Once you have the basics down in Fortnite, it’s time to start implementing strategies to take your game to the next level. Here are seven advanced tips to help you become a better player.

Edit1. Baiting into a Trap

Place a trap above an entrance where players are likely to run in without looking. Drop a rare item underneath the trap and watch as eager players run right under the trap. Make sure to stay nearby though as fully health and shielded opponents will not die to a trap.

Edit2. Avoid Fall Damage

Falling anywhere above three stories will result in fall damage. The more momentum you have while falling, the more damage you’ll take. Avoid taking damage by building a flat wall every three stories as you go down a steep surface. If you’re going down a tall cliff, try facing towards the cliff to slow down your momentum and potentially negate fall damage.

Edit3. Mark the Supply Drop

Shoot at the balloon of a supply drop to display its health meter. This allows you to keep track of it while it drops. If you see a health meter appear without you shooting it, expect another player to be camping it. Use this information to your advantage by sneaking up and watching the drop as opponents go for it.

Edit4. Experiment with Building Edits

Once you get the hang of general building, start playing around with the modifications you can make while editing a structure. You can remove three tiles in a corner to slice a wall diagonally, allowing you to shoot without making a ramp. Editing out one tile on a floor creates a hole, allowing you to drop lower into a tower for a quick escape. Practice these edits until you can do them quickly during the heat of battle.

Edit5. Cover Loot

Sometimes you’re loaded with great loot and you’ll have to leave powerful weapons behind. Build a roof segment over any leftover loot to prevent scavenging players from picking up the goods. The random roof segment can also attract curious players, leaving them exposed for a kill as they try to break through.


Edit6. Impulse Grenade Movement

Hold onto Impulse Grenades to help you out of sticky situations. Need to get out of the storm? Throw one down as you run by to propel yourself forward. You can use them to push downed teammates out of the storm as well.

Impulse Grenades are great for knocking enemies off of structures but have you considered using one on yourself during a fight? Use the momentum to surprise opponents. Don’t be afraid to shoot while flying!

Edit7. Rocket Ride

Rockets can be used to soar across the map if timed perfectly. In squads, have a player with a Rocket Launcher stand about one building segment away and aim the rocket at the other player’s waist. Once the second player jumps, wait for that player to reach the maximum height of their jump before firing the rocket. If done correctly, the player will land on the rocket and be sent flying.
