There are plenty of people who tell you how to get good at Fortnite, but most of them focus only on WINS. From a veteran Battle Royale player, I am here to tell you that wins mean nothing if you don’t have KILLS to go along with it (looking at the people who post Fortnite wins on Snapchat).

So, why should you listen to my advice? That’s simple, with an average of 17 kills per game on PlayStation and 12 on PC, not to mention a personal record of 22 kills in a win, I know what I’m talking about.

Here are my four can’t-miss tips for high-kill games in Fortnite: Battle Royale:

1. Build first, shoot second. Building as a whole is a core mechanic in this game. You NEED to know how to build, how to build quickly, and how to build effectively. Are you getting shot at? BUILD A WALL! Getting pinched? Build a fort with a ceiling, take a moment to recover, and heal if needed.

2. When in a fight, play as the aggressor. A lot of people panic when getting shot at. Take advantage of that. While they hide behind that rock or tree, push them. Beware though, as some players predict the situation, and capitalize on one wrong move.

3. Use the uphill advantage. Why is having a height advantage on your opponent so important? If you’re above a person, your opponent has limited vision of you, meanwhile, you have their entire body in your sight. This will increase your chances of winning the gunfight.

4. Last but not least, don’t spend a ton of time looting. If high-kill wins are what you’re looking for, grab a weapon, and start shooting. Your mentality should be “I can’t let other people get into fights.” YOU need to be the one taking the fights. Need ammo and supplies? Quickly sweep the opponent you just eliminated, picking up ammo, and higher tier weapons. This should only take about a second or two, then move on.

Of course, there are other factors into getting higher kill games, such as landing zones, and circle placement, but with these tips, no matter where you land should be able to improve your kill count as you achieve that highly-sought-after Victory Royale!

    whats your gamer tag?

  4. Devin Phillips on April 9th, 2018 10:42 am

    good article but the title is misleading. because you are talking about the smaller PVP game mode and not the whole game.

  5. Jarron Bower on April 9th, 2018 12:55 pm

    Which smaller mode? The PvP mode that is the reason Fortnite has blown up to what it is today? The same mode that has overshadowed PvE? Face the facts, PvP is indeed the leader in playerbase. The “Smaller” mode you’re thinking about is indeed Save The World

  6. Christian on April 9th, 2018 2:20 pm

    jarron i think you made a typo you mean the pvp is the leader in player base. pve is save the world

  7. Jarron Bower on April 10th, 2018 8:14 am

    Fixed, thank you!

    What is your advice for when someone like me is trying to kill someone like you

  9. Jarron Bower on April 9th, 2018 12:57 pm

    Building is essential. You need to immediately push for high ground (Building ramps counts too) and if you see any opportunity to heal, use it

  10. christian ortiz on April 9th, 2018 12:25 pm

    I didn’t know you played on PS4, whats your PSN?

    Thank you Jarron for the amazing tips, ever since I read this article my win rate went from a 21.7 to a 97.3, and now Instead of camping in my bush getting one kill, I camp in my tower averaging 23 per game.

    Make sure that you always land near Loot Lake. There you can find loot in the lake and grab up sum for yourself to fend off all the scallywags who dare to confront ya.

  23. christian ortiz on April 10th, 2018 12:35 pm

    Just saying man, DONT go loot lake unless your going there to get in the circle. Try going to retail, or tilted.

  24. christian ortiz on April 10th, 2018 12:36 pm

    Jarron will you be on today? And can i play with you maybe the other guys from yesterday could hop on.

  29. Jarron Bower on April 24th, 2018 2:36 pm

    That explains the why it has over 45 million players, with a reported revenue of $100 million a month.
