While controllers hold the power of aim assist, a mouse gives greater precision than the thumbstick. So, how do the greatest controller players aim so accurately? With settings such as these.
Fortnite’s community (especially the competitive) has been debating the advantages and difference of controllers and mice since the launch of the game. Both have their advantages, but most players generally agree that the mouse/keyboard takes the win in more scenarios.
So, what’s make the best controller players stand out from the pack? Well, an important part of any shooter is your sensitivity settings. Let’s learn from the top of pack about how we can all become better controller players. Keep in mind, sensitivities have gotten several major changes in the past few seasons.
Top-Tier Fortnite Controller Sensitivities
While Fortnite PC players are the most visible to the public eye due to massive streamer influence, controller & mobile players make up a greater portion of the overall playerbase. In fact, many of us at FortniteINTEL also play the game from console or PC using Xbox or PS4 controllers.
A FortniteBR subreddit contributor by the name of u/SAV3ICE compiled a large amount of aiming settings from the top controller players. He then inserted this data into an excel sheet and worked out the averages, modes, and highs & lows of each setting.
I took the settings from the best controller players and put them in Excel. Something to think about for controller players from r/FortNiteBR
For mouse players, this information isn’t extremely helpful other than as a way of studying the competition. However, for controller gamers, you’ll want to go through this carefully.
The X or horizontal sensitivities for all players are packed very closely around the 0.7 mark. We might be changing ours to around that value as well quite soon. It’s a nice mix between quick turning and accurate hipfire aim.
The Y or vertical sensitivities are also similarly closely grouped. The data variation is slightly larger than for the X axis, but not notably so. 0.7 stands as the golden standard for professional controller players.
ADS (aiming down sights) settings begin to see significantly larger variations. To us, this makes perfect sense. Some players love to play up-close and prefer fast ADS speeds to compensate. Others prefer to keep their distance which requires greater precision accuracy.
Here’s a video of the difference between 0.35 ADS and 0.55 ADS (0.7 hipfire).
Build & Edit settings might be the most important for Fortnite. Without proper building sensitivities, fights tend to end with us dead. A key note from the Build data is that all of the players play at 1.5x normal speed or more. Additionally, all but a few have set themselves up at 1.9 to 2.0 Build speeds.
Edit sens. shows the biggest low to high differential. KNG Unknown’s 1.052 & Melody’s 1.999 give us a picture of the versatility of multiple playstyles.
Deadzones are an often overlooked piece of the aiming puzzle. Deadzones are the amount of space you can shift the thumbstick in a direction before an input is detected. While you might think to lower this to it’s minimum, a little deadzone helps with filtering out tiny mistaken movements. Nickmercs’ 0.20 deadzone can be considered extremely high when compared with other pros.
What sensitivities do you play at and do you think you’ll change them up to reflect professional players? We’ll certainly be thinking about our own choices as we play tonight. Remember, there’s always room to improve, no matter how good you are at Fortnite.

Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ends and Season 2 starts. The season is off to a wild start, and it’s only going to get crazier.
Fortnite Chapter 3 just started, and it’s going to be a long one. Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ends and Season 2 starts.
Fortnite Chapter 2 ended with The Island flipping over revealing an entirely new map. This marked the start of Fortnite Chapter 3 which also took players back to Season 1.
With a new Chapter, there is plenty for players to discover. On top of a new map there are new weapons, mechanics, and more. This also means that Chapter 3 Season 1 is going to be a long one.
Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.
When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 End?
Fortnite Season 1 will end on March 22, 2022. This means the first season of the new chapter will last for more than 100 days.
There is a chance that Chapter 3 Season 1 could end on March 19 as an in-game timer indicates this as the season’s end date. Regardless, this season is going to be a long one.
When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Start?
New Fortnite seasons usually start within 24 hours after the previous one ends. Players can expect Chapter 3 Season 2 to start on March 23.
That being said, there’s always a chance that Season 2 gets delayed. A series of delays happened at the start of Chapter 2 which caused Season 1 to stretch far beyond its original end date.
Is There a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 Live Event?
As of now, we don’t know. We likely won’t have this information until the final weeks of Season 1.
However, we will keep this article updated as more information is provided.
What Season is Fortnite on?
Fortnite is currently in Chapter 3 Season 1. This is the first season of the third chapter which started after Chapter 2 Season 8. While most players refer to this season as “Season 1”, it’s technically Season 19.

For now, that’s everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1. This chapter will likely span the next year or so and will be filled with exciting events.
