Organize Your Weapon / Item Order Efficiently

Loadout Slot 1Shotgun
Loadout Slot 2SMG
Loadout Slot 3Consumable Item
Loadout Slot 4Consumable Item
Loadout Slot 5Assault Rifle

If you press Pickaxe > Build > Switch Weapon, it always defaults to your 1 slot, no matter which weapon you were holding to start the sequence.

If you keep your AR in your first slot, you’ll need to switch weapons twice to get to your shotgun which will cost you precious time.

Decrease Deadzone For Better Aim

Deadzone is dependent on your controller.

For maximum accuracy and reaction time, you want it to be the lowest possible value without getting stick-drift.

Left Stick Deadzone0 (increase if there's stick-drift)
Right Stick Deadzone0 (increase if there's stick-drift)

Builder Pro Is Your Best Friend

Builder Pro is by far the most intuitive and easy to use.

To make editing quicker and easier, you should bind Edit to L3/Left Stick. This will allow you to quickly make edits without accidentally editing while trying to build.

Fortnite Controller Presets

There are 4 distinct controller presets in Fortnite

Old School Preset

The default option for controller players.

Note: This preset can be too slow and awkward to use

Quick Builder Preset

Quick Builder works alright, but Builder Pro is just the better option.

Combat Pro Preset

A great preset for aggressive and frag-minded players.

This preset can be difficult to use when building.

Builder Pro Preset

Pretty much the pick for Fortnite controller players

Builder Pro is the most popular and best controller preset there is.

Fortnite Best Settings For Switch

Set Look Sensitivity To Normal

Look Sensitivity for both standard and ADS options set to 6 (Normal) eliminates the clunky feeling that the stock settings put in place.

Look Sensitivity6
ADS Sensitivity6
Build Mode Sensitivity Multiplier1.5

Building Sensitivity Higher Than Your Aiming Sensitivity

This will allow the players to quickly build in multiple directions.

Turn Off Motion Sensitivity For Better Control

This is going to be difficult for many players and often will cause more harm than good.

We would suggest disabling them and use the right joystick to adjust your view.

Motion Sensitivity Targeting1%
Motion Sensitivity Not Targeting1%
Motion Sensitivity Scoped1%
Motion Sensitivity Harvesting Tool1%

Combat Bro Is Your Best Friend

The best controller scheme to use on Switch has been the Combat Bro.

This controller layout suits the joycon controllers the best.
