Fortnite World Cup winner and popular streamer, Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf, has called for Epic Games to nerf controller aim assist.

Since late in 2019, Fortnite fans have been debating how much of an advantage controller players have due to aim assist, making it a hot topic among streamers as well.

Many of the top players, such as Tfue and Ninja, have been quite vocal about their frustrations with this supposed controller advantage, and World Cup champ Bugha is the latest pro to voice his concerns.

Bugha is the latest pro to speak out on controller aim assist in Fortnite.

The Fortnite star was streaming pro scrims for his viewers on February 29 when he was picked out of the air with two clean shots from fellow pro, Scoped, who is regarded as one of the best controller players.

Scoped’s shots were instantly criticized, however, as Bugha claimed that controller players had a significant advantage and started calling for aim assist to be nerfed.

“What…Scoped, dude controller, please just get nerfed, I will do anything it’s not fair.” he expressed, calling for Epic to make changes.

The Sentinels pro then likened the controller’s aim assist in Fortnite to hacking, suggesting that it was too easy for players like Scoped to pick up those kills against PC players.

“No keyboard and mouse player hits that sh*t, I just died man, he doesn’t even mean to lock on to me either, It’s just hacking bro, it’s actually just hacking,” Bugha added.

Although many of the top Fortnite pros have echoed the same sentiment, some of Bugha’s viewers pointed out that his low health may have made the kill seem worse than it actually was.

Epic Games revealed on their Trello board that they had implemented a fix for inconsistent aim assist in Fortnite during their February 25 maintenance patch although it is unclear if they have any plans on nerfing the controversial feature.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
