CouRage reveals one thing Fortnite still can’t get right

Fortnite’s latest v8.10 update fixed a lot of bugs and added some new things, but streamer CouRage is still waiting on Epic Games to fix one crucial thing.

Players owe a lot of credit to Epic Games due to their track record with listening to players and the fact updates come weekly to Fortnite.


However, there’s one thing players have been wanting for quite some time now and that’s noise fixes. It has never been easy to tell where players are based on their footsteps and that is still a problem that plagues the game.

For the casual player, hearing footsteps is important but not completely crucial to the enjoyment of Fortnite.


However, this is completely different for pro players as they have to rely on sounds to get the edge on opponents. Not understanding the direction footsteps are coming from is a very important thing that needs fixing.

Epic GamesFootsteps are tough to decipher in Fortnite, especially in Tilted Towers.

CouRage, a pretty common name to see connected to Fortnite esports and popular streamer, shared his displeasure with how Epic Games has not fixed this issue as of yet.

“I’ve played 9,000+ games and still couldn’t tell you if the enemy is above, below, or same level as me,” he wrote on Twitter.


CouRage is far from the only player to complain about this problem and he certainly won’t be the last.

Epic Games has done their part in fixing the sound for a lot of Fortnite but we’re still waiting on fixes to come to footsteps. Tilted Towers is where this problem truly shines as many of the buildings have multiple stories and there’s no real way to tell where your enemy is.

As bigger names share their displeasure it’s possible Epic Games will streamline this fix in future updates.


Until now, players just have to do their best with pinpointing enemy footsteps.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
