Best Key Bindings And Mouse Sensitivity In Fortnite

No comments

Having optimal key bindings and mouse sensitivity can be crucial to your success in Fortnite. By having a too high or too low sensitivity, your aim can suffer tremendously. Furthermore, key bindings are also important as ineffective key bindings make it harder to build. In this post, we’ll cover

Key bindings depend on personal preference, however, there are key bindings that objectively are more effective. These key bindings comply with certain rules that make playing and building in Fortnite easier.

First of all, you want key bindings that enable you to do as many different tasks at once as possible. This means that you need to be able to use all 5 fingers in an encounter, ie a build battle. Therefore, having ramp, wall, pyramid, and floor on x, c, v, and b isn’t effective. In this situation, you would probably only use your thumb, and or your index finger to build. This would slow down your building, and restrict your building potential.

Secondly, choosing keys that are closer to w, a, s, and d is more effective as choosing keys such as y, h, or b, might require you to move or even lift your hand.

Thirdly, using buttons on your mouse can be a very useful asset as it gives you more freedom in choosing keybindings for your left hand. If you don’t have a mouse with buttons, worry not, this isn’t a requirement. You can achieve optimal keybindings without one.

Based on these rules, we recommend the following keys for actions in Fortnite, such as building structures and edit.

Q, E, R, T, F, Z, X, C, V, and Mouse buttons.

As mentioned, some combinations can be limiting, so here are some specific key bindings sets used by proffesional players and streamers in Fortnite.

Best mouse sensitivity in Fortnite

As a general rule of thumb in any first-person shooter game, slower mouse sensitivity is better. Being able to precisely aim at the opponent, and the opponent’s head is crucial. This becomes immensely difficult at long range encounters if you have a high sensitivity. Besides that, players generally find their accuracy rises when they lower their mouse sensitivity. However, your sensitivity can also become too slow, so you can’t probably turn around and hit opponents at close encounters.

Most pro players and streamers in Fortnite, use a mouse sensitivity DPI of around 300-800, with an in-game sensitivity of x and y: 0.06 – 0.11. Your actual sensitivity in-game depends on your mouse sensitivity and your Fortnite x and y sensitivity. Here are a couple example of mouse sensitivities used by pro players and streamers in Fortnite
