The Things You See On the Spawn Island Are Not Yours – Leave Them

When you load the game, you will be taken to the Spawn Island. At Spawn Island, you will see a whole host of scattered weapons such as ammo and guns (sometimes even building materials too). For many beginners, the temptation will be to take their time collecting the various ammo and guns. Well, you need not do this as this is just a waste of time. All guns and ammo that you find at the Spawn Island cannot be taken outside the confines of the Spawn Island borders. Also, note that you need not waste time-fighting or shooting anyone in view at the Spawn Island as zero damage will be inflicted.

Don’t Drop Too Early From the Battle Bus

From the Spawn Island, your next destination will be the fighting arena (where all the action happens). To enter the fighting arena, you are transported from the Spawn Island to the arena by a Battle Bus. The Battle Bus does not land on earth, therefore, you have to ‘jump’ (aided by a glider) when the Battle Bus is hovering around the fighting arena. Many players prefer to ‘jump off’ the very moment that the Battle Bus enters the fighting arena. While this is alright in that you quickly settle down and possibly take cover, it’s advisable for beginners to avoid this and ‘jump off’ several seconds later when the Battle Bus is about to leave the fighting arena. This is so because if you ‘jump off’ later, you get to land in a place that is not overcrowded hence you avoid being shot in the face the very second you land!

The Glider Deploys Automatically

To jump off the Battle Bus, you will use a glider. This glider deploys automatically once the Battle Bus reaches a certain height over the ground below. Therefore, you actually don’t have the power to jump off when you want (as you may have thought from the above) but what you can do is to control the glider so that it lands furthest from the crowded areas.

Drink Small Portions before the Large One

In Fortnite: Battle Royale, there are shields which function more like ‘lives’ in other games. These shields are important as they help to give the player more protection in the game. One way of getting the shields is through consuming liquids in potion bottles. Portion bottles come in two sizes i.e. small bottles and large bottles. It’s advisable to drink small portion bottles at first before the large one because once you consume a large portion bottle you will not be able to consume the small potion bottles.
