Fortnite Battle Royale Aiming and Shooting Tips



Getting first place in Fortnite Battle Royale is a difficult but rewarding accomplishment. To be the last one standing, you’ll need to have a better understanding of the shooting mechanics. Here are seven tips to help you maximize your aiming skills.

1. Crouching for Accuracy

Jumping around and making yourself a moving target makes it harder for an enemy to land a shot, but it also greatly limits your own aim. When using a medium range weapon like the assault rifle, crouch to steady your own movement and focus in on your target.

2. Managing Bloom

Bloom is a very real mechanic in Fortnite combat. Bullets fired from your weapon can land anywhere within the inside circle of your crosshair. Understanding that the size of your crosshair changes depending on what you’re doing is vital during combat. Jumping makes the crosshair larger and harder to hit your enemies, while standing still and aiming in shrinks the crosshair considerably. Everytime you fire your weapon, the bloom of the crosshair will expand so shoot in controlled bursts rather than holding down fire.

3. Where to Shoot

We all want to line up and land headshots, but sometimes this is not always ideal. Because Fortnite is such a fast-paced game, it may be better to aim for the center of the body instead of the head when your opponent is farther away. You won’t get the damage multiplier for a headshot, but getting a guaranteed body hit is always more beneficial.

4. Understanding the Combat Situation

The great thing about Fortnite is there are so many different combat opportunities. In close range situations such as running through a house or infiltrating a fort, pulling out a shotgun is smarter than just running in with a rifle out. In 1v1 situations, you can spend your time jumping around to make it harder for your enemy to hit you, or you can stand still and try landing your shots to eliminate your opponent as quickly as possible.

When you’re in a fight and start getting hit by a different opponent, make sure to build around yourself and then push to one opponent. If you don’t commit to fighting just one player, you’ll inevitably become pinched in an unfair fight.

5. Target Practice

Whenever you get the chance, try finding an object like a street sign and try to keep your crosshair on it as you move and jump around. When you’re in the lobby, spend that time aiming at moving players. Aiming and target acquisition eventually comes down to muscle memory and can only be developed with repetition.

Landing in populated areas to engage many players is also a great tip. Even though you die multiple times at Titled Towers, it’ll get you prepared to fight in fast-paced combat situations.

6. Remember the Bullet Drop

Snipers can be deadly and being able to land headshots is a very valuable skill. From about 50 yards away, aiming right for the head on a stationary target should do the trick. Once you reach 100 yards and further, you’ll have to account for bullet drop. The best way to practice this is to just find a sniper rifle and get a feel for how high you have to aim up to compensate for the bullet drop.

7. Cover Your Left

Your gun overlooks your right shoulder and there is currently no way to switch to the left. With this in mind, always try to fight with the left side of your body covered. If you peek out of cover from the left side of a structure, you’ll have to expose your entire body in order to fight.

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far




The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.

Leaked Map Stages

All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.

Leaked Quest Voice Line

Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.

A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:

“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”

Doomsday Landmark

According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.

Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.

Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go Unvaulted Until April 25




In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
