Learning how to get better at Fortnite is the first step to truly enjoying everything the game has to offer. Dying early and often may seem frustrating at first, but with enough practice, you should be moving up ranks in no time!
I’ve compiled a bunch of Fortnite pro tips that have been tried and tested throughout days of sweaty matches. Read on to discover how you can up your game in just a few steps.
Warm up before matches
Watching pros online might make you think that they’re born to play the game. It’s easy to feel bad when looking at their kills, and wondering if you can ever be as naturally talented at Fortnite.
All pros gotta start somewhere, whether they start off as casual gamers or want to move up the ranks immediately. And they practice way more often than you’d think, too!
Utilize Fortnite’s practice mode before matches, so you can swap weapons, build, and shoot to your heart’s desire. Take note of what works and what doesn’t, so you can hop into your next match as prepared as you’ll ever be!
Check your sensitivity settings
This is a tip from Ninja himself, so don’t go discounting this crucial step! If you notice that the slightest movement may be causing you to spazz all over the place and miss kills, adjusting your sensitivity settings may be the best option.
I recommend adjusting it lower, whether you’re on a controller or a mouse and keyboard. This will make it much easier for you to aim without worrying about the slightest twitch causing you to completely lose sight of the enemy. And since we just talked about warm-ups, feel free to practice different sensitivity settings in practice mode!
Try out other devices
Gone are the days wherein a mouse and keyboard set-up is the “best” or “only” set-up you should look at while playing FPS games. I’ve seen streamers with nearly perfect aim with a mouse and keeb, but I’ve also seen streamers who can aim with a controller like no other. With mobile gaming on the rise too, some players excel with just their mobile phone finger sleeves.
If you have a tablet, mobile phone, console, or PC at your disposal, experiment with all of them. What works for you might not work for other people, and can drastically up your game!
Study how the pros do it
The best Fortnite players in the world have hundreds of hours at their disposal to compete on the world stage. Even if that might not be the case for you, you can easily pick up a thing or two from any playthrough of theirs, even the ones where they underperform.
Watching pro Fortnite matches can get you learning a thing or two from the casters present, too! They can spot nuances in pro players’ tactics that aren’t normally seen by a regular viewer, and you can see if these can help you improve your own gameplay, too!
Wait until the final seconds start ticking before jumping out
Hot dropping is fine and dandy if you want to practice scuffling with players right off the bat, but if you’re wanting to win or rank up, dropping later on is the more strategic choice. You can scope out where enemies are landing so you can get to them.
You might feel impatient looking at everyone else dropping before you do, but know that you will have more time to get your bearings in the game if you drop much later. Fortnite is a game that gradually builds on combat, so it’s better to strategize first before jumping into your first skirmish!
