Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 UPDATE: Legacy Controls GONE next update

Epic Games schedules removal of setting which proved problematic for some players

by Ramzi Musa

Epic Games have announced that the legacy controls of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 will be gone come 13th of March. Great news for some we’re sure, but why this decision – and why now?

To recap – Legacy controls offered aim assist to gamepad users as they were typically less accurate and slower than those playing on PC, with a keyboard and mouse.

Being able to react quickly is a core element to victory – every millisecond makes a difference not only with Fortnite, but a host of other games too.
