Fortnite patch 5.10 fixes ghost peeking exploit

The new Fortnite 5.10 patch has eliminated the problem of ghost peeking, Epic Games today detailed.

Epic’s Nick Donaldson explained the situation in a Reddit post.

“When crouching up-hill, you can sometimes fire over cover without actually being seen by your target,” Donaldson said, attaching the image (above) to help players really visualise what was happening.

“Unfortunately, in some cases this can sometimes lower the character mesh down far further than we intended,” Donaldson continued. “Oops!

“In 5.10, we’ve included a fix for this issue so that any time you can shoot someone, they will be able to see you, and shoot you.”

The fix makes it so that characters will be high enough to see other players and target them without somehow shooting through objects.

Donaldson summed it up pretty well: “If I can shoot you, you can head-shot me.”

The 5.10 patch also brings back Fornite‘s popular Playground practice mode.

Fortnite is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch and iOS devices.
