Preliminary information

Before going into detail on the procedure on how to put the crushed view on Fortnite PS4 , I think you may be interested to know more about this possibility.

Well, the squashed view (often called stretched resolution , in English) is a resolution that is used by players of the popular Epig Games title to increase the size of the enemies that appear on the screen and, consequently, see them in more detail to hit them. more easily. The stretched resolution works in this way: the X axis is decreased, while the Y axis is increased (hence the name “crushed view”). However, there are multiple variations of this resolution and some players refer to this term also to refer simply to a view that does not go 100% to cover the screen.

In short, it is a method that allows you to have an important competitive advantage over your opponents. On computers, however, this technique is not viewed favorably, since to activate it you have to go and get your hands on the game files.

On PlayStation 4, however, there is no need to do any of this, since there is a native feature to change the resolution of the console . Exploiting this method is therefore not considered a hack.

In case you just can’t find the resolution that’s right for you, you might think to use the video settings of the TV , looking for the Image option and the Aspect Ratio parameter (you have to set it to 4: 3).

Unfortunately, I cannot be more precise with my indications, as each model of TV makes history in itself. In any case, I invite you to consult the instruction manual of your TV for further information.
