Fortnite v3.5.1 Update Fixes Numerous Bugs

Time for another Fortnite bug-squash!

Epic Games applied some quick fixes to its latest content patch for Fortnite Battle Royale and Fortnite Save the World. Such is the way of game development: Bugs follow big game updates in the same manner wolves trail roving packs of wild cattle.

The patch for Fortnite, v3.5.1, mostly cleans up some bugs. A new feature's been added, though: The "Building Edit" key can now be bound to any hotkey besides "G." Epic outlined the complete contents of the update in the Battle Royale subreddit. Here's what's changed:

GENERAL

  • ‘Building Edit’ hotkey can be bound to keys other than ‘G’.

BATTLE ROYALE

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where players could fire weapons before the equip animation had finished if they were sprinting.
  • Fixed several client crashes that were related to the new Replay System.
  • Fixed an issue that broke player’s walking / sprinting animations if they were firing a Guided Missile while walking/sprinting.
Hopefully there aren't any bugs on the Battle Bus. I've heard stories about roaches in coaches.

Fortnite's v3.5 update added a lot of new content to the game, including a handy-dandy Replay camera that lets you save and re-watch your matches from multiple camera angles. It also improved performance for the console versions of the game (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) and added faster load times.

With all the new stuff Epic keeps adding to its mega-hit battle royale game, staying alive can be tough. We're on your side, though.
