The MAJOR Controller Issues Fortnite MUST FIX NOW! (Fortnite PS4 + Xbox)

The MAJOR Controller Issues Fortnite MUST FIX NOW! (Fortnite PS4 + Xbox)


Hey what is going on guys, in this video today
we’re gonna be going over the biggest needs for console/controller Fortnite. As you guys are hopefully aware of, chapter
2 season 2 is right around the corner. I believe I’m going to be uploading this on
the 17th and the new season starts on the 20th so only 3 days away to be exact. And since season 1 of chapter 2 ended up being
about double the length of a regular season, a lot of people are expecting season 2 to
be full of meaningful changes that make the game better. That may be a little bit optimistic but we
can definitely hope that ends up being true. So the point of this video is to talk about
the most important things that Fortnite could implement to improve the experience for console/controller
players. And without further ado, let’s get right into
it. Alright so the first thing on this list is
something that a large percentage of players find annoying but should be very simple to
fix: Making sure that the advanced sensitivity & settings have all the same options that
legacy sensitivity & settings have. And when I say that I’m referring to 2 things
specifically. First off is the option to set a separate
value for scoped sensitivity. One of the biggest positives of the advanced
settings is the option to customize your sensitivity so much more than what’s possible on legacy. However despite all that, if you play on the
new settings you aren’t able to customize your scoped sensitivity at all. So when you use any kind of weapon with a
scope on it like a sniper for example, the speed at which you move around will just be
your regular ADS sensitivity, and for a lot of people that’s a pretty major annoyance. The other option that the legacy settings
have which advanced doesn’t is edit mode aim assist. Now for some players this isn’t a big deal
at all because if you didn’t use it when everybody was forced to play on legacy, you’re obviously
not gonna care that you can’t use it when you switch to advanced. However there are some players that have gotten
so used to edit mode aim assist and like it so much that they won’t switch to the new
settings specifically because of that. At the end of the day edit mode aim assist
is just a helpful little setting that I think makes editing slightly easier, so I don’t
see any reason to not allow players on the new sensitivity and settings to use it. Next up is a super annoying aspect of playing
on controller that I think would be another super easy fix: Give us the ability to use
custom binds to change the button that picks up downed players. At the beginning of chapter 2 Fortnite added
the fun little option to pick up and carry downed teammates or enemies. It’s honestly a really cool feature that is
probably mostly used jokingly, but also has practical use as well such as carry downed
teammates out of the storm or away from a chaotic fight. However for some reason Fortnite decided that
Y/Triangle would be the default button to use this pickup feature. And even more frustrating is the fact that
you can’t change it. The majority of controller players use the
Y/Triangle button primarily to pull out their pickaxe. So there are times where you’ll go to pull
your pickaxe out either to finish off the enemy or break out of a box for example, and
instead the game will pick the enemy up, so if you get pushed it’s basically game over. However it’s even worse for claw players because
for them Y is a very common bind for pulling out your building menu. So they’ll down an enemy out in the open,
press Y with the intention of building a box around them to safely get the finish, and
instead they’ll pick the player up and probably get lasered by one of his teammates since
now you can’t build. So please Fortnite, it’s literally as simple
as giving us the option bind that action to whatever button we want. Next up on our list is something that console
players have been asking for since probably the last 2 years or so, the ability to turn
off shadows. So in theory being able to turn off shadows
on console could have 2 potential benefits. The first is the theory that it would increase
the consistency of FPS that console players get. Obviously you still wouldn’t be able to go
over 60, but some people believe that turning off shadows would give the game less graphical
imaging to render, therefore making leading to less FPS drops. However even though thats just a theory and
there’s a chance it doesn’t actually improve FPS, console players should still be able
to turn off shadows because of the gameplay disadvantage they present. There’s a reason why when given the option
every single competitive PC player chooses to turn them off, it makes certain areas on
the map much darker and it’ll be almost impossible to see enemies who are in those spots. Moving on, at the beginning of chapter 2 Fortnite
gave players an interesting new setting called confirm edit on release. Much like edit mode aim assist players are
kinda split 50/50ish on if it’s better than editing normally, but definitely a cool addition
to the game. So what a lot of people pointed out is that
if Fortnite is gonna give us confirm edit on release, why not go 1 small step further
and also give us reset edit on release. Now even though this would be an option for
all Fortnite players, it would be especially helpful for controller players and here’s
why. Mouse and keyboard players already have scroll
wheel reset which is just as fast if not faster than confirm edit on release would be. So giving controller players reset on release
would do a pretty good job of leveling the playing field when it comes to editing. The next aspect of controller Fortnite that
could be improved is trap placing. A lot of people don’t know this, but there’s
a pretty distinct difference between placing traps with keyboard and mouse vs. placing
them with a controller. On mouse and keyboard placing traps is a 2
click process. A fairly common bind that PC players will
use for traps is T, so they’ll press T to select the trap and then left click to place
to it, very simple and very efficient. However on controller this is instead a 3
click process: you’ll press whatever button pulls out your building menu, then you’ll
press whatever button selects your trap, and finally you’ll press that button again to
place it. And I’m sure some people are gonna be thinking
“ok yeah that’s a little unfair but does 3 clicks vs. 2 clicks really make that big of
a difference?” Well, my response to that would be…absolutely. Without a doubt the most powerful way to use
traps in Fortnite right now is to place them in your 1×1 when an enemy jumps inside of
it. So since that enemy is going to have a clear
point blank range chance to deal damage to you, if your play is to place a trap, time
is obviously of the essence, if it takes anything more than like half a second you’re in big
trouble. So obviously 2 clicks vs. 3 is gonna save
a decent amount of time, and it’s also gonna make you less likely to mess up the placement. There are a bunch of potential ways to improve
trap placement on controller, but I personally believe the simplest solution is allowing
players to select traps without pulling out their building menu. So this would basically work almost the same
exact way as PC. You’d make your trap button something you
don’t already use, let’s just use down on d-pad as an example,,,so pressing that button
will pull out the trap even if your building menu isn’t open, then you’ll press another
button to place it, bam 2 clicks problem solved. And when you press the trap select button,
you could then use right and left on the d-pad to scroll to launch pads, campfires, or whatever
else could potentially be in that slot like normal. The final potential improvement to controller
Fortnite is something I saw online that I think is absolutely genius. So when you pick your aim assist and settings
on controller there’s 3 main options legacy, linear, and exponential. And whichever of these 3 options you pick
controls the type of aim assist you get, the way you build, and the way you edit. This results in a lot of players making hard
choices, for example I personally would love my building and editing to be on linear, but
I just like the aim assist of legacy too much to make the change. So I saw someone online suggest this: Why
not allow controller players to pick a different option for every type of action. So like I suggested that would allow me to
use legacy aim assist while aiming, and then linear for building and editing. My guess is that would be the most popular
combo, but I’m sure there are some people that would do something like linear aim assist
with exponential building and editing. Now I have a feeling there would be a lot
of keyboard and mouse players opposed to controller players getting this option. They’d probably claim something like “oh this
make controller too OP” but really all it would do is give slightly more customization
and control over how we play. So, I hope you guys enjoyed this video and

  1. Can I have my pin today

  2. Only change I care about for season 2 is to PLEASE get pc players OUT OF MY LOBBIES.

  3. They should add reset on release

  4. It would be interesting to see the combined aim assist when shooting. it would be great if the first shot and the aiming moment was like legacy (L2 spam) and the subsequent tracking / lasering as linear. This would reveal the full potential and all the power of firing on the controller.

  5. They should give us aim assist/ L2 spam on linear/ exponential

  6. We should have the ability to disable stair rotations and also to disable walking in Fortnite . Basically automatic sprinting all the time

  7. I would like a separate draw button!!! It drives me crazy that when I try to pull my gun out in the middle of a fight and my pick axe will come out!!! Then I’m there getting shot in the face!!! Instead of doing the shooting.

  8. The sad way he died at the end😭😂

  9. as i know im claw player and i hate the glitch which make u cant build and everything else in this video is fixable im controller on pc

  10. You know what I don't understand? How come your lobbies have so much bots in it? You have a super k.d. but atleast 80% of your lobbies is straight up garbage. Not hating tho. Because you stick up for us console players. But I would love some of these lobbies too😂

  11. Reset on release would be awesome. Trap buttons would be great too. Would most love to see bandages work like syringes in apex, or at least be able to walk while medding up

  12. Console players are a joke to epic

  13. Advanced sensitivities don't need anymore additional options. L2 spamming on PC is going to get aim assist either nerfed or taken away. Which is going to be a huge deal for us console players, who make up the majority of the player base. I'm getting the feeling more and more that you're wanting a "perfect world" for controller on pc. Honestly I don't think you pc players should get the aim assist that console players get, since you're taking advantage of frame rate already compared to console.

  14. You shouldn't be able to choose What aim assist you have at all take out one but leave all the input curves imo take out legacy aim assist since it's so controversial.

  15. I use antimacro on pc to scroll wheel reset and pull out traps by binding d pad items to krys. But there still should be a native way to do it

  16. Also legacy l2 is not where near as good as exponential/ linear. The tracking is soo much better. I can lazer people better on expo than on legacy and l2 just makes your aim not as good.

  17. It's the first time I see you die in the gameplay until I got confused waiting for the victory royal xd.

  18. I think they should just make a separate menu for Traps.
    1. Have a trap bind
    2. Sensitivity multiplier for traps
    3. Button bind menu for traps
    What I mean for number 3 is like the edit bind menu in settings. Where when we enter our trap menu then it will display everything to change binds specifically for traps. I would personally change my Trap Place bind to R2/RT so it’s more efficient.

  19. No No No!!! first thing should be not being forced into cross play! How it used to be SIMPLE FIX. And get rid of sbmm If their the only things that changes I’ll be more than happy.

  20. i need reset on release

  21. Why does a different dude talk in the videos than the guy whose actually playing. The guy Eric 5 doesn’t even admit he’s not Gronky. He just makes everyone believe he’s the same one providing the gameplay. Tired of this shit.

  22. Max has given the order to take over youtube again. Oh yeah yeah

  23. I feel like your the only YouTuber I watch who speaks up for controller playing. Thank you!!! The last couple console videos you've been doing are much appreciated!!!

  24. Worst thing is having to have edit time clear up to 2.0 so it won't automatically edit when you place a build and get your head blasted off your neck trying to figure out wtf is happening!!!!!!!

  25. Just a button that instantly resets a wall if you look at it

  26. Epic needs to make gronky a developer

  27. All of this is bull, the aim assist is already way too strong to the point where it out aims the best pc aimer rn

  28. I watched the whole vid

  29. They must give us a new extra button that can be in edit and reset to become like mouse wheel but with one press

  30. Man u talked in everything that i wanted to say love u man

  31. The Xbox elite controller has an ability to set a button as a shift key allowing allowing you basically to have twice the amount of binds. We should have an option like that in Fortnite. If kbm players can recall any weapon on call then so should we

  32. You hit the nail on the head with the first thing I couldn’t use a sniper at all on advanced so I had to jump back

  33. Allow console to turn off cross platform!! Pin this!

  34. you should do one on how shit the new update has been for ps4 ppl… game is now hard to play . things don't appear when flying in .. you get a lot of blured pictures . its rubbish

  35. Turning off shadows gives you 5-10 frames more per second. It's not a "theory", it's a goddamn fact xD

  36. Video: Light background music

    Gronky: we will discuss major issues

  37. My PS4 controller stoped working on the PS4 only tornment

  38. I want the skin to talk man they look so plain bruh like apex people talk fornite skin just do expressions df how about letting us make our own skin geesh

  39. I think ur asking to much bro. They need to fix the problems with Controller and mouse and keyboard. Not give us more things.

  40. I hope they add al the stuff you said we need to feed back his ideas so epic can add this bro

  41. Actually fortnite made the button to pick up teammates whatever button your pickaxe is cause I’ve changed my toggle pickaxe button several times this season and the pick up button changes as well

  42. I’m sure you’ve been level 100 for the entire season 🤔 how? 😂 you pick up 15-20 kills a game 🤣

  43. Edit mode aim assist !

  44. Does anybody here on controller manage to place a trap in 3 clicks? Takes me about 20 clicks every time 😒

  45. I just want fortnite to improve ping route just like exit lag does

  46. 4:00 i use triangle for jump

  47. Get ready to be let down in the next season

  48. Ameking the same videos bc fortnite has yet to fix there problems

  49. As someone that is a more competitive player on console (ps4 pro) I can say without a doubt being able to turn shadows off would help with fps. I consistently get 55-60 fps on console. I dont think it should just stop at shadows either. We should be allowed to lower our effects, up view distance, and lower textures. Even with everything being on medium it would be nice to be able to decide what we want to prioritize in game even if the fps increase isnt that much.

  50. To pick up downed players, it is whatever your pickaxe button is. Not just Y or Triangle. But great vid like always.

  51. WE NEED RESET ON RELEASE! THANK YOU GRONKY!

  52. Custom button slot binds plzzzzzz

  53. GronKy donkey haha very funny

  54. Epic needs to cap ar ammo at 500 or increase how many mats you get

  55. why do you still play fortnut

  56. Aww no he died this time 🙁

  57. Keyboard and mouse players can also change their dpi which helps them with their sense as well

  58. Let’s goooo gronky

  59. Or they just add all the settings riggers to only make 1 option for settings.

  60. Well if use want all that m&k get aim assist seems like a fair trade

  61. Cross play becomes optional

  62. I can tell a lot of these issues that will not get fixed.

  63. R u a pro player if not u so good grind ur mechanics or show us ur most important mechanics in a video pls u so good

  64. They should be able to remove shadows and boost frames the new mf iphone can support twice our frames💀

  65. SCROLLWHEEL RESET ON CONTROLLER PLEASE ITS GAME OVER AFTER THAT

  66. What ab the issue where you place any build and it’s still in the blue preview mode, happens to me all the time (it’s not the controller) ( I Also have builder pro: Build immediately option turned on).

  67. Would love to have reset on release and the ability to change specific sensitivity

  68. there’s so many problems with console ive been getting a lot of blank hit markers with pumps

  69. What about being able to turbo build traps that would be great bcz I’m sure u can set traps and placing on different binds

  70. I thought this video was about aim assist

  71. There is some kind of weird glitch where it won’t let me place a trap on the ceiling! I button mash and sometimes it works on the one millionth click but most of the time does not! Also the trap idea is an awesome idea dude plllllzzzz epic listen to this! All good points bru

  72. Shadows I want to go

  73. Ik you read you comments, you dont have to respond but PLEASE for the love of god stop saying slash. Its litterally a longer word than or, there are so many better words. It actually makes me cringe everytime. Ik I'm not the only irritated person cause it's a whole thing where people get mad when others say slash. You prob wont listen but it litterally is a LESS efficient way of saying what your trying to say.

  74. i cant play pubs cause pc players just my walls to easy and sometimes shoot trough them and most of the times my walls dont build

  75. Finally, someone big talking about reset on release.. This would be so helpful and bridge the gap.
    Thank you.

  76. Remove the aim assist

  77. Please let Epic see this

  78. If I need to snipe I just switch back to legacy mid game.

  79. Need reset on release immediately

  80. Taking these suggestion changes from Apex? Apex has the options for controler players to change the sense- on different scopes. 1x, 2x, 3x. The 4×10 scope sense- is the same as the 3x if I'm not mistaken. Having a scope sense- for fortnite will change a lot of things for players. Hopefully they listen to the controler community in that game.

  81. What if you could have different senses for different building pieces

  82. Gronky you’re the best console supporting Fortnite YouTuber. Thank you for trying to push for improvements for us 👍

  83. Bro it’s not just triangle it’s any of ur Pickaxe binds

  84. They need to bring bounty back with siphon. I’m so sick of playing BR and the same creative games over and over again.

  85. How do you get into bot lobbies every game

  86. Why do some people on console hold the shotgun in the second slot? Makes no sense

  87. PIN FOR EDIT RESET ON RELEASE!!!

  88. Being a controller player , i wanted all of those but the last one was a bit much ! Being able to have everything separate like aim on legacy with building on linear and stuff . I am not saying its bad , it will be completely amazing to have that for controller players but that will really have a negative impact as the kbm players will either go crazy and/or a lot of them will even consider switching to controller becuase in their eyes aim assist is op

  89. If u want to be able to switch from linear to exponential in the way you described there would be no need for aim assist because as you gave the example “when pc players want to move faster or slower they move their mouse faster or slower” and we do this to aim more precisely therefore the reason we dont have aim assist so if you compare being able to switch from linear while building to exponential while aiming to keyboard and mouse precision in aim what need whatsoever would there be for aim assist? Thats just an unnecessary advantage. I play on controller on ps4 myself, im just being reasonable.

  90. Don’t fix any of these till aim assist gets nerfed

  91. You pick people up when you pull out ur pickaxe ALSO not changeable on MNK and controller not only a controller bug

  92. How to fix fortnite =uninstall it

  93. Why not level the playing field with aim?

  94. I just wanna hit Snipes on linear😢, AMAZING VIDEO BTW, THANKS A LOT BRO, HOPEFULLY EPIC SEES IT!!!

  95. Fortnite gives them aim bot and they want more, smh
