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?

(Clip starts at 0:48 for mobile readers)

“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.

XP Coins have returned to Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to find all of them as of Season 5 Week 7.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!

How to disable pre-edits in Fortnite

After over a year of fan requests, Epic have added a ‘disable pre-edit’ option to Fortnite. Here’s where you can find it.

Published

In v15.20, Epic Games added a much-requested setting to Fortnite: ‘disable pre-edits.’ Here’s how it works and how to select it.

Finally, after years of Reddit threads, Twitter posts, and pro players begging, Epic added a ‘disable pre-edit’ setting to Fortnite.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new setting, including how it works and where to find it.

What does ‘pre-editing’ mean?

Pre-editing refers to the ability to edit a structure before placing it. The most popular use of pre-edits throughout Fortnite history was a cone/ramp edit when controller players had to use Combat Pro.

Now, however, very few players use pre-edits. Instead, pre-edits offer an obstacle, as they’re almost always completed by mistake. Of course, there are still some niche applications for pre-edits, but most players wanted Epic to add an option to disable these edits.

How to disable pre-edits

You can find the new option under the settings tab (cog wheel) in the start menu. Scroll down to the “Building” section, and you’ll see four options. One of them is the new “Disable Pre-Edit Option.”

If you turn this off, you’ll no longer be able to edit structures before placing them – good news for the bulk of the Fortnite community.

If may have taken Epic years to finally add this option, but it’s finally here. Next stop, an FoV slider!
