Fortnite streamer Turner ‘Fortnite with a controller for the first time on stream.

There’s a never ending debate between console and PC gamers about whether or not using a mouse is really more accurate than a controller. Without taking either side it remains a fact that console games typically come with aim assist, while PC doesn’t.

As Tfue tried out Fortnite with a controller for the first time, he discovered how powerful Fortnite’s aim assist really is live on stream.

Tfue, TwitterTfue decided to try out Fortnite with a controller for the first time on stream.

Is that an Aimbot?

As Tfue warmed up on the sticks with FaZe sway before jumping into the Battle Bus, he decided to test out how Fortnite’s aim assist really worked.

With sway running away from him Tfue aimed his crosshairs and followed him using nothing more than the game’s aim assist for controllers.

Epic GamesTfue was pretty amused with Fortnite’s aim assist on controller.

“I’m following you dude,” Tfue told sway while the pair were getting used to controllers. “Yeah im follwing you bro”

So it seems like aim assist is powerful enough to follow a player as they move along the map, at least in Fortnite, but whether it provides an advantage over players who choose to use mouse and keyboard instead is still up for debate.

Did Tfue stick with the controller?

After using his controller for awhile, Tfue eventually switched back to mouse and keyboard during the stream and joked “aiming with a mouse is dog dude, too hard man.”

The streamer has said before that, due to his low sensitivity, he’d consider switching to controller, but it might just take some time to get used to.

Whether Tfue stays with mouse and keyboard or makes the switch to the sticks remains to be seen, but maybe he just needs a little more practice before making the change for good.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
