Fortnite patch v7.30 adds controller support for mobile

Fortnite patch v7.30 adds controller support for mobile

Patch 7.30 for Fortnite came out today and now mobile players can enjoy Bluetooth controllers to play their game!Android users definitely will be getting more controller varieties including the Xbox One and Playstation 4 controllers.

While that sounds like an insane addition to the game (and it is, really) but there is a small thing which everyone should know: this support is limited to MFi-Certified controllers only. It is great to finally have controller support after a while where it seemed like it wasn't happening. But what about you?

Just the fact that Fortnite is able to run reasonably well on Android and iOS smartphones is quite the achievement; especially so with the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max which can run the game at a steady 60 fps.

Fortnite's latest update adds the extra gear and bug fixes we've come to expect from Epic's regular updates, but one surprising addition comes after a long wait.

Fortnite now has controller support and 60fps on select devices
Fortnite Adds MFi Controller Support

Having tested the new HID controller support over USB OTG with my trusty Logitech F310, I can say that it works just as well as it does on consoles or PC. In his spare time, when he is not playing computer games, you will see him writing reviews on different tech products or games.

The patch notes get into the specifics, saying that for Android, "most of Bluetooth controller adapters, such as SteelSeries Stratus XL, Gamevice, XBox1, Razer Raiju, and Moto Gamepad", are compatible. So if you were anxious that this update only supports bluetooth controllers, don't fret as the HID support covers both corded and wireless options.

60Hz support for select Android models arrived in the same patch. Also, players who complete the Frostnite Challenge in Save The World will win the Spectral Blade.
