How to Power the Fortnite Weapon?

Even though you’re a veteran Fortnite player, you may still need the way to power the weapon in Fortnite. However, the weapon is the major item in Fortnite that the players should understand how to use and power it a lot. If you feel that you don’t power any weapons in Fortnite yet, don’t worry you’re not alone.

In this post, we’re going to share how to power the Fortnite weapon. Here are the tips that we can share to you:

  • Let’s crosshair smaller

This is a very effective tactic in most FPS games and in Fortnite Mobile it’s not that different. Wait a few moments for your crosshair line to shrink before firing again. The smaller your crosshair, the more accurate the shot will be. This is very useful when you shoot from a distance.

  • Aim Inward

Once fired, a bullet can fly anywhere in the spread or cone from your point of aim. This is referred to as Bloom. That means your bullets will not always hit the center point of your aim, especially when using a rifle.

For better results, aim inward can practice keeping as much of your opponent’s body as possible in the crosshair. Don’t take the risk of letting only certain parts go inside. From here you will feel the rapid development in matters of targeting the enemy and dealing damage as quickly as possible.

  • Take Burst

When dealing with enemies, shoot in short bursts instead of emptying a full magazine in one go. This is another tactic that appears in most of the FPS. Taking short pauses between 2 second shot bursts will minimize weapon recoil and will go a long way toward targeting enemies.

  • Shoot at the Top

Once your accuracy improves, make sure to always aim for the chest or head. This is your opponent’s most vulnerable area, meaning this is where you can deal the most damage.

  • Train your aim at Spawn

When there are lots of players running around the spawn location, now you can use it to train your aim by targeting these players. So that when the game starts you can better aim your weapon at your fast-moving enemy. Do this every time you spawn so that you get more familiar with the weapons you use.

  • Protect the left side of your character

The last tip is when you shoot, try to protect the left side of your character. Fortnite Mobile doesn’t yet provide a feature to change the shooting position so that when you zoom in while shooting, your character’s position tends to lean to the right.
