Epic Games’ battle royale Fortnite planned on removing its “Legacy Look Controls

Epic Games’ battle royale Fortnite planned on removing its “Legacy Look Controls,” an aim-assist system meant to help players using controllers for the cross-platform title versus a more precise mouse and keyboard, on March 13. However after a 7-day countdown to the change in-game, the developers decided not to move forward with the removal just yet.

This halt was announced by the Fortnite Status Twitter account yesterday with a message saying Legacy Look Controls will remain enabled “for a short time longer.” The account promises to provide an update when the setting is removed, but confirms that the improved system meant to replace those aim-assist controls is available and can be activated while maintaining each player’s previous controller sensitivity settings.

No official explanation vbucks generator has been given for the delayed feature implementation on Twitter, and the most recent news post on Fortnite‘s website as of this writing is a status report about incoming features from March 9. For now fans of the battle royale will have to keep taking part in the war between the Shadow and Ghost spy factions with legacy aim-assist active.

Note: Players who have “Use Legacy Look Controls” enabled when the setting is removed will have their legacy sensitivities automatically converted to the new Sensitivity settings.

That ongoing battle is the main draw of Fortnite‘s current content releases, as players can earn rare weapons by taking part in multi-step events within each game that involve NPC enemies like the Henchmen. A bevy of special skins based on the competing Ghost and Shadow factions are currently available through Fortnite‘s Battle Pass.

Players can also take part in weekly events that connect with Marvel’s comic book superhero Deadpool, one of many recent crossovers with Disney-owned brands that included an in-game sneak preview of Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. The current Deadpool event involves using plungers to destroy toilets across the map for a chance at earning rewards based on the popular character.

While the fairness of aim assist being given to certain players has been a debate within the Fortnite community for some time, it is also believed to be helping in-game entities like the Henchmen. Popular streamers like Tyler “Ninja” Blevins have commented on the NPCs having unfair aim since a patch released at the beginning of March, so it will be interesting to see if this is also addressed when Legacy Look Controls are finally given the boot.
