Here are our Hints for Fortnite on Nintendo Switch. The most trustworthy items get the most 'thumbs up' from our users and appear nearer the top!
Gun rarity - From worst to best. White/common, green/uncommon, blue/rare, purple/epic, gold/legendary. Always swap out your common items for the rarer variants when you can.
Shield - Shields gives you extra health so they're worth having! Big shields give you 50 shield, mini shields give you 25 (but cannot be used after 50 shield so use them first!), slurp juice gives you 75 shield or health (prioritising health), chug jug maxes out both shield and health.
(PC) Set your keybinds! - Click settings, then keybinds, and customize to your preference. Make sure to do your building key binds because building is a very big part to being successful in Fortnite.
(PC) Stretched resolution - In your windows search bar type “run” then type in on the run “search %appdata%”, then click appdata, local, fortnitegame, saved, config, windowsclient, then right click on game user settings and click properties, untick read only apply, double left click game user settings then look for:
and change your resolution to make targets bigger and easier to hit! I recommend 1440/1080.When done tick the read only box and load up fortnite.
Where to drop depending on your playstyle - For a lot of kills drop somewhere where the bus is heading over but is also a normal popular location such as Tilted Towers, Retail Row, Salty Springs, o rPleasants Park.
But if you want no one troubling you then drop somewhere far from the bus and where nobody lands. Maybe even unnamed locations such as on top of the mountain on B,4 Or on top of B,6 also J,6 and D,2.
Practice, practice practice! - Play your friends or just practice building in playground to improve your skill and give you a better chance to kill other players in real games
Skydiving - Dont skydive directly over your land location because the game makes you pull out your glider which slows you down a lot so you can glide to your location and be first there.
Use the third person view to your advantage to check corners where your suspicious or potential campers are!
Dont always head to the center of the storm because then you'll have people at all sides of you making it more difficult to defend. Instead try and head to the periphery of the zone with ideally a good vantage point and/or cover.
On the later zones head for natural high ground that can't be destroyed such as mountains.
Super launch pad tip! - Place 1 floor and on the floor place a launch pad, then on the end of the floor place a bounce pad. Next run into the bounce pad and you'll bounce into the launch pad making you go higher.
OP sniper trick! - This trick lets you snipe through a tiny gap making it almost impossible to get shot through! Place a ramp and edit right side forward, top side left, and and left side down. Then place a wall and edit out the bottom right corner. A hole should appear on the right side of the construction that you can snipe through whilst keeping you protected!

Suprisingly enough, dancing changes your hitbox as you move. So when in doubt, bust a move
While switch may not have pretty graphics, or the best ram, It has the best controls. H.D. rumble allows you to feel sneaking enemie's footsteps, While motion controls allows speedy shooting, precice aiming with snipers, and quicker building.
