Did Scoped and Co1azo actually carry Tfue in Fortnite?

In hindsight, it is clear that Tfue was being sarcastic with the video’s title and thumbnail. Both A1 Scoped and Co1azo are exceptional controller players, but Tfue’s gameplay was enough to prove his mastery of keyboard and mouse.

Tfue also included a camera angle to showcase his lightning-fast reflexes on the keyboard. To say the least, it was a delight for the fans to watch the veteran dominating lobbies yet again.

The undying debate on ‘Keyboard and mouse vs controller’

Surprisingly, Tfue has a long history of defending keyboard and mouse gaming setups over controllers. The streamer believes that playing on a controller is much easier because they’re exclusively made for gaming, while keyboards aren’t.

Earlier this year, he even tweeted that aim assist on controllers ruined Fortnite for mouse and keyboard players.

While a lot of players agree with Tfue’s statement, others feel that competing professionally is more difficult on a controller. Fortnite’s competitive scene has witnessed a surge of controller players since last year; naturally, a lot of  keyboard and mouse pros have expressed their concerns.
