Downloaded it earlier. Played a match before school. And I sucked. Bad. Had a sniper and missed like 10 shots and got killed.
What's the aim principals of fortnite??? Lol
There's bullet drop over range so you have to lead your shots. Snipers are very tricky to learn in the game. The AR and Tac Shotgun are the easiest guns to use for beginners. Stick to the smaller cities it makes much easier/enjoyable when your first starting out. If you just want balls out insanity land Tilted Towers every time and just try to outlast everyone else who lands there.
Yeah the sniping is very hard to get used to.
I'd recommend flying into the no named spots. Flying into the less populated spots is the key when learning the game. It allows you to get some decent gear without getting mowed down all the time, and allow gives you the opportunity to learn how to build. There is a place east of Junk Junction, houses north of Tomato Town, the prison in the SE corner of the map, those are the kind of places I typically fly into. I also recommend looking at flying into places not directly in line with the bus route, most people just jump early and fly straight down, waiting until later and flying to a farther away spot is really the key to learning the game.
For the game itself, always do what you can to have the high ground. Crouch when you shoot and don't move when shooting as much as possible. Jump when you're in a shotgun battle. Crouch walk in more populated areas so you can hear footsteps (and don't make sounds yourself). Always keep mini shields in your inventory as well as bandages. Don't ignore explosives, even grenades are helpful later in the game. And once you get the basics, learning to defensively and offensively build is really key, just a wall and a ramp to get above someone in a fight is huge. Then learning how to build a fort is important later in the game as I swear the final circles always end up pushing to a hill, so whoever sets up shop on top of that hill ends up having a huge advantage unless you have rockets or the mini gun for destroying a base.
I typically try to get my set up as follows: AR / close range gun (goes tac shotgun, silenced pistol, SMG, pump shotgun) / longer range (scoped AR or sniper) / shield / healing. If I can get that setup in the first 2 circles I'm usually pretty happy. Then as the game goes on you'll kill guys and get to replace certain things. Like in the last 10 or so, if I get a RPG, I'll replace the sniper with that, RPGs are really the difference maker late in the game.
Those are the biggest things that I've found. Once you get better and make it further into the games, you'll have to learn how to manage the map and the movement of players towards the circle. Nothing more frustrating that having a sick set up and have a guy with no guns really get the the height advantage on you and wreck you because you're just running around.
Once you get the hang of the controls and the basic building, I'd recommend flying into really populated areas for a while, learn how to shoot guys. I play sometimes with a friend and he's got a few wins and a pretty high score on the game, but his wins he's never had more than 2 kills. He will literally sit in one spot if its in the circle and just wait, you can do this if you're lucky to get a good gun to start, but remember, once you kill someone they drop everything they had, so someone that has 5-6 kills has done the looting of 5-6x as much as you have.
