Fortnite revealed that developer Epic Games is still working on addressing known cosmetic issues they have found internally, as well as problems brought to their attention. The Fortnite team said that they have indeed noticed that a number of reported cosmetic bugs have manage to slip through the cracks. The team has been able to escalate and prioritize these issues so that a fix can be implemented.
Below are some of the issues that the team is focusing on:

The Fortnite team admitted that as the game continues to grow, they also continue to make improvements not only to the performance, but also the visual quality. The team said that generally what happens is that “you flip one switch and accidentally turn off another (not technical terms).”
The team revealed that it is currently working on ways to catch more if these bugs before they even make it out the door. Players are therefore encouraged to keep reporting these bugs to any of the game’s social channels.
Fortnite recently released patch v9.20, which brings with it a number of cosmetics changes. One of these included fixing an issue where cosmetics could occasionally block line of sight, preventing objects from being interacted with.
