Fortnite or more specifically its Battle Royale mode, is pretty great. It’s sort of like The Hunger Games, only with fewer mutant wolves.
Basically 100 of you get airdropped onto an island where you go running around looking for guns and loot and taking each other out until there’s only one person left standing.
Just for a note: I am not a pro in the game either, but if you are new to the game then this tips might help you.
1. Don’t go straight towards a town:
So when the game starts, you are on a lovely airbus and all of a sudden 50% of the players get of the bus. Well for them it might a regular thing, but as you are new to the game make sure you don’t leave the bus as soon as the game starts. Maybe jump out of the Battle Bus when it’s halfway across the map, for instance, and fly to a house that’s a good distance from the path it’s taking.
Remember until you are well equipped with guns and building materials, you definitely should avoid fighting.
2. Don’t forget to equip yourself properly:
When you land you need to stock up, quickly. In the early stages you’ll want to get a close range and mid range weapon ASAP (ideally a shotgun and an assault rifle) — this will give you at least a half-decent chance against opponents both indoors and outdoors. Later on in the game, you’ll ideally want a decent assault rifle, shot gun, some explosives (a rocket launcher; a grenade launcher; grenades), a long range weapon (a nice bolt-action sniper, for instance), shield(s), and some bandages/a med kit to heal yourself if you take damage.
3. Don’t neglect the building materials:
Wood, bricks and metals may not be that fascinating but you definitely need them. You’ll need plenty of wood to scale mountains and buildings while you’re travelling around the map, and bricks and metal will come in super handy later on in the game when it comes to fighting and fort-building (more on that later, though).
4. Don’t run for every battle:
Well if there is someone jogging nearby and if you have a clear aim, then you definitely should take a shot. If you watch one person take out another player, then they stop to heal or pick up the dropped loot? Get them
5. Buildings are your true friend, so don’t forget to build them:
Imagine yourself in a place where a enemy is shooting at you, quickly build a wall or a ramp to save yourself. Building a wall will avoid the bullets and the ramp will help you to aim at the enemy from a certain height(which is an advantage).
The other most important type of building to learn early is the 1×1 fort. It’s simple, but super useful in the end game phase. Basically, you surround yourself with four walls, build a staircase, then jump and build another four walls a level higher up. Repeat this a couple of times, and soon you’ll be at the top of a miniature tower — a nice little bit of protection that will also allow you to peek out and shoot down on enemies.
