Users that can’t craft Primal Fire Bows and Mechanical Bows in Fortnite’s Core modes must reboot the game to fix the glitch.

If playing in a Competitive playlist, then this is not a bug. Epic Games has disabled Primal Fire Bows in all Fortnite Competitive modes, due to balance concerns with the weapon. Many players believe that the Fortnite Primal Fire Bow is OP.

As for a Competitive mode “solution” to the issue, unfortunately, users can only wait and hope that Epic eventually reinstates Primal Fire Bows in Fortnite Competitive playlists. They’re at least still craftable and usable in Core modes until then — providing that the application has recently been reset, of course.

The Fortnite Primal Fire Bow Competitive ban applies to all versions of Fortnite. Just for reference, that’s: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Android, and iOS.
