We started with the basics, now let's move onto improving that aim. Nothing improves your aim in any game, but especially Fortnite, more than having the right thumbsticks. Everyone has different hand sizes, thumb lengths, and preferences. That’s why SCUF thumbsticks are interchangeable: to match your unique preference of comfort and playstyle.
Identify your Playstyle
Are you someone who likes to drop in a hotspot and run in guns blazing? Or are you someone who likes to plan out a strategy and take their time making their way to the top?
Whatever your preferred style, it’s a key part in what thumbsticks will suit you best.
Understanding Thumbstick Shape and Length
There are two parts to the thumbstick: its shape and its length.
Concave Thumbsticks are designed for more movement control.
Domed Thumbsticks are designed for more accuracy.
Short Thumbsticks are designed for quicker movement speed.
Tall Thumbsticks are designed to have more angle to play with and more precise aiming.
Selecting Your Thumbsticks
For aggressive players, like shotgun players, we recommend a short concave thumbstick on the left and a short domed thumbstick on the right. You’ll be quick to move and ready to quickly aim.
For defensive players, like sniper players, we recommend a short concave thumbstick on the left and a tall domed thumbstick on the right. You can still move quickly, but also be the most accurate when aiming.
Try out different thumbstick types and combinations to find the ones that fit your playstyle, or change it up when you’re in the mood for something different.
