Fortnite mobile now supports controllers!

Fortnite mobile now supports controllers!

It supports L3/R3 fire buttons on the joysticks and is pitched as a full-featured gaming and drone controller.

If you happen to any of the three devices mentioned above then you are set to enjoy the 60 fps goodness on your device.

Using the gamepad functionality will turn off phone rumbling, so you don't have to worry about your phone buzzing when playing the game. But controlling the game - even with the rather expansive 6.5-inch display of the iPhone XS Max - using on-screen controls is just not as productive as using a mouse/keyboard or a gamepad on PCs and consoles.

That's not all we have to look forward to in Fortnite 4.30, though.

With the holidays falling just a few weeks after the start of season seven, Fortnite developer Epic Games announced via a blog post that it planned to push back the end of the season two weeks, setting the end date for February 28.

As of update 7.30 for Fortnite, four weapons were Vaulted: the bolt-action sniper rifle, burst rifle, heavy shotgun, and SMG (common, uncommon, and rare).

The Chiller Grenade was one of the new items to be added in Fortnite's v7.30 patch. The Chiller Grenade is a grenade that resembles a snow man and knocks players back with a freezing blast, causing them to slip and fall on the icy ground. This affects enemies, allies, and vehicles, so expect an especially slippery match next time you play. In this mode, every weapon drop will be Legendary.

There's also a whole host of bug fixes and technical tune ups, such as the Grenade gaining a fuse sound and the UI getting an overhaul.

With prices starting at $59.95, Gamevice provides lightning-fast control to video games and mobile controlled gadgets for popular iOS and Android smartphones or tablets on the market.
