Here are some things that a squad should prioritize in order for them to become the last team standing!Check Out This Survival Guide & Tips
Focus Fire On Single Enemies
Focusing your team's fire on a single target will increase the chances of a bullet hitting that target! It is recommended that teams fire at a single target to down those targets faster!
Stay Together With Your Team
Staying close to your team eliminates any danger of you being singled-out by enemy players! By staying close, it also helps you provide back up to your teammates who need help!
Revive Your Allies
A downed ally can drag your team down since the squad has one less member to contribute! Remember that getting the Victory Royale tastes so much sweeter with all your teammates alive to share it with!
Keep Yourself Safe
Just like an ally, the team would suffer if you are not there to help in your own way! Remember to keep yourself so you can help out your team!:
Optimize Your Loadouts
Having everyone in your team with a good loadout will allow your team to be able to face any situation during the game! Here are some things that your team should prioritize when gearing up!
It is recommended that a player has 1 effective weapon for each range, at least 1 healing item, and maybe 1 utility item so you can adapt to any situation that happens on the battlefield!
Share Your Weapons And Ammo
Got an extra mid range weapon? Share it with your teammates who need it! It will allow your squadmate to join you in focusing your fire onto a single target later on. This also applies for close and long range weapons.Check Out Weapon Management Here
Share Your Items
Sharing your items with teammates that have no shield or healing items will prolong them in the game. If you have any extra items, give them to teammates who need them and they'll thank you later.Check Out Item Management Guide Here
Have Lookouts When Looting Buildings
Don't all go inside buildings or houses. Have one come in first to sweep the area and once its clear, have three enter and one stay outside to keep a look out for approaching enemies. Share your items later after looting.Check Out Spotting Enemies Here

Stay In Groups Of Two
When the Squad needs to seperate, try splitting into groups of 2. This way, each member of the team has someone else covering their back and can provide assistance if needed!
Be Opportunistic In Combat
Whether your team likes it or not, you may need to engage other Squads in combat during the later phases of the game. Here are some things to remember when deciding to engage enemies in the endgame!
Choose When To Engage
Timing is essential to being able to come out on top of team fights. If you see two teams fighting, wait it out take advantage of the victor's vulnerable states and send them back to the lobby!
Focus On One Enemy At A Time
Try to focus down on enemy at a time and knock them down. Remember that enemies who are down cannot shoot back and anyone who tries to revive them will be a sitting duck.Check Out How to Improve Your Accuracy
Shoot From Different Angles
Pressure enemies from different angles. Try to maneuver at each side of their location and fire at them from both sides.
Use Downed Enemies As Bait
Don't eliminate enemies just yet as you can use them as bait. If someone tries to revive them, shoot down the enemy ally.
Coordinate Shooting And Building
Spread your manpower. Have someone make cover while the other members provide cover fire to keep the team safe without sacrificing the agro.Check Out Building Basics Here
Revive Teammates Safetly
Surround yourself in sturdy cover before attempting to revive teammates. It won't do the team any good if you both get downed for risking a revival.
