Unlike most of the multiplayer games out there, Fortnite offers crossplay. For those who don’t know, this feature allows players to play with those who are on different platforms. If you own a PC, then you will be able to play Fortnite with someone who plays on a console. This is something that has helped Epic Games with increasing the player base of their game. However, there is something wrong about the controller.
Fortnite Community Conflicts
Console players, and even some players on PC, use a controller to play Fortnite. Since the game was released, there has been a constant debate about mouse and keyboard versus controllers. Some players have claimed that it is okay for PC players to play against console players, while others are against it. This is mainly because the controller players get an advantage over keyboard and mouse players. And now, even Tyler “Ninja” Blevins has decided to speak against it.
Ninja Talks About Aim Assist
Ninja is easily one of the biggest streamers in the world. Although he was the most popular streamer on Twitch, he still left it to join another streaming platform, Mixer. Ninja is widely known for streaming Fortnite daily on his channel and is even considered as one of the best players in the game. Recently, the latter decided to try out the controller on the PC, and his opinion about it wasn’t good.
In a tweet posted on April 3, Ninja claimed that he played Fortnite on PC with a controller for two days. He even added that he has competed in several games at a competing level by using both mouse and keyboard and controllers. However, the Fortnite pro realized that the aim assist benefits the controller players a lot in Fortnite as it works just like aimbot. For those who don’t know, aimbot is a cheating software used by hackers to land every bullet on their target. Ninja thinks that the controller aim assist works in a similar way.
Ninja isn’t the only streamer who isn’t happy with the aim assist. Recently, Bugha also talked about how bad the aim assist is and what Epic Games can do to improve it. He presented two options in his tweet. The first one included making the recoil on mouse and keyboard the same as the controller, removing scroll wheel reset while lowering aim assist strength on the controller. The second option included the same things except for keeping the scroll wheel reset and adding one button reset to the controller.
