    Is that all for the beta or are you talking about the PC game?

    Im new to Fortnite and am only playing Battle Royale.

    Sucks i can only play solo and nobody on my friendslist is on at the same time as me for duo.

    Yessir, all PvE stuff. I dabbled in the Battle Royal scene for like 2 hours and it felt great, just too many things to grind out in PvE to free up time for me to play PvP.

    Once I am settled in PvE, I will start playing PvP primarily, as it will be a nice change of pace.

    The PVE paid story mode is still in beta, but already deep as fuck. This is one of those games that you can immediately tell was designed for expansion stacked on expansion. Because of its "future times, anything goes" colorfulness it can consistently add any variation of zany gizmos, novelty weapons/playable characters. The more I play PVE, the more I appreciate the flexibility of its loot system. Microtransactions actually suit this system perfectly, and in a way that doesn't punish players who instead grinded legit for their drops. A legendary weapon or character can absolutely get edged out in the same stats as a suped-up "rare" item that has been upgraded a lot. Curating a massive loot collection, upgrading your favorite schematics and trap systems, designing your play style and perks alongside other players doing something totally different make the game's PVE coop a must-buy IMO

    Just buy the cheapest story mode unlock you can find, you'll be drowning in glorious loot soon after anyway

    ITT no one gives a flying mention of the Japanese original Battle Royale film and it makes me a teeny bit sad

    Arma didn't invent 'makeshift weapon salvaging in a steadily shrinking map'

    Do it sooner rather than later because you'll want the Halloween bonus content to boost you right now -completing those side missions alone earns players legendary loot packs, never mind all the xp and main mission drops. There are a ton of really good reasons to level up your loot and characters before PVE drops free. If you buy no other game this month, make it Fortnite PVE because its loot system, base system, squad system and other gameplay dynamics are deeper than deep

    With the highest console sensitivity enabled it still feels 10 times slower than many modern shooters, but I suspect that was to balance PVP and PVE to force players to team up to fight, rather than destroy everything in rinse/repeat swivel clicks by yourself

    Quentin Tarantino rates it as his favourite film ever made. The man knows his stuff.

    Holy shit was the second one a stinker though.

    Yea but Tarentino also studied every genre in the book, poured over hundreds of hours of film and then made roughly 398 grindhouse B movies in a row

    Watch any PVE mission vid on youtube and you'll get why scrounging mechanical parts out of fire hydrants currently makes my dick hard

    The one reason I'm starting to like Fortnite over PUBG is that when I play Fortnite, even when I lose, I feel like I'm getting better. I'm learning how to use the guns, I'm learning to use the crafting system better, I'm getting better at finding chests, etc.

    PUBG I feel like I never get better at the game's mechanics, because I could play for a 2-3 hour session and only actually get into 4-6 firefights where I can get a handle on the shooting mechanics.

    I know, I know. PUBG has/had more players, but this isn't a PUBG thread.

    That was in the response that I know I will get from this video by the way...

    I just started playing last night. So far I like it, even though I'm pretty abysmal. I was debating playing that or PubG, and Fortnite won being free and all.

    You all start off with empty inventories. Some people like to drop in remote locations to make gearing up easier, some people like to spawn in high populated areas for that initial rush of finding a weapon and killing peeps.

    But like I said, everyone starts with nothing.

    what are the weapons for in the waiting area? just to mess around with? I have dropped in and when landed got shot right away, thats why I thought some started with weapons. I guess some people just know the maps and where to land to get weapons right away then

    Basically, yea. They're just for messing around.

    The reason you got shot right away is because people make it a point to land as quickly as possible on a spot they know spawns guns.

    I usually land on the roof of the White House at anarchy acres or fatal fields because a ton of weapons spawn in the house and there's 2 possible chests that spawn in that house. If I can land there before anyone else, I'll kill them before they get a chance to shoot back.

    Of course that's a somewhat popular area to land, so you'll usually have to kill 2 to 4 people before you leave. Im only able to do it about like 60-70% of the time, but if you pull it off, you end up with a crap ton of loot. Ready for mid/end game.

    And if you fail, it's a short game and you don't waste time being underequipped in the late game against what are inevitably the best players on the field.

    If you're learning, I'd say pick a spot to land and try to land there every single game. Get to know the place, where things spawn (especially chests), etc. That's how I got better at surviving early game. Once you know the area well, you can predict what people do, which buildings they'll go to, etc.

    Other than that, learn how to aim like this guy:
