Fortnite Best Controller Settings: PlayStation, Xbox

While many believe using a keyboard and mouse is the best way to play Fortnite, or any online shooter, it's no secret that controllers are often the most comfortable (and preferred) way to play the game. While accuracy and speed might not be able to contend with keyboard and mouse, there are plenty of settings and features that aim to level the playing field.

For one, controller players can make use of a mild aim assist. It won't guarantee you any direct hits or headshots, but it will make things easier. You can also adjust the strength and effect of aim assist in the in-game settings, but it isn't the only setting that you should be tweaking to adjust your gameplay. Below, we'll go over what we think are the best controller settings to use when playing Fortnite.
