1. Practice for 60 Seconds

Click on “play” whenever you are ready to play the game. Initially, Fortnite will load  in a holding area which is known as “Spawn Island.” Moreover, you can practice as much as you want by picking up weapons, ammo, and building materials.

So, after a minute you will find yourself with 99 other random players. Moreover, you won’t be able to take all those items that you have collected on the spawn Island into the game itself.

2. Flying on the Battle Bus

After you finish with your practice on the spawn Island for a minute in the spawn island, you’ll automatically find yourself onto the “Battle Bus.” Moreover, It flies with your player in the air and transports you across the map. It will inform you that when you can jump into the game.

Moreover, you can use the spacebar key on the keyboard of your laptop to jump. If you want to slow down your descent, you need to press space key again to use your hand glider.

3. On the ground

When you land on the ground, you try to find weapons and resources, and at the same time, you have to save yourself from getting killed by your opponents. However, if any opponent eliminates you, then you have two options.

Moreover, You can continue to spectate your opponent’s game from their perspective, or you can quit and start a new game. By doing so, you can analyze your opponent’s gameplay and strategy.

Later you can apply them in your gameplay to get a victory. Moreover, you can check whether your opponent eliminated you by using cheat tools.

4. Staying out of the Zone

If you are in the match for some time, then an indicator pop up will be visible. It will inform you whether the zone is shrinking. Now, check your Map and go to a safe area inside the circle.

Moreover, by staying outside the safe zone, your health will decrease. Most players eliminate by waiting outside of the region. Overtime zone gets smaller and forces you to stay in small spaces. One player who left standing gets the victory Royale.

Final Words

I tried Fortnite a battle Royale game first time on my PC when Fortnite released its first season. However, it was a low-end Laptop. But still, I had a great experience. Fortnite helped me in improving my creativity level because of its construction concept.

Although Fortnite faces tough competition from pubg, still I would say that Pubg focuses on killing whereas the main focus of Fortnite is creativity.
