The time I’m writing this, AvengersXFortnite LTM is still going on with the Star-Lord outfit being featured in the Shop.
If you’re buying one, make sure to use the code ipriyam on the Item Shop to support me.
Anyways, we all know that Fortnite is filled with Bugs and Glitches these Days.
Just Visual Bugs are fine and bearable but once it gets to interfere with the Mechanics inside the Game, it gets more annoying.
Like right now, we have a new Bug in the Game which causes Item Pickup Delay even when the Ping is fine.
A lot of people on Reddit have been reporting this Problem.
Item Pickup Delay in Fortnite?
This actually is not a Bug, it is just a new update by Epic Games to do Game that needs a option to disable this new Feature.
Because of this you might:
- Pick up the Items after 0.5 seconds of pressing the use button.
- Can sometimes replace the Existing Item with the picked up one even though there is a space in your Inventory.
- Unresponsive item switching even with Good Ping.
This can be really Frustrating specially when you’re in a hurry and need to pick up something.
How to Fix this?
Well, it is simple.
Even though there is a way to fix this Problem, you still will have to wait for Epic Games to Officially Fix it.
Also, make sure to enable Tap to Search/Interact.
For Now, You can just assign the scroll wheel (both up and down) as the “Use” (interact) button.
That way, you can pick up anything as fast as Possible by just scrolling the Mouse-wheel.
The only downside is that it’s not a Good Option if you switch Weapons with the Scroll Wheel itself.
