If you are going to be using guns to kill enemies, you will want to make sure that you are taking your time and you are aiming for the head. This is going to be the best way to kill enemies. If you are using a gun that has a scope, you are going to want to zoom in on the enemies and aim for the head.

Tip 4: Multi-Tusk

Tip 5: Practice with the Building Tool

The building tool is the most important part of the game. You can use it to quickly build walls, stairs, ramps, and floors. Practice with the building tool and you'll find it much easier to make things in the heat of battle.

Tip 6: Use the Center of the Map to Get Your Bearings

You must be aware of your surroundings, while you are engaging with the enemy, you must also be sure to know the location of the safe zone. 

Tip 7:  Always Stay Moving – Fortnite is a game that does not take place in one area. You will want to stay moving as much as you can.

The only time you should stop is when firing or to heal. You will find that if you are moving you will be harder to hit, and if you are not moving you will be an easy target.
