Popular content creator Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins explains why controller players should not be allowed to play Fortnite on PC in the game’s current state.
Since cross-platform play was introduced to Fortnite, allowing PC and console players to test their skills against one another, many players have questioned just how level the playing field is for both platforms.

While he was streaming matches on the popular battle royale with his duo Reverse2k, Ninja also shared his thoughts on what changes needed to be made after the pair to lost out a supposed controller player in-game.
The Mixer star explained that controller vs mouse and keyboard can lead to some unfair matchups in-game. “If people want to play on controller, then play on the Xbox or PlayStation. […] [Controller on PC] creates these weird little situations and matchups where that guy right there, literally was not going to miss a shot.”
“He doesn’t need to have any aim whatsoever, his scar is going to head dink you every single time,” Ninja explained, giving his take on the controversial topic, “so many arguments, listen I understand its a better experience to play on the PC, right? You get better frames. I’m well aware of that, then use the mouse and keyboard.”
