Fortnite split-screen: how to play with friends

Epic introduced the ability to play split-screen Fortnite with v11.30. Here’s how to do it.

Fortnite players have been longing for some new content over the past few weeks, and the v11.30 update delivered. We have some returning items, new mechanics, and the upcoming Star Wars event that’s sure to inject some excitement into the game.

One of the changes that seemed to get lost in the shuffle of the update was the ability to play split-screen Fortnite on consoles. For the first time, two players can use the same device to play Fortnite with one another.

Initiating split-screen is simple. All you have to do is connect two controllers to your Xbox or PS4 – the split-screen feature isn’t available on Switch, mobile, or PC just yet.

Log in to another account on your console and get to playing. You should both load into Fortnite and will be able to play split-screen. Player 1 will control the menu, which means the second player won’t be able to adjust their cosmetic loadout. The split-screen feature doesn’t activate in the lobby.

Update 12/13: At the time of this writing, Epic has disabled the split-screen feature – citing an unnamed issue.

The feature was short-lived and few players were able to experience split-screen Fortnite gameplay. We’ll keep you posted when they bring it back online.

Were you able to play split-screen Fortnite? If so, how did you like the layout? Let us know in the comments.

Fortnite Aim Assist is vastly different on PC and console

According to community reporting, arguments that aim assist is both overpowered and underpowered are both correct. Let’s explore.

Fortnite Mobile Controller Support

According to community reporting, arguments that aim assist is both overpowered and underpowered are both correct. Let’s explore.

We’ve all seen it: PC Fortnite pros complaining about getting lasered by controller players. They hate competing against controller players in tournaments and feel as though the latter group gets free aim while keyboard and mouse (KBM) players have to practice to compete.

After that, the argument goes back and forth. The controller players say that KBM has every advantage in the book and that aim assist isn’t that strong. In truth, a lot of the console players don’t want to compete with PC players, either.

I always wondered why PC players complained so much about aim assist. I play on Xbox One with Legacy settings and my L2 spam is nothing like it used to be. I see some controller pros like UnknownxArmy1x destroying kids with L2 and wonder why the same thing doesn’t happen to me.

In the past, I always chalked this up to poor aim. It feels like I’m aiming and tracking well, but I’m far from the level of some of the greats. Clips like this one have never happened to me.

According to community reporting on the r/FortniteBR subreddit, I’m not alone. Apparently, aim assist is far stronger on PC than it is on console.

I don’t have the stats to back this up, but it makes a lot of sense. I see controller players on PC destroying opponents. Meanwhile, my L2 doesn’t stick to players as it did before the settings update a while back.

This is a long post, but the summary is that aim assist on PC is leagues above aim assist on console. That’s why the community is so split when people like Bizzle complain.

The console players don’t understand the problem and feel like L2 is far weaker than it once was. Meanwhile, our PC friends are getting destroyed in tournaments by controller players who have better bloom and a lock-on aimbot.

The solution to this issue would be to slightly buff aim assist on console and/or slightly nerf aim assist on PC. This would make all of us happy and keep us on the same page.

There are still massive problems with console Fortnite

Epic is making adjustments to Fortnite through their unannounced and unexplained patches. One thing persists, however: the fact that Fortnite on console is a mess.

Epic is making adjustments to Fortnite through their unannounced and unexplained patches. One thing persists, however: the fact that Fortnite on console is a mess.

Late in Season 10, Epic opened the door to forced cross-platform. Now, all players on all platforms will be in the same lobby. PC players, console players, and mobile players are all duking it out together.

Mobile players really got the short end of the stick, here. They can’t do nearly as much as their console and PC counterparts, but that’s not the only performance gap that remains an issue.

Console performance in Fortnite Chapter 2 is at an all-time low. On any given day you’re bound to find a post or two about it if you visit the r/FortniteBR subreddit.

There is a long list of issues with Fortnite on Xbox and Playstation. Buildings don’t load, guns don’t load, you can’t see what’s in your inventory, your game freezes, players disappear; the list goes on and on.

Playing Arena on console is a crapshoot. You better hope you’re not contested when you land, or you’re going to get killed while you’re waiting for buildings to load in.

I play on Xbox One, so I experience these issues every day. Most of them would be manageable if it weren’t for the rendering. Buildings just don’t render when you first drop from the Battle Bus.

You’re dead almost every time if you don’t stumble upon some invisible floor loot.

The worst part is that there seems to be no mention of these problems on the Fortnite Community Issues Trello board. This isn’t the first time that console players have had rendering trouble, but Epic is seemingly lost on how to fix it.

It would all be a moot point if this was an even playing field. We wouldn’t have too much of a reason to complain if Playstation and Xbox players were still in isolated lobbies. We’d all be in the same boat.

The problem is that PC players never have this issue. They can kill us before we’re even able to break through a ceiling with our pickaxe. Are you struggling with these problems on console? Vent about it in the comments.
