Do you already have Fortnite on Android? We teach you 10 tricks to get the most out of the Epic Games game.
Fortnite , the most popular game of the moment, is already on the most powerful mobile platform. Of course, we talk about Android, and that Epic Games released a few weeks ago the beta for many of the compatible devices. Are you one of the lucky ones to have Fortnite for Android? Here are some tricks you should keep in mind.
1. PLAN YOUR FALL
I’m not talking about falling into a “safe place” but planning your fall. That is, where are you going to fall, in what place and if that location is the most correct ? For example, you decide to fall into “Chopped floors” try to fall into a building where many people do not go, the furthest away from the bus zone. It is not advisable to fall into desert locations, such as a house or cabin, since you are likely to find very loose weapons.
2. ORDER INVENTORY
The inventory is where the objects and weapons are stored. You will see a bar in the lower central area where objects, weapons, shields are adjusted … Keeping it tidy is very important for a combat. For example, if you use more a hunting rifle, I put in the right zone to press before. If the shotgun is the weapon you use most after the rifle, put it in second location. I recommend keeping the shields and bandages in the left area, then the objects or grenades and finally the weapons.
Do not forget the traps and objects that remain on the surfaces. Order them according to your preference order. For example, if you think you are going to use the shuttle, add the first one. To do this, you only have to click on the box until it appears.
3. DROP INVENTORY ITEMS
If you want to leave an object or weapon that you do not use and occupy space in the inventory, you can release it. There are different ways. The simplest is by clicking and dragging out from the bottom bar of the inventory . You can also do it by clicking on the backpack. Finally, if you click on a weapon, it will be exchanged for the one you have in your hand. Therefore, it is advisable that you have the weapon you want to exchange ready.
In the update V5.40 Fortnite allows you to drop things from the inventory when we are taking a shield, selling ourselves or taking a sorbet. In addition, you can now drop all the accumulated objects at once from the backpack.
4. CHANGE THE LOCATION OF CONTROLS
Epic Games has set the controls in Fortnite for Android by default. For example, the trigger button is on the right side, the inventory bar on the bottom area etc. Personally, the location of the buttons I like, but I understand that other users do not find it comfortable or that the buttons are too small. Do not worry, this can be changed in a very, very simple way. We can adjust the buttons, change their size or position in the UHD tools of the system. To do this, click on the drop-down menu in the upper area and click where it says “HUD layout tools”. You will go directly to the interface and you can start moving the elements. Adjust them where they are better for you. Of course, remember that later in the game could bother you.
My advice is to start a solo game in the “Playground” mode. As Fortnite allows you to change the controls in the middle of a game, you can apply and test until they work.
5. CUSTOMIZE THE SHOOTING MODE
Another very interesting trick, which we have already talked about in depth in this post, is to change the shooting mode. It is also done from the HUD options and you can choose three different modes, the most recommended for beginners is the automatic shot. The game will shoot for you, you just have to aim.
6. CHECK THE CHALLENGES FROM THE GAME
Another very simple trick. If you have the battle pass or unfinished challenges, you can watch them, even if you are in a game. If you touch the map, the most recent ones will appear in the right area. If you want to see the complete ones, go to the menu in the upper area and click on challenges. Now, select the weekly challenges that you have pending.
7. IT RUNS AUTOMATICALLY
Tap twice on the Virtual Joystck so that the blockage is generated and your character can run automatically. This way you will not have to keep the button all the time. To stop it, touch on the screen or on the button.
8. ENABLE OR DISABLE VOICE CHAT
Fortnite for Android already has voice chat. This can be activated or deactivated in the game settings, and we can also do it from the games.
If you want to have it deactivated permanently, go to the game settings from the menu. Click on the nut and click on the loudspeaker icon in third position. You will see that in the “active / deactivated” options, voice chat appears . Disable it if you do not want to show voice chat. Remember that this can also be done from the game.
Another way to activate it is in the games. When the voice chat is in use a microphone will appear in the upper area, a small icon. Pressing it will activate or deactivate only.
9. PLAY ALONE IN ANY MODE
In Fortnite you can play alone in any mode, even those that are in squadron. Enter the different modes and select the one you prefer. You will see that, in the side area, just above the “Accept” button appears one that says “complete” . If we press, the option not to fill will be activated, and you will only enter the game, without teams. Of course, the other players may have entered squadron mode, so you have to be careful.
10. TRICK FOR ADVANCED: HOW TO USE A PORTABLE CRACK AND CATCH A GUN
Fortnite added a few months ago the portable crack, an object that is stored in the inventory and that allows us to rise to use the parachute . This object takes up space in our backpack, and when we use it, it will stay free.
It is probable that you have never taken that object because you wanted to take something better. But there is a little trick to use the crack and pick up the object. It’s simple, but it requires some practice. First, put the crack in your inventory and get close to the object you want to grab later. Now, use the crack and quickly click on the object. It is important that you take the object immediately after you press the button to apply the effect of the crack. What it will do will be an exchange, but the crack will have already been created and you will be able to use it.
