Tfue has been speaking rather a lot about switching to controller not too long ago. Most individuals assumed it was all discuss, however he not too long ago ordered an Xbox Elite controller, which means the change is perhaps for actual.
There is a ton of debate with regards to controller vs. mouse and keyboard in Fortnite. Anyone who has watched top-level Fortnite gamers is aware of that they routinely complain about intention help once they get killed by an L2 spammer.
As a controller participant myself, I can attest that intention help is actual. Aiming with a small piece of plastic is way tougher than aiming together with your entire wrist, although, so it is smart to have a crutch to lean on generally.
Spamming L2 is a factor, nevertheless it’s situational. For occasion, virtually no controller participant can observe an opponent gliding within the sky and do sufficient injury to kill them – one thing you see PC gamers doing all the time.
Spamming L2 in these situations helps to degree the enjoying discipline, however individuals utilizing a mouse will nonetheless have the benefit. When you add sniping to this debate – a component that negates intention help – you may see why the controller group is combating again so arduous.
That’s earlier than we even get into the constructing and modifying mechanics in Fortnite. People on keyboard and mouse can have the whole lot certain to totally different keys. They have scroll wheel reset for edits, and may full constructing methods that make it appear like they’re in 2x velocity.
There’s little doubt that folks on keyboard and mouse have a large benefit in Fortnite. So why, then, is Fortnite’s high identify enthusiastic about switching to controller?
Tfue on controller
Tfue has been speaking about switching to controller for a number of months now. Aim help might be a part of his reasoning, nevertheless it’s solely a bit of the puzzle. He actually thought of making the change due to the comparatively new controller settings Epic has launched.
Epic has made it rather a lot simpler to play on a controller in current seasons. They added customized keybinds together with constructing and modifying sensitivity – one thing that keyboard and mouse gamers haven’t got.
It’s this setting that acquired Tfue keen on utilizing a controller. He performs on low sensitivity so his intention can keep constant, however he feels as if it holds him again when constructing and modifying. He desires the flexibility to vary his constructing sensitivity with out compromising his intention.
As you may see from the video above, Tfue purchased – or severely thought of shopping for – a controller on stream. It seems just like the change is about to occur.
My guess is that it will likely be for the content material if Tfue does find yourself switching to controller. Fellow content material creator High Distortion not too long ago made the change to controller, saying the sport is extra enjoyable for him that manner.
HD has talked actually about why he switched, although. He performed on a controller for years and is snug with it, and has even admitted to utilizing it as a car for brand new content material.
He has conceded, although, that when he competes in occasions like Friday Fortnite he nonetheless plans on utilizing a mouse and keyboard. HD isn’t an expert Fortnite participant and cares extra about his content material than he does about competing at a excessive degree all the time.
In actuality, the Tfue change will seemingly be the identical if it finally ends up taking place. He’ll fiddle on controller for a number of weeks, however will return to mouse and keyboard when a contest rolls round. He definitely will not be switching earlier than the World Cup finals on the finish of the month.
Tfue will get some good content material and hundreds of thousands of views out of it, nevertheless it in all probability will not be a everlasting change.
