Cosmetic Issues - Let Us Know

Posted by Twigsby on 6/6/2019

Hey folks,
Over the last several seasons you’ve noticed and reported cosmetic bugs that have slipped through the cracks. Thanks to this, we’ve been able to escalate and triage these issues so we can work towards fixing them. We want to let you know that we are actively working on addressing known issues that we’ve found internally, and the ones you’ve brought to our attention online.

As Fortnite continues to grow and we continue to make improvements to the visual quality and performance of the game, sometimes you flip one switch and accidentally turn off another (not technical terms). With the large number of cosmetic options, the possibilities of combinations continue to stack week after week, and can cause unforeseen issues. The Good News! - We are actively working on our processes to catch more of these bugs before they go out the door. Hiccups will happen along the way (bugs slip by), but we want you to know we do see your reports and addressing them is a priority for our team.
