The debate on input devices in Fortnite is still dividing the community but one player has shown that an iPad is all you need to build like a pro.

YouTuber AdamXLegend posted a video of him building, editing and fighting at a dizzying speed, all while using the default inputs of a mobile touchscreen.

Epic Games released a statement saying that they will not restrict input devices on any platform, leading to a divided community that is questioning the competitive balance of the game.

Some console players claim a mouse and keyboard is an unfair advantage while others say the Builder Pro controller layout is enough to compete.

Lost in the debate was mobile, with a majority of Fortnite players not considering the platform to be viable.

Mobile may be a struggle for most users, but AdamXLegend proved that at least one person is capable of posting highlights on the platform.

The clip features an extensive build battle against an enemy player, with the two fighting up sprawling towers.

AdamXLegend showed no disadvantage and got the elimination before seamlessly jumping off and saving himself from a fall death with a Jump Pad.

The input device drama was started after a relative unknown won the Fortnite Week 2 Summer Skirmish while not streaming his matches.

Accusations were thrown around about what he used to out-slay established pros, with most claiming he cheated. Epic investigated the claims and found no wrongdoing.

How to pull off powerful Fortnite She-Hulk and Ironman “super-jump”

Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan has done it again ⁠— the Fortnite star has uncovered yet another powerful interactive involving the new Marvel mythics. This time, he’s combined the She-Hulk and Ironman items to pull off a map-traversing “super-jump.”

It seems like a new mythic item is arriving in Fortnite every week during Season 4. The Marvel-themed season has appropriately themed items to go along with it, bringing each hero’s superpowers into the game.

Thor can toss around his Mjolnir, Iron Man can fly around, and well, She-Hulk can smash. Her mythic was added into the game in the latest update for players to muck around with.

She-Hulk’s mythic has finally been added to the main game.

She-Hulk’s smash allows her to jump incredible distances before smashing into the ground, knocking enemies up, and dealing damage. It’s very effective for closing down distances on opponents.

Her mythic is also very good at getting across the map quickly. SypherPK has managed to break Fortnite once again using his favorite combination of tools: Marvel mythics, and crash pads.

If you use the She-Hulk and Ironman mythics while jumping off a crash pad, you’re able to fly basically all the way across the Fortnite island. Obviously it’s a little bit silly, but if you need to make a cross-map rotation pronto, there’s no faster way.

“Iron man, plus Hulk smash jump ⁠— you get a really big boost there. Doing it in the water makes you go much further, and once you add a crash pad…it’s really cool,” Sypher said.

Segment begins at 4:54

Here’s a quick step-by-step guide:

  1. Deploy a crash pad in water.
  2. Jump in the water, and use the Iron Man Repulsor to jump into the air.
  3. Swap to the She-Hulk mythic, and use that to jump off the crash pad.
  4. Watch as you fly as far as you want across the map.

Obviously, this is probably a glitch. However, that shouldn’t stop you from abusing it whenever you get the chance ⁠— either for a bit of fun, or for a real advantage.

Epic is likely to patch it out of the game shortly, so you don’t have long to test it out for yourself. If you do manage to nab both mythics though, give it a whirl, and you might find yourself super-jumping across the map too.
