Fortnite superstar Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf has explained how Epic Games can fix the battle royale’s aim assist issues by laying out two ideas for possible changes. 

As Fortnite has cross-platform play and optional inputs, controller users can take on keyboard and mouse players, and there have been endless debates about what Epic Games can do to balance aim assist versus normal aiming. 

The developers of the battle royale game made a pretty big change on March 13, removing the legacy aim assist option from the game’s settings. However, some players like Bugha are still hoping that they go even further and make another balancing change to level the playing field.

Bugha still stands as one of the top Fortnite pros in the competitive scene.

The Fortnite World Cup solo champion laid out his two ideas for changes via Twitter on April 2, showing how he’d change things for both controller players and keyboard and mouse users. 

“Option one, Mouse and Keyboard: Same recoil as controller. Remove Scroll wheel reset. Controller – Lower aim assist strength,” Bugha tweeted as his first idea.

The Sentinels star followed that up with another option, suggesting that keyboard and mouse players could have the same recoil as a controller while retaining the scroll wheel reset. As for controller users, they would have lower aim assist strength but have a one-button reset option like the scroll wheel.

Some players quickly jumped on board with the World Cup winner’s ideas, suggesting that the better of Bugha’s two was the second option. 

Yet, others pointed out that keyboard and mouse users would benefit from either option much more than controller users.

While professional stars like Bugha can chime in with their own ideas, the final say on any changes comes from Epic and it is difficult to say as to whether or not they have anything in the works. 

It still remains to be seen as to whether or not they will address the aim assist balance in the near future.


How to complete Quests in Fortnite Season 5: Challenges & rewards

With Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5, challenges are seemingly no more, at least in the form that they’ve taken for a while. Now, players are able to complete quests, which operate in a similar way but are a bit different nonetheless. Here’s what you need to know about them.

For a while now, players in Fortnite have been completing challenges in order to help level up their battle pass. These challenges tasked players with completing certain objectives around the map and, in return, they are given rewards, mostly XP. It ended up being one of the main ways players could grind up their battle pass tiers and overall level.

Now, with the start of Season 5 in Chapter 2, challenges are gone, at least in the form they once took. Now, players will have to complete Quests in order to level up their battle pass. But how do you complete them and what are the actual requirements? Here’s what you need to know.

What are Quests in Fortnite Season 5?

Jumping into Fortnite Season 5, one might be a bit confused as to what Quests are and why they’ve replaced challenges. While don’t know for sure why exactly they’ve taken the place of the latter, you can rest assured that they operate almost identically to the old format.

In Fortnite’s main menu, you should see a button to press on the left side labeled Quests. Clicking it will bring up the map and all your Quests, similar to how it’s been in previous seasons. That being said, these new “challenges” are a bit more narrative-focused, having quotes alongside them.

Chapter 2 Season 5 Quests list

Epic Games
Fortnite Quests are similar to challenges from previous seasons.

Quests are split up into different rarities. Everyone seems to have the two same Legendary Quests, alongside some rare and uncommon quests that are different from player to player. Once a quest is done, a new one pops up in its place, which presumably will keep happening until you’ve gone through every single challenge.

That being said, for the two Quests that everyone does have, here’s what you need to complete:

  • Mandalorian Bounties: Complete Bounties
  • Legendary Quests 1: Four Stages
    • Stage 1: Shotgun Eliminations
    • Stage 2: Assault Rifle Damage
    • Stage 3: Sniper Rifle Elimination from 150m
    • Stage 4: Deal Explosive damage to structures
  • Legendary Quests 2: Three Stages
    • Stage 1: Discover Named Locations
    • Stage 2: Talk to a character
    • Stage 3: Collect bars

New Quests should be available every week as the season goes on, much like the challenges of old. We’ll be updating this piece with new objectives as they become available.

All in all, it seems like Quests are a more refined version of challenges; gone is the long list of tasks and now we have a more organized experience. Here’s hoping that Epic continues with this style in the future.
