How to use Gyro Controls and Flick Stick in Fortnite?

Gyro aiming in Fortnite is similar to the ‘gyroscope’ mechanic in PUBG: Mobile. You can use your controller and move it around to aim at the screen. It takes a while to get used to but when you get familiar with it, it leaves you with much more independent movement and building capabilities while aiming simultaneously.

As for Flick Stick, it allows players to immediately turn in a cardinal direction when you flick with a stick. For example, if you are getting shot from behind when you flick your controller stick, your player will immediately turn 180 degrees back so you can re-adjust your aim with enough time.
