Aim for rivers and roads
Open your parachute at a very last moment because that will give you a faster landing. You will do that if you aim for low areas such as roads or rivers.
Don’t rush for supplies
Don’t go for supplies immediately. Stay out of it because you will survive for longer and you can still find some good weapons in rural areas.
Gather resources early
Start by gathering your resources such as wood and brick early. Later on, you will just become an easy target.
Gather them discreetly
If you are chopping trees don’t chop them down completely because you are revealing your location, and you are becoming an easy target.
Strategize with the Storm Eye
As the game progresses, the storm eye closes, but still you will have some time to explore. Don’t rush immediately to safe zone.
Just like in any other shooting game, sound is very important in Fortnite. Headphones will help you hear things you wouldn’t hear through the speakers.
Jump into action
In Fortnite, you need to remain the last person standing, but you will not do so unless you are skilled with firearms. Don’t be afraid to jump into action – practice makes it perfect.
Hide before you heal
This is self-explanatory and even the beginners will not be making these mistakes.
Instead of going to Loot Lake, you can direct for the Wailing Woods. It has some great loot and resources.
Slide down the hill
If you want to escape, this is a useful thing to do. However, you can hurt yourself, so be careful. Move in opposite direction while you are doing it.
Get a shotgun
Shotguns are powerful and easy to use, and more importantly, easy to find.
Choose your arsenal wisely
It doesn’t mean that you should have heaps of shotguns. You need various weapons, suitable for shooting close and far-away targets.
Position yourself based on the weapon
If you are good with close-ranged weapon, move around in an enclosed space, for example. Watchtower are great for snipers.
Don’t waste your ammunition
Don’t move around and shoot it will make you miss a lot. Instead, when you have an assault rifle, stay still and crouch while hiding behind an object.
Fire hydrant jump
Use pickaxe to break the hydrant and jump on the stream of water. You will go high up in the air, perfect for looking at your surroundings and escaping the enemies.
Fortnite is not a regular shooting game and if you master building stuff, you will be much better.
While long-range weapons have their benefits, it is difficult to kill players from far away, plus your location could be exposed.
Don’t loot bodies immediately, when you killed your enemy, don’t go to loot his body immediately. Someone could be watching you, waiting for the wrong step.
Remember this color spectrum
- Grey – Common
- Green – Uncommon
- Blue – Rare
- Purple – Epic
- Gold – Legendary
Traps can be used to your advantage, especially if you build them near appealing objects. Keep this in mind
If you leave the doors open, the others will be more cautious because they might believe that you are still. You can close them or leave them open – it is up to you – but it will influence the behavior of other players.
Destroy hiding spots
Standing in a hiding spot, waiting for the others to kill each other is a solid tactics. To lure players like that out, destroy these places.
Watch other players
See how the others play the game. Incorporate some of these aspects into your strategy.
Crouching is good
When you crouch, you are silent and the accuracy of your aim increases. Use this as much as possible, except, of course, when you are running away.
Watch the others fight and wait for the one player to die, then make your move.
