Top 8 Tips To Improve Your Fortnite Gaming Skills

Over 40 million people play Fortnite, and the number continues to grow. In specific ways, it’s a game that is played differently from anything like PUBG. Learning to improve your gaming skills at Fortnite takes pure dedication, these tips will only help you get started as they are only meant for beginner players.

If you want to get started, here are the top 8 tips to help you out.

1. Train to steal faster

Fortnite is a hard game to master, and if you want to survive the start of the game, you’ll need to steal as quickly as you can. The best way to do this is to jump off the bus spontaneously, jump at high speed, and end up landing in a place that gives you the most loot.

The aim is to get your hands on a weapon. After that, if things go south, you’ll need a shield or a healing object. Every gun is better than no gun at all. A gun can often kill faster rather than hacking someone with your default pickaxe (which only causes ten damage per hit).

2. Consider a location to drop in the map

The map on Fortnite Battle Royale is tiny, provided there are 100 players at a time. There are also hot spots, but the new update has added tons of looting areas. You’ll find the best loot in the early stages, but also the players, especially if they’re landing in the same location as you are.

Your glider lets you get anywhere on the globe. You might want to consider flying around the island before you go down to loot while you’re learning the game. The best way to practice fighting is to get involved in a fight, but it can be disappointing if you’re a beginner, and you lose the game minutes after landing.

3. Always land on a roof

Start on the roof when you are still looting a building. In case of a house, you will often find chests, although some buildings have weapons in them.

Then go to the next level, loot and work as you please. When looting buildings, it is always possible to reach the roof. You will hear a sound when there is a safe nearby. You want them, and most of the time, they’re in the attic.

4. Never. Stop. Moving

PUBG could be used for camping, but this does not work with Fortnite. You are dead if you stay still even for a second.

Whether you recharge, heal, or assault someone, move as much as you can. Small movements on the spot while you move makes it difficult for snipers to shoot. Jumping during a shootout will improve your chances of survival. A moving target is more difficult to hit than a fixed target.

Be aware of your surroundings, including what is above you. Since Fortnite Battle Royale includes building mechanisms, one tactic to gain an advantage over opponents is to attack them from above.

It leaves them helpless and often provides the element of surprise. You don’t have a free look in Fortnite as you do in PUBG, so you can’t keep running while having a 360-degree view.

5. Building to win

One of the unique aspects of Fortnite is its building mechanism. Harvesting loots are the first step, which also means using your pickaxe on metal, stone and wood. Be smart and opt for more giant trees or wooden pallets (found in buildings of inclined towers) because they give you more loot. 

Not only can construction help you learn new things, in the final stages, but it is also essential to try to take advantage. As you descend to the last players in the last circles, you will see the player will start building to defend themselves. You should do the same.

Try falling to a quieter part of the map so you can harvest resources if you need to practice your building skills.

6. Balancing your inventory

You have five slots to fill with conventional weapons and healing items like bandage kits, shield potions, the Chug Jug and the Slurp Juice. When looting, do everything you can to maintain a balance.

Drink your first shield potions and free the inventory slot. This means that when it is exhausted, you can loot another one afterwards. Prioritize the med-kits to bandages, and the Chug Jug is the Holy Grail because it will fill all your health and your shield at the same time.

Try to carry a range of weapons. You need something like a tactical shotgun, for engagements An assault rifle is preferable, while for a long-range, try to get an assault rifle or a sniper.

7. Timing the circles

You can still get caught when the storm circle is closing in, although the map is not so massive. The plan is divided into a grid system, and each square will take you 45 seconds as the crow flies to cross. But this does not take into account the changes in terrain.

Your health will start decreasing. Shields can’t protect you. Do a rough calculation as soon as the circle falls on the map to determine how long you think it will take you to get there.

Not only do you get a countdown of time until the storm circle starts to move, but then you get a timer telling you how long it’s gone before it’s completely shrunk.

8. Try playing with friends

The solo queue is brutal and hard. Playing with 99 other players on your own is difficult, so if you are learning the game, you might benefit from playing with friends in a duo or team mode.

In this way, if you are knocked down before being killed, it will offer your friends the chance to resuscitate you. It’s also great to have more eyes covering you and fighting your enemies for you.

You can play with teams without friends by choosing the auto-fill option. You may also not die quickly, even if it puts you in a situation where you may not be as successful.


Fortnite is a tough game to master at first, but once you get the hang of it – everything becomes easy. Follow these tips to get a grasp of how the game works and how you can improve your gaming skills. If you want to learn more, playing a squad match is always the best way to improve your gaming skills.
