Fortnite: Battle Royale Tips


These tips are more for beginning players, but if you've been playing a while you might find somethings that you didn't realize you could do!


Probably something you've already done, but you need to have very quick access to your building keys as well as being able to switch your guns quickly. Some players re-bind their pickaxe key so they don't accidentally pull it out in a fight and bind 1 to their first gun and change the rest down the line. The most common place to rebind your keys to is to your Mouse 4 & 5 buttons. These are on the side of some mice, and are generally used for going forward and back on a web page.


All the good players you see on Twitch aren't wearing headphones as a fashion statement. You can better hear footsteps and where shots are coming from with a pair of headphones. These don't have to be super high quality, even the earbuds that came with your phone are better than nothing. Be sure to have the volume fairly loud so you can better hear footsteps more reliably.


To reduce the things you have to think about when you are in a fight you should try and place your guns always in the same spot. For example, I always slot an AR in the first weapon slot, shotgun in the second, smg or sniper in the third and fourth spots, and grenades/healing/shields/alternate in the last two. The last three can vary based on what I have, but I ALWAYS put my AR in the first slot and my shotgun in my second. This makes it very reliable for me when in a fight to quickly switch to the correct guns for the situation without having to think about it.
How I do it might not work for you, so feel free to change it up to suit your needs! Also, I wouldn't do this in the middle of a fight but if you get a spare second while looting or you are healing/drinking (it won't cancel your shield/bandage, you can even move stuff into the place of whatever you are consuming) then these are the times to do it.


Curious why some players seem to be getting lower than you are and landing before you out of the bus? They are aiming as straight down as possible and heading for the lowest points on the map. You pull your glider out at a certain height based on what's below you, so you'll want to look for the lowest point on the map and head directly for it. Once you pull your glider out you can better assess where you can land. This takes a bit of practice to get a sense of when you need to exit the bus and how far you'll be able to reach.


While you are gliding in towards your potential landing spot, be sure to look around at where your enemies are landing. This will give you a sense of what you are up against and how quickly you are going to need to grab a gun. If someone lands in the same house or building that you do, you know you immediately need a gun (even more so than usual). If you find a decent one, you should immediately go for the kill so you can prevent them from finding themselves a gun, and drinking shields that you should be drinking. Getting frags on unarmed opponents is one of the easiest ways to get kills, so this is a high priority.
You also want to try to avoid landing in the exact same building/area as another player when possible. Either they might get a gun before you or they could just start hacking away at you with a pickaxe. It rarely ends well unless you are super confident in your ability to nab a weapon before them.
If you get a decent mid to long distance gun immediately, then try to use it to get a few easy kills. If you landed quickly you will likely have a chance to take shots at people who are still gathering themselves or hacking into buildings/houses. Use this advantage to take out your opponents!


One thing I see a lot of people do is leave good loot behind. Unless you absolutely need to move from an area, make sure you get every piece of loot you can. Check all of the known chests spots, go through houses that haven't been looted. You'll likely need all of this loot, and every chest opened is another chance to improve your weaponry or gain more healing and shields.


Another thing I notice about newer players is they take forever to loot. You need to loot quickly, so you are covering a lot of area and can move towards the next area you need to be in. You'll want to have a set idea of what guns you want to run and what slots you'll need them in. Also, don't worry about picking up small ammunition if you have no plans to run a gun that uses it.


This will come with experience, but you should try to land in only a couple of different spots so you learn the chest spawns. Once you've got a couple of spots down, then try moving to different spots and learn those locations.


As you run from destination to destination be sure you are hacking away at trees and wooden palettes (these generally have a pretty good supply of wood and can be found in buildings and other various areas). I recommend continuing to do this until you have at least 500+ wood. As you advance against better players you'll be surprised how often you are running low on wood and other resources.
If you really want to be advanced then don't break the trees you are gathering from. Why? Because this allows people from a distance to see where you are! When a tree is destroyed the animation of its destruction is pretty easily spotted and noticeable. So if you really want to be crafty then hack down the tree to the last hit and move on without breaking it.

Other Resource Tips

Notice that small blue circle that pops up when you are harvesting something? If you aim at that on your next strike with your harvesting tool it will gather the resource faster (essentially like a critical hit!). This allows you to break down walls/trees/boulders much faster and should be something you are doing when you are harvesting.

Gather up enough resources for a ramp or two in the early game because this gives you a big advantage over people who have limited loot and no resources. You often will automatically win a fight in the first few minutes just by being able to build a ramp or two.

You can harvest brick more efficiently by mining the various boulders that are scattered around the map. These are similar to tree for wood and yield quite a bit of brick.

I don't usually try to harvest metal, you will often gather it from looting areas and the players you slay on your way to victory.

Don't Harvest Walls for Resources

Unless you are absolutely desperate for resources to protect yourself in an early fight then don't harvest resources from walls in houses or structures. It is WAY faster to harvest trees, wooden pallets, and stone boulders. If you are in an area that doesn't have a lot of trees, it is good to hack away at furniture just to get enough resources to protect yourself in any engagements.


If you are in a building or behind a wall against an up-close opponent you should hug up to the wall and look around the corner/door via the third person view. This allows you to find your opponent and have an advantage over them. Once you've got them located you just need to sidestep out enough to fire and then quickly sidestep back while your shotgun reloads (usually this is a shotgun battle).


This seems a bit weird, but when going through a pile of loot you should equip your pickaxe so nothing you pickup will swap out what you are currently carrying. You don't want to accidentally pick up some bandages and drop your weapon and then get into a fight while bumbling around trying to re-grab your weapon. This method completes stacks of all stackable items without swapping out anything like bandages, medkits, shield potions, etc. Looting this way is also extremely fast, make it a priority to grab up all the loot you can whenever possible. It may even be worth heading into the storm for a brief period just to nab some shields or other high quality items (particularly if you have a medkit or camp fire!).


Probably one of the things I'm shocked by the most is how often people just stop moving. Unless you know you are without a doubt protected from every side then you should virtually never stop moving. If you are drinking a potion or using a medkit you can shimmy side to side making it harder for someone to come along and snipe you in the face. Never be just sitting in a fort peaking your head out and looking at nothing because this is a one way ticket to eating a bolt-action sniper shot and listening to music in the lobby.


Supply crates hold a lot of good loot and you can keep track of them by shooting at it once. When you do an HP bar will show up that is easily seen through walls or mountains. This also makes it easier to know if the crate has been popped giving you a chance to take out anyone nearby. If you have a surplus of ammo you can even just shoot it down if you know you are safe to do so.


A real easy way to get yourself killed is by forgetting about the storm. The first and second storm close in faster but have further to travel, so it takes a while t completely close. However, you won't be able to outrun these circles if they get close to you. After those two circle, you can outrun them closing in on you. It's important you are aware of which circle number is coming and plan accordingly. You'll want to play it a bit safer on the second circle for sure. You usually have enough time to reach the safe zone from most areas during the first close because of how long it takes to start and how far it has to travel.
If you are really far away from the safe zone, then you might want to avoid taking fights. Any long battle can cost you precious time, but if you are for sure going to be in the storm and don't have the health, then you might just need to take a risk and take down an enemy in hopes that they have healing items.
If you do think you are going to die to the circle, either pick up bandages (replacing another item if necessary) and/or a med kit, and try to run out while healing. Keep an eye on how much damage the storm is doing to you, it ticks every second (damage increases in the higher circle stages once it closes) so you will need to calculate how many seconds you can delay before using a bandage or burning your med kit (bandages take 4 seconds to use and med kits require 10 seconds). Also, check and see if you have a launch pad. It's easy to forget you have one because you might have a trap or campfire occupying your trap slot. The final option is to grab impulse grenades and jump yourself out. Never give up, even 1 hp is enough to get a win!


Now that you are a bit more familiar with the game, take a look at these more intermediate tips.


If you've made it this far in Fortnite Battle Royale then you know how important building can be. A way to increase your abilities in this area is to learn when it's best to use what kind of material and how to edit your buildings.

Building Materials

Wood used to flat out be the best material because you could farm it reliably and it started with the highest hp. This is no longer the case, Metal is now the best because it starts with the highest hp and it has the highest max hp. This now means you should try to harvest brick and metal as much as possible. You can then use it to ramp rush or build if you are know your enemy is going to try and spam you down.

Starting Wall HP: 90 for Wood, 100 for Brick, 110 for Metal

Max Wall HP: 200 for Wood, 300 for Brick, 400 for Metal

Protect Your Ramps

If you are fighting someone and trying to ramp above them then you can protect your ramps better by building a wall right in front of them. You don't need to build the wall first, you can build it through the ramp which gives you a chance to continue to build upwards. This can also help you in general fights, keep building a wall in front of your ramp so you don't fall down.
Trying to build a tall ramp? Make it double or triple wide so you don't immediately have someone break the single base ramp and drop you from the sky! If you have a wider ramp it requires your enemies to destroy all of the ramps in a row to knock down the entire ramp. If someone doesn't realize this be sure to shoot out one of the ramp pieces behind them so they fall to their demise!

Editing Builds

Something you might not even attempt early on is editing you or your teammates floors, ramps, and walls. Walls and Ramps are made up of 6 squares (3x3 grid), and Floors and Roof/Pyramids are made up of 4 squares (2x2 grid) that can be edited by using your designated edit key (check your binds, G is default on PC). Once you click on some of these squares in the edit mode and confirm it will make a window, a door, or shorten a ramp, etc based on what you removed. This can get pretty intense as you will see from the graphic below, but you will generally just want to know how to make a door as you will find yourself wanting to get out of a box quickly, and making a half ramp can help get you out from under a ramp you might have accidentally built above yourself.
The very basic and key edits you'll want to know is how to make a door in a wall, a 1/3 wall, and a half ramp. A door is a quick way to just get through a placed wall. The 1/3 wall can help when a door is not possible because the bottom squares are below ground or not accessible. The half ramp is commonly needed to get around a ramp you built that can block a door or an exit path. Check out this is great reference guide below. I take no credit for creating it, it was made by Abyssal Heaven on Reddit. You can click the graphics below to enlarge.


Obi-Wan Kenobi tried to teach Anakin Skywalker that the high ground was extremely important and he is absolutely right! You have a huge advantage by holding the high ground over your enemy and can land easier headshots while only peaking part of your body and not allowing them to get an easy shot. So when you enter a fight with someone you should be building above them immediately, holding your advantage, and eventually finish your enemy from above. If they try to build a ramp next to your fort/walls remember that you can build a quick floor over their ramp and deny them access.


Now that heading seems obvious, but it's not exactly the point. What you want to do when you are firing rockets at a structure is not just fire them at the bottom of the base. You want to try and slide the rocket into the interior of where they are sitting. This can be accomplished by either building up high and shooting down into the base. This will not only do damage to the player, but can also destroy multiple pieces of the structure. Another way to accomplish this is to fire a rocket at the wall they are sitting behind and knock the wall out with a gun. This can take some precise timing, but you are hoping to break the wall right as the rocket arrives so they can't put up a wall to block it.


Most people seem to panic when they have rockets flying at them and I don't really blame them. However, all you need to do is throw up a single wall in-front of the rocket and you will be fully protected. Grenades are much harder to deal with as they can bounce behind you or explode awkwardly and catch you when you don't expect it.
Expect players to attempt the above tip by knocking out your walls with other guns, so be sure to add a ramp or be prepared with an additional wall if you are taking heavy fire.


If you have built yourself into a structure and aren't sure where the enemies are, you can put a roof on top of it and enter edit mode on it to freely look around while staying protected. You used to be able to edit a wall and see through it freely, but this new way allows a similar amount of vision.


If you are in a build battle and the enemy is above you on a ramp you can place a Roof or Pyramid piece right above them so it blocks them from getting any higher. They will have to readjust and build in a different direction while you can use this chance to take back the high ground.


If you are crossing high ground with someone below you they can easily just shoot our your floors, however, if you place a floor and a pyramid on top of them then you are double protected from getting spammed down. This should give you enough time to reach wherever you are trying to get to without getting knocked down.


If you are forced to fall from a tall area or your build gets broken down, you can land to the side of a tree to negate some of the fall damage you will take. All you need to do is slightly bump the tree on the way down and it should reduce how much damage you will take!


If you get boxed in by a player they will sometimes quickly throw a trap on the wall hoping that you will be impaled. You can avoid this by immediately running to the opposite side of the area you are trapped in. The trap will still likely go off, but you will not be hit by it. You then have a small period of time while the trap resets, you can break the trap or bust the wall you are closest so you can escape!


If you are knocking down a high structure with a player or two in it, then don't just stand there waiting for them to fall down. If they are good players, they will immediately start building once they get close to the ground. Build up a quick structure to have the high ground while they fall so you can keep the advantage to yourself.


Now we're getting a bit more advanced. These tips can be very situational, but when you are starting to really get good at the game, every little improvement is a big deal.


When you are in a fight and you can control which side you are going to be peeking, you should always try to do it on your right. The way the game has its shooting model favors the right side of the screen. So if you were to come out of cover on your left side, you will need to expose more of your body before you are able to shoot.


This tactic can be used if you have an enemy that is enclosed in a box or behind a wall that is just spam replacing them. Try to break their wall down to a very low hp so your next pickaxe swing breaks it down. Break the wall and immediately replace it with a wall of your own. You might have to try this a few times because they can replace it before you get a wall down. If you do get the wall down, you can then edit a window in it and hopefully land a finishing shotgun shot. This can take a bit of practice overall, but it's a strong tactic against someone who is just spam building.
Note: Always be careful when you are facing someone that is behind a wall they built. A good player will just edit it themselves and take a shot at you if you stand too still.


One of the best ways to get kills and have a big advantage over enemies is to always be right at the edge of the safe zone circle. Players will be rotating in from different areas to try to get back to the safe zone, if you are already safe and have a small little tower built you can fire at them while they are forced to move towards you. This is especially good when they are just running out of the storm, they should have taken some damage and are wanting to heal. You can take advantage of their vulnerability for easy kills.


Want to have a good idea where the majority of players are going to be coming from when the circle is closing? Then you should try to remember where and which direction the bus flew in the beginning of the game. If it was a northern bus, then you won't have to worry as much about the southern part of the map. If the map started in the east and flew directly over Retail Row, then you know a lot of people got out there and it's already looted. You can apply this logic to various points on the map which can help you decide where you want to go next.
Keep in mind that places like Tilted Towers, Retail Row, and Pleasant Park are generally always going to be popular no matter where the bus flew.


Some of these items at first glance can be looked at as joke or weak items, but they can be utilized to their full ability by a crafty player.

Camp Fire

This was made more for squads to heal themselves, but this is a good item for getting yourself healed to 100 HP if you only have bandages or are out of healing items. You can also place this and build a ramp over it and slowly heal while engaging if necessary.

Launch Pad

Being able to ride the storm and get out of danger in a pinch is very useful. You can also use this to flank around large structures and potentially land in them without your opponent knowing.
To get further be sure to immediately deploy your glider, but if you are getting shot and want to drop quickly you can put away your glider and it will drop you down quite quickly.

Boogie Bomb

If you want to counter an aggressive opponent or give yourself an easy kill then the Boogie Bomb can be a big help. The length of time a player will dance isn't very long, but it should be long enough for you to shotgun them in the face.


If someone is chasing you through a building then throwing down a quick trap can divert the person or kill an inexperienced player. You can also just place traps on a ceiling in front of a door that can catch people off-guard and lead to easy kills. Try to remember where you lay the traps, because you might want to go back and collect the loot of the unlucky person who got skewered.

If you have an enemy above you on a ceiling you built, you can quickly edit a hole in it and place a trap on a wall so they fall right into it.

If a player is under a stairwell, you can place a trap on the wall that should be able to hit them if they are turtled up in that space. You can also do this to people that you've ramped above. If they are trapped below the ramp you can put a trap on the wall to the left or right.


To really push on people in the game these days you need to make sure you are protecting your build before you get shot down. Using three different pieces of structure should provide you with enough protection to close the distance. As you are running, start with a floor and hold down your build key, then immediately swap to the ramp and then wall keys. This will build all three layers extremely fast, and you can repeat this as you move up in height. I highly recommend practicing this in Playground to get it down completely.


If you are firing down on someone with a shotgun, you shouldn't jump off your high ground. What you can do instead is jump and fire your shot and then immediately place a floor. This will protect you from any incoming fire while your shotgun delay comes up, you can then edit the floor to create room for another shot, or fire at them from this newly place floor and then repeat the process. It is always safer to keep the high ground because you have a significant advantage when you do.

Fortnite: Battle Royale Tips
Source: https://fortnite.fandom.com/wiki/Fortnite:_Battle_Royale_Tips

Fortnite: Battle Royale, being the PvP aspect of Fortnite, presents players with a various number of ways in which they can be killed by the opposition. As if that weren't enough, the very nature of the map can do so to the inattentive rather quickly. Below is a collection of tips gathered from across the web and from personal experience that should help you reach victory royale.
These tips are for beginners and may include something even well-versed players might not know. Feel free to add your own!


When crouching, your footsteps don't make as much noise. If you're planning on jumping someone close to you, crouch as you move towards so they cannot hear your footsteps.

You'll die frequently with the number of people on the map and the nature of the game. Rather than focusing on "winning", focus on your match duration and perfecting techniques.

Many of the player's actions make noise: running, sprinting, gathering, building, shooting, and using things like doors. Sprinting also leaves behind a dust trail. Be aware and have the volume up to know when players are around. This will prevent them from sneaking up on you.

Live to fight another day. Ambushing and patience is often the better way of taking out opponents.

Whenever possible, stay out of the open and use cover if you must move. Just remember that most cover can be destroyed.

If you come across a shield potion, use it quickly. You don't start out with a shield; if you have one, it will deplete before your health.

Shields protect from most weapons and traps. It does not protect you from the storm, fall damage, stink bombs nor poison dart traps.

You can gain shield points by drinking a small shield potion, Shield Potion, Slurp Juice (gain 75 health or shield over a period of time) or a Chug Jug which restores 100 health and shield points. Mushrooms give 5 shield points and coconuts can give up to 5 shield points if you are full health.

On the flip side, save some of those health-restoring items for later in the game.

Players start with max (100) health

Bandages return 15 a piece, but don't heal over 75. They take 3.5 seconds to consume.

Med Kits and Chug Jugs can heal to max no matter what degree of damage players have taken. A Chug Jug takes 15 seconds to consume whilst a Med Kit takes 10.

Drink small shields before a shield potion, this will allow you to have 100 shields. They take 2 seconds to consume.

You do take fall damage, but you can quickly build structures beneath you to halt your descent if you have something to build off.

If you happen to come across a player fortification, such as a tower, it might be best to avoid it. The player who built it likely has most of the advantages when it comes to a confrontation, including the high ground, scoped weaponry, and cover. Approach with caution.

Building with the same material as another fort negates the noise made by your structure. Use this to rush 1 x 1 bases with ease.

In Squad or Duo mode, try not to get knocked down as you lose all your shield, and if revived, you will have only 30 HP.

Other situations where caution is advised is when looting players and nearing loot drops. Enemies will typically hear or know the locations, so you can hang back and wait to either make sure no one else is approaching or use it as an opportunity to ambush others.

Players building tall structures are at risk of the bottom being destroyed and the rest of the tower disappearing, leaving the players on it vulnerable to fall damage. Be wary of this when building, but also use this to your advantage when you see other player's buildings. You can set up a launch pad before your building is destroyed and use it to escape, or use a Glider Redeploy to avoid falling damage.

If you have no weapons, the pickaxe will do 20 damage per hit.

If you get stressed out about not winning, take a deep breath, and repeat after me. “I will not win every time. If I want to win I must work on my skills.” Followed by more deep breathing before starting a match. Good luck.

If you wish that you had special skins, gliders, emotes, contrails, then buy the battle pass, it’s only 950 V-Bucks and you get LOADS OF COOL STUFF! If you manage to reach tier 100, you will end up with 6 awesome skins, too many emotes to count, and 4 contrails, and a ton of V-bucks, so you can buy the next battle pass with no real money! It’s an outstanding deal, so take a look. Plus, you will have up to 500 V-Bucks per battle pass. (Note: remember, you need to EARN the rewards by playing the game).

If you're not sure where where the safe zone will be, activate glider(while the storm is forming) and do nothing. This will lower your risk of getting killed and the risk of landing in the storm's range.


The first big decision players will make is where to land once they depart from the bus.

Landing as far as possible does mean you would be less likely to get killed or shot, but doesn't help with improving skill.

Land at popular locations or jump out at the start of the bus path if you want some action.

Weapons are found mainly inside buildings, so target those areas.

Be cautious when dropping to buildings, other players will have a similar plan, and areas with buildings typically attract more players than areas without. There are trade-offs of choosing areas with more items and players, or areas with fewer players but less items. Pick your position.

Deploy the glider sooner rather than later in order to fall slowly and cover more distance. This allows you to scout out where others might be landing in order to avoid early confrontations. However, if you do decide to do this then chances are other people will have landed there and gotten a weapon. Even if you are gliding you are not invulnerable.

When you decide on an area to land deploy the glider as late you can and slightly away from the area you are trying to reach. Then glide at an angle to the place you want to land. This will get you to the ground quicker than gliding straight down. If you use a volcano vent on your way down, it will allow you to deploy your glider closer to the ground than normal.

Instead of going to populated areas, try to tackle less populated places as hardly any players landing means all the loot is to yourself.

To get somewhere far away from the Battle Bus, spam the deploy glider button and you can go further.

The Map

Take note of the direction of travel the bus makes during the drop-off phase. Players will be landing at spots along or near this line and spreading out from there.

Pay attention to where the storm circle is on the map; players won't last long outside of it.

Knowing where the ever-shrinking circle edges are is helpful, as players will need to move away from it.

One late-game strategy is to keep the storm at your back. By doing this, you can be sure that players will not attack you from behind (due to the storm killing them).

One early-game strategy is to maintain a position at the edge of the storm, moving around the circle and picking off players as they attempt to make their way to safety.

To check where the bus is going, you can check the map before the bus takes off, and you can see an arrow pointing to that direction.

The storm will usually do one damage every second and the damage ascends the longer it is into the game. Shields are useless as the storm cannot do damage to shields but instead will chip away your health.

Depending on the distance to the circle, the storm can be much faster or slower than the player - the further you are from the new circle's edge, the faster the storm moves.


Close doors after using them to avoid tipping off players as to your location. To the unwary opponent, this can also serve as a useful ambush if you're waiting on the other side.

Tires and fire hydrants can launch you into high places, but if you don't reach the position you are trying to get to, it could result in loss of health or death.

Checking above you can be of vital importance. You could find player-built structures and can check the tops of mountains for players.

Check a room for traps before entering. A common trap is a damage trap on a roof.

If hiding in a bush, note that some weapons, when equipped will poke out more, giving away your position. Also, if on a slope, you can be seen hiding in it from certain angles. If using the equip-able bush, pay special attention to your surrounding when moving.

In certain biomes, there are different consumables that are lying on the ground. Some give different boosts.


With your trusty Pickaxe as your only option at the start, use it to gather resources quickly. Keep in mind that doing so will potentially hint at your location to those close by, as breaking some things are louder than breaking others.

Gathering early is much easier than waiting until later in the game, as the map is tighter, the player population is denser, and resources more scarce.

Make sure to collect lots of wood, as it is the easiest to collect and the most common material used for building. It starts out with the most amount of HP, making it useful for fast-paced combat.

Smashing cars can set off their alarms, alerting players of your location. This also affects police cars.

When a tree is destroyed leaves will fall from the sky and will possibly give away your position.

Players are the best source of resources, but be careful, or else you may end up with the enemy killing you. Killing them will result in all of their items dropping to the surrounding area.

When harvesting, aim for the blue and red dots as they do 100 damage to buildings rather than 50. Doing this can make you harvest much easier and faster.


Learn to navigate the building interface quickly, as building can be performed during combat.

Building creates noise and player-created structures stand out.

Wood is the go-to resource to use in a pinch, since it takes the least amount of time to build with and is the easiest to acquire.

You can use your walls and such to protect teammates that have fallen in battle.

Learn how to set designs to your forts so you can have an advantage when building. The most useful things you can edit in a building are windows and doors.

When editing things you can only edit your own and your team's structures. This is an advantage if someone is inside their building or in a building because you can break the building, add a wall then you can edit, without the enemy editing.

Make sure to also build a roof on top of you as to prevent players from ambushing you while you are looting, sniping, or reviving a teammate.

With wood and bricks, you can look through the holes to see if there are any players, but it’s far better sight line if you make a window.

When building forts with no players in sight, use metal, or if you don’t have any metal, use brick.

learn building tactics they are useful during combat.


Place slot weapons and items consistently in the same spots so you never have to wonder what is where. This makes swapping out very intuitive.

It is recommended to put your Assault Rifle in slot 1, shotgun or SMG in slot 2, SMG or shotgun in slot 3, snipers or explosives in slot 4, and meds or shields in slot 5. You can enable a setting in Fornite to automatically put meds and shields on your rightmost slot.

Know what the rarity of a weapon is and trade them for better options as you run across them.

The more rare weapons are generally found inside chests that give off a golden glow and a hum. They're typically hidden or require some sort of construction to get to.

Common - Grey
Uncommon - Green
Rare - Blue
Epic - Purple
Legendary - Gold

If you're going to go up against a player fortification, bring heavy weaponry. If you know what you're doing, you can bring the building down from beneath them.

Supply drops always give one legendary weapon (2 weapons in Team Rumble).

If equipped with close-range weapons, a more aggressive play style is effective. Rifles and sniper rifles lend themselves to a more measured approach. Jumping is a good idea.

Don't pick up every weapon you see. Stick with a good set and then upgrade those as you go. Shotguns are a great staple, especially since a lot of firefights happen at close to mid-range.

Don't stop to pick up ammo. This happens automatically as you run across it.

Keep in mind that bullets leave tracers, so people can tell from where they are being fired.

Crouching with a mid to long-range weapon can help increase accuracy.

To make a good sniper, you will have to predict where your target will go, and what movements they will make.

To take into account bullet drop, you should never put the crosshair directly on your target's head. Instead, place the second bar below the crosshair on the target's head. This will usually work.

You will need to calculate how long it will take for the bullet to travel, an estimate of how far your target is from you, and how far the bullet will drop.

It is recommended to aim in front of your target so that they run into the bullet.

If the enemy is moving steadily in a direction, try aiming in front of them. If they are standing still and at a great distance, take into account bullet drop.

Snipers are the loudest weapon in the game, and can be heard from a large distance, so be wary when firing, as someone may come up behind you and take you out easily. The silenced sniper helps to be more sneaky.

Tiers and Earning/Getting Skins

Team Rumble can easily get you tiers because if you die you just respawn.

If you have a lot of v bucks then you should get a skin but it is your choice.

You cannot buy tiers unless you have the battle pass.

If you are one of those money savers than you can get the battle pass for only 950 v bucks.

You earn tiers by completing challenges or leveling up.

You can also get skins from tiers but you need the battle pass in order for that to happen.

Do simple chores to earn money, once you have 10 dollars then spend it on 1,000 v bucks.

If you have Save the World you can earn v-bucks through Storm Shield Defenses, Daily Quests and Mission Alerts.

If you don't want to do the hard work than try to earn 5 dollars so you can buy a pack like the laguna pack or wild pack (etc).

If you don't want to work to earn stars than just use the party assist button.

When you level up in tiers than you can earn free stuff like v bucks or even skins.

Approach people from the back slowly so they don’t see you.

Help your teammates by giving them things they need and reviving them.
