Fortnite Update V7.20 to bring huge sensitivity changes for building and targeting

Fortnite fans are eagerly anticipating the V7.20 Update for the popular battle royal game, and Epic Community Coordinator Sean Hamilton has given fans a preview of the patch notes by announcing changes to the game’s sensitivity settings.

Fortnite is one of the biggest games in the world, and one of the things that helps sets it apart from other battle royale titles is the ability to build your own cover, which can be especially handy when in battle against other opponents.

With building being such a huge part of the game’s mechanics, Fortnite fans are constantly practising and improving their skills, and these changes should help players reach new heights with the construction technique.

Hamilton, known to Fortnite fans as MrPopoTFS, tweeted on Monday, January 14 that the V7.20 update would bring new adjustments to how the games sensitivity works.

The changes will help improve targeting and building senstivity.

The game’s sensitivity settings will be updated to allow for more “granular adjustments”, meaning players can now finetune their mouse or controller sensitivity with greater accuracy to help them find the perfect level for them

Seperate targeting, scope and gamepad building sensitivity settings will also now be shared across Fortnite’s two gamemodes, Battle Royale and Save The World, meaning no matter what you’re playing, the game will always feel the same.

Finally, players who adjust their building sensitivity will now also see the change applied when in Edit Mode, which means players can now complete edits at the same speed they would when building.

Fortnite’s V7.20 update will become officially available on either Tuesday, January 15 or Wednesday, January 15, although it’s currently unknown for sure which day it will be.

It’s widely expected that fans will finally get their hands on the Drift Board, which was delayed early on in Season 7 due to issues with the item.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
