Epic Games has released a brand-new update for Fortnite that changes the game’s version number to v7.30. This is a big update for both the PC and mobile versions of the game because it introduces a new event, new weapons and game balance changes. However, the most important news for Fortnite Mobile players is that the game is now going to support third-party Bluetooth controllers. This is a game changing feature and Fortnite Mobile is going to become even more competitive than before.
Fortnite Mobile Now Supports Controllers
The most difficult thing about Fortnite Mobile is the fact that players have to rely on their smartphone’s touchscreen when it comes to aiming instead of a mouse and keyboard. Using the touchscreen in order to aim is a bit tricky and it takes time to get used to. 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.
Supported Controller Adapters
Epic Games didn’t just announce that Fortnite Mobile is going to support third-party controllers from now on. The game developer also announced which controllers exactly are supported right now. With that said, let’s check them out.
- Android: All Bluetooth controllers and adapters (Steelseries Stratus XL, Razer Raiju, Moto Gamepad, Gameevice, Xbox 1, and many more);
- iOS: All MFi controllers and adapters (Steelseries Nimbus, Gamevice, and many more);
Even though this feature was long expected, we have to note that the majority of Fortnite Mobile’s player base is not happy with it. Not everyone owns a controller adapter that can connect with their smartphone and this seems unfair to them. Other players are going to have a massive advantage because moving, building and aiming in Fortnite Mobile is going to be so much easier now.
