Fortnite has a new '3D Headphones' option for improved spatialization of sound

Look out below!

Tired of not knowing if someone's above or below you based on sound? Fortnite now has a new option that should help make it lot easier to tell what's going on. Epic explains the update in the blurb below.

With the release of Chapter 2, we’re excited to share that we’ve added a setting to improve audio. Tested by members of the competitive community, by toggling on the “3D Headphones” mode in the Audio Options menu, the mode will improve spatialization of tactically-important sounds.

What does that mean? You’ll have a better sense of sounds above, below, and behind you! Please note: we recommend stereo headphones for this mode, and the mode will not work if you have the “Visualize Sound Effects” accessibility option enabled. Jump in and try it out!
