As Epic Games’ Fortnite continues to grow in popularity, more and more people are jumping on the (Battle) Bus, meaning it’s harder than ever to get that elusive Victory Royale. Give yourself the best chance you can with these tips and tricks from some of the biggest names in gaming.

ADJUST YOUR CONTROLLER LAYOUT

When playing on console, making sure you adjust your in-game controller settings is key. ALI-Arecommends switching your layout to the Combat Pro configuration to make combat feel a little more natural and building more intuitive. Configure your controller outside the game with some Performance Thumbsticks and Performance Grips for the best results.

GET THE RIGHT TOOLS FOR THE RIGHT JOB

A well-rounded loadout is key for success. RINOCRUNCH says to be prepared for any situation and grab yourself a shotgun for CQC, AR for mid-range, sniper rifle for long range engagements and meds for shields for defense.

BE A MASTER ARCHITECT

Whether you need to get to high-ground to grab loot in a Treasure Chest or throw up a makeshift 1x1 fort to protect yourself from unsuspecting enemy fire, CHAOSXSILENCER says you need to learn how to build! If you can build the most basic of structures, your chances of survival go up 10 fold.

WIN THOSE 1v1's

You can get pretty far by avoiding enemies through stealth, but you’ll have to engage other players 1v1 if you want to win. THE GAMER COUPLE notes that jumping when engaging enemies at close-range makes it harder for them to hit you and easier for you to land headshots. To be as precise as possible, we recommend using our CQC Signature   Performance Thumsbticks for added height, range of motion and accuracy.

FARM THE RIGHT MATERIALS

Per DAKOTAZ, you must be well-stocked on building materials. You can’t build without wood, stone and metal. So make sure you take time to farm materials so you can build cover mid-firefight. It’s often the difference between winning and losing.

GET THE HIGH GROUND

You’ll have a tactical advantage over enemies and will make it more challenging for them to get clean shots off on you, says THATDENVERGUY. This is especially helpful in mid-to-long range skirmishes.

BE ACCURATE LONG-RANGE

You must be able to take out enemies from a long distance with a sniper rifle.ITSNICK says to give yourself the biggest aiming advantage possible by using a set of KontrolFreek Performance Thumbsticks. We recommend FPS Freek Galaxy for sniping!
