Fortnite players have discovered that there is a bit of an issue with the game, in that your crosshair isn’t actually on the center of the screen – but now we know how to fix it.

Obviously, in any shooter game, be it first-person or third-person, you want to make sure you’re shooting at your optimum ability. Getting eliminations is the name of the game.

Even if you think your aim is spot on, perfect aim can’t be achieved when the game itself isn’t allowing you to do so, and that appears to be what’s happening in Fortnite.

Some players have started to find that at the root of Fortnite’s data on their PCs, the crosshair placement is actually slightly off-center – causing issues for everyone.

Thanks to JpIsTrasher on Reddit, there’s a way to get your crosshair pixel-perfect in the center of the screen. So let’s take you through it and get the problem fixed.

At a native resolution, for example, 1920×1080, you might not be able to get the crosshair dead on, but it’s worth trialing to see how to optimize your game as much as possible. Here are the steps to getting your Fortnite crosshair centered:

  1. Go to %localappdata%
  2. Click on fortnitegame > saved > config > windows client > gameusersettings
  3. In your settings search for windowposx and windowposy
  4. If set to -1, set to 0

Whether placebo or not, many commenters on the Reddit post say that it made the game feel better after making the change, so there could be some serious advantages to making this minor change.

Although it’s only one slight pixel of difference, it seems to be worth trying this out and seeing whether it increases your Victory Royale potential, After all, that one pixel could be the difference between an elimination or being sent back to the battle bus.


How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
