Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3: Best Controller Presets - Quick Builder, Builder Pro, Combat Pro, Our Custom Preset & More

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 is just around the corner, so it might be a good time to finesse your controller settings in time for the big update.

There are four distinct controller presets for Fortnite, including the 'old school' preset that Season 1 veterans will remember for all the wrong reasons.

You also have the option to create your own custom preset, so we will provide you with our best custom preset.

Continue below for all of the details!

The building settings are very intuitive, and it helps to be able to pop up some cover when you are taking damage.

Although you can start from scratch with a custom preset, we recommend that you use 'Builder Pro' as your basis (since it is best for the build-heavy meta of the game).

Builder Pro also allows you to build the most smoothly with it's 'Turbo Building' feature.

However, when you need to edit something, pressing circle isn’t anywhere near quick enough - we would recommend that you choose to click L3 instead.

If you’re worried about how this will impact sprinting, you should turn 'automatically run' on.

Our final recommendation would be that you change your crouch input to something intuitive for when you are editing and building since default Fortnite settings do not allow you to crouch.

Using L3 for editing will take some getting used to, so have a few practice rounds to familiarise yourself.
