    @thekidlaroi please fix “What Just Happened”. I heard a leak and it sounds so good, but in the fortnite event, it sounds so boring. Like I need more bass and drums and shii

    of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of leek and doing about twenty minutes of fortnite dancing before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I was told there were no

    With this done, since no one from the crew got on to play Fortnite or Crash Team Racing, it's time to do this for a third and final time — in CHAOS!

  • __goodname__ lol (@__goodname__) reported

    Sorry for being late @FortniteGame, I was just distressed and heartbroken when I logged in today just to find even more emotes were added to the shop just to have my excitement killed when I realised I have to live yet another day without owning the "Get Griddy" emote, please fix

    @skurupii I wish I could, but Fortnite has made PC Fortnite so bad since Chapter 3 that I crash almost everytime I play on PC

  • KyNightmarex Ky Nightmare (@KyNightmarex) reported

    The hammer is dumb as **** and is broken. Why should I get hit for damage when someone is bouncing away?!?! @FortniteGame fix your weapons holy ****…

  • tectow Tector (@tectow) reported

  • TaborTimeYT Tabor Hill (@TaborTimeYT) reported

    @TypicalGamer @MustardPlays @FortniteGame Did you both upload it as "unlisted" or "public"? If at any time you put it as "PRIVATE", they'll hit you with this lickity split. I uploaded mine as unlisted and didn't see any issues, but I've had it do that in the past with PRIVATE videos.

  • BardotErica Erica Bardot (@BardotErica) reported

    @PhantomriderxX @NextGenPlayer Yay, Unreal engine 5. Turns on nanite in Fortnite and destroys frames completely. UE5 will fix nothing and create a whole new set of complaints. Gotham Knights devs took MONTHS to fix the stuttering while prioritizing every other fixable issue instead. No setting would fix it.

    @FortniteGame yeah i love that i heard NOTHING because it doesn't support lag control

  • TypicalGamer TG (@TypicalGamer) reported

    @MustardPlays @FortniteGame got the same issue right now, I'm sure they'll fix it soon

  • EmergencyCrayon Emergency Crayons (@EmergencyCrayon) reported

    @FortniteGame The problem I saw there was the lack of lore. Like, Ariana was a Last Reality distraction and all. Also, creative musical concerts have a severe problem to high latency players since if you lag during the song, all screens turn black and the experience is muted till the end.

  • NearlyMagic NearlyMagic (@NearlyMagic) reported

    @FortniteGame This guy is ugly as ****, also why can I shoot people for 0 damage?? Fix your game instead of doing awful creative events.

  • ilyk8e k8e 🫶 (@ilyk8e) reported
