Fortnite Tips

If you're new to Fortnite Battle Royale then you may be looking for some pointers to get started, or if you're a more experienced player then perhaps you'd like to top up your existing knowledge. Either way, take a look at our Fortnite tips for all the things you should know before playing.

Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges Guide

Every week, all Fortnite players get three Weekly Challenges to complete, with Battle Pass holders receiving an additional four Battle Pass Challenges to take on, which level up their characters and unlock new items such as outfits and emotes. Some are straightforward, whereas others require certain actions to be performed or collectibles to be found, and we've got everything covered in our regularly updated Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges guide.

Fortnite Hunting Party Challenges Guide

If you manage to beat all of the Battle Pass Challenges for a week, you'll also complete a Hunting Party Challenge. This awards you with a new loading screen, which hides a secret clue to reveal the location of some bonus Battle Stars or a unique banner. We've got all of these secrets solved in our Fortnite Hunting Party Challenges guide.

Fortnite Tier 100 Challenge Guide

What happens when you earn enough Battle Stars to reach Battle Pass Tier 100? The answer is you unlock one final set of challenges to complete to unlock the best skin - Dire for Season 6 - and you can see exactly what they are in our Fortnite Tier 100 Challenges guide.

Fortnite Chest Locations

One of the keys to achieving a Victory Royale is grabbing decent weapons, and best way to do this is by popping open some chests. Follow our Fortnite chest locations guide to find all the possible chest spawn locations in each named area of the map.

Fortnite Weapons Guide

With so many different weapons available and only five slots to keep them in, it can be hard to decide what to take with you and what to discard. If you're looking for advice, then read our Fortnite weapons guide to find out which are the best guns and learn some strategies for victory.

Fortnite Llama Locations

If you're lucky enough to spot a llama piñata during a match then make a beeline to grab it, as they're super rare and contain lots of useful items and resources. For more information on these elusive llamas and what they contain, visit our Fortnite Llamas locations guide.

Fortnite Shopping Cart Locations

Technically the first 'vehicle' to be added to the game, Fortnite Shopping Carts may have been superseded by speedier methods of transport but they can still be fun to play around with, and are sometimes required to complete challenges.

Fortnite ATK - aka All Terrain Kart Locations

The Fortnite ATKs are basically souped-up golf buggies, complete with Durrr Burger fuzzy dice and a bounce pad on the roof, and your whole squad can fit inside. Power slide them to build up boost, then release for a sudden burst of speed that can launch you from ramps.

Fortnite Quadcrasher Locations

If you want a more impressive vehicle, then look for one of the Fortnite Quadcrashers as they're the real deal - a two-seater quad bike with a plough on the front and a rocket boost that can propel it through solid structures.

Fortnite Apple Locations

If you're running low on health, then finding some Fortnite Apples could help you out. Admittedly, they only restore 5 health per fruit consumed which doesn't make them super useful, but they are sometimes required for challenges too so it pays to know where to find them.

Fortnite Rifts

If you thought the Fortnite Rifts were gone for good after Season 4 ended, you're very, very wrong. These little glowing blue things are still very much a part of the game, and now you can use them to teleport you back into the sky to help get out of a fight fast, or get closer to the circle as it moves.

Fortnite Starter Pack

If you're looking to stock up on cheap V-Bucks, then the Fortnite Starter Pack is the game's best deal. This includes a couple of cosmetic items and 600 V-Bucks for low price, so take a look and see what's on offer. If you'd prefer to spend nothing at all, we also have information on how to get free Fortnite V-Bucks.

Fortnite Easter Eggs

Hidden around the island are a wealth of nods to past events in the Fortnite world, so if you want to track down some Fortnite Easter eggs we've picked out some highlights in our guide.

Fortnite Save the World guide

With all the hype surrounding Fortnite Battle Royale, it's easy to forget that there's a whole other PvE game available in Fortnite Save The World. Although Epic state that this mode will become free to play at some point in 2018, for the time being you'll have to invest in a Founder's Pack if you want early access. For those playing right now, here's some help for fighting off the zombie hoards.

Fortnite Save The World Tips

Fortnite Save the World features a whole host of layered menus, systems, and meta-game content, which aren't fully explained by the in-game tutorials and can seem overwhelming, so we've broken things down to make it more manageable. If you're playing the PvE mode then you should check out our Fortnite Save the World tips for hints on how to survive, thrive, and win.
