Twitch star Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani weighed in on the endless mouse and keyboard vs controller debate, explaining why it is actually harder to play Fortnite with a controller.

The mouse and keyboard vs controller debate is one as old as time, with the two groups never being able to agree on much of anything and constantly warring for supremacy. It’s no different in Fortnite, as both groups dub the other one as easier.

Myth joined the fray during a stream on March 5, where he stated that playing Fortnite is more difficult with a controller and explained the reasons behind his somewhat unexpected statement.

Myth: Twitch
Myth has become one of the most popular players in Fortnite and fans usually value his opinion.

It all began when a viewer asked him if mouse and keyboard was hard to learn and the Team SoloMid member dived into an in-depth explanation. “Yeah if you’ve never played on it [mouse and keyboard]. But, in my opinion, becoming an average mouse and keyboard player is easier than becoming an average controller player.”

He then paused to really think about his statement before continuing and explained what’s easier from beginner to pro.

“When learning a new peripheral, both are very difficult, but then to be average it’s easier on mouse and keyboard. Then to become god tier, the top 1%, is harder on controller than it on mouse and keyboard for Fortnite. That’s it,” he added.

Myth then explained the reason behind his opinion, saying “becoming a top tier Fortnite controller player has taken way more time [than mouse and keyboard]. And now that controller players are actually reaching their peak guess what’s happening, PC players are switching.”

The key reason seems to be that controller players are finding more and more success in Fortnite, with Ali claiming that it just took them longer to reach their peak.

Of course, his chat was split, with some viewers agreeing and some disagreeing, as with any peripheral discussion.

However, Myth does make a good point, but, it’s very unlikely we’ll ever have a clear answer to the timeless debate.

Fortnite has been teasing the arrival of a Predator skin throughout Season 5, and now he’s finally arrived on The Island. Here’s how to unlock his skin.

Season 5 of Fortnite has introduced a number of exciting crossover skins to tie in with its ‘bounty hunter’ theme, including The Mandalorian, God of War’s Kratos, and Halo’s Master Chief. So what’s next? Well, it’s the Predator’s turn now.

The terrifying character first appeared in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s hit 1987 movie Predator and went on to spawn a massive franchise of sequels and spin-offs. He’s easily one of the most recognizable characters in movie history.

There have been plenty of hints about Predator’s arrival already given throughout Season 5, including the alien warrior’s logo appearing on a door, a helicopter crash site, and a truck being used as a generator like in the movie.

It’s now been confirmed that Predator has landed in Fortnite, and fans are pretty hyped for his arrival. Here’s everything you need to know about unlocking the skin so you can use it yourself.

How to unlock the Predator skin in Fortnite

Following the v15.21 update, players who have purchased the Season 5 Battle Pass will be able to see a new Mystery Rewards section, which is where you can view the Jungle Hunter Quests that need to be completed to unlock Predator cosmetics.

As you can see in the Battle Pass menu below, unlocking the Predator skin requires you to complete one very challenging task: Defeat Predator. This won’t be easy, and it’s recommended you do it in Squads to get some support.

To defeat Predator, you’ll need to head to Stealthy Stronghold and locate him. He’s incredibly agile and will utilize his Cloaking Device to turn almost invisible, so taking him down will be a very difficult task.

There will also be plenty of other players trying to complete this challenge and unlock Predator, so it’s going to be mayhem. We’ve put together a guide to defeating Predator that might help you in your mission.

How to unlock Predator emote, back bling & pickaxe

As well as the Predator skin, players with the Battle Pass can unlock a Yautja Wristblades pickaxe, a Hunter’s Trophy back bling, The Hunt loading screen, a Bio-Helmet Online emote, and a Hunter’s Arsenal weapon wrap.

Here are the Jungle Hunter Quests you’ll need to complete to unlock them all:

  • Find mysterious pod (Banner Icon)
  • Talk with Beef Boss, Remedy, and Dummy (Logo Emote)
  • Collect Medkits (Graffiti Spray)
  • Collect Legendary Weapons or rarer (Loading Screen)
  • Defeat Predator (Predator Skin)
  • Complete a Bounty as Predator (Hunter’s Trophy Back Bling)
  • Visit Predator’s apartment in Hunter’s Haven as Predator (Bio-Helmet Online Emote)
  • Spend 30 seconds within 10 meters of a player as Predator (Yautja Wristblades Pickaxe)
  • Deal damage while thermal is active as Predator (Hunter’s Arsenal Weapon Wrap)

The Bio-Helmet Online emote in particular is one you’ll definitely want to unlock, as it allows the player to remove Predator’s mask and reveal the horrifying face underneath.

We have a feeling this will become a fan favorite in Fortnite very quickly.
