Fortnite Frenzy: What’s the Deal?

Two of Eagle Eye’s finest talk straight from the Fortnite gospel.


Fortnite: Battle Royale is a free game that is beyond popular today on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation.

If you are new to the game, it can be difficult to get started, but with a few tips, we’ll help you get to Victory Royale in no time.

“Only land at Tilted Towers and if you don’t, you’re trash,” said senior Fortnite expert Jake Meredith, about how to get good and start winning games.

Some other tips include: Hitting your shots, land at Dusty Depot, don’t hide in a bush, don’t be trigger trash, and most important might be to learn how to build, it will help in fighting situations.

While the ultimate goal of the game is to be the last person standing, for many experienced players kills are what the game is all about for some.

Fortnite extraordinaire and Eagle Eye’s very own Kolby Cowher has several tips to get kills. “If you want kills, make sure you bounce on over to Tilted Towers and grab yourself one of them Pump Shotguns real swift. Once you got one of those pups you’ll absolutely decimate everyone in sight,” said Cowher.

There are three different modes that are always available, Squads, which consist of four people, Duos, which consist of two people, and Solos which is one person, and sometimes special modes that are only available for limited times, such as the snipers and revolvers mode.

In Squad and duo modes, players can get knocked before they are actually eliminated, giving them a chance to be revived by a teammate.

At the beginning of each round, players fly in on a bus and pick a spot on the map to land and pick up guns and ammo. The matches consist of around 100 people and the goal is to be the last, squad, duo, or person depending on which mode you are playing. There are a lot of very skilled players out there and it can be difficult to get a win, so don’t be discouraged.

One of the nice things about this game is that the developer, Epic Games, is always coming out with new updates, constantly adding new items so the game never gets old.

New items in recent weeks include the heavy shotgun and another limited time mode called “Blitz” which gives you less time to loot and increases the quality of loot.

Also, with each new season, players have many opportunities to earn new things, and they can purchase the battle pass which gives players lots of goodies.
