Fortnite To Soon Split Keyboad/Mouse And Controller Players, New Matchmaking Rules Inbound

Fortnite is full of content and people as it’s currently the most popular game but sometimes, console players get quite disappointed due to the ability to use mouse/keyboard in the game even on the console. Use of which causes balance issues and PlayStation players are not happy.

Fortnite players on the PS4 system are especially not happy with the use of keyboard and mouse rather than a controller. A thread has been created on Epic Games forum since 2017 where everyone has been complaining about this issue and Epic Games finally have a response.

There are indeed some physical limitations in a controller which makes it hard to rotate while editing, weapon selection and more. Now whether you support keyboard/mouse on PS4 or not, Epic Games is going to balance it.

As said by a community manager on  r/FortniteBR subreddit:

“We’re actually working on some matchmaking tech, on the way, that’ll pair you against folks based on your choice of peripherals. More info on this coming next week, but tl;dr if you’re on KB+M you’ll be against KB+M.” 

Fortnite players are now definitely going to be happy with this and if you want to be more then we have to tell you that, Fortnite challenges for Season 5 Week 5 are now available and you can visit here to know how to complete them.

Fortnite is now finally also coming on Android devices but it will be not available through PlayStore, instead, you will have to download it from the official Epic Games site and it’s only available for Samsung users as of now.

A shotgun and Two new snipers are also coming to Fortnite as revealed by the Dataminers which is going to bring a lot of new options for you to get that victory Royale much easily.

This tweak to matchmaking will definitely be good for every player as sometimes it’s really an advantage for the players with mouse over the players with controllers. It will bring balance to the game and the players will know that the other was really skilled or not.
