Change control settings in Fortnite: Battle Royale
Bit lost on what button does what? Unfortunately, there is no tutorial currently around for the Battle Royale mode in Fortnite. Or a training zone, which would be very helpful to practice building and weapons.
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.

Control settings for PC Players
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.
Fortnite Battle Royale settings for Consoles
If you’re a console player, there are a few different presets you can use for either the PS4 or Xbox One controller. These are called Combat Pro, Quick Builder and Standard.
Unfortunately I’m not a Console player myself so don’t have too much information regarding console controls in Fortnite Battle Royale.
