Nick Eh 30 stands up for controller players everywhere

Nick Eh 30 is fed up with hearing the ‘controller aim assist’ excuse in Fortnite.

It’s not every day that we see a high-profile keyboard and mouse (KBM) player stand up for the controller community. We’re used to players like Bugha, Ninja, and countless other KBM players bashing anyone who uses the input – both competitively and casually.

The truth of the matter is that most Fortnite players are likely using a controller. Console gaming is far more accessible than PC gaming is, which means the console Fortnite market is almost certainly bigger than the PC market.

Ninja is one person who has made it clear that he’s talking about using a controller on PC with higher frame rates and lower input delay. Still, the constant complaints trigger controller players who have been listening to the pros and streamers bash them since forced cross-platform became a thing.

Streamer Nick Eh 30 recently took exception to all of these aim assist complaints from high-level players.

“You wanna know the thing that really, really annoys me lately?” Nick asked his stream. “Every single person that dies in this game, now, defaults to saying, ‘Oh my God, it was aim assist.’ That’s gotta be the lamest excuse I’ve ever heard, man. It’s so irritating.

“It’s not even overpowered anymore with the new changes,” he continued, “and also the fact that you can do exactly the same thing you can do on PC.”

“The majority of people that are dying to ‘aim assist’ … it’s just people who don’t want to accept the loss,” Nick concluded.

This one might fall into the ‘hot take’ category with so many KBM streamers and pro players complaining about aim assist. Just yesterday, pro player Zayt called all controller players cheaters – a common mantra of the KBM community.

To be fair, the Exponential and Linear aim assist settings are probably too strong from point-blank range. Your reticle does follow the player when they’re close to you, which is too much.

From distance, however, controller players are purely relying on mechanical skill to hit their shots. The Legacy lock-on setting doesn’t exist, so complaining about getting killed by aim assist from over 100 meters is, simply, incorrect.

Another fair point is the recoil difference. Recoil is lower on a controller, which could be adjusted on KBM to be in line with what controller players have. Still, these complaints tend to ring hollow when you continuously see pros accuse fellow KBM players of using a controller.

Nick Eh 30 is one of the only KBM players to stick up for the controller community throughout all of this ‘controller aimbot’ trend. There are some problems with aim assist in Fortnite, but the issues can’t be as widespread as these pro players make them seem.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 Challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 challenges are here! Take a look at how to complete them.

It seems like just yesterday that we were staying up all night, waiting for the new season of Fortnite. Surprisingly, we’re already into Week 6 with another batch of challenges to help carry us through the Battle Pass.

Although weekly challenges offer a lower amount of XP this season, it seems like we’re working through the Battle Pass quicker than normal. Even still, we have a long way to go before we unlock all of our holographic variants, so we’ll be grinding away at these challenges.

The week’s challenges are pretty straightforward. All we need to do is consume some foraged items, deal some damage, and search some chests. Here are the challenges for Week 6:

  • Search Chests at Weeping Woods (7)
  • Eliminations at Misty Meadows (3)
  • Collect Stone from Coral Castle (300)
  • Consume a Legendary Fish
  • Consume Foraged Items at Holly Hedges (10)
  • Ride a Zipline from Retail Row to Steamy Stacks
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Black Panther’s Kinetic Shockwave (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Slurpy Swamp (500)

The inclusion of a challenge involving Black Panther’s ability suggests that we could see it come into the base game this week, but we don’t know that for sure. Epic could be pushing us toward the Marvel-based LTMs that have been rotating in and out of the game. We’ll know more when these challenges go live, tomorrow.

Collecting foraged items at Holly Hedges is as easy as taking some damage in Team Rumble and eating the Cabbage that is growing in the backyards of a few houses.

If you’re having trouble catching a legendary fish, take a look at our fishing guide for Season 4. You should be able to catch one if you hit a fishing hole with a Pro Fishing Rod – but this one will take a bit of persistence.

There’s a zipline network that connects Steamy Stacks and Retail Row, so you just have to ride this once and be done with it.

Apart from that, the rest of these challenges are straightforward. Of course, you’ll also need to land at Weeping, Slurpy, and Misty to get your chests, damage, and elimination. Good luck!

New esports org Gamma Gaming makes splash with Fortnite roster

A new organization, Gamma Gaming, has entered the professional Fortnite arena with some huge signings.

Fortnite is, again, the driving force behind the creation of an esports organization – this time, in the European market. Gamma Gaming – established by Arsenal FC player, Sead Kolašinac – made a splash on the EU Fortnite scene by announcing the acquisition of six Fortnite players on September 27.

The announcement included some of the hottest professional free agents in the region: Th0masHD, Kami, Tschinken, and Merijn along with content creators Obitoo and Mambo.

The most noteworthy of these acquisitions is, likely, Th0masHD who qualified for the Fortnite World Cup, placed 4th in the recent Solo FNCS, won the BenjyFishy Cup, and, most recently, placed first and second in two of the FNCS Warmup competitions.

Going into the Season 4 Trios FNCS, he and his team are one of the top picks to win it all.

Gamma Gaming’s model follows that of another new organization, One Percent, which has built its foundation on the back of their professional Fortnite lineup. The young org will, undoubtedly, branch out from here, but they’re starting with solid EU Fortnite talent.

With some strong European players on their team, it will be interesting to see where these new Gamma Gaming recruits land when the FNCS competition comes around. We have a new organization to keep our eyes on.

Leak

Fortnite leak reveals new SHIELD Henchmen coming soon

New Henchmen are coming to Fortnite, pointing to the spawn island helicarrier entering Fortnite as a POI.

Published

Fortnite Season 4 might be the most progressively evolving season of Chapter 2, so far. We’re getting the map evolution that we thought we’d get last season, this time with fan-favorite Marvel characters.

Players were split as to whether or not the Marvel crossover would be good for Fortnite. Now, five weeks in, it’s hard to argue that Season 4 isn’t the most entertaining season in the new chapter. Epic are keeping the game fresh and it’s bringing players back. There’s a reason that Ninja is playing Fortnite again, this season.

One of the map developments that hasn’t yet come to the game is a helicarrier appearing above the map. This is rumored to be the same helicarrier used as the Season 4 pregame island.

More recently, however, popular data miner, Hypex, revealed that there are unused Henchmen in the game files. These Henchmen are, reportedly, members of the Marvel Comics organization, SHIELD.

According to this leak, SHIELD is running the spawn island helicarrier as a base of operations. Another leaker, ShiinaBR, replied to Hypex’s tweet, linking these two pieces of information. His conclusion was that the SHIELD Henchmen will enter the game when the helicarrier moves over the map.

We’ve already seen several Fortnite creators like SypherPK and Ali-A make their way to the spawn island from a Battle Royale lobby. There’s a vault on this island, and they tested whether or not one of the keys that Doctor Doom or Iron Man carry will unlock it. As you might expect, their keys didn’t work.

All of this points to the idea that the current helicarrier – or spawn island – will, eventually, be a POI in Fortnite. We may have to build up to it or take a helicopter, making it one of the more exclusive places to loot. For now, all we can do is speculate – but we’ll let you know when we learn more.
