Fortnite Developers To Make Improvements to Building For Console Players

Developers of Fortnite, Epic Games, has revealed their plans to make a serious improvement to building controls for console players, responding to requests from fans.

As any good Fortnite player knows, building is essential to winning battles and becoming a top player, but with the limited functions of an Xbox or PlayStation controller, the mechanics can be more cumbersome than using a keyboard and mouse.

Epic Games did make big improvements with the ‘Builder Pro’ controller setting, as well as options such as turbo building, auto-material change and revert building choice, most of which was added with the v3.5 update.

However, one area which console players are still lacking in is the editing function, which requires multiple button presses to successfully edit a simple build.

With the cross platform functionality, console players often come up against PC players, and can find themselves at a significant disadvantage with PC players able to more easily out-build and edit during fights.

But there is hope for console players, at an Epic Games employee has addressed the concerns around editing, explaining that the team are looking into having a new controller setting allowing for a dedicated edit button.

When a reddit user asked about the possibility, Epic Games employee u/darkveil gave a short but insightful response.


Unfortunately, this was the only official word on a new controller setting for console, with no details of when this could possibly be implemented.

It would be a fairly significant change however, and so may not be added until the next major update, or longer still, depending on how long it takes Epic to devise the layout.

Nonetheless it is very positive news for console players, who may be able to keep pace with their PC counterparts.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
