If you happen to play Fortnite using a controller, then there are ways in which you can improve your game. There are a number of changes that you can make that will make you a more efficient player with your Fortnite weapons, building, and more. So before you pay a visit to the Fortnite item shop and hop on the battle bus, you should pay a visit to your settings.
What makes Fortnite stand out from the crowd is the building aspect within the game. The quicker that you can build, the better opportunity that you will have at surviving. With that in mind, you want to make sure that your build sensitivity sits around 1.9, and no higher than 2.1. This will ultimately give you more control over your building, with it not being too quick to use but will build effectively.
Fixing Your Aim
Another very important part of Fortnite, given that it’s a battle royale game, is shooting or more specifically, your aim. If you want to be the best shooter you can be, then you will want to set your sensitivity to what works for you. One way that you can work with improving your aim is with your thumbsticks. Having thumbsticks that cater to your playstyle can be a sure path to victory.
For more long-range weapons such as sniper rifles, then taller thumbsticks can work well to get the accuracy that you are looking for. Shorter domed thumbsticks meanwhile can help with short-range weapons such as shotguns.
Whilst looting is important, you need to be doing it in an effective manner. To make sure that your efficiency is as high as possible, then you should first switch on Tap to Search/Interact, which will allow you to find and grab items at the tap of a button, rather than holding a button-down. Then you should organize your inventory by prioritizing the items that you will need at short notice to the front of your backpack. This includes your weapons of choice, for both long and short-range options. Having these options at the tap of a button could be the difference between winning and losing.
Speaking of Fortnite weapons, you are going to find yourself wanting to cycle through your weaponry as quickly as you can. Many will use SCUF controllers for these kinds of situations, and you can use your controller paddle for a way in which to switch between weapons quickly when pinned down in a firefight. If you want something that’s as close to a mouse approach as possible, then Digital Tap Bumpers allow you to click quickly as you would using a mouse.
Be Aware of Your Surroundings
As you will have noticed with each passing season, the landscape often changes depending on what theme is introduced. With that in mind, you should take the time to see what’s different, and how it can be used to your advantage. See if there are any special vantage points, familiarise yourself with using unique new features such as traveling across water, using vehicles, and more.
Take these tips into account and you will find yourself building far more efficiently, and will be making the most of your Fortnite weapons. Your settings may not always be at the forefront of your priorities, but they can be a true difference-maker if you can adapt your style of play. When you have done so, you can expect to be racking up the victory royales in no time.
