OK, I usually don't do this but... what the hell.

1. Fortnite Settings:
settings and be sure Reset Build Choice is ON and Turbo Build is ON, Controller Layout = Combat Pro.
Player Control sensitivity max (10), not mouse... controller.

2. XIM Manager.
Global Adjustments->Enabled Expert Config
Polling Rate = 500Hz
HIP = 15
Synchronize = Common
Smoothing =  0

ADS = 7
Synchronize = Common
Smoothing =  0

3. Keyboard Key binds
Keyboard,
Set the keys you are more comfortable to play with.

Just keep an eye which keys you use for:
  • Build
  • R1/RB
  • L1/LB
  • Pickaxe
Suggested Setup:
Build Circle/B = C
L1/LB = Q
R1/RB = E
Triangle/Y = F


Use whatever for Inventory, Emote, Settings, etc.

4. Set up G502. Open Logitech Gaming Software on your PC,
Set mouse Polling rate = 500Hz
Set Mouse DPI = 4000.
-Try this sensitivity setting, if you need more increase on XIM Apex Manager

Then, create these macros and set this keys:

Where
Mouse Back button is your Wall.
---- *Macro Behavior: Press it and a wall it will be built instantaneously, and you are right back to your gun/pick axe.
Mouse Button Forward is your Stair or Ramp, same behavior.*
Mouse Wheel left side scroll wheel is your Floor or Platform, same behavior.*
(Yes, this buttons are the same used by Ninja [https://youtu.be/2F966dhmoVY?t=14s])

I use a large mouse pad.

Increase your XIM sensitivity as you need.

BUT i strongly recommend you leave mouse dpi set to 4000 amd polling rate to 500Hz, both settings makes Aim Assist push you in to the target (ADS). Better than 12K dpi and 1000Hz polling rate.

Indeed.

Mark's T2 Script  and
MRog40 - Fortnite Build for XIM Link Script
are more PC-like

This setup is for starters, a low-cost, easy-to-setup alternative, so they can get the most of the game before decide to really expend more on it. Set things with T2 or Xim Link is more for advanced users, but community helps.

Worth mention: even though an automatic macros helps to stay level-head on heated gunfights,

I prefer the semi-automatic macros just don't add the build button press at the end of the macro. If you want to turned to semi-automatic, edit the macro and delete these key press and delays in every macro key:


Now you can build faster, PC like.

New Macro Behavior:
  • When you press a macro-key a piece will be built instantaneously, you stay on *build mode* press Fire (R2/RT) to place more of the same piece.
  • Every time you need to build a different piece you have to press Build (Circle/B) and then the other macro-key piece
  • Press Build (Circle/B) to get back to your gun, or
  • Press F to get back to your pickaxe

With practice became intuitive.

These semi-automatic macros are far way better than Titan-Two Gamepack Fast Build.
If you go T2 use Community Scripts

The whole -"press build" to get out of build mode is the difference from PC, and even with T2 Scripts you have to press build also. I guess is the same for XIM Link script, because it is a console port limitation.
