Fortnite guide: everything you need to know to secure a Victory Royale

We all know that Fortnite is huge right now. How many people play Fortnite, you ask? At least 45 million, according to Epic. That's a pretty crazy figure, and although Fortnite Season 4 may be drawing to a close, there's no sign of things slowing down as we've recently had everything from stink bombs to shopping carts added (and shopping carts taken away again). With Fortnite Season 5 just around the corner, expect a new theme and plenty more changes to come.
