Whether you are a novice or a veteran, check out our guide to becoming a true survivor!
Start by choosing a good landing spot
This is the first decision you have to make in the game and one of the most important as it will influence the rest of your game .
All players start on a battle bus and skydive to their landing point.
It is best to try to fall into a sparsely populated area . Locations with large structures and towns are sure to be full of players. Therefore, avoid these zones early on to increase your chances of survival.

What are your first goals?
In Fortnite: Battle Royale , 100 players will be placed on a map and only one of them will survive long enough to be the winner. So you need a lot of materials, weapons and ammunition to succeed. These are the goals you should focus on at the beginning of the game:
- Priority items such as shotguns, sniper rifles , medicines and shields will be critical to their survival;
- Never leave ammunition behind as you don’t want to run out of bullets at a crucial time;
- It is important to build stairs to stand high and walls to protect themselves;
- Get as many resources as possible. Ideally, you should have about 300 of each material at all times.

Important: Managing My Resources
You may be lucky enough to pick up materials from the ground or by destroying chests. However, the best way to do this is by cutting down trees and breaking stones . The problem with this method is the noise it makes as it will attract other players to you.
Before you start collecting your resources, look closely at the area around you and try to see if you can hear any movement. Start working only when you are sure you are alone .
Despite the risk, this method will pay off, as you will not be able to survive later in the game without enough materials to build defense structures.
Open doors mean danger
Usually finding an open door means one of two things: either someone is still inside the building picking up items or someone has already taken all the valuables and escaped with them.
Although the first scenario is not always right, you should assume this possibility. Enter cautiously and close the door so as not to be caught off guard.
Stay down and use traps
Always try to move lower unless you are forced to run for any reason. This will make you much less noise and also become a smaller target, making it harder for enemies to hit you.
It is important to place traps in busy areas such as building entrances and other places that you know many players tend to pass. Even if you don’t kill an enemy at once, you will still be able to deal great damage.

How to make money
In Fortnite: Battle Royale you can buy cosmetic items with V-Bucks.
The easiest way to have these coins is by buying with real money . However, there are lighter alternatives to your wallet.
By entering Fortnite’s solo version every day, you get a daily reward that may contain V-Bucks. Also, by completing quests in this version of the game, you can earn various items, schematics and V-Bucks.
However, if you are restricted to Battle Royale mode, there is no way to access these alternative ways to get rich.
Play with headphones
Fortnite: Battle Royale uses directional audio, which means you can understand where the sounds come from in the game. This information is very important to avoid ambushes .
Use your headphones to enhance this possibility and use sound information to find out if you are in danger.
Choose your battles carefully
Finally, a very important advice for those who want to survive in this game: be patient and cautious . Never start a shootout unless you are confident that you will kill your opponent quickly.
Also, don’t shoot from a distance if there is a chance of failure, as this will only draw opponents’ attention to your presence and location.
