There’s Fortnite audio issues with players reporting cutting out, lag, and just not working in general on Xbox. Here’s how to fix the volume not working issue.
Epic Games launched a new chapter and season of Fortnite, chapter 3 season 1, almost two weeks ago on Sunday. Unfortunately, there have been a number of issues that have plagued the game since then.
When the season launched, the servers were down for a couple of hours due to the sheer amount of players trying to log on at the same time. According to Epic, it was the largest season launch with a record number of players trying to log in.
After that issue was fixed, there were other server issues which resulted in Epic adding a queue system which had it’s own issues. The Queue counter would count down to zero but players were still unable to access the game.
That was then followed by players getting a blank white screen which was fixed an hour later. Now, players are reporting Fortnite audio issues on Xbox On December 15th, 2021 with some players claiming audio is not working or it is cutting out or has a lag.
