Fortnite pro settings mouse sensitivity keybinds

Fortnite Mouse Settings and Keybindings Used by Pros [July 2021]

Practice, practice, practice. Fortnite is all about practicing and then putting into… practice everything you learned. In essence, Fornite can be split into three individual skill sets, which you then have to meddle together. These skillsets are aiming, building, and editing. In my mind, becoming a decent Fortnite player takes at least 6 months of constant practicing in Fortnite Aim courses, Fortnite Building & Editing course, while also playing Battle Royale & Arena Solos, Duos, Trios & Squads.

I don't know if the cute graphics fools you, but Fortnite takes a lot of time to master. A lot of boring time even. It's no surprise that the top esports players in the world are paid so well, and Fortnite players even more so. Even following the action when watching a live stream can be a challenge for a novice.

This post does not aim to teach you how to become a good Fortnite player. However, one way of getting better at a game is imitation. Not just by playing the same games modes but also by studying what pro Fortnite players do.

So this post is about the gaming mice and keyboards Fortnite pros use because the gear is essential in competitive games.

Even more so, this guide is about the mouse sensitivity settings and keybindings they use. You can also find cross-game mouse sensitivity settings converters.

I will list the settings and gear used by some of the best players globally, and I will explain to you how they helped me find my own best keybindings so that I at least can start getting used to them and eventually become a better player.

Make sure to also check our Fortnite Codes list. If you are interested in other battle royale games too, you can check our PUBG Mobile codes list and our Garena Free Fire codes list.

Let's get started then.

[Sentinels] Bugha

Kyle Giersdorf, better known by his online alias Bugha, is an American streamer and esports player who is best known for playing Fortnite. Bugha is the Fortnite World Cup 2019 solos champion and one of the best Fortnite players in the world, as you'd expect.

Bugha's Mouse

Bugha uses a Logitech G Pro X Superlight Black mouse.

Bugha's Keyboard

Bugha uses the Steelseries Apex Pro KTL keyboard.

Bugha's Fortnite Keybindings

His building key bindings are very similar to the default key bindings of the game. I'm impressed by anyone who can play with these bindings, especially when they can become a world champion, as I find it very hard, and you pretty much have to use your thumb and pointer while moving around with the other three fingers.

I have no idea how much practice it takes, but, amazingly, he can play with these.

[Faze Clan] Mongraal

Kyle “Mongraal” Jackson is a Fortnite esports player, currently a player for FaZe Clan Europe. Mongraal is one of the best European players in Fortnite and one my favorites too.

Mongraal's Mouse

Mongraal uses a Logitech G402 mouse. This is the most affordable mouse you will find in this list.

I'm always impressed when people use the same targeting and scope sensitivity, but I haven't played Fortnite with a gaming mouse yet.

Mongraal's Keyboard

Mongraal uses the Steelseries Apex Pro KTL keyboard (just like Bugha above):

Mongraal's Keybindings

Mongraal is an awesome builder, but as you can see, he builds with the mouse. He also plays with tilted keyboard positioning. This definitely requires some ambidexterity as he uses both hands in full force while building. One massive benefit of this approach, though, contrary to others, is that he can use Q and X for fast weapon 4 & 5 swaps. That's pretty neat!

Nate Hill's Keyboard

Nate Hill uses the Steelseries Apex Pro KTL keyboard. Steelseries is one of Faze Clan's sponsors, so all the team's players use this keyboard (as far as I know).

Nate Hill's Keybindings

As you can see, Nate Hill is a keyboard builder, and I think his keybindings are among the most sensible and easiest to grab on this list. How good you can become using them is a different story.

[TSM] Myth

More commonly known as Myth or TSM Myth, Ali Kabbani is an American Twitch streamer and professional Fortnite Battle Royale player. As of December 2020, he is among the most popular streamers on Twitch with over 7 million followers and over 127 million views.

Myth's Mouse

Myth uses a more affordable Logitech G703 mouse.

Higher targeting sensitivity than scope sensitivity. That's a unique one.

Myth's Fortnite Keybinds

Myth is another great builder and his settings seem very natural to me. He builds both with the mouse and the keyboard, and Q is awesome for fast wall building (I use Q too). I would expect him to use E and the Mouse Button 5 for the stairs and floor, but instead, he uses the default C for stair building and the mouse button to build floors. He also utilizes fast weapon switching by using his mouse wheel up and down buttons.

Turner Tenney (born January 2, 1998), better known by his online alias Tfue, is an American streamer and esports player best known for playing Fortnite.

Tfue's Fortnite Keybinds

Tfue's keybindings make a lot of sense for me, and I based mine upon keys. The only thing that confuses me is why Tfue still uses C for building instead of sticking to all the upper row buttons (let's say Q, E, R, which I have).

He definitely knows better, of course, and he uses the mouse only for the Trap and the icing on the cake (the roof). I consider these settings the first “human” ones in this list.

Ninja's Fortnite Keybinds

Ninja is immensely successful, and he has the most followers on Twitch as of May 2021. He strikes the perfect balance between the mouse and the keyboard in building (50/50), and well… Weapon slots 4 and 5 are closer to our fingers than numbers 4 and 5. Seems pretty solid.
