FORTNITE XIM APEX BUILDER PRO BINDS
« on: 09:52 AM - 06/16/18 »
Hello everybody,

I started using the Xim Apex a few days ago on my Xbox One S console to play Fortnite. Still been trying to figure out a button scheme to make it easier and effectively use the builder pro style. Please critique my layout and show me yours.

Mouse G502

DPI 4000
Pollining 500

Xim Apex

Hip 38
ADS 23

Button Configurations

Movement WSDA

Actions
Fire L-click
Aim R-click
Crouch E
Sprint Lshift
Next WPN Scroll up (mouse)
Previous WPN Scroll down (mouse)
Jump Space
Build mode Back button (mouse)
Reload R
Harvest WPN Click Scroll Wheel

This is the first time I have every used a mouse and keyboard to play any kind of video game. I just want to know what everybody's thoughts are on my layout and if they have a more effective way at building. Sometimes with the building I feel flustered using these keys but can't find a more simpler way.

Imo you shouldn't have next and previous weapon on scroll wheel as I found it easy to over or under scroll. It's less consistant than just having a button.

I personally use my 2 side mouse buttons for these actions but using q and e is also popular.

At the end of the day it's whatever you feel comfortable with though.

Just in case you don't know (as you didn't mention your sync) you can enable expert mode in the options then select a sync. I would recommend common for fortnite but again it's preference.

How do you enable sync exactly?

go into your xim global settings and tick the expert mode
then head into your xim game config, under your hip and ads config you can find the "..." button
click it and you can switch the synchronization

the latest xim apex firmware is necessary to have the synchronization feature

with this button you switch back and forth with two shotguns, eg done by a script

OK, critique coming, are suggestions there is not perfect layout.

First. Mouse wheel, I don't care how accurate steps you mouse have, never... evevevever use the mouse wheel to switch between weapons.

Mouse Forward and Backward (side buttons) or Keyboard: Q and E or Z and C will be a better option.

In essence, let your "move-left-finger" also be the "move-previous-weapon-finger" (ring finger), same with move-right == next weapon (index finger). Your brain adopt this pattern faster.

I sprint with Forward button, to use the LShift for crouch this avoid a movement finger leave its key.

LShift in general is great to do something without using your WASD fingers. I tried use this for Build button, really like it but my pinky doesn't have the same strength and reaction time than my right thumb, l also use mouse back for build.

Harvest Weapon on middle mouse G502 is way to stiff and no gives you the right tactile feedback, try F key.

-The second faster finger on our hand is the index finger; C, F, E must had actions that you use often. By the same token Inventory is C key.

I invite you to try this for your mouse:

LMB = Fire
RMB = ADS
Sniper Button = R1 or DPI up (G8)


Because while building using Builder Pro, is GREAT to have main fingers for pieces, I wish we have this mechanic on PC.

Index finger = Walls
Middle finger = Stairs
Thumb = Floors

Assigning one finger for each piece, your brain will associate this pattern quicker and is potentially faster.

Index Finger = Floors using G8 also might work, if you feel the sniper button to far.

Some players use G8 or Wheel UP for reload, it make sense: you are not shooting while reloading right? but if you are using a claw grip moving your index finger constantly from its pointing spot, might disrupt aim and is not advisable.

Capslock double shotgun? Whats that? A keyboard macro?

Edit, nevermind just read what you said.
