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.
