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.

  1. Aim assist is a trade-off between platforms because while controller players are at a disadvantage in most things, they are given aim assist to help compensate in one area. Pc players will be better in a lot more ways most of the time, so i think epic’s idea is to help level the playing field. Aim assist is not that strong, sure it helps, but as a controller player personally i have turned it off and it is not that different. Controller players also have to aim with a thumbstick compared to the accuracy of a mouse.

  2. I see Bizzles point here,
    Lots of KnM players have been saying this for a while and also Pad players have also been asking to change the lobbies back to the way there were.
    Pad players cant edit or build as fast as KnM players, there are a few that can crack 90s just as fast tho, and with the update to edit/building sensitivity makes it easier for them to edit too.
    But in a Game like Fortnite it is not building or editing that kills your opponent its Shooting and Aiming that kills them , so the huge buff on Pad players aim assist is Stoopid after all Epic has done to make Editing and Building on Pad more easier but they have also gave every pad player Tracking and Aim like Shroud.
    To be lazered of a non serious on pad that has put no time into building or editing on pad but give them ridiculous aim and tracking does not make sense.
    KnM pro players not pushing Pad players because the fear of getting hit with the Kovaak aim assist from a pad players is a serious problem.
    Ps4 players do have major flaws like the Shadows or Fps but all Console players could just buy a PC and play on PC with a Pad, then the issues of these would not be a factor. While the issue of KnM players vs Pad players would still be there with this aim assist update.
    Zayn on stream in a wagers moaning about a pc player that he thought was on pad while he was playing against him on pad crying about his aim assist, Or Ghost Aiden at the world cup talking about how his team while do while due to his team mates play style and his own “amazing aim” all both upsetting and an issue.
    I hope epic Fix the lobbies, Fix the Aim assist and run separate tournaments for pad n KnM players if not i can see the next world cup being won by a pad player.
    Peace.

  3. PvZ Battle for Neighborville has aimbot in the settings. If there is such thing as aimbot lite this is it. It’s called heavy aim assist. It’s almost impossible to miss.
