Sands, northeast of Lazy Lake, and outside of Steamy Stacks.
The real problem with this removal is the fact that Slurp Trucks were experiencing bugs ahead of the patch. PC players were seeing a Slurp Truck where there was none, leading to a ton of confusion.
As of now, we don’t know if Epic removed these Slurp Trucks because they were experiencing issues, or if they’re gone for good. A line in the Fortnite patch notes would’ve cleared all of this up.
As always, the community is still working through the many unannounced changes in the most recent patch. Hopefully, this was the biggest news that slipped under the radar.
