Why is the Dragon Rune Lance disabled in Fortnite

The Fortnite Dragon Rune Lance is a harvesting tool available through the Season 3 Battle Pass, and is part of the Dragon Rider Set built around the Adira character. Depending on how much progress you’ve made in Fortnite this season you might not have seen it yet, as it’s on Page 3 of the Battle Pass which unlocks at Level 20, but it’s currently causing a bit of a commotion as the Fortnite Dragon Rune Lance has been disabled.

Clearly this will be a much bigger issue for players who have already unlocked this pickaxe and are actively using it, but naturally if there’s a problem with it then everyone wants to know what that is, especially if it was giving an unfair advantage to those who were equipping it. We’re here to answer those questions, so here’s an explanation of why the Dragon Rune Lance has been disabled in Fortnite and when we expect it to come back.

So when will the Fortnite Dragon Rune Lance be back? Clearly the muted footsteps effect is a glitch rather than intended behavior for this item, and as it was giving players an unfair competitive edge it’s only right to take it down until it can be fixed. As the Dragon Rune Lance is part of the Battle Pass and plenty of players will already have spent their Battle Stars to unlock it, Epic will want to get a correctly functioning harvesting tool back into the system as soon as possible. This may be resolved by a quick hotfix, or included in an upcoming set of Fortnite patch notes, but you can rest assured that it shouldn’t be long before you can use the Dragon Rune Lance again – just without the unintended benefit from this pickaxe.
