Myth explains why Fortnite is actually harder with a controller

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.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
