Even though it only released in September 2017, the free-to-play Fortnite Battle Royale has already changed massively in the months since fans first got their hands on it.
With tweaks constantly being made, the game is much more than the bare-bones experience it used to be, with the developers constantly making updates to improve the experience, introducing a new economy system, skins and weapons that give you even more of an incentive to do well on the battlefield.
While winning used to just be for the bragging rights, the introduction of challenges and a levelling system makes being in the top few players of every match even more appealing, as you stand a chance of being rewarded with cosmetic loot and a higher rank.
Consequently, the game has become even more demanding and deadly as players are pulling out some imaginative tactics to score the highest places on the leaderboard.
However, as players become more acquainted with the game and old tactics become outdated, it's important to keep one step ahead of the competition. So whether playing solo, as a duo or in groups, these essential tips will allow you to claim that top spot in every single match.
10. Keep Building If An Enemy Pulls Out A Rocket Launcher
You shouldn't need to be told to keep stocked up on crafting materials. While a lot of players jumping into the game might not see the point in building things unless absolutely necessary, your crafting abilities can often come in handy in scenarios where conventional weapons are useless.
For instance, if you make it late in the game there's a good chance you're going to run into someone brandishing a rocket launcher. If you don't have something powerful enough to return fire or find yourself without cover, it could seem like fighting back is useless; but this is where building might just save your life.
Because placing down walls between you and the enemy while they fire off rockets is a good way to goad them into wasting all of their ammo. Keeping on the move and placing obstacles that can take the brunt of the explosions will keep you out of trouble, and allow you to make the perfect counter attack when they finally run empty.
