Survival is Your Utmost Priority
Keep Moving To Stay Alive
Staying in the same spot for too long will eventually end up risking your survival. Keep an eye for any suspicious movement, and move as often as you can. Camping is a viable strategy only when enemies are coming at you.
Listen & Look Out for Suspicious Movements
Keep your eyes open when navigating around the battlefield. Open doors, crumbling trees and suspicious buildings means someone was close by. Listening for enemy movement is also a viable option.Check Out How To Spot Enemies
Don't Let the Storm Damage You
Balance your time. Loot and explore, but make sure you have enough time to get inside the circle.Check Out How to Survive the Storm
Know When to Use Vehicles
Only use vehicles when you're sure you can't enter the circle before the storm hits. Using a vehicle can notify enemies of your position and make you an easy target.Check Out How To Use The ATK Here

Choose Your Control Scheme for Consoles.
Consoles have 4 different control schemes: Combat Pro, Builder Pro, Quick Builder, and Old School. Change your control scheme to one that suits your play style!
Select Strategic Locations To Land In
Each area has its advantage and disadvantage. Remember that areas with a lot of loot also attract a lot of enemies.Check Out Map Locations & Details Here
Select Areas with High Ground/Cover
Land on areas where the Party Bus doesn't directly pass through. Areas with high ground and lots of cover are ideal for sudden combat.
Loot Weapons & Items
Keep your eyes open for treasure chests or ammo and guns lying on the ground. Loot for crafting materials as much as you can.
Have Recovery Items Ready
Keep Health and Shield items at hand. Use them after every engagement or when needed. Just make sure you're behind cover before using them or you might be caught in the open.Check Out Health & Shields Here
Have Enough Ammo
What good is a gun without ammo? Loot all the ammo you can find. Guns come with limited ammo so make sure you're prepared for a fight.
Manage your Resources
A well-placed wall could mean the difference between life and death, especially as the number of players dwindle. Gathering at least 300 of each crafting material is recommended.Check Out How To Gather Building Materials
Know When to Enter into Combat
Don't engage in fights that you are not sure you can win. If you're low on resources or weapons that don't work in the situation you're in, like having a sniper rifle for close combat, just back off.
See two enemies fighting it out? Just let them fight until a winner emerges. This is a good time to ambush them as they still have not recovered from their fight.
Utilize the High Ground
Getting the High Ground can easily turn a battle. Cliffs provide a wide view of the area. Look out for trees or buildings being knocked down or moving vehicles. It is also great for snipers.Check Out Build to Take the High Ground
Make Quick Covers
Although wood is the the easiest material to break, it is the fastest to build. It can provide quick cover as you crafts walls with better materials so better stock up.Check Out How to Choose Building Materials
Balance Your Loadout
Have two slots saved for shields/health items and the other two for weapons. The last one can either be for grenades or port-a-fort as they can turn the battle to your favor.Check Out Loadout Tips
Select the Right Weapons
Mid-range weapons like assault rifles and submachine guns are practical for their balanced range, weapon damage, and ease of use. Having at least one can help you in intense gunfights.Check Out Best Weapons - Gun Tier Ranking
Duos and Squad Battle Royale is very different from Solo. Know how to play as a team and you'll easily get to the Top 10.Check Out How to Play Duo Here
Communicate with your Team
Know your strengths and work together. One teammate can build cover while the other shoots or help pressure enemies from a distance while the other rushes in.
Use your Fortnite team chat or other voice chat channels to give callouts and talk to each other. Notify your team of any enemies, loot, strategies, and your location.Check Out How To Set Up Voice Chat
Keep Each Other Equipped
Share loot with your teammates. Keeping all the good guns to yourself will weaken your team. A good balance is to have each have good gun and different items like traps and Port-a-Fort for use.
Fighting as a Team
Focus Down Enemies
Focusing on one enemy at a time is more strategic as bringing down one of them is better than having them all at low health. Remember: A knocked out enemy can't shoot.
Build to Trap Downed Enemies
Trap enemies in walls to keep their teammates from reviving them. Keep pressuring the rest of their team so they have no chance of breaking down the walls.
Safely Revive Your Teammates
Make sure you have cover in place or the enemies have been dealt with before attempting to revive your teammate. It takes a few seconds to revive someone so you'll be vulnerable as you do so.Check Out Choosing Best Building Materials
