Wait for your drop

You might be tempted to get down on the battlefield as soon as the round starts. Naturally, you would want to get your hands on the scattered loot items and prepare yourself for the ensuing battle. But other players of the game would be thinking along the same lines. It would be more beneficial if you choose to wait for your drop from the Battle Bus so you can be out of reach of the other players and avoid the bloodbath that happens in the first couple of minutes of the game.

Take the glider into account.

If you have played this game even a couple of times, then you are already familiar with the automatic deploy mechanism of your glider.

Unlike other games where you can use the chute to control your descent, the glider automatically deploys after reaching a certain threshold. Hence, you need not worry about the drop and focus on getting near your desired location as quickly as possible.

Opt for Assault Rifles or SMGs

As a beginner, you might be tempted to try your hand at every equipment and gear that is available to you.

It is pretty understandable as you would want to experiment a bit to find the best loadout suited for your playing style. But if you are still not sure which is the best option that you can go for, then try Assault rifles or SMGs.

They are undoubtedly the firearms suited for beginners who have little to no experience in the game. Unlike other weapons that are limited in their usage, Assault rifles and SMGs can be used for short and middle-range combat without any issue.

Play with your headphone

Fortnite is a game where you must invest in quality headphones if you want to win. The game’s developers have done a fantastic job in adding sound effects which, by using a good pair of headphones, can help you estimate the location of a nearby enemy.

Their footsteps, the sound made from the gun, and many other little things can be beneficial to the player. So, it would be wise to invest in a quality headset as soon as possible.

There is fall damage in the game.

While Fortnight might seem like a fun game that defies the laws of physics, there are many elements of the game that are very much realistic. And one such example is the fall damage a player would experience in the game.

Now, the game is not that excruciating that even if you jump from a short height, you will receive some damage.

But if the drop height goes anything above a standard three-story building, well, you would need to drink that heal potion as soon as possible. What you could do is build an emergency ramp to slide down the building or the hill or anything and save yourself from the fall damage.

Get to the upper ground ASAP.

If there is one tip you need to take to your heart, it would be to get to a high location as soon as possible.

Now it could be the top of the mountain or a construct made by you; it does not matter. What matters is how quickly you reach that location. Having a bird’s eye view of the battlefield would do a lot of good.

Now, you must follow this guide and you will make your gameplay enjoyable as a beginner.
