An exploit in Fortnite that allowed players to cheat by killing from underneath the map has been fixed ahead of the planned roll-out of a new city.

The cheat, known as the Fatal Fields glitch, let players slip below the map and kill others without retaliation.

Developer Epic Games asked cheaters to be dobbed in by other players and has said it will deal with them in due course.

The fix comes ahead of the release of a map update that adds a new city to the Fortnite Battle Royale map, as well as new areas on the west side of the map in a bid to even the island out.
