TSM Myth tries Fortnite on console to give his verdict on Aim Assist debate

After Ninja suggested that players using controllers on PC should have no aim-assist, a debate sparked in the community with lots of top players involved, the latest being TSM’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani.

NICKMERCS, who uses a controller himself and is regarded as one of the very best, argued that “anyone with a brain” knows that using a controller puts you at a serious disadvantage vs keyboard and mouse “in the grand scheme.”

FaZe Clan pro Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney also sided with NICKMERCS, saying that Fortnite without aim assist for controller players would not be enjoyable, concluding “dude, just give them aim assist.”

So, in an effort to educate himself on the ways of controller Fortnite, before giving his verdict on the aim assist debate, Myth decided to plug in an Xbox One controller and give it a shot.

After some time with the controller, which included some impressive kills with the hand cannon among others, Myth gave his first impressions.

“Listen, I’mma tell you right now, you console players, y’all on some bullshit. I’mma keep it one hundred with you.”

However, at the end of his session with the controller, his opinions on aiming with assistance became more clear. 

Myth believes that while aiming is still easier and more precise with a mouse, ‘tracking’ opponents is made easier on console due to the aim assist.

“All I’m saying is that this [controller], makes tracking easy. You can track better with this, than you can with a mouse. Tracking – not aiming – tracking. [Controller] is easier to track with, not aiming. Mouse wins aiming.”

Epic Games recently announced that Fortnite would be supporting native keyboard and mouse inputs on Xbox One, which will put players into lobbies with other keyboard and mouse players only.

However, when using a controller on PC, there are no separated lobbies, meaning keyboard and mouse players (with no aim assist) will occasionally come up against a controller opponent, which is what kicked off the debate initially.

Xbox One will get native keyboard and mouse support for Fortnite on November 14.

Epic Games’ decision making when it comes to player inputs is more focused on attracting the most players possible, and not excluding anyone based on their input preferences, which is partly why it reached a record breaking concurrent player count of 8 million, earlier in November.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
