Jump Shooting Is Used To Disorient The Enemy

Jump shooting is a technique used by players in Fortnite. This technique is mainly used to disorient the enemy, and make your movements unpredictable!

When To Use Jump Shooting

Jump shooting is best used in close quarters combat since there are some accuracy penalties when you move around a lot.

The Pros of Jump Shooting

Consider adding this technique to your bag of tricks the next time you play Fortnite Battle Royale for the following reasons:

Higher Chance Of Headshots

Jumping will give you a slight height advantage to enemies. This gives you a better view of the enemy's head! Shooting down also increases your chances for a headshot that deals critical damage!

A Moving Target Is A Harder Target

Don't make opponents simply aim from left to right! Make them aim all over the place by jumping around them.

Jumping Makes You Unpredictable!

Jumping around enemies has a chance of disorienting them. Use their panic to your advantage and pick them off with ease!

The Cons Of Jump Shooting

Remember that Jump Shooting is not the only key to Victory Royales in Fortnite! Remember these things so you don't jump back into the lobby!

Jump Spamming Has Penalties

Mashing the Jump button in combat has some penalties! With each successive jump, your movement speed becomes slower, while your jump height gets lower. Consider jumping in different intervals!

Moving Around Has Accuracy Penalties

Running and jumping can reduce your aim accuracy! Remember that this technique is not the only way to win in Fortnite!

Jump Shooting Tips

Mix It Up!

Shoot Downwards

Shooting downwards while jumping will increase your chance to deal critical damage since the enemy's head is more exposed to you! Shoot downwards at enemies, and send them back to the lobby!
