Last Thursday, Fortnite Season 2, Chapter 2, was released. With the v12.00 update, a glitch caught the attention of many players. Players were able to put their game in a stretched resolution by performing some simple steps.
Many players were switching to the stretch resolution to enjoy the Fortnite game.
Earlier, the stretched resolution was legal, and it was something that many of the streamers and pros were taking advantage of.
Gamers say that this setting improves the field of view (FOV) and further makes the shots easy to hit and leads to an overall smoother experience.
Furthermore, many players reported that apart from FOV, the stretch has made the game performance much smoother, and they have also noticed a significant improvement in their FPS in-game.
Back in April 2019, Epic Games, however, announced that they would ban the stretched res in both tournaments and Arena mode.
While many players complained that stretch might be unfair for the game, a large number of players were inclined towards this idea.
With the update made in the last week, things have changed, and some people have got their hopes up that they might get to use their beloved stretched resolution once again. But after knowing that this was nothing more than a glitch, they should perhaps have been less optimistic.
In a small patch released on Tuesday, the developers have fixed the bug, and it is no longer possible to use stretched resolution. As of yet, Epic Games has not commented, but it is not something that they want in Fortnite.
