First debuting in Fortnite during Chapter 2 Season 3, Loot Sharks provided players another way to defeat a computer character and pick up some game-changing items. Defeating Loot Sharks is usually a simple task with a squad, and can even be done alone with sufficient weaponry.

Unless of course, the Loot Shark just up and flies away. A recent glitch was recorded and posted to Reddit which showed exactly that, flying Loot Sharks. Check out the video here:

Loot Sharks have been known to jump out of the water at players who are attacking them, but this is like nothing seen before. As this squad attempts to defeat the Loot Shark, it flies way up into the sky and out of sight. It's safe to say that user u/highheights missed out on the items from this shark, but the clip has certainly gone viral.

At this time, it's still unclear what exactly caused the bug and whether or not it was a one-off or a chronic issue. Either way, players will be hoping for a quick fix from Epic Games to solve the issue.
