With a new chapter of Fortnite in the middle of its first season, it’s time to round up all the tips and tricks for surviving on the island
If you are new to the island of Fortnite, welcome to hell – expect Anonymous to throw you the party every two for three, but if they were our advice on the titles to be recovered on New Year’s Eve to bring you here we are happy to share with you the basic tricks for survival. Let’s be honest: you will hardly find anything you haven’t seen elsewhere before, but on the other hand we understand the awe of being in front of players with potentially months or years of experience. It’s never too late to start, though – you may even be more into the game than you think.
We put this together guide for beginners as a reference point to give you all the basic information to take with you before you land on the island (presumably already in someone’s sights). If you might like to know, the writer has been hanging out with the game (shortly) before Chapter 2, faithfully following the developments from the legendary “Top Secret” season. Things change quite often as far as frills are concerned, but the core mechanics are still the same. Get ready so you know what to do once you thank the bus driver.
First of the tricks to survive on the island of Fortnite: there are no tips that can exempt you from need to arm yourself every time you land on the island. Of course, before you get on the battle bus you will peek at the matchmaking islet, where you will find several weapons on the ground. However, you won’t be able to take even one to the main island. Rather, take advantage of the impossibility of hurting yourself while on the islet: the time you have is precious, as the players slowly come in numbers. Once you are 100, the loading of the actual match will begin.
Expected Landing – Fortnite Tips and Tricks
The Fortnite battle bus (of which you should, if you want advice, thank the driver before you even get off, by pressing below on the directional cross) offers no particular tricks, except one. We know: in this game, loads and descents are expected and then, potentially, they will be eliminated within a second. But if you can, wait as long as possible before joining the fray. Instead, wait for the countdown to reach around 3 (below), and competition for the best weapons (and / or survival) will be very low. Landing on the roofs you can immediately find chests, or at least basic weapons, without anyone breaking your soul.
Prepared Parachute – Tips and Tricks for Fortnite
We talked about expectations and there is hardly one more unnerving than the one related to parachute. Let’s be clear: you can open and close it freely with the jump button (making the furthest points from the bus cutting line reachable), but once the distance between you and the ground touches the minimum … the parachute opens automatically without there is no way to close it. Be patient and head straight to the nearest facility as the crow flies. And if you want an extra trick … fool the system. Make sure you are as low as possible, and then turn to the nearest elevation as soon as the parachute can no longer close. Umbrellas are the stealthiest parachutes, but you need to win a match to get one.
Luscious Shields – Fortnite tips and tricks
Okay, there’s no getting around it: the mechanics of treatment existing in the game is a bit silly and you’ll have to come to terms with it. The most common treatments for the green bar of the health points, the bandages, will never go beyond 75 energy points; you need fruits or medkits to reach the desired 100%. An analogous discourse applies to shields, protagonists of a blue bar that will be only the enemy attacks to empty. Be sure to use the smallest vials first – they are worth 25 shield points each for a maximum of 50. To reach the hundred, however, drink the 50 jugs only when the shield bar is already halfway. Each object is used with the same button used to shoot.
Quick Bursts – Tips and Tricks for Fortnite
Rule of thumb: rely on assault rifles and submachine guns if you are still taking your first steps on the island. Precision rifles are useless if you are less than 75 meters away from your opponent, and although having one with you always helps make sure you don’t use it at close range for any reason, except for exceptions (for example if it is your only weapon at moment). Also, shotguns are best if you want to see nearby opponents turn into holograms as soon as possible, so always grab one in enclosed spaces (like houses) where firefights tend to never last beyond ten seconds.
Heavy Hierarchy – Tips and Tricks for Fortnite
You will notice achromatic aura surround every object on the ground: the hierarchical scale of the rarity of weapons consists, needless to do so on purpose, in the various damages inflicted by them. The order is this: Grey (common), verde (uncommon), blu (weird), viola (epic) and orange (legendary). We say “orange” because theoro genuine belongs to the so-called mythical weapons, which do not shine in numbers (two or three on the map for each game) and tend to vary according to the themes of each season. Pressing his on the directional cross the inventory opens, useful for keeping an eye on the materials, weapons and damage inflicted by them.
Audio Aid – Tips and Tricks for Fortnite
It is usually some musical games like the enjoyable Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory that they say, but make sure you play with headphones. The sounds of footsteps and shots can prove vital, and understanding where they come from often makes the difference between life and the usual “Eliminated by”. And if you want to play it safe, look in the game settings the visual appearance of the shots: it is a benefit designed primarily for the deaf, but which everyone can benefit from. With this option you will see a blurred grid appear at the edge of which you can see where the noises are coming from.
Barricate Briose – Tricks and tips for Fortnite
The slogan of the game is “Don’t seek shelter, build it”. And yes, in English it sounds better (“Don’t take shelter, make it”). But there is a reason your pickaxe is called “collection tool“And not” close range weapon “. It can be used for that too, but once you break walls and cut down trees you will get gods materials; for every ten of each it is possible to raise a wall, create a staircase, place a floor or erect a small pyramid. Since medkits take a whopping ten seconds, it’s good to give your opponents something to do while they wait for you to get back in top shape.
Colossal Falls – Tips and Tricks for Fortnite
Here is the fall damage: Finding yourself on the ground starting from the equivalent of three walls in height will lead to a drastic decline in your health. Unless the enemy is razing the building you just set up to the ground (and if you built it as needed within seconds, why are you still reading ?!), you have more ways to cushion your fall. If you are “simply” on very steep slopes, you should be able to slide downstream without too much trouble. If you are falling instead, immediately open the construction menu to place a floor below you. With this last trick it is possible to go from the roof of a building to the street without having to go through the building from the inside (below).
Longing Heights – Tips and Tricks for Fortnite
If you have a sniper rifle and find yourself crouched in a bush on top of a mountain, you have half the game in hand. Sure, the same controls are used to aim high as when aiming low, but twice out of three whoever is higher than the opponent also has a better chance of knocking him out. However, since there are more valleys than hills, it is also good to know how to build your own elevated points. Build four walls around you to create your cozy closet, and then place a ramp in the direction of the enemies. Et voila, you will have your own homemade lookout station. It will then be up to you to decide whether to place a floor under you and repeat the process to raise the tower, knowing that you will also make it more vulnerable at the base.
Essential Inventory – Tips and Tricks for Fortnite
Grenades, bandages and shields: three things to always have with you. The grenades, once you have become familiar with trajectories and rebounds, they are excellent for razing some walls (or, more directly, some opponent unable to build them; they are a real fun to throw down the stairs in the buildings where you know you have company on the floor below). As for the cure, we don’t need to tell you: at any time of the game, a single well-aimed shot with a maximum rarity sniper rifle can take you from having 100 health and shields to suddenly find yourself with a measly 30 points health.
Blaterante Bush – Tips and Tricks for Fortnite
The only thing more satisfying than turning a forest into a toothpick warehouse … is not doing it, leaving the trees intact. The harvesting tool allows you to harvest a lot of wood, that is undoubted, but you should stop when the shrub has at least 50 life points left. Enemies will hardly notice scratches on the bark, while the transition from a Whining Forest to a Weeping Plain (with the harvest tools or, below, with fire) will make you very, very easy to view with a scope. And we doubt you can say the same of you, that you will already be coloring your vocabulary by pointing out who has had the sole fault of being smarter.
Ordinary Ordnances – Tips and tricks for Fortnite
Yes, that’s right, there have been several bombs in the past, but with the exception of the Sticky Grenade reintroduced in Chapter 3 the game remains faithful to Granata standard as the only available bomb. Things have been simplified quite a bit, in short, but for now, you’ll avoid a big headache. We can advise you, however, to collect the aforementioned fireflies at the base of the trees by holding the button to grab the tools on the ground. You can carry a maximum of six per slot, but if your opponent chooses the wood to build his shelter not only will you have a better chance of winning, but you will also have a lot of laughs in the meantime.
Moderate Mode – Tips and Tricks for Fortnite
Sometimes mistakes can be made long before entering the battlefield. At the first start of the game, you may find yourself in a team match (where “teams” are meant as quartets). If you want to avoid being on a team with three other players, you can choose the type of game directly from lobby. Depending on the platform you play from, the buttons to do so may vary, but the essence is …
