Fortnite: how to see steps
Fortnite is a position-dependent game. Knowing where enemies are and grasping the heights in front of them is paramount, especially in the game’s Zero Build mode, where cover and elevation are greatly reduced. Also vital for Fortnite is solid, as finding elusive chests hidden deep in labyrinthine structures or finding where enemy players are hiding can be the keys to a successful game.
However, whether due to hearing issues or simply to reduce noise, not all gamers can play with sound. Fortunately, Fortnite has an incredibly useful feature that allows players to view sound effects in relation to their character, giving them that much-needed edge when looting and shooting in Fortnite‘s Chapter 3 Season 3. This guide will show players how to enable this feature, so they can embark on a silent Victory Royale.
To turn on visualized sound, start the game and sit in the lobby. From here, ppress the pause button – “☰” on PlayStation and Xbox, and “Escape” on PC by default. Then navigate to settings tab, indicated by the cog, and click on it.
Now use arrow keys on PC or bumpers on console to move to “audio», marked with the speaker icon.
In this menu, players can adjust the individual sound settings of their game; after setting them to their liking, scroll down to “Sound» and activate the section «View sound effects» and click on «Apply” to save the change.
Players will know the setting has been enabled when they load into Fortnitethe pre-game island of, as they should see icons abound; if the setting is not enabled, they can revisit the in-game sound menu and enable it from there.
Enabling this feature will turn off 3D audio, which means that the headphones will not be able to distinguish the direction of footsteps with stereo sound.
Still, the benefits of visualized sound arguably outweigh this method of noise tracking, as the on-screen effects make it much easier to see the direction of chests and footsteps. In fact, many of the most popular Fortnite streamers, such as Ninja, use this setting to track enemy movement.
For players new to this setting, footsteps, gliders, and player-driven vehicles (and animals starting in Chapter 3 Season 3) are rendered in white, with small icons in the middle distinguishing the sound. Additionally, explosions and gunshots are orange in color, while chests have a golden glow.
Fortnite is currently available for Android, Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
