  2. Keep an eye out for the deadly storm- As a Fortnite match goes on, the map continues to shrink until eventually their is a winner. The map shrinks by a deadly storm that when engulfed by it, can cause immense damage to the players health. It is important that you are aware of when the map is shrinking so you can stay in the playing area and continue your fight to victory.
  3. Try your best to find a shield- Shields provide extra health for your character and are necessary if you want to survive at any time in the match. The time to kill in Fortnite can be very quick so it’s important to shield up. Shields can be the deciding factor in you winning the match or coming up short.
  4. Learn where the chests are typically placed- All throughout the playing area their are chests full of loot and supplies that can transform the player into a more powerful soldier. Learning where these chests are placed will allow the player to gain an edge on the competition. The loot in these chests will ultimately give you better chance at winning the game.
  5. Control bullet drop- In Fortnite the gun’s bullets tend to drop off after a certain distance. When fighting in long range engagements it’s important that to aim a little bit above the head of the enemy. This will allow you to be more effective in firefights and will give the bullets a chance to hit your target.
  6. A early kill in the game can help you gain better loot- You will not always be able to acquire the best loot in the beginning of the game. Because of this it’s important that to try to get a few early kills so you will be able to savage the loot from the enemies you just eliminated.
  7. Get to higher ground- Having a height advantage in Fortnite is crucial. It allows you the chance to spot enemies before they spot you and can create a difficult situation for the enemies who have to fire up at you.
  8. Shotgun skills are crucial- Being able to win upclose firefights is one of the most important skills in Fortnite. In order to survive in the beginning of the match, you must be able to use a shotgun. With so many enemies surrounding you when you first drop into the map, you are likely to encounter a enemy in close proximity. The best way to fight these enemies is by using a shotgun that has great damage at close range.
  9. Dont drop out of the battle bus directly over the building you want to loot- It’s important to leave the battle bus a little bit before you encounter the town you want to loot. This will give you the chance to glide into the town which is a much quicker alternative to floating down in your parachute.
  10. Don’t hide the whole game!- If you want to make this game fun for yourself, it’s important that you move around and stay away from hiding from enemies. It’s a much more exciting game when you try to go out and find enemies and make an effort to eliminate them.
