Provided: play with the smartphone controller
Bluetooth is required to use a wireless controller on a smartphone. Once connected to the phone as a normal device, just open Fortnite and start a game to play without the inconvenient touch controls.
If connected to the controller, Fortnite will turn off the vibration for the effects of the game on the phone. For now Epic Games has provided a list of controllers compatible with mobile gaming (excluding Sony, it is not possible to use those normally used on PlayStation 4).
The compatible pads are :
- Android – Steelseries Stratus XL, Gamevice, Xbox, Razer Raiju, Moto Gamepad
- iOS – Steelseries Nimbus and Gamevice.
The controllers are third-party and quite familiar to PC Gaming fans, easily traceable also on Amazon. In addition to this, Epic Games has expanded its support to 60 HZ (which according to different users would make the possibility of victory higher): the models now supported are Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Huawei Honor View 20 and Huawei Mate 20 X.
