What Are Duos?

Duo is a game mode in Fortnite Battle Royale wherein teams of two players battle against each other to be the last team standing! Here are some things you need to remember when playing in Duo Mode!

Things Duos Should Prioritize

Have Each Other's Backs

A team of two only has each other to rely on. Losing one member of the team immediately puts the other at a disadvantage. Remember to take care of each other out there!

Communication Is Key

Being able to talk to each other via voice chat will make it easier for the team to strategize and keep tabs on each other while exploring in Fortnite!

Sharing Loot With Each Other

Sharing loot will help the both of you optimize each other's loadouts so that the team will be able to face any situation that may come up during the match!

Focusing Your Fire

By focusing your fire, you will be able to increase your chances of more bullets hitting the enemy. Having both of you shoot at the same enemy will help you get out on top of team fights!

Optimize Your Loadouts

With only two members in a team, it is important for the both of you to have a versatile loadout so you can face any situation in Fortnite!

Prioritize Versatility In Loadouts

It is recommended that a loadout should have 1 weapon for each effective range, and 2 healing or shield items to increase your team's survivability!

Share Your Weapons With Your Teammate

Sharing your extra weapons with your teammate who actually needs them will help your team optimize their loadouts to prolong your survivability!

Share Your Items With Your Teammate

In Duos, you only have each other. Losing your teammate will put you at a huge disadvantage against other teams of two. Remember to share your items with your teammate to keep them healthy!

Communicate With Each Other

Voice Chat is an important tool when playing in Duos. It helps you strategize your next moves, keep each other in check, and more!

Strategize Your Next Moves

Before running into the next area, take time to talk to your teammate about your next move! They may have a better plan that could avoid trouble with other players!

Keep Tabs On Each Other

In Duos, once you lose your partner, that's it. It is best to keep track of your partner's location at all times. Also, do not be afraid to ask for help since this is a team effort!

Create A Strategy Before Combat

Having a solid strategy will help your team come out on top in team fights. A well thought out plan is better than blindly charging into enemy fire, and getting eliminated!

Someone Shoots While Someone Builds

Having someone build cover while someone provides covering fire allows your team create a structure that provides both cover and high ground while the other focuses their fire on the enemy!

Focus Your Fire On A Single Target

Once your structure is built and you have the height advantage, you can now both focus your fire on a single target! This increases your chances of getting a headshot since you both have the height advantage!

Make Sure You're Safe Before Healing

It is important to keep your teammate alive, but it would be better if healing them would not cost your own safety.

Build Sturdy Structures While You Heal

Having cover around you before reviving a fallen teammate will decrease the likeliness of you yourself being shot!

Going Solo

You can play solo in Duo Mode, but that is highly discouraged as you will be at a disadvantage. If you ever decide to go solo in Duo mode, we wish you the best of luck!
