Fortnite is divided into 2 game modes, a pay-to-play PvE (Player vs Environment) and a free-to-play PvP (Player vs Player) known as Fortnite Battle Royale. In this guide I will be telling you everything you need to know about Fortnite Battle Royale.
Fortnite Battle Royale is set out in a continuous story separated by seasons of the game, which last about 2-3 months; within that time you have challenges and unlocks to accomplish/achieve (paying for a Battle Pass will make it a lot quicker). Also playing with friends is recommended as it will make the whole game a lot easier to play and in the end goal, win a match.
When starting a Battle Royale game there are four modes to choose from, each involving 100 players to be in the game; solo, duo, squads and 50v50:
Solo- yourself vs 99 other players
Duo*- yourself and someone else vs 98 other players (49 teams of two)
Squads*- yourself and three other teammates vs 96 other players (24 teams of four)
50v50*- yourself and 49 teammates vs 50 other players
*if you do not have any friends to play with you, there is the option to fill your team with random players to be on your side.
When starting the game (all modes are the same) you will begin on a loading island where you can press M to open the map and plan where you would like to head to first, bearing in mind areas that will have a lot of loot will be denser with enemies. After the loading island finishes, yourself and all the enemies will be inside the party bus that flies over the map, from there you can jump out the bus at your chosen time and dive to the area you want to loot first, once you are close enough to the ground you will deploy a glider to ease your fall automatically. Once you have touched the ground you will only have an axe which can be used to destroy fences, cars, buildings and even damage an enemy a small amount. You will want to enter a house/building to find any guns that are scattered around and find a loot chest (loot chests will make a sparkling noise and will grow in sound as you get closer to it) which are normally hidden in the roof of houses and in trailers/containers.
There are an assortment of weapons of which include; grenades, pistols, shotguns, assault rifles, snipers and heavies. It
