Figuring Out the Controls

With no buttons or keyboards, Fortnite on Mobile is played through buttons directly on the HUD/Screen. Controls are separated between Build Mode and Control Mode!

Suggested Sensitivity Breakdown

Fortnite Suggested Sensitivity Settings

Setting Input

Suggested Sensitivity Settings
Touch Sensitivity0.60
Touch Targeting Sensitivity0.80
Touch Scope Sensitivity0.60
Vertical Sensitivity Multiplier1.00

With a lower Touch Scope Sensitivity, it makes aiming through scopes without sacrificing the overall aim speed. The higher Touch Sensitivity also makes using the controls a bit more effortless.

Lower Sensitivity is Recommended for Mobile

Having lower sensitivity generally makes it easier to aim, but at the cost of making building harder. On the other hand, higher sensitivity makes building easier, but aiming harder. Check which one works for you best!

Recommended HUD Layout

Add additional buttons to your screen as hotkeys to buildings. This will act as a shortcut to building structures without having to toggle build mode and choosing the specific structure!

Auto-Shoot will automatically fire your weapon as soon as your crosshair lands on an enemy. This is the recommended shooting option because it makes shooting and combat easier!

Tap Anywhere to Shoot

Tap anywhere on the screen to use your weapon. Use double-tap and hold to fire continuously for weapons that allow for continuous fire.

Dedicated Button

With the dedicated button, your weapon will continue to fire as long as you are pressing it. You can drag your finger while holding this button to track enemies while still shooting.

Custom Shooting Option

There's an option to use more than one shooting option in Mobile. We recommend having the Auto-Shoot and Dedicated Button together! This will allow you to control your shots and have the auto-shoot in tricky situations.

How to Select Shooting Options

How to Select Shooting Options
