Epic Games is introducing gyro-based motion controls for Fortnite on PC, PS4, and PS5. Having previously these on Nintendo Switch and Android versions, that's now being branched out to PlayStation and PC, which includes a new flick stick option.

Gyro allows Fortnite players to control the camera by turning their controller and better yet, this new option is fully customisable. As such, you can set gyro controls to be active when aiming scoped weapons, as well as outright turning them off when building structures.

As for flick stick controls, Epic Games worked with flick stick creator Julian “Jibb” Smart, designing a system that lets you quickly "flip" the camera to another direction. This is supported with both DualShock 4 and DualSense controllers, and you can use these on PC too. That's been outlined in the video below:

Fortnite is available now on Nintendo Switch, PC, Android, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. While it's not officially available on iOS anymore, a recent cloud streaming attempt through Nvidia's GeForce Now service may soon see it return in an unofficial capacity.
