Epic’s Trello board shows the currently known bugs Epic is currently working on for Battle Royale, Creative, Save the World, and Mobile.

Oddly enough, the duplication glitch that caused DreamHack to cancel the Fortnite Open is not on the board, but this is expected to resolve with Fortnite 16.30.

The official Fortnite Status account has been quiet about 16.30 up until this point.
