Gold bars were introduced in Fortnite for Season 5 and they have remained in the game for Season 6. You can earn gold bars in many ways such as by completing bounty contracts, opening safes, and more. Collecting gold bars is extremely important since these serve as the in-game currency. You can use bars to purchase exotic weapons at NPCs, while Fortnite Season 6 also allows you to use them to become a prop. Now, a Fortnite Season 6 exploit has been discovered which allows you to earn a huge amount of gold bars in very little time.
The gold bar exploit was found by the Fortnite Youtuber, OrangeGuy. The Youtuber is known for finding glitches and exploits in the game. To take advantage of this exploit, you have to make your way to Slurpy Swamp and locate Slurp Jonesy. The NPC will have two quests for you to complete. The first quest you will have to do is destroy slurp barrels. This is very simple to complete, as Slurpy Swamp contains many of them. The second task requires you to get maximum health with shields. OrangeGuy does this by building next to some barrels to complete it quickly.
Get rich from the Fortnite Season 6 gold bars exploit
Once you have done this, you will earn a total of 320 gold bars. If you leave the match, you will keep the gold bars that you have earned. As such, you can repeat the process multiple times to rack up even more gold bars. According to OrangeGuy, you can get the maximum gold bars in around 20 minutes.
It will be interesting to see if Epic Games will respond to the Fortnite Season 6 gold bars exploit. Perhaps the location of the Slurp Jonesy NPC will be moved to make the process more time consuming, or the NPC could be given new tasks altogether.
