What Is Crouch Shooting?

Crouch Shooting is a technique employed by players in Fortnite Battle Royale. It helps them improve their aim and makes them to become smaller targets for enemies.

When To Use Crouch Shooting

Use crouch shooting when engaging enemies! Crouching when shooting at mid to long range enemies also improves your aim!

Pros of Crouch Shooting

As a player, why should you consider adding this technique to your arsenal? Here are a few reasons why you should think about picking up this technique!

A Smaller Target Is Bad For Enemies

Some guns start to lose their accuracy when shooting at further away targets. By crouching, you are making yourself smaller, and, therefore, a harder target for the enemy!

Improve Your Aim By Crouching

Wildly moving around such as jumping and running may have some accuracy penalties to your weapons. Crouching lessens the bullet spread from your aim so consider crouching when aiming at further away enemies!

Ambush The Enemy

Crouching lessens the sound you make when you move. Unsuspecting enemies may not hear you creep up from behind them. Use this to get the jump on careless players!

Cons Of Crouch Shooting

With all of the advantages of crouch shooting, there are still some disadvantages for you to work around.

A Crouched Target Is A Slow Target

Even if you are a smaller target, you are still a target. An experienced enemy may be able to hit you from afar even though you are crouched down! There is no shame in running away! Survival is your top priority.

Tips for Crouch Shooting

Mix It Up!

Primarily shooting while crouched will make you an easy target! Jump and weave into a crouch to keep them guessing your moves!

Use It To Ambush Enemies

One big advantage of crouching is that it moving around makes less noise than normal running. Crouch shoot unsuspecting enemies to surprise them back into the lobby!

Pop In And Out Of Cover

A more advanced technique that players use is to aim down at where they believe the enemy is while in cover, then pop out, shoot, and pop back into cover!
