The immense popularity that Fortnite: Battle Royale has received in recent months has led it to become one of the most popular video games in recent history.

A major reason for the game’s immense popularity is the effort and dedication from developer Epic Games to consistently improve, adjust, and add to the game to keep it fresh and fun. 

However, despite this high level of popularity and success, the game has some issues and glitches which can hinder the gaming experience for Fortnite’s vast player-base.

While Epic have shown considerable effort in addressing these issues, it seems that as soon as one set of glitches get fixed, another batch pops up in their place.

There are currently two major issues in Fortnite that have been addressed by developers from Epic Games on Reddit.

The first involves hitching on the XBOX One, which involves a momentary lag freeze that can cause players to lose position and even get eliminated during the delay.

The second issue has to do with button delays on the Builder Pro controller layout that was recently added to the game.

This just goes to show that despite these issues, Epic Games continue to demonstrate how serious they take the Fortnite community and the importance of communicating with players to ensure that the game runs at a top level.

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.


Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
