The community is divided between players who use a controller and those who prefer a keyboard and a mouse. NICKMERCS made a return to Fortnite earlier this month after a year’s absence and challenged himself immediately.

NICKMERS confessed in a recent video that his controller settings for Fortnite are ‘old school’. In order to stand a chance to win competitive tournaments, he undertook a new set of combinations.

He changed his build controls from ‘O’ to the ‘right paddle’ which initially performed the edit function. In addition, the left analog stick now performs the edit and confirm functions.

Plus, he toggled the ‘reset building choice’ function to bring up the first building piece in his inventory. He admitted that the tweaks have tangled his brain up “like some bad spaghetti”. But he also said that he will put in the hard work.

NICKMERCS, Tfue, Cloakzy, and others make a return to Fortnite

Several streamers quit Fortnite for other games, such as Call of Duty: Warzone a few months back. The reason behind the switch was, they believed, that Fortnite was getting boring and slow to stream.

These players jumped ship but encountered a plethora of problems with Warzone too. The SBMM made it difficult for higher skilled players, and most of all streamers to play a game casually.

More importantly, hackers plagued Warzone, making it difficult for Infinity Ward to come up with an effective solution.

His first game back, NICKMERCS was enjoying his time out there. He revealed that he was rusty, but was seen genuinely enjoying his return to the Epic Games BR.

He also joined SypherPK for a duos game who has been the force behind getting the finest names back to Fortnite, which also includes Ninja.
