We have some bad news for Fortnite: Battle Royale players, the servers are down!

Celebrities, athletes and various high-profile personalities alike have expressed their love for the game, with Fortnite becoming a "pop culture" icon at the turn of 2018. Checking the Fortnite status page on Epic's website suggests that the developer is in the process of installing major upgrades to its database systems for the game.

Currently, Epic says there is no ETA for when the servers will be back up, but the Fortnite Twitter account has promised hourly updates. With the new update, Fortnite's guided missiles have been removed or disabled.

It seems, however, that in a report via PCGamesN, a major issue with the game's servers has the game now down and it's looking like a solution will be found quickly either. So hopefully you'll be playing Fortnite without any weird tricks soon.

Numerous professional gamers and other industry insiders have come up with their reviews by saying that they have permanently removed the Guided Missiles weapon from the game entirely and there's no way to get it back.
