A new bug with Fortnite’s X-4 Stormwing Plane has been discovered which causes the plane to significantly under perform for console players.

Tests show that the X-4 Stormwing Plane’s integrated turret is significantly more accurate when firing on PC when compared to its console counterpart.

It’s not yet known what causes this issue and how it can be remedied. Tests prove that it is not tied to frame rate, as one can assume based on past bugs.

PSA: The Plane machine gun is SIGNIFICANTLY more accurate on PC than it is on console. This has been like this for weeks now. from r/FortniteCompetitive

The above video first shows an X-4 Stormwing firing at a 3×3 build on PC, the line of fire is very accurate to where the reticle is located.

When the test is repeated on console however, you can see that the plane struggles to remain on target, despite the similar reticle movement.

Players claim that this has been a problem for multiple weeks. Some claim that Epic Games may have forgot to adjust the plane’s bloom on PC as they did for console when the X-4 Stormwing received significant nerfs a few patches ago.

What are your thoughts on this bug? Have you personally been impacted? Do you feel it may be blown out of proportion?

Epic Games has yet to respond to this bug or provide an update to fix it. Stay tuned to FortniteINTEL.com / @FortniteINTEL for further updates.
