The Mounted Turrets have been the subject of much controversy and discussion since its release and it looks like players now have one more thing to talk about with a new discovery.

Mounted Turrets were introduced to Fortnite with the v6.30 update and have cause many players to call for widespread fixes or the straight up removal of the item from the game.

With no plans to vault the item have been revealed, it looks like there might be a new adjustment that needs to be made to the controversial item.

It turns out that in addition to just be an overall oppressive force when used, it also completely protects the user from being targeted by aim assist.


Reddit user ‘Mr_Dragzzz’ posted a short video demonstrating the discovery, as they try to target the player sitting in the Turret using aim assist without much success.

Every time Mr_Dragzzz goes to aim at the opponent in the Turret, the aim assist snaps to the base of the turret, causing him to have to fight against the aim assist to actually get a shot off on the player.

While one user in the comments to the post said that this sort of thing happens with all vehicles in Fortnite, it seems a bit odd given that the Mounted Turret is technically classified as a trap.


Another user even pointed out the irony of the newly discovered issue, saying it’s “kinda ironic because aim assist is supposed to help [lead] you onto the enemy.”

Given that Epic Games have already issued multiple updates to the Mounted Turret thus far, it wouldn’t be too much of a shock to see another adjustment come in the near future.
