Fortnite can be frustrating when you constantly come up against players who are more skilled than you. This gets even worse when you come up against a toxic player who does the ‘Take the L ‘ emote after killing you.
Fortnite also gives players incentives to get better at the game. Firstly, you get a free umbrella after the first game you win in a new season. In this ‘Primal’ season of the game, you can earn the ‘Foundational Umbrella’ themed after “The Foundation”, a member of The Seven who helped Agent Jones stabilize the Zero Point.
Lastly, Fortnite hosts multiple tournaments like the “Flash Cup”, FNCS, and even ‘The Fortnite World Cup”. These offer players that place in the top percentage rewards in the form of prize money and skins.
How to improve your Fortnite skills
When you enter a game of battle royale, a lot of your time is wasted roaming the map and searching for loot. While this is an enjoyable experience for some, there are more efficient ways of getting better at the game.
In his recent YouTube video ‘Stormranger‘ details two such methods. He advises players to hone their skills in the creative mode, as it is a less time-consuming method.
If you enter island code 8064-7152-2934 you will arrive at the ‘BHE 1V1 BUILD FIGHTS’ island. Here, you can choose from an array of top weapons in the game.
Next, you can fight multiple players at once or focus on a single-player depending on your skill level. The reason this is so much more effective than playing battle royale is that once you die, you respawn instantly. Thus, it saves you the time of joining a new game and looting up.
Another creative map he suggests is one for box fights and zone wars. A good map to practice this can be found by entering code 3515-0375-5877. Box fights are more resemble a real game of battle royale better as you have to move with the storm.
The last tip is to keep a record of the reasons you lose a fight. This way you can pinpoint what you are weak in and improve on it accordingly. These tips are applicable whether you are on PlayStation, PC, or Xbox.
