Fortnite Mobile is getting looked at a lot more closely.

While the PS4, Xbox One and PC version of Fortnite tend to get the most attention, the mobile and Nintendo Switch versions are just as important to the health of the game.

If you take a look at r/FortniteMobile on any given day you’re sure to see somebody reporting a bug or talking about the various issues with the port.

Epic Games has promised to focus more on these issues and released a blog post outlining what will be looked at with the game starting this month.

Mobile Issues Status – February 2019

‎2‎.‎1‎.‎2019
By The Fortnite Team

Heya folks,

We’re making a major shift internally to focus more on mobile issues, and this blog will serve as a central communication point for our progress over the next few releases–particularly top bugs and ongoing feature-work (e.g. A setting allowing you to use your Crosshair to edit).

Here’s a list of the top issues we’ve identified on mobile and plan to tackle first*:

  • Unable to Build
    • We are currently investigating a variety of building issues and hope to have more information.
    • Got info to share? Drop it here!
  • Reset button will not apply when user slides along the button when editing a wall
    • Fixed in v7.30.1
  • Temporary loss of ‘ADS’ functionality upon switching between weapons
    • Fixed in v7.40
  • Deleting then reinstalling the Fortnite app will reset the user’s HUD Layout
    • Fixed in v7.40
  • No spectator icon appears after killing a player on mobile.
    • Fixed in v7.40
  • Double tapping from a weapon to a consumable briefly fires the equipped weapon (visual bug)
    • Fixed in v7.40

*If we learn new information is discovered or a fix is now arriving in a later update the change will be reflected in the above list

We launched mobile controller support this past week in the v7.30 update and it has been awesome seeing all the folks sharing how they play, as well as feedback on the feel. You can expect additional controller feel improvements over the next few updates as we shift additional development efforts to tackling the key issues you’re experiencing.

Check back for updates on top bugs as we dig in or let us know what else you’d want included here or on Trello. Thank you for all of the feedback, discussion and support!
