Fortnite pro Bizzle hates playing against controller players and he wants everyone to know it. He went on a Twitter spree on November 14, telling the world how he feels about them.

The keyboard and mouse vs. controller rivalry rages on. This time, it’s Timothy “Bizzle” Miller weighing in on the issue. Is the aim assist debate played out? Apparently not, for some.

Ghost Bizzle is one of the top Fortnite pros in the world, earning hundreds of thousands of dollars in winnings over the past year-plus. His kryptonite? Controller aim assist.

Bizzle went on a bit of a Twitter rant last night, complaining about controller players in his tournament. This was likely in response to the Platform Cash Cups, where controller players on PC play with keyboard and mouse players. If it’s in reference to the general presence of controller players in all tournaments, though, these aren’t “PC tournaments.”

Fortnite is the first game to mix all players into one competitive pool. Controller and KBM players compete against one another for cash and bragging rights. Keyboard and mouse players have every advantage in the book save for one glaring element: aim assist.

Bizzle vs. controller players

Complaining about aim assist is a bit of a meme in Fortnite. The top KBM pros in the game need to practice their aim for hours to hit accurate shots, and feel as though controller players get it for free.

Bizzle is only the latest in a long line of Fortnite pros to complain about dying to a controller player.

Streamer and caster CourageJD responded to the clip above, saying, “LMAO bro cmon man. Aim assist isn’t that bad. Sure, sometimes it pisses us off but you can’t be serious that it’s that bad. You’re one of the best players in the game. Controllers players aren’t some pest that have run rampant. PC players still dominate,” to which Bizzle replied, “Stick to casting.”

It’s understandable for Bizzle and other top players to feel this way about aim assist. They have to practice to have the best aim in Fortnite and feel slighted when a controller player out-blooms them.

The problem, though, is that legions of fans will complain about aim assist as well. These players haven’t put in the same number of hours as people like Bizzle and Tfue, but still, complain when they get killed by a controller player.

NickMercs put it best when the new controller settings came out. If aim assist is so overpowered, then why is there only a small handful of successful Fortnite pros playing on a controller?

“If it’s so easy then all of these guys would be on controller.”

Playing with a controller on a PC is one thing, but playing on a console is a completely different animal. Speaking as a console player, we don’t want you guys in our lobbies, either. We have to cross our fingers that the buildings render every game, or hope that a lag spike doesn’t get us killed.

I think that the “controller aimbot” meme is tired at this point – at least people who are serious about it. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

Rumors

Why do fans think Fortnite X Thor is the next crossover?

The Avengers continue to invade Fortnite.

Recently, rumors have been swirling that Thor will be coming to Fortnite as the next in-game crossover. No, we’re not talking about Relaxed Fit Jonesy, who bears a striking similarity to both Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski and Thor from Avengers: Endgame. We’re talking about the real deal.

Recent rumors of a Thor crossover began on July 4, when Epic released their trailer for Captain America. When Cap landed, there was a noticeable marking on the ground, behind him. This rune looked an awful lot like the mark that The Bifröst leaves behind when Thor enters a scene.

This is only a small detail from a Fortnite trailer – and doesn’t mean very much in isolation. More recently, however, we saw a few more leaks that point to Thor’s potential inclusion in Fortnite.

The first leak relates to The Bifröst and the markings you see, above. A new “HighTower” event has been found in the game files, which is meant to kick off with a growing rift in the sky and strange markings around the map. Like the Captain America trailer, these markings look a lot like something that The Bifröst would create.

This could be a coincidence – something that has more to do with the Fortnite story than a hint to a Thor crossover. It’s not the only clue that we have, however.

In v13.40, data miners also found mention of readable comic books coming to Fortnite. Hypex was able to match some of the blurry in-game images to a real-life Marvel comic. The subject of that comic? You guessed it: Thor.

When you combine all of this news with the recent announcement of the promotional deal with the Avengers video game, it seems all but certain that Thor will be coming to Fortnite.

This is everything we have, for now. It might not be concrete evidence, but these are some strong hints. Will Thor be the catalyst to usher-in Season 4? We don’t know, just yet, but it’s safe to assume that he’ll be the Season 4 “secret” skin, at the very least.

Marvel fans will be happy to see Thor come to Fortnite – he was one of the core Avengers who was missing during the original Marvel crossovers. Classic Fortnite fans may be a bit disappointed, but additions like this one show how much Fortnite has grown. This is a shared universe where all of our favorite characters can come to play. We’re excited to see where Epic take this.

Limited Time Modes

Fortnite leaks point to the return of Getaway LTM & more

Fan-favorite Fortnite LTMs from Chapter 1 are rolling back in!

Published

on

The Fortnite LTM rotation was the subject of some harsh criticism for the first two seasons of Chapter 2. LTMs were virtually nonexistent for months. Epic tried something new with the Spy Games modes in Season 2, but fans never took to them as they did to some of the older game modes.

When Epic announced the Summer Smash event, however, they told players that LTMs would be returning. Most of these modes were smash-hits – particularly, the Unvaulted LTM, which reminded players how fun these silly items and weapons are to use.

There are still some unique LTMs missing from the lineup. Fan-favorites like ‘Floor is Lava’ and ‘Getaway’ were never added to Fortnite Chapter 2. Well, that may change in the near future.

Fortnite data miner, VastBlast, found threads of several LTMs that received hotfixes in the live Fortnite client. These LTMs include a couple of new modes like ‘Rags to Riches’ and ‘Tank Battle’ along with one of the most beloved Fortnite LTM in existence: ‘The Getaway.’

We don’t know when any of these LTMs are coming to Fortnite – if at all. At the same time, any change to these modes signifies that they’re probably returning soon. We could be seeing The Getaway come back to Fortnite for the first time since Chapter 1 Season 8.

Fans were delighted to hear that ‘The Getaway’ could be coming back. It’s one of the only unique Fortnite modes that doesn’t seem isolated to Chapter 1. We may never see games like ‘Air Royale’ or ‘Floor is Lava’ again, but there doesn’t seem to be any reason that Epic can’t release ‘The Getaway.’

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about the release date of this long-awaited LTM. Follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you don’t miss out on any Fortnite news.

Longtime Fortnite pro Saf signs with TSM

TSM announces their newest signing: Fortnite pro, Rocco ‘Saf’ Morales.

Published

on

The Fortnite signings don’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. The past month has seen some of the biggest names in Fortnite scooped-up left and right. Luminosity had a massive signing day, Clix and Ronaldo signed to NRG, and Bucke, Clalc, and HazThaGreat signed with BBG.

Today, August 10, TSM announced the newest member of their team: former Ghost member, Rocco ‘Saf’ Morales. The organization and Saf, himself, announced the signing with a Tweet and a video.

Saf joins ZexRow. Commandment, Reverse2k, and Mackwood on the competitive Fortnite TSM roster. TSM doesn’t have the largest roster in the game, but they have a collective of players who are always in the hunt to win any given tournament.

Unlike a lot of other pro players in the Fortnite community, Saf has been near the top for a long time. He and Zayt are one of – if not the – only duos left from the World Cup days, and both of them had been in the scene before that.

The continuous signings of Fortnite pros from tier-one organizations show that Fortnite – and the competitive scene – is alive and well. These organizations and players are in it for the long-haul. Fortnite isn’t going anywhere. Congrats to Safaroonie.
