Epic Games just suspended all travels through secret passages until further notice. Though it isn’t known what the underlying issue is behind the decision, Epic announced it was working on fixing the setback and would provide more updates once it was resolved.
Secret Passages were added to the game as a part of the Chapter Two storyline, and they have been a vital part of most player movement and looting patterns.
Due to an issue, we’re temporarily disabled the ability to travel with secret passages.

A Secret Passage allows players to get in and out of safe houses, allowing them to take their time while looting. This exit strategy will not be available until Epic fixes the issue, however, and all Secret Passage entrances are now regular hiding spots you can enter.
Absence of the Secret Passages v bucks generator will make helicopters, boats, and rideable sharks the only way to get out of the crowded points of interest. The competition to get one of those vehicles can be significantly harder for the time being, so we recommend landing and looting safely until the issue gets resolved.
You can keep an eye on Fortnite’s status on its Twitter page, and start wreaking havoc by using the Secret Passages, once they become available, before anyone else.

You’ll only find videos dating one year back in his channel although he started streaming on Twitch in 2018. The 16-year-old joined the team last year and is known to be one of the best players in the world, having qualified for the Fortnite World Cup five times.
Dubs has been recently involved in controversy. He was suspended for 30 days after Epic v buck generator Games determined that he partnered up with “Waffles” in the in May 1 Solo Cash Cup to take down other solo players who landed at their POI.
Despite the incident, Dubs is still a good player and fans can replicate his settings to try to accomplish his skills.
Dubs’ video settings
The best graphics with all the video settings set to high can be pleasing, but it’s not the most efficient when playing competitively. That’s why Dubs’ settings are set at low or off, except for his View Distance, which is set on Epic, since he needs to see other players waiting or passing by from as far as possible.
