Fortnite players who prefer to play on console with a controller will be happy to now know that they can change their building sensitivity in-game.
Thanks to the brand new v6.10 patch for Fortnite Battle Royale, players are now able to separately change their sensitivity for building instead of it being included with the aiming sensitivity.
This new change will now allow console users to get one step closer to having as many building advantages as players who use mouse & keyboard on PC. Mouse and Keyboard users will still mostly have the option of having lots of different buttons on both the mouse and keyboard in order to take full advantage of building.
However, this new patch is allowing controller users on console to build much quicker than before, due to increased sensitivity – allowing for faster movements.
Epic Games have also updated the Builder Pro controller layout so that you place a piece instantly instead of switching to it and then having to press again to place.
You can view the full patch notes of the update through our article, or you can view all the leaked cosmetics that were found in the files of the patch to have a sneak peek at upcoming Item Shops. Either way, let us know what you think!
Here you can find the Fortnite Battle Royale Item Shop for Wednesday, October 17th, 2018. Alternatively, you can turn on Tweet Notifications for @FortniteINTEL to be notified right when the Item Shop updates.

Ellen DeGeneres is one of the most famous talk show hosts in the world – The Ellen DeGeneres Show pulls in millions of viewers every day at 3PM EST over on NBC.
What trend would her popularity go best with? How about something even more popular right now – Fortnite Battle Royale. Ellen recently had Tyler “Ninja” Blevins on her show, but not in person. Ninja is a massive, if not the biggest, Fortnite personality on YouTube and Twitch and has been the face and mascot of Fortnite for quite a while now.
So, fittingly Ninja – for his second appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show – decided to show up to the audience live from his home, technically making them all viewers of his live stream that he was actually running at the time. You can view the clip below, but it involves Ellen talking to Blevins about his previous appearance in which he taught Ellen how to play Fortnite.
You can view the clip in which Ninja teaches Ellen how to play Fortnite below, and make up your own mind with what you think of modern-day personalities trying to jump on the Fortnite trend.
Anyone can compete in these tournaments, which will take place over a number of days as players attempt to earn a target score based on their in-game performance.
Epic Games revealed that the first ‘Alpha Tournament’ will be held between October 16 and October 21, and will have a ‘Solo’ format.
You can view the Alpha Tournament start times for North America, Europe, Brazil, Asia, and Oceania below.
Fortnite Alpha Tournament: October 16 – October 21
There’s currently a visual issue in the Event Tab in-game that’s causing North America to appear as your region in the bottom right of the screen regardless of your currently selected region. This is a visual issue only and you will be properly placed in the region you have selected once the event begins.
All times appearing in the Events tab will show the correct time related to the region you’re currently playing on. This means if you are playing on the EU region that you’ll see North America in the bottom right, but all times related to the event will still show the proper EU times.
But since I’m here, let’s take a look at the Event times for Alpha Tournament in all regions.
NA (Note: NAW & NAE share the same tournament, but matchmaking will be by selected server region)
2300 – 0200 UTC
7 PM – 10 PM ET
4 PM – 7 PM PT
1600 – 1900 UTC
6 PM – 9 PM CEST
2200 – 0100 UTC
7 PM – 10 PM BRT
1000 – 1300 UTC
7 PM – 10 PM JST
0600 – 0900 UTC
5 PM – 8 PM AEDT
NOTE: If the tournament is live in your region and you don’t see the game mode as playable, please relaunch Battle Royale.”
The Fortnite Fall Skirmish is a set of tournaments and competitions held over the course of an eight week period with a total prize pool of $10 million.
Players, streamers, and content creators are split into five Clubs – Lucky Llamas, Rift Riders, Dusty Dogs, Bush Bandits, and Fort Knights – to gain points for their respective squads throughout the season.
The suit, shared by Engadget, requests that both content creators’ earnings be “disgorged” along with paying standard court fees and damage costs. The earnings were made through selling cheat tools and modification software, which should allow Epic Games to take some of the profit.
Lucas has over 1.7 million subscribers on YouTube, and defends himself with the argument that other YouTubers were participating in the same activities, so he had no idea that his content was troublesome.
If Epic Games win the court case, which is highly likely, then it will send a strong message to other modders and cheaters all around the world.
