Fortnite is celebrating its first birthday with overly large ingame pie and additional challenges, but the jubilation has been tempered by the problem of ghost tracking, which was a bothersome exploit involving the loot-loving, trigger-happy player base. The people at Epic Games have been trying to fix it for months and have had mixed results.
Unaware of this, Ghost Peeking essentially lets players shoot cover without being seen and exposing themselves to the enemy. This is especially problematic in a game where you can always create your own cover. It comes into practice when a player crouches uphill. Because Fortnite's animation system makes adjustments to ensure that your character's feet are correctly positioned on slopes, it also alters its web ̵
Ghost peeking was a widespread problem; All you have to do is search for the term on YouTube to discover countless video tutorials that show players how to succeed. However, in the last v5.1 update, Epic claimed to have corrected it based on the current evidence that appears to be the case. Hooray! But do not be too excited: this solution comes with a caveat. Fixing spirit spies has a negative side effect that affects your ability to hit targets.
Reddit user Grass — Tastes_Bad first pointed out and showed how the premium skin of the Cuddle Team Leader covers half of the screen and your goals Reticle if you are positioned sideways on a ramp. The effect is not always as pronounced as with other skins (though hunting rifles are generally inferior when zoomed in the back of the head), but still blocks the entire left side of the screen, forcing you to solve these kinds of situations Unless you want your perspective to be severely hampered.
Peeking ghosts was a problem that needed to be resolved, but the current solution has raised a more serious problem. It's bad enough to be killed by the new, already annoying, but still powerful P90 Compact SMG, without even having to keep an eye on the enemy player.
Epic was quick in fixing any issues with Fortnite so far, and they are aware of that, so there is hope that this will be resolved soon. Whether this means that ghost peeking will return in any form remains to be seen, but we may not yet be out of control.
