Fortnite controller players are going up against players who scroll wheel reset. Here’s how to get as close to scroll wheel reset on the controller as you can.
Controller and PC gamers always seemed to have an amicable relationship before Fortnite came out. They were content to play in their own lobbies without facing the pros and cons of their platform.
Fortnite was the first competitive shooter to break down this barrier and push all of the top-level players into one lobby. The result? A massive debate over aim assist, PC advantages, and overall toxicity.
The open lobby format isn’t a bad thing. Breaking down the barriers between console and PC players is fantastic for the gaming community. The future of gaming will be cross-platform, and that’s unquestionably positive.
Right now, though, we’re living in the age of Twitter aim assist debates. Controller players list the advantages of playing on mouse and keyboard while PC players point to clips like this one from UnknownxArmy.
Regardless of your take on aim assist, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that keyboard and mouse players have a leg up when it comes to editing. Editing is far more fluid on that platform than it is on a controller, and scroll wheel reset is miles ahead of anything that controller players have.
It is possible to speed up your edit resets on a controller, though. For this, you’ll have to enable the ‘confirm edit on release’ setting. All you have to do is press your ‘initiate edit’ button before pressing your ‘confirm’ and ‘edit’ buttons at the same time. Here’s a video showing how it’s done.
I tried this a few times in Creative Mode and it’s considerably faster and more reliable than traditional resets. It takes some practice to get used to, though, and you run the risk of editing a window by accident.
I found that when you press your ‘edit’ button slightly before your ‘reset’ button, the windows appear less frequently. I’m sure that I’ll be able to limit these with more practice, however.
This strategy certainly isn’t scroll wheel reset as the video suggests, but it’s much quicker than anything else on controller. The only contender might be double edit binds, but that’s a topic for another time.
