IMMERSION - Sony has gone into great detail when it comes to player's immersion!

This only effects the triggers, meaning the L2 and R2 buttons and won't change the feel of the L1 and L2 bumpers.

These adaptive triggers will change the way we interact with weapons.

For example, when using a bow, the trigger will feel as if it's under tension when using a bow, or vibrate when using an automatic weapon.

This will make Fortnite feel more realistic increasing the immersion factor.
