New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on April 22, 2022) follows:

Fortnite is the most popular battle-royale game today. Epic Games usually send constant updates with new content, balance adjustments and bug fixes.

A few days ago, Fortnite received the v20.20 update with some changes. However, it seems that the update also brought visual issues that affect the physics of the game.

According to multiple reports, Fortnite physics are not working properly when using certain skins after the most recent v20.20 update (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10).

Fortnite v20.20 update ‘broke’ some skin physics

Fortnite physics are not working properly when using certain skins after the most recent update (1, 2, 3, 4). The issue in question reportedly affects the clothes and hair movement.

This update ruined Tsuki 2.0 and the foundation physics

Before Tsuki’s hair used to flow around naturally, now its stiff like its a part of her body, it used to look wonderful while shes sprinting now it looks terrible. same with foundation’s cape.

Why do they keep breaking skins? Can we just have the skins at the same quality we got them? You’d think with all the stiffness they keep adding to the skins they’d fix the horrible cape physics for Dr.Doom and Thor but they don’t.

Anyone else notice how the skin physics are all wrong after the recent update?

What happens is whenever I load into Fortnite everything looks fine but right after I load into a match the physics on my skin are all wrong. Take Tsuki 2.0 for example everything looks fine on her when you first load up the game but after loading into a match her pigtails are stuck to her arms and don’t even move like at all.
