If you are looking to get back to a similar movement from earlier chapters then one of the best ways to do so is adjusting the keyboard movement settings. Specifically, I recommend that you set the forward direction angle between 52 and 60 which players have been preferring. For the Strafe Angle, this can feel smooth at around 72 and then the Backward Diagonal Angle can be put to around 135.

If you feel like it then it may also be worthwhile adjusting the sensitivity to values which will match up with what you prefer for the new movement. Some have also recommended removing the key bindings of “forced walk” but I believe that these Keyboard Movement settings are going to be the biggest help for you.

Can you Fix Controller Movement in Fortnite?

Currently, at the moment, there aren’t many ways to tweak the core feel of the controller movement for Fortnite but over time it could be likely the developers may make changes if there is a lot of feedback received from the community. All in all, these new changes in Chapter 5 will take time to get used to if you’re planning on sticking with it.

Some players may of course prefer the new movement too so there is a high chance it will indeed be staying very similar for this movement for a long time. However, with the settings above you will be able to get back to a sense of normality in Fortnite.
