ADVANCED Controller Fortnite Shotgun Aim Tutorial! (PS4/Xbox Fortnite Shotgun Tips)


Hey what is going on guys, in this video today
we’re gonna be going over how to improve your shotgun gameplay in Fortnite. About a month ago I made an aim tip video
that was mainly focused on how to properly take advantage of aim assist. And at the end of that video, I asked you
guys to share what specific aspect of aiming you most struggle with in Fortnite. So, I read over a bunch of those comments
and probably the most common thing I saw, is that a lot of people struggle with shotgun
aim specifically. And, I can totally understand why that’s something
that so many people want to improve on. Close range shotgun fights are without a doubt
the most important and most aim-dependent fights in all of Fortnite. No matter how great your IQ, positioning,
and building are, you’re simply gonna have to be able to win a 50/50 shotgun fight every
once in a while. And especially if you land in super populated
towns with a lot of buildings like tilted, retail, or pleasant, you’re gonna really struggle
to even survive the first couple minutes of a game if you aren’t to hit shotgun shots. So, hopefully this video will help you guys
do exactly that, and without further ado let’s get right into it. Alright, so if you’ve watched any of my aim
tip videos or just shotgun tip videos in general, you’ve probably heard some of the more basic/common
shotgun tips. You don’t really ever want to aim down sights,
you always want to position yourself to where you can take advantage of left-side peaking,
always aim for the head, try to stay mobile at all times in those close range fights,
and try to avoid as many 50/50 shotgun fights as possible by using your builds to block
shots. Even though those tips are basic, I don’t
want to make it seem like they aren’t incredibly important. What I commonly see with my friends who are
just casual players trying to improve, is that, for the first 2-3 games after I tell
them, they’ll make an effort to implement tips like that into their game. But, after those first 2-3 games, they’ll
kinda forget to keep doing it, and it’ll eventually just fade out of their gameplay entirely. So, even though those things may seem super
basic, don’t just gloss over and forget about them. Because if you don’t have the fundamentals
down, the more advanced shotgun tips I’m about to share won’t really help you as much. Alright, so as I’m sure you guys know, one
of the most important skills to have to be a great shotgun player is the ability to consistently
hit headshots. Especially now with any pump blue rarity or
higher pump shotgun doing 200+ headshot damage at point blank range, it’s now more important
than ever to prioritize headshots over body shots. But, obviously that’s much easier said then
done. Here’s a really simple tip that if you guys
can get master, I guarantee it will help you hit more shotgun headshots and also just generally
be more accurate. A mistake that soooo many players make, is
that they keep their crosshair positioned way too low whenever they’re running/walking
around in-game. I’ll explain what I mean by that in a second,
but first, I want you guys to watch this clip from my friend that I think illustrates the
problem very well. I’m going to zoom in and slow the clip down
a bit so it’s a little easier to follow. I want you to really focus on the positioning
of his shotgun’s crosshair here, and also, what he does when he goes to take the shot. What you just saw in that clip was basically
a textbook example of how that bad habit of keeping your crosshair too low while moving,
will have a MAJOR negative impact on your shotgun aim as a whole. Because that player kept his crosshair so
low while running forward, he was basically lined up with his enemy’s foot when he ran
through the door and they first came face to face. Now, I’ve told my friend about a million times
that he should be going for headhosts in every shotgun fight he gets into, so, instead of
just shooting the foot, he instead goes for a last second semi-flick shot towards the
enemy’s head. It was a valiant attempt, but as you guys
saw, that play ended up resulting in a 21 damage shot with I believe 2/10 total pellets
hitting. If you keep your crosshair positioned too
low when engaging in shotgun fights, you’re going to be forced to make a choice between
2 less than ideal options every single time. You can either keep your crosshair low and
just go for body shots, or if you want to go for a headshot, you’ll do the same thing
my friend did in that clip, and basically gamble your life on a last prayer second flick
shot. Also think about it like this. If you keep your crosshair at body level or
below, when you see an enemy you’re going to need to first: adjust your aim left and
right so you’re lined up horizontally with the enemy, and then second: adjust your aim
up and down to try to hit a headshot. However, if you can get into the habit of
always keeping your crosshair at head level even while you’re moving, you only need to
worry about adjusting left and right. This not only makes aiming with shotguns easier
and leads to more headshots but, it also makes it so that don’t need to do those split-second
flick shots, which are very difficult to consistently hit on controller/console. So now here’s another clip from the same player
that was in the first clip, but this time, he is going to keep his crosshair at head
level even while moving. And again, pay attention the crosshair placement
and also, just how much easier and smoother it all looks compared to the first clip. This issue of keeping your crosshair too low
while moving is way more common than you probably think it is. I’ve noticed that it’s pretty much a natural
thing for the majority of players. It’s finny because whenever I give people
this tip to instead keep it at head level, I get told that it feels really weird, and
almost like you have a new line of vision that makes it harder to see in front of you. That’s okay, if you’re doing it correctly
it will seem annoying at first, but eventually you will get used to it. And keep in mind, a lot of you guys have probably
been playing Fortnite for over a year now, which means for over a year you’ve been running
around with your crosshair at leg/feet level. So, it’s going to take a lot of focus and
effort to correct that problem. You can’t just pay attention to it for 2-3
games and then expect your muscle memory to be fixed just like that. So now that we’ve fully covered that super
important tip for shotgun aim, let’s talk about the tfue classic/tfue special. This technique is another more advanced type
of shotgun tip, thats so important to learn when it comes to taking that next step as
a Fortnite player. For those of you guys that don’t know what
the tfue classic is, it’s basically a technique done when you have about 2-3 levels of high
ground over a player, and you want to shoot them with your shotgun. And how you do it is you take a shotgun shot
while jumping forward, and then place a connected floor piece under your feet so it catches
you and stops you from falling. And there are 2 main reasons why this is so
effective. 1: because you’re able to get off shots while
still keeping high ground and 2: it enables you to shoot from angles which may not be
possible by just sitting on top of that high ground. My explanation of specifically how to do it
may not have been the best, so here’s a quick little clip thats a solid example. So yeah, the tfue classic is something that
you’ll see me do in my gameplays all the time. It’s probably a little easier on PC but its
definitely totally doable on controller as well with a little practice. It actually used to be harder a few months
ago because of the shotgun delay that was added at the beginning of season 5, but, it’s
a little easier now mainly because of the builder pro builds instantly setting. And the final thing I want to cover in this
video today is a super quick discussion on sensitivity related to shotgun aim. So, since you’re really never going to be
ADSing with shotgun, the only sensitivity that matters is your X and Y sensitivity. I can comments all the time asking questions
like “I play on 8-8 sensitivity, is that too high? Or I play on 5.5-5 is that too low?” So here’s my general advice when it comes
to X and Y sensitivity for shotgun aim, and just general non-ADS aim as well. Even though X and Y sensitivity goes from
0-10 in Fortnite, I would guess that the vast majority of really good controller players
play on somewhere in the range from 6-8. That doesn’t mean all of them but, definitely
a lot of them. Does that mean that YOU NEED to play on 6-8
X and Y? No, it doesn’t, but I would definitely recommend
it. And especially now that you can have a custom
building sensitivity with the building sensitivity multiplier, there’s nothing wrong with playing
on something like 6-6 and then just making your building sensitivity higher. However, I would say that the bear minimum
for X and Y sensitivity is 5-5. Anything lower than that, and it’s simply
too low to be able to track sprinting and jumping players in shotgun fights. It may sound a bit odd but here’s how I kinda
helped my friend find the best sensitivity for him. I made him start on 6.5-6.5, and then just
had him move either up a or down by .5 at a time depending on if he felt his sensitivity
was too slow or too fast. But, if you get to a point where you’re at
5-5 and you still feel like you can’t control it, I would recommend struggling until you
get used to that rather than going lower and into the 4s. So, I hope you guys enjoyed this video and
if you watched the entire thing be sure to let me know with a comment down in the comment
section below. This video was about improving your shotgun
aim in Fortnite, so I wanna know, what do you think about your own personal shotgun
aim? Is it a strength in your game, a weakness,
or something in-between. Be sure to leave a like, leave a comment,

  1. Can you do a vid on the glitch where you pull out the pump and it doesn’t shoot, same with after you edit or build.

  2. I saw how he recommended 6-8 X and Y sensitivity… I play on 10X and 10Y and 1.685 Build and 17.00 Edit. Da hell

  3. 1 more tip that isn’t that useful but can be abused is once you land and get your weapons farm mats this will help you a lot if your landing at a area with a big population like tilted

  4. I need to improve my shotgun aim but sometimes in fight I press the shoot button for shotgun it dose not shoot or I need to find a good sense for build and aim and mostly shotgun aim

  6. I need help with my ar aim I can’t hit someone if it’s me with an ar and someone with a gray pistol they would win

  7. If you struggle with 5.5 then you deserve to be dead, and the lowest sensitivity for a good player is 7…

  8. Play on the switch, casually. With both control sticks and gyro for mainly Y axis

    Definitely shotgun aim hardest. And tend to only use AR for most kills.

    Getting shotgun and building mixed together properly would make squad and solo a lot more enjoyable.

  9. For sure, I eat he's the whole video. I know that my AR and SMG game is ok, and its improving so I know that is getting better. But I'm still having trouble with my shotgun aiming. Either when the player moving and especially when the players jjumping. VCa you help me. I on console

  10. I play on switch 🕹
    I can build p fast 🌲➡️🏠
    I can hit 200m snipes 🥶
    But i cant FRICKING use a shotgun 😟

  11. You earned my sub! I went from having a 20% chance of hitting a headshot to a 98% success rate with the “keep the crosshair head level” tip! I one tapped 2 kids in a match i just played. With a tac. Thats how good that tip is. Thank you so much!

    I also learned a tip for some people like me who cant hit jump shots! Shoot, then jump. Shoot, then jump. Works like a charm!

  12. When I watch your stream with my friends, they keep saying that the camera angle is trash, but what they don’t realize is that you are avoiding damage and keeping your shotgun aim perfect

  13. I fucking suck at shotgun aim and smg tracking but good at ars should I lower my sens I'm at a 7 sensitivity

  14. Hooe this helps me cause i'm reakky bad with my shot gun aim its what makes me bad at the game my building is the only good thing

  15. I enjoyed it, but when I shot my shotgun and place a wall and edit it takes a second to shot compared to others who can shoot multiple times quickly

  16. I do not understand English I am translating can someone explain me the tricks in Spanish please?

  17. Me: watches the video and gets motivated to kill more

    Also me: plays fortnite and gets f*** by a noob

    Also also me: rewatches the whole video

  18. When i fail my shot i Change my sens EVERY TIME. I Know thats bad but i keep doing that.i play on 9x 8y sens and i hit my shots.but the Next day i switch it cuz i fail lots of shots. in 1 Fortnite season i change my sens like 50 Times.

  19. i’m good at building my AR aim is good enough my shotgun aim is cheeks my IQ is bad and i started in season 3 and no solo wins… help me i suck
