Fortnite Best Mouse Settings
Mouse Sensitivity Shouldn't Be Too High/Too Low
|High Sens||・Won't be able to do the necessary micro adjustments in order to aim successfully|
|Low Sens||・Hinders movement and the ability to quickly disengage from combat/turn into cover.|
Note: Make sure that you can look around quickly and smoothly & that you can also aim precisely at the same time.
ADS Sens Should Be Similar To Your Normal Sens
Your ADS sens is for your medium to long range gunfights, so it makes sense to have this set to something which allows you to aim properly without any jitters.
There is something to be said for having both settings be the same, so that it's easier to develop the muscle memory for quick flicks, building, etc.
Prioritize Consistency Over High Sensitivity
Make sure that you're able to hit your target and minimize the odds of missing an easy shot.
On average the players seem to like a similar Scope eDPI to the ADS eDPI.
Sample Mouse Sensitivity Settings
|Look Sensitivity||0.05 (DPI: 400)|
For Seasoned Players
|Look Sensitivity||.07 (DPI: 400)|
For Advanced/Veteran Players
|Look Sensitivity||.08 (DPI: 400)|
Fortnite Best Keyboard Settings
Experiment With Custom Keybinds For Build Speed
Being able to build quickly and efficiently can give you massive advantage. The default keys for building in Fortnite can be quite awkward to reach.
We recommend experimenting with custom keybinds that you will be better & comfortable with.
Sample Custom Keybind:
|Building Edit||Mouse4 / V / MW Up|
Make Sure To Place Commands On Easy-To-Reach Keybinds
The keybinds are arranged so that they can be easily be accessible with the left hand.
Sample Keybinds For Important Commands:
|Weapon slot 1||1|
|Weapon slot 2||2|
|Weapon slot 3||3|
|Weapon slot 4||4|
|Ability slot 1||5|
|Ability slot 2||6|

Performance Over Graphics
Lowering down the graphics would boost the game's input & performance.
We would recommend trying out Performance Mode first, as it's designed by Epic to be the 'competitive setting' to play the game.
High FPS Gives You A Big Advantage
It’s incredibly important to get enough FPS in order to smoothly follow all of the onscreen action.
You’ll get a much smoother image if you couple high framerates with a high refresh rate monitor, and you’ll have less input lag.
