Fortnite on Mobile: Tips to Get Started

The mobile version of the popular game, Fortnite, comes with everything great in the game and makes it possible for you to play it on the go. ​However, when it comes to making moves on a device, compared to a console or a keyboard, it can be quite challenging at first.

That’s why we’ve put together a list of tips that will help you play your best even on a mobile device.

Firing Modes on Mobile

When you start the game on mobile, the first thing you’d want to know how to do is how to fire your weapon. Fortnite ​offers three different ways to do it on smartphones: Auto Fire, Tap Anywhere and Dedicated Button.

The ‘Auto Fire’ is a great start for anyone new to Fortnite on mobile. This mode enables you to look at a target and have the weapon fire. It works amazingly on assault rifles, shotguns, submachine guns, pistols, and chargeable weapons. 

This method doesn’t work on Melee weapons, pickax, sniper rifles and bows, launcher weapons like RPGs or Bandage Bazooka, and throwables like grenades.

The ‘Tap Anywhere’ method is for players who want to have a bit of more control when firing, but do not want to be concerned about tapping on a wrong button. This setting allows you to fire your weapon by tapping anywhere on the screen.

The ‘Dedicated Button’ technique is an advanced option for those who want full control over when and where they fire their gun. As the name of the setting says, the players have to select only a button with which to fire.

Design Your Hud

The HUD Layout Tool helps you take control of the way Fortnite ​plays on your device. You can move or resize buttons easily, as well as add or remove them. Besides the default setting of this option, the game provides players with two extra preset HUD selections: Combat Pro and Builder Pro.

The ‘Combat Pro’ is a small adjustment to the old default HUD. This preset is an amazing design for those who want to concentrate on the battle and minimize icons that sometimes might take up too much of the screen space.

​The ‘Builder Pro’ option is a great layout that keeps the build and combat controls on the screen at all times. This enables players to build cover when faced.

Stick With What You Know

If you still did not get a hold of the mobile, Fortnite on mobile supports the most renowned Bluetooth controllers out there. Therefore, after a quick pairing, you’ll be able to use a controller in the same way you’d use it on a console.
