Let Them Destroy Your Wall & Fire Back Immediately

Step 1: Put Up A Wall To Lure Your Enemy

Putting up a wall would make the enemy want to destroy it in order to expose you to their fire.

Step 2: Line Up Your Shot

While the enemy is chipping away at your wall, line up your shot in their general direction. Take into consideration how far the enemy is when lining up your shot. A far-off enemy may need you to aim with a sniper rifle.

Step 3: Fire Away As Soon As Your Wall Breaks

Firing immediately after your wall breaks gives you an advantage since the enemy will not suspect an immediate counter-attack. You also have more bullets in your magazine while the enemy may need to reload!

Two Or More Targets Can Disorient The Enemy

Having two targets shooting at the opponent may cause them to panic since they would have to choose who to fire at first. Use their confused state to your team's advantage!

Focusing Your Fire Can Eliminate Enemies Quicker

With you and your teammates shooting at the same target, more bullets will be able to hit the enemy, and deal more damage quicker!

Assess Your Situation

Before taking on an enemy, you first need to see whether you will come out of the encounter alive.

Know When To Run Away

There is no shame in running away in Fortnite. After all, your main goal is to survive! Assessing your situation first is important to know whether engaging in combat is worth it.

What Gun Is The Enemy Using?

Knowing what gun your enemy is using can help you plan your counterattack. For example, you'd want to keep a safe distance if the enemy is using a Shotgun! Plan your strategy according to your enemy's weapon!
