Fortnite’s legacy look controls are being removed soon
Epic Games has announced that it will be removing the “Use Legacy Look Controls” option from Fortnite later this week.
Last year, the developer released an update for Fortnite that introduced new aim assist options to the game. At the time, players were given the option to either use the new aim assist or continue using the original version, which was renamed to Legacy.
Following an upcoming update on March 13th, players will no longer be able to use this Legacy version of aim assist and will be forced to use either the Exponential or Linear options.
Players who still have “Use Legacy Look Controls” enabled when the update goes live will have their legacy sensitivity options automatically transferred over to the new settings. Epic Games noted that players can also copy their legacy sensitivity settings over ahead of time by selecting the “Copy from Legacy” option in the controller settings.
Fortnite is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
