Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has revealed the one reason why he’d hang up his keyboard and mouse set-up for good and switch it out for a controller. 

As well as being one of the biggest names on Twitch, Tfue is also legitimately one of the best Fortnite Battle Royale players in the world – amassing $503,400 in prize earnings through stellar tournament performances

Tenney has already qualified for the Fortnite World Cup’s solo event with his keyboard and mouse, but he might be willing to switch things up after discovering an enticing option within the controller settings.

YouTube: TfueTfue has become ridiculously popular as Fortnite player and content creator.

During his June 30 stream, Tfue was taken down by a controller-using enemy when he had been unable to rotate a ramp during a build battle. The Fortnite star immediately complained about his low sensitivity affecting him, before considering the option of switching to a controller himself. 

“Bro, honestly, I’m about to just switch to controller – it’s just so much better,” he started. “Like, imagine having an editing sensitivity, that would be so sick.” Tfue continued on, complaining about his current sensitivity level but admitting to not wanting to change because it would throw off his whole game.

After one fan told him to grind through practice courses to make things work, Tfue added: “It’s not even that. I play on such a low sensitivity that I literally have to fucking swipe like fucking crazy. They just need to add an editing sens like console. That’d be fun.”

Will Tfue make the switch?

Considering Epic Games’ staff are out of the office for the next two weeks on a well-deserved break, it’s probably unlikely that they’ll be rushing back to work in a bid to release a similar option on PC. That’s not to say it won’t come in the future, but it would be a pretty big shift and may take some time. 

Regardless of that, the sensitivity isn’t the only problem Tfue has had with Fortnite recently – after he was left frustrated with how “dumb” it is that ping plays such a big part in the outcome of a match.

Despite all that though, Tfue will have to perceive and gear up for the $30 million World Cup event, where he will enter as one of the favorites.

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
