A Fortnite bug causes a massive FPS drop whenever a player starts building an in-game structure. Luckily, this critical glitch has been addressed by Epic Games via a hotfix. The games studio released the announcement on its official Fortnite Twitter page.
“We have released a hotfix to resolve FPS drops when entering building mode. Players will not be required to update, you will pick it up next time you return to the lobby,” said Epic Games on the official Fortnite Twitter page.
The annoying, critical bug went live with the Fortnite 7.20 update, the latest installment in Fortnite. Many gamers complained about a massive FPS drop each time they were entering the building mode.
“When I have my pickaxe or a weapon out, I do not have any FPS drop, but as soon as I pull out the blueprint it becomes rather low, and when I start building it becomes unplayable,” one of the gamers complained about the bug, on the official Epic Games forum.
