Fortnite’s recent “Ghost Peeking” fix has resulted in some skins, or outfits, blocking the vision and crosshair for players.

The issue has been highlighted by a number of community members, including Gozumir and Grass—Tastes_Bad on Reddit.

In a post titled “Current ADS state is terrible”, Gozumir stated “For those who have yet to notice, your character eats up the left half of your screen, going as far as obstructing your own crosshair for certain skin (hello cuddle team leader), making it extremely difficult to properly aim.”

Grass—Tastes_Bad’s post highlights the issue by showing an image of him using the “Cuddle Team Leader” skin, with the ear covering the middle of the screen and his crosshair.

One of the responses to the image is simply “Ghost peeking was a serious problem, but they fixed it by adding a whole new problem.”


The Ghost Peeking fix was implemented as part of the V5.10 update and was supposed to stop you from being able to shoot an opponent over a ramp without them being able to see you.

This was happening due to Fortnite’s animation system making adjustments to the feet of a character so that they were always positioned well.

The fix seems to have had the desired effect in terms of “Ghost Peeking”, but it has clearly come with some issues of its own.

With posts already making it to the top of /r/FortniteBR, Epic Games is sure to see the outfit glitch and implement a fix in the near future.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
