Fortnite Chapter 2, the newest update to the free-to-play “battle royale” shooter, has just released, bringing with it an army of both old and new players. If you are someone who is just jumping into the Fortnite phenomenon, here are some pro-tips to keep you from getting wrecked by all the more experienced players looking to make an easy kill of any newbie who dares enter their game.
Choose a good starting point
Fortnite allows you to choose where you start each match, and this is an incredible tool that can be used to any players advantage if they apply a little bit of cunning and wisdom. What the best players of the game do is get themselves personally acquainted with the map so that they know all the good sniping spots and the location of all the worthwhile items that can be procured during gameplay. With a little bit of foresight and planning, the proper starting point can give you a huge advantage over your peers.
Have a well-crafted arsenal
Using Chapter 2s new upgradeable weapons system, it is more important than ever that you have the right tools for the job if you wish to be the victor in any given match. The key to victory isn’t just having the strongest weapons, however, but a multitude of weapons that can be used in a multitude of situations. You are going to want to spend a lot of time looting, crafting, and making sure you have not just strong weapons, but a lot of strong weapons.
Make proper use of boats
One big addition to Fortnite Chapter 2 is water. A whole lot of water. And with the addition of all this water has come a new mode of transportation for players to master, that being the boat. Boats pose a great benefit to the player if they are willing and able to master them. One great way to get an advantage over your opponents would be to spend some time getting comfortable with boats before they do.
Customize your controls
Fortnite allows players on any console or system to choose from a wide range of different control schemes, and these different schemes can make all the difference for players who may prefer one over the other. If you haven’t already, go into the settings and start trying the different control schemes to figure out which one is right for you. Your control scheme might become your secret weapon in guaranteeing victory in every match.
