Fortnite pro exposes bloom issue on controller vs. keyboard & mouse

Sentinels pro Animal has posted a Twitter video that exposes the differences of bloom on controller vs. keyboard and mouse.

The debate over aim assist is one that’s been raging ever since Epic introduced their cross-play tournament structure.

Keyboard and mouse (KBM) players don’t like the idea of getting beamed by the infamous ‘L2 spam.’ Epic has adjusted aim assist, reducing the number of controller players who use the ‘L2 spam’ setting – called Legacy – but that didn’t stop the momentum of the meme.

On the other side of the argument, controller players say that the KBM community benefits in every category apart from aim. KBM players have a higher overall skill ceiling – including in the aim department if they practice enough.

That’s the key point, however: practice. High-level KBM players don’t like the concept of spending hours practicing their aim, only to be out-gunned by a controller player spamming the left trigger.

The prevalence of ‘L2 spam’ has gone down since Epic implemented the new aiming settings. A lot of controller pros now use Linear aim assist – and some even use Exponential. Aiming with these settings does not allow you to lock-on when you tap L2.

There are still several top controller players using Legacy – the aim assist setting that allows for ‘L2 spam.’ There have been arguments that using this setting limits your bloom, which is what Animal was exploring in the clip below.

By the way that Animal is spamming ADS (aim down sights), it’s safe to assume that he’s using the Legacy settings. When you compare this to the bloom he had while using a mouse, the difference is clear.

Will this discrepancy be the case every time? Probably not. I’m a controller player and I get bloomed to death all of the time. Still, spamming L2 is far more consistent than letting your shots fly. I’ve seen it for myself.

For some reason, spamming your ADS on a controller seems to reset the bloom. In response to his first tweet, Animal made it clear that this isn’t a debate on whether or not aim assist is overpowered. He just wants Epic to revert the bloom setting for all platforms.

Unfortunately, I don’t think Epic is going to change anything, here. If they do, it will likely be a nerf to the Legacy ADS-spam rather than a buff to KBM bloom.

What do you think of this clip? Does Epic need to make a change? Let us know in the comments.

Fortnite Fishstick Shot at love

One Fortnite Season 5 Week 11 challenge requires players to collect Grimbles’ love potion from Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, or Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s where you need to go.

This week’s Fortnite challenges are a lot more difficult than ones we’ve seen in the recent past. We have to search several specific locations to help Fishstick find love and, more importantly, earn some XP.

Here are all of the Grimbles love potion locations in Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, and Stealthy Stronghold. You only need to find one, so this guide should help.

Grimble’s love potion locations

You can find one love potion in each Coral Cove, Stealthy Stronghold, and Fort Crumpet.

The first, in Fort Crumpet, can be found on the bottom floor of the fort in a roped-off room. The Coral Cove potion is located behind the main building of the unnamed POI.

In Stealthy Stronghold, the potion is located in the middle of the POI, next to a chest in one of the ruins. Here’s a map that should help you out.

Deliver the love potion to Slurpy Swamp or Shanty Town

Once you find the love potion, you need to deliver it to Slurpy Swamp or Shanty Town. The easiest place to visit is Slurpy Swamp.

Here, you’ll find the location in that boxed-room that houses slurp barrels and a Teddy bear sitting on a chair. Frequent visitors of Slurpy Swamp should know the location all too well. All you need to do is interact with the love potion and receive your XP.

This is a difficult week of challenges for Fortnite players, but the XP is well worth the grind. You can take a look at the rest of the Fortnite Season 5 Week 11 challenges here.

Ninja goes off on the Fortnite community after getting stream sniped

Ninja returned to Fortnite to find the same old stream snipers. As expected, he gave them a piece of his mind.

Ninja sounded off on stream snipers in the Fortnite community during one of his recent streams.

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is one of the primary streamers who helped Fortnite rise to the height of popularity we see it today. He’s stepped away from the game of late but often comes back to play a few rounds between his Valorant streams.

Although Ninja doesn’t take Fortnite as seriously as he once did, he still faces a large number of stream snipers who want to eliminate him for clout. Ninja has always been outspoken about stream snipers but went all-in during one of his recent Fortnite streams.

“The community – these little f***ing kids – It’s so dumb. It really is,” Ninja vented. “And the thing is, these little clout chasing losers have no idea, man. All they’re doing is harming the game. Because I’m not gonna play it. I’m not gonna stream it.”

(Clip begins at 3:38)

“Good for you, man. Get your f***ing clip, send it to your buddies,” Ninja continued. “‘We killed Ninja!’ I haven’t played the game in – ever. I don’t play it anymore. I come back and I still almost kill all of you idiots.”

Ninja went on to say that it must be far worse for players like Bugha, who won the Fortnite World Cup. If stream sniping is bad for someone like Ninja, then it must be far worse for an actual top competitive Fortnite player.

Ninja has done a lot of good for the Fortnite community, helping it become one of the biggest games of all time. Stream snipers may be a part of the reason he doesn’t play as much as he once did.

We don’t think Ninja will completely stop playing Fortnite, but the constant stream sniping is clearly getting to him. Hopefully, this doesn’t dissuade Ninja from continuing to experience the fun side of Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 10 Challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 10 challenges are here. Take a look at all of the weekly quests and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 10 is here, which means even more ways to cruise through the Battle Pass. Here are all of the challenges and how to complete them.

We still have more than a month left in Fortnite Season 5, with the end date set for March 15. Until then, players will be grinding through the Battle Pass and into the enlightened skins for the season.

This week, players will be able to take it easy, without too many difficult or specific challenges. We will have to pickaxe enemies and fight the pesky IO Guards, but this week’s challenges are easier than they have been in the recent past.

Let’s get into what we need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 10 Challenges

  • Use food consumables (3)
  • Eliminations with Common Weapons (1)
  • Go for a swim at Lazy Lake (1)
  • Dance near Pleasant Park (1)
  • Deal Melee Damage (300)
  • Upgrade weapons (3)
  • Eliminate IO Guards (5)

The Epic challenges for the week are as straightforward as they come. Dancing near Pleasant Park, for instance, is a simple as it sounds. You can land at the location, get some loot, run about 20 meters away, and emote.

If you want to upgrade weapons quickly, we suggest visiting Brutus in Dirty Docks, grabbing what you can, and bringing it to him for an upgrade. With a Common weapon, you may even be able to get all three in one game.

The Legendary challenges for the week require players to destroy sofas, beds, or chairs. You’ll need to do this 100 times to unlock all of the rewards, which is pretty easy over the course of a week.

You’ll have until February 11 to complete this challenge, but will be able to finish the Epic quests after that deadline. Stay tuned for more Fortnite challenge guides, as we’ll keep you posted when next week’s challenges are available.
