Change control settings in Fortnite: Battle Royale

Bit lost on what button does what? Unfortunatley, there is no tutorial currently around for the Battle Royale mode in Fortnite. You’re pretty much thrown into it expecting to know what to do. If you are feeling lost, take a look at the control settings to find out what mechanics exist in Fortnite BR and what all of the controls are.

Start by opening the settings menu. In the Fortnite Battle Royale client, click the 3 lines in the top right to open the menu dropdown. Then click the cog icon to open the settings area. Once inside, choose ‘Input’.

Here, you can configure your own settings. For example, I’ve set some important building objects such as stairs and walls to the side of my mouse. That way, I have much quicker access to them.

You can set two keys for each action, like ‘W’ and ‘Up arrow’ making you move forwards.

One of the other tabs says ‘Controller’, which allows you to see the controller configuration for Fortnite: Battle Royale. I imagine not many people use a controller. However it’s useful non the less.
