The Top Ten Fortnite: Battle Royale Tips

1 Learn to build quickly

I'm a pro builder

I learned this the hard way

Building quickly will allow for you to defend yourself quickly if in need, and will help you to get places faster. - HyperShock

This the most important thing in the game

2 Crouch when shooting

Especially helpful if using a sniper

When shooting, crouching makes you a harder target and increases your accuracy. - HyperShock

3 Jump and run when running through open areas

Everyone knows this - B1ueNew

When running through an open area, you are an easy target to snipers; running and jumping will make you a harder target. - HyperShock

4 Don’t collect the loot immediately after you kill a player

If you rush in as soon as you kill a player, and start collecting their items, you are a very easy target to opponents. - HyperShock

5 Don’t jump out of the battle bus right away

This happens all the time unless Tilted Towers is on the other side of the bus path

I always jump first either to paridise,pleasant and risky

If you are jumping out immediately for a reason it’s ok. But if you wait a little while, you’ll be able to have a higher chance of living due to the fact that there will be less people where you land. - HyperShock

6 Use a shotgun in tight buildings

Shotguns are very effective up close; this, they are helpful in tight buildings. - HyperShock

7 Don’t use shotguns or pistols for long distance shots

Common sense people

It actually tells you in the menu that Pistols, SMGs and Shotguns are best at close combat

Shot guns and pistols ARE NOT good for long distance shots. - HyperShock

8 Learn the map really well

Things about the map:
Titled will always have people unless in the storm
Other popular spots include Retail, Salty, Pleseant, Frosty, Leaky, Fatal, Paradise and Lazy
A place in the map that is the most dangerous to be at besides Tilted is the Southern Valley
Heaps more...

Knowing the map well will allow you to get places faster, find items you want, have an advantage on opponents, and more. - HyperShock

9 Hide while drinking potions

Obviously, you don’t want to be standing out in the open, ready to be shot, when you’re trying to heal or protect yourself. - HyperShock

10 Always look for higher ground

If you look for higher ground and build up a sturdy base there, you can eliminate a lot more people!

The Contenders

11 Place traps behind doors and on ceilings

These places are harder for players to avoid. - HyperShock

12 Learn bullet drop and timing for sniping
13 Build tall forts when there are few people left or when play zone shrinks

Make sure it's 8! if there are nine you're doing it wayy to early but if there are 7 people left and you haven't then you have already lost

Don't make them too high or else people will just shoot it down - PeeledBanana

14 Weapon grades make almost no difference

If there are is a squad surrounding a legendary minigun and you have an epic one, don't go for the kill. They both do the same thing in the same way. One just does slightly more damage.

15 Organize your loot inventory
16 Never take your eyes off an opponent
17 Go to Tilted Towers to get better

Or any other crowded area. Chapter 2 just started, so Tilted Towers is gone. Sweaty Sands is a pretty crowded place.

It has the most action so you will have the most experience in a gunfight.

18 Wear headphones

Headphones are really useful to have since if you hear a sound you can actually hear where it's coming from. Also make sure to turn your volume up in those headphones. - MaxPap

19 Don't dance until you win the game

This is just gonna make you an easy target. People can hear you and you'll be easier to shoot for your opponent/

Save all your dancing for when you win.

20 Always have your volume up

You need your volume up so that you can hear gun fire around you

21 When sniping, wait until the person stops moving

So your opponent doesn’t see the shot and they start building to higher ground. And so you don’t waste ammo - Paaatttriiickkksttaarrr

22 Play Playground

Great way to have fun and get better at the game. Ask one of your better friends to help you with some things you are not good at.

23 Shoot the alive opponent first instead of finishing off the knocked opponent

Nobody waits for the knocked opponents to die anymore like people are not patient. Same as jumping off the battle bus right away because I see so many people not waiting for the good locations on the other side of the battle bus pathway anymore.
Shoutout to whoever made the tip for not jumping off the battle bus instantly

24 Paths and rivers are the death sentence.

Don't go there!

25 Never stay in the open

There could be snipers anywhere!
