Dataminer has discovered something intriguing and of enormous value for those who enjoy playing Fortnite’s Battle Royale on a controller. Apparently, Epic Games added some files to the game, indicating a possible aim to assist changes. Aim assist has been a neverending topic on the Fortnite competitive scene, and each time there is a change to it, talks start whirling around the social media.
According to Mang0e, a Fortnite dataminer, Fortnite’s update 15.00 added a plugin called “TargetingSystem”. Even after a while, when everyone believed the aim assist in Fortnite had met its balance on the competitive scene, Epic Games decides to put their hands on this hard-lingering and tedious issue once again. Hence, the Aim Assist might get a slight change in the upcoming period. We honestly believe that this topic would never settle, as the controller aim assist has a history of intense domination over the PC.
More about the discovered file can be found below. The description line holds the following info:
Generic Targeting System to be used for gameplay. Abilities/Aim Assist/etc.
Fortnite is working on new Aim-Assist/Targeting.
In 15.00, a plugin called "𝑇𝑎𝑟𝑔𝑒𝑡𝑖𝑛𝑔𝑆𝑦𝑠𝑡𝑒𝑚" was added.
It's description: "Generic Targeting System to be used for gameplay. Abilities/Aim Assist/etc".
Hopefully this will help improve Aim Assist's current state. pic.twitter.com/2xDtFaqdFB
