The controller players are vastly outnumbered by PC players when it comes to Fortnite. Along with this, PC players can customize their controls to the fullest extent, giving them an upper hand. So, controller players need to take any advantage they can get when playing Fortnite. One of the biggest advantages one can get is copying one of the best controller players in the world, namely Nick “Nickmercs” Kolcheff. 

Nickmercs’ Fortnite Settings

Before customizing any keybind, you need to optimize the graphics that you’ll be playing on. If you don’t have the proper settings, then it won’t necessarily matter what keybinds you equip. Nickmercs takes a similar approach to other professional Fortnite players in that he turns most of his settings down to the minimum.
