How to Fix Falcon Scout Controls Being Unbound in Fortnite
To fix the Falcon Scout controls being unbound, you need to close Fortnite completely and start it again. Simply leaving the match and joining a new one won’t work.
However, this isn’t a permanent fix, and it is likely to happen again. Unfortunately, it is a case of waiting for Epic Games to fix this.
Alternatively, if you’ve used the Falcon Scout and can’t exit it because the controls are unbound, fly it as far away from yourself as possible. Once it loses signal, it will return to you, and you’ll stop using it.
This glitch can ruin a match, especially as you frequently need to use the Falcon Scout in Weekly Quests. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to easily mark enemies in Fortnite.
