Fortnite gyro controls xbox - The latest update to Fortnite's Battle Royale mode is introducing gyro controls for a new range of platforms. The control scheme, made in collaboration with Julian 'Jibb' Smart, allows users to aim with the movements of their controller. The optional control scheme is optional and can be great for those who have trouble with the dual stick scheme on controllers.
The v19.30 update also adds bump stick and improved lobby menu systems, as well as some bug fixes and other improvements. Gyro controls were originally implemented for Nintendo Switch and Android users, but have now been significantly improved.
What are gyroscopic controls?
Gyroscopic controls are an optional method of pointing where you move the camera through your own controller movements, similar to the way a Wii remote uses gyroscopic technology to allow you freedom of movement, much like some PlayStation, Xbox, and other peripheral devices.
The gyroscopic controls are especially beneficial because it allows you the same precision as a mouse, all with the comfort and utility of a handheld controller. The right stick is still used to turn the camera, so you can still turn, but aiming is much easier.
How do the gyroscopic controls work?
You can turn on gyro controls enable or disable the gyro controls settings in the touch and motion tab. There are a plethora of different scaling and system options to get the best possible control scheme for your own style of play.
Active mode allows you to choose when and how the gyroscopic controls are activated. For example, choosing the scope only setting means that the gyroscope will only be active when pressing the aim button on scoped weapons. This means you can take precise shots without worrying about when and where your gyroscope will be ready.
There are two types of active mode settings; combat and construction. Combat refers to how the gyro controls behave when you're in a firefight, and build refers to the gyro schemes when you're building forts. There are several options to choose from in each configuration.
It's also worth having a linked button for temporary disabling of the gyro controls if you opt to have them on all the time. To do this, go to the look stick effect option or bind a control to the gyroscope modifier option.
In addition to this, you can also choose the sensitivity, vertical-horizontal ratio, and stabilize from your gyro controls. Use them to complement the way you hold your controller in tense situations, especially if you're choosing a combat option.
Finally, there's the whammy stick option, which allows you to quickly turn with the look stick by moving it in your chosen direction. Do this if you choose to have your gyro controls on only while aiming, which means your control stick can be used effectively if you're being flanked.
