The ability to ‘edit’ builds and structures with controllers in Fortnite: Battle Royale has been the topic of heavy debate between players.
For an extended period of time, Fortnite players on consoles were only able to edit their builds at a much slower rate than their PC counterparts.
On September 18, the release of the V5.41 update brought a reduced ‘edit button hold time’ on console, meaning that players can now make adjustments much quicker than before.
Exact changes for controller editing times can be viewed below.
- “Reduced the edit button hold timing when using a controller.
- Old School from 0.25s to 0.2s.
- Quick Builder from 0.25s to 0.2s.
- Combat Pro from 0.25s to 0.2s.
- Builder Pro from 0.25s to 0.15s.”
Having the ability to edit on-the-fly is a major component in Fortnite, and can often be the difference between life and death in high-intensity situations.
