Just in time for Fortnite Season 2, World Cup champ Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf revealed his updated keybinds and settings he uses to dominate the competition.

If you ever want to play like the professionals, you need to think like them, and one of the easiest ways to do that is to mimic what they do in their games.

It’s hard to think of many better pros to try and be like than Bugha, who famously took home the number one spot during the Fortnite World Cup.

Bugha is one of the best Fortnite players in the world.

He is constantly pestered by viewers to reveal his settings, so that’s what he finally did in a YouTube video.

In his upload, the Fortnite pro goes through all of the tabs the game offers so viewers know exactly how to set their graphics on PC to get the most frames-per-second out of matches.

Like most pros, he plays in 1080p, but instead of playing with a unlocked framerate, he caps it at 240. His draw distance, which will affect how far you’re able to see, is set to “Medium” while the rest of his settings are either off or on low.

The most important thing, and what players are likely most interested in, are his keybinds and he went through and gave viewers a glimpse at those.

For a game that uses as many as keys as Fortnite thanks to its building mechanic, it’s important to get something that feels right for you. Many players will use a mouse that has buttons on the side for their ramps and walls, but there are still several pros who still prefer using their keyboard.

Bugha does use his mouse for a lot of his building, and he explains how he uses the side buttons to open up his inventory and build options, making everything all in one handy spot.

Now, just because you copy someone’s keybinds doesn’t mean you’ll instantly become as good as they are. It will still take plenty of practice, and definitely won’t be an overnight thing.

You also might have to purchase a new mouse if you do plan on binding some settings to it. A survey of 120 Fortnite pros revealed what the most popular equipment is among them, so if you do find yourself looking to improve your skills, it might be worth picking up some new peripherals.

Who knows, if these new settings end up paying off – you could find yourself in the next Fortnite World Cup!

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
