Epic Games (developers of Fortnite) announced they will be temporarily disabling a weapon in Battle Royal. The Boogie Bomb has a bug, which was recently discovered, so it’s been removed until the team can fix it.
Epic announced the removal today via their Twitter, stating “Due to a bug with the Boogie Bomb, we’re going to be temporarily disabling it until we’re able to fix it. We’ll update you once this issue is solved.” As implied by the name, Boogie Bomb forces a player to dance for a set amount of time (or until damage is received). On Reddit, a post was put up revealing an exploit which allows players to carry infinite amounts of items.

So by bombing themselves, the game was letting players pick up an unlimited number of items. This is obviously beyond the 5 item limit. Epic is working to resolve the bug, but no timeframe was given as to when the Boogie Bomb will be released again.
