Fortnite Tips

Fortnite is quite a difficult game to anyone entering as a new player. It's been around for sometime now and is well established as a popular place to engage in battle for thousands of gamers around the world on a daily basis.

1) Learn to Build
While it's possible to get to grips with the shooting mechanics relatively quickly, especially on the PC, building is another issue, and if you want to stand a better chance of getting a Victory Royale, learning to build is essential.

2) When you are starting out find a quiet location
If you are new to Fortnite, then you may want to consider dropping to some of the quieter locations to begin with so you can get used to how the game works, build a bit and find some decent weapons without getting blown to pieces. You may not get the best weapons this way, but you will survive for a bit longer.

3) Find out what all the weapons are good for
Each weapon has it's own strengths and weaknesses and you probably want to try to collect about one of each type if you can.

The machine guns are good for medium range and to shoot rapidly. Shot guns are generally good over short distances, they are very powerful but you only get one or two shots off before you need to reload.

The heavy sniper rifles are excellent in honing in an an unsuspecting enemy from long distances, but you can only make one shot at a time before needing to reload.

There are other weapons such as grenades, rocket launchers and pistols which are also really good in certain environments.

4) Find XP Coins
These are great at boosting you up to the next XP levels they come in a variety of colors and strengths.

5) Open Chests
All the good stuff is in chests. Remember where they are for the next game.
