The best Fortnite settings for Xbox Series X/S

Fortnite’s transition to the console world was a rather bumpy one due to performance issues. Epic Games has come a long way since 2017, however, and Fortnite is now one of the best optimized titles on Xbox Series X/S.

Console players were still behind PC users when it came down to pure performance, but that took a turn with the release of new-gen consoles. Fortnite runs noticeably smoother on Xbox Series X/S, and players also have the option to unlock higher frame rates, getting them one step closer to PC players in terms of raw performance.

Aside from running Fortnite at higher frame rates, you have access to multiple in-game tweaks that can make it easier to spot enemies. Spending some time perfecting your sensitivity settings can also help your aim in the long run. Optimizing your settings will help you become a better player, helping you climb higher in Fortnite’s ranked ladder.

Here are the best Fortnite settings for Xbox Series X/S.
