Fortnite Explained in 60 Seconds


Fortnite is gaining popularity as a free online video game, but a lot of people still need an explanation to help understand what it is. This diagram explains Fortnite in just 60 seconds to get you acquainted with the internet sensation.

Fortnite has two game modes: Battle Royale and Save the World. This video is all about Battle Royale, which is a free-to-play, 3rd-person shooter, 100 person death match.

All 100 players start on the battle bus, which looks like some sort of mashup between a bus and a hot air balloon. All the players skydive down to the island and lands in spots like Lonely Lodge, and Moisty Mire, and Tilted Towers. But don’t drop in Tilted Towers, because then you’ll die.

Once you land on the island, everyone is trying to kill you. The last one standing wins so you need to find weapons, like a scar, or a shotgun, or a sniper rifle, or a crossbow. But don’t use the crossbow, because then you’ll die.

You’ll also need to use your pickaxe to get materials like wood, stone and metal so you can build. Build to get the high ground and also for protection. You can also hide with the bush. But don’t use the bush, because you’ll look like a newb.

Finally, you’ll need to stay inside the eye of the storm. The area gets smaller, which means you’re closer to people trying to kill you, which probably means you’ll die. But if you don’t die, that means you won. Do an emote! An emote is a dance that you can do in the game.

Fortnite attracts many types of players. Like tilted tyrants, master builders, trap trolls, and pros. A big time pro is ninja. He played with Drake. When they play together it’s God’s Plan. When Drake hides in a bush it’s God’s Plant.
