Bugha stunned by Fortnite’s controller aim assist after crazy blind shot

Fortnite star Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf managed to once again display the ridiculous powerful of controller aim assist by pulling off an insane kill during a duos match-up.

Like many games that allow for keyboard and mouse versus controllers, Fortnite has run into some issues with the power of the latter’s aim assist – with some players equating it to having aim bot-like power.

Of course, there are downsides to using a controller in terms of building vs PC players, but it is the aim assist in gunfights that has caused players like Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney to speak out and claim to have “less respect” for players who wield a controller. Yet, it’s Bugha who has dived head first to showcase how powerful it still is in Fortnite Chapter 2.

Epic GamesBugha hasn’t dominated Fortnite since his World Cup win but he’s still an elite player.

The Fortnite World Cup winner had been playing alongside fellow Sentinels player Cayden ‘Carose’ Bradford in a few duo matches when swapped his usual keyboard and mouse set-up for a controller.

Almost instantly, it worked as Bugha managed to deal 44 shield damage to a player that was stood behind a tree and who he even admitted that he couldn’t really see. “I just hit for 44 through a tree, couldn’t even see him,” he said before his teammate laughed at the ridiculousness of the callout. “Wow,” Bugha added.

It’s not the only example of the Sentinels star showing just how crazy it can be when using a controller. 

He even tweeted out a clip on December 23 showing himself engaged in a build battle, before landing a perfect shot with the legendary pump shotgun on an unsuspecting player. Yet, he wasn’t finished there.

Bugha even managed to quickly focus his attention on another foe who was trying to pick him off behind cover. Instead, the World Cup winner rained down a barrage of quick shots that scored him another stunning elimination.

Of course, while the controller aim assist is still pretty ridiculous, it’s still unlikely that players trace out their keyboards and mice in favor of one.

After all, it just takes a few changes from Epic Games to put a stop to overpowered assist – even if they try and keep it around to level the playing field.


How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
