There has been a lot of discussion about adding a FOV slider in the game called Fortnite. FOV he is abbreviation of Field Of View. All the competitive players for a long time played on stretched resolutions to earn the advantage of the wider FOV. However, the company later decided to ban stretched resolutions to level the playing field amongst players.
The competitive players in the community reached with outrage and demanded that the developer of Fortnite called Epic Games added a FOV slider to the in game settings like many other games have it. Then, Epic Games responded that the default FOV of 80, was decided on as it have the best balance and reduced motion sickness. However, most of players later debunked this and called out Epic Games for the explanation. It seems like the fire around the topic has died out a little recently, but there is still a hope that Epic Games will someday reconsider their opinion on the FOV slider.
Players want some way of increasing their vertical and horizontal view while in a match, and the easiest method of doing so would be with the Epic Games adding the new graphic settings that allows the players to increase or decrease the angle of their view. People think that having the increased FOV will allow the players to have the better views of vertical build fights, that would improve their performance in matches by reducing the blind spots where the opponents can be and eliminate them from.
Here at ProSettings, there is a FOV slider concept as how it could be implemented into the game.
