New to Fortnite?

Here are a few tips for first timers to help you get that Victory Royale:

  • Building is your friend – throw up a wall to stop a barrage of bullets, or use those stairs to snag a chest from the attic!

  • Explore the map – the island is full of surprises that will help you claim Victory Royale. Find fresh apples to recover your health, search chests to complete challenges or land a stunt in an ATK to show everyone you’ve got style.

  • Fortnite is better with friends – the best way to learn Fortnite is by playing with friends. Squad up and enjoy a game of 50v50 or Playground!
