Best controller settings for Fortnite

In Fortnite, you need to be at the top of your game to secure a Victory Royale in as many matches as possible. Although it ultimately depends on your gameplay and skill, your settings play a huge role in determining your fate. It is often claimed that keyboard and mouse are superior to controllers when it comes to FPS games. However, this is not the case in Fortnite.
