Best Fortnite settings for PS4 to give you a competitive edge

Each game comes with its own set of default settings. While some settings can be applicable to most players, they still leave a lot of room for improvement for competitive players. By customizing your settings, you can tailor them for yourself and play to your strengths by doing so.

The settings can feel overwhelming when you first take a look, but the PS4 version of Fortnite has fewer customization options available, making it easier for players to go through all of them.

Unlike the PC version, you won’t be able to tinker graphical settings, apart from color options. As a console player, you should focus more on your controller settings and keybinds, since they directly affect how you interact with the game.

The following settings were inspired by what professional controller players, like Aydan and Sway, prefer while they dominate the Weekly Cash Cups, a series of weekly Fortnite tournaments held each week. Though professional players spend hours optimizing their settings, most of them are still up to personal preference. Don’t hesitate to make any changes you see fit to personalize the following settings.

Here’re the best settings for Fortnite on PS4.

Video settings

  • Brightness: 120 percent
    • Increasing the brightness can help you locate enemies faster. You can tweak your brightness settings either via the in-game menu, or your monitor’s/TV’s brightness settings. 
  • User Interface Contrast: 1x
    • This setting adjusts the contrast ratio throughout the user interface, which shouldn’t impact your gameplay in any way.
  • Color Blind Mode: Pronatope
  • Color Blind Mode Strength: Six
    • You don’t have to be color blind to use these settings. Most professional players, including the World Cup winner Bugha, prefer the Pronatope colorblind setting, which makes spotting enemies easier than the default color set. The other colorblind options are in demand too, players like Clix and Sway prefer the Tritanope setting, meaning that you should play a couple of games to test each of them…
