Things, as they are, triumphing in the battle royale of the moment, is not easy, but if you follow these tips you can raise the level and get the most out of the title Playing “Fortnite” well is not easy. To achieve this, it is necessary to spend many hours stuck to the screen, especially when the players of this battle royale are counted by millions. And things as they are, the level is very high. If you are one of those who die seconds after landing, and for a long time you do not manage to break the bad streak, we give you a few tips that can help you improve. Possibly you will never get to the champion of the Fortnite World Cup, like Kyle Giersdorf, however, they will allow you to level up and get the juice out of the title.
It all starts before landing
In the ” Official Fortnite Survival Guide ” (Hachette) it is explained that it is important that the player is patient before jumping. Instead of launching at any point on the island, you should look for a remote location where the number of enemies is as small as possible. “Landing at a location with a name may allow you to get more loot, but it will also increase your risk of bumping into other players,” he says in the book.
Once a safe place has been selected from which to leave, it is important to start moving around the map immediately in search of weapons. Of course, while paying attention to the presence of enemies in the surroundings. A good indicator of this is the constructions. Before approaching other players, be sure that you have the weapons and materials to face them.
The weapons that best suit
Obviously, if the goal is to win, it is essential to have the best weapons and a wide variety of resources. Among the first, in the game, you can find everything from shotguns to guns, through assault rifles or rocket launchers (ideal for destroying the constructions of our enemies). Depending on the rarity of the weapon (which can be legendary, epic, rare, uncommon or common) a player will have an advantage over another in the confrontation.
When selecting weapons, you should think about what form of combat you want to use. Thus, as noted in the book, «Unless you are using a shotgun, you should settle on the ground before engaging with an enemy. Weapons such as the assault rifle, the submachine gun, and the sniper rifle are usually more effective if you’re not moving and shooting crazy.
Play with head
As in any «battle royale», playing in « Campero » mode, hidden with a precision weapon, usually pays off: «When you see two players fighting, do not throw yourself headlong towards them. If you look at the confrontation from afar, you can better determine if you should pass by or seize the moment. In remote confrontations, it is important to remain still and remain calm; Don’t start jumping like a rabbit from one place to another. Instead, it is advisable to bend over and look for a cover that covers us (a wall, a construction, or a tree).
At the same time, you should try to start fighting from high positions, whether natural or manufactured by the player. To stand up to an enemy from above is always a plus: «Positioning yourself above the other players is crucial for victory; many battles are resolved based on who is above the other before.
In case the confrontation takes place at close range, unlike when fighting at a distance, it is important to move a lot to avoid being an easy target. Something that also helps confuse the opponent.
Build like an expert
Resources are very important to survive until the end of the game. Obtaining reserves of stone, metal and wood are essential for the construction, which can be of help both when attacking and defending. In the book, it is recommended to build in movement, which is something that will help to disconcert the enemy, although it can be somewhat difficult to learn the mechanics. For half of the game “you should try to have a stock of 1500 of each material, which will allow you to increase your options”, is explained in the guide.
It is important to be aware, in addition, to the consumables scattered on the map. All provide important benefits, whether they are medical kits to recover health, shield potions, which provide extra protection, or sorbets and drums, which restore both the standard of living and the shield bars as time goes by.
Eye with the storm
The 99 enemies are not the only rival he faces in ” Fortnite .” You have to be very (very) careful with the storm. This is consuming health, is activated a minute after the 100 players land on the map, and grows progressively as the game progresses. This ends up causing the competitors for the win to be closer and closer. As noted in the game manual, standing on its margins, with the back attached to a cover, can be a good combat tactic: «It will give you the opportunity to hunt down any player who is desperately trying to reach a safe place at beginning or middle of the game ».
In case the storm reaches a player, he must remain calm and search the map for the exit closest to his situation. If you see that your health begins to fall too low, you will have to use first aid kits and bandages to restore it. A good way to find an exit is to reach an elevated position and create a bridge that leads to a safe area.
