So Console Fortnite Is BROKEN Again… (Fortnite PS4 + Xbox – New Update)

Hey what is going on guys, in this video today
we’re gonna be going over Fortnite update 11.50 but not really the update itself, moreso
about the wide array of negative effects the update has had on the game so far especially
for console players. So update 11.50 was actually pretty hyped
up for 2 main reasons. First off it was always planned to be the
last update of chapter 2 season 1, and historically the final updates in a season have frequently
been pretty game changing. But the even bigger aspect of this update
that people were excited about and maybe a bit nervous for was the implementation of
the new chaos physics engine into the game. When we got the announcement that it was going
to be added in this update, a lot of people started speculating about the impact it would
have on the game. Some people started posting videos showing
how it worked in other games with like these crazy building collapse animations, there
was speculation that it was going to totally change how box fighting worked, you had some
optimists hoping it would improve the general smoothness of the game, the hype was pretty
crazy to say the least. However, when it was finally implemented into
the game it changed…pretty much nothing. You probably wouldn’t even notice any difference
at all unless you looked super hard. However, after the update was released players
started experiencing a bunch of different problems in Fortnite. And many people believe the new engine is
the most likely root cause that’s leading to most of these problems. So without further ado, let’s get into whats
going wrong since the release of the update. Alright so probably the biggest issue that
a lot of players have been experiencing since 11.50 was released are increases to things
like ping, input delay, and packet loss as well as a decrease to FPS. It’s funny because on the day the update was
released I immediately went to twitter to read the patch notes. And what I saw when I started scrolling down
my timeline was “Why is my ping randomly so high right now” “Is anybody else getting way
lower FPS than normal” “Why am I getting 40% packet loss in creative”, so I was like “welp
that’s definitely not a good sign.” Now I wanna make it clear that connection
issues like the ones I just mentioned randomly occurring after an update isn’t totally unheard
of. It seems like maybe once every 2-3 months,
a new update that gets released will for some unknown reason cause FPS/connection issues
for a chunk of players. But usually the amount of players effected
is relatively small, and they typically all have the same issue whether that be high ping,
low FPS, whatever. But after update 11.50 it not only seems like
a lot more people than normal are impacted by this, but also it seems like everyone is
being affected in a different way. I gave you a preview of that by mentioning
some of the random tweets I saw, but let me actually read off two or three of the numerous
popular reddit posts that discuss some of the various issues people are having. Here’s one titled “Since this last update
this game feels absolutely terrible.” “Idk what they did man if it’s the chaos engine
or whatever but my ping in creative and in game has skyrocketed so bad to the point that
I can’t double edit like I used to. I am getting mad frame drops and bad input
delay. This game feels the worst it’s ever felt before.” Here’s another post titled “console is so
bad ever since 11.50” and it says “For Any other Console Players is this affecting you
too? I’m getting Stutters Every second, Random
1000 ping spikes, when you play creative sensitivity feels hellah fast and everything u do is delayed
by a second, and the friends list is bugged it’s so hard to invite ppl for zonewars”
And here’s a different post with a similar title that says “Ever since the new update
my packet loss has been significantly higher,,, and my fps being already capped at 60 as I
am playing on an Xbox is now sitting at around 30 during box fights or if there’s numerous
enemies around me. Creative mode is the worst, I can’t even
practice my builds or aim if there’s too many targets, dummy’s or whatever else in
one area. To cap it all off, the macro and micro stutters
are beyond belief. I just don’t understand why epic won’t
do anything to help all the players complaining about this.” And in response to this thread, another user
pointed out that the act of phasing is something that directly leads to some of these major
stutters. He even attached a short little clip showcasing
that which I’ll show you guys right now. So these even though these issues do seem
to be a bigger deal on console, pc players are also being impacted as well, and it isn’t
one specific issue such as everybody has the same ping as before but now they have lower
FPS or vice versa. And what makes this really bad is that usually
what happens when Fortnite sees a lot of people having certain issues with a new update, is
that within about 24-48 hours they’ll release another much smaller update that fixes it. Everybody will download that, the problems
will go away, and just like that every thing will be back to normal. However at the time I’m making this video
it’s been about 6 full days since the release of 11.50, and we still haven’t heard a peep,
we don’t know if Fortnite is even aware of these issues, we don’t know if/when they plan
to fix them, heck we don’t know if they even know HOW to fix them. So even though I’m sure they eventually will,
since Fortnite stated that update 11.50 is going to be the last update of this season,
it may take until the 20th for that fix to actually be added into the game. So just be aware because I’ve gotten so many
questions about this, if your ping has been higher, or FPS has been lower, or you’re getting
more packet loss, or you feel like there’s more input delay, there’s a very good chance
it isn’t a problem with your internet or console, it’s a server issue that you can’t really
do anything about. And leave me a comment right now if you’ve
been dealing with any of these connection-based issues because I wanna see how common it really
is. So even though those various connection issues
were probably the most important negative side effect of 11.50 there are other a few
other things as well. The first is something that is absolutely
driving a lot of people crazy and for good reason. Not exactly sure what would cause this but
for some reason the double damage blue circle that pops up while farming materials randomly
stops working fairly frequently. Basically what will happen is the first time
you hit the circle it’ll give you the normal double damage and double materials, but then
it won’t move and when you continue to hit it it stops working. This is mainly a console issue based on what
I’ve been seeing but it apparently also is effecting a smaller amount of PC players. Luckily unlike the FPS/ping issues, Epic has
actually directly acknowledged this farming problem. On their trello board which is where they
announce which bugs and glitches they’re aware of and trying to fix they have a post titled
“Weak Point hits not always registering”, and they claim that it will be fixed in the
quote unquote “next update release.” But like I mentioned earlier, there’s at least
a decent chance that isn’t until the beginning of chapter 2 season 2. Another mainly console-only issue that players
have been dealing with involves the auto run feature, and just sprinting in general. I’ve seen some people say that autosprint
stops working for them after like 5 seconds no matter what, I’ve seen other people say
normally sprinting only works if they hold their analog stick at a specific angle, it
kinda seems like a disaster. So if you’re someone that’s been experiencing
sprint issues recently, don’t automatically assume it’s a problem with your controller
because I know that’s what people are going to do, there’s a good chance it’s a result
of the update. There have also been various issues regarding
boats since 11.50. Not only do they feel a little bit more clunky
now for whatever reason but players have been experiencing a variety of different glitches
when using boats that are kinda pretty funny. I’ll just show you guys 2 quick clips of what
I mean by that. So even though that was funny to watch, it’s
definitely not something that you would want to happen to you in any kind of an actual
game. So, I hope you guys enjoy this video and if
you watched the entire thing be sure to let me know with a comment down in the comment
section below. Have you experienced any of the issues that
we talked about in this video and if so which ones? Be sure to leave a like, leave a comment,

  • TTV BryGuy_

    First can I get pinned for the first time lol

  • dopihead

    I don't think you realize how many times I rebooted my router thinking my internet was the problem… Damn it Epic!

  • rdaug27

    Hit marker/farming glitch makes this unplayable for console especially when going against PC players that do not have this glitch.

  • Lifealertyt

    Ya no wonder I have been screaming my lungs off when I kept going up to 1k ping

  • Barge Man

    Everyone needs to stand up for console, all my console mates and I are hardly playing the game now as it feels like 20 FPS and ping boosts are constant as well as smaller bugs that seems like only console are getting and it’s frustrating and lazy of epic, to pc players u could disagree, but I’d rather push the new season by a month as long as they fix the disgrace of a problem on console…we need to step up against epic cus they hide in their shells for a whole season and only brought launch pads and think they done a good job🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

  • Yasha Q-Q

    I have all everything is screw

  • Farid jamal

    yo check this kid out @

  • Dawg Father

    The game feels bad right now! Don't know if it's the fps or ping that's the problem, but linear felt smooth and fast, now feels slow and glitchy! I've even played around with sens and nothing feels good! Been losing alot of flick shots in build fights…..seems other players are 1ms faster now?! This suxs

  • Mylifetogive

    Weak spots when farming aren’t working either. I could hit a walls fifteen times with no weak spot recognition

  • Chief Xesty

    I’m on ps4 and my crit hits don’t work for farming or taking walls, I’ve got I think around 10 crit hits since then. And stuttering is so bad, like that little clip, it happens to me everytime I edit a stair.

  • Rip kobe

    Lol my pump is garbage idk if they added a delay but I cannot shoot my gun

  • FrenzyRB

    Honestly I think Epic should allow console players to change their video settings. Console has it set to atleast high or epic by default and you can't do anything about it. Maybe giving console settings like pc will help stay at 60fps or probably run more than 60.

  • taha nmili

    I hate epic games f…k them

  • guitarguy4ever28

    Fortnite officially sucks. I can't hear anyone walking or running up on me or even breaking/shooting my walls. They just appear behind me or in my box.


    please check out our awesome fortnte clan!

  • Delly 4Prez

    Post update has been so damn frustrating
    – weak points not registering…
    – my deadzones randomly changed on my account and I can’t change them back…
    – minor/major hitching mid-game…

    How have they not fixed this crap already? Such simple aspects that are so important to the overall gaming experience. Prioritize PS4!!!! There is a tournament in literally 3 days!!!


    Let's gooooooooooooooooooooooo I was the 1k like

  • Mesby

  • AsaadAlghamdi

    in addition to all the glitches mentioned in the video, the hold to swap sitting is also glitched on console , i dont know how to explain it but its really bad

  • Gabe Carter

    Pings been 120 since the update it's garbage

  • James Pearson

  • Santiago Osorio

  • SONI

  • VanG StYLeZ

    On console too well for me, my farm hits bullseye is hella laggy. Barely works.

  • ddg darkacres

    My cousin has the double damage problem so I will tell her thanks gronky!

  • D-Faultszn

    I really thought it was my internet and just upgraded internet and am spending 50 more per month. I’m going back to my old internet.

  • Anthony playz

    Anyone gonna talk about hitting a circle on a tree and doing 50

  • oFlakeys

    Am I a good console player? Just wondering 🤔

  • Twinzz04

    We have the same exact problems on pc. High ping with packet loss and fps drops.

  • Invinsuhble

    why is no one talking about this, they need to fix the bug where your shotgun shoots while editing, resulting in your shotgun not shooting at all when the edit is confirmed.

  • Juan Tagle

    I knew my interner was not that much trash

  • Curtis Bennett

    Gronky!!! Finally I thought I was just going crazy with the farming circles problem!! Honestly thought i was going crazy noone else said theyve had anything like it. So is this gonna be fixed before the tournament this weekend? I doubt it right, so cant wait to be at a HUGE disadvantage when im trying to break into a roof for a chest off spawn, or trying to take someone's wall. Cheers Epic, nothing like fair play Esports 😀 -__-

  • Hoji

    Knew i wasnt tripping

  • Manuel Berndt

    Got the circle Problem too and every second/third full Match a massive package loss (20%) . Great Job on this Video Like Always 💯 Thanks for that 🙏

  • xboxer gunner, brylee

    I cant play at all. Fortnite severs has been very bad and my normal ping is 200. My blue circle doesn't work at all and it works 3% of the time. I really hope Fortnite will get this fixed so i can play again

  • Peridot

    Great video & all but 2:27 Jesus Christ LAZA

  • CrownLovell

    I play on pc and I normally i get 40 to 45 ping and now its 60 to 70 ping and some spikes above 100ping no fps change though

  • Harrison Luck

    I can’t hit crit points

  • OG_Voids Yt

    my pings been 90 over i usual run 30 through 60

  • ShieldzY FN

    They need to increase the console frame rate cap give both Xbox n ps4 the option to turn shadows on and of and fix their servers this would reduce input delay n is only fair as how is it that iPad’s can have 120fps yet they say a console couldn’t handle that frame rate why don’t they just give us graphic options like pc players have and iPad/iPhone players have consoles have had it hard since the start of fortnite.

  • Ph4nt0m Realxy

    i don't know if i am the only one but i am trying to update the game on ps4 and it doesn't work. it says data is corrupted. pls help 🙁

  • Ousmane Kaba

    My ping has been high at 400ping for 4 hours even after restarting the game and my whole console!😤

  • karlplayz games

  • Ryze.Voke

    I’m console, played for about 3 hours, didn’t have a FPS issue other than the new creative map

  • Bubba


  • Preston Williams

    Epic is just slowly vaulting console even that’s the majority of their player base🤦🏾‍♂️

  • ilmyus ll

    Console feels unplayable sometimes

  • Not MoDz

    I literally get 30 fps and 40-70 ping on creative and 60-80 ping on pubs

  • IQ - 10LS - Stephen Lewis SS (2682)

    For some reason, the circle for farming just doesn't register for me and I've gotten so many ping spikes. I had averaged 30 ping or 25 ping before the update. Now I average 40-50 ping now and it's truly annoying

  • Aimbot Boomer

    tired of dying to those damn console plebs abusing aim assist anyway

  • Cokezy YT

    I literally broke my router trying to fix this

  • Bippity Boppity

    I don’t think this is actually the Chaos Engine they are talking about. Sure, they implemented it but it isn’t in full effect yet. That will come on the 20th

  • Kawbu

    Input delay btw

  • xd CrazedManiac47

    Yay I'm so happy I can't play right now. My mom decided to take my PS4 out of my room because my little brother didn't clean HIS OWN ROOM. But my room is always clean so she decided to take mine. I'm having such a great day

  • Sean Ronan

    Fortnite has been getting less fun everday,i just stopped playing

  • Travis Bond

    I just love how Everytime I try to build it trys to edit when I don't want to!!! I tried to make y edit and switch binds but then I made L trigger toggle pickaxe and it was a FN mess. Then I switched that to left dpad and lost my marker button and switch material!! I'm getting super FN pissed at this game!!!? It could all be so lovely but nope. FN game makes me want to jump in front of a bus!

  • AlwaysFair

    I keep getting hit by traps when I run to the other side of the wall and think I wont get hit but end up getting hit wonder is this to do with the update, maybe bad timing, also starting to glitch where I'd end up jumping off a floor piece and then end up back on the floor, this only happened once (PC, 165fps)

  • Big- Q


  • cameron brown

    That is so true I got on today and it was way to laggy I’m a competitive Fortnite player at least I try and I couldn’t play at all

  • Kenny

  • David Schwartz

  • Haris Butt

  • Edmund Twum

  • Caleb Creech

    Ive been having quite a few of these and i can say console fortnite is horrible atm

  • svrxzy

    so is it my internet or my game

  • ACTruitt

    ping is higher and I can't see my FPS display anymore


    This is to true

  • Screenager 90.

    My current issues on PS4 since the update;

    – Farming bug
    – LAG
    – FPS drops
    – Ping bouncing around more erratically
    – Input delay
    – Stutters
    – LaunchPad bug/swaps to trap/says you have a trap when you dont
    – Fazing glitch/stutters
    – Rendering issues off spawn

    And for all that is holy…


    *Insert Rage*

  • Nicholas Singh

    I play on PC using a controller (Xbox one). My ping is usually around 100 but since the update, I've been experiencing ping as high as 210 – basically unplayable. I haven't experienced any fps problems (or at least, i haven't noticed any).

  • Jonny Neaves

    Everything you talked about i experience the most common one for me is that my fps drops rapifly

  • EsR Ariaks

    it's very nice to play in creative on 25fps! I don't understand why they don't take away shadows and grass

  • Zexidy

    Intro song?

  • '-

    I have a bug you didn't mention. Sometimes when I am building I glitch out and can't walk or jump anymore. I am like hoovering over the builds and have no clue how this can happen but it's pretty annoying.

  • Jacob Hamilton

    It's so stupid that the update didn't change anything.

  • James Witt

    The harvesting glitch is the most annoying thing I've felt with recently

  • Arges Salmi

    this right before the celebration cup. amd i cant even farm mats anymore lol.

  • iameverywhere25

    pc players rise up

  • Sir Tweeted

    You are the one of the only youtubers that highlights the issues console has thank you

  • DanyFN

    I remember in season X i had less than 10 Ping in endgames since Chapter 2 im always above 20

  • Big- Q

    @gronKy it sucks cuz I love fortnite and this game is dying. The problem that gets me mad is that with the current state of the game, fortnite has not made any changes to the game and oviously everyone is gettin bored cuz its the same but if its the same, atleast make sure u have no glitches or bugs. Its so dumb. I grind so hard on console for epic to not give any fucks.

  • TokyoRD

    Fr Fortnite gotta fix it before the celebration cup, or else our chances of winning will be low

  • TWT DiceYT

    Same bro the farming circle I hit it works the. It won’t work ima quit actually

  • Smokey Wilyumz

    I know it sucks but epic is never going to make the game fair for console unless the loyal community stops playing. They don’t even care that we can’t farm with weak spots, aside from that it makes it harder to box fight with hard mats. I’m done being bait for pc players

  • caxx

    My console buggin

  • Ouuzie FN

    can console just get 140 fps now😫

  • Derrick Rhodes

    ive literally experienced every single thing you mentioned in the vid #60fpsgang #imtiredofthegame

  • STARSHIP' Shel

    Fortnite has hit it's ceiling. Will it smash through?

  • John L

    I only get one critical hit that’s it. Xbox guy. It’s been fucking terrible since the update. Noticed the streamers are fine though.

  • lolfunny

    You guys have to relax it's like that for us too pc players but I barely play but I've played and it's so bad
