Epic Games has confirmed a problem with Fortnite’s Buried Treasure items, which means that tax cannot be reached.
The buried tax article has been added via Patch v8.01 and aims to give players another way to get a high value in Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode.
Since then, a video has arisen on / r / FortniteBR which shows a bug that causes the buried treasure to be placed between the new volcanic valves, making it inaccessible.

Sean Hamilton (MrPopoTFS), Community Coordinator at Epic Games, responded to the post with the following statement …
We never know what treasures are hidden under that valve. I have gone further and reported this question to our QA team, thank you for the video!
For the unconscious, usually Buried Treasure is in a random place on the Fortnite map. Every game, players who are lucky to find the map gets the chance to find and get hold of it.

Although this is a rather unusual bug, it is likely that a handful of players have experienced it. While not confirmed, the next patch will likely solve the problem.
Have you experienced any other errors with the new Buried Treasure item in Fortnite? Let us know.
