Players have discovered a flaw with the new Fortnite Chug Splash item, where health is not granted on a specific instance.
Epic Games has been adding new weapons / items every week for some time now and the Chug Splash is the latest addition to the Fortnite Battle Royale and was added in the v9.30 update that happened yesterday.
The Chug Splash is a playable item, and at the moment of impact, players within the splash radius will instantly receive 20 hit points / shields for companions and enemies. Players can store up to six stacks in one inventory space and can even recover knocked players.
The Reddit user noticed that there is a flaw in the item, since players using the Bush item can not be cured by Chug Splash. They demonstrated the flaw in the video below:
You can not have health with Chug Splash if you are in a FortNiteBR shrub.

You can see in the video that the player playing Chug Splash is being cured by him and the player in the Bush is within the splash radius but is not being cured.
Epic is aware of this problem and has confirmed that it is working on a fix. The community coordinator of Epic Game, u / M_House_Epic, responded to the post with the following:
"We are currently investigating this issue. Thank you for pointing this out!
We will keep you updated as to when this issue is resolved, but for now do not try to heal players who are using Bush!
