Tfue explains why mouse & keyboard in Fortnite is a disadvantage
Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has explained why the battle royale is the “worst” mouse and keyboard title ever and also noted that he won’t be giving in and playing with a controller anytime soon.
Even though Fortnite is still setting records for their events and usual matchmaking, professional players like Tfue have plenty of problems with the battle royale in competitive matches.
There have been plenty of frustrations aired with controller players, aim assist, matchmaking servers, and even how tournaments have played out. Now though, Tfue has unleashed both barrels on Fortnite – labeling it as the “worst” game ever for mouse and keyboard players.
During his April 27 stream, the Fortnite star had become frustrated in his final game as he seemed unable to take buildings away from other players. As he was eliminated, his frustrations boiled over and he let loose on the battle royale.
“Nice, you’re a controller player, just jump in with a Scar! This game is so bad. This is the worst mouse and keyboard game I’ve f**king played in my entire life,” he said. “I don’t know who in their right mind enjoys this game on mouse and keyboard, you are f**king psychotic. It is dogs**t. This game is f**king terrible.”
Some viewers suggested that he swap his mouse and keyboard for a controller – just as some other pro players have done. Though, Tfue added that he just couldn’t do that for the time being.

He continued: “Chat, I would switch to controller but I hate to break it to you, this game is going to die and every other mouse and keyboard game, PC game, is going to be dogs**t on controller. There’s never been a game like this before.”
Tfue also claimed that every “relevant” controller player would be “irrelevant” if Fortnite does indeed die, because they can’t make the switch to games like Valorant or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with their controller.
Some fans also pushed him to move away from Florida, as he’s already teased, in order to fix his ping issues, though Tfue pointed out that doing so wouldn’t fix every problem he has with Fortnite.
If his professional future still lies with Fortnite or he ends up making the switch elsewhere, however, remains to be seen.
