Fortnite adds Bluetooth controller support on mobile

Share

The mobile version of Fortnite now supports game controllers, thanks to a feature update from Epic, which it teased support for previous year. The latest Fortnite V7.30 patch is bringing a long-requested feature by the community.

Fortnite will support a number of Android Bluetooth controller adapters, including: Steelseries Stratus XL, Xbox1, Gamevice, Moto Gamepad and Razer Raiju. For the iOS devices, mobile owners can get support for MFi controllers like the Steelseries Nimbus and Gamevice. However, this is not going to be a problem for Fortnite Mobile players anymore since the game now supports third-party controllers that can be connected via Bluetooth. And if the inclusion of this controller support isn't enough to float your boat, maybe the addition of 60Hz support for select Android models will pique your interest. Epic is also adding a new "chiller" grenade shaped like a snowman, several vaulted guns, and an experimental tournament mode that allows you to edit each other's structures regardless of team status. Also, when a controller will be attached to your device, vibration will be disabled. So, overall this update is a complete package with some great additions in the game. Just ask those playing Fortnite on Android and iOS. Drop in and earn a Victory in a whole new way. The current Limited Time Mode is "Solid Gold", where all weapon spawns are Legendary-tier, and building materials are plentiful.

The Chiller Grenade knocks players back and causes them to slide along the ground. This means you'll have far more opportunities to find powerful weapons and items than you normally would. You can find it in Fortnite from both Vending Machines and Floor Loot in-game, so they're more ubiquitous than you might think.
