Ninja Experiences Major Fortnite Bug. Gets Angry at Epic Games

Fortnite Battle Royale is one of the most updated games on the planet right now. Of course, there are pros and cons to all these updates. The pros are that the game is updated every week. We can see a balance update at the very least or a change to some particular point. Epic Games likes to keep a hands-on approach. However, when we take a look at the other side, Fortnite is suffering from these changes. The latest affected element is hit registration, and Ninja is not happy about it.

What is Hit registration?

In short, hit registration or hitreg more commonly known is the act of a bullet, a knife or any object registering the damage into the server. However, it doesn’t always go as planned. Every multiplayer player has experience this problem at one point in time. Remember when you shot someone but the damage didn’t register? That means the hitreg isn’t registering your shots. Therefore players hate this so much since it is one of the worst things that can happen during gameplay.

Popular streamer Ninja had this problem when he was playing with TimTheTatman today. But Fortnite is well known for fixing these problems seasons ago. However, with Season 8 it made a comeback. Let us watch Ninja’s video.

As you can see the shot is right on the target from close proximity, therefore, it should be a one-shot kill. However, the shots do not register. Let us take a closer look at it. We can see that Nina, after playing thousands of hours, knows it should be a one-shot kill.

Ninja Slows Down Reply to See Fortnite Bug

As soon as Ninja experienced the Fortnite bug, he asked his chat to “clip it“. When a Twitch viewer “clips” a moment in a stream, they can go back 1 minute and select the time slot for which the desired recording can take place. Ninja wanted to see a reply of that moment, which one viewer was nice enough to clip it for Ninja. Here’s Ninja reviewing that moment in slow-motion.

The bigger problem in all of this is the fact that the Fortnite World Cup Qualifying phase is being played right now. Players do know that one shot like that can make the difference in qualifying for the finals. Also, it can make a difference in winning and losing. Epic Games need to solve this Fortnite bug before the finals at least.
