Fortnite Players Critique Chapter 5 Movement Mechanics as ‘Janky’


Fortnite’s latest season brings a variety of changes, including an overhaul of the movement mechanics. However, not everyone is on board with the changes.

The newest season of Fortnite has arrived, and alongside some server issues, it has introduced numerous modifications. Chapter 5, Season 1, also known as “Underground,” is one of the game’s most expansive seasons to date, featuring weapon modifications, new game modes, and a revamped Peter Griffin character.

In addition to the prominent alterations, a less-heralded update has been the new movement mechanics. Chapter 5 introduces wall climbing and brings back hurdling after it was removed in Chapter 4, Season 1.

Despite the appeal of these new movement mechanics, their implementation has not been well-received, with initial reactions less than favorable.

SypherPK shares initial thoughts on Fortnite Chapter 5

One of the highlights of Chapter 5 is the brand-new wall climbing and the return of hurdling. Many animations have also been revamped, giving Fortnite Chapter 5 a distinct feel.

Despite widespread server instability, well-known streamer and content creator SyhperPK has spent considerable time exploring the new season. Taking to Twitter/X, he shared his initial thoughts, expressing admiration for the cosmetics, the map, and the weapon mod system.

However, he also expressed dissatisfaction with the movement in Fortnite Chapter 5, citing it as “too slow/janky at times.”

Undoubtedly, Sypher’s view was shared by many. “Crazy that in an attempt to make movement smoother, they made it stiff as f*ck,” one player replied. Another expressed a more dire opinion: “They seriously need to change back to the old movement and the season is amazing. It’s nearly unplayable…”

Surprisingly, one player suggested that it might be a placebo effect. “The problem is the upper body doesn’t shake as much so it’s creating a placebo that you’re walking slow. But placebo or not, the movement doesn’t feel smooth.”

However, that opinion wasn’t widely shared, with many asserting that the movement is indeed slow, not just a trick of the eyes.

It’ll be interesting to see how Epic addresses these claims, as the new movement was an intended change for Chapter 5. Read more
