A new Fortnite exploit allows you to use Aim Assist on mouse and keyboard.
Aim Assist is one of the most hotly debated topics in Fortnite. Epic has pushed all Fortnite players [into the same lobbies,[(https://fortnitetracker.com/article/687/skill-based-matchmaking-puts-all-fortnite-pla) which means console and PC players are facing off more frequently than ever before.
Despite all of the advantages PC players have, they still complain about Aim Assist on the controller. They hear people like Tfue complain about "controller aimbot," so they do the same, despite the fact that they almost certainly haven't practiced their aim as much as Tfue has.
Recent changes to Aim Assist have removed the "L2 spam" meta that controller players such as myself have used since Fortnite came out.
Now, it's much easier to track opponents on a controller without having to tap L2 with every shot. Aim Assist was buffed for controller players who are good at aiming and nerfed for controller players who relied on the L2 spam.
Aim Assist on Mouse and Keyboard
A new exploit has been found that allows players on mouse and keyboard to get aim assist as well. Ohhyy posted a video to YouTube and Reddit outlining how to get aim assist while using a mouse and keyboard.
I'm a console player so I haven't been able to test this method, but it appears as though all you have to do is plug in a controller, adjust the stick drift, enable the new aiming system, and go back to using a mouse and keyboard.
After that, your reticle will naturally gravitate towards your opponent.
This is a pretty big exploit, and hopefully, articles like this one and attention on Reddit will force Epic to patch it soon.
Players who use this exploit will have a massive advantage on everyone else. In the meantime, if you're someone who looks for the latest Fortnite exploits: here you go.
