Using an Aimbot in Fortnite is an illegal practice. Third-party software that alters the game in any way may ban your account.
And while it’s illegal, you can use them. However, you must buy the software, install it on your Windows PC, and hope for the best.
Even some popular Fortnite content creators, such as Faze Jarvis, have used Aimbot software on their videos. He was banned from Fortnite afterward, and he has mostly disappeared from social media since.
However, Epic Games is making hacks increasingly difficult, and they take severe steps against those that do. For example, if you visit the r/FortniteHack subreddit, they recommend using a VPN, a spoofer, and a cleaner, all of which will cost you money.
Using Aimbots in Fortnite
Rather than using “Aimbots,” we recommend using “Soft Aim” programs instead. Aimbots lock your cursor (the gun’s pointer) to players on the screen, and it also tracks players through walls and across great distances.
The latter is why Aimbots are easy to detect for players and Epic Games alike. Moreover, given how Aimbots give you so many advantages, the steps Epic Games take against users that utilize these programs are severe.
Specifically, they ban IPs, which means you wouldn’t be able to play Fortnite on the same internet again. For example, if other family members in your house play Fortnite in the future, they won’t be able to open a new account either.
A Soft Aim program slightly aims the gun toward an opponent. It does so while trying to mimic professional gameplay, so it’s harder to detect. Most likely, other players won’t report you or ban you.
Using a Soft Aim requires some digging, and we should add that any third-party hacking tool is unsafe. For example, some of these hacks come with trojans and other viruses.
Still, we’ve found a site that compiles trustworthy Soft Aim programs. Check this site for various private Discord Servers where you would get the hack.
In any case, what you need to do is find a seller online, join its Discord server, buy the software, and install it on your computer.
After you install it, open it, open Fortnite, and press Alt+F4 typically. That will enable the cheat.
Enable Aim Assist on Console
Console players also have the option of enabling the “Aim Assist” feature. You’d find the option on Settings-Controller Options. Scroll down to Aim Assist Strength and select a percentage (from o to 100%). It also works on a PC if you play with a controller.
Recently, though, some players have reported a bug regarding Aim Assist. If you follow some specific steps, the game way gives you an “Aimbot” advantage. Do this:
- On the Lobby, select the Menu icon at the top-left
- Go to Settings
- Go to Controller Settings
- Enable “Use Advanced Options“
- On Advanced – Sensitivity, put Aim Assist Strenght on 50% (or anything between 0 to 50%)
- Play two games at least with this configuration
- Back in the lobby, go back to Controller options
- Set the Aim Assist Strenght to 100%
These steps will bug the aim assist in giving you more than the 100% the game promises.
