Here's how to get to these controls in the fortnite (once updated)

Gyro:In the "Touch and Motion" tab of the settings, enable or disable the gyro controls. Enable or disable "Gyro Aiming" to achieve this. When the camera is on, you can control it by rotating the controller.

Flick Stick:Enable the flick stick in the "Touch and Motion" menu so that when you aim the right stick in a specific direction, the camera quickly moves to face that direction. Since you can no longer shoot up or down with the right stick, you will need to enable gyro aiming.
