Fortnite Patch V6.10 brings custom building sensitivity for console players

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.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
