Fortnite Basics

Fortnite is the name of a new hit game that was released in September 2017. When it was first released, there was very little hype about it and it didn’t get much attention upon its initial release. Due to that simple fact, the company that created it decided to offer a part of the game for free and since the game has become probably the most popular in the world now. There are many aspects that make the game unique.

First of all, it’s a third-person shooter but very lively in its positioning, so it’s not very serious in a way. Apart from being a shooting game, you can harvest materials like wood, brick, and metal and create different building structures like ramps, walls, floors, and really anything else imaginable. The object of the game is to be the last player or team standing. The game begins with one hundred players launching from a school bus held in the air by a hot air balloon onto a giant island with different towns and locations marked on the map. Each person gets off the bus, and once they land, they loot weapons and shields before someone else finds the loot first. There are many different types of weapons like shotguns, rifles, rocket launchers, and many other different weapons to find. Players open golden chests that give you multiple items that can be used in the game, such as potions and weapons, as mentioned above. Once a player has the loot he wants, he must move into the storm circle as the outer storm slowly approaches and forces the players to band together. The storm will slowly decrease his health if he gets caught in it until eventually his health is depleted. Once your health is depleted, there is no respawn in the same game as you have to start over from the beginning.

The ultimate goal is to be the last one standing and achieve a “Victory Royale”. It is a difficult feat as there are many highly skilled players who play and compete viciously on a regular basis. The key that most of these highly-skilled players have found is being able to build more efficiently and quickly in the heat of a firefight. These builders are usually the most skilled players and tend to earn the most in the games they play. Inexperienced players who are still learning the general flow of the game often don’t find their first win until they play many games. As time went on, the developers of the game added special limited time game modes into the mix to keep the game interesting and entertain their die-hard players and not get bored after so long. The mode that has become the favorite of many is the High Explosive mode which removes all the normal weapons and leaves the players wandering around the map finding grenade launchers and rocket launchers and some other special weapons to win the game. These additional modes provide a change in skill and allow newer players to get more used to items that are less prevalent in normal mode and allows them to experiment more freely so they are not caught off guard in normal mode.

Overall, the game is fun for all ages and offers a very good challenge for the competitive person in all of us. Fortnite is a fad for now, but expect it to stick around for a while longer as more and more players continue to join the ranks as the day goes on.
