Online games can often become too competitive as that’s just the nature of how these games are and Fortnite is no exception to it. However, things start becoming an issue when your teammates get toxic or start harassing you. There is a chance that you might not have played the best but everyone has their bad days.
In order to combat such players, Fortnite has already implemented several measures like reporting, blocking or muting them. But if you want to take things a step further in making the game habitable and more friendly for new players, you now get the ability of voice reporting. So here is how it works and how you can use it.
What is Voice Reporting Tool in Fortnite & How it Works?
Voice Reporting as the name suggests, lets you submit audio evidence to Epic Games. After you enable it, the game will capture the last 5 minutes of the voice chat. This recording will then be saved to your console or PC locally instead of on the Epic Games’ Servers.
In case you report a player, this audio will then be uploaded and sent to Epic Games for review. As per Fortnite:
“Audio clips submitted to Epic for review will be auto-deleted after fourteen days or the duration of a sanction, whichever is longer. In the event of an appeal, retention may be extended for up to fourteen days so the sanction decision can be reviewed. If Epic needs to retain an audio clip to comply with legal obligations, it will be retained for as long as legally required.”
How to Enable Voice Reporting in Fortnite
In order to use Voice Reporting you will have to enable it. It is by default set as on for players under the age of 18 years. As for older players here is how you can change it.
- Open Fortnite and go to Settings.
