On April 7th, Competitive Fortnite’s Reddit group decided to make an offer that could help Epic Games deal with streaming snipers. The essence of the proposal is as follows:
When the user turns on the streamer mode, not only his nickname changes, but also the game skin. That is, if you activated the streamer mode and run on the map in the Horn skin, then the enemies see you in a completely different skin. This will complicate the process of finding a player on the server, thereby making life easier for popular streamers.
A representative of Epic Games immediately responded to this note and said that a similar function is already being prepared, but will not get into the game with patch 8.30.
Therefore, we may well expect a new feature in the near future. Alas, no details were given and we can’t say whether the final version will be available only to streamers or if anyone can activate this function. Streamsnipping at the moment is really a serious problem because it significantly changes the usual format of streams for hunting.
