A bug with Fortnite’s planes renders them completely useless on console

A bug with Fortnite’s X-4 Stormwing attack planes makes them extremely powerful on PC but completely unusable on the console version of the game.

Since their addition to the Battle Royale back at the start of season seven, the Stormwing’s have caused plenty of problems for all players, despite being nerfed pretty heavily just over a week after their release.

Now, they may need more changes made to them as players have begun noticing a huge difference in how they operate on the PC version of the game compared to the console counterpart.

Fortnite IntelThe planes have gotten less annoying throughout the season – but they can still dominate a game.

In a post to the FortniteBR subreddit, user Skidsy19 demonstrated the difference between just how accurate the Stormwing’s machine gun is on PC compared to a console, in this case, a PlayStation 4, by shooting rounds of bullets directly at a target in Tilted Towers.

On PC, the machine gun pretty much fires wherever the on-screen crosshair is pointed – in a laser-like fashion, without much change of direction. However, on the console, the gun’s bullets don’t follow the crosshair and seemingly have a mind of their own, going wherever they please.

As Skidsy19 points out, plenty of players are unaware of the difference as they don’t play the game on both platforms – but for those that do, it’s a problem. With Fortnite Season 8 on the horizon, and so to the potential for the Stormwings to be vaulted, it remains to be seen if a change will be either way to address the bug.

 Apex Legends, they may want to address a number of big issues within their own title.

When is Halo coming to Fortnite? Skin release date, Winterfest, more

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Mando and The Child are in Fortnite Season 5.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
