Fortnite's a game filled with controls, more so than most games out there. If you're someone who wants to know exactly what each button press and trigger pull entails, look no further than the sections below.

If you own the game and want to get off to a flying start, no matter if you’re holding a controller or using mouse and keyboard, we’ve listed all the control schemes, as well as few rebinding tips too.

When you're done here, make sure you check out our main Fortnite: Battle Royale guide, our tips for gearing up and finding loot quickly, and even our guide to gettings the best performance on your system!
