    I Just can't seem to get the hang of keyboard and mouse. I came from console where it is easy to use the xbox controller I just can't seem to get used to the idea of keyboard and mouse. Is there anything I can do to make easy for me to get the hang of keyboard and mouse.

    Personally I'd say fornite has quite complex controls for a shooter, I'd recommend getting cs:go and practicing on that at first till you get the hang of using a mouse to shoot then go onto more complex games.

    So you only need to use keyboard for movement

    I sucked with keyboard and mouse for months, only started getting better recently. Just practice, you'll eventually kick ***.

    I'm trying to learn keyboard and mouse, it's tough cause of the build system but set the bindings the way you like it and stick with it. Eventually it will be in your muscle memory.

    I am not too good at it either. But you’ll learn just like you learned to use the controller. It will become second nature eventually. And you’ll do so much better then with a controller

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this but... (note: KB + M = Keyboard & Mouse)
    When using controller, aim assist is ENABLED.
    When using KB+M, aim assist is DISABLED.
    It actually does get literally harder to aim when using KB+M due to lack of aim assist.

    I've played on PS4 using a KB + M via third party devices (translates KB+M input into controller input), it's way easier to aim that it feels like an advantage over controller users.

    Then on the PC with only KB + M, aim assist is gone and aiming feels way harder. Like wise, doing the same thing I did for the PS4 (translating KB+M input to controller input), the aiming on KB+M gets easier because aim assist is enabled.

    My point is, there is a software difference when using controller vs KB+M. Controller gets the option of aim assist and KB+M does not.
    Additionally, I don't think it's fair for KB+M to have aim assist and I think Epic Games know this.

    I played COD on Xbox all my life, switched to KB and Mouse about a year and a half ago. It took some time, but a lot of practice is all that is needed. H1Z1 is free to play right now, while obviously not Fortnite, they have combat practice which is extremely ideal for getting used to aiming with mouse, using keyboard for movement and weapon switches, and such. That, or a CS:GO bot and aim training. Hopefully Fortnite adds a similar warm-up kind of thing at some point. Would be cool.
