Compilation of everyone hating the Fortnite V8.30 update – Myth, Ninja and more

Fortnite is arguably in the worse state it’s ever been, since the launch of v8.30. This fan-made compilation shows what streamers have been saying about it.

If you’ve been following Fortnite streamers and pro players for a while, then you may have noticed the majority of them aren’t happy about the state of the battle royale title. 

A lot of the criticism stems from Epic Games removing siphon from regular lobbies, the introduction of The Baller and numerous unfixed glitches that remain in the game.

Epic GamesThe Baller has faced some scrutiny from Fortnite’s competitive community.

Players are not happy with Fortnite

Many players have reached their boiling point with frustrations spilling over on stream or in long Twitter threads.

This fan created a compilation of various clips from different streams, all showing the issues that are plaguing Fortnite. The video was uploaded to Reddit by user 2_clicks to the Fortnite Competitive subreddit.

The video features many prominent faces such as Ninja, Myth doing his best Tyler1 impression and numerous other streamers showing off a plethora of problems still in the game.

Some of the things you can look forward to seeing in the video are phantom shotgun bullets, players being eliminated through their builds, having the ability to build just blocked, among other things. 

Fortnite certainly has a long way to go for it to get back to a better state and with the World Cup beginning on April 14 with qualifiers, it looks like a lot of these issues will continue to be in the game going forward.

The Ballers will be in Fortnite for at least the start of the World Cup

Epic Games released a hotfix to nerf The Baller’s health on April 11, but a section of the game’s online community is still calling for an outright removal for them.

It seems unlikely Epic Games will actually take them out of the game in the near future, as criticisms have been there from the start regarding the vehicle.

Players probably didn’t anticipate a more annoying vehicle coming to Fortnite after the planes were removed, but that’s exactly where we are.

Where to find Fortnite Iron Man jetpacks

After many long months, the fan-favorite jetpack has finally been re-added to Fortnite. This time however it’s straight from Iron Man, due to the special Marvel-themed season. Here’s a simple guide for how you can get your hands on the item.

One of the more interesting and least-hated items added to Fortnite since its launch is the jetpack. After being available in normal modes for a while, the item quickly became a fan-favorite, and getting one was pretty much required if you wanted to stand a chance in the final couple circles.

Epic Games decided to remove the item back in 2018 and instead, limited it to a number of different LTMs. Now, it seems like the developer has at least temporarily reversed course, as the item is now spawning in the base game again with a Marvel-themed twist.

What is the Iron Man jetpack?

From everything we’ve seen, it appears as if the Iron Man jetpack operates basically the same way the older jetpack did back in 2018, and that this new item is basically just a simple cosmetic re-skin.

The jetpack takes the slot of one of your items on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. If you want to use it though, you don’t have to have the item selected. All you need to do is jump and then hold down the jump button in order to raise yourself into the air, allowing you to use your weapons. Operation, as expected, is fairly simple.

Where can I find the Iron Man jetpack?

Apparently, the only place to find the Iron Man jetpack is as floor loot appearing randomly around the map for the moment. There doesn’t appear to be any specific, sure-fire, place to find it, so you’ll just have to keep looking until it pops up.

The item also doesn’t seem to show up from chests, which means it’s even harder to find than some weapons and other items. Of course, this could all change as time goes on.

It’s currently unknown how long the item will be in the game for, although logic would dictate that the longest it would be available would be the end of the current season given its Marvel theme.
