Why can’t I hear footsteps in Fortnite?
Sometimes Fortnite updates can have a negative impact on the game, despite the many fixes and improvements that come bundled inside. Even with all of the testing that a large developer like Epic Games will carry out internally, the actual public launch can result in some unpredictable effects. With the latest Fortnite patch, players are finding that they can no longer hear footsteps.

The official @FortniteStatus Twitter account tweeted that the team is “investigating reports of missing footstep audio on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.” This account will provide an update once it has more information.
