Fortnite pros Myth and Tfue share why console players are hard to play with

Top Fortnite players have developed and honed their own ways to dominate in the battle royale, but some pros believe that console players may have a bit too much of a leg up in the game.

Fortnite is available on virtually any gaming platform, including mobile phones, and to compensate for the game’s fast-paced action on some devices, aim assist is featured on many iterations of the game.

Fortnite pros TSM Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani and FaZe Clan Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney gave some tamed opinions of the game’s aim assist feature and how it can heavily influence the competition.

Fortnite welcomed millions more players when it brought the game to numerous consoles, but it also gave them a better tracking feature.

After Tfue said that aim assist can help console players aim better, Myth suggested that the phrase is taboo for those players as it would discredit the community’s aiming prowess.

“No no no, Tfue, you can’t use the words ‘it helps’ dude. That’s a big no-word from the console community because that would make us (sic) seem like they are godly aimers,” Myth said.

The lobby of players agreed that aiming on console is definitely difficult without the precision that a mouse could give, but the feature could give console players an overly generous amount of help in engagements.

“Alright, it’s safe to say that when it comes to playing Fortnite, in close to mid-range combat, mobile players have the best aim, then console players, then PC players,” Tfue said.

The backlash comes from the relatively easy mechanic of spamming the aim assist function to get a continuously correct aim at certain distances.

The streamers were careful to mince words as the topic of discussion is prone to volatile flame from the community, but the discussion is a legitimate point of concern when tournaments allow PC players and console players to compete with one another.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
