Should You Switch To Mouse & Keyboard? - Fortnite Battle Royale

5. feb.. 2021

In this video, I talk about whether or not it's worth switching to keyboard and mouse in Fortnite. I wanted to make this video since 100 Thieves Arkhram, one of the best Fortnite pro players in the world, just swapped from mouse & keyboard to controller. This hasn't happened since early Chapter 2 Season 2 when pro players like EpikWhale made the switch from mouse and keyboard to controller. What I do is I talk about the pros and cons of each input device, keyboard & mouse vs controller in Fortnite, explain why some pros have recently made the switch, and give my opinion for all of you guys going from console to PC or just wondering if you should switch to keyboard and mouse in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5. So, if you're looking for a video to compare keyboard and mouse vs controller, as well as to answer your question on whether or not you should make the switch, then this video is definitely for you. On top of that, this video will help you improve on keyboard and mouse, go through the transition of console to PC, and win more in Fortnite Battle Royale. Yessir, I got you boys.

  • I’m looking at making the switch to kbm cause I’ve been playing fortnite for three years on controller and I would say I’m pretty good. But I’m just not having as much fun anymore. So do you think I should make the switch under my Circumstances.

  • I play on controller on pc because I just can't figure out how to use kb&m and am pretty good on controller, It's not like I can't use kb&m because I'm pretty good on other games but the building mechanic just is so hard to learn a 2nd time.

  • I just tried KBM for the first time, been playing on console...long range aim is insane. it is so easy to just laser people. I mean I could barely move, and I died every time someone got close but I destroyed people at range, it reminded me of playing with L2 spam.
