Things Squads Should Prioritize

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!

Prioritize Versatility

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.

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.

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.

Stay Together When Exploring

Being close to each other when exploring the map helps members of the squad quickly react to sudden events such as ambushes. Here are some things to remember when exploring!

Prioritize Survival

If there is a danger of you or your team getting eliminated, it's not worth it. Prioritize the survival of your team and know when to engage and disengage from enemies.

Communication Is Key

Communication is essential for teamwork so use the Voice Chat and talk with each other. Provide callouts, share your location at all times, and talk about strategies so your team can react faster!

Things To Remember When Exploring

Fortnite's map is very big, you never know when or where an enemy team may be planning an ambush. Here are some things you need to remember when exploring Fortnite's map!

Be Careful When Using Vehicles

Vehicles like the ATK can seat up to 4 players, and help you move around faster. However, using the ATK is loud and can attract enemy teams. Weigh the pros and cons of the ATK before using it!

Stay Near The Edge Of The Safe Zone

Staying near the edge of the Safe Zone will almost always guarantee your safety since enemies tend to go to the middle of the Eye. Try staying at the edge of the Eye and only moving to the center when the Storm starts to shrink!

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.

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.

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.

Playing With Friends & Waiting In Queue

Playing with your friends to get the Victory Royale is a different and fun way to experience Fortnite Battle Royale. Friends who have a Battle Pass can also help you level up faster since they may give off bonus XP!

Playing With Friends

Send out "Party Invitation" to your friends so you can play squad mode together. You can also join the party of friends if someone else will act as the party leader.

Be "Ready" to Avoid Waiting in Queue

Make sure that all Squad members have clicked on "Ready" as you won't be placed in the match maker unless this is done!

Use Your Time Waiting In Queue To Strategize

You can plan out your strategy for playing in Fortnite while waiting in queue. You can talk about where you're landing, who splits up with who, and more while waiting for the match to start!
