Controller pro slams players who complain about aim assist

Fortnite controller pro and Simon Cup winner, Bugzvii, blasts mouse and keyboard players who complain about aim assist.

Fortnite was the first game to effectively bridge the gap between the PC and console players, which is a huge step in the right direction. An unfortunate byproduct of this cross-platform world is toxicity between those who use different inputs.

Players who use mouse and keyboard have – and always will – complain about aim assist on controller. Controller players, on the other hand, argue that it’s much easier to aim, edit, and (in some cases) build while using a mouse and keyboard.

Each day gives us a new take on the M&K vs. controller debate, with no end in sight. There are plenty of clips that show the power of aim assist, along with clips of PC players showing-out on their platform.

The most recent Fortnite pro to weigh in on the debate was Bugzvii, a controller player and the winner of the Simon Cup. He explained how “easy” it is to use a mouse and keyboard, then demonstrated his point while 1v1ing a viewer.

Bugz, clearly, doesn’t have a ton of experience using mouse and keyboard. He didn’t even know his bind to switch to his AR – something that’s relatively common for those who switch inputs. Still, he beat his viewer and displayed the superior aim of mouse and keyboard.

“If it was so hard, then I wouldn’t be able to kill him, right?” Bugz said before eliminating his opponent. “I don’t know my AR button, and I’m still killing him by just pointing and shooting.”

As a controller player, myself, it’s impossible to argue that there aren’t some overpowered elements of aim assist in Fortnite. Close-range fights with an SMG will always favor controller players, but that’s not the case with the shotgun.

Aim assist is helpful, but it’s much easier to get the fat 200-pumps while using a mouse. Players who have switched from controller to mouse and keyboard will be the first to tell you that.

Epic will never completely remove aim assist from Fortnite. The best that M&K players can hope for is that Epic will split the tournaments between the two inputs – something that they’ve already begun to do.

For the first time, Epic split the prize pools between PC and console in the FNCS. This is likely the first step towards running a controller-only tournament with mouse and keyboard on the other side.

We saw a ton of PC pros complain about this shift in relation to the equal prize pools. This is – in my opinion – shortsighted. These same pros are calling for split tournaments, which will require equal prize pools.

Epic has started to respond to the aim assist complaints. On top of splitting the tournaments, they also announced the removal of Legacy aim assist – something that still hasn’t happened. Hopefully, they don’t take things too far and risk losing a large percentage of their player base in the era of forced cross-platform.


Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 Challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 challenges are here! Take a look at how to complete them.



It seems like just yesterday that we were staying up all night, waiting for the new season of Fortnite. Surprisingly, we’re already into Week 6 with another batch of challenges to help carry us through the Battle Pass.

Although weekly challenges offer a lower amount of XP this season, it seems like we’re working through the Battle Pass quicker than normal. Even still, we have a long way to go before we unlock all of our holographic variants, so we’ll be grinding away at these challenges.

The week’s challenges are pretty straightforward. All we need to do is consume some foraged items, deal some damage, and search some chests. Here are the challenges for Week 6:

  • Search Chests at Weeping Woods (7)
  • Eliminations at Misty Meadows (3)
  • Collect Stone from Coral Castle (300)
  • Consume a Legendary Fish
  • Consume Foraged Items at Holly Hedges (10)
  • Ride a Zipline from Retail Row to Steamy Stacks
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Black Panther’s Kinetic Shockwave (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Slurpy Swamp (500)

The inclusion of a challenge involving Black Panther’s ability suggests that we could see it come into the base game this week, but we don’t know that for sure. Epic could be pushing us toward the Marvel-based LTMs that have been rotating in and out of the game. We’ll know more when these challenges go live, tomorrow.

Collecting foraged items at Holly Hedges is as easy as taking some damage in Team Rumble and eating the Cabbage that is growing in the backyards of a few houses.

If you’re having trouble catching a legendary fish, take a look at our fishing guide for Season 4. You should be able to catch one if you hit a fishing hole with a Pro Fishing Rod – but this one will take a bit of persistence.

There’s a zipline network that connects Steamy Stacks and Retail Row, so you just have to ride this once and be done with it.

Apart from that, the rest of these challenges are straightforward. Of course, you’ll also need to land at Weeping, Slurpy, and Misty to get your chests, damage, and elimination. Good luck!

New esports org Gamma Gaming makes splash with Fortnite roster

A new organization, Gamma Gaming, has entered the professional Fortnite arena with some huge signings.



Fortnite is, again, the driving force behind the creation of an esports organization – this time, in the European market. Gamma Gaming – established by Arsenal FC player, Sead Kolašinac – made a splash on the EU Fortnite scene by announcing the acquisition of six Fortnite players on September 27.

The announcement included some of the hottest professional free agents in the region: Th0masHD, Kami, Tschinken, and Merijn along with content creators Obitoo and Mambo.

The most noteworthy of these acquisitions is, likely, Th0masHD who qualified for the Fortnite World Cup, placed 4th in the recent Solo FNCS, won the BenjyFishy Cup, and, most recently, placed first and second in two of the FNCS Warmup competitions.

Going into the Season 4 Trios FNCS, he and his team are one of the top picks to win it all.

Gamma Gaming’s model follows that of another new organization, One Percent, which has built its foundation on the back of their professional Fortnite lineup. The young org will, undoubtedly, branch out from here, but they’re starting with solid EU Fortnite talent.

With some strong European players on their team, it will be interesting to see where these new Gamma Gaming recruits land when the FNCS competition comes around. We have a new organization to keep our eyes on.

Fortnite leak reveals new SHIELD Henchmen coming soon

New Henchmen are coming to Fortnite, pointing to the spawn island helicarrier entering Fortnite as a POI.



Fortnite Season 4 might be the most progressively evolving season of Chapter 2, so far. We’re getting the map evolution that we thought we’d get last season, this time with fan-favorite Marvel characters.

Players were split as to whether or not the Marvel crossover would be good for Fortnite. Now, five weeks in, it’s hard to argue that Season 4 isn’t the most entertaining season in the new chapter. Epic are keeping the game fresh and it’s bringing players back. There’s a reason that Ninja is playing Fortnite again, this season.

One of the map developments that hasn’t yet come to the game is a helicarrier appearing above the map. This is rumored to be the same helicarrier used as the Season 4 pregame island.

More recently, however, popular data miner, Hypex, revealed that there are unused Henchmen in the game files. These Henchmen are, reportedly, members of the Marvel Comics organization, SHIELD.

According to this leak, SHIELD is running the spawn island helicarrier as a base of operations. Another leaker, ShiinaBR, replied to Hypex’s tweet, linking these two pieces of information. His conclusion was that the SHIELD Henchmen will enter the game when the helicarrier moves over the map.

We’ve already seen several Fortnite creators like SypherPK and Ali-A make their way to the spawn island from a Battle Royale lobby. There’s a vault on this island, and they tested whether or not one of the keys that Doctor Doom or Iron Man carry will unlock it. As you might expect, their keys didn’t work.

All of this points to the idea that the current helicarrier – or spawn island – will, eventually, be a POI in Fortnite. We may have to build up to it or take a helicopter, making it one of the more exclusive places to loot. For now, all we can do is speculate – but we’ll let you know when we learn more.
