Content of the game
Each Fortnite match contains about 100 or more players. When the match starts, players fall from a "flying bus" that crosses over half the map, which is 8 x 8 kilometers in size. After landing, their goal is to find weapons as soon as possible and eliminate other players. The goal of the game is not only shooting, but also building a base is of great importance, allowing players to manage or hide more easily than other players. The construction at Fortnite is divided into 4 elements. The first element is a wall that allows players to bracket against enemies. The second element is a flat base that serves as a platform for crossing some heights. The third elements are the ramp and stairs, which serve to climb to a specific location. The fourth element is the roof and it serves to build the roof.
Construction is done by materials obtained through the demolition of some objects. There are 3 types of materials: wood, stone and metal. Wood is the most easily collected and used most, while the wood is the least durable material. After the wood, it is easiest to collect stone that is a little more durable than wood. And the last material is the most expensive metal, but it is also the most durable.
There is also a storm around the map that is narrowing and shrinking. When a player finds himself in a storm, his "health" gradually diminishes. Victory occurs by reducing the number of players to 1 and the longest-surviving player receives a Victory Royale.
During the course, it is also possible to find items such as weapons, bullets for weapons, items for treatment, explosives, etc.
Weapons are divided into 6 categories, namely:
- gray (uncommon)
- green (common)
- blue (rare)
- purple (epic)
- gold (legendary)
