What the Best Sensitivity Is to Play Fortnite on Xbox One
While keyboard and mouse arguably offer unrivaled sensitivity and accuracy when it comes to shooting games (with Fortnite being no exception), it is possible to get pretty darn accurate with a controller, too. Not on the same level, but by messing with the sensitivity of your Xbox One controller, you can get an optimal playing experience. The problem is, the best sensitivity to play Fortnite on Xbox One isn’t as simple as just giving you a number, so we’ll explain it to you down below.
From our experience with Fortnite on Xbox One, we found that we had to adjust the controller sensitivity to different numbers depending on the size of the display we were playing on. In order to move your reticle swiftly around a larger screen, chances are you’ll want to have your sensitivity higher than you would on a normal screen. That’s just us, but that’s the next point we’re going to move to.
Ultimately, the best sensitivity you can play Fortnite on on Xbox One is completely down to what works best for you. While a higher sensitivity will enable you to keep up and track your enemy movements easier, if you’re not used to it, your accuracy could go down the toilet. As such, it’s about finding a sensitivity that you’re still accurate with, but also enables you to do aim and track at the fastest possible speed you can keep up with.
To give you an idea of the best sensitivity that’s worked for us when playing Fortnite on Xbox One, we’ve listed them all down below. This is also while playing on a 32″ monitor, so keep in mind that these may not work for you if you’re playing on a significantly larger display.
- Controller Sensitivity X: 0.6
- Controller Sensitivity Y: 0.6
- Controller Targeting Sensitivity: 0.68
- Controller Scope Sensitivity: 0.68
And there you have what you need to know to get the best sensitivity to play Fortnite on Xbox One for you. Play around with these settings, see what feels right for you after a few games (it will take a while to get used to), and voila!
