Gyro and ‘Flight Stick’ controller update available for Fortnite On Switch

Even for those of us who are not active players Fortnite, there’s no denying that the free-to-play juggling game has set high standards in world building, season passability, IP crossover, and control/accessibility options. The latest update, which will be available to all or soon, adds to control options on Switch and other gyroscope-compatible platforms.

The Switch has had gyroscopes targeting Fortnite since day one, but Epic Games claims that they will now be ‘stronger’. More intriguing is the addition of ‘Flick Stick’ controls; The video above is from its creator, Julian “Jibb” Smart, explaining how it works and explaining the in-game scenarios where it could be useful.

Here’s how you access these controls in-game (after it’s updated).

– Gyroscope: Turn the gyroscope control on or off in the “Touch and Motion” tab of the settings. Do this by turning “Gyro Aiming” on or off. When on, you will be able to control the camera by rotating the controller. This provides more accuracy than standard clubbing, but it’s not a complete replacement. Usually, players will still use the right stick for most of the camera controls while using the gyroscope for finer adjustments that are hard to do with the thumb.

– Flick Sticks: Also found under the “Touch and Motion” tab, turn on the slider so that when you point the right slider in a certain direction, the camera will quickly swipe in that direction. As this means you can no longer aim up or down with the right stick, this requires gyroscope aiming to be activated. Flick sticks are generally recommended for experienced gyro players, but some novice gyro players can pick it up quickly.

It’s a welcome addition, for sure – if you’re a regular Fortnite player on Switch, it might be worth a try.
