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.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
