A dev must've got killed by a symbiote and got laughed on so they ended it early.

Honestly I hope they did.

*and im not so sure i like it*


maybe-me

“Due to an issue” lol


gustavossj

They were an issue to begin with.


Bilbo_Teabagginss

Good riddance


XenoSecant

I understood that reference


bigmean3434

The issue was they added them….


b4ddm0nk3y

Won plenty of fights with and against the symbiotes 🤷‍♂️. They were fine.


CashForRedditGold

I seemingly got one pumped every time I tried to use them. Would grab an opponent and they would be ready for it and headshot me at close range the second I did it


pmjm

I discovered the key to using the attack effectively was to wait until your opponent was specifically NOT ready for it. For example, when third-partying it's a great opening attack when your target is engaged with someone else and doesn't see it coming. Or if they're in a box shielding up, or not facing you. More than the attack though, it was the MOVEMENT that came in clutch. The extra jump height and speed allowed you to outmaneuver and even outbuild opponents.


b4ddm0nk3y

My point exactly. The one being pulled has advantage. Also you can spot a them miles away. Snipe em lol


StopMockingMe0

With what sniper?


VacaDLuffy

The automatic sniper rifle. I killed loads of symbiotes that way.


Brittany1967

>The automatic sniper rifle is good but the scope on it is meh > >The Scope on the Bolt Action Sniper Riffle is much better


HoodstarTHO

agreed


nolimits59

How is getting grabbed through 3 walls in 1s getting -60 while the symbiot squad spam you as you are grabbed and die instantly is any fair ? I abused it because it was here, but it was OP AF


oldmanlight

We get it, you’re good at Fortnite


b4ddm0nk3y

Nope just know how to counter an ever changing meta. Adapt and overcome 🤷‍♂️


oldmanlight

How do I counter a player suddenly shockwave grenading themselves 100’s of feet in the air and using the symbiote to grab people and fall to their death? I could’ve used this info weeks ago


Darktidemage

You can just not use the ability and have a permanent speed boost.... there is no countering that. negative 1 gun slot for the speed boost these give is OP as fuck.


b4ddm0nk3y

It’s a shame it doesn’t make a loud noise and show up on the map for everyone /s


Darktidemage

did you put an /s because of how stupid this point is to make? Like did you think the infinity blade was also cool?


b4ddm0nk3y

😉


yul_brynner

weirdo


pagerrager

Agreed. People really do overreact.


Pidgeon_v3

You're in bot lobbies then


faco_fuesday

Bot lobbies?


gabriel_GAGRA

Bots don’t use symbionts


b4ddm0nk3y

Lol you sir/ma’am are as funny as all the people you try to be…


Pidgeon_v3

But there's nothing funny about it, it's true. If you "win plenty of fights against" symbiotes you're playing in lobbies with absolute terrible players, anyone decent with it will win every time.


United-Pay9298

Yup, one pump them while going in, the user can’t do anything


b4ddm0nk3y

This guy gets it! Edit : or gal!


thatonemetalhead2

No you're just mad they countered building


bigmean3434

I actually am Not a builder. I am only Against them due to the lack of availability. If they countered building (all players can build) then they should be common on chests


DreamsofElihu

I loved them


Talyn7810

Bummer. I had fun with them and am by no means a good player. I do think they were broken when the shockwave was brought in. Don’t think epic saw that combo coming…


Arknauticore

I liked them. Sad to see em go. Understand why they were hated tho


pigeondude_

Yeah I'm in the lower half that liked them aswell. Still they were kinda op.


i_am_covered

Kinda they say. If they’d just done one of the things they’d be fine. Even two. But pull, damage, speed boost, and glider redeploy? Exceedingly OP.


gk99

They should've split the functions. Venom could've kept the grab-and-pull mechanic and redeploy, Carnage could've had a damaging symbiote punch instead with the speed boost. Venom would've been a more tactical symbiote that still required having good aim and skill while Carnage would've been all about rushing in, doing a chunk of damage, and getting out of the line of fire but still having to deal with fall damage and giving the other player a chance to hide and heal. I feel like it would've differentiated them and made more sense with their names, too. Venom on its own is harmless, you can literally drink certain real life venom and be okay, but if it's injected under the skin it's toxic. Carnage is literally defined as "the killing of a large number of people." It would've made **so much sense.**


i_am_covered

Man. Normally Epic does a fair job of balancing things. Might require an update or two but not removal of a core feature. Your solution is so much better than their implementation. Excellent idea.


VickyPedia

The worst part was that it did fall damage too.


anonymousperson767

Easily worse than the infinity blade.


i_am_covered

Hmmm that was gone so far we never really got to see it’s true power.


cake_n_bacon69

didn’t they nerf the infinity blade to death?


redditboi46

Im pretty sure it just got removed after one week without any nerf lmao


SpoonyGrandma13

The infinity blade was removed after 3 days


redditboi46

Well, less than i thought, it was fun while it lasted tho


pantherhollow2

But then the one added to creative and the sword fight Lin was less powerful.


redditboi46

Oh, i didnt know about that


bigmean3434

But wouldn’t you agree if there were like as many of them on the board as blue shotguns it would at least change the dynamic some? My problem isn’t with them or not, just if it is a part of the game make it a part of the game where last 15 people likely All have it or had the chance for it and turned it down.


pmjm

I liked them too, but the symbiote + impulse combo was nearly impossible to counter if you didn't also have a symbiote. Even if you killed your attacker you'd still die to fall damage.


Sebastianosul

coulda easily lowered the recharge rate and make the damage to 45 or 40


azul360

I just had fun watching someone build a tower before yanking them from it and destroying the tower in the process. It was so funny everytime XD.


Goldenleafwastaken

What was even the issue?


SkullMan140

If you died with them equipped and then were rebooted, you still had the effects of them on, even if they were not in your inventory anymore


guyadriano

Same thing with shotguns in team rumble which is why they are also disabled. When I died with the power up I got the same glitch


xdrunkagainx

Goldenleafwastaken

Oh thanks

Today is a good day


Bitasaur

No


pvsus

Found the loser that spams the mythic


GreyDooms

It’s a fun item, you’re not a loser if you use it lol. I enjoyed it, but I didn’t go for it every match


pvsus

I know its fun but its extremely anger when the person spams it nonstop


Bitasaur

Proud of it


pvsus

Fair enough


sansgamer554

Same


Ultimate-Papyrus

Sadge, they were fun to use. I hope they're added to creative.

Billyb311

W I can play again without consistently being bullshitted


Hade1z

Definitely a huge victory, now I won’t have to anticipate the grab when ever I verse someone with the mythics.


Billyb311

I was just tired of getting pulled to my death I play 15 minutes of a match just to come upon someone with a shockwave launcher pulling me outta nowhere to my death Super frustrating and anti-climatic


Hade1z

Man that combo is broken. Sometimes I dispense the mythics in storm when they're in my use so it could be a fair game. Glad they're getting disabled.


bigmean3434

I applauded your sense of ethics sir. Before I learned how to use them properly I did the same cause I didn’t want it but sure as hell didn’t want to face someone with it.


BarbecueStu

I do this. I will often grab them and dump them somewhere out of the way, if not the storm. Did it with ufos at the beginning of seven, as well.


Relative-Meringue136

Pretty sure I haven’t used the mythic at all, every time I killed someone that had it I didn’t really care to pick it up.


unaviable

Ah yes the duality of this community


simmbolic

L for the 30 some odd solo wins I got with it, and the hundreds of sweats I'm going to be matched with now thanks to sbmm. I guess it's time for arena atleast if I'm gonna try hard and have box fights it can be worth something.


Inspirational_Lizard

Issue being extremely op.


XRuinX

Wait, what does it mean "disabled"??? I literally just downloaded the game yesterday and bought the battle pass so i could unlock carnage.


va_wanderer

There was an in-game weapon called the symbiote- a red one for Carnage, a black one for Venom. Aside from having a grab-and-damage move that punched through multiple builds, it boosted runspeed, jump range, and gave you glider redeploy. That's what got disabled. The Venom and Carnage skins are just fine and aren't going away.


XRuinX

phew, i was about to be pretty upset lol thanks for the clarification.


get_no_scoped_kid

Can't wait for the mechs


zsantiag

Welp at least my final vic roy with the symbiote mythic was against someone using the other symbiote. 😅


toxictrooper5555

Good bye my old friend, and may the force be with you.


summertime_rayblu

Lolo, this is the best one of those item removals due to an "issue" ever.


PowerPamaja

I remember mechs being disabled due to an issue during a few points in season x (before the last weeks were the mechs were permanently gone). Those were some of the best times of season x. But man did epic work fast as hell to get those mechs working again. They’d be back up in a day or two. Zip lines were also disabled for issues I think but it took like a week to get those working again.


Dadjokes4u2c

It was something to do with you dying them with them in your inventory then being rebooted. Kept the effects or something.


summertime_rayblu

Still, it's amazing because of how it ended up leading to this thing getting removed


Mr_Seesy

I mean logically speaking why waste effort fixing something that is going to get perma removed in 5 days. Seems better to just end it when everyone was eventually anticipating it


Ifuckinghatepelly

I can finally play without being bullshitted out of a win because of those.


Londemoon

SAY IT LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK

Hallelujah! I may finally be able to turn my personal record of 2nd places in a season into a record number of victory royales in a season.


Chimpanzee_Teeth

Fucking A, everytine I make top 2 it seems I got the guy with that stupid thing.


Figs000

Perhaps we were top 2 because they eliminated everyone else before we got a chance lol /s


Chimpanzee_Teeth

I get top two all the time. Can never clutch it's I average about 2-3 kills a game. Not a sweat by any means just cautious.


vasekgamescz

due to an issue we disabled: Fortnite


acenface22

Due to an issue we’ll be disabling Fortnite


ReguIarHooman

Easy kills with people gliding. Now no more easy kills and no sweat indicator


NoobLegend6009

No more symbiotes since y’all can’t behave


Dgero466

Fuck.


spyrolt253

Due to an issue. There’s no more carnage


YT_DJVV

I think it was because of a duplication glitch..


DomcziX

Symbiotes was fun


ayeonguu_

i was having a glitch where if u had a symiote (i was using the carnage one when i found this) and used the cube shafow thingys it wouldnt apply the speed boost


absolutelad_jr

Literally every time I check their Twitter it's either BUY OUR NEW SKINS NOW or DUE TO AN ISSUE


-Aheli

hey epic now would be a great time to pull out the ol' guided missile trick and delete them from the files


xXBloodStoneXx

I would like to personally hit the delete button


AbletonRinzler

Farewell, Venom and Carnage Symbiotes. We won't miss you.

Ggreenrocket

Very innovative, someone uses a shock wave and gets a free kill.


-BailOrgana-

Innovative doesn’t have to mean overpowered. The metal walls have been a beautiful addition and are balanced.


Ifuckinghatepelly

“Innovative” *literally just a copy paste of the one from season 4 except more OP*


That1guy4269

Yeah that is getting annoying


NotACaveiraMain

I don't know what was the "issue" but I'm glad


Suspicious_Fortune65

If you die while having the mythic and get rebooted,you have all abilities except grab


Prof_Chimpzilla

Thank fuck! I’d rather sprint into oncoming traffic then play this game with these in it


OfflineMystery

dont agree with your opinion on the mythics but upvoting cause this comment was funny as fuck


KawaiiKoalaxo

DEFINITELY_NOT_LOKI

Leo9991

Was the issue that they shouldn't have been added to the game in this state to begin with?


Dadjokes4u2c

It was something to do with you dying them with them in your inventory then being rebooted. Kept the effects or something.


Effective-Interest28

LOL, exactly. Especially not with the shockwave launcher also in the game.

Blue_bell88

They were fun didn't hate them. I don't build so i can see where builders would hate it. Adios


anonymousperson767

They were OP because there was no counter to them. Build? Get grabbed and pumped. Don't build? Get grabbed and pumped. Run away? Get glided on and pumped.


Human-Reality-1914

Symbiote my beloved


Xx_Rick_Rolled_xX

pincheARCEUS

Can't have fun shit anymore I guess.


Camanot

What made them be taken off early? Were they just too overpowered and epic just realized?


the_fool213912893

I think it was because of the reboot bug


Camanot

Reboot bug?


the_fool213912893

I think I saw a post on it earlier, basically if you died while holding the symbiote you'd keep the movement/jump boost and glider redeploy when you were rebooted.


Camanot

So you would still have it on even if you don’t have the symbiote


the_fool213912893

Yeah, you'd keep everything except the grab.


Camanot

I can see how thats op

Bruh these were my favorite weapons


Mint_BookYT

Why are they getting rid of them I loved them They are the only good mythic ever after season 5


Gmeister-Primus

Saw someone win a game doing a symbiote grab + shockwave launcher combo which just destroys players from that height!


Leo9991

I got multiple wins doing that lol. Absolutely broken.


64BitDragon

NOOOO, I wanted to play one more day with them… :(


babykevincube

About time


NDKwizard

the people saying these items were fun definitely havent played against them lol, broken ≠ fun


Salty_Lengthiness_62

YEEAAAAAAH FINALLY !!! On a side note : I know, I know, some of you may have fell in love with the symbiotes, you may think only pros would complain, buuuuut... that ain't the case, those thing were absurdibly strong. A pro with a mythic would most likely get every legendary gun/item, meanwhile the rest of the player would have an average equipment (like, blue rarity). And, let's be real here, there is almost no way (I said almost) to counter this. It's just way too op with fast cooldown and redeploy.


OfflineMystery

its supposed to be op though, thats what a mythic is bruh


That1guy4269

Ok, we get it, jesus


Renagade147

Now the shockwave launcher has a good purpose! Tired of dying to fall damage from the launcher/mythic combo. I'm perfectly happy with this.


Jaden2479

I’m really gonna miss them.. they were so fun


Mango_AT

WOOOHOOOOOOOO YEAHHHHHHH


AngryMoose125

Goodbye symbiote mythics. You shall forever be missed


guffan88

Nooooooo


Hockex-4

oh no it's funny items!? impossible WE NEED TO DESTROY THEM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE


OfflineMystery

glad you're getting upvotes


Yaboikelvie

Who cares if they were overpowered they were fun


nineinchgod

Man, lots of butthurt cryhards celebrating in here. Just get good, nubs.


ElderBeard_The_Gnome

how was one supposed to get good against the shockwave grab, the only counter was having a symbiote yourself ​ If you have to rely on mythics, you aren't good.


OfflineMystery

who said i have to rely on mythics, i was easily able to counter them


Charz3n

I really hope they come back in some capacity, the best weapons of this season and perfect to counter any sweats that come rushing at me or just to unbox somebody, why must you take out all the fun epic?


0n1oN_71

The sooner the better


That1guy4269

I know we hate those things but I'm gonna miss speeding around the map with chilis


LordKiteMan

Le Epic: Due to an issue, we have also disabled shotguns in Team Rumble.


Thats_A_Good_Wisdom

I genuinely thought this was a joke and that when I clicked I would see the meme tag. Then slowly realized that this was actually happening. It's odd to me that this is somehow both surprising and not surprising at all, at once.


ViperFromTitanfall2

Oh no! What a shame! /s
