Normal - FIrst time you show a HUD message device with Verse, it goes away after 5 secs

Not sure if its just my game, but I have a verse script showing a HUD message device, but the first time it triggers, it would show only for 5 seconds (the default setting), even if the duration is turned off. The second time it will work correctly.

Here is a video showing the issue (timestamped): Domus mortem - Fortnite uefn. - YouTube

@Wertandrew Thank you for your report! We would like to look into this further, would you be able to submit a bug report using the form available here? Fortnite Creative

Is this still happening? If so, could I get you project? We’re unable to reproduce here.

It still happens with latest Fortnite update 25.11 . The first time you open it up, the HUD will go away if you wait with it open. So repro is:

-Play Domus Mortem (
-Reach to the point where you get the first clue (Office with aquarium)
-When you get the clue, press crouch and dont do anything
-You ll see the menu for a while, but it will go away after a while. Happens only the first time.
