Fortnite star Tfue reveals why he’d consider switching to controller, and it’s not aim assist

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.

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
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

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.
