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.
