Epic revealed some changes to how editing works in build mode for Fortnite, and they were set to be implemented in Version 7.20. Unfortunately this update caused an issue, and now Epic has pushed the changes back to their next update. Get the full details below.
In the v7.20 Patch Notes we had a line that read:
Editing a structure will now begin without waiting for a response from the server. This should cut down on ghost shots before editing and make it a smoother experience.
Confirming the edit will still require sending data to the server and be impacted by high ping or poor server performance.
Unfortunately, due to an issue that was preventing players from being able to shoot after jumping from the Battle Bus, we've had to revert that improved functionality. For the time being, editing will now react the same way it did prior to v7.20.
Fear not! All improvements listed above will be re-added to Patch v7.30.
