Given the massive popularity of games like PUBG and H1Z1, you might be familiar with the battle royale genre. However, Fortnite: Battle Royale is a tad different from its competitors. The game takes the base premise of the genre and gives you the ability to rapidly construct fortifications, like walls and stairs, allowing you to protect yourself and create your own tactical environmental-based strategies.
Since its debut as a free-to-play mode last year, Fortnite: Battle Royale has been quickly increasing in popularity. As a result, there’s no shortage of new players jumping into the game for the first time every day–you might be one yourself. To assist those looking to come out on top, we’ve detailed in the video above some of the common mistakes new players make, as well as ways to improve.
The most common mistakes we highlight in the video above include:
- Not Mapping Building Actions To Hotkeys
- Forgetting To Build Under Fire
- Forgetting To Knock Down Enemy Forts
- Landing In Hot Spots
- Forgetting To Share Health Items
- Picking The Wrong Weapon
Of course, preparation and being a team player when playing cooperatively are proper solutions to these starting behaviors, but if you want more specific details on each of these points, be sure to watch the video above.
