Fortnite first-person mode updated

One of the most highly anticipated features in Fortnite has to be the first-person mode. There have been drips of information regarding the feature lately, but not much concrete progress. Still, some progress is being made, though there doesn’t seem to be an end date in sight. Some good news has come out that is sure to encourage all of the Fortnite first-person aficionados in the community. Let’s see what’s going on behind the scenes.

New Updates to Fortnite First-Person Mode

This latest round of news comes from the reliable Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey on Twitter. In the first-person roundup, he explains what the devs have been doing on the alternative mode’s front. 

Citing that the update is nothing major, the developers have still made strides in bringing the mode to life. In the latest update, allegedly, there have been several improvements to weapon sounds in the first-person mode. Some of the sound files that have been updated include weapons and items like:

  • Raygun
  • Cloak Gauntlets
  • Explosive Repeater
  • Mammoth Pistol
  • Heavy Sniper
  • Ex-Caliber Rifle
  • Kinetic Boomerang
  • DMR
  • Makeshift Revolver
  • Bandages
  • Eating Fish
  • Grappler
  • Medkits
  • Shadow Tracker
  • Crossbow
  • Suppressed Sniper
  • Standard Sniper
  • Pistol
  • Pickaxes
  • Infantry Rifle
  • Combat Pistol
  • Makeshift Pump
  • Dragons Breath Sniper
  • Primal Pistol

This list is not exhaustive, and there are even more sound effects being worked on. However, what this means is that the distinct sounds will work differently compared to the usual third-person view. 

Continuing the update, iFireMonkey adds: “Also as First Person mode has continued to be updated there have been some bugs with the already existing First Person mode in STW such as being able to emote and then see your pickaxes ever so slightly in the camera view. They’ve also been updating how the Camera works when doing stuff such as using weapons, sprays, etc.”

This part is very interesting because it highlights that the scope of updates is not limited to sound design. It’s encouraging that they’re exploring the mode from other directions and addressing issues that have been previously encountered.

With that said, it’s clear that the players will have to remain patient before they can get a chance to play in first-person mode. The other option is to be creative like some players who discovered alternative ways to play it.
