Fortnite players who use a controller to play the popular battle royale title will finally be able to change their building sensitivity in-game.

Released in the v6.10 patch for Fortnite Battle Royale, players will now be able to set their controller sensitivity for building separately from the sensitivity used when aiming or moving. 

The new system will work as a multiplier of normal in-game sensitivity, with players able to select different settings right up to double the speed of the game’s default sensitivity.

This means that players will be able to build much quicker on controller than previously able to, while not affecting their ability to take out enemies.

The change to controller sensitivity while building has prompted Epic Games to make changes to the slider used to dictate these settings, replacing the old 10 value slider with a new version that gives players more precise control over their sensitivity.

Epic Games have also updated the Builder Pro controller layout, that allows for building as soon as you switch to the piece, instead of selecting first and then placing. While this means that players won’t be able to preview the piece they are building, it will rapidly increase the speed gamers can build at.

Patch V6.10 brought a new Events tab to Fortnite, making it easier for players to access tournaments and official events, which Epic Games hopes will encourage fans of the game to take their first steps into the world of competitive Fortnite.

The update also brought the official launch of the Quadcrasher, a two-seater quad bike with a massive shield on the front.
