#GamingBytes: Five easy tips to win your first 'Fortnite' match
This Battle Royale keeps adding new and exciting content, drawing new gamers every day.
As a result, the competition is tough and newcomers might find it hard to win the Victory Royale.
Here, we bring five easy tips to win your first Fortnite game.
Plan your landing location, also land quickly
The first step to a strong start in Fortnite is planning your drop location.
Try and land in areas that do not see too much action.
Further, try to land quickly, so you hit the ground faster and can pick up some loot, thus preparing you for the firefights if you encounter opponents.
Jump from the Battle Bus accordingly and play on!
Be aware of sights and sounds in the Battle Royale
Spotting your enemy first is half the battle won when you are playing Fortnite.
Therefore you have to keep your eyes peeled for enemy presence.
Even if you cannot spot your enemies, be sure that you have good quality headphones and turn up the volume in-game.
This way you can listen for enemy movement and be aware of their presence and position.
Master the art of building in Fortnite Battle Royale
Fortnite has an additional dynamic aspect which requires players to build structures to gain a tactical or defensive advantage.
What newcomers must realize is that Fortnite is a building game first and shooting game second.
Therefore, to win Victory Royale you must stock up on resources like wood, stone, and metal and build structures strategically to gain an upper hand over opponents during combat.
Always keep moving during the game
It is really simple. A moving target is harder to hit than a still one.
Therefore, it is highly unwise to stand still especially in open areas during the game. You will just be a sitting duck for a player with a good scope.
Always keep moving. Even if you play a camping game, ensure you have ample cover before lying still and waiting.
The only kill that counts is the last one
It might be the easiest thing in the world to want to shoot all opponents you see in the match, especially when you are fighting against 100 players.
However, the trick is to not fire unnecessarily.
As I keep saying, the only kill that counts is the last one.
Therefore, if you can, try winning the Victory Royale playing a stealthy game of survival.
