Battle Royale:

Total Bars appearing as 0 in a match.

Description
Players may on rare occasion load into a match without their total Bars available, showing 0 in their persistent stash.

Don’t worry, your total collected Bars are still tracked – but collecting Bars in the match where they appear at 0 will not add to your cumulative total.

Workaround
Loading into another match should show your total collected Bars, however any collected in the match where they appeared 0 will not have been added.

Bars in Arena must be gathered in-match and your persistent stash is unavailable.
