Playing Fortnite for the first time

When accessing the game for the first time, select the “Battle Royale” mode on the home screen. On the character selection screen, choose the “Squads” option.

Within this new menu there are several options on how to play Fortnite: “Solo”, “Duos”, “Squads”, “Solid Gold V2” and “50 V 50 V2”. The first three are modes in which you play alone, in pairs or as a team. The following modes are considered special.

Then, it’s time to customize your character. Just browse through the “Locker” and “Item Shop” tabs to find emotes, weapons and equipment to customize your combatant. In the “Locker” option, the standard items are listed, while in the “Item Shop” you can buy new items.

When all of these steps are completed the game begins. In the first scene, you are inside a bus attached to a balloon. When you throw it you fall on the map, which corresponds to the fight scenario.

Your first resources must be obtained in the breed. To do this, use the pickaxe to explore the scenario and accumulate items. Weapons may also be available in the vicinity. The items you accumulate can be used to build buildings later.

Every three minutes an electrical storm causes the area of ​​the map to be reduced, which brings it closer to the other players. So keep an eye on the map to avoid staying in an area that will be affected by the electrical storm. If this happens you will be eliminated from the round. The team or the player who stays last last wins the game, destroying all his opponents.
