Fortnite mobile players will no longer need a mad web of cables and inputs thanks to controller support introduced in Fortnite's v7.30 patch. That obviously narrows the field of compatible Bluetooth controllers a bit, but gamepads like the ones in SteelSeries' Nimbus line and the Gamevice controller are some of the options iOS gamers have.

Other than the support for the controllers, Epic Games also released the support for 60Hz on certain Android devices.

Fortnite's recent 7.3 update added full controller support for iOS and Android devices making Gamevice the key to getting the exact same experience as Fortnite for console. The update has also added some new items like a weapon called Chiller Grenade.

Using the gamepad functionality will turn off phone rumbling, so you don't have to worry about your phone buzzing when playing the game. Epic is also adding a new "chiller" grenade shaped like a snowman, several vaulted guns, and an experimental tournament mode that allows you to edit each other's structures regardless of team status. So, overall this update is a complete package with some great additions in the game.

Yes, controller support on mobile devices is finally here, ten months after Fortnite first landed on iOS. We're hoping that means the majority of Android and iOS devices. In this mode, every weapon drop will be Legendary.

Increased amount of materials received from gathering. 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.

The seventh season of Fortnite: Battle Royale began on December 6, 2018, when an iceberg invaded the map and brought with it Ziplines, Frosty Flights, airplanes, and more.
