Fortnite player showcases in-game ‘aimbot’ with controller settings

There has been a lot of talk about aim assist in Fortnite. One player shows just how powerful Linear aim assist can be.



There has been a lot of talk about aim assist in Fortnite. One player shows just how powerful Linear aim assist can be.

It’s no secret that the hottest debate in Fortnite focuses on aim assist. Is it too powerful? Do controller players really need that much help? Do the advantages of keyboard and mouse (KBM) outweigh the power of aim assist?

A lot of controller players argue that aim assist is fine the way it is. Most of us are console players, after all, and don’t experience the same FPS that makes PC aim assist so powerful. Many controller-on-console players don’t want the forced cross-platform either, so they respond to aim assist clips saying as much.

One Fortnite player, @lluka_r, showed just how powerful aim assist can be. In this clip, the player’s crosshairs are following his opponent. The catch? He wasn’t even touching his controller.

@lluka_r was using Linear aim assist for this, which is one of the newer settings. The old ‘L2 spam’ setting is called Legacy. To anyone who thinks that L2 spam is extinct: you’re wrong. You just have to switch to Legacy – but that’s another topic.

It’s hard to deny how powerful this aim assist setting can be at close-range. You can track an opponent without even touching your right stick.

For those who don’t know, stick drift refers to one of your sticks moving without you touching it. It happens when your dead zones are low and is usually considered a bad thing for most games.

Fortnite is different, though, as you can see by the power that Linear aim assist has. All of the L2 spammers on Legacy – myself included – should probably consider moving to Linear in the near future.

Keyboard and mouse players have a massive advantage in nearly every category – including aim if you take aim assist away. Your average KBM player can do a lot more with their mechanics than your average controller player can – especially considering that most controller players use a console.

Still, even as a console player, it’s hard to deny that this aim assist setting is probably too powerful. You shouldn’t be rewarded for not moving your sticks. Unfortunately for all of the competitive KBM players, Epic has traditionally dragged their feet when it comes to addressing aim assist in the past.


How to enter vaults without a keycard in Fortnite Season 3

The Fortnite vault glitch has returned for Season 3; this time, with a different method.



Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 was the first season to introduce vaults. It was also the first season in which players found an exploit to get into the vaults without a keycard. This method was popularized by YouTuber OrangeGuy, who showed fans how use a boat and a few building materials to enter a vault without killing the boss.

This exploit existed for most of Season 2, but was patched when season 3 came out. Well, as you may expect, it didn’t take long for players to figure out another way to get into the vault without a card. Instead of a boat, this exploit requires a helicopter.

For preparation, you’ll need a Helicopter, Upgrade Bench, and a teammate. Here are the steps you’ll need to complete in order to get into the vault without a card:

Step 1: Destroy the tile covering the vault you want to enter
Step 2: Land the helicopter on the broken floor
Step 3: Switch seats and begin to build
Step 4: Have a teammate throw the Upgrade Bench underneath the helicopter

If you complete these steps correctly, you should be pushed under the map and into the vault. Here’s a tutorial from Glitch King that will show you the step-by-step walkthrough.

Getting out of the vault is now your problem. This glitch is meant to surprise and eliminate an enemy, but you could always send your teammate to kill the boss and let you out if no one comes by. This isn’t the most broken method in the world, as you’ll be trapped if you don’t open the vault the normal way. Still, it can make for a funny clip or two.

This method takes a bit more setup than last season’s, but we may still see a streamer or two surprised by someone hiding in a closed vault. Only time will tell.

Bugha becomes the first esports pro to sign with Gary V’s VaynerGaming

Fortnite World Cup solo champion, Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf, has signed with Gary Vaynerchuk’s agency, VaynerSports.



Fortnite pro, Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf, became a household name overnight when he took home the first Fortnite World Cup Solos competition in 2019. The relatively unknown pro catapulted to the top of the Twitch charts when he returned home for the event, $3 million richer.

Now, Bugha can add another first to his resume – the first gamer signed to Gary Vaynerchuk’s new esports agency, VaynerGaming. The announcement came on July 14, the same day that the entrepreneur announced his company’s entrance into the gaming space.

In a press release that announced the new venture, Vaynerchuk stated, “I have been quietly paying attention to the gaming industry for over a decade, building relationships and following the trends. One of the most exciting things about it, for me, is the gamers themselves. And when I look at the culture, the interest in the sector from other athletes, artists, celebrities — it is enormous. This is a very significant expansion for VaynerSports.”

Bugha will be the first of many gamers to be represented by VaynerGaming as it expands into this new territory. We can expect some other high-profile signings from Fortnite and other top video games. It’s exciting to see gaming break through to the mainstream in this way, and could mean big things for the future of the Fortnite community.

Patch Notes

Epic disable the elusive Golden Mushroom in Fortnite

The Golden Mushroom has reportedly been disabled in all Fortnite modes.



Almost all Fortnite players know about the Mythic Goldfish in Fortnite Chapter 2 – the rarest item that Epic have ever added to the game. It’s so rare that fans wondered if it even existed for a while. Since its release, there’s still only been a handful of recorded sightings of the Mythic Goldfish.

In Season 3, Epic added another rare item to the game: The Golden Mushroom. According to data miners, this mushroom has the same chance to spawn as the Mythic Goldfish, making it one of the rarest items in all of Fortnite. To this day, we’ve only seen one clip of the Golden Mushroom outside of Creative Mode.

When the mushroom first came out, SypherPK put a county on its head. He offered his fans cash if they could find the mushroom in-game, and a bonus if they found it in a joinable Battle Lab match. Here’s the only known clip of the Golden Mushroom in Fortnite.

When Sypher picked it up and put it in his inventory, the Golden Mushroom turned into a regular old mushroom that only healed for five shield. This bug is likely why the item was disabled on July 13, according to data miner reports.

One of the rarest items in Fortnite should offer a reward for finding it. It seemed like this one had an issue that led to it becoming a disappointment. On July 13, Hypex tweeted that Epic pushed a hotfix to disable the Golden Mushroom.

At the time of writing, there’s still no mention of the Golden Mushroom on the Fortnite Community Issues Trello Board. The hunt appears to be stalled – at least, for the time being. We’ll let you know when the Mushroom comes back to Fortnite but, for now, you can stop searching for it.
