Tips To Win In Soaring Modes

Fly to Escape the Storm

You can explore the edges of the map and stay far from the eye until the last minute. Gliding allows you to escape the Storm much faster than the usual land routes.

Build To Fly

Building stairs high enough will let you redeploy your glider when you jump off! Gather lots of materials to make high stairs and cover lots of ground!

Core Gameplay Still in Play

Remember that aside from the flying element, Battle Royale rules still apply! Don't completely abandon your play style when playing in this mode.
