How to get Better at Fortnite

Do you want to beat your competition in Fortnite to claim those Victory Royales?

Don’t worry. We have a list of super useful and simple tips for you to be better at Fortnite and increase your chances of victory. We will guide you to become a better player with strategies that some of the best Fortnite pros use in order to achieve mastery.

Fortnite is a multiplayer game which requires hard work, a creative mind and the ability to always be one step ahead of the competition. If you have got a mind which can decide quickly on what to do and what to not, you can outplay your opponents fast. Compared to other Battle Royale-themed games like Realm Royale, the building is critical in Fortnite.

But aside from keeping these abilities, you must learn some of the great techniques that will help a lot in improving your gameplay, and you will be able to pull off plays like Ninja or other famous Fortnite gamers.

We are here to give you some of the best tips that you must imply to become a better player. The tips we will be giving you are applied by many Fortnite gamers, and that’s the main reason for them to improve day by day. We are also sure that you will improve your games after a few weeks or months after applying these tips practically in the game.

Well, let’s take a look at the list.

1.Learn The Combat

If you have just started playing fortnite and you don’t know much about the game, you need to be engaged in the combat as much as you can. Of course, this will result in a few casualties, and you will lose more often than winning duels, but it will benefit you in many great ways. You will quickly know a lot more about different weapons, their recoiling system and you will also see the flow of combat with a better perspective. The best thing is to try not to win games but to win duels; wich might sound strange.

Try to land in highly populated areas and train on your skills in fights and buildings. Learn from your mistakes. If you hide in a bush until the top 5 are left game after game, you will probably loose from the remaining players anyway due to lack of game experience.

Engaging in combat also allows you to learn how to be prepared to defend yourself from aggressive players. Surviving in the game even without firing a single shot at your opponents will not give you much experience, if you don’t know how to use different weapons in the best way possible, then you won’t be able to win more often.

2. Choose Your Landing Position Wisely

You need to choose the landing position wisely. The landing is very important in Fortnite and if you are not good at it and you don’t know what to do right after you land, then you will not survive for long. We have seen a lot of people telling newbie gamers to stay away from big areas such as Retail Low or Pleasant Park, but that’s just their advice. You need to make your own tactics upon landing and what you enjoy the most.

If everyone starts staying away from these kinds of popular areas then those areas will surely be empty right? So, you just need to make your tactics right, and you need to ask yourself that what will you do before landing? Will you land as quickly as possible, grab first-hand weapons and stand on the ground ready to fight? Or will you go for the sneaky approach and try to aim the outskirts? All these things depend, and it will get better with the more you play!

3. Get Resources To Build and Don’t Forget to Build

In fps games like in other battle royale themed games, you won’t need walls, but the things are different in Fortnite. In Fortnite, you have to build walls, floors, stairs, and roofs. Or else, you will find yourself in a significantly disadvantaged. For creating these kinds of structures, you need to stock a proper amount of materials before engaging. Structures will help you get the protection from the enemy as they will be your protection. It is also a good idea to build walls while you are reviving or healing.

Remeber that high ground is almost always the best position to be, so if you find your opponent building higher than you. Try to stop it with placing structures in their way, or simply build higher yourself. Building walls or stairs will help you reach the places where you cannot. Always try to reach higher peaks as it gives you an edge over other opponents. If you don’t have many structures bound to the main ground, don’t build too high to eliminate the risk of your build collapsing as your opponents destroy the base structures.

4. Learn The Map

If you want to get better at outplaying the opponents in fortnite, you need to learn about the maps carefully. You should have an idea about where the chests spawn so that you can claim them. Including houses or buildings, try to learn on what floor or hidden rooms they are. On the other hand, you also need to know about the less crowded areas as they offer a lot of easy goodies.

So, all you have to do is to learn the map quickly so that you can have the edge over your opponents and you can land straight on a chest.

5. You Don’t Have to Engage on First Sight

A lot of newbie Fortnite players make the mistake that you don’t need to kill your opponent right away you see them. It is not a DeathMatch you are playing. You need to survive, and that’s the most important aspect of the game mode. If you’re not sure if you could kill the opponent on very first sight, better not to go for it. Instead, try to approach in a different way that you feel confident in. Or simply, if the situation is in your opponent’s favour, leave it.

In other words, we could say, that the better you survive, the more are the chances that you are going to win the game.

6. Movement and Crouching

Your movement also has a significant impact on your game style. For example, crouching will help you a lot in making your footsteps sound less and other than that it also adds more accuracy to your weapons. Also, if you are about to fire from a long range, wait a second until your crosshair sh, and you will gain the benefit of the 100% accuracy feature. Usually only impacts your very first shot, but that could be a miss or hit.

You should consider doing crouching when it is needed the most. Ideally while sneaking up on someone indoors.

Furthermore, if you want to engage in a faster pace and making you a harder target to hit. While you’re running on the ground, don’t just run straight. Try to jump when you are running. Jumping will help you a lot in making you a hard target for the lurking snipers, and they won’t be able to shoot at you easily. Same applies when you are in a close range duel. Jumping and moving will make it difficult for your opponent to aim at you, and it’s a higher chance that your opponent will miss the shots.

7. Supply Drops Can Be a Good Idea

Supply drops are balloons that come from the sky, and they land on the blue smoke on the ground. Well, supply drops contain many valuable things in them. Even if they look too far, you should cover some extra miles to find out what’s in them. Make the use of walls around you which will keep you protected from the enemies while you are in search of the supply drops.

8. Use Headphones

This one might be quite obvious for most of you. However, always use headphones while playing Fortnite Battle Royale. You will get the advantages of you paying attention to the sound around you closely. The golden chests also give a unique sound when they are near you so that you can find them easier.

9. Find a Play Style That Work for You

There are basically two types of play styles that you can adopt in order to make improvements in the game.

The first one is to get in the middle of the circle as quickly as possible and standing your ground, while the other tactics involve moving along the edge of the circles.

Both of the tactics are suitable if you can execute them perfectly. A combination of both will work better for ending in the late game.


Well, those were some of the best tips that you can use to make your game better. Always remember that victory comes with patience and practise. If you are good at surviving in the game, the stakes are high that you will somehow win the game. But if you are also good at building and winning duels you winning ratio will skyrocket. Make the use of these tips, think outside the box, make your tactics straight and BINGO! You can now play fortnite with a much better technique.

We wish you good luck in improving your Fortnite game.
Good Luck!
