Reports of FPS issues on PC:

We’re investigating reports of FPS issues on PC following the Chapter 2 release.

UPDATE:
We appreciate the videos you sent us showing the FPS issues you’ve been seeing on PC. With v11.01, we’ve made good progress addressing your concerns, as we’ve improved the impact that rapidly turning the camera has on performance. Please note that this improvement will feel slightly more noticeable on higher-end PCs than on lower-end ones.

We are still working to address your concerns, and we’ll keep you updated with our progress.

BUG FIXES

Thank you for providing feedback on the AFK / leeching system since it’s release in v11.00. 

Homebase released a hotfix last week to tone down the restriction of the system and Commanders are reporting improvements across the board. We’re taking the feedback further in the v11.10 update by removing the leeching system from private matches and friend matches. 

Additionally, we’re taking another look at spawn points for SSDs as we’ve noticed the feedback regarding cross spawns at Ramp West and Beach North in Twine Peaks. We’re working to correct this in the v11.10 update. 

Also of note, based on Fortnite dataminer FireMonkey, an XP buff is part of this patch too!

Given how Epic has changed how it handles patches, expect future patch notes posts to be structured this way moving forward. If you notice something not included here, let us know in the comments.
