Dev Tracker

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We threw it on our Trello board so you can follow the progress on it HERE.

To change a non elemental roll on a weapon it costs 1000 perk up, alerts only offer 36 in 70 missions.. wtf. If we do the maths just based on the alerts, 1000 divided by 36 = 28 rounded up. I also did a lvl 64 cat 2 where the RE-PERK was one of the main rewards and only got 31 out of a lvl 5 chest, an even lower amount than from the alert. Assuming you only play defense missions, you can also get an extra 25 from killing a chrome husk, if we consider this in the calculation, 25+36 = 66. 1000 divided by 66 = 15.. So on average assuming you only do defense missions, it'll still take you 15 missions to reroll one perk, on one weapon. Am i missing something here? why are these rewards so terrible?

Please keep in mind that the system is still newly released. We'll continue to monitor the feedback around the perk materials and make adjustments as needed. Keep playing / testing!

Lol there may be no "scripted responses" but somebody is your boss and somebody gave you guidelines of what's ok to say, and whats not. The last event did give a choice for a specific hero, it also actually gave the heros in the lamas, not just guns.which seems to be a common issue with this event. (I know its not over yet blah blah blah) doesn't change the reality of what everyone talking about it is expirencing.

Rerolls were and are a highly requested feature, but being able to actually play the game the way it was designed and intended to be played, is a much larger request. Sort this sub by new, count how many posts are about afk and leeching. And then tell me re rolls are more requested. They arent. Far as i can tell yall are prioritizing rerolls cause there is monitary gain in it for you. Unlike an actual functioning reporting feature. This is literally the only game ive ever played online, that has no repercussions for people doing everything they can against the tos. I've heard from you "the banning feature works" yet the only people I've known to get banned were people who hacked the game and posted videos and a guy who named his stormsheild something explicit.

I absolutely love this game, I've dumped more time and money into this than any other game ive played. But these stupid ass "we here you" comments and "were working on it" is damn near patronizing, because yall keep saying it yet absolutely nothing comes of it. The day i can report someone and know something will come lf it will be the day i apologize to you for being a pain in the ass. Until then your the public face for a company that wants little more than money.

I'm going to have to disagree with a lot of the points you are making here. We've run several test on opening llamas since this event has gone live based on the feedback of what feels like lower drop rates. We compared the drops from the last event to this event and the outcomes are within a very small percent of each other. There have been no changes to drop rates for heroes / weapons. Again, when the quest line continues.. players will have the option to choose that specific reward they are chasing... we just aren't on that quest line yet.


Re-rolls have been the most requested feature since Fortnite launched and we are finally able to bring this system into the game and there is no incentive to prioritize re-rolls over anything else. We feel like it's time to add it and we've spent a lot of time getting the system right. AFK / Player reporting is something that is actively being worked on as we speak. Different features require different amounts of development time and we aren't going to rush a feature into the game before it's ready.

. . . . . i wonder do yall ever put the script down. Also where's the perk re rolls. . . .

There are definitely no "scripted" responses when you see comments from us on reddit. The last event gave a decision for a hero / weapon very early on in the quest line and players were able to select exactly what they wanted. It is definitely harder to get that specific hero or weapon at this time because the quest line hasn't given you those choices / ticket reward quest yet.


We've spent more dev time on re-rolls since this was highly requested (and we need to get it right) which resulted in a slightly larger gap in between quest lines. There are also no different weights in this event than the last event in terms of llamas rewards.


Also, please read this post as it explains the why the "we're working on it response" isn't cutting it anymore... which is the exact state that we're in with the AFK / Player reporting feature. We've addressed this several times already.

I really feel like trello for STW isnt used as much as it should be. Seems to only be the issues that get enough traction that end up on it instead of the major issues in their entirety. At least compared to BR with tons of minor issues added.

The amount of bugs on the board tend to flip flop between which side has more. When the board was first created the STW bugs were way higher than they are now as they were the most player impacting (they've since been fixed). We definitely need to vet the reported issues by actually testing if they are actually verified as a bug before adding them.

Essentially, the bugs that go on this board are the top / more egregious bugs. I do believe we can use this for more an "issues" board rather than just bugs as Player Reporting should definitely have a spot.

Please help me bring this to Epic's notice. This issue has been raised before by a few people, but never got enough traction for Epic to notice it. Certain alert rewards are bugged and are never delivered to the player.

PS: One of these missions is up live RIGHT NOW. It is the PL 52 Canny Valley Repair the Shelter with the "Epic Hero" reward, you can try it if you want to confirm yourself. Please read the post before doing so. This mission expires in 1 hour from this post, I hope someone can get footage of this bug. (The mission has now expired)

EDIT: Also in Plankerton apparently, there was a mission today that was supposed to give a "Rare Hero".

The missions in context

There are few alert missions that claim to, but do not give the following rewards:

1.Epic Hero (not a specific hero name, just an "Epic Hero" reward)

2.Lead survivor

3.Epic Defender

These are the ones I currently know of.

The Issue

(I want to clarify that I know about the 10 alert/day cooldown and I did have valid alerts, I could see the reward on the map and I got the symbol of the reward along with other rewards in the Alert Rewards chest after the mission.)

After completing the mission, the Alert Reward Chest says you got a hero with the following text:

Epic Hero

Choice between two Epic Heroes.

But there's no choice after that. Fine, you collect the rest of the rewards.

Once you exit the chest menu, nothing happens. No choice of Epic hero is given, it's not in the Loot tab, the Heroes Tab, or the Transforms tab. Came to Reddit and looked it up, turns out the issue has been going on for months now.

Please upvote this post for visibility, a lot of people are spending time and resources on these missions but not getting their rewards. It has been reported before, but I hope Epic notices it this time and gives us our rewards.

(Note: I am linking this post through many posts about the same bug, don't intend to spam. Just trying to get Epic to finally notice this)

Hey everyone! I posted this on another thread and wanted to give it on this post as well. /u/RyanJacques!

Just a heads up that we've pinpointed the cause of this bug and will be implementing a fix in the near future. You can track the status of the bug on our Community Trello board.
