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.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
