Are you trying to find the best controller settings for Fortnite? Take a look at what some of the top pros are using.

Choosing the best controller settings for your playstyle can be difficult. It’s tough to tell which professional player or content creator to copy for your base settings, and where to go up or down from there.

Those who are switching off of the ‘Basic’ Fortnite settings for the first time might get dizzy with the number of options. Multipliers, boosts, ADS sensitivity, Linear vs. Exponential – it can be tough to tell what to use. Pro player settings might not be the best for you, but they’re a place to start.

The guys over at FortSettings.com took a look at the settings that some of the top controller players in the world use, including people like WavyJacob, UnknownxArmy, Aydan, Crr, and more.

Those who are just getting started should note that Boost settings are almost always at 0. I have never seen a pro use boost settings, so bring those all the way down. That will make things a bit easier on you as you go through these settings.

With the exception of Crr and his incredibly high sensitivity, most of the pros have their base X and Y sensitivities in the 40’s. People like Innocents and WavyJacob are on the lower end while Kamo and Unknown are a bit higher.

ADS sensitivity is in the teens across the board – except for WavyJacob who has an inexplicably high Y sensitivity in base and ADS.

Dead zones sit around 10% across all pros as well. 8-10% seems to be the norm for Fortnite players. A bit of stick drift can actually help you in those close-range fights – activating your aim assist.

The most interesting piece of this might be the input curve. Most pros use Linear, but three of the biggest Legacy players are now using Exponential: Crr, UnknownxArmy, and WavyJacob. This one is a personal decision, but Linear is more popular for controller pros.

Controllers are also a personal choice, but here’s a look at what most of the Fortnite pros are using.

The Elite controller (series 1) is surprisingly popular, as is the Dualshock 4. These could be the most popular because SCUF is split between the Infinity 4PS Pro and the Impact. I’ve never tried either of these, so you’ll have to decide for yourself.

Again, you’ll need to find the best settings and sensitivity for your own playstyle. It won’t hurt to start low and ramp things up as you get used to your new settings. Don’t try to go too high at once or you may get discouraged.

Hopefully, this information helped get you out of the Basic Fortnite controls and into the Advanced section, where the sky’s the limit.

How to visit different Witch Shacks for Forntitemares Challenge

Here are all of the Witch Shack locations for the Fortnitemares 2020 challenges.

We’re a week into the Fortnitemares 2020 event and the challenges are still rolling along. We have another week to finish these challenges before the event is over, but that’s plenty of time to unlock all of the new cosmetics.

Today, October 27, the final challenges of the event unlocked for players to complete. One of these challenges requires you to visit three different Witch Shacks, scattered around the map. These also provide players with the Witch Brooms you’ll need for an earlier challenge.

The reward for completing this particular challenge is a pickaxe, so it’s worth your time – especially if you know where to go.

By our count, there are seven Witch Shacks on the Fortnite map – each in a different region. You’ll find one North of Doom’s Domain, Southeast of Steamy Stacks, on the western coast of Sweaty Sands, just north of Salty Springs, off the coast of Catty Corner, and South of Slurpy Swamp.

If you want to do this challenge as quickly as possible, we suggest jumping into a game of Team Rumble and visiting the three shacks on the western portion of the map. This shouldn’t be too difficult with Glider Re-Deploy.

Here’s a map of all of the Witch Shack locations for your reference.

The rest of the Fortnitemares challenges should be straightforward, but most of them won’t be possible in Team Rumble. You’re going to need to fight for Midas at The Ruins to Eliminate him – a tall task while fighting players, Shadows, and henchmen. Good Luck!

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenge guide

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 is here. These are all of the challenges you need to complete.

Published

Fortnite Season 4 is winding down, with the 10th week of challenges about to go live. You’ll have a lot on your plate, this week, when you combine all of the weekly challenges with the final week of Fortnitemares 2020.

The challenges for Season 4 Week 10 are relatively easy. As usual, we’ll be collecting materials, eliminating players, and driving from point A to point B – this time in a boat. Here are all of the Season 4 Week 10 Fortnite challenges:

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

We’re going to be getting into some road rage this week while we hit opponents with a car. This one is going to be fun. you have the best chance of completing this one by landing at Stark Industries, hopping into a car, and slamming into the people who land with you.

At first glance, we weren’t sure where Upstate New York or Heart Lake was. As it turns out, these two places are one and the same. Upstate New York is the massive chunk of land that’s home to Stark Industries. Heart Lake is the lake in the center of it.

Now that you know where to go for the Upstate New York and Heart Lake challenges, the rest of these should be as easy as playing a few challenge-focused games.

If you don’t already know, Sentinel Graveyard refers to the wide-open space in the hills, south of The Authority (The Ruins, right now). This isn’t usually a hotbed of activity, but it will probably see more action for the first few days after the challenges come out.

Hopefully, these challenges will bring you closer to unlocking all of the Season 4 foil skins, which might be the best-looking “enlightened” skins we’ve seen. Good luck!

Epic Games teaser points to future Fortnite X G.I. Joe crossover

Epic Games Creative Director, Donald Mustard, has hinted at a future Fortnite X G.I. Joe crossover.

Published

Fortnite crossovers have taken on a new life in 2020. We’re past the point of one-off crossovers and are experiencing a world that’s now permanently intertwined with the Marvel Universe. What Epic have done with Fortnite is nothing short of impressive.

Donald Mustard, the Epic Games Creative Director and one of the primary minds behind the clash of Marvel and Fortnite, has appeared on multiple platforms, lately, including a Zoom call stream with Geoff Keighley of The Game Awards.

Their conversation didn’t give too much away about the future of Fortnite, but the background of Mustard’s side of the call, apparently, did. After the call ended, Donald Mustard tweeted that there were “clues to future stuff I’ve hidden into the background of my ‘wfh’ space.”

Fortnite fans heard this news and sprung into action, digging through the discussion frame-by-frame. One of the first clues found was the Snake Eyes action figure from G.I. Joe.

Snake Eyes is one of the most popular characters from the G.I. Joe franchise, and he could be the only character from that universe that we see in the game. On the other hand, it could be a red herring and distracting us from a subtler clue that has yet to be discovered.

This was, likely, not the only spoiler that was included in Donald Mustard’s background – it’s just the only one that’s been found, so far. Redditors are still sifting through the interview to see if they can find anything else.

A G.I. Joe crossover would make sense in the future, but probably not in the middle of a Marvel-themed season. We saw the Ghostbusters come to the game this part week, but those fit the Halloween theme. G.I. Joe and Snake Eyes will probably wait for Season 5.
