7 Battle Royale Shooting Tips

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Fortnite

In order to win a Battle Royale, and multiple no less, you will need to know how to fire your Weapons. On top of this, you will need to know all the advantages and disadvantages of shooting specifically during a Battle Royale. The shooting mechanics at being successful in a Battle Royale varies than when you are participating on Missions. If you're looking to maximize your shooting capabilities during a Battle Royale, then definitely take a peek at our tips for doing so below!

7 Battle Royale Shooting Tips

1) Always cover your left side. No matter what Weapon you use or the type of character you have, your weapon will always be placed and shot with your right arm. Because of this, the left side of your character's body will usually be vulnerable. Because of this, try to make sure your left side of you body is covered before unloading a round.

2) Crouch to steady your movement and increase your accuracy. Moving around too much will make hitting a foe with accuracy extremely difficult. If you're looking to nail an enemy with accuracy, try crouching to halt your movement and improve your odds.

3) Keep your Weapon's crosshair as small as possible. By doing this, you will increase the accuracy of your shots. Moving will make your crosshair grow, meaning your bullets will land anywhere in between its circle. As you may guess, this will decrease the chances of you actually hitting an enemy. Stand still and aim properly to shrink that crosshair target immensely.

4) Headshots are nice, but aren't always the best. Headshots can be extremely difficult to orchestrate, especially with enemies that are a ways away. They might do the most damage, but in these cases, a direct shot to an enemy's gut will ultimately give you a better chance at bringing them down.

5) Pick the right Weapon for the right situation. When in close combat with an enemy, the shotgun gives you the best chance at defeating said other player. When you're trying to hitting an opponent at range, then try using a rifle or even a sniper gun (if they are extremely far away).

6) Remember distance when attempting to snipe others. If an enemy is stationary and are within fifty or so yards from you, you can aim directly for their head in order to land a headshot. However, if they are a hundred yards or even further away, you must aim high as the bullet will no drop while in air for this long. Read this when going for those extremely long range shots.

7) Practice makes perfect. While in the lobby before participating in a Battle Royale, practice shooting others, especially those that are moving. While alone in a Battle Royale, you can even practice shooting and aiming with street signs and other Weapons. By doing this, you will learn exactly how to aim and shoot both stationary and moving enemies.
