Find out controller settings for some of the world’s best Fortnite players.


Controllers in Fortnite Battle Royale have become a much more viable option since the game came out in 2018. Back in those days, most elite players used a keyboard and mouse to execute flashy plays and successfully build fight opponents. Controller players have experienced a significant resurgence over time, particularly in 2020. Top competitors like Scoped, Wolfiez, Reet, Mero and Deyy emerged as some of the year's best talents on the sticks. It's worth wondering how they manage to achieve such success with a device so familiar to most.

The key to mastering Fortnite as a controller player lies within aim assist and the settings. Finding the perfect sensitivity and button combinations is essential to understanding what suits you the best. Although many top players have similar settings, there are key differences from one to another that could click well with your comfort level.

Claw vs. Standard

If you’re not sure what ‘claw’ means, it’s a specific way that some players grip their controller. FaZe Flea published a helpful video, which will walk you through it. Claw has been around for a long time, but some veterans caution against using it because it can cause hand pain. Standard is the most common grip and paddles are accessible to those with a SCUF or Xbox Elite controller. Now, let’s look at some professional Fortnite player’s controller settings.
