Fortnite Mouse and Keyboard

Whether you’re brand new to playing Fortnite on keyboard and mouse or are looking for a change, here are the best settings and keybinds to maximize your comfort and reaction time when moving, fighting, and building.

Fighting in Fortnite is a lot more complex than just aiming and shooting. You’ll have to build, edit, and hit shots to win fights. The key to having the best keybinds is making everything feel natural and accessible.

By looking at several high-profile Fortnite players, we’ve put together keybinds that shouldn’t take you too long to get to grips with. With early access to new skins being awarded through in-game tournaments, you want to be playing Fortnite at your best.

Feel free to adjust them to be more comfortable for you, though. We should also note that when aiming with a mouse, sensitivity and DPI settings are 100% down to personal preference, so just use whatever works for you.

Best movement keybinds for Fortnite

These keybinds are what you’ll find in most shooters on PC, so there’s no reason to deviate from the norm.

  • Move Forward: W
  • Move Left: A
  • Move Backward: S
  • Move Right: D
  • Jump: Space Bar
  • Crouch: Left CTRL
  • Open Map: M

Best movement settings for Fortnite

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

Having Auto Open Doors enabled will be a massive help if you accidentally edit a door, as you’ll go straight through it without slowing down.

Best Building keybinds for Fortnite

You’ll need to be able to build fast to keep up with other players in Fortnite, so we’ve put together keybinds that will keep everything at your fingertips.

Building is spread out between the keyboard and the mouse so that one hand isn’t having to do everything, making building easier and faster.

Players building in Fortnite

Here are the best building keybinds for Fortnite:

  • Crouch While Building: Left Shift
  • Wall: Q
  • Floor: Mouse 4
  • Stairs: E
  • Roof: Mouse 5
  • Trap: T
  • Place Building: Left Mouse Button
  • Repair/Upgrade: H
  • Rotate Building: R
  • Change Building Material: Right Mouse Button
  • Building Edit: F and Mouse Wheel Up
  • Crouch While Editing: Left Shift
  • Select Building Edit: Left Mouse Button
  • Reset Building Edit: Mouse Wheel Up

To quickly reset an edit to protect yourself from incoming fire, you should bind both the ‘Reset Building Edit’ and the secondary ‘Building Edit’ to Mouse Wheel Up. This seamlessly resets and confirms the edit in one motion, vastly increasing your editing speed. This tactic is commonly known as “scroll wheel reset.”

Best building settings for Fortnite

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

Best combat keybinds for Fortnite

You want all of your weapons to be accessible without having to move your hand.

While building and fighting, having your weapons on the number keys makes the transition between building and pulling out a weapon quick and easy.

Here are the best keybinds and settings for fighting in Fortnite:

  • Fire: Left Mouse Button
  • Target: Right Mouse Button
  • Reload: R
  • Use: Mouse Wheel Down and X
  • Harvesting Tool: 1
  • Weapon Slot 1: 2
  • Weapon Slot 2: 3
  • Weapon Slot 3: 4
  • Weapon Slot 4: 5
  • Weapon Slot 5: 6
  • Toggle Inventory: Tab
  • Ping / Place Marker: Left Alt

You want to have your inventory button as Tab. If you get attacked while your hand is away from your movement keys, the split second it takes to move back could be the difference between life and death.

Best combat settings for Fortnite

Fortnite Bloodsport Skin
  • Hold To Swap Pickup: On
  • Toggle Targeting: Off
  • Mark Danger When Targeting: On
  • Auto Pick Up Weapons: On
  • Preferred Item Slots: On
    • Loadout Slot 1: Assault Rifle
    • Loadout Slot 2: Shotgun
    • Loadout Slot 3: SMG
    • Loadout Slot 4: Consumable Item
    • Loadout Slot 5: Consumable Item

By enabling Hold to Swap Pickup, you can easily swap out your current weapon for one on the ground, giving you much more control over your inventory. By binding Use to both Scroll Wheel and X, you can pick up items normally with the Scroll Wheel, then swap out a specific item with X when you need to.

Also, using the Preferred Item Slot system makes switching weapons with muscle memory much easier. With this enabled, picking up a weapon will assign it to its assigned categories slot. So, when you’re scrambling around in the early game to get what you can, your weapons will always be where you want them to be.


These keybinds and settings keep everything at your fingertips, maximizing your comfort reaction time while build-fighting in Fortnite. If you also play in a controller, it’s well worth using the best controller settings too.

How to get Fortnite’s new Pizza Party: Locations & what it does

Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite’s Pizza Party item, including where to find it and what it does.

You can use Fortnite’s new Pizza Party item to share pizza slices with your teammates. Here’s where you can find Pizza Party and how you can use it in Fortnite Chapter 3.

There is a ton of fun to be had in Fortnite Chapter 3, whether by finding Klombo dinosaurs around the island or unlocking skins like the Hawkeye outfits. Now, you can also collect pizza in the game.

The Pizza Party item is another new addition that greatly benefits your entire squad. You’ll also need to know where to find it for a Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 Quest that requires you to ‘take pizza slices.’

Here’s everything you need to know about Pizza Party in Fortnite.

Where to find a Pizza Party in Fortnite

Tomatohead location on Fortnite map

You can purchase the new Pizza Party item from the NPC Tomatohead at the Pizza Pit restaurant. You can find this location at the Tilted Towers POI which has returned to Fortnite Island.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Head to the Pizza Pit restaurant
  2. Interact with Tomatohead to speak with him
  3. Select the Pizza Party item and purchase it
  4. Pizza Party will be added to your inventory

Purchasing the Pizza Party item will cost you 50 Gold Bars. If you don’t have this amount saved up already then you can check out our detailed guide on how to earn Gold Bars in Fortnite.

Alternatively, you can also collect a Pizza Party from Chests and Supply Drops or by destroying Loot Llamas. While this doesn’t guarantee that you’ll find the item right away, it’s certainly the cheaper option.

What does a Pizza Party do in Fortnite

Pizza Party in Fortnite

Fortnite’s Pizza Party item recovers your Health and Shield. You simply need to approach it and press the ‘consume’ button to use it. You can also save it in your inventory by pressing ‘take’ instead.

While pizza slices can restore 100 Health, they will only recover up to 50 Shield. So, if you’ve already recovered your Shield, you may want to leave some slices behind for your teammates to use.

One Chapter 3 Quest tasks you with taking a pizza slice from a Pizza Party. You can get this done by simply aiming and throwing a Pizza Party down to the ground similar to how you would toss a grenade.

You can also feed pizza slices to a Klombos dinosaur by throwing a Pizza Party near one of them. While Klomberries are their favorite food, they won’t mind eating the slices and leaving behind loot for you to collect.

That covers everything you need to know about Fortnite’s new Pizza Party item. It can greatly help your entire squad when your Health and Shields are low, so it’s worth going out to find the item.

Epic Games rolled out another Fortnite update on January 25 to fix a problem with the game’s creative mode, and here is the full list of the 3.44 update patch notes.

Fortnite Chapter 3 is well underway, and there is a ton of fun content to enjoy such as the Klombo Dinosaurs and Hawkeye outfits. However, there are also a few issues that the devs are attempting to fix.

Epic Games rolled out a new update on January 25. The latest patch went live across PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. We have the Fortnite 3.44 update patch notes detailing the new changes.

Fortnite updates such as the recent 19.10 patch tend to bring a wide variety of bug fixes and changes to the game. However, the 3.44 patch makes a relatively minor change to the battle royale title.

The latest update only has a single patch note as it focuses on fixing one issue within the game’s Creative Mode. While most players won’t notice the difference, the fix is still greatly appreciated.

Support-A-Creator UI in Fortnite

There aren’t a lot of exciting changes in the 3.44 update patch as compared to the 19.10 update that brought back the fan-favorite Tilted Towers. However, Epic Games did fix one problem:

  • Fixed the issue with the Support-A-Creator UI missing from the pre-game lobby of some Creative islands.

The Support-A-Creator UI was missing from pre-game lobbies on a few Creative Islands. Now, the latest update has fixed this issue and players will be able to support their favorite content creators again.

This fix has gone live on PlayStation and Xbox consoles, as well as PC, and Android. The developers reassured players that they’ll inform them when the update arrives on the Nintendo Switch version.

Hopefully, we’ll see a major update patch released in the new future. It could bring a plethora of exciting new content to the battle royale, including the highly-anticipated Green Goblin outfit and the return of lightsabers.

New Fortnite leak claims lightsabers could return in Star Wars Obi-Wan crossover

Some new Fortnite leaks have revealed that lightsabers might be returning as part of a Star Wars Obi-Wan crossover.

Some new Fortnite leaks suggest that Epic Games are planning to bring lightsabers back to the battle royale as part of a new Star Wars Obi-Wan crossover.

Fortnite has become known for its major collaborations with other popular franchises. Epic Games have brought a ton of crossover content from the Star Wars universe to the battle royale.

The Mandalorian headlined the Season 5 Battle Pass, and Boba Fett is currently an unlockable skin. Now, some leaks suggest that Epic Games are bringing back lightsabers as part of a Star Wars Obi-Wan collaboration.

Rey and Red Stormtrooper using lightsabers in Fortnite

According to notable Fortnite leaker ‘FNAssist,’ Epic Games re-added Star Wars lightsaber files in the v19.10 update. This means that they could be planning to bring them back to the game in the near future.

Lightsabers are some of the most iconic weapons in cinema history, and they were available as Mythic melee weapons during Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2. There were four differently-colored versions of them in the game.

Now, players are speculating that the weapon might be included in a collaboration with the upcoming ‘Obi-Wan’ Disney+ Star Wars series. We might also see the titular character arrive as a new skin.

The leaks state that the 19.10 update added lightsaber animations along with some melee combat mechanics, gameplay abilities, and VFX. This could mean that the weapon will make its return in the game.

Alternatively, they could be working on a new melee weapon and are basing it off the animation and abilities of the lightsaber. However, this information has yet to be verified by the developers themselves.

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, so take them with a grain of salt until Epic Games officially announce something. We’ll keep checking for updates regarding this.
