Here are some tricks that will help you in avoiding these mistakes and give you an advantage over any opponent.

The fastest rotation trick for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5

Rotating fast and escaping the storm is one of the most basic requirements to win a game in Fortnite. In Chapter 2 Season 5, a lot of pros have been using the Snowy Flopper to enhance their mobility. You can do the same by simply building a ramp, using the Snowy Flopper, and building backwards to ice skate your way to the safe zone.

To further improve this trick, combine the Snowy Flopper with Peppers and an Impulse Grenade. Top5Gaming claims that this leads to players traveling 250 metres in 14 seconds.

Start the game with good loot and make the best out of these weapons

Starting off a game with good loot is essential to win early fights. Surprisingly, this is achievable through the Color Blind settings in the game. Switch to the Tritanope mode and adjust the strength to 8. Apparently, this over saturates the pink and purple colors on the Llamas, making them visible from long distances.

After gathering the loot from Llamas, focus on efficiently utilizing weapons like the Harpoon gun. It deals 75 damage, breaks structures in single shots, and pulls the enemies towards you.

Even though spamming this weapon seems like a decent strategy at first glance, you must avoid it. Instead, shock wave yourself in the air and pull the enemy. This is not only an easier play to make, but guarantees an elimination every time.
