BEST Binds For EVERY Controller Fortnite Player! (PS4 + Xbox Controller Fortnite Binds)

Hey what is going on guys, in this video today
we’re gonna be going over the best custom binds for controller Fortnite players. And like I always do with these custom bind
videos, that means all the different types of controller players will be covered: non-claw
non-paddle players, players who use any type of a controller with paddles, and finally
regular controller players that play claw. And what I noticed based on my last video
is that it seems as time goes on, more and more players have gotten paddles on their
controller. so in this video I’m gonna put more of an
emphasis than usual on what specific buttons and actions you should bind those paddles
to. I’ll put timestamps on the screen right now
for the 3 different sections of this video so feel free to skip to whichever part you
need, and without further ado, let’s get right into it. Alright, so let’s start this video off by
going over the best binds for the non-claw non-paddle players. And I’m actually going to be giving 2 different
sets of binds here. The first one is for both xbox and ps4 players,
while the 2nd one is PS4 only and you’ll see why when we get to that shortly. So for the first set, it’s the more typical
binds that I believe I’ve shared on this channel before. It all starts with L3/left stick as edit which
also requires you to use sprint by default. For regular controller players with no paddles,
L3 edit is by far the best option in my opinion. As long as you hold the controller normally
your left thumb should always be sitting on that button, so it makes a lot of sense to
use it as your edit. Then other than that the rest of this stuff
here is pretty standard. Toggle pickaxe is Y/Triangle, jump is A/X,
switch mode is B/circle, and as I highlighted in a recent video, for right stick/R3 you
wanna make sure that bind is crouch only and not crouch/repair, and then you can just make
right on the d-pad repair since that’s defaultly the button for those useless squad commands. What that does is it allows you to crouch
faster in general and also enables you to crouch peak if you choose to do so. Then as we move into the edit section, I think
you definitely wanna use RT/R2 to select the squares while editing but confirm and reset
edit are more preferance. In my opinion the better combination in terms
of efficency is what you see on the screen: confirm edit with LT/L2 and reset edit with
RB/R1. But switching those last 2 around is pretty
much just as good so it would instead be confirm edit with RB/R1 and reset edit with LT/L2. At the end of the day I’d just go with whatever
feels more comfortable there. Now I know that some people don’t really love
L3/left stick edit for a few different reasons. It isn’t a ton of people but I’ve heard some
players say that it hurts their thumb after they’ve been playing for a few hours, and
a small amount of people say pressing on the stick is hard to do very quickly multiple
times in a row, so it makes double and triple edits a little more difficult. Unfortunately for non-paddle regular grip
xbox players there really isn’t a viable alternative to L3 edit. But for for PS4 players I have another option
for you guys which really only changes 1 thing, instead of L3 being your edit button you instead
use the PS4 touchpad for edit. I believe shah is the most popular controller
player that does this, and apparently it is a viable alternative. Also what this gives you the option to do
even though I personally wouldn’t reccomend it is make L3 your jump button since you’re
no longer using it for anything. It’s something that some non-paddle non-claw
players like to do because it allows them to jump and aim at the same time since they
don’t have to move their finger on the right thumbstick, but the reason I don’t reccomend
it is because if you go to play a different game that doesn’t have custom binds,,,then
you’re gonna be trying to jump around with L3 and it’s gonna totally ruin your experience
with that game. But at the end of the day it’s your choice
whether or not you wanna do that. Now let’s move onto the binds for players
who use a controller with a certain amount of paddles. So first I’m gonna show you guys the base
binds, and then talk about which buttons I would bind to paddles depending on whether
you’re using 1, 2, 3, or even 4. So in my opinion the best edit button in the
game is L3/left stick since Ayour left thumb should always be sitting on that button which
it easy to press. Then other than that the rest of this stuff
you see here is pretty standard. Toggle pickaxe Y/Triangle, jump is A/X, switch
mode B/circle, and for right stick/R3 make sure you use the crouch only bind and not
crouch + repair. What that basically does is it enables you
to crouch much faster which is obviously beneficial, and then you can just make right on the d-pad
repair since that button is normally used for nothing important. Then onto the edit section, I always reccomend
using RT/R2 to select the squares while editing, but confirm and reset edit come down to preference. I think the slightly better combination in
terms of efficency is what you see on the screen confirm edit with LT/L2 and reset edit
with RB/R1. But you can also switch those around to be
confirm edit with RB/R1 and reset edit with LT/L2, it really just comes down to what you
prefer. A quick alternative I also offered in the
last section for PS4 players is that if you don’t wanna use L3 as edit for whatever reason,
you can switch edit to touchpad instead. I’m not a PS4 player myself so I can’t give
a full opinion on that, but apparently it’s very viable and a lot of people like using
touchpad as their edit button. So now let’s get into the paddles. For 1 paddle players it’s simple enough you
wanna make it be jump which in these binds are A/X, simple enough. For 2 paddles, I think the best bet is to
make 1 paddle jump and the other one switch mode. B/Circle is a bit of a tough button to reach
normally and it’s something you use a lot, so binding it to a paddle makes a lot of sense. For 3 paddles I would reccomend going with
jump, switch mode, and then edit as your 3rd one. This is something that can be especially appealing
if you don’t like left stick edit. And finally for 4 paddles I’d go jump, switch
mode, edit, and then either pulling out your pickaxe or reloading/interacting. I personally believe 4 paddles is really not
worth the effort it takes to learn it, but there are some pros out there that do use
4 paddles. And the final thing that we’re gonna cover
in this video are the best binds for players who play claw. And I’m actually going to be sharing 2 options
which are fairly similar but change 1 important thing. So even though I personally have never played
claw in my life, I frequently talk to a lot of really good players that do. And it’s kinda crazy because I feel like the
majority of the top claw players all have pretty similar binds, which I would say is
a good thing because it means they’re very effective. So for the first option, the important binds
here are edit is bound to Y/triangle, switch mode is bound to B/circle, jump is a on xbox
X on PS4, toggle pickaxe is bound to left stick which means you do need sprint by default
enabled for these binds to work, and finally as I’ve already said in every other section,
make sure your right stick/r3 bind is crouch and not crouch/repair because it will enable
you to crouch faster. Then you can just do what I did and bind repair
to right on the d-pad which only replaces the totally useless squad commands feature. Then we move onto the editing portion of the
binds. You have the good ol’ reliable R2/RT select
edit, L2/LT confirm edit, and RB/R1 reset edit. But as I’ve said in all the other sections,
flipping confirm to RB/R1 and reset to L2/LT is pretty much equally as viable, so feel
free to do that if you feel it’s more comfortable. The 2nd set of claw binds is exactly the same
as option #1 with only 1 thing changed. Instead of having edit bound to Y/triangle
and switch mode bound to B/circle you would actually flip those like you see on screen
right now. Apparently noto all claw players grip the
controller the exact same way, so for some people b/circle edit will be better and more
comfortable while for others Y/triangle edit will be. Just off the top of my head of the claw players
that I know, I believe ex and inno use B/circle as edit and Y/triangle as switch mode while
unknownarmy uses the opposite. Don’t quote me on that but it just goes to
show that both are absolutely viable. 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

you? Do you a non-claw non-paddle player, a non-claw
with paddles player, or a claw player? Be sure to leave a like, leave a comment,

Kenneth LeBouton · January 27, 2020 at 10:56 pm

I personally play on an Xbox elite controller with 4 paddles. It only took me 2 weeks to learn, and the 4th paddle is amazing. I bound select trap to right stick, and place trap to x, which is bound to a paddle. Amazing binds, and super easy to learn if you play at least 4 hours a week.

Kenneth LeBouton · January 27, 2020 at 10:58 pm

Jesse Wilburn · January 28, 2020 at 6:35 pm

Young Snow · January 29, 2020 at 11:50 am

Square for editing is the best thing for regular ps4 players if needed add me on insta @youngsnow_official and I’ll gladly share my keybinds with u

ivooo · January 29, 2020 at 1:30 pm

touchpad gang 🙂

musse · January 29, 2020 at 2:39 pm

Bruh u said there will be binds for ps4 specificly i cant find it?

Aj Trevino · January 29, 2020 at 3:27 pm

Switch jump with crouch…you can shoot and adjust at the same time 😀😀 I also switched O with L1. Takes about a week to get use to but I've gotten way better

Unknown 55999 · January 29, 2020 at 5:11 pm

Touchpad better for ps4 trust

# XXX · January 29, 2020 at 7:39 pm

I do X reset Y confirm

Bridger · January 30, 2020 at 1:27 am

I’d suggest putting reset edit on LB and putting confirm edit on LT. it’s just more comfortable for me as a claw player.

thebossrigo Rigo9911 · January 30, 2020 at 1:39 am

So I copied the binds but my L3 on combat and edit mode always change. Can't get the binds to save like the video. Am I doing g something wrong?

Bronson Lightfoot · January 30, 2020 at 3:07 am

XSweatyGioX 7 · January 30, 2020 at 3:50 am

On the first binds on 1:00 can I use right stick to reset

How SwayyOshea · January 30, 2020 at 4:19 am

Tell me how these binds sounds??
Left paddle: crouch
Right paddle: switch mode

Any other ideas ?)

Jcr_ · January 30, 2020 at 5:16 am

Why does he talk like that 😂

XD SadLife · January 30, 2020 at 6:36 am

On Xbox you can go to your settings and change all your buttons on your controller just its changed for the whole console like if I change a with L3 in YouTube or Netflix I would click L3 to press play or to click the show I want to watch

Benvilla07 · January 30, 2020 at 7:42 am


Oilers4264 · January 30, 2020 at 5:25 pm

I play 4 paddles
Top Left- Edit
Bottom- Left-Builds
Top Right- Interact/Reload
Bottom Right- Jump
A- is now pick axe
Y-is emote
X and B are unused because of the paddles

Only thing I’ve had trouble with is my edit resets which is still R3 and it’s awful, of all the remapping I’ve done this one has been the hardest to change.
Anyone have any good ideas for what it should be?

Edit: Using Xbox Elite 2.0 btw

YX Sckely · January 30, 2020 at 5:40 pm

bike Life · February 3, 2020 at 7:20 pm

Hey you should do a video specifically for the ps4 back button attachment dropping tomorrow (custom binds )

COMMON ENEMY2 · February 4, 2020 at 9:33 am

I have edit and switch mode on paddles and jump on left stick

HC · February 6, 2020 at 7:33 pm

I want to switch my jumping to L3 and switching mode to R3 ( I already have editing on touchpad) but then I'll have to bind crouching to one of the action buttons (circle or X) is it worth "sacrificing" crouch to switching mode or jumping any advice.

RoasX · February 7, 2020 at 1:59 am

What u think about 1 edit bind

Georg Khoshaba · February 7, 2020 at 3:50 pm

R4R3ST · February 11, 2020 at 2:31 am

I'm on Nintendo scuf controller LOL

Marquis Fewell · February 11, 2020 at 6:15 pm

For those who use TOUCHPAD for edit. How can you makes edits on the run with out taking your right thumb off of R3?? Or is that a sacrifice you have to make??

Red Ninja · February 12, 2020 at 5:26 pm

I use a scuf vantage with 6 extra buttons on it😂

DeathGrinder B · February 12, 2020 at 8:47 pm

great video, im a noob to the game. really started playing because it has mouse suport on ps4, but I heard the aim assist was ridic and it is, so I swapped to controller. i made my left paddle to enter build mode. and jump for right paddle. ok so when u map a function to the paddle. like my right paddle is x, so can I map something else to x or will it just make my right paddle do that also?

Olan Elam · February 13, 2020 at 5:39 pm


Godfrey Mhlanga · February 13, 2020 at 11:43 pm

How do you run?

Elvedin20 Alic · February 14, 2020 at 4:48 am

I play claw

m7ace · February 15, 2020 at 11:16 pm

So i use ps4 back attachment which has only 2 paddles and Left paddle is Edit which is left d-pad and Right paddle is Jump which is x so this good binds for 2 paddles? And r3 is switch mode

Xk Shadows · February 16, 2020 at 1:02 am

I need one hand claw and one side non claw flipped

Blubrrypi _ · February 16, 2020 at 2:17 pm

I use L3 for jump and not edit because it gives you the option to jump while still being able to aim freely and hit shotgun shots etc. Is there another button you could recommend to use as edit? Maybe the right stick?

Devin Waddell · February 18, 2020 at 12:59 am

4 paddles is lit

Javier Hernandez rojas · February 19, 2020 at 5:56 am

Gronky I watched this video when it came out I always wanted to change buy edit key bind but I felt like I was gonna suck and when I trued it today I got used to it after 30 min thx for the video keep it up

magicszn · February 19, 2020 at 2:01 pm

Hey gronky, I use r1 to select and r2 to confirm. I play with 4 finger meaning two on joystick and one on each of the buttons and triggers. Would that work fine?

Ethan Sweet · February 19, 2020 at 4:56 pm

I’m so glad I trickshotted when I was younger, because now I play claw on everything

killerdruid · February 21, 2020 at 1:08 am

Why does no one edit with right stick

ShinruXL · February 22, 2020 at 7:12 pm

NBS Exilus · February 25, 2020 at 4:44 pm

No matter what bond I switch my pickaxe to, it will always stay to triangle because I’m on PS4. Is this a bug or did epic intend for this to be a thing and does anyone know how to fix it?

AGamer Zero54 · February 25, 2020 at 6:12 pm

Gronky show many paddles do you use and what do you have them mapped to

Ahhhbraithe · February 26, 2020 at 7:06 am

Roockie117 · February 29, 2020 at 5:00 am

I just received my elite series 2 and I'm starting to practice with 4 paddles. I'm a bot and haven't seen my building that slow since season 3. My fingers are just so used to moving off the stick to press the buttons, uggghh. Gotta keep going, though.

Bellasaurus Rawr · February 29, 2020 at 6:32 pm

I'm using a infinity pro 2 paddles controller. Even when I played claw I always used edit on my L3 BUT I always friggin click it on accident in the middle of fights.

I may have to try and use touchpad as my edit :/

Aman · March 1, 2020 at 7:50 am

Anyone else who really dislikes editing with L3? I edit with triangle (No claw)

NOTCyclone · March 1, 2020 at 10:53 pm

I am a claw player and am comfortable with circle edit and triangle edit so which one should I use
