It means to live longer in a match than other players. Your kills don't matter. The players you see don't matter. If you are in 100 player match and you are the 90th player to die (putting you in 11th place), then you outlived 89 other players.

This has worked for me when transferring it from laptop to my PC: Download the Epic launcher yourself. Install the Epic launcher Example C:Program Files\Epic Games (or some other path) Attempt to install Cancel the install and look for the folder with download files (usually in the epic games directory) Delete the downloaded files there (keep folder intact)...

Fortnite relies on players reporting you for AFKing for bans. In addition, the only real mentions I can find of people being permabanned for going AFK has 3 major similarities: They're repeat and serial offenders who get multiple reports for going AFK every match; They weren't just AFKing for several minutes, but rather actively using macros and bots to ...

It does not provide any gameplay advantage to thank the bus driver. It is just a little fun thing, probably based on the "thanking the bus driver makes you a better/more successful person" meme.

As @Kevin stated, this can be easily confused with graphical effect Bloom without knowing the context in which the term is being used. In the context of shooter games, the term is known as Reticle Bloom and is very similar to the term Weapon Spread. Reticle Bloom and Weapon Spread both relate to the loss of accuracy when firing, but the difference is where ...

There are few reasons and/or strategies either way. You should concentrate on the alive and shooting enemie(s) instead of killing off the defenceless ones. The knocked out opponents will still be there after your next fight, but if you start finishing them immediately, their friend(s) will come and kill you and you've lost the game. Eventually you will ...

The banners on the mountain tops are linked to a challenge that comes with the battle pass. You go to them and collect them, after which you will gain 5 battle stars as a result. This is only important if you own the battle pass. This was introduced in week 6. I have added a link that shows you where they are and what they "Do" so you can get a better ...

From what I understand, these watermarks generally show up in Alpha/Beta/Early Access games. Generally, they all have a similar format, consisting of some sort of unique identifying number; often along with the game name, the beta version, and your username. There can be multiple uses for this. Bugs/Information - The watermark can provide build ...

The majority of the time most online/multiplayer activity on PS4 games requires a Playstation Plus membership. Same thing applies for Xbox Gold membership for Xbox games. But not always the case as the Battle Royale does NOT require PS Plus. Source here.

It has the most chests-per-square in all of Fortnite, with 40 chests in a POI* (source). POI's are roughly 3/4mp²** It is nearest to the centre of the map, and is always partially, fully or near to the storm. Worst case scenario, you may have to cross the river to enter the circle, which is only about 100m away. The more people go there, the more people ...

Though there is no set in stone ruleset regarding dropping in tilted towers, the general accepted reason(s) is/are: A lot of loot, if you manage to survive and come out on top you almost certainly have a wide and/or good variaty of weapons at your disposal.

Objects in the terrain and the height of the terrain can affect your glider deployment height. If you dive-bomb above a tree you will deploy earlier because of the tree. Same goes for houses, mountains, cars, rocks. You want avoid these. A general rule of thumb is to avoid dropping on objects and aim for the lowest part of the ground. Also, you kind of have ...

They aren't different. The Supply Llama is the same thing as what you are calling a Loot Llama. This is the only llama in the game. For more information about Supply Llamas, read up on their wiki page.

Rotation is a term used in quite a few games, mainly tactically. In terms of Fortnite it means to have a path to follow from one point to another. For example, if you dropped paradise palms and the circle is centered on dusty divot, you want to get as much gear as possible before getting to the ending circle, so you would change your rotation around this. ...

Its a part of the new game mode you mentioned, Soaring 50's. I have yet to play it myself, but IGN has posted an article about it. The first paragraph has the information you're looking for. First up is Soaring 50's, which adds a new dimension to Fortnite's 50 vs. 50 mode by letting players glide all over the map. Instead of only being able to use ...

The pumpkin rocket launcher was a skin for the rocket launcher that Epic Games released for the Halloween event in Fortnite. This weapon uses the same ammo as the normal rocket launcher and you can ride it. The only difference is that it is larger, so easier to ride, and the sound effect was more Halloween themed, as it had a ghostly laugh whenever you shot ...

This is a very complicated question that doesn't have a nice, clean answer. I will post all the information I can find about this phenomenom here, and I encourage you to do the same.

Well if you like building battles then rushing towers should be relatively easy as most techniques rely heavily on building. The techniques used to rush a tower are varied and depend on many factors: What items you have(launchpad,explosives etc.) The amount of materials you have The design of the tower and its height If the person in the tower hasn't ...

Official reddit post and the same post on the Epic Games forums: We are re-enabling the "Custom Matchmaking" button on PC. Why? To test private matches.

No. The Fortnite queue is caused by a large influx of players all trying to log in at the same time. Because Epic Games (the developers) do not have separate login servers to differentiate between the Save the World and Battle Royale players, everyone has to go through the same queue. This can cause long wait times, regardless of which version of the game ...

When aiming with aim-assist your center, where your bullet will hit, follows a little when your target is moving. How much it will affect on your accuracy depends on your skill to aim moving targets.

Your character dies when you quit a match in progress, and all your items are dropped as usual.

This may be many things. Your mouse may be malfunctioning or broken, as that would explain random shooting. This may also be lag, or from Fortnite itself with the massive influx of players joining and playing the game. I suggest seeing if this has been happening on other games, and if not, seeing your ping and FPS in Fortnite.

The simple fix is you stop playing until the laptop cools down. If you want to keep playing, you can try a laptop cooling pad. However, the nature of a laptop is that they do not handle extended intense use very well. I own a gaming laptop and the thing has heatsink and vents all around the base. Even with this setup, the laptop can get hot enough that I ...

The RPG has a one-square damage range. When you build 4 walls around you, the space in between is called a square, which there are thousands of on the map. If someone shoots an RPG and it lands exactly a square away from you, it will deal damage - but if you moved a tiny bit back before, you would be alive. The same applies to grenades, boogie bombs, smoke ...
