Xbox and PS4 Fortnite players have been experiencing footstep audio issues. Epic is investigating.
Update 3/5 12:20 EST: Epic has released a statement, saying that the footstep audio has been fixed. This quick-fix makes it seem like a short-term problem that’s only been in the game for a few hours, though many players have been reporting long-term issues of player footsteps. Is the issue really over? We shall see.
Original article: Have you been eliminated from behind in a recent Fortnite match? Did you rage and wonder why you didn’t hear the other player coming? You’re not alone.
This issue seems to have been in the game – in some form of another – since Fortnite’s release. It’s always been difficult to hear where your opponent is coming from – especially if they’re above or below you.
Well, apparently, part of the reason that console players have difficulty hearing footsteps is due to a bug. The Fortnite Status Twitter account posted about it today, March 5.
