You can now play Fortnite Mobile with Bluetooth Controllers

Fortnite hit the AppStore back in 2018 and have seen some major updates. However, none can compare to the fact that you are able to play Fortnite on your iOS or Android device using a Bluetooth connected controller.

Fortnite was updated to version 7.30 today and comes with the capability of gaming with SteelSeries Nimbus, Gamevice controller and even the SteelSeries Stratus XL.

There are a number of updates in this version but the Bluetooth controller stands out more than any. I’ve had a SteelSeries Nimbus since October last year, so I am one that has been waiting for a long time.

  • Mobile Controller support
    • Android: most of Bluetooth controller adapters, such as SteelSeries Stratus XL, Gamevice, XBox1, Razer Raiju, and Moto Gamepad.
