A Few Ways To Feel More Like A Pro While Playing Battle Royale
When the heat of the battle starts, you’re likely to sense the gap between you and those hardcore gamers who’re on the verge of turning pro.
Still, that’s no reason to wave the white flag. Familiarize yourself with a few of these basic ideas and you’ll give yourself an advantage. Who knows - maybe you’ll even be the last one standing!
Get Comfortable With All Of The Items - Whether it’s weapons, equipment, or tools, follow the advice that Superjump Magazine lays out to familiarize yourself with all the available goodies. Since each item has its own strengths and weaknesses, understanding each of them will give you an advantage, especially if it comes down to the end of the game and you have to make do with what you’ve got.
Survey The Lands - In games like Fortnite where you’ll be playing with a continually shrinking map, knowing the terrain you’re competing on is extremely important. Insider argues the merits of this strategy, suggesting that as the clock winds down the players who can use the features of each map to their advantage will outlast the rest of the field.
- Study The Pros - Just like you’d watch Steph Curry to master three-point shooting, why not watch the pros go through their routines in your favorite game? You might pick up on a trick or technique that took them years to master that you can start to implement right away. Shorten the learning curve and head to Twitch or YouTube to start mastering the fundamentals.
Winning may not happen on your first, second… or even your tenth try. But it will come. And whether you celebrate that victory with a Fortnite dance or immortalize your achievement with this video game coin, we’re sure it’ll be the first of many.
