How to get Fortnite’s new double-movement

You can try out double-movement in Fortnite with a mouse and keyboard, thanks to some third-party software that hasn’t been banned.

Double movement in Fortnite

Epic Games have gotten rid of the double-movement keybinds for Fortnite, but you can still make use of a third-party software to achieve the same function in the game.

One major advantage to playing Fortnite with a controller is that the joystick makes it much easier for you to strafe in one direction while looking elsewhere. Playing with a keyboard and mouse restricts your movement to four directions; front, back, left, or right.

This limitation can be frustrating, as it keeps you from being able to full-sprint while minding your surroundings. A few players used “double movement” keybinds to get around this until Epic Games removed them.

As the name implies, these would allow you to bind one of your movement inputs to two keys, so that you could achieve “controller movement.” Epic Games then banned this practice in-game by limiting movement input mapping to a single key.

However, Fortnite streamer BenjyFishy revealed to his followers that he used ReWASD and Keys2xInput to get around this issue, as Epic can’t ban them. He made sure to check with devs before adding it to his gameplay.

This implies that he got permission to use it, and you can also take advantage of it to get double movement when playing with a mouse and keyboard.

You can get a free trial of ReWASD, but will then have to pay for it each month after the trial ends. However, Keys2xInput is completely free, and will likely be the first choice for anyone who wants to try double-movement for the first time.

YouTuber itsJerian made an insightful video tutorial on how to set up these two programs, so you can check that one out for details about getting them to work.

While using third-party software for double-movement can seem tricky, it’s not as messy as it sounds. These programs simply emulate an ability that controller players already have, so that you can use it on your mouse and keyboard.

So far, Epic Games haven’t chimed in on this matter, and we don’t know for sure whether or not they plan to take action against this, but things look fine at the moment.

Players like BenjyFishy have contacts at Epic, so it’s likely that they were given the green light to use these programs, and you can try them out too.

Apex Legends devs announce commitment to fixing major server issues

The issue of server and net code problems has consistently caused problems for Apex Legends. However, a new dev blog is on the way.

apex legends net code server issues

Apex Legends has had ongoing problems with server and net code issues. However, it does seem that they are trying their best to communicate with the community and plan improvements.

Over the last two years, Apex Legends players have experienced severe server and net code issues that many have complained about since release.

Of course, these issues are extremely complicated and won’t be fixed overnight. However, more communication between the developers and the community could bring light and positivity to the manner, allowing a better understanding of the ongoing issues.

Apex Legends server locations

Apex Legends director of communications, Ryan K. Rigney (@RKRigney on Twitter), revealed that he had been working with the Apex engineers to create a new developer blog concerning, “servers, net code, and tickrate.”

We have seen similar dev blog posts in the past concerning patch notes, future updates, and the most recent video with Jason McCord concerning Apex Legends hackers and cheaters.

This new dev blog is said to be coming out in two weeks and will attempt to acknowledge and explain the “biggest issues” concerning servers, net code, and tick rate, as well as “exploring recent/upcoming improvements.”

Ryan Rigney says he is expecting a mixed reaction, mainly because he knows players want overnight fixes for all Apex Legends server issues – which aren’t possible. The dev blog won’t promise “revolutionary changes immediately,” but it will allow better insight and communication with the community.

Pro Apex Legends player, NRG Rogue, responded to his tweets, essentially stating that it will not satisfy the community of the “14-24-year-old Apex Legends market.”

Just like Rogue, who says he is not “too techy” in understanding such issues, the majority of the community are likely to be similar. The information offered may be overlooked, or not fully understood.

Either way, more communication between the devs and engineers for Apex Legends can hardly be negative, so we look forward to seeing the information provided.

Apex Legends leak reveals EPG from Titanfall 2

Apex Legends leak reveals Respawn’s plans to add another Titanfall weapon into the game, potentially making its arrival next season.

Most of Apex Legends weapons are taken directly from the Titanfall universe and it seems like another one may be on its way.

This season saw Apex Legends add its sixth new weapon into the game called the 30-30 Repeater. Since then, there has been lots of speculation on which weapon we could be seeing next.

The most recent leaked weapons said to be introduced into the game by reliable data miner @Biast12 include the Compound Bow, the Dragon LMG, and the EPG from Titanfall.

The EPG stands for ‘Energy Propelled Grenade’, a futuristic grenade launcher that explodes on hit, causing splash damage.

In Titanfall 2, it fired fairly slowly but dealt quite a lot of damage. The weapon also didn’t have much bullet drop, as you’d usually see with a grenade launcher, allowing you to hit targets from far without adjusting your aim too much.

The weapon one-hit Pilots in Titanfall 2, dealing massive amounts of damage and even being useful against weaker Titans. Although it’s unlikely to be the same in Apex Legends, it could potentially deal supreme amounts of damage.

This is not the first time we have heard about the EPG potentially coming to Apex Legends, as it was teased during a demo for Season 5’s Lost Treasures event.

The EPG would be the first explosive weapon in Apex Legends, making it an obvious choice for the developers to introduce it.

The latest leak also included a picture of the EPG’s potential legendary skin names.

The EPG in Apex Legends will be the second version of the weapon from Titanfall. It will likely receive an upgraded name change that we have also seen for other Titanfall weapons in Apex like the R-97, which was of course renamed the R-99.

For continued news on Apex Legends stay tuned on Charlie Intel and the @TitanfallBlog over on twitter.
