Fortnite is probably one of the most difficult battle royales out there. There are a lot of things happening in the game simultaneously, making it one of the most fast paced battle royales in the market today.

And since there's so much happening at the same time, getting that "Victory Royale" in Fortnite Season 8 doesn't look that easy.


That being said, here are a few tips and tricks on how to bag that quick win in Fortnite Season 8.

How to win in Fortnite Season 8?

There are a few factors involved with winning a game in Fortnite. Let's view them step by step.

#1 Landing spots

You choice of landing spot in Fortnite Season 8 could potentially act as a deciding factor in Fortnite Season 8.


Depending upon the route that the battle bus takes, you wouldn't really want to land at a spot that is flocked by a lot of loopers.

On the flip side, you don't really want to land at a spot where there isn't much loot available. So choosing a quiet spot to land can be very beneficial when it comes to winning a game in Fortnite.

#2 Weapons

You can't really win a battle royale with just your pick axe. You can, but then again, that would require a lot of luck on your part.

So whenever you land, and wherever you land, make sure you get your hands on weapons that you're comfortable with.

Now, most loopers in Fortnite prefer an assault rifle over any other weapon, so your choice of weapons also matters. Either way, before you venture into deeper territory on the island, it's better to equip some weapon at least.

That being said, having an assault rifle and a shotgun is an effective method of getting a few kills. However, you could always swap out the shotgun with a sniper or an SMG.

Most importantly, equip weapons that suit your playstyle, and you should be good to go.

#3 Health Items

Bandages, medkits and slurp jars are just as important as weapons in Fortnite. Once you've gotten your hands on some weapons in the game, you might want to pay attention to these as well.

These items can help you get out of sticky situations. And you really don't want to get caught with low health after a gunfight.

So make sure to collect these health items, and make sure to heal as and when you get the chance.

Apart from bandages, medkits and slurp jars, you can also rely on foraged items that can be found all over the island. Although these restore small amounts of health, they can come quite handy, even during major gunfights.


#4 Building

Building is a mechanic that makes Fortnite such a unique game in the first place. Although it does take some getting used to, building can actually be a life saver when it comes to gun fights in Fortnite.

But in order to build, you need to have farmed enough building materials. Swinging your pick axe at almost any surface in Fortnite island is enough to help you stock up on building materials.

This is one skill that you need to start getting used to, if not master completely, if you want to win games in Fortnite.

#5 Map awareness

This is probably one of the most important pointers on this list. If you're not aware of your position on the island, you've already lost the game.

The Fortnite island is filled with a lot of terrors. From a raging storm that damages your health, to a set of wild animals, and not to mention the other loopers, Fortnite island can be quite a scary place.


Now, it's really difficult to know where everyone is lurking, but the map can definitely tell you the position of the storm so that you're not caught in it.

And once you've figured out the position of the storm, all you need to do is pay attention to your radar. That should be enough to inform you about the dangers that lurk around you.

#6 Shooting

This is the most important skill that you should have. Almost anyone and everyone can pull the trigger, but hitting the target is what matters.

Always remember to fire in bursts. That will make your shots more accurate. And secondly, when you're shooting, it's better if you crouch around. That would make it difficult for enemies to spot you, and it will make your shots more accurate as well.

That being said, these are the six important factors that you need to take into account when it comes to jumping into a game in Fortnite. Most importantly, these factors hold true for almost every chapter in Fortnite, unless there is a major mechanic change.

Remember to always move from cover to cover. And remember to use a vehicle while rotating. A vehicle is more durable than your character, and that could prove to be an important move in Fortnite.

When it comes to creating strategies in Fortnite Season 8, make sure you take into account your landing spot and the rotation availabilities from that spot.

And there you have it, that's is all you need to know in order to win a game in Fortnite Season 8. It's time you put the theory into practice.

Good luck soldier.
