Fortnite: Battle Royale is a popular free game on the Xbox 1, PlayStation 4, PC, and Mobile. It is a player vs. player game styled like the Hunger Games where there can be only one winner.

There are also different modes where you can team up with other players to play in squads, which are four-people duos, and other limited time modes, like 20 vs. 20 or 50 vs. 50. This game is so cool, so you just got to give it a try if you have the opportunity to. Even though you may suck in the beginning, you have to remember everyone was bad when they first started.

It honestly is such an interesting game in which you can build, fight, and just straight up screw with people as long as you have the skills to pull it off. Here are some tips for kicking butt in Fortnite.

1. Don’t hide and hope you win by default.

This makes you look like such an idiot to everyone. Don’t hide in a stupid bush. Everyone can see you. You are not slick.

2. Figure out how to rearrange your inventory.

Make an order you can remember based on the type of gun. So, when you are in a fight, you know what to change to based on the situation. I personally have my Assault Rifles first, then a shotgun, then an explosive and, most importantly, shields or meds of some kind.

3. Learn how to build.

Fortnite is a building game, so make sure you know how to do it and how to do it quickly. The most important part, when in the middle of a fight, is to have the high ground, but it’s also important to not be too high so the enemy can’t shoot out your base and you have fall damage. Also, make sure you have enough resources to fight if you need to.

4. Learn how to fight.

It seems like something so trivial, but it really matters. Learn how to aim and how to use the various guns and explosives. Use the loading screen to run around and practice aiming a shooting from various angles, while running and while jumping. So, when a fight occurs, you are prepared and know how to fight them off.

5. Don’t land in the same place.

As good as it is to have a set route and know where all of the good loot is, it’s bad to get stuck in a rut and not know your way around the rest of the map. Try to rotate between five or so routes so you eventually know your way around.

6. Stay out of the storm.

Going for that extra kill may not be worth it if you have no meds to get you back up to perfect health. It might just end up getting both of you killed. Don't forget about the storm. You will die.

7. Watch and learn.

I suggest watching a few people play online on either YouTube or Twitch. My personal favorites are Ninja, Muselk, and Lachlan. These people know a lot about the game and also have a lot of fun playing it. A lot of them do challenges to keep it interesting, and a lot of them are into the funny kills.

8. Appreciate the memes.

If you see someone rocket riding or a group of 20 in different squads trying to cover the crater in Dusty Divot, appreciate it. As long as they are not trying to kill you, join in because, honestly, some of it is super cool.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
