Fortnite Controllers

To help you build fast and shoot straight in Fortnite, we’ve put together the best Xbox and PlayStation controller settings and layout you can use.

As Fortnite is a crossplay game, controller and mouse and keyboard players will constantly be facing off against each other. Although M&K players have much more buttons at their fingertips, and the precision of using their whole arm to aim, controller players have been holding their own in competitive Fortnite.

By using the correct settings on Xbox and PlayStation controllers, you can dominate the competition. Here are the best controller settings for Fortnite.

Best Fortnite controller settings

Mando in Fortnite

Almost everyone has their preference when it comes to Xbox and PlayStation controllers. Some prefer the smaller PS controller as makes the Claw grip easier to use, but others prefer the stick placement of the Xbox controller.

No matter which controller you use, these settings will be perfect for either.

Movement

  • Toggle Sprint: Off
  • Sprint by Default: On
  • Sprint Cancels Reloading: Off
  • Auto-Open Doors: On

Building

  • Reset Build Choice: On
  • Disable Pre-Edit Option: On
  • Turbo Building: On
  • Confirm Edit on Release: On

Input

  • Controller Auto-Run: On
  • Build Immediately (Builder Pro): On
  • Edit Hold Time: 0.115 (lowest setting)
  • Vibration: Off

Sensitivity

For sensitivity, it’s really what you feel most comfortable with. You’ll want to have a relatively low look sensitivity with a higher build and edit sensitivity. This keeps you accurate while allowing for quick building and editing for fights.

Give our settings a try and tweak until you’re comfortable and it suits your playstyle.

  • Build Mode Sensitivity Multiplier: 2.3x
  • Edit Mode Sensitivity Multiplier: 2.3x
  • Use Advanced Options: On

Advanced – Look Sensitivity

  • Look Horizontal Speed: 45%
  • Look Vertical Speed: 45%
  • Turning Horizontal Boost: 0%
  • Turning Boost Ramp Time: 0%
  • Instant Boost When Building: Off

Advanced – Aim Down Sights (ADS) Sensitivity

  • ADS Look Horizontal Speed: 14%
  • ADS Look Vertical Speed: 14%
  • ADS Turning Horizontal Boost: 0%
  • ADS Turning Vertical Boost: 0%
  • ADS Turning Boost Ramp Time: 0.00

Advanced – Sensitivity

  • Look Dampening Time: 0.00
  • Look Input Curve: Linear
  • Aim Assist Strength: 100%

Controller Deadzone

Deadzone is all dependent on your controller. For maximum accuracy and reaction time, want it to be the lowest possible value without getting stick-drift.

Fortnite boats

Jump into a game of Creative, lower your Deadzone down to 0, then slowly build it up until your sticks stop drifting by themselves. We use 10% for the left and 8% for the right, although your controller may require a different setting.

  • Left Stick Deadzone: 0 (then increase as required)
  • Right Stick Deadzone: 0 (then increase as required)

Controller Configuration

For controls, Builder Pro is your best friend. When Fortnite was first released, the default controller options for clunky and awkward. Epic Games have since added loads of accessibility support for controllers and Builder Pro is by far the most intuitive and easy to use.

Start with Builder Pro, and work out the best binds for you.

To make editing quicker and easier, you should bind Edit to L3/Left Stick. This will allow you to quickly make edits on the fly without accidentally editing while trying to build. By enabling Sprint by Default, you won’t have to worry about unbinding Sprint to do this.

If you use a controller on PC, make sure to choose the Generic controller option. For some reason, this option decreases button latency when compared to Xbox or PlayStation controllers.

Weapon/item order

If you watch professional Fortnite controller players, you will notice that they always have their shotgun in their first slot. This is because if you press Pickaxe > Build > Switch Weapon, it always defaults to your 1 slot, no matter which weapon you were holding to start the sequence.

This might sound a bit complicated, but it’s a very common sequence in Fortnite. We just described the input of taking someone’s wall. If you keep your AR in your first slot, as many players do, you’ll need to switch weapons twice to get to your shotgun – costing you precious time.

The new setup will take a bit of getting used to, but it’s as simple as moving your entire inventory to the right, once. You’ll also need to disable Auto-Sort Consumables to the left if you have it enabled.


Give these controller settings a try in Fortnite, and you’ll be building and shooting like the pros in no time.

Fancy View, Rainbow Rentals, and Lockie’s Lighthouse locations in Fortnite

One of the Epic Quests in Week 6 of Fortnite Season 6 requires you to visit Fancy View, Rainbow Rentals, and Lockie’s Lighthouse. We’ll go over each of these locations on the battle royale’s map.

The Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 challenges will grant you the opportunity to earn some extra XP to unlock cool new cosmetics, and progress through the Season 6 Battle Pass.

One of these challenges requires you to visit Fancy View, Rainbow Rentals, and Lockie’s Lighthouse. We’ll help make things a little easier by marking these locations on the map, so that you can complete this Epic Quest.

Where to find Fancy View, Rainbow Rentals, & Lockie’s Lighthouse in Fortnite

The good news is that these landmarks aren’t particularly difficult to find if you know where to look on Fortnite Island. All of these are easily identifiable once you spot them, and two of them are fairly close to each other.

We’ve marked each of these locations on Fortnite’s map below:

fancy view, lockie's lighthouse, rainbow rentals locations in Fortnite

Lockie’s Lighthouse is the easiest of these locations to find. It’s on its own little island in the Northern section of the map, right between Stealthy Stronghold and Craggy Cliffs. You’ll find it extremely difficult to miss.

As the name implies, Fancy View is a nice-looking house by the coast just northwest of Holly Hedges. If you head inside then you’ll find a ton of Rocket League merchandise lying around, so just stick to the road until you get there.

Finally, Rainbow Rentals is on the west coast of the Island and consists of five colorful huts on the beach. You can easily rotate there from Holly Hedges since it’s directly southwest of that area.

Lockie’s Lighthouse

That covers all the locations of the landmarks that you have you have to visit in order to complete the Week 6 challenge. As with other Epic Quests, completing this challenge will award you 24,000 XP.

You can try completing the rest of the Epic Quests as well if you want to progress through the Battle Pass faster. There’s also a Legendary Quest that’s available for a limited time period, so be sure to hop to it.
