When the V5.30 update launched on August 23, Fortnite noted that they had made adjustments to the input sensitivity and accelerations for controllers, in an attempt to allow players more control when aiming.

However, with players unhappy with the change, Epic Games have reverted the aiming system back to where it was before the new patch.

The other issue that came with the release of the V5.30 update was a bug that caused players to stop sprinting when cycling through their weapons while jumping. This bug could also happen when players spam swapped their inventory midair, leaving gamers unable to move until the spam swapping was finished.
